Our Lake Pajamas review made us realize we had lived too long without them. They're really that good—especially with their built-in kimono-style belt.

I am a sucker for the best pajamas. As a seasoned shopping editor working from home, soft pajamas aren’t just for the evening—they’re leisurewear for the morning until the last few minutes before my computer is opened and the kids are off to school. I already have my favorites—the Cozy Earth Bamboo pajamas being one of them—but when Jennifer Garner said these flattering Lake Pajamas were absolutely “perfect,” I knew I had to give them a try.

TL;DR: You need these if you like a flattering cut and temperature-regulating material. OMG, you really, really do.

What are Lake Pajamas?

Soft, cool pajamas from Lake are known for 100% Peruvian cotton and bamboo viscose construction. Body temperature regulating material displayed in timeless, chic silhouettes has earned the brand bestselling status. Celebs and in-the-know types can’t seem to get enough of Lake Pajamas—and for good reason.

Lake has a broad collection of styles for the whole family ranging from women’s gowns to men’s pajamas and even matching family Christmas pajamas in whimsical prints and seasonal colors. Customers rave about the expanded size range in the brand’s most popular women’s styles, honoring bodies in sizes XXS through XXL. Just about everything in the lineup feels like a luxurious dream and lives up to the low-maintenance hype thanks to easy machine washing and pill-free wear.

My Lake Pajamas review

I chose the flattering wrap-style Lake kimono pajamas because I love the subtle waist cinching in a totally comfortable, cozy format. Lake Pajamas offer a sewn-on belt that promises wiggle-free sleeping—something that sets the brand apart from competitors and bathrobe-style pieces. And since it’s sewn on, the belt never gets lost in the laundry or falls to the bottom of your closet. It’s genius, and easily one of my favorite features.

These romantic sleep duds boast a cool-to-the-touch feel that is entirely machine washable and low maintenance, unlike more delicate silk pajamas. That’s one of the best reasons to grab a pair (or two) for yourself. High-end flattering fits, trendy design and soft, cooling material without all the fuss of dry clean-only materials promise the best sleep ever.

I find my kimono-style Lake Pajamas as easy to care for as the cheap flannel pajamas I resort to on the absolute coldest nights. The biggest difference is just how elegant they look on, though. They’re a major neighborhood upgrade when I meander to the end of the driveway on lazy mornings.

Pros:

  • Ultra soft, cozy material
  • Available in multiple colors
  • Flattering prints
  • Sewn-on wrap closure
  • Machine washable
  • Sizes XXS through XXL
  • Loads of celebrity fans

Cons:

  • Somewhat expensive compared to other brands, but worth every penny
  • Very limited selection of plus sizes, which only go up to about 18

Final verdict

If ultra-soft, sophisticated PJs are high on your list of sleep priorities, you need a pair of Lake Pajamas. I love the effortlessly preppy style the kimono silhouette offers, flattering vertical stripes and cooling modal blend material. These pajamas also make brilliant, unique gifts for women of most styles and sizes.

Where to buy Lake Pajamas

The only place to buy Lake Pajamas is the brand’s website, where the majority of styles range between $84 and $150. Hurry up though, because some styles and colors are only offered in limited runs. The brand is so popular that your favorites could sell out.
