Do you wear slippers when you're in your bedroom?

I always wear my slippers on but my husband prefers to have barefoot while inside our bedroom. He told me that it relaxes him and jokingly tells me the he is preserving his slippers because he don't want to worn it out. I really find it weird and would really like to know if this is normal? If anyone out there is also like him ... or simply like me. Please share.

I love being barefoot! When I am at home, I rarely have shoes on! If I could get away with it other place, I wouldnt wear shoes hardly at all! I think there are a lot of people on both sides of the slipper issue. My mother-in-law thinks I am crazy. She swears that my feet must always be cold! My friend's mom always swears I am going to get sick. I just feel more comfortable and relaxed without slippers on. They just dont seem necessary to me!

I don't wear a slippers in my bedroom. My bedroom has a fine carpet so I find uneasy wearing a slippers and I avoid it, my husband too don't wear slippers in the bedroom. In fact I don't allow anyone. It is a common sense who ever comes to see my bedroom even once they too don't wear a slippers. My bedroom is a divine place to me. I love my bedroom. It is always neat and clean. I love to be barefoot in te bedroom.

No, I don't wear slippers, I'm a socks kinda gal! I also am barefoot a lot of the time, too, but lately the heels of my feet have been getting very dry and rough, so I've taken to putting cream on my feet and socks over and even wearing them to bed.

That is a great a advice - putting cream and socks on your feet for dry and rough surfaces. Actually, I am also having this problem the past week. I'll try to wear socks after putting cream. Happy myloting.

I wear slippers all the time, I've got em on now! I'll wear them everywhere in my house. I hate wearing socks, so i only wear them if i am wearing shoes that require socks. Summers, it's flip flops outside, barefeet inside unless it's chilly and i can wear my slippers. Winters, whatever shoes/boots and socks i'm wearing comes off when i get home, and the slippers go on, and stay on until i go to bed

Wear slipper is must for me, because I am living in a old house without good fitment, the floor is dirty. so I must wear shoes or slipper instead of barefooted.

I wear my slippers all the time at home when it's cold enough to wear them. I've always worn slippers, but when i was younger, i'd only wear them with my pajamas. After i spent 2 years living in a dorm, where you pretty much have to have something on your feel all the time i really picked up the habit of wearing them all the time no matter what else i'm wearing. It works out for me since i always have cold feet when it's cold!

I am always barefoot inside my bedroom.In fact I don't wear slippers inside home at all. I have heard that people do that to prevent the cold. And in our state, there is no biting coldness anyway. So I don't prefer it! Good Luck! Regards, Ajith.

i also wear slippers and my husband doesn't. i guess it's because of the way we were brought up. i was brought up in a home where everyone wears slippers inside the house. while my husband was brought up in a home where everyone leaves their slippers and shoes outside the house. even visitors have to take off their shoes before entering their house. i don't really like that practice because it looks messy. on their doorstep you can find all the shoes and slippers and sometimes the neighbors' pets would walk all over them.

I don't wear slippers in my bedroom too. I've used to it. But when the weather is cold, I'd consider wearing slippers as the floor will be cold also.

this is really good to be barefoot for sometime in a day and it is also good for your foot too. sometime i don't wear slippers and walk barefoot around but sometime when there is dust in the room then it is impossible for me to be barefoot. there is no harm in this.....but don't know much but according to acupressure being a barefoot relax the muscle of your foot.

I'm like you, I always wear slippers in the house. I can't stand being barefoot. For as long as I can remember I always have slippers on in the bathroom, bedroom and everywhere round the house. I usually wear socks underneath the slippers.. I have a weird obsession with slippers..I just feel like germs travel faster through the feet so I always keep 'em covered.. Its the natural way to avoid scales on the soles of your feet...

I have weird feet (bunions) and usually I go around in socks when it is cool or cold or my bare feet when it is warm. I will wear my sandals or my shoes but that is usually because I plan to go down to the basement and it is cold down there and the last time I went in my bare feet, I got this blasted cold that I am still suffering through. It is normal especially for us with wide feet. We have to stretch the slippers over our feet unlike you people with skinny feet who can just slip into them and have to have velcro to keep them from falling off while you walk.

in India may families prefer to leave their shoes and slippers outside the house and remain bare feet inside. but personally, i don't like walking bare feet. n case i have to walk bare fet then i walk on my toes... well, at our place we all wear slippers in the bed room too.. anyways, sometimes when i am very tired and have been wearing shoes or heels for long then on removing them, i prefer walking bare feet on the carpet for sometime.. it relaxes the feet.

Yes Larish, I'm like your husband...! Bare footed at home, while under roof in all rooms. This I do for keeping my floors clean. If I use slippers, uncleanness of floor will not be noticed by me so easily! I think, "A well clean floor of my home is an essential factor and it does not need to wear any slippers thereby!" Thanks for this nice posting and have a good day!
