Many foreign tourists are surprised and delighted to see many Vietnamese women, especially in the countryside, wearing pyjamas on the street.
Actually, we don’t call them pyjamas but Đồ Bộ in Vietnamese.
As they are very comfortable to wear, the majority of Vietnamese women love them. Accordingly, they choose them as a daily outfit. They use it as the main clothes for daily activities from home routines to gardening, farming, even going to parties and markets.
My mom is an example.
Apart from Áo Dài, her wardrobe is now full of Đồ Bộ. She loves them because they are very soft to wear, they look cool and fit her well.
Sometimes I say a joke to her “Mom, you should wear Đồ Bộ to participate in the Milan Fashion Week. I’m sure you would become famous thanks to these clothes” 😂
She said “Exactly! btw your mother is beautiful no matter what she wears hahaha” I cannot agree more.
