Interior temperatures were kept constant on Mir, and clothing was limited by the space available.
U.S. Mir astronaut Shannon Lucid basically wore " ... cotton .. shorts and a shirt. During [the first] two-thirds of the flight, there were enough [clothes] so that we could change, like twice a week, like on Wednesdays and Sundays... Then I always wore that blue jumpsuit over that. I wore that every day for 188 days. Then toward the end of the flight, ...we only changed like once a week."
