You may have heard your friends talking about Eberjey pajamas in the past, but what’s all the fuss about?
Well, quite simply, Eberjey pajamas are some of the finest loungewear sets on the market today. They're more luxurious than the pajamas you might be used to and we think they’re worth every penny.
Designed with softness and joy in mind, you can’t go far wrong with having a set of these in your drawers. Here, we guide you through everything there is to know about these gorgeous pajamas and why we’re so in love with them.
From handwashing to sustainability, you’ll find everything you need to know on this page. Slip on a pair of your favourite Eberjey Gisele pajamas and let’s begin.
Where did it all begin for Eberjey pajamas?
Founded in 1996 by Ali Mejia and Mariela Rovito, Eberjey has been on a mission to bring softness and beauty into the world – with a splash of sustainability and joy for good measure.
Meaning ‘joy’ in Nigerian, Eberjey is a symbol for authenticity and luxury to women on both sides of the Atlantic having been launched in Miami.
In an era of the Spice Girls and party anthems, it seemed there was no scope for a woman to feel beautiful in her own skin. Push-up bras ruled the world, and comfort and luxury seemed an alien concept – until Eberjey arrived on the scene.
Beginning with bralettes, Eberjey soon went on to launch the pajamas that we know and love today. Eberjey believed that the layer closest to the skin should bring happiness, love, and confidence – so that’s what they set out to bring to the world.
Why Eberjey is the brand you’ve been missing from your life
In the case of Eberjey pajamas, you really get what you pay for. Quality is a rare find in the era of fast fashion, but Eberjey have never sacrificed quality for price.
For an item that will last a lot longer than your typical pajamas bought from a regular retailer, it’s worth considering the long-term value. They will appear good as new from every wash, partly down to the careful washing recommended.
But it’s more than that. Here is a product that boosts self-esteem, brings joy to your duvet days, and compliments the lie-ins we so rarely get these days.
It’s a guilt-free item, too. With sustainability one of the driving factors in design, the Tencel Modal fabric means you can wear time and again without wondering by who or how these sets were produced.
Pajamas that are more than something to sleep in
In an age where the human population is spending more time at home than out at work or socialising, loungewear has become more than something to sleep in.
In fact, 45% of UK adults have enjoyed not having the pressure to socialise during lockdown, turning instead to nights in and relaxing in pajamas.
In the 21st Century, pajamas are a staple of the wardrobe that make you feel good. It’s a comfort blanket as well as a fashion statement.
Eberjey have known this since the very beginning in 1996 and have been leading the way with luxury pajamas to boost your self-esteem on the days you really need it.
Eberjey pajamas sizing
As the reviews show, Eberjey pajamas fit true to size and are a delight to wear.
However, one common theme is that the bottoms do come up just a touch short so it’s often wise to go up a size if buying Eberjey petite pajamas.
Do Eberjey pajamas run large?
Typically, the pajamas in this range run true to size. However, in the petite range’s reviews have often advised going up a size for cropped shorts for extra length.
Tailored fit Gisele pajamas hug the figure, so consider the fit you would like to experience before buying.
What are Eberjey pajamas made of?
As part of their drive for sustainability, Eberjey loungewear is made from specialist TENCEL Modal fabric. This fabric is:
- Made from sustainable Beech wood
- Spun into yarn
- Made into fabric
- Finally converted into the softest PJs Eberjey has to offer.
Tencel has many qualities, including being soft, breathable, lightweight, and comfortable. It will last a long time, resist shrinkage after the first wash, and is entirely natural.
The beauty of Tencel, aside from its quality, is its sustainability credentials. Tencel is made from the natural cellulose found in wood pulp. Tencel is fully biodegradable and is economical in its use of energy and natural resources.
How to wash Eberjey pajamas
These PJs are strictly hand wash only, due to the delicate nature of the fabric.
To hand-wash your Eberjey pajamas, you should:
- Hand wash in cold water
- Add a gentle detergent
- Tencel will shrink by around 3% with the first wash but will resist shrinkage from then on
- Once clean, drip dry the garment to avoid further shrinkage in a tumble dryer
Although handwashing may seem like a bother, you’d be surprised at how easy the pajamas are to maintain. Tencel garments are easy to pack and are wrinkle-resistant. Even once you have hand-washed them, they’ll dry quickly without the use of a tumble dryer.
Can you machine wash Eberjey pajamas?
The price of sustainability is the inability to use a washing machine, which in our opinion is a small cost for the quality of the pajamas and minimal damage to the planet.
Some outlets will advise that you can machine wash on a gentle cycle, but to protect the luxurious nature of the garment we advise against machine washing. Always check the label.
Our favourite Eberjey sets
So, you know how to wash them, you know about the sizing, and you know the origins. But where to begin in your search for luxury?
Long and short sets, cropped or slim, Caroline Randell Lingerie Boutique has it all to offer. Here are some of our favourite sets.
Gisele Short PJ Set
Eberjey Gisele pajamas are a staple of the Eberjey collection and some of the most popular too.
The best-selling range of Gisele pajamas are made from the super sustainable Modal fabric, which just adds to the silky-smooth feel of the garment. Iconic and classic, you can’t go wrong with the short PJ set.
Eberjey Gisele short pajamas have a tailored fit, designed to hug your figure and flatter. The short design makes this set an instant go-to in the warmer summer months, holidays or no holidays.
In terms of sizing, this set comes up fairly generous.
Gisele Short Sleeve Cropped Pants PJ Set
Similar to the short PJ set, this Eberjey cropped pajama set is made from the eco-friendly Modal fabric.
With its tailored fit and silk-like fabric swinging against your ankles, the cropped option is perfect for cool spring nights. We love the durability, too – the long-lasting nature of the Tencel Modal fabric means the cropped set will be as good as new wash after wash.
Bridging the gap between long PJ sets for the winter and shorter sets for the summer, we think this set is versatile and comfortable – putting the ‘lounge’ in loungewear. Luxurious is in its nature.
Gisele Tuxedo Slim PJ Set
One for the winter, the Gisele Tuxedo slim PJ set hugs your body like a comfort blanket but hangs off your figure just enough for you to lounge around in freedom.
As with the other styles of Gisele pajamas, this tailored set is made from the Modal fabric that sets Eberjey pajamas apart from other luxury brands.
For sizing, bear in mind the figure-hugging nature of the fit and select appropriately. A Small will come up as a UK10, a Medium is a 10, and a Large is a 14.
