I’m not unusually tall, just under 5’ 8” with a 31” inside leg but I am unable to find a pair of pyjama where the bottoms doesn’t flap half mast above my ankles. I suppose if I had dainty ankles it wouldn’t be so bad, but they could at best be described as sturdy.
I have been fooled by pictures online before where it looks like the bottoms are long enough but the models all seem to wear the waistband under their belly button, whereas my waist is decidedly 2 inches above my bellybutton. I used to be able to get the M&S long bottoms but they have discontinued them much to my dismay. I sometimes resort to buying the men’s bottoms as they have the length ( and have pockets!) but I don’t want to have to stick to navy or grey all the time.
Can anyone recommend somewhere that sells decent quality but not insanely expensive long fit pyjamas?
I am 5'8" and was just trying on PJs in Next today! This is a problem for me too, I want my pjs long, no cold ankles. The tall range is definitely longer, the pjs come as reg/tall and it is long enough for me definitely. And some of the bottoms have pockets-yay! I tried on this but decided matching top and bottoms was a bit much, was deffo long enough though. I went for these. Long Tall Sally do long PJs but I found them much too long.
I'm with Ttbb in that I wear my DP's pj bottoms when the nights start getting colder and especially when DP is away on business. I wear a nightie in summer, but love snuggling in his pj bottoms ( esp when he's wearing them!)
I’ve ordered a pair from Next, fingers crossed, will try Debenhams as well but wait for a week or so as DH looks a bit horrified if I come home with too many bags and I’m already starting my Christmas present ordering!
