Generally, we are supposed to say hamapil beracha immediately before going to bed, with no interruption. How do we reconcile this with the idea that we should be dressed appropriately to make a beracha, and some people do not sleep in such dress.

    Where is the idea we should be dressed appropriately for making a bracha? – Double AA Apr 11 '13 at 16:40

    Define "appropriately"? – Seth J Apr 11 '13 at 16:58

    I think the question would greatly benefit from editing in (a) what you mean by "dressed appropriately", (b) why you think "we are supposed to say hamapil beracha immediately before going to bed, with no interruption", and (c) why you think "we should be dressed appropriately to make a beracha". – msh210 Apr 11 '13 at 17:20

    @DoubleAA The question does come up in halakha. Such as when we are going to have relations and such. Hence the Halakha is not not say the Name, just Barukh HaMapil. I'll try and find sources. – Rabbi Michael Tzadok Apr 11 '13 at 18:07

    If you want to extrapolate the implication of the order of laws in siman 239, taking off one's garment in order to sleep naked is written after all the laws of krias shema al hamita. The location of the gloss of Ramma where he mentions not to eat drink or talk would also implicate those acts alone are forbidden but the undressing later is not an issue. – user6591 May 1 '17 at 18:22
