A study by a hotel chain has revealed that millions of us get in to our night clothes as soon as we get in from work. Researchers found one in ten adults in Britain put on their sleepwear immediately after they arrive home from work. The chain polled over 2,000 adults on their nightwear habits and revealed that just under half the nation are at their happiest when lounging around in their pyjamas. No wonder onesies have become popular as the line between casual wear and sleep wear is blurred.
The poll also found the typical Brit slips on their sleepwear attire at precisely 9.11pm. With nearly a quarter of the nation admitting to having spent the entire weekend in their PJs on more than one occasion.
The survey revealed British women have opted for a more laid back approach to their sleep attire, with 17 per cent of the women polled admitting to wearing an ‘old’ nightie or just a t-shirt, whilst 18 per cent of the men polled wear pyjamas and the rest choosing to wear just boxer shorts and a t-shirt or nothing at all. It seems that the women polled had good intentions when they first met their partner to wear more attractive sleep wear, but on average, eight months into the relationship women become more relaxed and replace their pretty camisoles for scruffy pyjamas or adult onesies.
In fact, the only time we tend to make an effort in our night attire is when staying at a hotel with 34 per cent of respondents admitting to taking their best nightwear if they are staying away from home. A further one in five go out and buy brand new sleepwear if they have to stay in a hotel. And quarter of those said it’s because it’s usually a special occasion and a paranoid 15 per cent said they want respectable nightwear in case they get spotted by hotel staff. Had any embarrassing moments when the fire alarm has gone off in a hotel?
