Does P.J. Salvage Run Small?

P.J. Salvage products have mixed customer reviews, with some customers claiming they run small while others counteracted that these are too large for the tag.

The fabric is amazing, exactly what I hoped, plush, fluffy, cozy fleece, inside and out. The pants are perfect except for the sizing. I wear an 8/10, 10 if I want them loose and comfy. I bought XL because there were no reviews and sizing is often wrong on Amazon. Sadly, they fit barely, not loose, not for jogging or pajamas. Even worse, just like everyone else these days, the sizes run small and they do not make larger sizes.” – reviewer on Amazon

One of the reviewers stated that these PJs ran small so I ordered a size larger, expecting the flannel to shrink a little. Big mistake! They are at least two sizes too large and they don’t appear to have shrunk at all when laundered and dried in a hot dryer. After laundering, they are soft and very warm. The pair of pjs I received were marked as the size I ordered, so I can’t explain the size difference. I have another pair of P.J. Salvage pjs and they also run larger than some other labels, but they are sized the same as the P.J. Salvage flannel pjs.” – reviewer on Amazon
