PJs

New Jersey is cold in the winter. That may not surprise you but it will shock the shit out of pajama manufacturers. Why, you ask?
Because every pajama I have seen sold in stores lately is a tank top and pants. Who the fuck wears a tank top to bed in January in the northeast?

I received my Victoria's Secret Christmas book yesterday and more of the same filled every page, tank tops, flannel pants and warm slippers.
Now I keep my house warmer then E & I would like to at night in winter because the kid's rooms are cold. I don't like warm pajamas either, like long sleeve flannel sets. I would love cotton pants and a nice fitting (read: not so TIGHT as to sausage in my boobs and not short so when I awake in the night the bottom of my shirt is around my neck) t-shirt.
Is that so much to ask for?
Apparently.

Isn't there a happy medium? Do you have to sweat to death all night or freeze?

Maybe I am crazy, do you peeps wear tank tops to bed in the winter?

    yes, because I like the option of cooling myself off by sticking my arms out from under the covers. I can't wear pants to bed. It's not natural! Undies or short shorts. No sense in picking out wedgies all night!

  4. pj bottoms and a t-shirt, NOT a tank. I wear that year-round, unless it's really hot and I just wear the T.

  5. Diana, that is what I wear. But it is hard to find! I usually wear sperates that I jsut have and E complains I wear the hideous, outdates, holey things to bed. NOT SEXY

  6. Hell no. I wear a comfy cotton t-shirt and a pair of sweats. Although, I kick the sweats off right before actually climbing into bed. Can't stand anything on my legs when I'm trying to sleep.

  7. Usually I will buy mens white undershirts from hanes or FOTL. Plain t can usually match anything, because you're right, no one sells pj's with t's anymore. If E doesn't find an almost sheer white t sexy... ::wink wink::...unless you're wearing a TANK under!LOL

  8. I am with ya. It gets cold here! I typically wear pajama bottoms with a t-shirt to bed. In fact, that is also my lounge around the house-wear, too! With little kids, you never know when you'll have to get up, and I won't be parading around this cold house in a little skimpy jamma combo! lol

  9. I'm going to go out on a limb and let you in on alittle secret. Victoria;s Secret is for 21 yr. old girls w/perky breasts that would rather look pretty than be warm @night. Believe it or not I had to start shopping out of the LLBean catalog a few yrs. back. But then again I'm pushing 39 and getting older by the minute and apparently more and more like my mother.

  11. Yes comfort won over sexy about 3 days into my marriage.
    I just can never find something fairly attractive but also not freeze to death in the night.
