I'm a sucker for matching outfits. Call me corny, call me tacky, but I think it's cute and it shows family togetherness. Fortunately, I already have the perfect venue to indulge my matching-outfit -- I've got identical twins. So I sometimes get to dress 3Po and Jammy in identical, or at least matching outfits, but I try not to do it too often since they're individuals, after all, not TweedleDum and TweedleDee. Once, I even got to dress the whole family in matching Hawaiian outfits, and we actually went out to lunch dressed that way (it was Father's Day, so Alfie relented).
Looking back, I still think it looks cute, but I'll admit it might not look as cute in public when the kids are twelve and fifteen. But now I've found the perfect solution for me to indulge my taste for matching outfits without coming off as the Von Trapp family or Jon & Kate plus Eight -- wear matching pajamas at home! Online retailer Sleepyheads.com has a great selection of matching family pajamas. They generously sent me their Sleepyhead Lips White Shortsleeve Lounger Pajama to review, and here's what I thought of it:
Sleepyheads.com carries pajamas for the entire family in every style and size you can think of. They carry brands like Life is Good, Betsey Johnson, Bedhead and Jose by Natori, as well as their very own line of Sleepyheads brand pajamas. Among the wide variety of styles available are silk and satin nighties, cartoon-themed pajamas, holiday-themed pajamas, and family matching robes and sleepwear. As Sleepyheads puts it, Lounging around with the family has never been so much fun!
What can I say -- the Sleepyhead pajamas are great. The cotton material is soft and doesn't pill in the wash. It's going to last a long time! The lips pattern is cute and fun and flirty, just like all of their other patterns.
I also adore their family matching sets -- I've seen many other sites with family sets for the holidays, but Sleepyheads.com has family matching sets with everyday patterns, so we can have home movie nights or family pillow fights any day of the year! And I really like the fact that the matching sets aren't carbon copies of each other. Rather, they complement each other so that each family member can look like an individual but still match with the rest of the family. Alfie, look out -- we might be taking this year's holiday photo in matching pajamas!
There isn't any sizing information -- or if there is any, I couldn't find it, which is just as disappointing. Different brands fit differently, so it would have been nice to have some measurements to go with each size instead of picking a size and hoping for the best.
The Bottom Line
Sleepyheads.com sleepwear is adorable and affordable. It's a great way to show your family spirit during the holidays and any time of the year!
