Nobody here is telling you that you CAN'T wear this stuff in public, people are just expressing their opinion which is their right to do, that it looks tacky and lazy. If you don't care what people think, then that's fine. However, we still have the right to express our opinions about it, and people WILL judge you based on how you present yourself.
Kevin said it wasn't "acceptable" if you don't call that trying to tell me what I shouldn't (note: I never said can't in my original post, I said shouldn't) wear then I'm not really sure what to say. I'm fully aware you can think what you like about it, just realize, I couldn't care less. So if you want to waste your energy worrying about my pants, by all means, go right ahead.

Yes, this drives me absolutely bonkers, I used to do that when I was in High School. Where the classy ladies at.

Wearing PJ`s in public is sloppy in general, regardless of body size.
If you did this in the UK you`d be laughed at, it`s severe laziness.

So it's not okay to be sloppy, in the UK, but it's okay to be rude? That's just dandy.

I don't live in the UK, so why should I care what's laughable over there?

Oh geeze, enough with the "people are trying to force or barring " kick. Nothing has been said about forcing anyone. If it bothers me, it bothers me. Is it so detrimental to you ? Practice what you preach. If this thread is that upsetting to you, then maybe you shouldn't read it. It's not that hard, right ?

Let me guess, you're one of those tween aged girls that wears your pj bottoms out in public and think it's cute. Am I right ? For someone who could care less what I or anyone else thinks, you're sure defensive and getting rather touchy about it.

Thanks for your permission. If you want to continue wasting YOUR energy defending yourself to a lot of people who disagree with you, go right ahead. It's not going to stop anyone from expressing their opinions, whether you agree with them or not.

That's cool; I'm NOT in the UK, so no worries.

And before all of you guys go all stupid thinking I am wearing some fleece printed pants all day long; it's not like that. When I say yoga/lounge/sleep pants this is what I mean.

So if I get laughed at for that, oh well. Laziness is the LAST thing I am, in fact I am too busy most days; and due to that I want to be comfy. You really can't be comfy when you have a 100+lb dog ramming their back paws into a zipper or buttons in your lap, lol! (not to mention your range of motion is limited in jeans compared to yoga pants)

No actually, I'm not a teen and I don't even own pj pants anymore, I prefer nightshirts. The few times I have worn such things in public were when I was sick. That's why I said I sometimes wear them.

I'm fine and dandy with you expressing your opinion. However, when you whine on a public forum you shouldn't be surprised when people think your opinion is ridiculous.

I make rash judgments about people all the time. For example I think people who are so concerned with my pants are laughably shallow and/ or well.... kinda creepy. The difference between you and I is that I can recognize that my rash judgments, especially about such shallow things, are often wrong.

As I said, I don't care much. I, frankly, just find this thread amusing.

And my response to you again is, practice what you preach, take a look in the mirror, clean up your backyard and all those other cliches. Or do these rules only apply to me because I stand up to you ? If anyone is whining around here it's YOU with all your "I don't care if you like it or not, you can't force people to stop", etc. Please. I will continue to speak my opinion. Don't like it ? Don't read the thread anymore.

LOL !! You seem to have a higher opinion of yourself than anyone else here in this thread. Nobody here cares about YOUR pants. This is a general discussion.

Yes it shows. You respond to everything I or anyone else says to you defensively and in an condenscending manner.


Back on topic, I recently saw a episode of What Not To Wear where a young woman was doing the pj thing out in public, the belly shirt that showed a roll, the bra straps showing under a spaghetti strapped top. Stacy and Clinton had a ball with her.
