You would think it’s common fashion sense to not wear pajamas in public, but a trip to your local grocery store will show you otherwise. Recently, Louisiana lawmaker Michael Williams pushed to make it against the law to wear pajamas in public.
“Pajamas are designed to be worn in the bedroom at night,” says Williams. “The moral fiber in our community is dwindling. Today it’s pajamas, tomorrow it’s underwear. Where does it stop?”
In January 2010, a grocery store in the UK banned people from shopping in their pajamas and were met by outraged customers. “It is ridiculous and stupid,” one PJ wearing 24-year-old mom said. “I’ve worn my best ones today, just so I look tidy. … You see loads of people going in wearing jogging bottoms, what’s the difference?”
Weigh in — is it socially acceptable to wear pajamas in public?
I’m with Williams — pajamas are for the bedroom. When you go out, take a minute to swap those PJ bottoms for a comfortable alternative. As Jax said on Pinterest, it takes just as much effort to put on nice clothes.
