In the UK, we had the whole pyjama gate, apparently some dimwit customer thought it was such an issue, he took a photo of a few people shopping in nightwear, and created a fuss on facebook.

There are individual stores that have bans on wearing nightwear, in case it "offended other customers". Basically someone must have put in a complaint, and the store folded.

Well, TLC says they don't want no scrub, cuz a scrub can get no love from them.

Late to this thread, but I can't resist chiming in... My answer to what wear in an "emergency house exit in the middle of the night" - normal clothes!

I have two pairs of pants in very light weight synthetic fabric which are very comfortable in bed. Each has normal pockets and cargo pockets. I usually sleep with my key ring in the right pocket (I am a left side sleeper). If I must get up and get out, I already have on my person a small multitool (PS4), a flashlight, car and house keys and a couple of other items. In colder weather, I also like to wear a fleece jacket to bed. Mine have zip pockets and can hold the key ring, etc. I keep a pair of Crocs at my bedside to slip into when I get out of the sack.

If I must leave the house, I am basically normally clothed and somewhat equipped. I will be even more so, when I reach my car, parked in the driveway. Someday I may be able to report how well this rig works in the event of a nocturnal earthquake.....

Scrubs are a good idea since they are more packable than almost any other clothing. Female pajamas might be sorta sheer and of a gown type. In that case, scrubs make sense.

I agree. Way too much over thinking with scrubs as your get out of the house clothing wear.

Keep a good set of clothes next to your bed or by the door and grab them on the way out. Simple, easy and in the end, everyday clothes are much more durable, warmer and versatile then scrubs will ever be.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

You're overthinking it. Sleep in regular pajamas, keep a pair of shoes next to your bed, and pack a change of clothes in your go bag. If you're not one of a hundred people wandering around in their sleepware, you can use a neighbour's house to get dressed. If you are, just duck behind a car. Modesty standards are probably going to be a bit relaxed.

I can't sleep at all in clothes, and it just seems strange that anyone can. It's not at all difficult to have something draped over a chair near the bed so I'm not worried about being forced naked out of my home.

Usually I have so much draped over the chair that nobody would know there's a chair under there.

I would think scrubs would attract unwanted attention.as in "look a RN lets run over and have her help"
