Have name-changed for this to spare my embarrassment.

As soon as I get home from work it's off with the work clothes and on with something loose and comfortable - old t-shirt and long hippy swirly skirt, usually. Shoes come off, Birkenstocks go on. I imagine it's not a look that's everyone's cup of tea, but only my DD and random door knockers will see me. If I'm expecting guests I dress in something appropriate.

Part of getting comfortable involves removal of bra (always) and, on warm days, knickers, too, and letting all my bits be unencumbered for a while. My sister thinks this is very weird of me and that I will 'regret it' - although she is unable to specify how!

AIBU to want to be comfortable in my own home? Incidentally, random door knockers would need to have x-ray eyes to be offended by my appearance. All my clothes are fully opaque.

of course you're not being unreasonable, it's your bloody house

it's not like you're wearing a gimp mask and opening the door with an orange in your mouth (that may scare the neighbours)

Well I'm modestly built in that department, so no worries about tripping over, or hitting self in eye.

<<...waits hopefully for someone to come along and tell me they 'relax' in similar fashion when they get home, so that I can feel normal.>>

I am so intrigued as to how you will come to regret this? It almost sounds like some ancient warning like "remove thine bra and the land will dry up and the crops will fail"

How exciting!

YANBU - sounds perfectly normal to me.

I do this too. I hate wearing bras longer than I need to

Shutupanddrive Mon 22-Aug-11 09:38:37

Of course YANBU, I'm often in my pj's at the same time as the dc's (about 7pm)

NorfolkBroad Mon 22-Aug-11 09:43:37

Be yourself and be relaxed, I totally agree with you. Is lovely to chill out! i would like a nudist really but my DP is horrified at the thought!

SwingingLoose Mon 22-Aug-11 09:43:54

I think, Catgirl, sister has images of me having accident/dying and ambulance drivers/undertakers discovering my not-very-dark secret. She is a prude.

I currently have the world's leakiest boobs due to bfing so a bra and pads is a must at all times to avoid flooding the house, but pre-dc I often went around the house with very little or nothing at all on. It backfired slightly when my DH's (then DP's) housemate saw me in the all together one day but I was smokin' hot back then so despite the embarrassment I also got a certain amount of satisfaction out of the incident.

Clothes are annoying and nudity is great. So say I.

catgirl1976 Mon 22-Aug-11 09:46:31

smile ah yes of course - the poor ambulance drivers! I bet they have never seen a ladies fanjo before smile

GilbonzoTheSecretPsych0Duck Mon 22-Aug-11 09:47:30

I celebrate days when I don't have to see people so I can 'let it all hang loose' grin. There is nothing worse than wearing a bra when it's stonkingly hot. Unfortunately I do have the trip-over-them variety of boobs but I've never seriously injured a child with a sudden turn so I can't see the problem.

Sofabitch Mon 22-Aug-11 09:48:20

Defiantly. And if I have no plans. I avoid getting dressed lmao. It's your house wear what you like behind closed doors.

ThePrincessRoyalFiggyrolls Mon 22-Aug-11 09:50:39

I quite often have a bath with at the same time as my children and have been known to waft around the house until midday (often longer) or from about 6.30 in my dressing gown with nowt underneath - incidentally I don't fully recommend this as I quite often forget to put the apron on when cooking hmm

pozzled Mon 22-Aug-11 09:50:54

grin at the poor ambulance drivers. The paramedics who transferred me to hospital when my home birth didn't happen survived, they didn't seem to be hugely traumatised!


youarekidding Mon 22-Aug-11 09:52:38

Well DS 7yo asked me the other day why you only have to wear bra's when you go out. grin So 'no' YADNBU.

I often take my knickers off too, I have the jersey type 3/4 tracksuit bottoms though so less air than you get. wink

ChippingIn Mon 22-Aug-11 09:56:03


Maybe your sister thinks you'll get droopy boobs with all that 'hanging loose'?

I'm currently in pants & t-shirt - only put those on as I opened the front door and wouldn't want to traumatise anyone too badly.

BadTasteFlump Mon 22-Aug-11 09:56:42

I love the 'you will regret it' remark grin. Did she say why exactly? Does it refer to boobs heading south without a bit of scaffolding?

Wear what you like in your own home I say. I love getting home at night and getting into my PJs - if anyone doesn't like it they don't have to look, do they!

HappyAsIAm Mon 22-Aug-11 09:57:19

On my working days, I get home at 5:30 and I get in the bath with my DS at about 6:30 every evening, and then I put my pyjamas on. Obviously no undies underneath! It feels so much better than being in proper clothes!

Morloth Mon 22-Aug-11 09:58:17

YANBU as soon as we are in for the day I am straight into PJs with no undies or bra.

Much more comfy.

I guess your sister is saying it is because your boobs might sag. I have whoppers GGs, they are gonna sag, I don't care because actually there is nothing wrong with having saggy boobs.

JodieHarsh Mon 22-Aug-11 09:59:19

You are joking? My DH and the near neighbours is lucky if I bother covering my glorious immense nakedness with so much as a T shirt grin

Most days I flounce around in a kimono and woe betide anyone within 10 paces if I make any sudden movements...

SwingingLoose Mon 22-Aug-11 10:01:39

Jodie, I thought you were meant to 'waft' in kimonos, not 'flounce'.

JodieHarsh Mon 22-Aug-11 10:04:04

'Waft'? With these thighs? confused grin

SwingingLoose Mon 22-Aug-11 10:04:38

grin at Jodie
