I'm really fed up with being told that it looks like I'm wearing pyjamas, people joking that I haven't bothered to get dressed today etc.!

AIBU to wear this type of short out of the house? It's 33 degrees where I am currently.

I hate denim shorts, they're bloody uncomfy!

I wouldn't but only because my pale chubby thighs would horribly rub

HallowedMimic Wed 19-Apr-17 19:59:41

If I had the legs for them I would, but they do look like pyjamas.

My hypothetical legs would ensure I didn't care what anyone said though! grin

I wouldn't personally but that is more of a massive thigh issue than anything else. If I had the legs for them, sure. I don't think they look like PJs. confused

Loungewear or pyjamas imo. Ok for a quick trip to the corner shop at most.

Screwinthetuna Wed 19-Apr-17 20:00:53

Yes I would

Amockingjayhey Wed 19-Apr-17 20:01:13

Yeah totally

Whathaveilost Wed 19-Apr-17 20:01:50

They are fine to wear in hot weather.

PeppaPigTastesLikeBacon Wed 19-Apr-17 20:02:00

I have pjs grin

Violetcharlotte Wed 19-Apr-17 20:02:20

I would if I had the body for them!

justnowords Wed 19-Apr-17 20:02:30

yh they are shorts. Why wouldnt you?

EverythingEverywhere1234 Wed 19-Apr-17 20:02:40

God no. They're perfectly fine for lounging or indeed as pyjamas but they're not quite right for wearing around and about imo.

Goatfucker Wed 19-Apr-17 20:02:42

I would use them as pyjama bottoms in the summer as they are not very stylish.

ShatnersBassoon Wed 19-Apr-17 20:06:28

They look like sportswear more than pyjamas to me, so perhaps if I was forced to do sports I'd wear them. I wouldn't wear them, or do sports, for fun.

FumBluff1 Wed 19-Apr-17 20:08:32

If I had the legs I would wear them!

doughnutobssession Wed 19-Apr-17 20:10:16

I have them and wear them for running

MrsGB2225 Wed 19-Apr-17 20:10:16

I think you have to be young and skinny to wear them and even then unless it's to the beach or in the garden I wouldn't.

KayTee87 Wed 19-Apr-17 20:11:58

They are a bit pyjamay (new word). If you don't like denim shorts what about short cargo type shorts?

SecretNutellaFix Wed 19-Apr-17 20:14:46

They look like a throwback to the Pineapple dancewear epidemic of the 1980's, worn with a bubble perm and a seriously naff headband in matching jersey.


HarryDresdensLeatherDuster Wed 19-Apr-17 20:29:39

I wouldn't because I'm 50, short and fat grin. DD does all the time though cos she's 22 and tiny! If you have the legs, wear 'em!

PuffinNose Wed 19-Apr-17 20:32:08

Do you like them?
Do they cover your privates?
If the answer to both questions is yes, than what does it matter if otyer people think they are pjs?

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Wed 19-Apr-17 20:32:19

I have some that are similar that I wear round the house & in the garden in the summer but they would never venture actually off my property...

harderandharder2breathe Wed 19-Apr-17 20:33:31

Sports wear, pjs or the only people I've seen wear them as normal clothes are skinny teenage girls

But wear whatever you want

ohnothisisme Wed 19-Apr-17 20:35:27

Thanks everyone. I feel better now smile

If I was younger and thin, then yes.

At 40+ and fat, no way.
