First things first, I am really happy to have been recently added to the Love Notions Promotion team- this means that I am compensated a nominal amount for the patterns I test, and I am now an affiliate and will receive a small percentage from pattern sales that result from clicks from here. I will always note affiliate links, and you can read more about the Love Notions affiliate program here. My reviews will continue to be completely honest, transparent, and hopefully helpful.
I have been telling myself for months that my comfy lounging wardrobe needs a refresh- I have a few pairs of pajamas that I change out seasonally, but all have basically been worn to death. It’s hard to prioritize lounging clothes when I only wear them for a short period each day. I work outside of the house (business casual), and go out a lot on the weekends (public casual), so loungewear, for me, is a small but important portion of my wardrobe. My requirements for loungewear are 1) decent level of bra-support without being overly constrictive (I do light exercise in the evenings and these were fine for planks, squats, and lunges) 2) lightweight pants or shorts because it gets mega-hot upstairs in my sewing room 3) not-terrible looking for when Church people come knocking on my door for unannounced visits. The Luna set hits all the right notes for me!

And now for the pictures! Overall the tank is fitted through the bust, then looser through the waist and hip; the shorts have a good amount of ease through the hips and thighs. I felt comfortable enough in this to walk through my neighborhood to get to the ravine to take pictures, and then slept in it that night. It’s a win for me!
