Piping Pajamas

For the past two holiday seasons, I have gifted loved ones classic piped pajama sets. Navy on light blue woven shirt and pant sets for everyone.

For every female under 5′-10″ and every male under 6′-4″, that is. That would mean that while my mom, dad, brother-in-law, and husband are snoozing in some classic pajamas,  my little sister and I are missing out on a perfectly preppy pair of pajamas. Devastating, really.

Long Tall Sally rolled out their holiday pajama set and I immediately spied a knit interpretation of the classic pajama set. Hours later, it was en route to my house. Target acquired, target captured.

While on occasion, I have been know to borrow the woven set that I gave my husband, I love and have fully converted to the soft knit of the Long Tall Sally set. It is just exponentially more cozy that his set. My new set runs longer and it is just perfectly proportioned for the taller female frame.

Whether I am suffering from a case of body dysmorphia or the clothing is just cut more accurately as an effect of the length being sufficient for my frame, as is the case with many items that I have procured from Long Tall Sally, I would suggest anyone who is interested in these pajamas to order a size or two smaller than your go-to size. The pants have a banded waistband, so going up a size intending that you will be able to take advantage of a drawstring is not a viable option. Despite this, high five to Long Tall Sally for the reminder that I am not actually as large as some other brands have me believe I am.
