What Your Sleep Attire Says About You

Ah, sleep; sweet, sweet sleep. For an activity that lacks both movement and consciousness, it sure is enjoyable. However, some of us sleep more fitfully than others, and the clothes we wear to bed could be the culprit. Did you know, though, that there’s more to your bedclothes than their design? What you wear to bed could point to your personality and individual values, let alone the quality of sleep you get every night. If you’re curious about what your bedtime attire says about you, keep reading.

An old T-shirt


You’re a sensible, laid-back person who values comfort above all else when sleeping. Who can blame you? If done right, sleep can be the most comfortable activity of all. Better yet, you should know that by wearing a loose T-shirt to bed, you’re doing your body a favor. Loose-fitting clothing not only helps you breathe better but your body, too. Especially in the case of our southern regions, loose-fitting underwear can keep that area healthy as well. Moreover, wearing binding clothing to bed has been shown to inhibit melatonin production or the hormone that helps us drift off to dreamland. In a word, you can’t go wrong with loose-fitting bedclothes.



Clothes, like real clothes


You’re either an extremely hard worker or a complete lazybones. There’s no in-between with this one. One thing’s for sure, though: wearing particular articles of clothing to bed can negatively impact your health. Here’s a great example: what woman hasn’t fallen asleep in her bra before? Sure, it’s uncomfortable, but not too painful to do something about it before you drift off. However, wearing a bra to bed can cut off your circulation mid-slumber. Moreover, you might have trouble breathing deeply since the bra is constricting your chest. As tempting as it is to fall into bed after a long day of work, do yourself a favor and change into something loose-fitting first; your body will thank you.



Pajamas


Pajama wearers want the best of both worlds when it comes to sleep: style and comfort. Thankfully, you can have both when you wear these stylish bedclothes of Indian origin. Pajamas come from a combination of two Hindi words, ‘pae’ and ‘jama,’ which refers to an article of clothing worn on your legs. Europeans were the first people to wear them to bed, and they were considered quite exotic until the modern era. However, what kind of pajamas are best for a good night’s sleep? If you’re looking for ultra-breathability, consider cotton pajamas. On the other hand, silk pajamas are a wonderful thermoregulator, meaning they’ll keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If you want to come to bed fashionably comfortable, don’t forget to put on your pajamas first.



Lingerie


Unless you’re a supermodel who happens to live on the French Riviera, we all have a pretty good idea of why you’d wear lingerie to bed. We’ll stop there!



Of course, a lot of this is in good fun. However, there’s no denying the health benefits you can reap from wearing soft, loose-fitting clothes to bed. Thanks for reading, and have a good night’s sleep!
