Aibu: PJs with pants underneath at night?*

I do, partner does, and so do the kids. However we didn't when we were kids, and my nieces don't when they come to stay. Was reading something on the NHS site about worms recently (prompted by the wildly inappropriate 'medicating-someone-else's-kid' post a few days ago - I mean the action was inappropriate, not the "thread") and it suggested wearing pants with PJs to combat thread-worms, implying that ppl don't normally??

Aibu in that we all do wear pants with nightwear as it's basic hygiene to me ?

*Not a pants-troll, but you'll either believe me or you won't....

We don’t wear pants under PJ’s here

mumwon · 12/12/2019 16:01

at least this is a change from Brexit & politics...

I wear pants under PJs. I don't believe my fanny needs to 'breathe'. Never had any issues

MsChnandlerBong · 12/12/2019 16:02

I don't wear pants at all, ever

Me either!

As for wearing any sort of clothes in bed Naked all the way thank you Smile

TinyTear · 12/12/2019 16:02

always pants! don't you people leak??

BarbourellaTheCoatzilla · 12/12/2019 16:02

Pants always. I don’t tend to wear pj trousers to bed but if I do I keep pants on. I can’t imagine wearing no pants mainly for the washing aspect. Washing pyjamas every day is incredibly wasteful imo no wonder people’s clothes wear out so much quicker these days. And it’s pretty vile not changing them with no pants.

siacolouredthesmallone · 12/12/2019 16:04

Talking of washing, I'm trying so hard to wash less these days. Looked at one of my tops recently and realised it had warp but hardly any weft from over-washing.

No, wearing knickers, pjs and under a hot duvet would be a breeding ground for bacteria! Let your bits breath.

Grape0 · 12/12/2019 16:04

I wear a big tshirt in bed with nothing on the bottom at all - I couldn't wear PJ bottoms in bed!

LochJessMonster · 12/12/2019 16:04

No pants! Its very weird to me that people wear pants under pjs!
Change pjs every 5 days ish.

What are you doing at night to get them that dirty that they have to be changed every day?

usernotfound0000 · 12/12/2019 16:05

No pants. I sleep with nothing on anway, but I shower in the evening and then put on PJs and remove before bed. DD doesn't wear pants under PJs and quite often PJs are discarded at some point in the night as she gets too warm.

lifeisgoodagain · 12/12/2019 16:06

No idea what my kids do now (adults) but they didn't as kids. I'm not keen on nightwear full stopGrin, just not comfortable

JemSynergy · 12/12/2019 16:06

I don't really care what other's choose to sleep in and wouldn't really spend too much time worrying about it. Grin

TatianaLarina · 12/12/2019 16:06

Pants under pjs in this house. Otherwise we (I) would have to have clean pjs every night.

Indecisivelurcher · 12/12/2019 16:06

We never wear pants under pj's but have had to this week as Dd picked up threadworms and gave them to me! I have not been enjoying wearing pants under pj's this week, it's just not as comfortable!!! Dh and Dd both agree.

Loveislandaddict · 12/12/2019 16:07

Pants under pjs.

stripeypillowcase · 12/12/2019 16:08

we didn't have heating at night when I grew up. so basically had to dress warmer than during the day to sleep comfortable.

Seriouslyconfused3 · 12/12/2019 16:08

Loose boxer shortie pants with pjs over the top for lounging then sleep in just the boxer pants (my house gets really warm)

Lolwhat · 12/12/2019 16:08

You need to let it all breathe🤢

Snowpatrolling · 12/12/2019 16:08

I can’t sleep if a have no pants on!! I wear a baggy T-shirt to Bed tho, would rather my fat arse wasn’t getting cold!

TatianaLarina · 12/12/2019 16:09

I don’t wear pjs but pj bottoms commando are in contact with nether regions ergo they’d have to be changed daily.

BlaueLagune · 12/12/2019 16:09

I don't wear them normally but obviously have to when I have my period (usually two pairs then to try to combat leaks).

Hopeforthemany · 12/12/2019 16:09

I didn’t but after a worm outbreak 😳 the kids have clean underpants on at night.

siacolouredthesmallone · 12/12/2019 16:10

I may let foofs and willies be free from now on then Grin See how we all feel after our shower tonight. But with the tiny kids, we're making a choice/ingraining a potential habit in it is worth some thought though. After all, Night is where we spend a fair bit of our time!
