DOES ANYONE ACTUALLY WEAR PAJAMAS ANY MORE? Especially with an ostomy, I don’t want any potential obstructions, like a waistline, while I’m sleeping. I wear night shirts. I have some flannel for winter, and some light cotton for summer. Even after I’ve discarded that, once I’ve made my way into my day, I will often shun pants in favor of a kaftan, which I will frequently wear throughout the day. I try not to exit my house with the kaftan on, even if I’m just in my yard or retrieving my mail, as I don’t want my neighbors to fear that they’re living next door to any sort of religious zealot. As far as jammies go, however, they always seemed unnecessary to me anyway. What’s the point? You’re in bed, presumably under covers of your choosing, so all pajamas can accomplish for you is keep you politely clothed as you patter back and forth to the bathroom or the kitchen or wherever right after you’ve awakened. You can use a robe for that. Does morning coffee taste better in pajamas? That would be a victory of mind over matter. As best I recall from my working days, one can get just as caffeinated in work clothes. As far as pajamas go, I favor Marilyn Monroe’s approach: she didn’t wear them. I think her sleepwear was Chanel No 5. Of course, she was Marilyn Monroe.
