5 Reasons Why Quality Pyjamas Are Worth the Investment

A good night's sleep never looked so good.

The vast majority of us care about the clothes we wear outside of the house and less about what we wear inside the house. Perhaps it's because we don't want to spend money on clothes that very few people will see and we might not value dressing well at home. At Bed Threads, we believe this area of fashion is a bit underrated and that it’s a good idea to be thoughtful about what you go to bed in, in particular.

Getting a good night’s sleep plays a vital role in our health and well-being, so it makes sense to put yourself at every advantage possible to get a good rest every night. And one of the biggest impacts on how you sleep each night is what you wear.

Below we look at five reasons why investing in high-quality sleepwear is a good idea.

1. They'll improve your sleep quality

If you are struggling to get to sleep, it could be because of your choice of sleepwear. Overheating and being generally uncomfortable during sleep can be particularly unpleasant and lead to broken sleep and uncomfortable night sweats. Opting for good materials that are breathable and cut in a way to maximise comfort can improve sleep quality.

Natural flax linen has a weighty, tactile feel that's incredibly cosy and comforting, yet breathable enough to sleep in all year round.

2. They double as daywear

From time to time, we’re all guilty of desperately not wanting to get changed out of what we’ve worn to bed. Our linen sleepwear, particularly the oversized shirts, is stylish enough to proudly wear out of the house without feeling judged by the neighbours.

3. They last longer

As well as being better for the planet, higher-quality pieces will often last longer due to superior materials and construction. Linen outperforms other materials in several respects. Boasting incredible tensile strength, it's more durable and hardwearing compared to cotton or wool. Linen is one of the strongest natural fibres there is, approximately 30% thicker and stronger than cotton.

Unlike machine-woven cotton which can succumb to wear and tear over time, flax linen improves with age and benefits from a low maintenance approach to care–yes, that means no ironing or dry cleaning necessary. Investing in quality linen pyjamas will see you through for years to come.

4. They help condition your body for sleep

The activities that you do during the evening can have a significant impact on your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep each night. Slipping into soft linen pyjamas can be a luxurious addition to your bedtime ritual that signifies it’s time to snooze and condition your body to associate them with sleep time.

5. They’re an act of self-care

Feeling good and investing in yourself is important and it's no secret that self-care practices benefit our physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being. Choosing the right pyjamas that suit your body and personality is just a simple way of looking after yourself.
