Sultry plus-size sleepwear
Short gowns: Charmeuse chemises
Spice up your nights in plus-size sleepwear that’s meant to be seen. Ditch the oversized tee for gossamer gowns, flatteringly flirty negligees and sweetly seductive pajamas that feel just as good as they look. — Shannon McCarthy

The chemise is a simple and supremely comfortable silhouette reminiscent of a slip, usually sporting spaghetti straps – choose adjustable ones for an easy, custom fit – a scoop neckline and a gently flaring hem. Go silky with a shiny charmeuse finish for maximum allure.
Short gowns: Babydoll nightgowns

Babydoll gowns are typically tailored with a fitted bodice, empire waist and a skirt that flows over curves, so it’s an excellent and really complimentary sleepwear choice for plus-size figures. Go breezy with hems ranging from just above the knee to mid-thigh: These short gowns are the perfect sultry touch after sundown.
Short gowns: Allover lace chemises

Lace will always steer you toward sexy, so an allover lace chemise is bound to make you feel fabulously femme. Not all of these über-flirty short sleepwear gowns are scandalously see-through; many feature a mesh lining for a little opacity, if that’s what you’re in the mood for.
Short gowns: Modal sleep shirts

Modal rayon and blended modal cotton are renowned for their supersoft feel and lightweight drape, plus they resist pilling and hold their color through many washes. This makes them ideal and wonderfully flattering materials for sensually draping sleep shirts, some of the most effortless garments known to womankind.
Long gowns: Satin nightgowns

Depending on their fabrication and cut, long gowns can reveal almost as much as they conceal. Bodice shapes and fabrication are key: Balance a relatively modest lower half with a plunging or scoop neckline, make glowing satin your fabric choice, and you’ll master figure flattery and sure seduction in one go.
Long gowns: Sleep maxis

A modern take on the plus-size nightgown, sleep maxis are trendy, cute and versatile: You can also use many of them as daytime loungewear. Most are cut exactly like the summer staple, with spaghetti straps, empire waists and cool graphic prints or colorblocking, but are woven from lighter, more sleep-worthy, fabrics.
Long gowns: Sheer panel nightgowns

Sheer or semi-sheer panels are always an option when you’d like to get your flirt on, as they’re the very definition of the word. You’ll tease the maximum amount of fun from a long gown when peek-a-boo panels are made of airy chiffon, bewitching lace or curve-hugging mesh.
Long gowns: Side-slit gowns

Like to flash a little leg? Plenty of plus-size nightgowns feature side slits for the perfect amount of skin-baring beauty. They range from modest (tank-style bodices and a side open to the knee) to majorly sexy (stretch lace gowns that bare both legs up to the thigh), and all add a kick to your sleepwear routine.
Sets and robes: Silk pajamas

Full coverage doesn’t have to be dowdy. Two words: silk pajamas. There’s no more sensually sophisticated sleepwear, and if you choose a vixenish shade like deep crimson or black in softly glowing charmeuse, you’ll ace the sultry finals. These p.j.’s are as easy on the bod as they are on the eyes.
Sets and robes: Tap pant sets

Turn up the heat on even the warmest summer night in this sleepwear style. Tap pants are shorts, usually silkier than everyday sleep shorts, with hems that flare out in retro style. Tops are typically just as vintage vixen, with cami, babydoll and other easy-wearing silhouettes that smooth over your figure.
