Your guy loves you, but that doesn’t mean he has to like that frumpy night gown you keep wearing to bed. And those holey socks he wore last night (and every night before that)? Not OK! But for some reason, you (and a whole lot of other marrieds) keep committing fashion crimes night after night. To find the worst offenders out there, we asked our readers to dish on the un-sexiest things their partners have worn to bed. From frumpy flannel dresses (on husbands!) to black knee-socks, their answers made us want to wear sleep masks.

“Flannel Smurf pajamas.” – Candace V.

“Socks. He always tries to keep socks on when we’re…well, you know.” – Kelsea B.

“My husband hates my onesie, but it keeps me nice and warm!” – Barbara K.

“When my hubby wears his Clippers shirt (I’m a Lakers fan).” – Celia L.

“A flannel dress – he calls it his man dress!” – Thalia C.

“MY sweatpants that he just happened to put on by ‘accident’.” – Megan S.

“His holey briefs from 4 years ago that he just can’t seem to part with! There’s more holes than actual fabric/coverage at this point.” – Hannah B.

“Mint chocolate chip ice cream he dribbled down himself eating dessert before bed!” – Melisa B.

“He makes fun of me when I wear two Snuggies – one on my back and one on my front. But hey, he wears a Ninja Turtles shirt that says ‘Turtley Awesome’. I think we’re even.” – Taryn L.

“A pair of very old and stretched out smiley face boxers.” – Robin S.
