These 14 Bamboo Pajamas Will Keep You Cool and Comfortable

Marcus Millan

Bamboo—it’s more than just a sturdy material for your outdoor chairs or the preferred snack of pandas. It’s also an incredibly versatile textile that boasts a unique set of attributes that set it apart from many other materials (both synthetic and natural) on the market. “Bamboo is one of the most comfortable fabrics out there. And not only is it extra soft to the touch, but it also helps regulate your body temperature,” explains Jarett Antoque, a textile expert and fashion director at Amazon Style. (He adds that it’s also sustainably grown, a boon for anyone looking to make more eco-friendly fashion choices.)

That makes it a top choice for a variety of different clothing, but pajamas in particular. “It’s a great, year-round fabric for PJs because it has cooling and warming properties, and is also naturally insulating,” Antoque says. And, of course, you can’t underestimate the fact that it’s buttery and super cozy, exactly the thing you want to slip on after a long day, no matter whether it’s to actually wear to bed or just to lounge around the house. The point is, it’s likely worth adding a pair of bamboo pajamas to your closet.

This set checks all of our ‘pajama must-have’ boxes…and then some. The fit is roomy yet still flattering, and the moisture-wicking fabric blend (a mix of bamboo viscose with a bit of spandex) sleeps way cooler than cotton. We also love the contrast piping against the various neutral colorways and patterns, and the fact that they’re available in both regular and tall lengths. Even Oprah is a fan of these PJs—could there be a better endorsement than that?

Ettitude Sateen Shortie


View On Ettitude

(And while it may look and feel like silk, it can easily be machine washed and dried.) There are several PJ pieces to choose from, but don’t miss these shorts. They’re roomy in the leg with a cute, curved hem, and also won’t cling to your skin like some polyester materials can. It’s also worth mentioning that the material is hypoallergenic, a boon for those with sensitive skin.

The cami and shorts in this set are so cute that you could perhaps get away with wearing them as separate pieces of real clothes. Still, they’re also delightfully comfy for bedtime; the shorts have a knit waistband that’s a great choice for those who may not love drawstrings. And the cami is ultra-flattering, too, thanks to princess seams and softly molded cups that offer the perfect amount of support, not restriction.

The material is silky and soft with just the right amount of stretch, and there are plenty of colors and sizes to choose from. Bonus points for the fact that it’s machine washable, too, always imperative for pajamas.

Bamboo is a very eco-friendly choice to begin with, but this brand takes it one step further. They use organically grown bamboo from China, grown without any fertilizers or pesticides. Boody is also a certified B-corp, meaning they have super high standards for both their social and environmental impact. They offer a variety of PJ separates to choose from, but these pants are a standout: silky, loose, breathable, and perfect for pairing with any top of your choosing.

Best Cooling

CoolRevolution Cooling V-Neck Sleep Shirt


View On

We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again—bamboo is great for hot sleepers thanks to its natural, thermo-regulating properties. Here, it’s combined with cotton and spandex for an extra-cooling blend that also wicks away moisture (no need to stress about night sweats). All of their pajama pieces are sold separately to help you get the perfect fit, but if you’re going to pick up just one item, make it this V-neck tee. It’s cut slightly longer in the back for extra coverage, and fitted in the top but roomy throughout the middle and bottom.

  • Price at time of publish: $48
  • Material: 66% bamboo rayon, 28% cotton, 6% spandex
  • Size Range: XS–XXXXL

Okay, so this may not technically fall into the category of pajamas, but in our opinion, a good robe is like the jelly to PJs peanut butter—an essential pairing. This one is extremely affordable, especially considering that it’s made of organic bamboo, and the moisture-wicking properties make it ideal for slipping on post-shower. Bonus points for the adjustable waist tie and pockets.

Final Verdict

There’s no denying that bamboo is a choice material to incorporate into your bedtime wardrobe. The Cozy Earth Long Sleeve Bamboo Pajama Set is our top pick overall, a long-sleeve top and pant set that’s buttery soft and with the perfect relaxed-yet-flattering fit. Prefer a nightgown? The GYS Women’s Bamboo Nightgown is a winning (and affordable) Amazon find.

What to Look For in Bamboo Pajamas


Many of the bamboo pajamas out there, including our top pick, the Cozy Earth Long Sleeve Bamboo Pajama Set, will combine bamboo with a touch of spandex. This is so that you get the softness and comfort of bamboo, but with the stretchiness of spandex to help get the perfect fit. If you want something entirely free of synthetic materials, consider the Ettitude Sateen Shortie, which is made from 100% bamboo.


Bamboo-derived tends to be the most cost-efficient for manufacturers, notes Antoque, which means it’s likely to be the most affordable for the consumer. That being said, the natural benefits of bamboo (moisture-wicking, thermoregulation, hypoallergenicity) are likely to be more apparent in bamboo viscose, which is made from the actual wood pulp, or straight-up bamboo.

Care Instructions

“Bamboo has a tendency to shrink,” cautions Antoque, so make sure to read the instructions carefully. Many pajamas can be machine-washed, though may need to be line-dried or machine-dried on a cool or gentle cycle. Whether you’re shopping for Christmas, birthdays, or another special occasion, check the instructions and adjust sizing accordingly before buying them as a gift for someone else.


Do bamboo pajamas last longer than others?

“Bamboo supposedly does last longer than cotton in particular, as you don’t have to wash as often and holds its shape through wear and tear better,” says Antoque. (Credit the less frequent washing to the fact that the material also has natural antimicrobial properties and is hypoallergenic.)

What do bamboo pajamas feel like?

It depends a little bit on the exact blend of materials used in any particular pair, as bamboo is often combined with others, but as a general rule of thumb, expect them to be extra soft, says Antoque.

Are bamboo pajamas comfortable?

In a word, yes—not to mention that you’re getting all of those other benefits, like thermo-regulating properties, that can help you feel even more comfortable while you snooze.
