Men in general are not always renowned for getting subtle hints about your mood and unless you are wearing something deliberately provocative for a romantic evening of adventure and not sleep, they probably won’t get what you are saying with your choice of nightwear.
We can use clothes to express and reflect our personality in public and that is often the case when it comes to our choice of sleepwear, so what is your choice of nightwear saying about you?
You might take several hours to get yourself ready for a night out but what you end up wearing to bed at the end of the evening is not often something you probably give a lot of time or thought to in comparison.
It is the fact that many of choose our nightwear almost subconsciously which helps to reveal a lot about our personality, as we are often relaxed and with loved ones at home, so we don’t necessarily dress to impress.
These footed pajamas for women are a great case in point, as they are a great choice if you are looking for something cozy and comfortable and you are comfortable with who you are and who you are with.
We all have our own pajama preferences and of course some of us are quite happy wearing our birthday suit to bed.
If you like to go to bed as naked as the day you were born, you are unlikely to be too self-conscious and quite literally, comfortable in your own skin, but for the rest of us, we tend to have our revealing pajama preferences.
Fleece for those that feel the cold
If your material of choice for your pajamas is fleece, then you are definitely someone who feels the cold regardless of how warm a climate you happen to be living in.
Anything that is made from a warm and cozy material such as alpaca, cashmere or fleece is going to hit the spot for you and whilst those around might shake their head in wonder at how you are burning up, you might even be filling up the hot water bottle for extra warmth.
Sleeping in style
You might be the type of woman who is not prepared to sacrifice their sense of style and ability to make a statement with what they are wearing, just because you are heading to bed.
If this is you, then you are probably going to be putting on your matching vintage pajama set and making a list of things to do the next day, being the organized perfectionist that this choice of nightwear tends to suggest you are.
Living in the past
Apparently, if you happen to wear an old t-shirt to bed, you are likely to be the kind of woman who enjoys reminiscing and has lots of photos and reminders dotted around the home.
The theory goes that you sleep better when you are dreaming of yesteryear, which is considered to be the reason why you might retire for the night wearing an old boyfriends favorite t-shirt.
If you are prepared to confess to considering or even owning a pair of feathered bedroom heels, you are probably the sort of glamour puss who chooses to wear a silk chemise.
Dressing to impress, even when the lights are out is what inspires your choice of attire and the chances are also high that you might have applied some expensive face cream or even slipped on a scented sleep mask as part of your nightly routine.
Sleep is just a necessity
Some of us view sleep as a means to an end and just something we need to do to recharge the batteries and have enough energy for the day ahead.
If you simply want to wear something that is easy and comfortable and don’t want to spend any longer in bed than you need to in order to be able to function, you are probably going to be wearing an oversized shirt for your snoozing activities.
Who would have thought that our choice of nightwear could reveal so much about our personalities?
