Why a woman was mocked by her husband for wearing these pyjama pants to bed.

When it comes to sleepwear, one thing’s for sure – comfort is key.

Whether it’s a pair of fancy Peter Alexander pyjama pants or a ratty old t-shirt, everyone has their favourite clothes to sleep in.

But for one woman, her comfy sleepwear choices were criticised – by her husband.

Posting to internet forum Mumsnet, the woman shared how her husband mocked her pyjamas for not being “sexy enough”.

“How many of you actually dress up nicely in bed?” the woman posted on Mumsnet.

“I’m doing an informal survey on behalf of my twat of a husband who told me that the attached pyjama bottoms are not sexy enough bedtime attire for me to wear when I get in to bed, on the off chance that we may have sex (we are trying to conceive so that’s happening more regularly than normal at the moment),” she added alongside a photo of the offending pyjamas.

"Am I unreasonable to wear something like this before bed or even god forbid, TO bed, when I know intercourse is on the cards?" she asked.

Mumsnet users were quick to respond to the thread. But it's clear that women were very divided over this one.

"I'd use those as a method of contraception. But I see you're trying to conceive, so..." one user wrote.

"No point it ends up on the floor after 2.5 seconds," another wrote.

Many users sided with the woman, questioning why the husband would question his wife's sleepwear.

"I don't generally wear pjs but when I do they're very similar to yours! I agree it sounds like he's being a twat. Does he dress up for bed? Doubt it," one woman commented.

"I think this is crazy, since when do men feel it's OK to tell women what to wear in bed. I love comfy baggy pjs," another said.

"Any man who told me how I should dress for him in bed (or anywhere else) would be sleeping in the spare room," one woman said.
