As someone who works full-time from home, you can bet I have an extensive collection of loungewear. My go-to is when I want to feel more put together than pajamas, and luckily, there are plenty of advanced sets that make that possible. The downside is that there are too many of them really Expensive, and hard to justify spending as much (or more!) on sweatshirts or sweatpants as you would on “normal” clothing. But the good news is that Old Navy bucks the cute-loungewear trend with its waffle-knit pajama cami bralette top ($22, originally $25) and high-waisted waffle-knit pajama jogger pants ($35). The brand recently unveiled them for fall, and when I noticed they had nearly perfect five-star reviews, I added both pieces to my cart. My honest thoughts on the set ahead.
What I love about this loungewear set
I’m wearing this loungewear set as I type this and am thrilled with its fit overall. For starters, the cotton-blend material is soft and slightly stretchy, and light enough that you won’t sweat after wearing it. And the waffle-knit texture is as chic as it looks online. (Dare I say it looks like a hoax for a high-end loungewear brand?)
Cami bralette tops are really supportive, while high-waisted bottoms fit like traditional joggers: they cinch in at the waist and offer a comfortable fit through the hips and thighs, tapering at the ankles. My favorite details are the matching three-button placket detail and the joggers’ pockets, which are deep and soft.
What is worth noting
As mentioned earlier, Old Navy buyers love this set – myself included. While there aren’t many less-than-favorable reviews, some buyers have noted that they find bralettes and joggers to run big. Both were a perfect fit in my usual size medium.
Another thing to note is that the brand has other waffle-knit offerings to mix and/or match with these cami and joggers. There’s the long-sleeve waffle-knit pajama top ($35), oversized waffle-knit tie-belt robe ($50), and high-waist thermal pajama boxer shorts, 3-inch inseam ($12–$15, originally $30).
Who is this loungewear set best for?
This loungewear set is great for homebodies and/or home workers who want to take the next step up from pajamas that make them feel put together without sacrificing comfort.
- Both the top and bottom come in sizes XS–4X.
- The top and bottom come in three other colors: brown, blue and pink.
- To keep both top and bottom in tip-top shape, machine-wash cold and tumble-dry low.
