Different Types of Nightwear for Women

1. Short Cotton Nighties

The perfect combination of comfort and cuteness, the short cotton nighties from Zivame are among the best nightwear for ladies, and especially so during the summers. The breezy styles are defined by their dress-like silhouettes that usually end at a knee-level length. They are tailored from soft cotton for utmost comfort and come with colourful prints to add the right amount of fun and vibrance to your sleep routine.

2.Pyjamas and Pyjama Sets

Pyjamas might just be one of the most common types of sleepwear, found in every woman’s wardrobe! The pants are accompanied by tops, tees, or nightshirts to complete the set. You can also mix-and-match pyjama pants with your favourite camisole, tank top, or tee and call it a night. These versatile fits are tailored from 100% cotton fabric that is super ideal for when you want to binge-watch your favourite movies in bed. 

3. Chemises 

When we say that they’re simultaneously soft, sweet, and sensual, we mean it! Chemises add just the right touch of femininity to your nightwear drawer. Tailored from flowy satin or modal fabrics, these are easy to slip into and offer a breezy and relaxed fit. They make the perfect type of nightwear to sleep in or lounge around. Also, these fuss-free styles look amazingly flattering and compliment every body type!

4.Tops ‘n’ Shorts Sets

If you’re a tee-and-shorts kinda gal, then these sets can be the most suitable nightwear choice for you. These cosy and stylish sets are made from the comfiest of fabrics to offer a restful night’s sleep when you’re kicking back after a hard day’s work. You could also choose these cutely printed shorts and style them with your favourite vests, camisoles, or shirts to create new sleepwear looks every night!


This one is for bold and beautiful women who want to feel sensual, sexy, or just simply attractive. From lacy babydolls to uplifting chemises, you can pick from this range, especially for all those special moments.

6. Long Nightdresses

As winter comes a-knocking, these long, cosy nightgowns find their way out from the long-forgotten corners of your wardrobe. If you want to jazz up this familiar silhouette, we’ve got you various styles that are entirely comfortable, and snuggly.

7. Sleep Tops

You can choose from a plethora of styles, patterns, colours, and prints because they’re also every-season wear. Whether they’re moonlighting as lounge tops on lazy weeknights, or if you choose to pair them up with some funky pyjamas or shorts, you’ve got yourself the perfect recipe for a pyjama party!

8. Maternity Nightwear

Designed for maternity care, this mommy-friendly nightwear range offers the ultimate comfort and ease of movement. These accommodating and fuss-free outfits are explicitly designed to cater to nursing mothers, which is why maternity sleepwear goes that extra mile to help regulate body temperature and promote sound sleep. Even when you’re up, this range provides discreet and subtle access for breastfeeding and more.

9. Capri Sets

Lying in between the classic pyjamas and the trendy shorts are the modestly designed capris. These pants come in a three-quarter length and are fan favourites for a comfortable night’s sleep. Choose these sets because they come with a matching tee to complete the look and offer nothing but superior comfort. If you feel like sprucing them up, you could also pair your capris with your favourite sleep top, or with a short nightie for some extra layering during chilly nights.

10. Camisoles

The camisoles from Zivame are a comfy and stylish wardrobe staple for all women because they are a shorter version of the chemise that can be comfortably paired with shorts, pyjamas, or capris. They can also be worn as an undershirt for low-cut tops, or if you’re feeling confident enough, you can sport the camisoles with a jacket or shrug.
