Every Christmas Eve, the kids open their first present - a new pair of summer pyjamas. They wear them that night and on Christmas day until breakfast time.
This year I am having a lot of trouble finding some nice pyjamas for DD12.

I just want some that are

Not pink, purple or pastel
Not licensed
Not so short her cheeks almost hang out
Not skulls, BFF, or 'sexy'!

Please help!

I got a nice pale blue pair from big w. Shorts (not short shorts) and a singlet top. Shorts have white polka dots.

I mostly wear boy's or men's pyjamas, as I prefer the plainer patterns and styles.  Would she be OK with that?

Kmart usually have some nice options, depending on your budget Peter Alexander always have some great choices.

Sussan has nice sleepwear, my teen DD's both love to get pj's from there, although they are pretty feminine.

I would pop into Sussan. Lots of pretty things there and maybe your DD would fit into a little size???

Kmart had some nightgowns that were nice and neutral - there was a yellow one with a owl on it, one that was hot pink with butterflies, and another one. Pretty sure they had pjs as well, I was only really looking for the nightgowns.

We are massive fans of Snugglebum nightwear here. Can be a little bit exxy but excellent quality. They will definitely last both my girls.

Wow! Thanks everyone. I didn't expect so many responses. I never thought of Sussan or Peter Alexander so thanks very much for those suggestions.
I've tried Big W and Kmart and Best and Less. Unfortunately she really doesn't like to wear nighties. I actually found some nice ones!
I'm not game to order online at this late stage but I will certainly keep that in mind for next time.
I could try the boys section too. She seems to prefer blues and blacks. I didn't consider they would have anything without skulls or skateboards lol!
Does anyone know if a girls size 12 is close enough to a women's size 8? I'm way bigger than that so haven't got a clue!
Thanks everyone
Tess

Also Coles has a sleepware range in their Mix line, with some nice simple pieces.

There are some simple cute sets in Target ATM - I got red with white dots today. Would a set 8/10 in women's be ok for her?

Do you have a Trade Secret near you? I find they tend to have some nicer things, and the quality is beter than Target. I find their elastic gives up after a few wears.

If your not sure about sizing maybe pop into target and take a size 12 pair of PJ's over to the women's and measure it against a size 8.

They seem to fit what you are looking for.

I also got the black slippers to match as they felt really nice.

Too bad DH stayed outside the shop and is still whinging he can not find anything to buy me, I must be really bad at dropping hints. rolleyes.gif
