I do not want to wear pjs anymore

I want a big ole comfy nightie

no broderie anglaise

they had some really cool proper old fashioned victorian (stylee, im no historian tho) floor length white cotton nighties in a little boutique in winchester last year... helpful? moi? but of course!
i really wanted one. but i wanted a dress more and the dress won. i might go back and take a look soon...

I don't mean actually old lady nighties

I mean not-old-lady nighties

<confused and tired>

I've also been looking and nearly gave up until I found this:
white company
They do this in a lovely brown called rich noisette - don't know what colour you're looking for but I've got 3 boys and there are no pale colours worn in our house!

here is the short version in the brown

very expensive but lovely toast nighties
they even do a cashmere one

Cappuccino Thu 25-Sep-08 17:27:21

I really do love tht

ah sorry..just with you saying you want to wear a nightie like an old lady..

Marks do this and this as well.

MadBadandDangeroustoKnow Thu 25-Sep-08 17:29:11

Primark and most of the other chains have t-shirt stylee nighties too

Ooh, I could convert to nighties, having seen those White Company ones.

NappiesGalore Thu 25-Sep-08 17:32:40

ah well if you like the white co one, then you def ought to check out tkmaxx. (i feel like im saying that a lot recently, tis prob getting v boring nowhmm)
i got really nice pjs in there yesterday (am more a pjs girl than a nighty one) for 15 quid. better than the 95 i was sorely tempted to pay for hush silk ones.

Cappuccino Thu 25-Sep-08 17:34:51

well I am quite excited because I am going to have to go somewhere with a TK Maxx for work soon, we don't have one

Combustiblelemon Thu 25-Sep-08 17:37:49

Ah, I see what you mean now! I used to have a lilac one like that from La Senza I think.
