What do you sleep in ladies?

My favorite sleeping attire is an over sized tee-shirt and a pair of men's pajama bottoms. It just hit me the other night as I was getting ready for bed that I buy a new sleeping shirt about every five years. Five years because that's about the life span of the tee-shirt. LOL I went from a Bahamas to an Alaska to a Mickey Mouse and now a Vail, Colorado shirt. My daughter and her hubby went there on their honeymoon and brought one back for me.

It's like all the others. Huge and just about hangs to my knees. It's comfort I'm after, ladies. If you can sleep in one of those little see through things with a matching thong than go for it! Not me. And I don't care how the shirt looks after a thousand washings.

The last one I wore looked like a cat had taken their claws to it. But by the end of five years it's sooooo soft and comfortable. I hate giving it up because it's tough breaking in a new one. It's stiff and scratchy and doesn't give like the old one. But alas, five years is about all I can get out of it.

I guess that's not too bad. Especially when you consider I wash it about four times a week:)

Debbie...I'm all about comfortable clothes all of the time and they last me forever. Most often I sleep in a jockey tank and soft cotton pj shorts. When it gets really cold I switch to a man's XL super soft cotton t-shirt or similar and long cotton pj bottoms.

I make it a point that all of my clothing is made of soft material but you're right, after years of washing those t-shirts get even softer.

I have accumulated an enormous supply of t-shirts and jockey tank tops over the years ~ most of which have been given to me so I don't have do laundry all that often....Nancy:)

Lucky you! I only have one tee-shirt at a time and wear it to death:) But like you, comfort is the name of the game.

I wear pj's, t-shirts, sweats, whatever I feel comfy in.

I sleep in a tank top and underwear. I like beign comfortable when I sleep.

You don't have a special, Dina? Something you've had and worn so long that it's baby soft and out of shape and maybe a little ragged? LOL

I envy you being able to be comfortable in a simple tank top and undies, Ruby. I too voluptuous to get away with that:)

Oversized t-shirts are my sleepingwear of choice too. Mine is old and I am contemplating a replacement. The t-shirt that is highest on my list of possibilities reads:

Genius by birth. Slacker by choice.

I love that, lil! It's hard replacing a tee-shirt that's just about perfect after years of wearing and washing. You have to start all over!
