Materials to look out for
Winter nightwear, such as long sleeve nightshirts and knit nighties, needs to keep you warm and comfy through cold nights. The best material for cold-weather nighties is polyester which is affordable and traps heat against the body to keep you snug all night. Summer nightwear, such as chemises and nighties, needs to keep you cool and comfortable in the heat. Cotton is a natural material that is soft but breathable and feels cool and lightweight against the skin. Viscose is a synthetic material that is also lightweight, breathable and super soft.
Keep comfortable and cool in the warmer months
When it’s time to pack the long sleeve nighties away, Sussan have women’s nighties to stay cool and refreshed all summer long. Our women’s nighties are soft and lightweight with short nighties falling just above the knee for the perfect length. Lounge about in short sleeve nighties made from viscose and elastane with a comfy, oversized fit or settle in for the night in luxe Australian Cotton nighties that breathe and feel soft against the skin. Henley nighties are similar to the long sleeve top but knee-length with a half button placket and short sleeve. With a relaxed silhouette and simple style, slip them under dressing gowns on cold mornings or add a pair of matching slippers for the ultimate sleepwear ensemble for summer.

What is the best material for a short sleeve nightie?
Short sleeve nighties keep us cool in the summer when the Australian heat can make sleeping soundly through the night harder.
