Hi,

I'm going to do a Tour du Mont Blanc with my girdfriend and she's curious what girls use as a nightdress in a dorm?

Thanks in advance.

Darn tootin it will!

Firstly, we'll need some pics. We can't evaluate what might suit her...

But something from here would probably do:

On a serious note, everyone seems to wear the baselayer that they're going to wear the following day, both blokes and women. That's certainly what I do. Can't see why the ladies would do anything different.

Honestly, I also do baselayer top half and a pair of really lightweight shorts on the bottom!!!!

Depending on temperature I either where a pair of running tights and a l/s lifa (which will double up as emergency thermals) or a pair of very lightweight running shorts with built in mesh jockey area and a coolmax T!!! :-)

From memory on the TMB there are ladies loos in the Gites/Huts where you can get changed. Remember every bit of kit/clothing has to earn it's place in your back pack so whatever she want's to kip in will have to do other jobs too.

All I've ever seen is knickers and t-shirt.
I'd guess you'd have folk falling over laughing/sniggering if she actually donned a night dress for real.

Hi,
No nightie! hanging around in high mountain huts in the evening I wear my thermal bottoms and a t-shirt. Then to sleep it's bra and knickers. I prefer a sports bra of the type that are pull over the head (eg nike) - they are very comfy for sleeping in, but also for walking - no clasp to rub against my back when wearing a rucksack for long periods of time.
Hope that helps.

To quote Derek & Clive (IIRC)

Oh little Flo! I love you so,
Especially in your nightie.
When the moonlight flits
Across your tits
Oh Jesus Christ Almighty!

Maxim, I don't know why you are asking British alpinists what ladies wear at night in Alpine huts. British alpinists are gentlemen and would never look at a lady in her underwear.

A post on a French or Italian website might yield more information about undressed or partly dressed ladies.

In reply to jon: I know it was on the derek and clive live album but did Spike Milligan write it??

In reply to manumartin:

Hmmm, looks like you're right. Written by Dud. I certainly remember Spike reciting it and assumed it was his. The sort of stuff you tend to associate with him - like his poem 'Rain':

There are holes in the sky
Where the rain gets in,
But they're ever so small
That's why rain is thin.

In reply to jon: Epic verse (or possibly epic worse), worthy of the late, great Mcgonagall.

In the meantime, can any one be a bit more precise about what ladies do (or don't) wear in huts at night? Luca perhaps?

In reply to mt:
In Europe there is less concern about what people do or don't wear in huts than you would get here.

Sleep naked, sleep fully dressed for the day ahead, sleep in your undies, sleep in t-shirt and shorts - nobody seems to mind. Unless of course the hut is crowded and there are ten of you sleeping on a platform designed for six, in which case sleeping naked with no sleeping bag would be considered poor form, whether you were a man or a woman.

Of course, not everyone is going for the summit tomorrow. So what people DO mind is you getting up at silly o'clock and then rustling through supermarket carrier bags getting out of your night things and putting on your climbing garb. Noisy faff whilst other people are trying to sleep is a sure-fire way to upset folks.
