What is accepted behaviour in refugios re night attire?

I certainly won't be packing pyjamas, nor would I want to sleep in my clothes, so there is a question of decency to consider - as well as not offending fellow pilgrims. :?

I assume underpants and/or dextrous donning and undonning of a towel will suffice :?:

I slept in undies and got out of my sleeping bag thus. Some females tried to get fully clothed whilst still in their sleeping bag-result?-lots of curious looks, rustling and took three times as long.

Actually...get into my sleeping bag wearing one of my two synthetic t-shirts, underpants at hand for whenever I got up. When sleeping on top of my sleeping bag, deginitely wear t-shirt + one of my three underpants. Best, xm 8)

Bob, I'm female and sleep in the clothes I'm walking in the next day. My clothes are going to be crumpled the next day as it is, so am happy to wear them at night.

Some people do take additional clothes for sleeping eg t-shirt and shorts, but I can't see the point in carrying the extra weight. Lots of pilgrims, both men and women, sleep in their underwear, and this is quite acceptable. You just don't look when others are dressing/undressing.

Info much appreciated

Thx for the helpful feedback. Commonsense and respect for others' privacy seem to be the way to go.

18 sleeps (plus an economy 27-hour nightmare in the sky) to go!

My dear friend Dawn of a New Day gave me a great tip regarding night attire for the ladies. Get a men's silk shirt from a thrift store or buy one new, they weigh nothing to pack and keep you covered when you're not dressed. She burned hers when she got to Finistere.

For some reason the thought of sleeping in my clothes then wearing them the next day doesn't appeal to me and we Canadians tend to be a little on the modest side :!:

Call me dirty, but I just wore what I'd be walking in the next day... Having showered previously, of course.

Ah, may be a matter of preference, don't think it's "guarro," Spanish (in Spain), for "dirty :!: " But then... :lol: Best, xm 8)

I just make sure I take a shower EVERY SINGLE DAY upon arrival at the refugio. (Most Filipinos do it twice in a day, in the morning and at night.) The mornings are just too cold, and the feet might get soft.

What is worrisome is some pilgrims don't even bother to take a shower and/or wash their clothes at all. I've seen one guy wearing the same red courduroy shorts for walking every day. Ewww.
