Heres a confession: I dont usually wear pajamas. My sleeping attire usually consists of yoga pants or leggings and whatever comfortable shirts available at the time that wont totally clash with the color of the pants. I usually think pajamas are a waste of money, but Im willing to make one exception.
Someone gave me a pair of Victorias Secrets flannel pajamas years ago, though, and I still haveand wearthem. I even bought more. Theyre cozy, durable, and incredibly soft.
Ive checked fabrics in other stores and nothing compares. The other pajamas Ive tried have either been too rough, too thin, or too stiff. Sometimes they even make me itch. Sometimes they shrinka lotand thats bad news for my ankles because Im tall (58).
Theyre true to size, from what I can tell, not that perfection matters with an oversized button-up top and drawstring waist. I was given a medium and usually wear a small, and mine are still loose even after the minimal shrinking they may have done.
You can choose your length now, though Im not sure that was always an option (and Im fairly certain I have the regular length, which is long enough on me).
The pattern selection is cute. They seem to have removed some of their zanier patterns in favor of more classic ones, like plaid, gingham, leopard print, dots, stars, and snowflakes. The background color selections arent too wild, either, but there is some red, bright blue, and mint green in there for those of us who love color.
These pajamas are a far cry from satin nighties on the sexiness scale, as far as bedtime wear goes. However, theyll keep you warm when a nightie wont and theyre a little more attractive than your average worn out pair of yoga pants and a t-shirt.
These sets are a little pricy at $49.50, but keep your eyes open for online coupon codes. Also, right now theyre giving out Secret Reward cards with any $10 purchase. Each card will be good for at least $10 on your next purchase (some are worth $500!).
If you plan to be doing some shopping at Victorias Secret in December, which is when you can use the gift card, that may make it worth the purchase.
