Whether you’re vacationing with family or friends, visiting family overnight, or headed to a conference where you’ll be sharing a room finding pajamas that are comfy but offer coverage can be tough. Today for Fashion Friday I’m sharing some of the tricks I picked up and preferences I have for finding comfy and cute clothes to wear to bed that you don’t mind other folks seeing.
This is timely for me too, since later today I’m surprising my kids with a trip to my sister’s house for a sleepover. She lives about 90 minutes away and a day trip is pretty exhausting, and it means we don’t get an sister bonding time with 8 kids between us.
I always want to have something I can throw on in the morning when the early risers get up because I don’t usually get showered and dressed until they are off to school during to school year. On vacation and during the summer their internal clocks don’t shift that much. Since that means going to the bus stop in something pajama-like or having breakfast with family on vacation a t shirt or typical pajamas just don’t cut it anymore.
What to Wear to Bed
Tops are key for me. I need something that offers some support and coverage on top, so I love these tops from Target made by Gilligan & O’Malley. These are so cute and have a molded cup bra and at $12 they are super affordable.
If I need to walk out to the bus stop or sneak downstairs at a conference for morning coffee I throw on a hoodie. I picked up several like these from Gap Body on their clearance rack for $4! I have one in black and one in gray.
Comfy pants or shorts are another must have. Yoga pants are great since they can go from bed to bus stop to gym (or more likely in a chair working on the computer) ;). Lulemon of course makes the best pants but at over $100 I stick to brand I can find at Target and sports chains like Champion or Nike. These are some cute yoga pants for $9.99 (though I wish they came with her stomach).
Nightgowns and robes are great for summertime, but finding one that is flattering, not skimpy (save those for other occasions) and not your granny’s gown can be tough. Instead you can opt for a simple tank dress like this one, and if you’re crafty embellish it with flowers, lace or even fabric paint.This Old Navy dress is super affordable at $22 and can be used for bedtime to brunch.
Robes are another must. If only to throw on when you are chilly. Again finding a good length can be tough. Most seem to be either skimpy (or maybe it’s just my long torsoed self) or hit the floor. I prefer something that hits by the knee to offer coverage but still feel lightweight. I love this robe that’s modest but still cute (though I would love it in a more fun color- me + white don’t mix). At $37 it’s not cheap but I’m betting you can score a more affordable one at a different retailer.
