Huh?: It's a personal choice. Some wear neither. Please elaborate as to the point of your question.

Depends upon goal: Most consider pajamas more comfortable and warm but they are not very sexy. Nightgowns and less warm but can enhance other aspects of sleep especially with a partner. The choice is personal.
