    Default What does your tween boy wear to sleep?

    DS, age 12, is in flux for pajama options. He's too old for most matched sets, but too small for adult sizes (he is just shy of 5 feet tall), and it seems there is a lack of junior sizes like there are for girls. He is not fixed on any one style, would be happy with a subtle matched set, or sleep pants or shorts paired with a plain t-shirt, preferably cotton. All our usual online sources are either too much polyester or have a too-young print/pattern/graphic. Any leads would be much appreciated!!

    Nothing special. Just regular shorts and a t. Easy enough to find all cotton if you don't limit yourself to pjs department.

    Since about age 6, they wear boxers and undershirt style t-shirts. In the winter, they have flannel pants intead.

    DS wears regular tee shirts to sleep. For bottoms, he wears sweat (or fleece) pants in cold weather and sports-type shorts in warm weather. He hasn't worn proper PJs since he was in 3rd or 4th grade.

    Two wear just underwear unless they are sleeping over or we have company, then they wear flannel pj pants and sometimes an undershirt. One wears just flannel pj pants.

    My two boys haven't had actual pajamas for a long time - since maybe 6 yrs old or so. They wear whatever t shirt they have on and their underwear (boxer briefs). If they are cold, they will add "comfy pants" (pj pants that are flannel-like - typically have sports logos on them) but that is rare. We use a lot of blankets on their beds, so they usually take off pants. In the summer, they will sleep in just their underwear.
