Loungewear vs Nightwear - What's the difference?

Loungewear vs Nightwear - What's the difference?

Belle Lingerie25 February 2022

Loungewear has become a vital section of our wardrobes, particularly over the last few years. Comfort is key and it's become the foundation to our attire and we're here for it. You obviously know what nightwear is, it's pyjamas that we wear during the evening to feel warm and cosy, and the outfit we wear when we *try* to get our much needed 8 hours rest. You might have been browsing our website and thought to yourself 'What's the difference between loungewear and nightwear?'. That's why in this blog, we're going to give you this information in order to make your shopping experience easier.


What's loungewear?


Loungewear is comfy clothing that we wear to lounge in, well, it used to be. Loungewear has vastly become a distinct part of our everyday lives. We would now choose comfort over pretty much anything when it comes to our attire. The great thing about loungewear is that it's most definitely stylish and you're able to form a great outfit out of amazing pieces that will leave you feeling comfortable all day long. Loungewear can be anything from a non-wired and non-padded bralette to a chunky pair of joggers to a hoodie or zipped jacket. Loungewear is commonly designed with thick, soft and breathable fabric that allows us to feel cosy and comfy. Below we're going to list some of our favourite loungewear items right now...


This Tommy Hilfiger Sherpa Hoodie is so on-trend and current. The natural colour is the appropriate and distinctive colour that we've all come to love hugely since 2021. Neutral colours are amazing pieces to have within your wardrobe as you can naturally build on them with other monochrome colours to create a stunning outfit that will keep you cosy all day long. The soft material will keep you warm and comfortable whenever you need it, so chuck this on with a pair of leggings to create a stylish yet simplistic look. The central branded logo completes the sporty designer look, adding a designer touch that everyone will recognise.

Next, we have the classic Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Lounge Joggers. Designed with an elasticated waist, side pockets and elasticated cuffs at the ankles, to give a great loungewear shape. These joggers are perfect for those days we want to just throw on some comfy, breathable pants that also look amazing and trendy too! The Calvin Klein brand is a classic look that most of us recognise and love and is definitely a timeless piece to have in your wardrobe. The joggers are designed to be super comfortable, easy to wear and super stylish.


What is Nightwear?


Nightwear is different to loungewear for a couple of reasons. Nightwear tends to be made with lighter, more airy material that may seem lighter and more breathable on the skin. Nightwear is often designed a little bit different to loungewear and tends to be less minimalistic, whereas pyjamas tend to be more patterned, coloured and unique. Nightwear is attire we wear on a night and whilst we're in bed, whereas loungewear is something we tend to wear lounging through the day and out of the house to be trendy yet comfortable! Below are some of our top picks in the nightwear section...


This Pour Moi Luxe Woven Twill Pyjama set is the perfect example of unique and sophisticated nightwear. Dive into the utmost comfort with this set. The lightweight and breathable fabric will allow your skin to feel free and fresh, even while you're sleeping. This Twill Pyjama set includes the classic button-down shirt and long pants, perfect for those cold nights. The bold colour complements the overall print and contrasting satin piping.


The next thing that differentiates nightwear from loungewear is the fact that nightwear can be more revealing and provocative. This Lise Charmel Sublime A Deux Sexy Nightie is the prime example of wearing luxury, sexy and comfortable nightwear that will make you look and feel your best during the evening and on a night. This sexy nightie from the Sublime A Deux range is the epitome of this label. The luxurious silk fabric flows around your body until approximately mid-thigh, subtly accentuating your curves. The opaque fabric creates an illusion of a half-cup design, with the upper part smoothly changing into richly embroidered transparent tulle material panels. The same layout is also featured on the back, creating an alluring open centre to match the tempting neckline. Both front and back panels connect at the neck, where there is a silky adjustable halterneck tie-up.
