Sooo.... then what's the qualifier? Are we JUST talking about the baggy, cotton, printed pants? Matching pants/button up cotton shirts?

Does it matter how attractive you are? I mean, I see a lot of people complaining about 'fat' or 'pot bellied' people wearing pjs out in public, would they be as angry if it was a skinny, fit, 20 year old woman?

There just seem to be so many rules about what you are allowed to wear in public.

I am wearing one right now laying down in bed with a t shirt and long sleeves on top. So comfy to wear on a cold night. I sleep in long sleeves and pajamas from Mid September to Mid June. Feel free to step into my bedroom anytime during those months as I am covered completely .

It is not just that it looks odd if people walk around in stores with pajamas, it also gives me the chills to think that they wore the SAME stuff in bed and WILL again the next night. It just seems pretty dirty to me, or am I totally off here? Help me understand ...
You're right on target.

Most sane people don't think 'Oh, that person has on some nice silk pajamas, so they aren't that crazy after all.' They immediately think something like 'Good God, how can anyone with self-respect wear their pajamas as a piece of normal clothing in public.' They make no distinctions, no matter what you think.
Ironic.

I bet my house you're just fine and dandy with concealed carry.

Now that, I find offensive and indicative of a disturbed personality, but I bet you think its justified and "normal" and non-kooky.

I know I said I was kidding. I stopped wearing them at Walmart, I'm tired of kids thinking I was a big fat bunny.

My gosl isn't to be attractive to strangers at the supermarket,but I notice I do get better customer service when I'm dressed up vs being in scrubs.
Like today,I wore my glasses and had on my scrubs,because I ust worked a 12 hr shift. The cashier(a guy). Just slapped the change in my hand ..no hello,have great day,nothing.
Its unfair.

Do you really not know what pajamas are?

And before you say it, yes there are women wearing tshirts and tanktops in those links. Its the fact that they are paired with actual pajama pants, or are matching the pants, or have some logo on them that give it away that they are pajamas.
