I have real issues with nightwear

(135 Posts)

I do not like cartoon characters/cutesy slogans
I am not some sort of vamp in black/red/purple shiny nylon with scratchy lace
I don't really do pastels
I can only afford a tenner or so

So while Tesco had it's sale on yesterday I thought I'll buy a nice top to wear as a nighty

But I like it so much I want to wear it as a top (& it's not on the website so I can't show you); which brings me back to "I have real issues with nightwear"

I have no issues with nightwear. I sleep naked.

dexter73 Sun 12-Jun-11 10:04:31

I have these.

KatyMac Sun 12-Jun-11 10:09:45

Oh yes that's my other point

I am big busted so those little thin straps hurt my shoulders

Naked, hmm, when it's very hot maybe; but my house is cold

I buy oversize long T-shirts (tunics I guess) that you'd normally wear with leggings at H&M, at about a tenner. They are stretch cotton, cover my bum (when I jump out of bed for a crying child) and are navy and white stripe.

I buy PJ bottoms separately cos I like cotton. usually pay between £8-12. Sainsbos, Tesco, Primark etc all have them. Then cheap Tshirts or thick strapped vests from similar places in black or white. Don't like nighties.

That would work - I'll have a look in H&M

JackieNo Sun 12-Jun-11 10:45:49

It's a bit more than you want to pay, but I have some of these, in various weights and lengths, which are great - last well, and are v comfy blush

SeymoreButts Sun 12-Jun-11 10:54:14

what sassy said, I buy PJ bottoms from Primark etc. and wear vests or t-shirts on top. Not sure about naked, pants as a minimum surely? I would be changing the sheets daily!

GreenTeapot Sun 12-Jun-11 10:57:43

YY to naked.

You would only need to change the sheets daily if you were exceptionally sweaty or produced unusual amounts of bodily fluids, surely?

FriedaRoam Sun 12-Jun-11 10:58:24

how do you itch your arse if you are naked

do you all have stinky fingers

GreenTeapot Sun 12-Jun-11 10:59:31

not too cutesy

GreenTeapot Sun 12-Jun-11 10:59:59

Frieda shock I have neither stinky fingers or an itchy arse!

FriedaRoam Sun 12-Jun-11 11:00:38

you must itch your arse in the night
everyone does . its the female equivalent of hard ons

GreenTeapot Sun 12-Jun-11 11:02:36

I most certainly don't think I do do not!

KatyMac Sun 12-Jun-11 11:30:13

Thanks guys

I still think everythings, well, pastel

But I do have some options

allhailtheaubergine Sun 12-Jun-11 11:34:19

I wear vests and short shorts. This sort of thing.
