Plus-size sleepwear can be incredibly difficult to find in most brick-and-mortar retail stores, with sizes larger than a 3X virtually impossible.  While many women will wear t-shirts, yoga pants, leggings, and their underwear as alternatives, feminine nightgowns, trendy pajama sets, and plush robes are readily available on-line in both plus and super sizes. 

As a favorite gift in many families around the Christmas holidays, for Mother's Day, and as students get ready to go away for college, sleepwear appealing to both young and more mature women is in demand.  Caftan style loungewear is also popular on resort vacations and sometimes can even double as swim cover-ups. 

Sexier styles more normally found in lingerie shops and some of the plus specialty retailers are favored by some, especially for special occasions such as honeymoons and romantic getaways.

Fall and winter months see fabrics such as flannel as popular choices, while spring and summer sleepwear tends to be lighter and barer with knit and woven cotton especially popular.  Luxury fabrics such as silk are worn all year, and often given as gifts.
