It seems to be stylish to wear them in public. It certainly something you do see these days. So whatever..... but I personally wouldn't feel comfortable doing it. I will go out and get the mail in mine or take the trash out, but that's as public as I want to get with them. I don't feel the same about sweats, however, even though I don't wear them. To me, sweats in public are fine. To me, the hang-up is not that it's too casual or sloppy~ it's just I'm old-fashioned I guess and to me, garments that are intended as "sleepwear" are not worn outside the house.

Yeah, I might have been willing to drive my son to school in them and take the "risk" I might have to get out of the car for some reason, but to do it intentionally, no.

I think it's kind of trendy. You see all the different colors and designs, polka dots, stripes, cartoon characters. I think women just want to be comfortable, and get tired of being "bound" all the time, lol. Doesn't bother me. I wouldn't do it, as I work in scrubs all the time, so on my off time, regular clothes.

This is NOT trendy...it is scummy I don't understand this Walmart way of dressing with giant cartoon characters stretched over your fat ass and and zip up PJ's that are also barely zipping up. If it is cold a filty dirty coat that hasn't been washed in eight or nine years is placed over the whole ensemble followed by a jean purse that has rolled around in fungus for over a decade I'm not even going to go into the sicky skin and what in the hell is going on with the whole body thing

Worrying about what other people are wearing has got to be one of the biggest wastes of time and energy known to mankind, especially as there's far more important BS going on to worry about.

Some have mentioned how much "better dressed" the French are. Guess what? The French work less hours than we do and they tend to walk, cycle and use mass transit far more than we do.

Question! Do people sleep in the pj's, then get up, take a shower and put the pj's back on? Or do they get a fresh pair of pj's to put on for the day?

It is a well known fact that those that shop in PJ's do not look hot I think the larger fatter crowd wears them sometimes they have given up fitting into normal pants.

Something to ponder!!
