To think there's no such thing as a nice nighty?

PJ bottoms irritate the fuck out of me in bed, up my arse crack, twisting round and rolling up. Tried cheap ones, fancy ones, tapered legs, open legs and shorts. Plus worn regularly give me awful thrush.

I've been wearing a pH top or t shirt to bed but I want something longer, that covers my bum.

I can't find a nice, comfortable nighty. Everything either looks like something my grandmother would wear or is a silky/ polyester sexy thing.

I want a nice, comfortable, none cutesy, non grandma nighty.

Can’t you just wear an oversized tshirt? I like wearing DP’s tshirts to bed and DP thinks it looks sexy blush

Not long enough unfortunately.

Big granny pants and a t shirt? When you get up put your pj bottoms on.

Just go for comfort and forget how you look!

Longer than a tshirt, not cutesy.

Nighties do and will always ride up though.

I’ve got a couple from Victoria secret that are basically like really long tshirts, they come down to mid thigh on me (but I am quite short.

Slouchy t shirt and big knickers for me, pj pants (and dressing gown) when I get up before I get dressed

Can't wear knickers in bed,. I get thrush.

I was looking for a nightie recently and saw some nice ones on La Redoute.

Primark do long cotton tshirts for bed. They are all a bit slogany but some are cool. I have a Star Wars one. Only about a tenner if I remember correctly too

I like that owlina.

I'll take a look in Victoria secret noise.

I get up several times in the night and don't really want to be having to get on bottoms on and off each time.

TK Max usually has oversized night shirts / non-granny nighties. I’m a total convert. I wear them with leggings in the evenings then bare legs overnight, and love that I can walk past windows without scaring my neighbours!

Forever 21! Cheap but lasted me well

I have cotton nighties, they cover my bum, from peacocks, for one

I wear long t-shirt dresses from Asos.... Although often with long jogns, as I am cold at night

Thanks. Some helpful ones on here. I'd looked in m&s and they were really grannyish. And primark were all thin straps, but it may have been as I was looking in summer.

TK Maxx often have nighties by Cynthia Rowley and they are my absolute favourite - soft jersey material but nice detailing (not 'slinky' but attractive)

Whenever I see maxi length vest style nightdresses in a decent fabric, I grab two. They're the only truly comfortable shape.

Im not sure if there are many about ATM.

This one is long. There's a few the same length on the Matalan website
