If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen that I’ve recently been in hospital and I’m now feet up at home in recovery mode.
“Why?” You may ask, well, I finally had my gallbladder removed last week after going through nearly two years of the most agonising pain I’ve ever experienced in my life, so I am bloody relieved to have the thing out and be on the road to recovery.
For the first couple of days I wasn’t able to move out of bed as I was so sore and bruised but over the last few days I’ve managed to migrate to the sofa with my laptop and have spent my days online window shopping, catching up on lots of my favourite blogs and getting excited about outfit ideas. I felt fueled with outfit inspiration and was going to put together a wishlist full of things I want to style for when I’m up and about again, however I think my current daily routine of pyjamas stifled my creativity.
After having a bit of a think I remembered back to just before I went in for my op when I had spent an evening scouring the internet for a new pair of PJ’s to take into hospital with me (because there was zero chance of getting a decent bit of size 24 nightwear on the high street). I remembered how it had dawned on me at the time how bleak it is still just trying to get basic plus size items like pyjamas, nightwear, underwear. Everywhere I looked had tonnes and tonnes of butterfly and floral embellished monstrosities or things emblazoned with ridiculous slogans like ‘I’m Nutty’ (really?). It was so hard to get just a cool pair of plus size PJ’s that weren’t made for my 90 year old grandmother, so I thought I’d do a little roundup of the faves that I did find along the way on that search that night…

Where are your go to’s for plus size basics like nightwear? I’d love to know!
