There is a television advertisement that reminds us of Marilyn Monroe’s famous response when asked what she wore to bed.
‘Just a few drops of Chanel No 5′
iVillage have done it again with an article that caught my attention about the sleeping habits of the British vs their American cousins.
Apparently, 30% of Brits sleep in their birthday suits. Ruf is amongst them for most of the year. When it gets really cold, he does don a tshirt, longjohns and socks. For myself, I love being naked. I even wash up, hoover and dust without clothing wherever possible. However, staying warm whilst I am asleep is a problem. I have an electric blanket so that it is at least warm when I get in. But, as the autumn draws in, I find myself donnig a variety of different sleepwear.
Pyjamas and ‘sacks’ as Ruf likes to call them – voluminous cotton tshirts – and socks.
He doesn’t care. He just doesn’t want my cold feet on his warm legs.
The article talks about how sleeping naked can help with health and confidence.
I love our skin against each other as we spoon ourselves to sleep.
But then the blanket has to stay on all night and I won’t sleep because I’m worried about electrical fires.
Not so good for health or confidence.
So what do you wear to bed?
