I have some knee-length shifts that I'll pull on if I have to look decent while taking out the trash or watering the flowers -- I think another generation once called them "patio dresses". Some are more like sundresses.

My mom wears muumuus. I keep buying new ones for her, and each time I do I make sure they're at least a foot longer than the one she has!

Me, I have a pair of jammy bottoms that I always wear, while the top is usually some kind of nerd shirt.

What I wouldn't give for full suit jammies with the feet in them, though!
YES.

I'm such a huge fan of footie pajamas/onesies. I have a koala and a pink bunny one, me and my brother have matching Star Trek onesies and I'm 6'1 and he's 6'4 so they definitely make them in adult sizes

I dont wear them but I am sure they are comfortable....I just wonder why they are worn usuallly worn by overweight women and they make them look a lot larger. There are other things that are comfortable and a lot more flattering j/s

Wear what you want some women dont care. I am just stating my opiinion

My 80 year old mom likes these and wears them as a robe and while hanging around the house. I suppose it is more appropriate for answering the door than a bathrobe is. I can also see wearing them when recovering from surgery that either limits mobility or would be painful to have clothing on the site.

I'm more a sweats/yoga pants gal. I don't like the openness of dresses. I feel vulnerable....lol.

I am 66 and I've never worn a housedress in my life, ever.

My Grandmother wore them. With snap buttons on the front. Or big Hawaiian print muu muus, caftan dresses. But, she rarely did any housework, or yard work, either.

I wear a version of the house dress. It's a comfortable shift dress. I generally change when I am ready to go out but I love to pitter patter around the house in my "house dress". I am in my forties and a size four.

That's why, although why one would think that overweight women are the only women who like to wear comfortable clothing is beyond me.

My gf wears a little nightgown around the house at night but sleeps in just underwear.

Unsure if that's diff than a "house dress" but hers is sexy.
