What do you sleep in? (girls)

Hello! I am going on the Camino for my first time May-June and I can't even focus on anything else because I'm so excited!
I know pretty much what I'm packing but I am curious as to what sort of clothes you sleep in at night? Typically I just sleep in underwear and a tank top... but with a sleeping bag, I always somehow manage to find myself twisted out of it in the morning, so I'm concerned about ending up on top laying in nothing but underwear and a tank top for everyone to see. Its probably a stupid question, but I really don't want to pack more than I need to, especially since most of the stuff I'm bringing is multipurpose. But should I bring a pair of shorts for sleeping in?

Oh and also, with changing/getting dressed... is that just an open event? I'm a pretty private person in regards to changing in front of others... so what is that protocol?

Any thoughts would be helpful!! :)

I slept in my underwear and tank top.
Believe me, everyone's too tired to worry about what you have on.
Just wear your underclothes or the clothes you'll walk in next day.
Go LIGHT! :)

I also sleep in the clothes I'm wearing the next day as this saves on weight and space.

People change in their sleeping bags, in the bathroom, next to their bunk. There is an unwritten code amongst pilgrims that you don't look at anyone who is dressing/undressing. It's amazing just how much privacy there can be in a crowded room.

May June is a lovely time to walk el camino.
If you would like to wear something different to sleep in (some people perspire a lot) try a lighweight runners vest with 'quantek' fabric at the top and mesh netting at the bottom. They weigh about 38g and dry very quickly.
