Spending more time at home inevitably means spending more time in your pjs. But what are the perfect ones for you? There are a lot of choices out there for cute plus size pajamas, so let’s walk through some of the great choices!

Whether you are in a warm or cool climate, you like to have a cool or cozy sleep, there is definitely a set of plus size womens pajamas for you. So, which will you like best?

What are pajamas?

Pajamas or PJs are simply clothes you sleep in. Because you wear them to bed they’re often soft, comfortable and easy to move in. Many of them are made of lighter and breathable material, but there can be some situations (like camping) where you’d want your plus size pajamas to be warmer.

You do not need to wear pajamas if you don’t want to. Plenty of people sleep in the nude, myself included when it’s super hot. But having something pajama like or even some loungewear is a good idea. Unless you’re more comfortable walking around the house naked. In that case, you go girl!

I should also note that in Canada (along with the UK and many other places in the world) we write it as “pyjamas.” However, most of the readers of HelloTaee are American so, in this case, we’ll go with pajamas or pjs.

Plus size pajamas styles

When it comes to plus size pajamas, there are a ton of different choices you can go with. Shorts, plants, dresses, even lingerie! Whatever you need, the perfect set of PJs for you is out there.

Plus size pajama shorts set

I really like a ladies plus size pajamas short set for warmer-weather climates and summertime. While you can keep it classy with a matching set, the short pant style helps keep you cool. 

This IN’VOLAND two-piece pj set has cute accent piping and a button-up shirt which can also make them great for a date-night set if you’re going for cute and casual. They are made of a viscose and spandex mix, making them stretchy and comfy.

I also tend to change into a short set before bed because I tend to be hot when I sleep. So while I will wear a longer lounge set around the house, I switch to shorts right before bed so I keep cool and help lessen any night sweats. 

A fun, casual and comfy choice is the printed pajama set by Beocut. They feature a cute beachy-feel design, casual lines and a drapy feel. Not to mention they’re currently on sale for less than $30! What a steal.

Looking for something to pair with your new plus size pjs? How about some comfy slippers!

Plus size loungewear set

Getting your hands on a full-length plus size pajama sets is ideal if you live in a cooler place like here in Alberta, Canada where we’re still seeing snow in April. They have full-length pants and a top that comes along with it so you stay fashionable and comfortable. 

While a pair of full casual nightwear like this Milumia looks silky and luxurious, the price tag on this polyester set is WAY less expensive so even if you’re on a budget, you got this! If you’re looking for a luxury set that’s cheap, this might be for you.

You don’t have to go all-out with silk-looking plus size pjs, a super cute pant and tee combo work just fine. I really love a matching set of pjs for a day lounging around catching up on your favourite show on Netflix or digging into a good book. They give a clothing-like feeling that’s fit for the couch! 

A comfy pair of cozy and cute pajamas like these soft full-length ones are perfect if you’re spending an evening solo or with someone you know pretty well.

They’re not a sexy as a babydoll or a cute nightgown, but the comfy polyester-spandex blend will have you lounging about in style. And the full-leg coverage will keep you warm in cooler months.  

Plus size nightgown

Nightgowns are a great choice if you like a more feminine flow in your plus size pajamas for women. They offer a cooling and comfortable feel and can add a tad bit more of a sexy flare, even if you’ve chosen something that’s got a cuter look.

The IN’VOLAND sleep shirt has a casual comfortable look and feels like putting on an oversized shirt. It’s made of stretchy cotton with high-quality stitching and fabric, which makes it cozy, comfortable wear. 

One of the best things about a nightgown is that it doesn’t feel as restricted as some of the other choices out there. Because of the open bottom, you can spread out and get comfortable at night. 

If you’re looking for a sexier wear but don’t want to go full-on babydoll, something like the Shadowline nightdress is an ideal choice. It’s made of a polyester-spandex blend, has a cute polka dot and rose pattern and a fashionable ruffled hem.

Plus size capri pj set

Sometimes you simply can’t get the temperature right. You’re a little hot and a little cold, and can’t figure out what to wear, then the cropped PJs might just be the right pick for you. They provide a comfortable lounge set but aren’t too cool for a not-as-warm night. 

The Karen Neuburger Capri pajamas plus size pick is a cute and comfortable choice for the average homebody. They are made of a cotton and polyester blend with an elastic waist for ultimate comfort. Lightweight and comfy, they are a great choice. 

Cropped pjs work well for summer or winter months, regardless of the weather especially if you sleep hot. They also work amazingly for just lounging about the house or doing your Sunday baking. 

If you’re looking for a more summertime wear, the Latuza plus size pajama set are an ideal choice. They have a Capri pant and a tank top, perfect for cooler weather. They also come in three fashionable colours including blue, pink and purple.

Stay comfortable in a pair of plus size leggings!

Plus size long johns

If you are Canadian, you know all about owning a good pair of long johns. Whether you’re living in a cool climate or you’re packing for your next camping trip, these are essential to have in your pajama wardrobe.  

While long johns seem old school and maybe a bit old wild west, you can totally get a cute pair like the NUONITA thermal underwear set. These are made of cozy, warm material to keep you warm.

Long johns are great whether you are outside or inside. You can wear them under your everyday clothes if you’re going to be spending a lot of time outside. Or you can simply wear them to bed. Either way, they’re comfy and cozy.

These super cute IN’VOLAND long johns create a great base layer of soft polyester and spandex for superior warmth. You can wear it as a base while you run or hike in the cold weather, or you can use them as your typical nightwear.

Plus size lingerie

Are you feeling sexy? Lingerie is for when you want something to wear in the bedroom but you’re not quite ready to go to bed yet—if you know what I mean.

We often choose lingerie because we want to turn on someone else—usually as a pre-curser to sex. But when it comes to picking lingerie out for you, you need to make sure that you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing.

There are plenty of choices when it comes to plus size lingerie. Which means that there is a choice out there for anyone’s style. Styles include:

  • Sexy bra and panty set
  • Babydoll
  • Chemise
  • Teddy
  • Playsuit or romper
  • Camisole set
  • Gown

Not all lingerie is comfortable to wear to bed. You’ll probably want to skip wearing a pair of crotchless underwear while you sleep (though, you go girl if that’s your pleasure).

If you’re choosing a piece of lingerie that you want to wear to bed, make sure to choose something that’s softer and less fishnetty. There are plenty of sexy, see-through pieces made for comfort over viewing pleasure!

How to choose the best plus size pajamas for you

Just like when you choose any other piece of plus size fashion, you want to choose your pajamas based on what you’re most comfortable wearing. But you’ll also want to factor in things like the time of year, the warmth of your blankets and how you’re most comfortable moving around.

I tend to air on the side of wearing a short set in the summers and long pants and a cami in the winters. I’m not terribly fond of nightdresses personally, simply because I don’t like my legs rubbing up against each other.

However, I know a number of women that much prefer the freedom of wearing a nightgown. Not to mention the added elegance if you choose something that’s a little sexier.
