Hi

Im trying to make an effort to wear something nice and seductive in bed but everything i have is so skimpy and its soooo cold at the moment i cant wear any of it!

any ideas if what i can wear to show a bit of flesh but not freeze to death?

TIA

toasted I got some Toast pjs for my birthday last year and I agree they are SO warm and quite stylish too I thought

PJ Pan do some great brushed cotton nightshirts which could be a good option? Warm but still showing a bit of flesh!! Lots of nice pjs too but it sounds as if that's not what you're after..

The absolute warmest pj's I own were from Toast.
I don't really like their everyday stuff, but the nightwear and knitted accessories have been great.
Sadly I need more, and am unwilling to fork out Toast prices this winter.

I am wearing my pj bottoms as we speak, and they are like a very thick woolly kind of cotton that feels three times thicker than all of my other pj's.

And they're kind of three times longer on the leg, too!

Union suit with the access flaps in the back. What's not sexy about staying warm?

I had an idea. What about getting Primark to do an under the counter range of brushed cotton pjs printed with racy images?

OP = toasty
DP = titillated

Yes mama onion that's what I have been doing so far! Would b nice to have one outfit that serves both purposes tho but don't think it exists!

Can you put on something sexy when you get into bed, and then cover up later iyswim- you make an effort and you're warm!

Eliza switch off the predictive text then - computers only do what you ask them to.

Goodness I must be far too lazy, brushed cotton pj's come October for moi!

Tho DH sleeps v hot and we dont get to change the duvet or sheets at all during the year (that is they get washed but not less/more for hot/cold) so he cant have it both ways, thank goodness its never impacted our sex life!

Thanks for all the suggestions.
My dh has not said anything to me about what I wear. I just want to make an effort to look nice for him, is that so wrong? He's not dictating anything thanks Eliza .

I like that dress ooer.

I don't think a solution exists but I found a vest top set with satin 3/4 bottoms which I may consider. Can't link on the iPad.

Figured I will have to compromise somehow!

I also have a couple of pairs of their pjs.

They're not going to make me Play Bunny of the Month, but what the heck, they're toast and kinda timeless.

Slightly off topic. But does anyone know where to get flannel / brushed cotton nightshirt? Warm hopefully. I don't like things on my legs at night.

God.... I hate this iPad. Sorry, so many predictive mistakes, here.

Eliza22 Fri 05-Oct-12 09:40:30

Erm..... I probably ought not to say it, but I'm going to.

Your husband seems to have a great many things to say about what YOU should wear, to keep warm and comfortable, I bed. Now, I'm not suggesting that nice we've settled into the warm fuzzy p,ace that is, the committed relationship, we should go to bed in old t shirts and, holey socks and hair in curlers but honestly love, it's NOt a bloody fashion parade. I try to link nice in the day, for me, for those I'm around and of course, I love it when dh comes home and says "you look gorgeous today, sweetheart" but..... I don't want to be told what's sexy and not sexy in bed. I wear chemise type slips. I don't need socks cause my feet are like toast. I'm makeup free and hair brushed..... That's about it. I personally would never buy those long t shirt style nighties with cute animals on the front but, unless you WANT to have to get dressed up to be deemed "acceptable" to your dh in bed, I'd set him straight on a few things. Christ, he sounds like a "me, me, me" pain in the arse-type, to me.

The classic alternative is to get a pair of men's pyjamas (the old-fashioned need-to-iron type). It can be very sexy to cross-dress a bit and not show any flesh.

Bodas do some classic looks that can be really good on the right person. I have some and they are good quality; the stripy ones are slightly sheer.

If you want to channel Madame Butterfly, wear a nemaki (Japanese bed kimono) - it's soft cotton lined with gauze, incredibly soft and warm against your skin, plus somebody can unwrap you like a present.

DH gets the arse if I wear socks to bed. Don't let's live in bloody Scotland then, ya twonk!

Hush have some lovely things. Not sure if sexy..but very nice.

Oh lord - longsleeved cotton jersey nightshirt perhaps with lacy v-neck (used to have a white one from Knickerbox and have been hunting high and low for a replacement this kind of thing but not quite ...) and matching thigh-high stockings ... NB they were not tight at the thigh!

You can get long socks that might do the trick. like this Mind you, may have to recalibrate your other half's idea of what "sexy" is!

We have a mattress topper and that makes the bed nice and warm.

Euphemia Thu 04-Oct-12 17:31:20

I have a few M&S nighties which are black and made of jersey material - they're cosy for me and DH seems to like them. wink

Slightly sheer strappy thermal vest with a wrap cardi over the top and brushed cotton bottoms?

CountryBelle Thu 04-Oct-12 17:05:50

Primark fleecy pjs all the way all year round!! I wouldnt give up my cosiness for anyone!

Madmog Thu 04-Oct-12 14:49:25

I can't do without my cosy pjs. Lucky for me, my husband my hubby has some as well and takes the attitude he will get to what's underneath if he really wants!!
