Why Smart Women invest in Sleepwear.

A third of our lives are spent in bed. It’s where we sleep, read, spend time with our partners and yet we rarely stop to think about what to wear in bed. Some of us might try uncomfortable pyjamas, or sexy slips, but many of us opt for baggy tracksuit pants that probably aren’t even ours. We therefore spend over a third of our lives having not even dressed ourselves!


In our daywear we’re confronted with unlimited clothing options that give us the power to communicate who we are. We are willing to spend so much money on clothes for outerwear but shy away from investing in clothes for ourselves.  What could be more important than feeling your best when you are recharging at home or hanging out with those that you love most?

At Papinelle, we promote enhancing your downtime with comfortable, effortless sleepwear that is carefully designed so you can feel your best. Every pair of pyjamas and every nightie or robe is designed to both make you feel beautiful while keeping you comfortable.

We use only carefully selected fabrics, like Pima Cotton, Pure Silk, Modal, and sustainably sourced Viscose. Nothing is quite as luxurious, comfortable and stylish as a pair of our classic pure silk pyjamas. Similarly, slipping into one of our modal nighties after a day’s work will instantly transform you to a place of comfort and relaxation.

Sleep helps our immune systems, balances our appetites, regulates our hormones and a good night’s sleep directly affects our overall quality of life. When we sleep well, we wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle our days. At Papinelle it is our mission to make sleeping well a top priority and the first step is comfortable sleepwear.

It’s called “beauty sleep” for a reason.

“Beauty sleep” is one of the more literal terms. Widely known as a cutesy marketing plot, beauty sleep is very much a real thing, and is very much needed.

Research has proven that attaining the minimum eight hours of shut eye each night is beneficial in keeping us looking young and fresh in both the short and long term.


During hours of pure rest, the body, and more specifically, the skin, has a magnificent ability to repair itself. Ever noticed the more you sleep, the plumper your cheeks appear, the wider and bright your eyes look, and the smoother your skin feels? This is because the body has hydrated the skin and its surroundings, and has began to repair any damages big or small. Ensuring hydrated skin night after night is essential for long-term glows, and natural anti-aging. It’s important to note that the body doesn’t have the capabilities to do these things during the day as it has numerous other distractions and responsibilities that it’s attention becomes focused on.

So, how can we ensure that we get enough pure hours of beauty sleep? We have put together a few easy, yet highly effective tips.

  1. Ensure a regular bedtime.

Your body craves consistency and some form of regularity. Ensuring a somewhat regular bedtime each night will help you fall asleep with increased ease. It will also help you prep your pre-bed rituals, which are essential for ensuring a good night’s sleep. Pre-bed rituals can be as simple as listening to calming music. Music is often termed as medicine, helping with calming heart rate, and brain activity.

  1. Take a long hot bath

We almost all crave a warm and cosy bath. The relaxing sensation of a hot bath comes from its ability to aid you in reaching a temperature prefect for rest.

Increase a baths capacity to help you relax with calming bath salts, oils, and other herbal and natural enthused products. We have just released a brand new range of bathing products which aim to calm and relax.

  1. Reduce caffeine

Caffeine is widely known to effect natural sleep patterns. Caffeine wakes up many sensations, making us increasingly alert. Having anything caffeine infused is a big no-no before bed. Remember is takes up to 20 minutes for the effects of caffeine to kick in, so don’t be impatient when waiting for the effects to kick in during the day.

  1. Create your own personalized sanctuary.

Creating a personalized place of harmony and peacefulness is essential in minimizing stress levels, and increasing relaxation. What you choose to include or exclude in this space is completely up to you, but there are a few essentials to consider. Make sure to minimize light, noise, and any discomforts (this could be related to your bed, pillow, PJs, etc.)

  1. Ensure the right temperature.

Studies have shown that the body craves a specific temperature range to ensure ease. Your bedroom should be within the realm of 18-14 degrees each night. Furthermore, you need to make sure that you have the correct pyjama for the weather. Your material choice is absolutely essential in different seasons. For summer we encourage something light such as a cotton silk blend, and for winter something a little warmer such as brushed cotton. Be smart with how you regulate your temperature at night.

Be smart with your sleep patterns. Make sure you are listening to your body, and focusing on what it truly needs to ensure that natural glow.
