My pajama style over the years has been a journey, to say the least. I went from cutting the feet off of my footie pajamas as a child because I "felt trapped," to owning an expansive collection of plaid, colorful, and otherwise printed pajama pants, to sleeping in whatever T-shirt of my fiancé's I stumble upon each night.
It wasn't until my bachelorette party this summer (is it clear that I'm engaged?) that I had a PJ epiphany after seeing one of my friends in the cutest matching set. I looked down at my hole-y grad school tee and boxer shorts and decided, then and there, that my sleepwear needed a major upgrade. The moment I got home, I ordered my first pair of Eberjey pajamas (and browsed the brand new bridal suite on its site) and have been in love ever since. It only made sense that a few months later, I decided to give my favorite girls matching sets of their own to thank them for being my bridesmaids.

Just like me, each of my 10 (yes, 10) bridesmaids will have her own Gisele Relaxed Short PJ Set. While mine is, of course, white, a few of my friends will don sorbet pink and the rest will go home with black sets (complete with pink piping). The set is available on Amazon in 16 colors and prints, and Prime members can even take advantage of the 'try before you buy' feature. If you're a department store devotee, two of the most popular colorways are also at Nordstrom, and there are 10 options on Eberjey's site (this is the best choice if you're searching for limited-edition colors). Aside from the best-selling Gisele set, which happens to be my favorite, Eberjey sells tons of other luxe PJs and loungewear pieces in various styles, cuts, and lengths.

No matter where you decide to buy them, these Eberjey pajamas are incredibly soft and beautiful. Made of a sustainable modal and spandex fabric blend, the machine-washable PJs keep me cool and comfortable as I sleep, and they feel buttery smooth against my skin. I like that the top has a structured look, thanks to the buttons and collar, but it's not thick or heavy-feeling. Plus, the elastic waistband on the shorts and the touch of spandex in the fabric give the entire set a relaxed fit that's optimal for sleeping.
If it's finally time to invest in your own adult pajamas (or if you're searching for the perfect gift), order a set of Eberjey's Gisele Short PJs and indulge a little.
