How many of you stay in your PJ's for the day?

Sometimes i do, but its not usually my style smile

BlueSky Thu 28-Jan-21 12:47:00

Don’t wear PJs can’t stand the bottom part covered up in bed! But I do stay in my dressing gown most of the day.

Couldn't stay in sleepwear all day, at least not regularly, but DH and I have always had sets of comfortable clothes for wearing indoors and we slob about in those!

Really bad for your self esteem and mental well being in my opinion to stay in nightwear all day
Get up, get washed and dressed, do your hair make up as if you are going out, your whole being will respond differently

What BlueBelle said. Plus, I suppose it all depends on what your standards are.

Auntieflo Thu 28-Jan-21 13:19:53

Only ever when I have been ill.

Daddima Thu 28-Jan-21 13:28:18

I would love to, especially when it’s wintry outside, but I’ve not been comfortable doing it!
It’s not anything to do with ‘standards’, surely it’s about comfort? Your self esteem and well being could well benefit from a day of ‘ cootering’ ( Scottish word for cosseting!)

TrendyNannie6 Thu 28-Jan-21 13:33:39

No never, when I get up I have to have shower get dressed and do my hair etc, I couldn’t wear pjs all day, that only happens when I’m ill and to be honest I’d have to really be ill to do it 😂

EllanVannin Thu 28-Jan-21 13:37:10

Not at all. There's time for that when you're ill.

Riverwalk Thu 28-Jan-21 13:43:10

IMO, unless you have mobility problems or are ill, it doesn't matter what you wear during the day, loungewear, casual, pyjamas, etc, but staying all day in what you've slept in is slobbish!

Just why would you not get washed and dressed in fresh clothes?

Lexisgranny Thu 28-Jan-21 13:47:06

When I am certain there will be no deliveries I must admit to a very cosy onsie on chilly days, but I do put lipstick on and give my hair a good brushing to make up for it.

MissChateline Thu 28-Jan-21 13:53:15

Under no circumstances, I’m up, showered and off for my morning stomp through the woods by 8am. Love it that the mornings are getting a wee bit lighter so I can be out earlier every day. It’s a lovely time of the day.
However I do love the time after dinner when it’s OK to put on my leopard print onesie for the evening!

NotSpaghetti Thu 28-Jan-21 13:55:46

Unless I was too ill to get up.

Jaxjacky Thu 28-Jan-21 13:57:29

Nope, don’t even own any. Up, wash, teeth and dressed.

tanith Thu 28-Jan-21 14:01:34

No I’m up showered and dressed first thing I put pjs on early evening but I don’t sleep in them.

Doodledog Thu 28-Jan-21 14:04:19

I don't think it has anything to do with 'standards' grin. My standards are far more about how I treat people, but I suppose we are all different.

I sometimes stay in pyjamas if I know I am not going out or having visitors (when those things were possible). I always brush my teeth and hair, though, and have got back into the habit of putting on a bit of perfume, when I realised that lockdown had stopped me from bothering. If I have worn pyjamas in the day (thus saving on washing and wearing out normal clothes) I change into a clean pair after my evening bath.

Liz46 Thu 28-Jan-21 14:07:07

The only time I did that was when I had pneumonia. I would get up, have a shower, put fresh pjs on, have breakfast and go back to bed.
The bra is a different story. We went for a walk this morning and I became too hot. My husband said he would carry my coat for me and I was much more comfortable until I remembered I was braless. I told him, he had a look and said 'it makes your belly look bigger!'

crazyH Thu 28-Jan-21 14:09:52

Well said Doodledog - I’ve been to the shops in my jeans - back home and in my pyjamas - and after my evening shower, I will get into a fresh pair .....

Nightsky2 Thu 28-Jan-21 14:18:58

Same routine every day, boring I know but it’s the same every day. Breakfast, dog out for a wee, or dog out for a wee then breakfast followed with a quick bath, hair and face creams and a little eye makeup up, hair brushed and get dressed but what for.....
I would have to be unwell to stay in my pjs.

BlueSky Thu 28-Jan-21 15:25:17

Well said Doodledog! 👏

SueDonim Thu 28-Jan-21 15:54:35

What Bluebelle says. I occasionally have a pj day on a Sunday if I’m not going out but then I usually discover I need to go outside for something anyway!

I’d start to feel sorry for myself and think I was ill if I slopped about in pj’s all the time. Otoh, my two dds seem to have no trouble wearing pyjamas for much of the time!

Kim19 Fri 29-Jan-21 02:01:53

Nope, couldn't manage that. I'm already sometimes confused with the days. Don't want to add the hours to that dilemma!

Hetty58 Fri 29-Jan-21 02:24:16

All the time, right now, except when I go out. I've adapted well to lockdown conditions (and chilly weather). It's so easy to do the laundry, too!

BlueSapphire Fri 29-Jan-21 09:44:05

In my dressing gown till mid-morning, then shower and get dressed. Could not face the day without that. I do have nightwear, but it is just for hospital, and staying away from home. Bought some 'loungewear', and occasionally wear that after my shower.
