WHY, OH WHY????????????????

You know, all I want is a pair of non-sexy PJs that are my voluptuous size and AREN'T EFFING PINK (or any other foul pastel colour (or white), but especially pink), TRIMMED WITH PINK or stamped with a picture of a cute cartoon animal (Sanrio not included, as Hello Kitty would be acceptable). Why is this so EFFING IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!

I'm not even asking for ones with skulls or pentagrams on (which would be perfect but only exist in my dreams). Just plain black would do!

Look in the men's section. Womens pj are usually the pits.

*nods* Gap Body occasionally has suitable elements (a top, or a pair of pants; their "sleep shorts" are quite fun sometimes), but if you try to shop for a Set of Women's Pyjamas, and you're excluding the aforementioned criteria, you're mostly out of luck.

pajamagram.com has non-pink non-sexy PJs in lots of sizes. (they have pink and sexy ones too, though, be warned)

And I got fun jack skellington PJs from here:

The first one has some nice things, but they don't ship to Europe (and are ultra expensive with the exchange rate) alas.

The second one is giving me a headache!

I have a thing for proper red tartan pyjamas (I now own several pairs), but you only ever seem to be able to find them at Christmas. I really don't understand people who make pyjamas... There's a real niche in the marketplace waiting to be exploited and no one's filling it!!

Tartan would involve colour! I might be traumatised!

I'm more of a cobbled together tank top and knickers sort, I tend to thrash and get tangled in nightdresses and PJs but I might have to share a room with my parents so I thought I'd better get something decent.

Well, you could always buy designer nightwear...

Or black satin...

Or you could buy two-packs of bottoms and camisole tops, one of each pair coming in black.

I agree, though. Try and find a dressing gown in purple or black, for that matter. In any size.


I was thinking under a tenner. :)

I have dressing gowns in purple and black, but one has a hole in it and is so long I trip over it, and the other is a bit short, but I couldn't find replacements. However, they do have a black, long one at Simply Be at the mo.

Is there an Old Navy in the UK? They would have something like what you're after. They usually have darker colours and non-cute patterns.

Look for separates instead of PJ sets. I wear what they call sleep or lounge pants (pants in the US meaning, not the UK meaning) with comfy t-shirts or tank tops. I can usually find them in plain colors or not-too-hideous patterns.

i.e. Something like this: http://www.freshpair.com/Hanes-Plus-Size-Organic-Sleep-Pant-FDPT-Plus.html

It's pretty much what I do, and what I will do, I just fancied a set for a change. This was more of a rant that a call for for help really! :D

I usually wear GapBody yoga pants in either black, grey or navy and a t-shirt. They're not exactly pajamas but they're loose and comfy.

This is going to sound extremely counter-intuitive given the criteria you've listed, but have you tried Soma Intimates or Victoria's Secret ?

Although, I didn't think about the fact that you're in the UK. They may not be available.

They're available, but the shipping alone is more than I was looking to pay for the whole lot.

The first ones are hideous, the second aren't bad but that's about three times my budget! And you can't go near fires. :)
