Sleepwear today is not just a type of home wear that provides comfort and warmth, but also a stylish wardrobe item that allows you to stay showy and feel confident even at night. That is why fashion designers pay so much attention to the design of nightgowns and pajamas.
One of the most sophisticated materials that makes a woman look luxurious is silk. Silk pajamas are very soft and pleasant to the body, do not cause irritation, light and incredibly seductive.
In modern textile industry, the concept of “silk” includes not only natural silk silkworm cocoons, but also chemical materials. The most common are artificial viscose and various types of synthetics. In appearance, they can practically not differ from natural ones, everything depends on the processing of the fiber at the production stage and the type of weaving.
Viscose is made from natural cellulose, and therefore has good hygienic properties, but not so practical – during the operation of the product from it are deformed, they can appear on the pellets, they also crumple. In the wet state, such things lose strength, they can not be squeezed and twisted. Viscose has various names: rayon, acetate silk, rayon (not to be confused with synthetic).
Synthetic materials (polyester) are quite inexpensive, strong enough, but have significant drawbacks and largely lose natural: electrify, do not allow the skin to breathe, do not warm in cold weather, and during the heat they are very uncomfortable, since they practically do not absorb moisture .
Silk has many advantages:
very soft. It streams around the figure, forms beautiful folds with satin sheen. Does not rub or irritate the skin;
does not accumulate static electricity. Unlike synthetics, things from silk do not “crack” and do not sparkle in the dark; they also do not help hair to become electrified;
hygroscopic. Pajamas will absorb all the moisture that is released through the skin during the night’s rest, and also dries quickly, leaving no feeling of wet clothes;
possesses low heat conductivity. In winter and in cold periods when heating devices are not turned on, silk warms beautifully, and in summer it gives a feeling of coolness;
wear resistant and durable. Does not become thinner in places of greatest friction;
will give even the simplest style an elegant and attractive look.
