Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing reviews. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And though we’ve written about women’s pajamas extensively, with deep dives into the best menswear-inspired pajamas, thermal underwear, and even Christmas pajamas, here we’re zeroing in on the best women’s pajamas on Amazon.

Best-rated women’s pajamas

CYZ Womens Casual Stretch Cotton Pajama Pants

These stretch cotton pajama bottoms have nearly 1,200 five-star reviews, with hundreds saying how soft, comfortable, and durable they are. As one reviewer puts it: “I am so surprised by the quality of these PJs, I will be buying more! I was expecting a thin cotton, but it is more of a thicker, stretchy fabric — more like sweatpants material. The fabric is soft and very comfortable.” Another agrees: “They are soft and flow without being thin, chintzy material.” Another customer describes these pants as “EVERYTHING. The material is lightweight, cool, and very comfortable. Similar to a jersey sheet material but a bit more durable, but just as soft.” They are stylish enough to wear outside, too: “They are nice enough to look athletic when paired with an athletic shirt for leaving the house, too, not just as a PJ.” As another reviewer puts it, “I am very pleased with these pants. I was looking for something to wear around the house that was NOT yoga pants or my jeans. Something that is comfortable, but also looks decent when unexpected visitors show up at the door.”

This cotton-blend short-sleeve nightgown is comfortable, soft, and cool, according to reviewers. “The material is like your favorite t-shirt,” writes a reviewer. It’s lightweight, too — “This is my favorite gown now. I love the feel of it. It’s very nice material. Made to fit comfortably. It’s very breathable, and doesn’t bind anywhere” — making it great for warm weather. As this reviewer writes, “The material is super comfortable. Like wearing a lightweight T-shirt. We have HOT weather out here in West Texas. I was looking for a lightweight nightie and I’ve got it.” Customers also like the prints that it comes in, saying that they’re “very pretty.” As one reviewer sums it up: “I love the way it feels, the way it washes, and the way it looks! My grandchildren love the print. It is holding up well after several washings. It feels so lightweight for our southern heat and humidity.”

And now some micro-picks for every type of women’s pajamas you might be looking for.

“Absolute favorite pajamas,” says one repeat shopper – “I’ve been wearing this brand for more than 20 years” – who, like dozens of reviewers, is a loyal Karen Neuburger pajama fan. “I have at least a dozen of Karen’s pajamas…always perfect,” one writes, while another says, “They last for years, always keep their shape and color.” Another selling point for these pajamas is the fit and feel with more of a quarter of reviewers describing them as soft. One even says “ The material is super soft and launders without shrinkage.”

“These pajamas were excellent quality. They were very soft to the touch,” says a reviewer. Others agree, calling out the soft cotton jersey and the quality of the fabric. “They are soft and well made,” says a reviewer. “They are extremely soft, fit perfectly,” says another. “Great fit, good fabric,” echoes another. “These pajamas exceeded my expectations! Love them: well-made, good sizing, nice looking, lovely colors (I got blue and then lavender), and soft, thick cotton [that’s] warm and comfortable.” They’re also great for warmth without being too hot, as one reviewer explains, “The pajamas are warm enough without being too warm. I did not want a heavy flannel since my body temperature fluctuates. The jersey fabric is very breathable without being too thin.” Another agrees: “I love the weight and feel of these pajamas. Not too heavy like flannel or fleece, but a warm enough jersey knit for colder weather.”

Here’s another classic set, this time made of a viscose that customers love for its softness and comfort. “These PJs are super comfortable: cozy and soft against the skin. The fabric quality seems solid. They’ve been washed a few times and [are] still holding up very well,” writes one satisfied customer. “Wow. These PJs are fabulous. I love the slinky, soft, medium weight fabric. When you slip them on, you will go ahhhhhh, they feel THAT good against the skin,” agrees yet another. As does this one: “They are silky-smooth and so cozy. They are so soft and oh so ‘sleepable.’” This reviewer agrees that the silky material makes the PJs great for sleeping: “These pajamas exceeded my expectations by a mile. They’re made out of the most cool, heavenly knit material that is just slinky enough. They drape beautifully on my body and don’t bind me whatsoever. These are the only pajamas I can sleep in without waking up in the middle of the night and tearing off because I’m bound or otherwise bothered by the bunching of fabric.” Another satisfied customer agrees and finds that they look quite stylish, too: “The fabric is so soft, the drape is elegant, and the cut and detailing make the set look quite smart.”

Best fleece pajama set

From $25

Customers like this fleece pajama set for cooler weather, with hundreds calling out how soft, warm, and comfortable it is: “It is SO warm that I don’t even turn on my electric blanket anymore. And it feels so soft and wonderful against my skin.” “These pajamas give new meaning to the words ‘soft’. and ‘warm’. Once you have worn these PJs you are simply not satisfied with simple flannel pajamas again. These are so soft and warm and blessedly comfortable,” raves a reviewer. “It’s SUPER soft, I mean SUUUPER soft. Really stretchy as well,” agrees another. Another reviewer calls these “quite probably the softest, most cuddly thing I have ever worn in my entire life. They are so unbelievably warm and soft, and have just enough stretch to follow your movements without being restricting.”
