Do you and or your DD sleep without underwear?

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
Do you and your DD sleep without underwear?Since it's just the 3 of us girls DD6&DD9 we just sleep with nothing on.Unless when the weather is cold we just wear a nighshirt without underwear under it most of the time.

My DDs wear a nightshirt like this one..Or sometimes just a long nightshirt when having a friend over for sleepover..

In our household since it's just 3 of use girls including me, casual nudity isn't an issue that both of my girls including me we don't wear any underwear just to be comfortable.When the weather is hot they wear nothing to bed.



I'm wondering if this is common especially here in America since I was raised in a household indoor European standards of modesty lifestyle since both of my parents are European born immagrants now living in Canada..

We all wear PJs to bed (I looooove PJs, and we all have lots of them), but we don't wear underwear underneath.

I thought that was normal because it's how I grew up, but my SIL was here a few weeks ago and saw me getting my DS dressed for bed, and she expressed surprise that he doesn't wear underwear under his PJs. I got a confused look on my face and told her that I don't either and she didn't say anything, so I thought maybe we're just weird.

I don't have daughters. I used to not wear underwear to bed but now I wear underwear because I don't like waking up with a foot nestled in an awkward place. I mostly wear just underwear to bed though unless I'm really cold or something.

I grew up (in USA) in a household with similar ideas toward nudity. My mother wasn't shy about walking around naked and now in my own house I'm pretty casual about clothes (especially now - 3rd trimester, summer, 'nuff said) and my DD isn't required to wear anything she doesn't want to....being naked is nice. Sometimes comfy jammies feel really good and under those circumstances I'll wear them....but naked feels best to me most of the time for sleeping...so we go with that. DD MUCH prefers sleeping naked with no covers, even when it feels WAY too cold to me in the room, she's just like her Dada!

So...yeah, we be nude in our sleepings! DD wears her dipe, but that's it and I don't wear anything. Dada usually wears a tshirt, but nothing else.

I have woken up with a foot nestled in an ackward spot...but my love of naked sleeping outweighs my pain at a little toenail scratching something not meant to be scratched (omg, EVER!)...and so, we press on as per usual: naked and lovin' it!

I definitely don't sleep in underwear. Poor dd is still stuck in a diaper but no undies for my ds while sleeping! I think sleeping in underwear is killer uncomfortable and growing up my mom told me you needed to give your parts a chance to breathe at night--girl or boy. I totally agree and tell my ds the same thing when he's putting his PJs on.

I would say I wear undies about half the time - but when I do, it's all I wear. I cannot tolerate wearing anything else to sleep.

DD, she usually wears PJ's and undies.

I didn't hear about airing out and not wearing underwear at night until I was a grown up, and honestly, it seems kinda odd to me

Unless we're out somewhere in public during the day, I don't really care if my kids wear underwear. Actually, if they are wearing long pants, I don't care even if we are leaving the house. I sometimes go commando during the day, and at night I have no real uniform. Sometimes I go to bed fully dressed, with underwear, bra, pajamas. Sometimes I wear just underpants. Sometimes I'm naked. And any combination of the above. I just don't think it's a big deal being dressed for sleeping.

None of us wear underwear when we sleep. Our bodies need to breathe!

no nothing in bed and I walk around the upstairs naked, as does my husband, when going to bed and waking up - let's be clear here!!

While I would love to sleep naked again (and DH would love it to), one or both kids frequently still ends up in bed with us and that makes me uncomfortable, so I wear panties to bed. But nothing else unless it is freezing (this is San Diego, so like maybe 2x a year). Lately its been really hot and the kids have worn undies/boxers to bed, but nothing else. In slightly cooler weather they will switch to PJs or a nightgown without undies. Our rule is you have to have somthing that covers your genitals if you get into bed with anyone else. If they sleep in their own bed all night they are welcome to sleep nude and DS sometimes does.

Nothing under my night shirt over here. Things need to breathe & I find if I wear underwear too long I get irritated along the elastic lines.

I usually wear underwear. I just find it more comfortable. When I was eight or nine my mom suggested that I start sleeping without underwear, but I didn't like it.

Both DDs always wear underwear with nightgowns, and most of the time with PJs, though not always. They're 4 and 5 and don't always do a fantastic job wiping so the underwear serves a hygienic purpose with that. As well, they'll go outside and play in the morning in their pjs, in our very visible backyard, and they really have no modesty at all. I imagine that our neighbours appreciate them wearing underwear with their nightgowns.

My mum told me that too!

I also recall, hearing years ago about a Japanese study on sleeping with underwear. I can't remember the details. It was definitely negative though. Something about how the elastic waistband affects digestion or circulation or something.....


so no underwear here

I don't like to sleep in clothes. Sometimes in the winter I wear a long chemise that I made, nothing underneath. And I did grow up in the US. has nothing to do with my upbringing, just my personal preference.

I wear boxers or pj pants to bed, but I don't wear underwear underneath. A lot of the underwear I wear wouldn't be the most comfy to sleep in. I'm more comfortable these days sleeping in clothes so I don't often sleep naked anymore.

i wear some kind of bottoms to bed (shorts, longs etc.) but no underwear. dh sleeps buff. ds1 wears pj's but no undies to bed. most summer days ds1 wears no underpants under his shorts or whatever esp if we're going to be home all day. ds2 is still in diapers but he'll prolly go ds1's way when he's older. i just find the whole elastic thingies on underwear too uncomfy during the day even, so definitely not at night.

I was raised between Great Britian and USA, but that doesn't really matter since my parents, my mom especially since she's really the one that raised us, was very prude and strict and controlling and overprotective.

Both my husband and I sleep completely nude. My daughters still both wear diapers to bed because they can't control their bladders while they sleep.

I don't have a DD but that wouldn't affect my choice. I HAVE to wear underwear and I also wear a bra. I feel too uncomfortable without. Hubby just wears pj bottoms.
