    Hello! I usually tie a silk scarf around my pillow because caps either slip out during the night or are too tight to make me sleep comfortably. I think the results are pretty much the same, but its better for me personally.
    I've also seen improvements in my skin when I started to change my pillow scarf every two days

    That's a clever solution to the problem of a cap being uncomfortable for the wearer, I'll definitely try it if I feel similar discomfort. I've resolved to sew my own bonnet so that I can get the best fit for my head. Fingers crossed!!

    Thanks for the insight

    Your note about the elastic creating friction at the hairline is something I have been pondering with concern since starting to look into sleep bonnets. My hair is fine and my hairline is quite unable to withstand a lot of rubbing without experiencing breakage. May I ask if the elastic was exposed or covered by the material?

    I've wondered if sewing my own bonnet and making sure the elastic is covered by the silk would help at all, though I suppose if it's tight enough friction will occur regardless.
    Sorry I completely forgot to reply to this! The elastic was completely enclosed in satin, very well constructed I must say - the problem was that I simply bought a size too small. But like I said, no problems now I've modified it it will be good to see how you get on with making your own, I admire people who have such skills to do things like that!

    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    If you're good at sewing that's a great idea, you can get a big silk scarf for quite cheap and do it completely custom to your taste
