Traditional pyjamas are back in style – and a survey proposes a large portion of UK plan to wear their PJs throughout the day on Christmas Day. Less than 30 percent of 2,000 people surveyed by the supermarket chain Asda say they will try to dress for dinner on Christmas Day, with 51 percent staying in their pyjamas for all day.
George at Asda has reported a sharp ascent in sales of traditional two-piece pyjamas which, first ever in three years, surpassed the onesie to take the top nightwear spot. Robe sales are up 200 percent, with South Wales pinpointed as the most laid back locale, stocking up on more nightwear than anyplace else during Christmas.
The elderly are the least likely to dress up for the Christmas, with 45 percent wearing what they would on any other day while just about 61 percent feel obliged to wear a clothing gift they received. George At Asda said sales of novelty jumpers keep on ascending, up 32 percent year on year.
However, one in six individuals (16 percent) will go to additional lengths on Christmas Day, switching outfits up to three times: opening presents in nightgown, changing for supper and afterward yet again for family visits (10 percent).
The South East is eating up the most formal wear with Berkshire set to be suited and booted. A representative for George at Asda said that anything goes on Christmas Day, be it night robe, sequins, a sewed jumper or extravagant dress, the primary concern is that everybody feels great and has fun.
