The Find: Reader Favorite Pajamas

My friend Theresa is the one who convinced me to give up the t-shirts and shorts I often wore to bed in favor of real pajamas.  And I will never go back.  There’s something cathartic about putting on soft, cozy pjs at the end of a hard day.

These pajamas were one of the most purchased items on this blog in 2020.  And once you own a pair, you will not wonder why.

Nordstrom’s Moonlight Pajamas are well-made, incredibly soft, and perfect for winter or summer.  I have washed and worn mine hundreds of times over the past two-plus years, and they’re just starting to wear out.  At the end of every day, these pajamas (I own five pair) are like a warm hug.  They also come in plus-size.

Looking for a less expensive pair that I also endorse?  Target has a nice pair.  I own these and my only complaint is that after three months they are starting to show their age.

    I’ve looked at this pajamas and wanted to click purchase many times, but I’m 5’2 and not sure if I’ll be swimming in them. Are they really long/ would they shrink in the wash?

      I’m 5’0 and always am afraid of the same thing. That’s why I always go with shorts. I did find that they have a nightgown from the same line if that’s your sort of thing – https://www.nordstrom.com/s/nordstrom-lingerie-moonlight-nightshirt/3719418

      I’m 5’9” and pretty leggy. They fit the length of my legs perfectly and did not shrink (any) in the wash, so I imagine that they would be too long for a more petit person.

      That said, I’m less impressed with my moonlight PJs. I always opt for wearing any of my Lake PJs instead (which are buttery soft and worth every penny.)

    Boy, this is spot on. I have 2 pairs, and I’m sure I will have more. They last even longer if you air dry them – they take only a day to dry, and they look like the day I bought them. They are not just cozy – they are elegant.

    I second the stars above recommendation from target. Very soft and I love them. I am 5’2 and they are long on me but not so much that I can’t walk around the house in them.
