Sleepwear is one of the most "neglected" and taken for granted piece of clothing nowadays. We usually do not give much thought to it as long as we slip on something loose and comfortable. In most cases, it's an old unflattering shirt or shorts that may not even be in its best condition. Some may not even care if it's tattered or has a loose garter at all.
However, the recent events made me realize how important they are and here are some reasons why you should include wearing decent sleepwear as part of your new year's resolution:
1. Improves Sleeping Condition - The clothes we wear plays a huge factor in getting a good night's sleep. Find one that helps regulate the body temperature. Make sure that you won't feel so warm while sleeping. Doctors say that when you feel so warm or hot while sleeping, your body does not produce enough melatonin or "sleep hormone" which is important in making you sleep better.
2. Boost Self-Esteem - Wearing something nice and soft makes you feel pretty and sexy. This allows you to feel more confident and therefore helps boost your self-esteem. If you're married, I am pretty sure your husband would appreciate seeing you looking more presentable in bed.
3. Emergencies - Earthquakes, fires, and other emergencies will definitely not give you the time to change for "more presentable" clothes. Can you imagine yourself running outside your house or apartment in your bathrobe only? I guess it's self-explanatory but yes, we can never be too ready. :)
But the more important question is --- how do you find the right sleepwear?
First, Select the Right Fabric. Alex's Secret, my favorite place to order pajamas offers different types of sleepwear. The most popular choices are silk and cotton sleepwear.
If you are wondering what's the difference, silk is considered a hypoallergic material and less prone to dust and dirt as it has the tendency to just slide down. It provides a smooth sensation that many prefer. Personally, I find it cooler to skin too.
Cotton, on the other hand, is softer and can readily absorb moisture. Some consider it to be more comfortable and easier to maintain. It is less delicate compared to silk.
Now, once you have decided on the type of fabric, Check the Cut and Silhouette of your Sleepwear. Make sure that you get sleepwear that's loose and isn't constricting as this will help you stay comfortable for a good night's sleep. It is recommended that you opt for one size bigger than your usual size. You can also decide if you want it to be paired with shorts or pants depending on your preference.
Lastly, have fun and Choose your Design, Alex's Secret offers a lot of different designs, patterns, and colors. You'll definitely find something that you'll love and rest assured that it's worth every penny. :)
