How to Choose Maternity Pyjamas in the UK - Buying Guide

Look out for a few key factors while shopping for maternity nightwear. Whether you're a first time mother or you've experienced the new baby drill a few times before, comfy new PJ's are a surefire way to make midnight feeds that little bit less stressful. Here's our guide to choosing the best. 

Nightie or Pyjamas? One Allows Freedom, the Other Doubles as Loungewear and Keeps You Cosy

Nightie or Pyjamas? One Allows Freedom, the Other Doubles as Loungewear and Keeps You Cosy

Maternity nightwear could be a pair of cosy pyjamas or a loose-fitting nightie; both have benefits and some feature necklines especially designed for nursing at night, which we'll get into later. 


The key benefits of pyjamas are the fact they keep your legs covered, and can double as loungewear. Look for special features that support growing bumps or that can be adjusted after giving birth so you don't have to repurchase every few months! 


When it comes to nighties, they'll often feel less restrictive on growing bumps as there'll be no waistband to contend with. They can be more practical for new mums as they're super quick to throw on compared to PJ's, and won't dig in as much on your now-delicate stomach area. 

Consider Leg and Sleeve Lengths; Do You Overheat or Feel the Cold?

Consider Leg and Sleeve Lengths; Do You Overheat or Feel the Cold?

Think about how your body has been feeling during pregnancy or with your new baby, and how hot you tend to get at night for the season you're buying in. 


If you often feel very warm in bed or you're buying for summer, a shorter, knee-length nightdress is a great option. Consider one with straps or capped sleeves for added freedom and ventilation. 


For mamas who tend to get chillier at night times, a longer-length nightie or pyjama top-and-bottoms combo with longer sleeves may be best. 


Like a little space to breathe? Try PJ's with cropped trousers, which are ideal for between-season wear. 

Decide on Your Preferred Style for Comfortable Breastfeeding

Many maternity pyjama sets available online are specifically aimed at mums who want to comfortably breastfeed their little one at night. There are a few different options which will suit different mothers in different ways. Check out the options which best suit your body type and needs. 

Poppers Are Speedy to Open With Minimal Fuss

Poppers give your PJ's a cute aesthetic and they certainly save a lot of time. On hectic nights when you've been awoken unexpectedly or don't want to fuss with buttons, poppers are ideal as they can be opened in seconds but also comfortably closed to keep you warm. 


Nighties with poppers at the back as well as front are a great option for hospital visits, providing comfort and ease of examination. 

Maternity Nighties With Bra-Strap Style Openings Are Familiar But Fiddly

Maternity Nighties With Bra-Strap Style Openings Are Familiar But Fiddly

To keep extra cool – either at warmer times of year or if you tend to get heated on night-time feeds – why not consider a nightie with a bra-strap style clasp which can be unhooked to allow the cup to drop down


Though you may be familiar with this style in your maternity bras during the day, they could be a little fiddly for new mums and don't necessarily provide the smoothest possible transition at night time.

Buttons Look Smart But Take Longer to Unfasten

Another option for feeding your baby in the night is a set of pyjamas or a nightie with buttons down the front.


In comparison to poppers these are a little more time consuming, but look simple and sophisticated and can be worn as normal nightwear once pregnancy and breastfeeding are over. 

Nighties With Fastening-Free Openings Are Efficient and Discreet

A truly practical option is a nightie or pyjama top which has a hidden opening, disguised with folds so you can lift the fabric and breastfeed comfortably, even if you decide to wear it during the day, too!


This is great as it means no uncomfortable buttons underneath you as you sleep and no faffing with closures, although be mindful that some designs may not allow you to take out your whole breast. 

Consider the Benefits and Care of Different Fabrics Which Can Influence Comfort and Softness

Consider the Benefits and Care of Different Fabrics Which Can Influence Comfort and Softness

Think about the material your pyjamas are crafted from, as this will affect how you feel when wearing them and how easily they stretch around a growing bump. Cotton is beautifully soft, and when blended with other fibres gives a dreamy texture to your nightwear. It can be more costly but is breathable and easy to care for. 


Viscose is derived from wood and other natural products regenerated into cellulose fibres. It feels great against the skin whilst letting it breathe, and can have antimicrobial properties. 

Consider the Benefits and Care of Different Fabrics Which Can Influence Comfort and Softness

Cheaper options are polyester and polyamide, two fairly alike fabrics made with polymer fibres. Some wearers may be put off as they are synthetic materials, though polyester is very tough and resistant to wrinkles and colour fading, as well as being quick to dry, 


Polyamide (better known as nylon), has similar properties but does offer a little more stretch; keeping your changing body in perfect comfort.
