Are these five pyjama sets THE softest ever?

Searching for the comfiest pyjama sets around? So too was a Mumsnet user over on our style and beauty board, who recently asked fellow users "what are THE softest pyjamas?" As ever, the Mumsnet hive mind were quick to respond, sharing their most beloved pyjama sets that they find incredibly soft and comfortable.

So, if you too are looking for the softest pyjamas at the moment, you're in luck. We've taken the top five pyjama sets our MNers are loving right now that might just be the softest ever...

Taking the lead are these Cool Comfort™ cotton modal pyjamas from M&S that are apparently "so soft and comfortable."
