Don't hesitate to ditch the sleep shorts and breezy sheets for something much cozier. If you're on the hunt for a flannel pajama set that won't let you overheat, we've got you covered. Below are the best flannel pajamas (including holiday pajamas!) to bundle up for a dreamy night's sleep without a night sweat in sight.
The best flannel pajamas for a good night's sleep
Flannel pajamas in plaid and checks
This classic two-piece buffalo plaid set from Old Navy features a matching button-up shirt and pants snuggly enough for staying warm on even the coldest nights. Available in tall, regular, and petite sizes in a handful of colors, including red, green, and blue plaid.
For just $25, score one of Amazon’s top-rated flannel pajama sets, made by PajamaMania. The mid-weight flannel features a soft-brushed feel that’s cozy—never stiff or scratchy. Choose from standard prints like plaid, or switch things up with stars, polka dots, and leopard print.
People keep saying there’s a Von Dutch revival right now, but they’ve got it all wrong. In actuality, it’s a Von Trapp revival—as in The Sound of Music—complete with Salzburg-style sleepwear that’s as cozy as it gets. It’s 100% cotton, super-soft, and adorned with the cutest piping. Now that’s something to sing about.
Few brands do flannel as well as L.L. Bean. These ultra-soft pajamas are cozy and durable, designed to last from season to season. Between the relaxed cut, clean lines, and snuggly fabric, they’re a premium choice for flannel PJs. Available in all the classic plaids in various colors.
Want to stock up on holiday PJs before the holiday rush? Check out these flannel beauties on Amazon. Each set comes with a toasty top and bottom and fuzzy socks to complete your cozy look. As for prints, there’s everything from gingerbread men to geometrics.
If you hate the way bulky pajamas feel, check these out. They’re super light and airy, loose in all the right places but still guaranteed to keep you warm. Whether you’re drifting off to sleep or hanging around the house, these PJs are a perfect fit. Available in red, orange, purple, and blue plaid.
Lands’ End sells all of its flannel pajamas as separates, allowing you to mix and match with sizes and prints, all at an affordable price. No matter what you go with, all feature the same snuggly softness, relaxed fit, and stylish piping for continuity.
Here’s another spin on the classic flannel shirt-and-pant combo. This set swaps the pants for flannel shorts and opts for a plain cotton tee opposed to a button-up. At just $22, it’s the perfect gift for hot sleepers (or for yourself).
Flannel pajamas, but make them introverted. Need to keep your head warm—or just hide from the world to recharge? Slip into this one-piece, flip up that hood, and feel roasty-toasty whether you’re lounging or heading straight to the blissful solitude of your bed. FYI, this one is a cotton-poly blend, which means less shrinkage but less fluffy softness, too.
Flannel pajamas in prints and patterns
Made of 100 percent cotton flannel, these pajamas have more than 3,000 5-star reviews on Amazon. Since they’re cotton, they won’t get stuffy, ensuring you stay cool and comfortable while you sleep. Available in 15 different colors and patterns, so you can find what suits you best.
These Charter Club flannel pajamas are another affordable, quality option. The cotton material is lightweight and airy but still ensures warmth when the temps drop, so no need to worry about sweating them out. Available in traditional plaid, as well as florals and stripes.
Aw, look at those little trees! They read “holiday cheer” without being ultra-literal, which means you won’t feel silly wearing these in January and February (and, let’s be real, March). Hanna Andersson is famous for making high-quality kids’ PJs, and their adult offerings are just as soft and well-made. If flannel isn’t your thing for whatever reason, the same print is available in thinner cotton long johns and in matching sizes for the whole family.
Your grandfather used to wear pajamas like these, right? There’s a reason this cut has stayed in style for decades—it’s comfortable but also more considered than your holey “Campus Fun Run 2013!” tee and sweatpants. Wear it, stay warm, look cute, think of how much you love your Opa. It’s a veritable recipe for sweet dreams.
Made in Germany, this double-brushed cotton flannel set is as soft as it gets—and it’s organic, which means no pesticide residue goes on your skin or into soil. If this ivory and gold woodblock print isn’t the right one for you, no worries—there are four other options, all of which offer the same thoughtful details such as a pocket and venting.
Flannel pajamas in solids and stripes
Maybe plaid isn’t your thing. Perhaps instead, you’re into a less rustic, more understated vibe—and if so, these these classic camel flannels are it. Very “Katharine Hepburn goes to Miraval Berkshires,” and certainly worth the splurge if you’re going to choose just one perfect pair of PJs to last forever.
Because these pajamas are made of viscose flannel, they’re lighter than cotton flannel—which makes them ideal for warm sleepers. The subdued stripe is more sophisticated than most, and small details like a contrast-finish hem make this set a fashionable choice. It’s available in sizes XXS to 3XL, too.
Simple, classic, warm. Just the perfect thing to wear while you’re sipping rooibos and paging through the latest issue of The Gentlewoman.
