When the temperature starts to max out at 20 degrees, it's time for me to start hibernating at home for the next six months. But instead of sporting my typical gym shorts and T-shirt, the threat of a super high electricity bill guarantees I'll invest in super warm women's pajamas.
For reference, the insulation in my old Brooklyn apartment is basically non-existent and my bed is cozied up right under the windows. So even though the snowfall may look magical, it also guarantees my room is barely above 60 degrees. And for all you southerners, yes I know that's essentially freezing.
Instead of shivering in my apartment, I try to dress in warm fabrics like fleece, which capture your body's natural heat and keep it close to your skin. Other popular winter fabrics, such as thermals or waffle knits, act similarly to turn your body heat into a personal space heater.
Another key feature in many winter pajama sets is rib-knit cuffs around your ankles and wrists to once again trap heat and keep out cold air flow. While not a necessity, they're definitely an added bonus in the fight to keep your body warm.
So whether you're trying to keep down utilities, or just really need a pair of cozy PJs to cuddle in for the next couple of months, here's a rundown of super warm women's pajamas you'll find on Amazon. And with two-day shipping, many of them might actually arrive before the next blizzard heads your way!
