I have seen a few references to PJs here recently and it has sparked my interest...

How many of you wear PJs? Do you wear bedsocks? Is it a seasonal thing?

I don't and have not since I was in my early teens. I find any clothing in bed stuffy. Although sometimes in the middle of winter i'll wear a singlet to bed. DP wears bedsocks and I find that super weird but he says his feet get too cold otherwise lol

No, unless we're staying at someone's house.

Yes, I love PJ's. And I love nothing more than bumming around the house in my PJ's on a cold and rainy lazy day. Tounge1.gif DP sprang and bought me some Peter Alexander PJ's for Xmas. I'm too scared to wear them at the moment, as they're so delicate and I don't want to wreck them!

I don't wear socks to bed though. I couldn't sleep if I did. My feet need to breathe!

I don't feel comfortable unless I have pj pants on. I don't own pyjama "sets", just the pants, which I wear with a t-shirt. Makes it easier when getting up in the night to kids too. DH sleeps in his underwear in summer, pj pants with no shirt in winter.

As for socks, I wear them TO bed when it's super cold, but kick them off before going to sleep because they annoy me Tounge1.gif

ninja.gif Um, what are bedsocks? (Well... other than socks you were to bed!)

I don't wear pajamas, I usually just wear some of what I wore during the day. My MIL thinks this is a terrible thing to do. I do the same with DS and MIL has gone on a pyjama buying spree for him.

Yes, I do - I love my pyjamas!  If it's really hot, I'll wear just undies and a singlet.  
DH only wears undies, even in winter, while i go the whole hog and wear flannies and thick bed socks.

I used to sleep naked but when I was breastfeeding I had to wear breast pads or feeding singlets as I leaked everywhere, so I have gotten used to wearing underpants and a singlet to bed. I too can't handle much more than that unless it is a really cold night. It is good timing though as my step son is now a little older so I am more comfortable wearing something if he walks in the room.

Mind you I will be up in the night feeding throughout this whole winter so I will probably wear PJ's this time round.

My husband is varied from naked to underpants to boxer shorts to a t-shirt to pyjama pants. It's anybody's guess as to what he chooses to wear each night.

Sometimes we do, sometimes we don't.

Though where we live no, it gets very cold in winter (night coolness is already starting to come ) so going to bed naked would be mad, especially if I had to get up to the kids.

We also do hot water bottles in winter. And socks too.

In summer, I do wear just a singlet, cos I find my upper body gets sweaty, which I don;t like.

Yes I wear PJ's everynight and I live in the tropics.

I love PJ's and nice soft cotton nighties original.gif

Not PJs as such, but I have taken to wearing chemises since I had babies. I love how they look and feel, if they are the right fabric they are very comfy to sleep in.

ETA: like this kind of thing

Yep - i get cold otherwise, and yes even in the middle of summer when it's 27 degrees outside & humid!

Winter i freeze, so will always wear socks to bed.

i love pjs! in summer, i alternate between a nightie cotton one and a more slinky number wink.gif

in winter i wear flanalette (sp?) sets, with bed socks and velvety dressing gown with a hood! its one of the reasons i love winter biggrin.gif

(dh hates the winter pjs though, they arent very sexy...)

I always wear clothing, not necessarily pj's. It depends on the weather. At the moment I am wearing summer pj's of shorts and a t-shirt.

#14 Klinkalink

Posted 23 February 2012 - 09:33 AM

Not PJs, but I generally wear 'bed shorts' and a T-shirt to bed. Bed shorts, which I have several pairs of, are old and super-comfy T-shirt material shorts of the kind that would be offensive to society to wear out of the house.
Regardless of how cold it is, I can't wear socks to bed, it just makes my feet feel hot and 'icky'.

I usually wear flannel pj pants and a singlet.
If it's extremely hot (35+) I won't wear the pants, but I always always have to be covered by at least a sheet. Can't sleep without some sort of blanket/sheet.
In winter I'll wear a long sleeved shirt or hoody, pj pants, socks, electric blanket.
And DH just wears boxers, regardless of the weather.

DH and I both usually sleep in the nick. I had to go and buy pjs for my wedding as I was staying at a friend's place the night before and bought some lighter ones to wear in hospital when DS was born.

Most of the time I don't bother putting anything on when I get up to feed DS, but as it gets colder I might get a nice dressing gown to slip on so my back doesn't get cold.

I usually just wear a pair of boxers to bed, and that's about it. Even if it's freezing cold, I don't bother. If I get up, I'll throw on a dressing gown if it's cold. Wearing socks to bed annoys my feet.

Kids both have extensive PJ collections and wear them regularly.

I wear undies and a t-shirt.

If I wear pyjamas I somehow get all tangled in them!

haha I know this feeling! The few times I have worn some sort of PJs (hotel, family's place etc) I have found myself with arms through the button holes or top pulled up around my head or some other crazy thing lol. If I wear a top with straps I ALWAYS end up with it twisted around and very tight lol  rolleyes.gif

I have to add here that we DO live pretty rural and have no neighbours...I imagine there is always the chance in built-up areas of being caught in the nude in a headlight if you leave a curtain open  wink.gif

Posted 23 February 2012 - 09:48 AM

No.  If I have to get up to the kids then I just chuck on a tshirt.  DH is the same.

When I had to go to hospital for a hysterectomy we stopped at Kmart to buy some nighties on our way to the hospital.  biggrin.gif

We just wear around the house clothes to bed, like a t-shirt and tracksuit pants. They are much warmer than PJ's and don't cost as much.

#22 Isolabella

DH and I are nudie sleepers.

I will occasionally wear socks to bed (I can't get to sleep if my feet are too hot or too cold - I tend to have ice bricks for feet).

I do have PJs though.... for wearing around the house after getting up.

When we are staying with someone or have someone over to stay (they sleep in DD's room with DD) I put on an old BF Cami and undies to go to bed (in case of having to get up to DD).

ETA: I find sleeping naked warmer then PJs even in winter (Melb or Switzerland)

I don't have pyjamas (or 'PJs' for that matter)
I have a few sets of actual clothes that I can wear to bed.
certainly good for 2am dashes to PMH or other emergency
dealing with vomit etc

Posted 23 February 2012 - 12:02 PM

Yes, but only to sloth around the house in. I hate sleeping in anything more than undies as it gets all tangled up and uncomfortable, even in winter.

But I love slothing around the house in PJs of a night time biggrin.gif

Knickers most of the time, but if I'm fresh from an evening shower, I'll go nude.

Singlet if it's a little cool, but I'll use blankets for warmth more often.

I do love my jammies in winter, but being in Mackay I don't think I'll have much use for them any more.  One of DH's tshirts will probably do me.
