Is it healthier to sleep in pyjamas or in the nude? – Our (mostly) unbiased opinion!

Is it healthier to sleep in pyjamas or in the nude? Our mostly unbiased opinion!

There’s nothing quite as personal as sleeping. Everyone has their own unique quirks, from bed-time rituals to sleeping positions – and what we wear to bed. Some love a good pair of comfy pyjamas while others swear by going au naturel for more freedom. So, how do they fare against each other, and which one helps you get the best night’s sleep? We offer our (mostly) unbiased opinion on whether it’s healthier to sleep in pyjamas or in the nude!


In the tropical regions, nights can get warm and balmy during the summer. Sleeping in the nude helps your body remain cool and not be overheated during the night. After all, lower temperatures are more conducive for better sleep! Sleeping in the nude can also make you feel free without any constriction. On the other hand, sleeping in the nude can leave you exposed to the changing elements, and you might end up being too cold instead, disrupting your sleep and even leading you to fall sick.

If you’re the type to keep cool and be free while asleep but don’t want to get too cold, sleeping in temperature-regulating fabric like modal and bamboo can help to strike that balance.  

Infection & Hygiene

Tropical days and nights can get very hot and humid and keeping ourselves clean and dry can be a Herculean task. Sleeping in the nude can help to reduce the risk of infection in our sensitive areas by “airing” them and keeping them dry.

However, sleeping without clothes leaves completely exposed to germs and bacteria that live on your bed linen and accessories. Ensure that you have high quality anti-bacterial bed linen and regularly wash your sheets to reduce the risk. If you have pets, you might want to stop them from climbing into bed with you or restrict them from stepping on your bed when you’re not on it to keep it clean.

Wearing pyjamas made of breathable material like modal or cotton provide a safe barrier between your sensitive organs and bacteria. However, you must also make sure that your body is sufficiently dry throughout the night and that the pyjamas are sufficiently loose and relaxed for enough air flow.


Freedom from clothes, freedom from inhibitions. Sleeping in the nude gives you skin-on-skin contact with your partner and can help you feel more open to love and intimacy with them. It’s even touted as one of the key secrets to a happy relationship!

Make sure you have a lock on your door if you have children, other family members, or a very demanding pet living in the same house – we don’t want any accidents!

If you’re still not ready to be completely naked in bed – wearing a cute pair of pyjamas or some sexy lingerie can help set the mood for love and intimacy how you need it.

In conclusion, as a sleepwear brand, we may very well be biased in saying that sleeping in pyjamas is the best and healthiest choice for you, but there is no “correct” way to sleep. It’s all a matter of preference, and at the end of the day, you should do what you need to for a good night’s sleep.

What is Revenge Bedtime Procrastination and How Does It Affect You?

Girl in bed using her phone in the dark - Revenge Bedtime Procrastination can have long-lasting effects on both your physical and mental health.

Ever noticed yourself fighting sleep to remain on your phone or TV because you didn’t want the day to end, or for the next day to “arrive”? We finally have a name for it: revenge bedtime procrastination.

What is Revenge Bedtime Procrastination?

Revenge bedtime procrastination is almost self-explanatory – it’s a form of sleep procrastination, usually by adults who delay their bedtime or falling asleep, just so they can “enjoy” their downtime for longer. This act of defiance has been defined as a way for people to “take back control” over their freedom after their daily responsibilities at work in the daytime, which they might not have control over.

This phenomenon is usually caused by long working hours and work-related stress, both worsened by the pandemic, which has seen lines between work and personal time blurred due to majority of us working from home.

It might not seem very serious when you spend an additional hour here and there scrolling on your phone, or watching that extra episode of your favourite show, but when it becomes a habit, it can have long-lasting effects on both your physical and mental health.

How Does Revenge Bedtime Procrastination Affect You?

The point of downtime is for you to unwind from work and recharge for you to be ready for the next day. Sacrificing sleep for leisure is counterproductive, as you end up not feeling refreshed the next day, the very thing that your me-time and sleep is supposed to do for you. This starts off a vicious cycle that gets harder and harder to break.

Poor sleep habits don’t just leave you feeling sluggish the next day – the longer they aren’t corrected, the more harmful their affects are on your overall well-being. Cognitive decline, depression, anxiety, cardiovascular issues are just some ways that your physical and mental health will be affected in the long run.

How to avoid Revenge Bedtime Procrastination?

All is not doom and gloom though! Fixing your revenge bedtime procrastination just needs some effort, time and a whole lot of patience with yourself.

Set appropriate boundaries between your working hours and leisure time. This might be the most difficult thing to do but it is also the most crucial step to take towards improving your quality of life in general.

Setting a cut-off time for work will help you make sure that you are productive at work and still get enough sleep at the end of the day, while enjoying your leisure time to your heart’s content. Check out our tips on how you can design your home office for efficient and healthy work habits.

Another way is to plan your day such that you take some short breaks in between, where possible. This will help you feel less tired at the end of the day, and help you avoid feeling like you need to get a certain amount of me-time before you can officially call it a day.

If you can’t afford to take breaks during the weekday, you can also make the most out of your weekends. Plan some fun activities that takes your mind off work and other responsibilities such that both your body and mind get a well-deserved break.

Establishing a night-time ritual with a set a bed-time is another great way to ensure that you don’t succumb to revenge bedtime procrastination. This will allow your mind to wind down gradually and signal to your body that it’s time for sleep, allowing you to fall asleep faster and deeper.

If you’re still struggling, it’s best for you consult a sleep expert or doctor to seek a professional opinion on your overall health and get advice on how and where you need to make adjustments in your lifestyle before it’s too late.
