For sweet dreams and champion-level streaming marathons all year long, you need some of the best plus-size pajamas around. They come in every type of buttery soft fabric and easygoing style you can imagine, so finding the right one for you will largely come down to the warmth level you seek. Obviously, that leaves a huge playing field of options and, just as obviously, you’ll probably want more than one pair depending on the season. Consider this your excuse to stock up.

Warm weather pajamas should be as light and breezy as possible. Shorts and camis with cropped-sleeve tops and tees are just the thing for keeping cool on humid nights — as are nightgowns because they’re an excuse to forgo pants entirely. Rayon and bamboo-based viscose options will feel buttery soft and pretty breathable, which is why they make up a large percentage of options here. That said, polyester knits will be durable and affordable, and they come in tons of different finishes from tie-dye to imitation silk, so they shouldn't be overlooked.

For chilly nights in front of the fireplace or under your favorite blanket, opt for a classic button-down pajama set or a pair of cozy leggings and a long-sleeved tee. Flannel is often considered the gold standard of cold-weather jammies. In thick cotton, it’s incredibly soft and durable. However, a good pair of fleece long johns — typically in sporty polyester because it is budget-friendly and wicking — are toasty basics that conveniently pull double duty as base layers.

Whatever the weather, these are some of the most-raved about plus-size pajamas on Amazon — and yes, you’ll want to live in them.


A Cute & Classic Pajama Shorts Set

With their timeless style and soft comfort, these short pajamas, in drapey viscose, are a set you’ll turn to often.

The shorts tie at the waist with a nice satin ribbon that’s a step up from plain knit drawstrings, and the hem has a sewn-in cuff for a well-finished look. Get it in one of the muted solids you'll never get tired of — or super-cute buffalo plaid. "I want to live in these," one fan raved. "I absolutely hate shopping for myself, especially online. Nothing ever fits or the quality is subpar but these pajamas are the best thing ever. Soft, comfy, fit great and very nice quality." You'll also love the brand's longer boyfriend pajamas for cooler days.
