Homebody pjs... worth the extortionate cost?!

Read an article in last weekend’s Times raving about these Pjs and how they improved sleep.

They do look beautiful but so pricey.

Any one purchase before?

My DP showed me this piece last night. He's really keen on them but a bit alarmed by the price.

Hadn't seen the article so clicked on the link thinking they looked lovely but for me no way at that price !
I love a bit of bedroom luxury but I couldn't justify that and would have laundry angst .
Will be interested to hear from existing owners though !

Oh my goodness!!! So expensive!
And they’re modal (which IME washes terribly). Maybe they’re a ‘special’ modal?? Would want to be fairly special at that price. Maybe it’s woven by pixies. At dawn. Or unicorns. They’re all the rage wink

I hope someone comes along to tell us wtf is so special about modal pjs.

They look ok but nothing special. Certainly nothing that would make me pay that price.

The waistband on the harems looks very comfy.

You can get pjs like that in lots of shops including Primark. Not worth the cost at all.

They are made in England so cost is higher. But still the prices are outrageous.

Gap to very similar to all of that for a fraction of the cost!

I got them as a present. They were not better than a pair of cotton-modal ones I got from Matalan for peanuts. Also, the ones I have are so wide neck that they feel quite cold.

£90 for modal shorts? I don't bloody think so! They could at least make them from cotton.

Modal is a cheap looking synthetic surely?

Do you have a link to the times article? I’d love to read it.
I love pyjamas and think these are gorgeous.

Initially I was a bit frustrated with the responses!

But I took them on board, shopped around and I have just purchased some lovely looking pjs that contain modal in the Gap sale. So thank you!

Sorry, can’t link. It was in the paper

Why frustrated with the responses?Everyone said the truth it's cheap fibres sold at extortionate prices. The only good thing is the items are made in the UK.

Having done my time in papers/magazines you have to be aware that many articles are thinly veiled advertorials. Were you expecting us to rave about them and we didn't?
Like Zara said only good thing is that they are made in the UK. I found the style given to me too wide around my chest and I was cold during the night. I prefer and higher neckline.

Modal is not a cheap synthetic, it’s a really lovely fabric that’s quite expensive to produce. It’s beautifully soft and warm at the same time - and strong! I have lovely pj’s from M and S with a high modal content. Camisoles, jersey dresses - I actively SEARCH for modal when I need to buy something.

It keeps a smooth pan to the fabric unlike brushed cotton which wears after a while.

My dream is to have a whole wardrobe of only cashmere and modal items grin

The look lovely but over £200 for set is madness (for me). Gap and M&S do modal PJs for a fraction of the price.

If I wanted beautiful luxe nightwear I'd be heading to Liberty for some of their silk or cotton print sleepwear. Modal isn't a luxurious fabric.

They look like 20 year old pj's that have shrunk And misshapen in the wash !! And sooo grey ! I'm out !

goose1964 Tue 30-Jan-18 22:43:37

That's near enough a year's worth of clothing

Fosterdog123 Wed 31-Jan-18 05:50:35

Jakeross - You're see through as a pane of glass! Such a blatant advert! You obviously work for or own the company!

Just looked at the website - quite clearly these PJs are not made for a cold house in the country! Wide necks and short sleeves - I don't think so!!!
