You don’t have to sweat for a good night’s sleep.
I may be in my thirties, but I’m convinced I suffer from early on-set menopause at night. Seriously. I’ve been known to sleep with the windows wide open in the dead of winter and with the fan on at night, and I’m still a total sweat factory. When summer rolls around, I toss and turn, shed layers, and search for the ‘cool spots’ in the sheets—I just can’t get comfortable. And waking up in a pool of your own sweat is not a cute look.
If you are like me and suffer from night sweats or menopausal hot flashes, choosing pajamas made of natural fibers like cotton and bamboo can be a huge game changer. Not only do they help you wick moisture, but they’re quick drying and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night.
In preparation for these warmer months, we’ve rounded up the best cooling pajamas, according to fellow reviewers who run hot.
Sleepy Time Women's Bamboo Pajamas
Made of a moisture-wicking bamboo fabric, this soft strappy tank and short set will keep you dry and comfortable—even through night sweats. Customers do note that the sizes tend to run a bit small (so if you’re between sizes, go up), but say this set is so comfortable they don’t even care.
“I have hot flashes at night and these pajamas have been a life saver. They really keep me much cooler,” said one reviewer.
Ekouaer Pajama Set
Whether you live in a warm climate or just tend to overheat at night, this pajama set has a silk-like feel and will keep you refreshingly cool all night long. In fact, it’s the best-selling women’s pajama set on Amazon right now, so you know it’s got to be good—and there are 31 different colors and patterns to choose from, too.
“Absorbs cool air and almost feels like wearing refrigerated PJ's,” wrote a shopper. “I know this sounds silly but both me and my husband were amazed! If you live in hot areas which we do, you will love these.”
TexereSilk Women’s Button-Up Long Sleeve Pajamas
A blend of bamboo viscose and cotton, these long-sleeve pajamas help to regulate your temperature at night, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. Bonus: They’re naturally hypoallergenic and great for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
“These are so soft, comfortable and perfect for someone who gets hot flashes,” shared a customer.

Hotouch Women’s Pajama Set
This nautical striped t-shirt and short combination is cute enough to wear for a movie night with friends, and also lightweight and comfortable enough to sleep through the night without having to shed a layer.

Joyaria Women’s Soft Bamboo Pajama Set
These sweat-wicking, cool-to-the-touch matching PJ sets will keep you from tossing and turning with night sweats. Plus, they come in a variety of classic solids and adorable patterns, like leopard and palm print.

Mae Women’s Sleepwear Sleeveless Split-Back Top and Short Pajama Set
The tulip back on the top offers natural ventilation and added breathability while you sleep, and the shorts leave legs exposed at night so you don’t get too hot.
“This is a nice, cool, and comfortable pajama set. The material is thin so it lets you breath, especially when it is hot,” wrote a reviewer.
