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. This blog post is the first result when I googled “best pyjama bottoms” – great to read it but now the link to the pyjama bottoms is broken! I’m browsing Hush’s website anyway :)

  2. Hi Ruth, I’m a first time poster but am really loving your blog! Not sure if it’s too late to add to this article but I’m thinking about the paige jeans – can I ask if you would wear them ‘daytime’ as well (the website states they are perfect for evening?) Also, wondering if the sizing is pretty standard? Treated myself to some jbrand skinnies last year which I love but I was a size smaller than I would usually be (maybe that’s to make you feel better after spending all that money?!) Thanks!

  3. Thanks Ruth, I’m very tempted to order some. Have you got any idea how their Ugg/Sheepskonboots are? I really need new ones.
