So reading the bedding thread there seems to be the suggestion that some people don't wear pants at night. shock This is seriously a pearl clutching moment for me.

So AIBU to ask - doesn't everybody wear pants at night, whether or not they sleep otherwise naked or wear PJ's? And wouldn't your sheets or PJ's need more frequent washing if you don't wear pants at night?

I have always worn knickers at night

YABU to call them pants grin

And wouldn't your sheets or PJ's need more frequent washing if you don't wear pants at night?

What ghastly ectoplasmic fluid are you expecting to gush forth all night from your fundament? shock

I don't wear anything, not even pants. Wash bedding once a week but can't really see why sleeping naked would make them any dirtier.

I always wipe properly after using the toilet.

I don't understand why people wear anything at night. To restrictive. I wash my sheets at least once per week.

Duchess that properly made me laugh.

Letting the air get to your bits is beneficial.

I like to free my fundamentals for at least a few hours out of every 24.

There's nothing gushy going on here thank you that would require overly frequent washing of bedding.

And they're knickers, not pants grin

I wear pants and pjs, I like to be cosy in bed sleeping naked feels weird.

ArgyMargy Thu 10-Mar-16 18:38:33

Yes, YABU to ask. 1) It's none of your business. 2) This is a TAAT which is also U. 3) If you haven't realised by now that different people do different things you are seriously deranged.

I wear pj's, no knickers. I wear them for 2 nights usually. Why would my sheets need extra washing?

That1950sMum Thu 10-Mar-16 18:39:08

Why would you wear knickers at night?

I like my bits to get a bit of an airing.

SmellySourdough Thu 10-Mar-16 18:39:41

what air will get to your bits?
unless you don't have a blanket and have you legs akimbo there is not much airflow, knickers or no knickers.

knickers in bed here, otherwise I feel vulnerable.

If air can't get through a pair of knickers you must be wearing some weird knickers. confused
Man made fibre gusset? sad

I never used to wear anything.

Sadly the pelvic floor wasn't what it used to be post Menopause, so now I'm back in knickers.

I'm all for being naked whenever you can, there'll come a time when it isn't practical.

Cutecat78 Thu 10-Mar-16 18:42:30

I sleep naked - even in others peoples houses smile

LaContessaDiPlump Thu 10-Mar-16 18:43:58

I wear no pants in bed. That plus baggy cotton pyjama trousers means that my bits get an airing, which offsets the dreaded thrush.

I'm glad I shared that with you all.

Oysterbabe Thu 10-Mar-16 18:44:07

Used to sleep naked but now I'm in and out of bed every 5 minutes due to newborn so wear pants and a t-shirt.

ShatnersBassoon Thu 10-Mar-16 18:44:24

Unless you're scooching across the mattress like a dog with worms, I'm not sure how an unclothed undercarriage could make any difference to sheet cleanliness.

This question has been asked eleventy billion times already.

doesn't everybody wear pants at night, whether or not they sleep otherwise naked
No, because if you have knickers on then you aren't naked are you.

Fwiw, unless it's period week, I have guests or I am sleeping somewhere else, I sleep in the buff, not even knickers.

mumeeee Thu 10-Mar-16 18:44:50

I wear pants if I'm wearing a nightie but don't with Pyjamas. I have to wear something at night as can't sleep without anything on.

cosytoaster Thu 10-Mar-16 18:44:56

Here we go again!

I don't - I was brought up to believe that your bits needed to air at night, wearing knickers would feel weird (except when having a period)

Sparklingbrook Thu 10-Mar-16 18:45:57

This question has been asked eleventy billion times already.

Yes, I think you might be right grin

Cookingongas Thu 10-Mar-16 18:46:04

No knickers here. In bed at least.

MirriVan Thu 10-Mar-16 18:49:32

I always have nightmares if I don't wear knickers to bed.
