20 Beautiful Pajamas to Wear on Days You're Stuck in Bed


Spending a lot of time in your pajamas is a fact of life for many in our chronic illness community. You might end up staying in your pajamas all day thanks to pain and fatigue, whether you’re in bed, curled up on the couch or in the hospital. No judgment from our community — why put on tight, uncomfortable jeans or a tailored blouse when you could snuggle up in soft, cozy PJs?

However, if you wear PJs a lot, you know that sometimes, you get tired of your same-old T-shirt and sweats. And putting on nicer clothes can actually help lift your mood and make you feel fresh. To help solve the problem of needing to wear pajamas, but also wanting to feel fashionable, we found 20 beautiful pajamas that will elevate your sleep style. We included a range of stores and price points in case you’re a chronic warrior yourself, or if you’re reading this because you’re looking for a gift for a chronically ill loved one (hint: everyone loves getting cute new PJs!).
