DH says its like getting into bed with a mummy some nights, would love to wear sexy clothes each night but the thoughts of shaving and dressing up is far from my mind! PJs are the easy option lol!

Good god no, could not be arsed with thatshock

I have been married 31 years, we have seen each other at our best and our worst, no need for dressing up. Comfort over style I say must be getting old

I dont dress up sexy at all. Not my thing. I do make sure im clean, smell nice, soft skin etc but i do this for myself when im alone too. Its just how i feel comfy.

My bf finds my choices of nightwear aesthetically pleasing, however i chose then for comfyness. I was wearing his boxers and, referring to a conversation earlier in the day where he said he doesnt understand whats attractive about men (as in, from a woman or a gay man's view) and he said if men looked as good as i do hed see it haha. Mostly i tendnto wear either seamless shorts or my short short pj sets.

I think the sexiest thing is what youre most comfortable in. I have friends who religiously wear full, matching sexy undies day and night.

I certainly wouldnt so it because hes insisting. Its not the same if youre not comfortable.

It's the present that counts, not the wrapping paper.

No need to dress up when we both sleep naked. There's nothing better than skin on skin to feel intimate. Don't understand why people would want to wear any clothes in bed, especially during these hot summer nights.

+1 for sleeping naked, whatever the weather. My partner wears what I call a suit of armour in bed and still wears knickers. It really is one of my pet hates and after 16 years I have been unable to persuade her of the benefits of nakedness. Oddly enough, she soon objects if denied access to my cock, but it seems OK for me to have to negotiate various layers before I can get to her bits.

I like to wear a chemise. Comfortable, easy and hopefully more alluring than a regular nightie (no shaving required). Mine have different levels of transparency to give DH due notice of my inclinations smile

Think a lot of my problem is lack of body confidence, if I didn't have the post baby body I might be more able to dress up or down, lol!

I dress up every night for bed without fail, often putting a lot of thought and effort into it.

My wife, not so much.

Now and again, yes. But not all the time, that's why he gets excited when I do and keeps things fresh.

My wife has never dressed up once for bed, and doesn't own a single piece of sexy underwear.

This makes me sad.

I always wear matching underwear, as sexy as I can afford (H cup so not easy to always find stuff that fits!). However my slobbing around the house is pj's that are like hoodies and jogging bottoms. Dp will come into the kitchen and I'll quickly 'flash' him what's underneath. Don't wear it in bed, as we sleep naked, but it definitely heats things up before bed, him knowing what's underneath 🙈

Some fab things on love honey but I would be mortified to wear some of them

Dress up!? No!! Ive been sleeping in leggings and an oversize top recently, sexy!

By "going to bed" do you mean going to sleep, or about to have sex?

Going to bed is naked. Even in winter. But especially in this weather, jesus fucking christ.

About to have sex, naked if you're in your regular bed but matching underwear if he's paid for a weekend hotel stay or arranged a date night.

I personally hate sex at night as I'm TIRED. I much prefer sex in the morning. Set your alarm for half an hour earlier than normal and have a pre-work quickie. (This absolutely does not apply if you have no children!)
