You might think having the soul of a Dragon entitles you to a life of good mead and lusty Argonian maids in the Cloud District, but being the Dragonborn is hard work.
Running errands all around Skyrim, fighting dragons, and trying to exterminate the entire Draugr population of the province is what you do for sixteen hours a day, seven days a week.
Understandably, the Dragonborn is pretty beat by the end of the day.
Although you can’t go to sleep in full Dwemer armor. Hell, even Leather armor might be too much!
If you want to make the most of your time in bed, you need quality sleepwear.
Vanilla Skyrim lacks comfortable clothing – so we’ll turn our gaze towards mods for quality custom PJs.
10. Armor and Clothing Extension
The first mod we’re looking at is Kryptopyr’s Armor and Clothing Extension, which introduces a wealth of new robes and tunics for mages and civilians.
Some of these robes are delicate and simple – just the kind of thing you’d expect a fairly wealthy warrior to wear as they read a book by the fireplace before heading to bed.
Get this if you just want something comfortable that doesn’t conflict with Skyrim’s aesthetic, and that won’t look ridiculous if you choose to leave the house for groceries or some other errand without putting on your armor.
9. Leather Clothes
Many people prefer wearing sporty clothing that’s easy to move in when they’re headed off to bed.
This is particularly useful for someone like the Dragonborn, who might need to spring into action fast when their sleep is interrupted by a Daedric Prince or some agent of a secret organization.
Petrovich’s Leather Clothes introduces Skyrim’s version of “spats and a sports bra” – a convenient, lore-friendly leather outfit Skyrim ladies can wear after a long day of moving around in heavy armor.
Of course, a rogue or a hunter might also wear this while on the prowl – though it seems a bit light for Skyrim’s cold weather.
8. Blanket Scarf
After putting on my pajamas on a cold winter night, the first thing I do is grab a warm fuzzy blanket and wrap it around myself like I’m some kind of medieval wanderer.
Not only does it keep me warm, but I feel pretty damn cool too.
If you’re silly like me, you’ll love Keung’s Blanket Scarf mod – introducing 10 warm and colorful blanket scarves for the Dragonborn to wrap themselves in.
Camping out in the wilds, this is the only sleepwear you need.
7. Sleep or Swim Attire
I can’t bring myself to wear pajamas in the summer.
At most, I’ll throw on a t-shirt and shorts, but you’ll find me sleeping in my underwear for the most part.
If you feel like your Dragonborn might be the type to sleep in their undies, you need to get Giamel’s Sleep or Swim Attire, which adds lore-friendly linen boxer shorts and a simple bra.
The tough linen fabric makes these durable and convenient for the traveling warrior. It’s rough and rustic – just like Nord society.
6. Nocturnal’s Archmage Robes
Nocturnal is the Daedric Prince of Night and Darkness, and though she’s not really related to sleep – that would be Vaermina – she definitely seems dressed for the occasion.
We only get to see it after summoning Nocturnal at the end of the Thieves Guild questline.
But her robes look extraordinarily soft and comfortable – not to mention sexy.
Anyone sleeping in those robes would look like some sort of perfume ad. At least you don’t have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction in Skyrim.
The robes aren’t accessible in the vanilla game, but with this mod by Alexraptor, you can get them as your reward for becoming the Archmage of the College of Winterhold.
5. Diana Vampyre’s Fancy Dress
Another somewhat sexy option for the well-trained Dragonborn to show off her toned muscles and smooth skin is Diana Vampyre’s Dancy Dress by LostDayWalker.
While not originally meant as sleepwear, this seductive outfit looks exactly like a nightgown when dyed the right color.
It’s delicate and just a little bit see-through – just what a vampire needs to seduce their next thrall.
You probably won’t want to wear this on a bedbug-ridden bed in Windhelm. But it’s perfect for lounging around your player home feeling and looking like a million dollars.
4. Apachii Divine Elegance Store
Skyrim may be Tamriel’s coldest province, but running and fighting in a full suit of heavy armor can still make you sweat like a pig.
After a day of slow-cooking in your own juices, you’d love to strip down to your underwear, take a nap by the hearth, and let its warmth rejuvenate you.
Apachii Divine Elegance Store helps you do that in style with a wide variety of stylish male and female underwear based on what Geralt and Yennefer wear in The Witcher 3. Good luck finding good-looking male underwear anywhere else!
The mod is much more extensive than just underwear, though.
There are all sorts of attractive TW3 light armor sets waiting to be discovered. Check it out and see what you think.
3. Comfy Cow Pajamas
Onesies are a versatile pajama style that can be either adorable or sexy, depending on how you wear them.
Worn as intended, with the front zipper all the way up, these Comfy Cow Pajamas by Bryson will cover every inch of your body with soft, warm fabric.
Coupled with the cute cow print, it’ll make you look like the cutest Dragonborn baby.
On the other hand, you can lower the zipper to show off your well-trained Dragonborn bod. The female version even comes with a cow print bikini top to match the one-piece pajamas.
These are available in 11 different colors ranging from classic black and white, to bright and adventurous colors like yellow, orange, and purple.
2. Sleepwear Clothes
This might be surprising to learn about someone who writes about Skyrim mods for a living – but I actually have some experience with the mythical creatures known as “girlfriends.”
If there’s one thing I learned throughout my time in a relationship, it’s that women love sleeping in oversized t-shirts.
Who needs a pajama when a giant t-shirt is basically a “casual” nightgown in light, breathable fabrics?
Modder Nekomata17 will gladly lend your lady Dragonborn their biggest t-shirt with the Sleepwear Clothes mod.
1. Animal Pajamas
Also known as “Kigurumi”, animal pajamas are the perfect way for people young and old, to feel adorable when going to sleep.
Do you think this is for women and children?
Even the burly gym-bro who deadlifts 300lbs just to warm up wants to feel “cute” from time to time.
Give your Dragonborn a chance to drop the prophesied hero persona and relax at home with one of 10 adorable onesies based on different animal species.
My favorites are the hen, the frog, and the classic panda.
Considering how good the Dragonborn is at jump-climbing mountains, they might prefer the goat.
