The issue with pyjama pants

I was in conversation with a friend lately. We both didn't sleep very well for no obvious serious reasons. All of a sudden I blurted out that my pyjama pants drive me crazy.  They ride up my leg and I hate that.
My friend exclaimed in recognition of the problem. 

I love my bed and I love being in my bed. Especially in the winter when I tuck myself in and sink in my little nest. It is important for me that I am warm and that usually means I need to be fully covered.  Only in a big heatwave I risk sleeping (part of) the night on top of our sheets.  I sometimes even tuck a teddy bear in my lower back and I curse if Jan is turning and twisting in the bed and loosening the sheets, causing a breeze of cold air to move under the sheets. 

So in that context you understand that I hate pyjama pants that ride up.  I curl up in bed but when I stretch out a leg...the pants ride up to my knee and  my lower leg is uncovered on the sheet that was still cold. uggggh. Dreadful.  But you know what is worse? I have some flannel pyjama's that are more tight at my ankles but that ride up partially anyhow and then get stuck too tightly on the calves. Yikes. That's painful and a sleep killer. 

So I have no solution.  Not sure if the type of fabric would make a difference.  But some googling shows I'm not the only one with this frustration and that made me smile.  So how about you? Do you share my frustration?

Maar ja, herkenbaar! Zo vervelend!
Zo van die pyjama's met voetjes voor volwassenen, bestaat dat?
