Petite Pajamas: The Best Types of Luxury Loungewear for Summer

As the world returns to normal, we will be starting to live a more active lifestyle. Especially with the warmer months coming up we will be doing more outdoor activities such as going to the beach, traveling as well as eating al fresco. With the upcoming boom of date nights and dinner parties, we will be looking to shed the business of the day and relax.

There is something both comforting and invigorating in slipping into luxurious fabrics that put you at ease. Cosabella aims to provide lingerie and loungewear for all sizing, including petite sizing. Finding comfortable, luxurious petite pajamas, loungewear, and lingerie does not have to be complicated. Check out our guide for tips and styles for summer.

What Are the Benefits of Owning Luxury Petite Pajamas and Lingerie?

Research has revealed the importance of adequate sleep and reducing stress for the benefit of our overall health. You may already be practicing meditation and a fitness program to obtain this.

Did you ever consider how your loungewear and undergarments contribute to your sense of well-being? Probably not, but let’s look at these benefits.

Sense of Touch

We all experience differences in sensory processing, and much research has been conducted into how certain fabrics and how the fit of our clothing can affect our mood.

You may not be overly sensitive to the feel of various textiles, but you probably understand how trying to relax or sleep in clothing that is bunching or poking because it has to be rolled up is frustrating.

Have you ever tried to sleep in pajamas that are too loose and awake to them halfway down your thighs? Not pleasant!

Body Temperature

Natural fabrics tend to breathe well and give a cooling effect that reduces tension and eases us into a normal rhythm for sleep. Pima cotton is preferred as a proven fabric for regulating body temperature. It is a rare cotton that is used in luxury fabrics. 


When your garments fit well, it’s a joy to walk by the standing mirror. Your confidence goes up and any anxiety from the day melts away. It’s a dopamine boost!

Begin With Your Measurements

A common misconception is that petite women are just short. True, pant lengths can be a major problem. However, the body of a petite woman entails several considerations for a flattering fit.


Just as not all people are the same, not all petite bodies are the same. Some women have shorter torsos and longer legs, while others have longer torsos and shorter legs.

Finding the right length should not be determined solely by your height. Your inseam measurement determines the length of your pants. 

To measure your inseam, begin at the crotch where your leg joins your groin. Roll a tape measurer down to your ankle. This is your inseam measurement. You can also compare your measurement by measuring pants that you already own. Use the same method. Fold your pants in half and measure from the crotch to the bottom hem.


Your hip measurement ensures the proper fit that has room for your bottom and doesn’t fall down. Your waist is the narrowest portion of your torso. To measure your hip correctly, find the portion that includes your hip bone and the fullest part of your derriere. 


Another misconception about petite sizes is small breasts. This may be true for some but certainly not for all petite women. Women who have small frames but a large bust have shopping challenges that Cosabella recognizes with its Curvy Collection. The Curvy Collection is made with a smaller band and larger cups!

There are two measurements for the correct bra size. The band length is determined by measuring your torso just beneath your breasts. 

Your cup size is determined by measuring your bust. Your bust is the fullest part of your breasts. It should be measured just beneath your armpits and across the nipples for the most accurate measurement.

See our measurement guide for bras.

Best Selling Petite Loungewear

Cosabella’s has a collection designed specifically for the needs of petite women. However, knowing your measurements will give you many more style options for a petite frame. See our measurement guide here.

Petite Pajamas

Our petite loungewear is designed for a smaller frame. This is particularly important for pants. The petite inseam ranges from 27.4″ – 28.8″ in length.

The Bella Printed Long Sleeve Top & Pant for loungewear and sleepwear is designed for Petites (5’3 and under). Shorter sleeves and an adjustable drawstring waist mean you can lounge in comfort without constantly rolling sleeves and hems.

Made of pure Peruvian Pima cotton, you will keep you cool and relaxed while sipping your favorite beverage and winding down in style.  The ombre pattern found in the Bella Petite pajamas is also available in a boxer set. With a shorter inseam, petites from extra small to large can feel comfortable and flirty in these cheeky boxers. 

Bella also has petite button-down pajamas in solid colors made from the same luxury materials.
