Out with the boring nightgown, in with the hot frock! Whether you're a boxers and T-shirt gal, or a bra and panties woman, there's a sexier version out there of what you've been wearing. So why not upgrade your nighttime look, because hot bedroom wear is hot this summer.

For the T-shirt and boxers gal

The Green Giraffe Boxer and Smocked Cami set is flirty and sexy but still provides coverage if you don't want to expose a lot of skin. Still quite comfortable, you won't miss your old boxers and T -- and neither will your hubby!

You might not always feel sexy when you're pregnant, but you can definitely still look sexy (just ask your husband). If you're tired of sleeping in your man's fraternity T-shirt from college or your boxy nightgown, Cake Lingerie, designed by a mom tired of functional and boring sleepwear for pregnant women, is a great choice. Worn by Hollywood mamas -- Ali Larter, Mariah Carey, Heidi Klum, Pink, and Kourtney Kardashian -- with names like apple crumble road and toffee tank, you can't go wrong. Pictured is the chocolate-vanilla torte camisole and pants (sold as separates or as a set) is ultra-feminine and stretchy, with room for your growing tummy. Plus, the camisole is designed for nursing your new baby.

bra and panties

For the bra and panties woman

At least for one hot summer night, ditch that boring worn out bra and those granny panties (you know it's true) and try going retro with this fun polka dot bra and brief set by Blush Lingerie. And why not treat yourself (and your man) and snatch up the nightgown, also available in the same print.

personalized pajamas

For the buttoned up lady

If your nighttime uniform is a button up shirt and matching pant set, upgrading your look to silk bottoms and top from the will not only look sexier, but will feel sexier against your skin. Plus, you can personalize your sexy pajamas with your initials (or his). If you're ready to show a little leg, try the boy shorts and tank set -- and personalize that too!


For the woman who likes to lounge

For lounging before you get into bed, one or more of these PajamaSutra robes that fit like a feminine wrap dress will be a major step up from the flannel number you wear now.
