Definition

The most loued article of clothing any aunty owns, basically a night dress which is worn throughout the day, to the market, to the neighbours house and even to the bus stand to pick up the kids - Bunty and Pinky. From Patiala to Mysore, Indian aunties are louing their nighties.

Though Christian women from Bombay are too haute to be caught wearing this outside their house rather choosing to be caught wearing clothes such as capris, pedal pushers and half-pants.

East or West, Nightie is the Best!

Usage

Laxmi: "Aiyo, Tina Why you are always wearing these fancy fancy clothes? Wear simble nighty!"
