Is it time to replace your pyjamas with sexier sleepwear? There is an assortment of sexy lingerie in the market – teddies, corsets, lacy negligee, chemises, and matching camisole and panty sets. Which is best for you?
If you want to get a good night’s sleep and look attractive at the same time, your best bet is a classic silk nightdress. Whatever your physique, a nightdress will show off your curves in the right places. They come in a variety of colours – there should be one that works well with your skin colour. Besides, a good-quality nightdress is a worthwhile investment that will last for many years.
Are you still not convinced? Here are three reasons why you should buy a silky nightdress.
It will improve your self-image
Psychology professors Adam Hajo and Adam D. Glinsky have documented their findings on “enclothed cognition.” Their study concludes that the clothes you wear affect your overall confidence. Two factors – the clothes’ symbolic meaning and the experience of wearing them – change people’s behaviour.
Another psychology professor Karen J. Pine explains that without being aware of it, one adopts the characteristics associated with the clothes they wear. That is why if you dress up for special occasions, you tend to walk and carry yourselves better.
Similarly, a silk nightdress exudes both sexiness and comfort. Once you wear one, you will feel more confident and attractive.
Wearing one will please your husband
Women have always instinctively known that men are impressed by beautiful women. Therefore, to attract men, women wear clothes that emphasise her feminine features.
Moreover, men like variety in their women’s clothing. In one survey, men admitted to the following preferences for their women’s nightwear:
- Their oversized t-shirt
- Frilly, cute camisole
- Sexy baby doll
- Sweat wear
- Short shorts with a camisole
- Soft pyjamas
- Close-fitting tank top
- Button-down pyjamas
- Silk nightdress
A silky nightdress will exude a “grown-up” feeling. Most men are attracted to women with sophisticated and elegant taste in clothes – and that includes nightwear.
Your health and beauty will improve
For your physical benefit, wearing a silk nightdress will improve your health and appearance in the following ways:
Comfortable sleep. Doctors recommend eight hours of sleep to minimise the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Moreover, a refreshing good night’s sleep will make you energetic, alert, and with improved memory. A nightdress allows your skin to breathe while you sleep. During summer, silk wicks away moisture from the sweat. In winter, silk will keep you warm by retaining body heat. Secondly, silk’s smoothness means that there is almost no friction to the body. Its texture follows the contours of the body. Lastly, a silk nightdress is hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites and mould – the perfect choice for people suffering from asthma and dust allergies.
- Delays skin wrinkles. The amino acids of silk delay the onset of wrinkles by maintaining the lipid surface of the skin and promoting blood circulation. Its softness promotes calmness, another boon to skin health. If you wear facial creams while sleeping, it is good to know that silk will not absorb moisture. Therefore, you get the full benefits of your skin treatment.
- Protects from ultraviolet radiation. Silk contains tryptophan and tyrosine, which are elements that effectively reflect radiation. Wearing silk will protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
- Protects you from fire. Silk is resistant to flame. Therefore, wearing a silk nightdress protects you from the hazards of fire.
With all these benefits, buying a silk nightdress is not just a treat for you. Wearing one could lead to better intimacy in your marriage.
