Bridesmaid pajama sets are trending! We’ll show you where to get bridesmaid pajamas in the cutest styles. Check out these bridesmaid pjs, your new loungewear go-to! And while you’re here, subscribe!
What is the latest getting-ready craze for weddings? Bridesmaid pajamas! Ah, yes, bridesmaid pjs. Is there a comfier gift to give to your BFFs? Nope! And bridesmaid getting ready pajamas are all the rage!
P.S. There’s a giveaway inside this post! Don’t miss it!
You’ve probably seen photos of the bridal party getting ready before the wedding begins: hair, makeup, sipping on mimosas, the whole nine yards. While your photographer is capturing these fun just-before-the-ceremony festivities, it can be fun to wear matching bridesmaid pajamas as getting ready outfits.
But before you choose where to get bridesmaid pajamas, we have good news and bad news.
The bad news is: not all bridesmaid pajama sets are created equal.
In the past few years, as this trend has taken off, we have seen inexpensive bridesmaid pajamas that are poorly-made with economical materials that itch, shrink, are too short, tight, or way too large. Boxy even! Those budget fabrics are not built to last and bridesmaids will not be able to wear them much longer than the wedding day itself.
Another thing to look out for: “one-size fits all”. You will find this most often with robes, but that is due to the way a robe fits. Bridesmaid robes and pajamas are two different outfits: robes are OK with one size, while you really need to choose pj sets with specific sizing and/or order bridesmaid pajamas plus size for a comfier fit in larger sizes.
One-size-fits-all? Ha! We’re all different in body type and shape, so choose pajama sets for bridesmaids that have specific size options.
The good news is: we created this list of the best bridesmaid pajamas to help you navigate the wacky world of silk, satin, flannel, lace, and more to bring quality bridesmaid sleepwear that will last — and look phenomenal. :)
And for a bridesmaid gift, personalized pajamas are always well-received!
MORE GOOD NEWS
Want even more good news? Just because we’re calling these the best bridesmaid pajama sets, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are crazy expensive, either. There is a huge difference between getting bridesmaid pajamas cheap and getting them… cheap. We’ll show you the difference!
We want the pajamas sets you give as gifts to bridesmaids to last longer than one day, one wash, one season… we want them to be comfy pajamas for bridesmaids to wear for a long time to come.
Bridesmaid Pajama Sets
First, what makes a quality sleepwear set? When browsing in-store, it’s easy to see the quality by feeling the material with your hands.
If it is soft and silky, it is probably a nice quality sleepwear set. On a recent Target run, I saw these bridesmaid pajama sets and I was pleasantly surprised at how cozy they felt. Who knew you could order bridesmaid pajamas from Tar-jay?
That is one benefit of shopping in-store: you can see the quality for yourself.
If you’re getting them online, you’ll want to pay attention to the reviews from past customers. That is such a wonderful part of online shopping: reviews! Read reviews from real customers and see what they have to say.
• How did the bridesmaid pajama sets look upon arrival?
• Did they fit true to size? Too big? Too small?
• Was there a weird smell?
I know, this sounds funny, but you’d be surprised how often this happens.
Do your beloved comfy bridesmaid pajamas have a strange, chemical smell? Do they arrive as though they were already worn? Yuck! Avoid these pitfuls by reading reviews, if possible.
If there are no customer reviews on the sleepwear sets, cross your fingers! And be sure to leave a review afterward to help a future potential customer, whether good or bad. Always be honest in reviews.
• Was there an error in the personalization?
This is especially important if you’re getting embroidered bridesmaid pajamas. Mistakes happen, so you’re not looking for whether an error was made: what is the most important thing to look out for is, how quickly did the seller fix the situation?
• How fast was shipping?
With the USPS experiencing slower than usual shipping times, don’t be surprised if some of the reviews mention longer shipping times. That is not necessarily the fault of the seller. Instead, look for reviews like if someone did order bridesmaid pajamas and the package never arrived. Or shipping was ridiculously long and communication was not available.
• Ask questions
In addition to buying handmade and supporting small business, bridesmaid pajamas Etsy has to offer comes with an added bonus: direct messaging.
Etsy is a great community and messaging is very easy to do, whether you need to ask the seller a question about your order, about a particular product, or even message a past reviewer for more information on their order.
For instance, if Stephanie decided to buy bridesmaid pajamas from Company A, and left a review about the way they fit, you could send a message to her directly and ask, “Were the pajamas too large? Do they run small?”
I can’t guarantee she’ll provide you with more details, but it can’t hurt, especially if you have very specific questions.
I have done this in the past for a few gifts for the holidays and it was very helpful. People in the Etsy community tend to be pretty friendly and happy to help!
• Bridesmaid getting ready pajamas in photos
It is also helpful to see photos from Real Weddings featuring the bridesmaid getting ready pajamas in action! In this way, you can gauge how well the bridal party pjs will fit and how they will look in your photos.
Before you buy bridesmaid pajamas, let’s discuss why pjs are gaining a ton of traction versus bridal party robes.
Bridesmaid PJs vs. Robes
When we asked brides who wanted an alternative to bridesmaid robes, their biggest reasons why / concerns were stated as the following:
• robes have been used frequently in weddings, so some brides want a fun alternative
• a robe is sometimes not the most secure, making some bridesmaids feel awkward during a photo session
• some people prefer to wear bridesmaid pajamas vs. robes at home, so they’ll be worn more often
• there is substantially more coverage and warmth with long sleeve or long pant bridesmaid pjs as fall bridesmaid gifts (or winter!)
• the choice between satin or silky, modal jersey or floral patterns, many colors and sizes when choosing bridesmaid pjs
• the ability to choose short sleeve and short pajama sets (aka bridesmaid shortie sets) for warm spring weddings or hot summer months
It makes sense! Pajamas are versatile, available in many colors, and have a wider range of sizes. As we mentioned, one-size-fits-all for a robe doesn’t necessarily mean one-size-fits-all for everyone.
But pajamas? You can order them in proper sizes so bridesmaids feel pulled-together, confident, and ready to rock on with champagne in hand! (Aren’t these flutes perfect for toasting? By PrettyLittleThingATX.)

Bridesmaid pajamas are a cute and comfy gift for your bridesmaids, as you can even choose to get them personalized with her monogram. Embroidered bridesmaid pajamas are a very popular gift right now and we’ll be showing you several examples in our list of the best bridesmaid pajama sets below.
