18 Best Cotton Pajamas for Women in 2024

Don't get me wrong, there are very few things as comfortable as sleeping in a giant, old T-shirt. But remember, I said very few, meaning there are exceptions. One of them? Quality cotton pajamas. Cotton is a natural material known for its incredible breathability and moisture absorption—not to mention, it's super soft, lightweight, and hypoallergenic. Translation? You absolutely need to add some cotton PJs to your wardrobe for the *coolest and crispest* night's sleep ever.

Whether you prefer to sleep in a matching set, long sleeve, short sleeve, dress, shirt, or nightgown, you'll be pleased to know there are a million and one options when it comes to cotton pajamas—yes, including some good pajama finds on Amazon. However, that doesn't mean just because they're cotton, they're a good choice. That's why I meticulously tested and combed through the internet's reviews of the top-rated cotton pajamas on the market to give you this list of the best of the best:

Now keep reading for the best cotton pajamas for women from brands like Lake, J.Crew, Eberjey, and so many more, including a breakdown on how to find the best PJs and the different types of cotton to know, below. Happy shopping and happy sleeping.

If you were to think of the most classic pair of cotton pajamas out there, you'd get the Signature Long Sleeve and Pants Pajama Set from Boll & Branch. The 100 percent organic cotton PJs are super soft to the touch and only get softer as you wash and wear them.

If you want an affordable cotton pajama set available in a million colors and backed by vetted five-star reviews, opt for this set from Amazon. Oh, and did I mention that they're available on two-day Prime shipping?!

Glowing Customer Review: "These 100% cotton pajamas fit so nicely and are so cozy that I couldn’t help but order two more pairs in a different color! If you’re thinking about getting these, just do it 😊"

Say hello to one of my absolute favorite pajama brands, Lake. Made with pima cotton for a luxurious feel and look, and available in multiple lengths, these bbs are as comfy as they are cute.

Glowing Customer Review: "I purchased a set for me and my daughter and could not be happier! You have to try them to understand that when you are wearing them, it feels like 'nothing!' No heavy-weight material, and the legs do not bunch up when you are sleeping! Love them! Will be buying them again!"

Chances are you've seen this super popular monkey-printed PJ brand, Roller Rabbit. And if you haven't, may I suggest checking them out because they're about to be your new favorite set of super-soft jammies.

Glowing Customer Review: "These PJs are the best things I have ever worn! They are so comfortable and it's so hard to change out of them! I can't tell you how many compliments I have got on these things. I literally am on the website every day!! If I were you, I would definitely buy these!!🩷🩷🐇"

Channel your Cool Girl self with this super tailored, super chic short-sleeve PJ set from J.Crew. You can even wear them out of the house if you ~dare~.

Glowing Customer Review: "I purchased these for my wedding party and me to get ready in the morning of my wedding! I got them monogrammed as well. Was very happy with the quality and comfort of these! They also looked great in photos!"

I absolutely love Print Fresh for its size-inclusive pajamas available in a million patterns and styles. Each design—like this adorable tiger set—is a hand-screen-printed fabric created by artisans in India.

Glowing Customer Review: "These pajamas are the best! I love the print - it’s adorable and vibrant. They are super comfortable while still stylish. I’ve even taken to wearing them out in the evening and morning to walk my dogs. I can’t say enough about these pj’s!"

Hi to my newest daytime and sleep two-in-one set from Eberjey. The super chic design and silhouette makes the perfect summer throw-on outfit that'll take you from day to night bedtime.

Glowing Customer Review: "Love these!! I’ve had a few different Eberjey styles and didn’t think they could be better but these are the BEST! Light and airy, stylish, and cute color! The fabric is everythingggg, feels like sleeping in a cloud."

Aren't these little heart PJs the cutest things you ever did see? Oh, and they're also made from pima, aka the premier cotton weave, so you know they'll be just as soft as they are cute.

Glowing Customer Review: "My daughter loves her super cozy PJs! And they are so soft. She wants to expand the set soon."

If you haven't heard about my obsession with Quince, allow me to shout them out. If you want quality products that usually cost a fortune without the price tag, literally go to the site rn, you won't be disappointed. One of my favorite selects from the brand? These cotton pajamas that look and feel super expensive but are half the price of other competitors.

Glowing Customer Review: "This pj set is so SO nice! Quality cotton has that crisp sheet sound/feel. I’m just so pleased. I bought one in each color, I do think they run a bit large, figuring they would shrink, but there’s no size change—very comfortable."

Yeah, Christmas season may be over, but strap in folks, because we have a long winter ahead of us. Translation? You are absolutely allowed to continue wearing all of your cute festive pajamas, accessories, and clothing. My favorite are these adorable lil cotton bow PJs from Dairy Boy.

Every little touch on these super luxe pima cotton PJ set is *chef's kiss*. From the drop-shoulder top to the pleated bottoms that look more like trousers than cozy jammies, you're getting a quality set with this purchase.

Glowing Customer Review: "These pajamas are the most comfortable I’ve ever worn. They are so soft and wash well. I will definitely buy them in every color."

Screaming in bows and all-things delicate over this absolutely s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g nightgown. Do I need to spend almost $200 on a sleep dress? Probably not, but for this airy lil piece, I'd make an exception.

There's nothing quite like a flannel PJ set in the wintertime for the coziest sleep of your life. These are a pair of classics from L.L.Bean that give you just the *right* amount of warmth without causing you to overheat or sweat.

Glowing Customer Review: "I purchased a pair of the roomy, soft Indigo, Cocoa, and Cream plaid flannel pajamas over the recent 2023 holidays. Thankfully, they fit my 3x size comfortably. This plaid has a retro feel, reminding me of the early 1950s. They are finely stitched, have inseams long enough for my legs, and the plaid matches along the button line, top pocket, and front and back hip."

This classic cotton long-sleeve sleep shirt is my newest favorite piece in my jammy collection. The sleeves are the perfect length so they don't get in the way, and trust me when I say, it feels like I'm wearing ~nothing~ thanks to the airy poplin cotton.

Glowing Customer Review: "This crisp but soft cotton shirt is fabulous! If you love soft, crisp cotton you will understand! I love the masculine style, the button-down front, the collar, and the pin striping. The sleeves aren’t so long that if you try to do dishes they are soaked by the time you are finished! "

Petite Plume may have some of the most luxurious PJs on the market thanks to its blend of 100 percent Peruvian pima cotton. If you're looking for a set that drapes beautifully and has a jersey-soft feel instead of a stiff tailoring look, opt for a pair from the super luxe brand.

Glowing Customer Review: "Excellent! I love the pima cotton and the roomy fit. Wouldn’t ~dream~ of wearing anything else to bed. You’ve got me forever!"

Everyone needs a white cotton nightdress in their pajama collection. Whether you wear it to sleep in or out on a summer day, this gorgeous, breezy nightgown from the Manhattan-based natural and sustainable brand, Salter House is an absolute treat.

Having a bigger chest, there are very few tank tops that I would feel comfortable lounging around in. One of the best? This sleep tank from Hill House that somehow miraculously holds ~le chest~ together sans a bra.

Glowing Customer Review: "Finally, a dainty and comfortable sleep tank that doesn’t let your ladies fall out. This feels sooo soft and secure at the same time. This is a must-have with the sleep shorts! Trust me, you need the set!"

There's something that just feels special about putting on a pretty little sleep dress. This cotton, striped number—with adorable black lace lining—is the perfect chemise if you just wanna feel put together and luxe. Now all you need is a glass of wine.

Though it may seem like all cotton is the same, there are actually several different types that impact the fabric's softness, warmness, and look. Here, I break down the main ones you'll see in cotton pajamas, below:

And remember, cotton shrinks, so it's best to follow the care instructions for the individual PJs—as a rule of thumb, hang dry them.
