I Don't Wear Pajamas to Sleep

    Not Since I Was A Kid.

    I started sleeping naked when I was 10. I somehow got the idea that all adults slept naked* and viewed it as a sign of maturity. So, not wanting to upset my parents, I asked them if I could start sleeping naked, and they were okay with it. (My mom and dad are really cool...

    And Haven'T

    Since puberty. I find night clothes to be annoying and restrictive.

    I Don'T Wear Pj'S

    ...in fact I don't wear anything at all in bed. Strangely it feels much warmer than when I used to wear something in bed and is so comfortable. I didn't start to sleep naked until I was in my 30's but with the benefit of hindsight I wish I'd started many years before.

    I actually do but rarely.

    My usual stay at home look is a t-shirt and shorts. I want a onesie though, especially now that winter is practically here

    Not Since I Was 12

    I don't own any pyjamas. I've grown out of the pyjamas I wore as a kid and haven't bought any new ones since. I usually just wear an oversized shirt to bed and that's about it. Or sometimes nothing. It feels amazing having my silk or cotton sheets wrapped around me while I...

    Pajamas Are Fun!

    Usually I pass out wearing my clothes or most of the clothes that I wore during the day. If I actually go to bed thought, it's always in the nude or a pair of underwear because I get nightmares when I'm overheated at night. I do OWN a bunch of pajama pants/articles though, but...

    I actually never owned a pair of pajamas.

    During the summer, my "pajamas" are panties and a jersey/regular t-shirt. Or during the winter, pajama pants and my sports bra. It's probably weird but so comfortable, I'm telling you. Never tired nude though, I think I'll feel too exposed then.

    Just Clothes

    I used to wear pajamas as a small child, but now it just seems so pointless. Why wouldn't I just wear my normal clothes to bed? They are way more comfy. :DAnd I could never sleep naked or in boxers, that just sucks. I feel too vulnerable without clothes, even if that does seem a...

    I have been wearing to bed the clothes I wore during the day. Started several years ago.  I'm at home most of the time and wearing clothes for around the house.  I found that they're generally comfortable in bed, and I want to make less laundry by not wearing gowns/pajamas...

    I've never worn heavy make up. When I do wear make up I only wear eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and light powder foundation. I've always been told "less is more"
