The Best Pyjama Bottoms Ever

fashion and beauty blog

A while back, I bought you the best thong ever.

(For those who have not yet had the pleasure of experiencing one, a thong is a god-awful bit of narrow fabric that lingerie designers think you’ll want to have between your bottom cheeks, like some kind of ornate, lacy cheese-wire.) (If you want to know where to find the best skinny jeans ever, then have a look at Paige Verdugo on Donna Ida. The black overdyed version are so comfy and flattering.)

Now, I bring you the world’s best pyjama bottoms.

You’d think that designing a pyjama bottom would be easy, yet so many brands get it wrong! I just cannot abide a badly designed pyjama – it’s supposed to be the most comfortable thing you can put on, for crying out loud! Either they are too “close” in the crotch (you know what I mean – it’s cheese-wire all over again), or the waistband is too tight, or too loose. The fabric is wrong; shiny, sweaty, too furry, too silky. The cut of the leg is off – too tapered, too flared, too narrow. The pattern is ridiculous – who wants to look like a five-year old in cartoon elephants?! Or the style is ageing – lacy satin edging, anyone?

No, the perfect pyjama is an art, and I present to you the HUSH pyjama. Straight, wide leg that hangs from the hips just so; subdued yet pretty fabric patterns that look neither too chintzy nor too juvenile; lots of room in the ahem area without looking too “MC Hammer”… Can this design be improved upon? I think not. Unless they could please make a few more patterns in dark fabrics, as pale colours aren’t always practical for us ladies all the month round!

What do you reckon? Can you find better? I hope not, as I’m about to order another three pairs! Let me know in the comments box, please. If you want to have a browse around the HUSH collection, click here. The pyjama bottoms are £30/£45 each – mine are the “antique floral”. You’ll see them again in Friday’s post, but I can’t tell you why, not yet. Let’s just say you’ll really want to get home quickly on Friday night!

(So many of you asking about the oversized knit blankets and cushions – you can find them here:  http://goo.gl/77fHk

  1. They look so comfy and those socks! Yummy. What about the top you’re wearing? Looks like a sweat shirt, where is it from?

  2. Would love to know whether the pyjama sets are any good too?!

  3. Love your writing! Hmm… cheese wire. I learned something new today!
    I wear shorts all year round though…

  4. Wow they look amazing! May I ask if you picked up size XS or S/M? Am not sure which one to choose, and I am a european size 36. Thank you! And very lovely and cozy picture :)

  5. Yes they are very comfy and warm (I even bought them for my husband!), though Gap ones are pretty good too. I LOVE your cushions and bed spread, where are they from?

    Hi Ruth, My beef with the perfect pyjama bottom is that they’re always too short, giving me that attractive ‘half-mast’ look, as if I had a growth spurt overnight. Can you let me know the inner leg measurement for the Hush ones? I can’t see any info on the website. Thanks,

  7. Oh gosh, the quest for PJ bottoms… I wear soft grey men’s XS jogging bottoms at the moment (very cold up North at present!) and they’re good for not being … cheese-wire-esque, and not being half-masts. My most common problem with PJ bottoms is that they either cut into my hips or hang off them, as they rely on silly drawstring or thin elastic. I wear them with one of my skinny-fit Fruit of the Loom long sleeve tees, and it’s a very cosy combo indeed, without looking like some child/ill person/Jeremy Kyle guest…

  8. I’ve been buying from Hush for years now! Its seems they’re suddenly becoming popular!! I have a ton of their stuff including everything your wearing in the pic! I can’t even get on with your thong rec!!! Wore one for a day in Paris and ended up in Wolfords!! Cant find the Paige jeans in a size 23. The Paige black coated edgemonts are fab tho!

  9. Great post! I’m still on the search of the perfect pj bottom still…maybe i give it a try then :)…even if i always wanted to try the victorias secret ones! beside of the pj…im in love with the cushions and the throw!!!! where are they from?! thanx Ruth :)
