As someone who works from home full time, you can bet 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 luckily there are plenty elevated sets out there that makes 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” clothing. But the good news is that Old Navy has jumped on board cute loungewear trend with its Waffle Knit Pajamas Cami Bralette Top ($22, originally $25) and High-waisted waffle knit pajama joggers ($35). The brand recently unveiled them for fall, and when I noticed they have a near-perfect five-star review, I added both to my cart. My honest thoughts on the upcoming set.
What I like about this Loungewear set
I’m wearing this loungewear set as I write this and am generally thrilled with its fit. For starters, the cotton blend material is soft and slightly stretchy, and light enough that you won’t have sweaty minutes wearing it. And the waffle knit texture is as chic as it looks online. (Dare I say 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 nip 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 details and the jogger pockets, which are deep and soft.
What is worth noting
As mentioned earlier, Old Navy shoppers love 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 be large. My usual size medium fit both perfectly.
Another thing worth noting is that the brand has other waffle knit offerings to mix and/or match with this cami and joggers. There is Long-sleeved waffle knit pajama top ($35), the Oversized waffle knit tie robe ($50), and High-waisted thermal pajama boxer shorts, 3-inch inseam ($12–$15, originally $30).
Who is this Loungewear set best for?
This loungewear set is great for stay-at-home and/or work-from-homers who want the next step up from pajamas that make them feel put together without sacrificing comfort.
- Both 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 on cold and tumble dry on low.
