A nightshirt is a garment intended for wear while sleeping, often with a nightcap. It is longer than most regular shirts, reaching down below the knees, leaving some of the legs uncovered. It is often referred to as a nightgown for men, but nowadays, nightshirts are an optional sleepwear for women too.
In the US, it also sometimes means a shirt, slightly longer than a regular shirt, reaching down to the thighs, worn as loungewear and nightwear. Traditional nightshirts are used just for nightwear, removed and stored away for next use upon waking. This other, non-traditional type is worn with pajama bottoms.
Until the 16th century men slept naked or in a day-shirt. Nobles in the 16th century then wore embroidered shirts or \"wrought night-shirts\". By the 19th century the night-shirt resembled a day-shirt with a loose, turned-down collar and similar length as a nightgown. In those days, nightshirts were often made of ruined or very cheap fabric, however, most nightshirts are now made with normal cloth to fit the sleeping purpose.

THERE is a bench in the middle of town where lots of conversation goes on while people sit waiting for the bus. Two executive-type codgers sharing a newspaper were sitting there recently, probably retired from a large banking firm, so I moved closer hoping to hear some useful information. ``Nightshirts are coming back,'' said the one with crisp mustache and horn-rimmed glasses, obviously a bank president. 59ce067264
