Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I hear there is an inyan not to pray in clothes that one slept in. I also heard the qualification that this is only for clothes meant for sleeping. (I don't have sources)

Would something like boxers and undershirt count under this rule?

For example, you are away for shabbat, but only have one undershirt. You sleep in it, but can't change it the next day. Is is better not to wear it to tefillah?

Except for Kitzur Shulchan Aruch maybe,but the minhag is not to be concerned with sleeping in clothes. –  sam Oct 28 '13 at 0:21

I learnt that as soon as our eyes open from sleeping that Modeh Ani is declared. This would imply that a person would immediately start praying in the very clothes that they had slept in.

Different kinds of prayer may have different rules. –  Double AA Nov 27 '13 at 4:04
