Pyjamas for long legs

I'm being admitted to hospital for an op and need some PJs. Everything I've looked at so far is 2/3 inches above my ankle bone

I've got a 33in inside leg. Any ideas?

Watching with interest. Am considering buying men's pjs so they are long enough!

M and s used to do their autograph ones in a long length. They were great. Not sure if they do a replacement.

I'm a 33/34 in leg and they fitted great, so if they don't try ebay for some maybe?

I've just found the holy grail of pyjamas. Honestly, long leg and not 4 million quid.


I shit you not, Primark. They do ones with a 'turned up leg' but it's just a normal turn up with a button-flap thing to hold it up, like a shirt sleeve. So undo it, roll them down, and hey presto. Long leg pants!

The long sleeved tops are the same.

I'm 5'8" and proper long-limbed. I've never had winter pyjamas that fit before. I literally cannot grin wide enough grin

Also long tall Sally. Victoria's Secret used to do long leg ones, I'm wearing their campus pants to slob in and they're too long for me!

Ginger - men's are shorter in the leg I find and also tight on my bum

Primark - my DD said this so I tried there today but too short. She is also 5ft 8 like you smile

I'll check that goodasitgets. Doittoo…just browsing online!

Try Joules, I'm a 33" leg and they're perfect. The 'Cora' style is a soft jersey, Fleur is a more robust flannel cotton. And Lepel's PJ bottoms are a good length too.

Watching with interest. I am no as tall, but all my pyjama legs flap above my ankles. I had a look at men's pyjamas in M & S the other day, but they are too masculine looking.

RandallFloyd Sat 09-Nov-13 21:59:48

The Primark turned up ones are too short even after you've rolled them down?
That's weird, I'm a 34" leg and the ones I've got are plenty long enough on me.

Oh well, hopefully some of the other ideas on here will work.

I have just had a look at the Victoria's Secret website and their pyjamas come in three leg lengths. We have a new VS in Meadowhall so I think I will nip along and have a look.

J Crew do gorgeous pyjamas with a long leg.

Watching with interest, last year I had to give up and got my mum to send me some from Holland (where people are taller and trousers/pyjama bottoms accordingly longer, as are sleeves). Especially as I didn't have a lot of money to spend on them, more of a supermarket/Primark budget than a Victoria's Secret one!

Lauren by Ralph Lauren pyjamas - perfect for my 33" / 34" inseam legs, comfy and they wash well.

gindrinker Sun 10-Nov-13 07:39:42

H+m men's ones. Mr Gin bought me a pair as a joke after winging for a whole winter a few years ago.
They're navy and inoffensive.

SoftSheen Sun 10-Nov-13 07:48:43

I also have a 33'' leg and the same problem. I find that either Gap or Primark are best. M&S used to do long length pyjamas but I haven't seen them recently.

mysteryfairy Sun 10-Nov-13 07:59:42

Hush do pyjamas in a long length. I haven't got any so not sure how long they actually are. They always sell out before the regular ones though so not sure why more people don't make them. For a cheaper option I am wearing Next tall pjs - can only be ordered online but are ludicrously long.

Thank you all. Some great ideas to chase up

dizhin79 Sun 10-Nov-13 08:30:39

marking place as 34" here too!! I could begin the list of ones to avoid!! does anyone else fear the Xmas gifts that feel like pj's and are the inevitable able hoverers from well meaning relatives, who seem to forget, even after years of knowing you at the height u r, that u do have long legs??? oh and arms, don't even get me started on arms!! <backs away trying not to sound ungrateful>

*ankle not able grin

sedgieloo Sun 10-Nov-13 08:46:05

Ooh I have this question too! Could someone describe more the primark ones a bit more, my store is massive and I get overwhelmed by all the stuff.

SpookyRestingFace Sun 10-Nov-13 10:06:12

I have the Primark ones Randall mentioned, they are brilliant. One of my best buys. I stumbled upon them whilst looking for soft crop-top type bras.

I don't have especially long legs (32") but they are slightly too long with the tab unbuttoned, on me they are just right with the turn-ups. I hate PJs that ride up at the ankle when you sit down, so these are perfect. Material is lovely and soft too, and stays that way after washing.

I keep meaning to go and get another pair, but hate battling my way through Primark, it is a special kind of hell blush

Long tall sally. They are £25 I think. So so so long! I have 34" inside leg. Just bought my first pair, and won't be going anywhere else EVER again!

rubybleu Sun 10-Nov-13 12:36:57

I'm also 33" of leg and find Calvin Klein PJ bottoms are a good length and happily, all sizes are the same length. They are a bit pricey at £30 but last forever.

SharpLily Sun 10-Nov-13 12:49:51

I also wear a 33-34" leg but am not especially tall - more out of proportion! The problem I find is that the PJs (and often trousers) with the long enough legs tend also to be far too long in the waist. I can either pull them up to just under my boobs, Simon Cowell style, or have to wear an MC Hammer style dangling crotch sad. Hipsters are the only solution but they're not always available.

Watching with interest, I tried to get some from the Next tall range but they sold out pretty quickly.

Did have some from Aerie (American Eagle) but they got caught on something in the washing machine angry

Such an obvious market gap!
