Women's Animal Print Sleepwear guide and information resource about Women's Animal Print Sleepwear presented by Apparel Search

Nightwear – also called sleepwear, nightclothes, or nightdress – is clothing designed to be worn while sleeping. The style of nightwear worn may vary with the seasons, with warmer styles being worn in colder conditions and vice versa. Some styles or materials are selected to be visually appealing or erotic in addition to their functional purposes.

Animal print sleepwear are made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such as a leopard, cheetah, zebra, tiger, spotted hyena, striped hyena, giraffe, or other animal.

Sleepwear for women includes the following primary categories.  All of which can be designed with animal print patterns.

  • Babydoll - A babydoll is a short, sometimes sleeveless, loose-fitting nightgown or negligee intended as nightwear for women. It sometimes has formed cups called a bralette for cleavage with an attached, loose-fitting skirt falling in length usually between the belly button and upper thigh. The garment is often trimmed with lace, ruffles, appliques, marabou, bows, and ribbons, optionally with spaghetti straps.
  • Chemise - A modern chemise is generally a woman's garment that vaguely resembles the older shirts but is typically more delicate, and usually more revealing. Most commonly the term refers to a loose-fitting, sleeveless undergarment or type of lingerie which is unfitted at the waist. It can also refer to a short, sleeveless dress that hangs straight from the shoulders and fits loosely at the waist. A chemise typically does not have any buttons or other fasteners and is put on by either dropping it over the head or stepping into it and lifting it up. As lingerie, a chemise is similar to a babydoll, which is also a short, loose-fitting, sleeveless garment. Typically, though, babydolls are looser fitting at the hips.
  • Negligee - The negligee or négligée, from the French: négligé, literally meaning "neglected", known in French as déshabillé, is a form of see-through clothing for women consisting of a sheer usually long dressing gown.  It is a form of nightgown intended for wear at night and in the bedroom.  Modern negligees are often much looser and made of sheer and diaphanous fabrics and trimmed with lace or other fine material, and bows. Multiple layers of fabric are often used.
  • Nightgown - A nightgown, nightie or nightdress is a loosely hanging item of nightwear, today almost exclusively worn by women. A nightgown is made from cotton, silk, satin, or nylon and may be decorated with lace appliqués or embroidery at the bust and hem.
  • Nightshirt - A nightshirt is a garment intended for wear while sleeping. It is longer than most regular shirts, reaching down to the thighs or below the knees, leaving some of the legs uncovered. It is generally loose-fitting to avoid restricting the wearer's movement while sleeping.
  • Pajamas - Pajamas are loose-fitting garments derived from the original garment and worn chiefly for sleeping, but sometimes also for lounging.  Contemporary pajamas are derived from traditional pajamas. There are many variations in style such as short sleeve pajamas, pajama bottoms of varying length, or, on occasion, one-piece pajamas.  Animal print pajamas are a popular pattern.
  • Peignoir - A peignoir is a long outer garment for women which is frequently sheer and made of chiffon or another translucent fabric. The word comes from French peigner, to comb the hair describing a garment worn while brushing one's hair, originally referring to a dressing gown or bathrobe.
  • Sleep shirts - a long or short sleep top that can be worn to sleep.
  • Sleep Pants - a long or short pant that can be worn to sleep.

Other types of garment are commonly worn for sleeping and can be patterned to represent animal fur, including t-shirts, tank tops, sweatpants and gym shorts as well as underwear.
