Let’s talk about pants. Do you just about hate them as much as I do?
Whether they are dress pants, jeans, shorts, skirts, capris, you name it, I’m sick of them.
Think of it this way. We spend precious moments of our mornings forcing ourselves into newly washed pants, allowing us to start our days with a negative connotation about our weight. Come lunchtime, we are either pulling up or pulling down those either too tight or too loose pants, making us debate on eating that delicious meal or skipping it for rabbit food. And by the time we get home, those pants have left marks on our waists or rashes in between our legs or muffin tops under our blouses.
I just want to be free.
And honestly, just wearing panties and a t-shirt to bed just isn’t cutting it anymore. Having to cover up in the wee hours of the morning when my only focus is to get to the coffee maker is not the type of start I really want to my day anymore. I know I’m not the only pants-hater out there these days.
So, it’s led me to wonder, what ever happened to nightgowns? What ever happened to these pants-less luxury pajamas ?
Looking back at the beginning of the 20th century, the nightgown ruled as the only appropriate nighttime wear for women because women were seen as ultra feminine. Only men wore pajamas. It was during the 1920s that pajamas began to gain some prominence. The appeal of the pajamas involves a certain amount of comfort and practicality.
Normally, most women prefer nightgowns to pajamas because the chosen fabric can be transparent and reveal more body features, in addition to being both soft and flowing. All of these elements lend themselves to a woman exuding more sex appeal in her environment. With sexy nightgowns, including those long sleeved, women are confident in themselves, making that confidence rub off on their partners. More over, long sleeve nightgowns can be sensuous too, like sexy nightgowns that leave a little more to the imagination. The nightgowns at SNOA are both elegant and affective.
Regardless, nightgowns are great because they are pants free! Being a woman, lying in a nightgown on a chilly night gives just the perfect amount of coverage to keep warm without having to wear pants. Same thing goes for on the warmer nights of the year. Nightgowns allow us to be cool with the freedom to cover up or not.
Now, I really hope I’m not sharing any new information with anyone. Honestly, pants can be good on a needed basis, but come time to get into bed, the feeling of kicking those two-legged things off into the hamper is the second best feeling of the night! Team #nopants; Now go free yourself and buy a nightgown!
The light from under the bathroom door outlines the king sized bed, flickering every so often as pink painted toes cover the slight airway. Throwing on just enough makeup to bring out her eyes, she tousles her hair into a loose bun, letting pieces of her sun-kissed hair fall to her cheekbones. Wearing a black silk robe, she outlines [...]

27 years ago, our very own Lisa Tanzman acted on her impulse to "give back." She founded a non-profit camp that reunites siblings separated in foster care, giving them the opportunity to relax, have fun, and heal through therapeutic play and nature-bonding activities.

You must be wondering, what luxury can come from a pajama set for women? I bet if you look in your dresser right this minute, you would find at least one pair of pajamas that you wear almost every night. Go ahead and look. I’ll wait…Got them? Good.Now that you're focused on this pair of PJs, consider whether [...]
As an everyday woman, relaxation is hard to come by. Working longer than the regular 9 to 5, being a woman is another full time job, and trust me, it doesn’t pay much (cue the men rolling their eyes). As a woman in the 21st century, not one day includes lounging on the couch sipping wine and eating cupcakes (if [...]
1. Make Sure It FitsNo matter how sexy a particular outfit is, if it doesn’t fit properly, the affect won’t be as appealing on you or your significant other. Sexy nightgowns and luxury pajamas that are too loose or overly constricting will fail to complement a woman's body, either hiding her best features or shifting the focus to features that [...]
When we think sexy, we think sleeveless. As an American woman, we have a culturally-influenced notion that in order to be alluring, we need to have as little clothing on as possible.It is a very limiting construct, and most women don't feel comfortable baring all. We want beauty, and intrigue, but also respect...and skimpy doesn't always [...]
Since every woman is unique in the way she looks, it goes without saying that one size does not fit all. When it comes to clothing, only items that fit well will complement a woman's figure. Anything that is misfitting in some way will only make her feel less attractive.Women always want to feel good about the way [...]
Women around the world acknowledge that clothing choices can dramatically improve our moods. For example, a quick trip to the store dressed in sweatpants and a tractor-pull logo T-shirt makes us far less positive, outgoing and decisive than had we chosen a pair of trendy jeans topped with a cashmere sweater. By the same token, [...]
