How relaxing it would be to sleep in the privacy of one's home and wearing what else but comfortable sleepwear. Every person has at least one favorite sleepwear that he uses almost everyday because it provides him the freedom to rest as well as to move around just before sleeping.

Sleepwear can refer to pajamas, nightdress, shorts and sleeveless shirts, tees or even boxer shorts for some men. Each person has grown fond with his sleepwear that he usually carries this fondness for that type of sleepwear even when he is already grown up.

It is easy to just choose any drab clothing as sleepwear when a person is still single. Take an old and torn t-shirt and it gets a person sleeping for the night. However, a person who has a sleeping partner should be more careful with his choice of sleepwear.

That sleeping buddy can be anyone from a friend during a sleepover, a classmate during a camping trip, a superior during an out of town meeting or even a new husband. A person should choose his sleepwear well depending on his sleeping partner and their intimacy.

Friends who sleep over in their houses usually favor pajamas as sleepwear because it can still be used comfortably for some of their other activities like watching television or midnight snacks. An employee who goes on an out of town trip and who is bound to share sleeping quarters either with his co-employees or his superior will also be more comfortable wearing a pair of pajamas.

These pieces of clothing are called sleepwear because they are primarily used for sleeping. Thus, sleepwear must conform to the conditions that will provide a person a good night's rest. Sleepwear should be comfortable, keep the wearer in a cool and relaxed mood and served its purposes of providing warmth to the person.

Sleepwear comes in different texture, color and style. There are sleeping wears made of cotton while there are those made of silk or satin. The cloth with which the sleepwear is made really depends on the taste or preferences of the wearer as well as the weather condition.

A person who lives in a country known to have winter all year round would be more comfortable wearing sleepwear that can keep him warm. However, a person who lives in the tropics will be better off in sleepwear that can keep him cool like cotton.

Women however have managed to transform sleepwear from a mere sleeping wear to a fashion statement. Sleepwear nowadays is no longer just clothing for sleeping but also something that reflects the mod of a woman or her fashion preferences.

It looks funny but there are women living in tropical countries without air conditioning in their rooms wearing silky sleepwear just for fashion purposes. They may be wearing glamorous sleepwear but who knows how they can sleep amid the heat and that heap of clothing?

Modern women prefer to wear sleepwear that keeps them fashionable and sexy. Thus sleepwear that is cut fashionably and looks sexy on anyone is the common choice among the new generation.

But whatever type of sleepwear a person chooses he should make sure it fits in to the purpose of wearing that clothing item which is really to provide him a comfortable and a relaxing sleep.
