Rated 5 out of 5 by digby Soft, comfy, loose-fitting cotton sleepwear!
I received these pajamas for a Christmas present, and I have to say I've enjoyed wearing them! I'm a fit but curvy girl, and the loose cut of both the top and bottoms keeps either piece from binding or feeling tight. I'm 5'5" and the bottoms just barely miss grazing the floor--perfect for me, as where I live we have cold winters. The only drawback I see is they are a little pricey. Even still, I'm planning to buy at least one more set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FWB1 Love these pj's!
Soft, comfortable, roomy and cozy! Thanks for recommending ordering a size down. I am 5'4" and 125 lbs. The small is perfect. About to order in another color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kihew great fabric and colour but WAY oversized
This last order was my third time buying similar pjs from GAIM, which I have always loved and worn till completely holy (about 2-3 years of constant wear). After two times of wearing out the lovely light cream version, I decided to go with amaranth this time because the cream version does discolour around the colar with continued use, and I don't want to use bleach (and haven't found eco alternatives that really work#. When my latest pj order arrived, I was pleased with the rich amaranth colour and the soft organic cotton which I've come to expect from Gaiam, but was disappointed by the grossly over-sized cut. Despite washing on the hot cycle and drying several times, the pjs didn't shrink that much, and I find that when I wear them I am always turning over the waist hem multiple times, and rolling up the sleeves, even though I am 5'7" #and about 135 lb#. As well, the buttons in the front begin so low #below my bra line# as to be a bit too revealing when I wear them around others. Its like the pjs were made for monster sizes! #I bought the amaranth panties in the same order and found them equally over-sized).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gigilee Most comfortable ever!
I absolutely adore these pajamas! In fact, over the years I have added to my collection and now I actually have five pair , some in better shape than others because they're the ones I've purchased more recently. I wear them summer and winter. I wear a size 12-14 in my favorite brands of clothing so I buy these pajamas in a size large for plenty of roominess. The only problem I've had is in having to tighten some of the button holes so the top will stay buttoned! They are a bit expensive so I am happy to catch them on sale when I want to buy a new pair. I wear the pastel colors in the summer and darker colors in the winter, no particular reason, the cotton is a perfect weight any time of the year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lynetteml Excellent but oversized
The material and construction are great - a flowy, comfy fabric in wonderful, rich colors. However, I'm 5'3" and a size 6-8, and I swim in the size small - but the length is fine, and since I like my PJs on the large side, I not only kept them, but ordered a second pair. It's probably a matter of personal preference - I noticed that another reviewer about my size did send them back. I wish that they came in XS. I'd estimate that "small" in these is a size 10-12.
