I Plan to Live in This Waffle-Knit Loungewear Set Until Further Notice
As someone who works from home full-time, you can bet that I have an extensive collection of loungewear. It's my go-to when I want to feel more put-together than I would in pajamas, and thankfully, there are lots of elevated sets out there that make this possible. The downside is that many of them are really pricey, and it can be hard to justify spending as much (or more!) on a sweatshirt or sweatpants as you would on "normal" clothes. But the good news is that Old Navy has hopped on board 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 that they have a nearly perfect five-star review, I added both pieces to my cart. My honest thoughts on the set ahead.
What I Like About This Loungewear Set
I'm wearing this loungewear set as I type this and am overall thrilled with its fit. For starters, the cotton-blend material is soft and slightly stretchy and lightweight enough that you won't get sweaty minutes into wearing it. And the waffle-knit texture is as chic as it looks online. (Dare I say that it looks like a dupe for a high-end loungewear brand?)
The cami bralette top is really supportive, while the high-waisted bottoms fit like traditional joggers: they cinch at the waist and offer a relaxed fit through the hip and thigh, tapering at the ankle. My favorite details are the matching three-button placket and the pockets, which are deep and soft.
What's Worth Noting
As mentioned earlier, Old Navy shoppers adore this set — myself included. While there aren't many less-than-favorable reviews, a few shoppers noted that they found the bralette and joggers to run large. My usual size medium was a perfect fit in both.
Another thing worth noting is that the brand has other waffle-knit offerings to mix and/or match with this cami and joggers. There's the Long-Sleeve Waffle-Knit Pajama Top ($35), the Oversized Waffle-Knit Tie-Belt Robe ($50), and the High-Waisted Thermal Pajama Boxer Shorts, 3-Inch Inseam ($12–$15, originally $30).
Who This Loungewear Set Is Best For
This loungewear set is great for homebodies and/or work-from-homers who want 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 the top and bottom in tip-top shape, machine-wash on cold and tumble-dry on low.
