Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Here at Racked, we’re obsessed with finding you the very best things to wear that are worth spending your money on, from denim to lingerie to workout clothes. Last year we launched the Racked Lounge community on Facebook, and we’ve been thrilled to watch our readers discuss their favorite finds, from the perfect white button-down to the best black skinny jeans. Racked readers are an incredibly smart and savvy community, and they’ve often turned our team on to new picks we had yet to try ourselves.

So we decided to turn the tables and ask them to give us their recommendations, and each week we’ll publish a roundup. To kick it off, we asked readers to share their favorite pajama sets — for those who want to graduate from sleeping in old college tees and sweats to something a little more put-together.

First, the most popular picks:

And here are some other honorable mentions:

“I loooove PJ Salvage PJ sets ($30 to $120; sizes XS to XL). They come in the most adorable prints and are super cozy.” —Yasemin

Aerie’s pajama legging pants (normally $39.95; sizes XXS through XXL) are incredibly comfy and have been on sale for $12.” —Andrea

Coyuchi linen ($60 to $100; sizes S through L)! The perfect weight. And if I need to run outside it’s not like I’m wearing a stained oversized tee.” —Joyce

Soma Intimates (from $24 for single pieces to $140 for sets; sizes S through XL). Soooooo soft and cozy and cute prints!” —Elysia

“I love PJ sets, and for Christmas I got the best gift: Julianna Rae silk PJs ($212; sizes XS through XXL) in lavender and I was in love.” —Mimi

Lunya (from $68 for single pieces to $178 for sets; sizes XS through XL) is AMAZING. Expensive but stylish!” —Madeleine

Marigot Collection ($100 to $160; sizes S through L). Every purchase is an investment but so worth it. I’ve given PJs to several people who also fell in love. Watch for their sales.” —Susan

“I own at least five pairs of Uniqlo Drape pants ($14.90; sizes XS through XL) in different patterns and colors. They’re light and breezy enough for SoCal summers, heavy enough for winter here, have POCKETS, don’t drag on the ground when I take the dog out wearing them AND they have enough room that I’ve continued wearing them through my pregnancy! CANT BEAT EM.” —Maggie
