Lanz of Salzburg Cardinal Flannel Pajamas
Odd fit and questionable quality
I ordered these for myself based on the great reviews. The flannel feels thick, but there is a problem with the fit. I am 5'6", average height, with a 35/36" bust. I weigh about 125 lbs. According to the size chart, I am a small. However, the arms and the legs of these pajamas are about 1 or 2 inches too short. My ankles and wrists are cold when I wear them around the house! Also, though the size chart says small will fit a 35-37 inch bust, I can hardly believe someone with a C cup or more would not have buttons popping because these are snug even around my 35/36" bust! I also noticed that after one wash in cold water, gentle cycle, low dry, the flannel looks like it is beginning to pill. Finally, one of the buttons came loose about 2 nights after I started wearing them. The flannel around where the button is sewn on actually has a hole. For the money, I expected better, and can only imagine that some factory owner in China (where these are made, despite the name "of Salzburg") saves a LOT of money by using an inch less fabric for the sleeves and legs of these pjs! I also notice the rave reviews here are mostly from people who bought these pjs as gifts for someone else to wear!

Nice, Warm Pajamas
I ordered these pajamas for my mother, who is a big fan of Vermont Country Store. She was very pleased with the warmth, comfort, pattern, and fit.

Best pajamas I ever had
The Cardinal Flannel Pajamas were bought as a gift for my mother, 93. I did not realize how difficult finding a pair of quality 100% COTTON pajamas would be when I started my search. She loved these! At first she didn't want to wear them - they were "too nice"! The fit/size was great and they "feel so good" is the report I get. The only worry I had was the drawstring instead of elastic all the way around, but that wasn't a problem either. Thank you!

Warm and Comfortable
I had been looking everywhere for traditional flannel pajamas, and what I found was a series of pants and not necessarily matching tops that had no resemblence to pajamas. Then I got a Vermont Country Store catalog and there they were - real pajamas! These pajamas are high quality, look attractive and are warm and comfortable. From now on it is Lanz pajamas for me.

My wife loves them!
I originally ordered a nightgown that was too small (hint to other husbands ... do this!) and so I had to reorder a different style and correct size. I asked her to pick one out this time! Well the one she choose became unavailable during processing the new order soooo ... she chose these pjs and just loves them! I called customer service to check on the re-reorder and Joe said he'd ship out the new order at no extra cost! Ya can't beat that! I do want to thank everyone at the Vermont Country Store for making what could have been a bad experience into an "I'll shop there again!" experience!

Lance of Salzburg makes delicious sleepwear! I ordered these Cardinal Flannel Pajamas and was thrilled with the design and comfort. There is no better flannel on the market! Soft and warm, these PJs fit beautifully with no binding. I would recommend Lanz pajamas to anyone!
