I wanted to hop over here really quick for a bonus post today about the Lake Pajamas sale. This is their big sale of the year and the perfect time to stock up on the comfiest PJs. I’ll also answer some of the most commonly asked questions I’ve been getting in Instagram DMs.
LAKE PAJAMAS SALE
ARE LAKE PAJAMAS WORTH IT?
To me, yes. I love fancy pajamas and always go to bed at night wearing a matching set of pajamas. They are incredibly, incredibly soft. The pima cotton makes it worth it to me. I am usually freezing cold when I go to bed and then get super hot while sleeping and then cold again in the morning and I am most comfortable in the pima cotton throughout the night.
ARE THEY FLATTERING?
So… I’m going to be honest. They are cute, but I wouldn’t say they’re the sexiest pajamas you’re going to wear. I wish the neckline wasn’t as much of a scoop (I think a crewneck would be more flattering), but this does not stop me from wearing them night after night.
WHAT SIZE SHOULD I GET?
I always buy a size up from my usual size. I’d get an XS in pajamas from J. Crew and I buy Small from Lake Pajamas as a reference. They’re not super fitting to begin with so you can get away with a bigger size and then you don’t have to worry about them shrinking or being too small.
HOW DO YOU WASH THEM?
I throw them into the wash with hot water and dry on full blast. I’ve never had a problem! One time a hot pink sports bra turned a section of my pants a little pink, but I soaked with some OxyClean and it came right out. I’m not a fan of having to baby my clothing, though if you have the time to line dry, it’s probably better for the integrity of the clothing. They remain as soft as comfy as the first day I bought them!
WHAT STYLE SHOULD I BUY?
I think in order of preference: long/long, long/short, and then short/short.
