Who knew it could be so hard to buy a nightie that feels comfortable to wear in bed, but has enough coverage so it isn't too risqué to wear in front of the kids?

Another thing that can stand in the way of finding good nightwear for women? The fact that so many adult styles are covered in childish slogans and illustrations.

What do we want? Nightwear that is comfortable, cool and classic, with pretty details and a great price point.

It's with much relief that we've discovered – yet again – that Marks & Spencer can read our minds.

Because this M&S Pure Cotton Broderie Trim Long Nightdress, £15 is, quite literally, the answer to our (sweet) dreams.

Why we rate it

For the ultimate in comfort, this V-neck nightie is made with pure cotton jersey (which has been responsibly sourced – no eco nightmares here) so it'll move and stretch with your body as you sleep.

As ever, M&S leads the way with size diversity – it's available in sizes 6 to 24 in a crisp, fresh white or a classic navy.

Pretty, but practical, this is nightgown perfection. (M&S)

It's also a longer length, which is great for comfort and modesty. But if you're worried about it being too long, one (petite) customer reassures: "Size 10 fitted normally – [I'm] a petite 12 5ft 2in. Didn't drag on floor."

But we especially love the gorgeous, broderie sleeves and detail at the top of the back. It elevates this nightie from a nice-to-have staple, to a feminine, pretty and expensive-looking must-have.

What the reviews say

This £15 must-have is a winner for comfort, cost and style. Plus the M&S Pure Cotton Broderie Trim Long Nightdress makes a fantastic gift.

One woman even received the navy nightie as a present and loved it so much she brought herself the white one too.

  • "Lovely nightdress, beautiful soft cotton and very good value."

  • "I really love this nightie. It’s so comfy and also more stylish compared to other long nighties. The cotton material keeps me cool at night and the feeling against my skin is lovely."

  • "I was given a navy nightie as a present and so pleased with it l bought the white one. Soft, comfortable, and looks nice on."

  • "A beautiful grown-up nightdress – well cut to complement your shape & with NO infantile teddy bears or other childish emblems on it!"

  • "Lovely long nightdresses bought for my mum for Mother’s Day, she already had one which she loves so I decided to get her 2 more. Comfortable, they wash really well and don’t lose their shape."
