In the winter time or on rainy days when snow flakes or rain drops are coming down on the window, have you had one of those days when all you feel like doing is to stay home all day wearing comfy pajamas and warm slippers? Pajamas always remind us of home and relaxation, and that’s why upscale day spas and hotels offer nice pajamas as a way for guests to relax and take away stress (by the way, one can almost tell the quality of day spas and hotels from the pajamas they offer, and whether or not they offer them at all). For the holiday seasons, PJ set is one of the sweetest gifts you could get for people you care about. I love pajamas, however, as a petite girl, I was having difficulty finding the right pajamas. As for any of my clothing, I want my petite pajamas to have the right sleeve length and inseam. I went to Macy’s, as much as I loved their door buster special PJ set, I could not bring them home as even the xs is too long and big for me.
Standard pajamas follow the general sizing chart, so the inseam is 29 to 30 inches. If you are petite, unless you have exceptionally long legs, the general size will not fit you well. Ideally, petite pajamas should have inseam of 26 to 28 inches, and sleeve length should be proportionally shorter than regular length too.
Here I have gathered where to shop for petite pajamas.
Lauren for women was launched in 1996, offering sophisticated sportswear, denim, dresses, activewear, and a wide array of accessories and footwear at a more accessible price point. Lauren Petite has many adorable and high quality petite pajamas.
Miss Elaine was founded in 1926. Even though they are not as widely known as the global designers of full line apparel, they are one of the most recognized brands of quality sleepwear, robes and lounge wear for women. They offer some moderately priced yet good design of petite pajamas.
