The most important question yet!

Do you dress your top or bottom part first when getting dressed in the morning? Tried getting dressed the other way round this morning and it felt really odd. Just a lighthearted question for fun instead of doom and gloom.

In the winter it's legs first (mainly so that I can keep my nice warm dressingown on whilst I do it). Then a quick discard of nice warm dressingown and top half clothed as quickly as possible.

In the summer it's whatever I lay my hands on first.

Definitely bottom half first then top.

Top half first with me. Either showering or strip washing, so that I can get a thick jumper on keeping the body warm with the bottom half last. I don't feel so chilled doing it this way.

It's quite a performance when I strip wash. Top half done, jumper on. Then wash legs and feet and " under the circumstances " and on with underwear tights and trousers.
Quicker to get a shower !

Same here, bottom half first.

TrendyNannie6 Sun 01-Mar-20 12:21:17

Always bottom half first, never ever done top half first

After my morning shower, I dress my top half then put my knickers on, rub body butter in my feet and legs then finally put on socks and trousers.

Despite the central heating, usually my nightie stays on (after washing) while I get my lower half dressed. But it depends on the season - warm days are so much easier!

I'm a rebel. It depends which mood I wake up in.

BlueBelle Sun 01-Mar-20 12:40:39

I don’t think I have a set routine if I m cold it’s top first if not probably bottom first but like the toilet roll thing ...does it matter 🤔

jane1956 Sun 01-Mar-20 12:42:52

how can you keep dressing gown on and get washed before dressing???

kittylester Sun 01-Mar-20 12:55:54

Bottom half, have to save my dh from that sight!!

Bluebelle that's the point, it doesnt matter!

M0nica Sun 01-Mar-20 12:57:07

Depends what I am wearing.

BlueSky Sun 01-Mar-20 13:01:17

Knickers first then bras if I'm going out, followed by skirt and top. So yes bottom half first perhaps because subconsciously I don't like my leg but don't mind my bust! grin

Knickers first then bras
How many bras do you wear at any given time Blueskygrin

I get everything out that I’m going to wear that day. Then just put underwear on first followed by the rest.
Never thought about the order!

Pyjamas off, then pants, bra, jumper, socks, jeans, thicker jumper, slippers, hair.
Shower at night, so no shower in morn. I feel clean enough to face the day.

annodomini Sun 01-Mar-20 13:37:19

Socks first cos I hate having cold feet. Then pants and upwards.

MiniMoon Sun 01-Mar-20 13:38:31

Jump out of shower and dry off quickly. Then on with the top clothes. I apply moisturiser to my legs and feet every morning, so dress the bottom half last.
I couldn't do it the other way round, it wouldn't be right.

BlueSky Sun 01-Mar-20 13:41:28

Jane none if I can help it! grin

It must be done in that order although it is permitted for socks to be put on after the bottom.

DanniRae Sun 01-Mar-20 15:06:26

Top half first - no particular reason just always been that way grin

grannyqueenie Sun 01-Mar-20 18:21:11

After coming out of the shower it’s always knickers 1st. Then usually nothing else until I’ve perched on the bed to dry my hair. Then it’ll be bra, jeans, socks and a top followed by a necklace and earrings. Stuck in a rut, not much!!

ninathenana Sun 01-Mar-20 18:24:25

Always bottom half first. No need to keep top half covered with central heating.

NotAGran55 Sun 01-Mar-20 18:27:59
