SLEEPWEAR FOR HOT SUMMER NIGHTS.

What is your most comfortable kind of sleepwear for those hot summer nights? For me it must be the minimum amount of clothing if I am to have a restful sleep. Right now we are experiencing warm days and cool nights here in the Caribbean - but it is not going to last - during the summer months temperatures could rise as high as ninety degrees in the shade. Even though nighttime is usually a bit cooler - that would still mean hot, sticky uncomfortable nights if one is not prepared. Fans blowing hot air won't help that much - and air conditioning would mean a whopping electricity bill. How do you plan to sleep cool this summer?

No, England won't get that hot. I know it won't be satin or silk in hot weather.

We don't have heat like you do, but I still prefer to sleep with nothing on. I wear a loose cotton nightie if I'm away from home.

I am tempted usually, but I don't feel safe without at least something on.

I wear a night gown similar to the one in the photo, but it is a maroon color and it is longer.

With the minimal amount of clothes possible. It's my usual sleep wear, year round. I'll dispense with the blankets of course, and probably the sheet too if it gets too hot. I do have ceiling fans in all rooms, but as you said, it would just bring more hot air instead of cooling it down. I moved here in August last year and really didn't need my A/C so we'll see what happens here this year. Last year wasn't very warm, which was nice. I hope it does the same this year, then it will be more comfortable.

Won't it be nice if there was a balance? - not too much heat, or too much cold. I would love warm, balmy days and cool evenings - but that won't happen the year around.

My husband's philosophy is that if we pay for heat to keep warm in the winter, then we pay for a/c to keep cool in the summer. I always wear pure cotton or seersucker nightgowns or pjs, even in our winter months in Florida. It can't be cool enough for me when I sleep.

That's nice . I was born in a region where the weather is warm or hot the year around, but I much prefer cool temperatures.

@Courtlynn Air conditioning would solve the problem - but in my country it would send the electric bill way too high.

I'm not sure what I'd be doing. Our fans help a lot. I should think our nights aren't quite as hot as yours. I usually wear a thin cotton nightie.

A/C turned on to around 80, work out in the 100 degree weather and 80 feels cold.

Air conditioning would do the job. Do you work out in 100 degree weather?

If it's really hot, I will keep the window wide open all night. I keep my hair very short. I'll wear nothing but my bottom undies and have never needed air-conditioning so far.

Open windows - and shorter hair will definitely help a bit.

@Kandae11 I also want to mention that I won't read posts like this in the summer heat. This post is better for the winter when it's cold. .

@1hopefulman Then it's a good thing I wrote it in advance. During the summer, we can discuss cold weather.

We have air conditioning, and a ceiling fan, and I still wear only a pair of boxers to sleep in.

Air conditioning can get very cold - don't you shiver in your boxers?

I usually wear as little as possible, and keep a fan or AC on. I also have a cooling pillow. What I would really like to get is a dehumidfier..because I think I woud stay cool if I had that..it is not the summer heat, it is the humidity.

The humidity could be a problem. I could open my windows , but if I see the curtains move I'll imagine someone is out there
