Pajamas are a type of women's sleepwear typically consists of a loose-fitting shirt-and-pant sleepwear set that is worn for sleep and lounge. The pajama pant often features an elastic and/or a drawstring waist, so you can adjust the fit to your comfort. The pajama top may feature pull-over styling or a full button closure, and it may have short sleeves or long sleeves. Pajama separates are sold separately and together as sets. Some women believe pajamas are more comfortable than a nightgown, which has a skirt that can get twisted during sleep. The word pajama is derived from the Persian word payjama meaning “leg garment.” In India, the word originally referred to loose pants tied around the waist, worn by women and men. By the 17th century, pajamas were introduced in England as sleeping attire for men. Pajamas sleepwear eventually became popular for both women and men due to their practicality, convenience and comfort.
