If I have guests (or if I am a guest!) I add a robe or over sized hooded sweatshirt for breakfast/lounging.

Also, for anyone who has had shrinkage with Victoria Secret pj’s, were they placed in the dryer? I just bought and washed my first pair however hung to dry to avoid them shrinking…I sure hope they didn’t shrink…I’m in love with them…wore them 3 nights in a row, loved them that much.

I’m a BIG fan of men’s pjs as they seem to be better made than women’s pjs. In fact I have lots of pairs, and I don’t have any women’s pjs at all. They also are roomy – I hate tight nightwear, not comfy at all. My fav pjs are black and white bold stripy men’s pjs, size S but really quite baggy on me. Cool to relax in and comfy to sleep in. If the legs or arms are too long, it isn’t hard to sew them back. Most cotton pjs are so lightweight you hardly know the difference.

(TMI, but talking of men’s pjs is ironic as my man always sleeps totally as Mother Nature intended, and as his Wife prefers! LOL)

Fortunately, it’s usually things I’ve set aside as “house clothes”. Whenever I get back from class or anything, I usually immediately change into comfortable clothing. If it’s not immediately, it’d be a gradual change.

I usually just wear a cheap t shirt on top. Remember, you can always wear a sports bra!

I’ve recently come to the same conclusions–still searching for the perfect pair of preppy, classic PJs but I agree Target has some great options!

I just got back from an out-of-state stay at my parent’s house, and my dressing gown was perfect for breakfasting and conversing before showering and getting dressed for the day.

When I’m around my own house, my dressing gown is also perfect for dealing with my toddler before he and I get dressed. We enjoy lazy mornings, and we generally get dressed around 10A, or even as late at 1P, if we’re not going outside at all that day. I sleep in my underwear, which my husband loves, and my dressing gown is the perfect in-between.

What does it look like? Well, I think it was made in the 50s or 60s. It’s greenish-blue, and it has two layers: the under layer is a light flannel cotton that clings to my skin in just the right places and ends in a large ruffle that sweeps the floor. I sewed the ruffle on myself after I bought my dressing gown because I wanted it to be longer. I love the grace and the weight it gives the gown.

The second layer is a wispy, flighty, opaque cloth. It drapes over the clingy layer to make me more modest, but still feminine. Because of this layer, it makes the clingy layer look more suggestive, more abstract, than in your face. It also ends the half sleeves in a ruffle, and also gives a ruffle between the bust line and the neck line. It is the only layer from above that neck ruffle, so it makes the neck and shoulders.

I love the little details my dressing gown has, too. The wispy layer tears easily, especially considering how old the garment is, so I’ve mended some of the tears with radically different thread. I think it gives it a Sally-doll from Nightmare Before Christmas look. Other rips I leave because I like their location, like the slit on the side that goes up.

The pajamas are from Brooks Brothers men’s department, which Browning insists makes “the best pajamas for grown women.”

Saw them just the other day actually AND they had a summery short-sleeve style…sigh…is it bad that I run my daughter outside to her preschool bus in them? LOL…

I love mens pj’s and cute nightshirts, its all about comfort. I could live in pj’s. Literally.

I wish I could be one of the women who wear cute little outfits to bed, but I truly hate the feeling of my thighs touching, so I have to wear pants! My husband hates my pjs (calls them “no sex pants” because nothing says sexy like plaid drawstring pants!) and I am always looking for cute and comfy options. For guests or when I am a guest I throw on a sweatshirt or bra before heading into the kitchen, and often sleep in yoga pants. Sadly, my robe is strictly for post shower, pre clothes wearing. Any good resources for cute robes to wear over pjs?

Unfortunately they’re from Victoria Secret, but fortunately they’re cute and comfortable. Mine are cotton, pink stripes.

I am HOOKED on the Nick and Nora brand at Target. I get myself and all the other girls in the family new flannel sets for Christmas, and now a cotton set for spring. The prints are cute, the fabric soft, modest in cut. I never worry that they don’t offer enough coverage. LOVE them!!!Plus, only cost round $25. The flannel gets softer the more they are washed!!!

If I need to cover up a bit for wandering around the house, I throw a light weight poncho over it in warm weater or a zip up hoodie in cooler weather. Pretty functional and modest but comfy and still a bit girly.

I love men’s style PJs, but as an XS, men’s sizes just don’t fit. I have found men’s style PJs online at Victoria Secret, though! All cotton and very comfortable. I might buy a size up, though, next time since they do shrink.

I was just planning on writing a post on this topic for my own fashion and lifestyle blog, She She Shoppers (www.shesheshoppers.com). Tired of the dilemma of what to sleep in when hosting guests or being a guest! Great tips. Thanks for sharing.
