In search of some new pajama shorts, I recently tried Aldi’s Serra Ladies Knit Short.
These sold for $6.99 at the time of publication, and they came in several colors, including red, black, and gray. I opted for gray. These are a limited-time ALDI Find, which means they’re only in stores for a short while.
The shorts feature a drawstring waist with elastic waistband, 4-inch inseam, and front pockets. They’re made of 64% polyester, 33% rayon, and 3% Spandex.
The shorts are made in China and are certified OEKO-TEX and free from harmful levels of more than 300 substances.
Despite being sold in a cardboard sleeve, the packaging on the shorts I got states that all packaging should be placed in the trash, so apparently the cardboard sleeve contains elements that make it ineligible for recycling, which is unfortunate.
The shorts are machine washable with like colors and can be tumbled dry on low heat.
They seem to run fairly true to size. I normally wear a medium, and these shorts in a medium fit me fine. A size chart on the back of the shorts package indicates small is for sizes 4-6, medium is for sizes 8-10, large is for sizes 12-14, and extra large is for sizes 16-18.
These shorts are comfortable, too. When I bought them, several people told me how much they liked them, noting that they are very soft. They are indeed soft. They are similar to a sweatpant or sweatshirt material, with a fleecy soft inner lining.
They won’t win you any fashion awards, but these shorts seem to be just right for casual wear or for sleeping.
Aldi’s Serra Ladies Knit Short comes in several colors and seems to fit true to size. These are very soft and comfortable shorts, great for wearing around the house or for sleeping in, and they even have pockets. You also can’t beat the price.
