USERS SAID: "I was eyeing these pajamas for a long time before I finally gave in and bought them because I wasn't sure if the $30 price tag was worth it. Boy, was I wrong! Not only are these the softest, most comfortable pajamas I've ever worn, but they also are not clingy, they came in cute packaging, and they make me feel cute when I'm sleeping!"

Much less waking up in the middle of the night, and I'm no longer getting out of bed to change pajamas. They are such a success—I immediately ordered another pair."
