Are you on the short end and are looking for pajama pants that actually work for your small frame? Then keep reading cause we’ll be sharing some of the best petite pajama pants and where you can shop for them. When you are 5′5″ inches tall and under, it can be quite frustrating sometimes when you cannot find something as basic as pajama bottoms that fit your smaller frame the right way.
Luckily prayers of Petite ladies have been heard by the gods of fashion, and most brands have stepped up to fill the void of the petite clothing market that once had a reputation for being short on fashion. Now add to that the sleepwear component, and things may get complicated again.
However, there’s a good chance that though it may take a while, you’ll find something cute and fun that looks great on you, and perhaps most importantly, comfortable. Keep in mind, if you are short, your goal is always to improve your proportion, and when it comes to petite lounge pants, your goal should be comforting; after all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in these.

Tips to choose petite pajama pants
- Know your body shape: Petites also come in different shapes, so before you start spending your money, identify your body shape first and keep your proportions and measurements in mind.
- Ideally, petite pajamas should have an inseam of 26 to 28 inches, and sleeve length should be proportionally shorter than regular length too.
- It is also recommendable to go with 1-2 inches shorter than your normal pant inseam if you wear your PJs barefoot most of the time.
- Speaking about fabrics, cotton is the top choice for the best combination of comfort and durability; plus, they are affordable. The cotton pajamas are cool, soft, and comfortable; plus, they absorb and release sweat relatively quickly.
