I have been Googling, but cannot find a set for my mom for Christmas online. She is 86 and still very active, and I am looking for something that doesn't look like pajamas and are a step above "Fruit of the Loom" sweats, but that she can can wear to bed and well into the morning if she chooses without feeling frumpy. She is 5'1" and a size 12. I am willing to pay up to $100, so if anyone has any ideas or can direct me to a website, that would be great. (No zippers please.)

Thanks in advance!

Not sure what she is comfortable in but here are a few places I'd look: Athleta, Uniqlo, Gap, Old Navy, Lou and Grey and event Target.

I'll link to a few things I have that may work.

Well-fitting joggers are great
Fleece hoodie
Waterfall Cardigan - this is my favorite, it looks like a real sweater :P
Sweatshirt dress - I have last year's version

I'd recommend scanning the athletic wear departments at Old Navy and Target, there is cute stuff in there. Also, if you have a larger Gap, with a big body department, that can be a winner.

Also this collection from Gap is really cozy!

I'd go with VermontCountryStore.com

I buy a lot of sleepwear from them and they do cater to older women, so surely you'd find something. Most items are well made. I love flannels, they have a big
inventory of that and sleepwear in general. PJs but also gown, robes, gown/robe sets...winter and summer fabrics.

Good luck!
