Rated 4 out of 5 by coloradoBean54 Nice but not 100% cotton
I bought these without realizing that they aren't 100% cotton. As a woman of a certain age, I usually prefer 100% cotton since fabric with even a small amount of synthetic fiber doesn't breathe well enough. These aren't too bad during cooler weather, but I find them way too hot for warmer weather. They are a bit stiff at first but soften with a few washings. They look nice and are well made. I find the pants more comfortable than the top. Would recommend if you're not sensitive to spandex (3%).

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeachBumGal Mix and match would be better
I really hate to add a "fair" review but hope this may help someone else who may be an "odd" size. For years I have been wearing men's pajamas, classic style - short sleeve & short bottoms. Yes, men's. Sleeping is for sleep, not a fashion show, and I need comfort when I sleep. I was so happy to see that there were Classic Poplin pajamas for WOMEN finally available at LL Bean!!! And with pretty and colorful patterns!!! I do love the patterns and the material and the PJ's do look very nice and seem to be made well. My problem was with the fit. I normally wear medium sized pants and depending on the top, a large or an extra large and that's mainly due to my bust #D size cup#. I was on the fence about ordering since I prefer shorts instead of long pants for the bottoms, but I really, really liked these and my mom said she could cut and hem the pants to convert into shorts #she sews#. I ordered two sets of women's large in two different color patterns. Why did I order large when I have a D cup? Some reviews stated that they fit boxy and roomy and according to the size chart and my actual measurements, I thought the large would be fine. Again, I normally wear women's medium pants but since these were elastic waist with a drawstring, I thought I could make it work as a set. Shipment and delivery very quick and I had the order a few days later. Went to try them on and the pants are way too big, even with drawstring and I have more room in each pant leg for both of my legs - way too big. The top fit, but it was rather snug across the bust #even strain on buttons when spreading my arms apart#. The large wasn't going to work. I need "roomy" to sleep and would do better with the women's XL, but since they only come as a set, I can't justify the price for just a top. Unfortunately I'll be returning them without an exchange. Suggestions: Offer "mix and match". Most women have an even build, meaning they can wear the same size top as the bottoms. There are a few of us women who just aren't built that way. Some, like me, are quite "busty/top heavy" requiring a top that is a size or two larger than the pants they wear. There are also women who are wider/fuller through the hips and tiny up top, requiring bottoms that are a size or two larger than the top. It would also be nice if, in addition to long pants bottoms and short sleeve tops, to add shorts and long sleeves that way we can have options. I am really sad and sorry that I have to return these and have to continue with my men's PJ's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 "Dawn" in this PJ set is absolutely beautiful
I bought my usual size, "small." The cuffed and tailored pants were a tad too long for my five foot, four and half inch, 125 pound frame. Sadly, by the time I got my order, "x small" had already sold out. I returned the PJ's as I noticed other reviewers stated they found the material didn't shrink upon washing.
Like others have noted, the material is crisp and beautiful. I didn't notice any bothersome rustling when I walked around in them, though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CBmemd Need long sleeves!
Please offer these nice looking PJs with a LONG-SLEEVED top. When it is cold enough to want long bottoms, then you need a long-sleeved top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OnlineTchr Love this Pajama Set
I bought the colorful striped set of these pajamas when they were on sale, then came back for the blue geometric print (which I like even better, so pretty!). They are very comfortable. I am almost 5'8" and weigh about 160, and the large is perfect for me. I appreciate the length because most pajamas are too short and I do not like them up around my ankles. I put them in the laundry in a cold cycle but hung them to dry--did not want to take a risk of them shrinking, and they did not. I would say these will be perfect right through the fall, and as someone else said, I hope they come out with a long-sleeved version for winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovinglife1 Best PJ's I have ever owned
Yes, they are "crisp" cotton and make a slight crinkle noise...but they are so comfortable! They don't ride up or bunch up while you are sleeping. They wash up perfectly..I hang up my clothes, so I don't know how they hold up in the dryer. They did not shrink when I washed them in cold water. I would like to see these with shorts for the summer and long sleeves for the winter. These are made very well and I am sure they will last a long time. I can see myself wearing these in the winter months as well. Sizing seems to be right on..I would say order your normal LL bean size. Another great product from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chefdecuisine Great Pyjamas!
These pyjamas are great! They fit generously. I am 5'5" tall and usually buy petite pants. Even before washing, these pants are a good length for me. They come just to the floor without touching it. After washing, the pyjamas have come out of the dryer nicely unwrinkled. Just be careful if you wash them with your other darks; the nice white piping might absorb colours from your other clothes. I do not see any sign of colour running from these pyjamas, though.

These would be perfect if it were a shorts set rather than full length pants. The top has short sleeves so why not have the "bottoms" be shorts?

I just loved these pajamas. They were crisp yet soft and I was not a wrinkled mess when I woke up. They were just a little long, for my 5'1" height, but I did have them altered .

These are so cute but the pants were way too long and there was an overall boxy fit. I'm 5'5" and curvy.
