From what we understand, the more traditional, married women and street sellers wear them, while the more modern and affluent women do not.

The pajamas are worn for everything from day-to-day life, sleeping, swimming, and bathing. I saw a women who lived in a shanty in our neighborhood take a bucket shower on the street while in her pajama outfit.

There is also a trend of wearing a single foam hair curler like a hair-tie. Even the most stylish and affluent women have adopted this style.
