Have you ever considered that your pajamas and sleepwear should be attractive too?
If you're a married woman, I'll bet in the early days of your marriage you considered looking mighty pretty for that man of yours...and now...not so much!
We get tired of fixing up, right? It's much easier to throw on your gray or navy sweats to wear around the house at night and early morning. But have you ever stopped to think that your sleepwear is a part of your wardrobe that should be in colors that flatter you and styles that do, too?
Yes, it's nice to look good for your man, but how about looking nice for you too...even in sleepwear!
One of my facebook friends, Jolee Bishop Beamer asked specifically about this topic. Here's what she asked (and a picture of her too!)
What do you suggest for sleepwear? Something that my husband will find attractive but that I can still wear around the kids or in the event I have to run outside in an emergency. I'm sure there's a fine line between Fredrick's and my college wear!
Yes, Jolee and bloggy friends, there is a fine line but there are some great ways to be comfortable, yet look like you're ready for bed, too!
First, some sleepwear you should NOT wear: and why not? because you'll look like a granny when you're not...and if you ARE a granny, you'll look like your granny's granny.....do you all get what I'm trying to say here? They will make you look way older than you are! Take a look.....again, of what NOT to wear:
Now you know what NOT to wear, let's take a look at
WHAT TO WEAR.
Keep in mind that as you shop for sleepwear, have your color swatches with you. Color is THE most important aspect of sleepwear. Purchase sleepwear in a color that is VERY flattering to you. Don't sway very far from the color that is shown on your swatch. As you look at these PJ's, think of the color first, the style second. The sleepwear I've shown are all from Dillards and range from about $30-70. I have found that sleepwear from a Department Store tends to be better quality and doesn't shrink when I wash it, though,
this might not be so for all pieces so read labels.
The other important aspect of your sleepwear is the fit...don't wear something too short (if you have kids you may be bending over alot) and always follow the guidelines I've taught you for covering the fullest part of your body. If you have a tummy, then find something that has a top that is longer than the fullest part of your belly. For those of you with fuller bottoms, a night shirt or pj's with more relaxed pant bottoms are wonderful. I love the hoodie type pj's but really, any of the pics below work whether you're in the house with hubby and kids or if you have to run outside in a jiffy.
Here are pics of flattering sleepwear:
And if you want to be comfortable AND get your husband's attention, you can always wear sleepwear with his favorite team's logo...and then get ready to go to bed...early!
Thanks to Jolee for asking this question, I hope it helped you know what to wear to bed!
