The 10 Best women’s nightwear

Whether Christmas will be spent in your own home or someone else’s make sure you’re well dressed when Santa pops in

1. Shorts

£25, Cos, cosstores.com

If you’re the type that overheats in bed, a pair of cool cotton shorts are just the thing. Modelled after men’s boxers, the fly front on this cute gingham pair is thankfully a fake.

2. Nightshirt

£45, Bodas, bodas.co.uk

Available in crisp white, charcoal or this pretty shell pink, this slightly mannish nightshirt is a loose and unrestrictive option for those who toss and turn all night.

3. Nightdress

£45, Rosie for Autograph,  marksandspencer.com

Channelling Hollywood glamour as this full-length pure silk and lace gown does, is sure to result in big sales.

4. Robe

£455, Margaret Howell,  margarethowell.co.uk

While there are plenty of far cheaper options available, this 100 per cent wool plaid dressing gown will last a lifetime.

5. Pyjama bottoms

£32, Calvin Klein, asos.com

Bright as a button, a pair of soft cotton Calvins is a bedtime classic not only for the comfort factor they provide, but also the cheery demeanour a splash of colour brings.

6. Onesie

£28, Iris & Edie, Debenhams

Whether or not a onesie is acceptable outdoors is best left to your own conscience, but nobody would begrudge this level of cosiness in the comfort of your own home.

7. Pyjamas

£35, John Lewis, johnlewis.com

What could be more cheering than changing in to these pyjamas after a long day of turkey eating and board-game playing? Just try and hold off until your guests have gone.

8. Bed socks

£32, The White Company,  thewhitecompany.com

Earn brownie points from your partner by warming your icy feet with these supersoft cashmere socks rather than on their legs.

9. Eye mask

£15, Oliver Bonas,  oliverbonas.com

Wearing an eye mask in bed may seem decadent, but if your curtains let in light this will help to ensure lie-ins aren’t rudely interrupted.

10. Slippers

£20, Dickins & Jones, houseoffraser.co.uk

A ballet-slipper style slipper is great for moving around the house, even if you’re not as nimble on your feet as a member of the Ballet Russes.
