Our favourite ethical pyjamas, nighties and slips to wear to bed and on slow days.
There is probably no better feeling than that of a slow Sunday spent in your pyjamas (no judgment here). Lounging around with a good book or binging on documentaries is probably only beatable by breakfast in bed. If you have outgrown the oversized, faded T-shirt you used to sleep in and are looking to step up your sleepwear game, these are our favourite ethical pyjamas, nighties and slips to cosy up in the comfort of your own home.
