A Complete Guide to Cosy Loungewear

When you arrive home from a hard day at work or from a busy day chasing after the kids or grand-kids, you want to relax. The first thing you want to do is to strip off the day-clothes so that when you snuggle up on the sofa, you do so wearing comfy loungewear.

And now that icy winter nights have arrived, we are all looking for wonderfully warm nightwear that will guarantee we feel cocooned and cosy.

With all that in mind, we’ve found you the most stylish (and warmest) loungewear , PJs, onesies, nighties and dressing-gowns.


When it’s bed-time, there’s very little that spells a snugly sleep-time as perfectly as a comfy and gorgeous pair of PJs.

Right: Monsoon: Arwen brushed cotton PJs, grey/blue, £45 in sizes S, M, L, XL


Nothing feels quite as perfect as velour pants and matching top for a night in slumped on the sofa-watching our favourite movie, sipping a glass of wine and nibbling Maltesers…

Left: Debenhams: Black velour zip through loungewear set, £40 in sizes 8-20

Right: Damart: Velour pjs/loungewear, blue or pink, from £39, in sizes S, M, L, XL and 2XL


When ‘onesies’ first appeared back in 2012, we thought they were just a passing fad! Who knew that a onesie would turn out to be such a clever and practical piece for sleeping or lounging – a bit like a jumpsuit, for sleeping in!

Left: John Lewis & Partners: Fifi French pug cotton onesie, grey, £39 in sizes S, M and L

Right: M&S: Striped long sleeve onesie, grey mix, £28, sizes 6-22


We love a classic nightie to feel warm and deliciously feminine when we climb into bed. This V-neck midi-length one is so elegant, we could almost wear it to the office…

Right: M&S: Checked long sleeve nightshirt, £18 in sizes 6-24

Dressing Gowns

And when we have to stand in the bathroom to brush our teeth, or zoom to a chilly kitchen to make breakfast, we love a dressing gown to wrap round us to ward off chills. And if we find one that’s chic, too, well, it’s win-win.

Figleaves: Camelia soft touch long robe, grey marl, £65 in sizes S,M,L

M&S: Fleece floral print dressing gown with belt, £20 in sizes from 6-8 to 20-22

When sofa-surfing, we like a white-wine spritzer, Kettle chips and maybe a few Wine Gums or Maltesers. When you are watching TV or a movie from your sofa, what snack and drink do you like to have beside you?

So what do you think?
