Long nightdress with sleeves that isn't frumpy?

I like nightdresses, and have previously worn shorter length tshirt style from ASDA and the like - cheap and cheerful. I wear PJ's if we have guests, but not a great fan.

However, we're moving nearer family so expecting to have guests more often. Long nightdresses are therefore a compromise. I get to be comfy, they don't have to accidentally catch sight of anything they shouldn't!

But supermarkets don't do long, and M&S do, but they look like something my granny would wear.

Any ideas?

Try Bhs they do long nightshirts you might need to rummage through the granny nighties grinto find them

I too like nightdresses with long sleeves. I have three from M&S La Maison de Senteurs range, thick cotton which for £20 fit the bill. One is grey and white stripes and two - from this year - are white with a small dots. I don't think they are frumpy. Grannies can be stylish, not that I am one grin

Hmm, only ones online I can see are floral style. Will google Maison de Senteurs.

Never thought of BHS...

Assuming the model is the usual 10 feet tall, this from Debenhams is probably long enough for decency.

Googling 'nightshirt' rather than nightdress seems to produce ones with sleeves.

Hmm, I always knew models were 10 feet tall. Check out M&S's idea of 'ankle length' on this one!

Yeah its a long night shirt you are after night dresses are silky and flimsy or frilly and frumpy

Good to know. I'd happily wear a blokes shirt if it was long enough, but curling on the couch in a shortie doesn't work if you have people in the house other than your DH.

Nothing available long length with sleeves at the moment but check back for autumn / winter stock as they do some nice stuff which might fit the bill, although is a tad pricey.

Are these too short?

have you considered buying a dressing gown to keep you covered up when guests are round? You could get a cosy one for winter and a lighter one for summer

Have a dressing gown, but first thing in the morning, it's not always to hand - especially if I've been up with DS and crashed beside him.

I use a couple of cheap maxi tshirt dresses I bought in previous summers which have gone a bit faded / a little misshapen, I find them perfect as you say when there are others in the house.

Oh, maxi Tshirt dress. That could work really well. Great idea!
