    Default Change into your pyjamas

    Hello Teachers and friends

    When I want to say I'm going to take off my clothes now and put on my pyjamas (or any other clothing for that matter), can I say I want to change into my pyjamas? Another example is - After I have my breakfast, I changed into my school uniform.

    Please advise. Thank you.

    And yet another example, quite common before some film scenes, is 'I'll just change into [or 'slip into] something more comfortable' - where 'something more comfortable' is a euphemism for a garment that is either loosely fastened or revealing or both.
