When you think about how to improve your shut-eye quality, you might consider the temperature of your room, the pre-bedtime minutes you spend with your electronics, and even the essential oils that relax you. Pajamas, however, are not usually part of the equation. Sure, we all have our personal preference (perhaps a bralette and an oversize T-shirt, a pair of luxe silk pajamas, or, hey, even au naturel), but does what you wear to bed really influence the caliber of your sleep? Apparently, yes: One loungewear company is innovating the bed-tech game by using a fabric that the FDA has regulated it as a sleep-enhancing medical device in its new line of pajamas.

Restore is a just-released collection that Ashley Merrill, founder and CEO of luxury sleepwear company Lunya, told me is made from a signature blend of the brand’s pima cotton fibers and Celliant, a fabric technology that is so conducive to shut-eye, the FDA gave it a seal of approval.

The fabric technology absorbs body heat and converts it into a form of infrared energy that is then reflected back into the skin and tissues to help rebuild and recharge the human body while you sleep, a Lunya press release notes.

In recent years, fabric technology has become increasingly prevalent in the activewear industry, as brands produce fabrics with special sweat-wicking powers or with soft compression for ultimate flexibility. According to a press release from Lunya, the beauty of the Celliant blend is this: It absorbs body heat and converts it into a form of infrared energy that is then reflected back into the skin and tissues to help rebuild and recharge the human body while you sleep. Ultimately, the pajamas should “increase your energy, endurance, stamina, and performance and even help you recover faster from those tough workouts,” Merrill said.

The initial launch of the Restore collection, includes a maxi dress, a long-sleeve shirt, a muscle tee, and shorts in two colors. The pieces ranges from $62 for the muscle tee to $168 for the maxi dress, and everything can be machine-washed with the rest of your wardrobe. The brand plans to introduce new products and colors in April.

By creating pajamas using a special blend of the FDA-regulated fabric, Merrill said Lunya is taking its “goal to reinvent sleepwear” and its belief that “good sleep is the foundation of wellness” to way dreamier heights.

These are the best tech products to help you sleep, and weighted blankets can make all the difference in getting an anxiety-free night of shut-eye.
