The sign of a truly great set of pajamas is when it takes a real mental effort to take them off in the morning. You're warm and cozy, and the idea of replacing your soft PJ pants with stiff jeans is enough to make you hit the snooze button one more time. They may not be good for productivity, but Parade's new waffle pajamas are my new favorite loungewear, and I'd wear them all day, everyday if I could.
I first fell for Parade's Internet-famous underwear earlier this year, followed by its comfy bralettes, so when I got the chance to test out its new PJs, I wasn't surprised by how much I loved them. The brand launched a collection of loungewear styles in its new waffle material, including bike shorts, joggers, and cropped tanks, in mid-November. I tested out a set featuring a loose-fitting long-sleeve shirt and wide-leg pants, and it lives up to Parade's comfortable and modern reputation.
To buy: $88 (was $98); yourparade.com.
The fabric is made of recycled plush yarn for a buttery soft texture that feels lovely on the skin. While it will keep you warm, the material remains lightweight and breathable enough to wear to sleep underneath the covers without overheating (no night sweats here!). And the somewhat oversized silhouette adds to its airy feel.
You can order a matching set or mix and match different styles and colors from the cozy waffle collection. Everything comes in the same soft waffle fabric and most pieces are available in five earth-inspired colors—cloud white, teddy brown, crocodile green, and more—in sizes XS to 3XL.
Prices start at $26 for individual pieces, and a complete set usually goes for $98, but it's $10 off right now. If you place an order by December 15, it'll arrive by Christmas with standard shipping. Treat yourself or a loved one to a seriously comfortable PJ set made for nonstop wear. Trust me, you won't want to take these off.
