What parent hasn’t zipped their child into warm fleece footie pajamas on a cold winter night and thought, “hey, I wouldn”t mind having a set for myself”?
It’s not as far off a concept as it might seem. There are many companies that sell footie pajamas for adults.
The concept of footie pajamas is simple. Instead of sleeping in a T and shorts or a nightie or two-piece flannel PJs, the footie pajama wearer steps into a one piece fleece, flannel or knit “romper-style” piece of clothing. The feet are attached and you simply zip or snap yourself all the way from leg to neck. Many consider these the ultimate in comfort and warmth.
Some people who report being always cold in the winter find they turn to footie pajamas for additional warmth. Depending on your climate, you can layer under the pajamas and add the pajamas as a final layer for warmth. Some footie pajamas are available without feet for those who prefer to sleep without anything on their feet.
