Plus, there are so many cute lounge clothes that are a little different than flannel pjs, but are also very comfortable. You can make GOOD fashion statement and be comfy at the same time.

Same here, it doesn't really bother me but I just don't get it because I could never do it myself. I would feel sloppy.

Pajama bottoms in public is too weird for me. But I am guilty of wearing sweat pants to the store and not looking my best sometimes.

It bothers me a little but it really depends. If it's 4am at WalMart I don't care if people are out and about in their pajamas, but if it's during the day it drives me nuts. Especially when I see a bunch of grown adults in their pajamas at my college. The last thing I want to see in my math class is one middle aged woman in her pajamas.

I have to say I have only seen this a few times but each time I wind up looking in amazement....
We're just not use to it.........We didn't grow up seeing this........and it seems a bit strange.
PJ's were for bedtime.......not for shopping time. I think they just rolled out of bed and haven't showered yet.!!!

I think it all has to do with the frump movement that is going on . I would never dress in my pajama bottoms or sweats . but that is me and to each his own . I see young girls wearing these pajama bottoms out and my husband cringes everytime he sees them so I know from his reaction that he would not like it one bit . I always try to dress accordingly for the occasion . This is just how I feel but dont hold it against anyone if or how they choose to dress .

I've posted my thoughts on this in that women dressing frumpy thread....
I think that PJs, sweats (which amount to PJs), lounge clothes, and workout clothing is inappropriate for public wear (unless you are on our way to/from the gym). It says a LOT about a person, including a lack of respect for those around them. I absolutely cannot stand those matching sweat suits either....what's next, baby onesies for adults? A waistband just might be too uncomfortable...

Seriously, since when are jeans too much effort & not considered casual & comfortable?

Honestly, I haven't seen one where I live. I get uncomfortable going out to get my mail or the paper in the driveway in my PJ's. My 14 yo does not have a problem walking the dog on the block in her PJ bottoms and a tank top...we do read her the riot act over it, but as all teenagers do, in one ear out the other ...la la la la la la. If I did see one, I'd just shrug it off. Their call, no reflection on me.

I wear them to drive my son to school all the time. Of course, I always hope that I don't need to get out of the car and so far so good. Personally I wouldn't wear them to the grocery store, but I saw someone wearing their pj bottoms out this weekend. They were really cute with a super hero print and I now want a pair. LOL
