If you’ve been on Instagram lately, then it probably won’t shock you to hear that loungewear is trending in a big way. And, in fact, this was the case even before so much of the world transitioned to working from home. Matching sweatsuits in coordinating colors and patterns (tie dye, anyone?) are more popular than ever, luckily for all of us who are fighting against the urge to work in our pajamas all day long (but, hey, that’s cool, too). If you’re anything like me, you probably can’t get enough of scrolling through the comfiest, coziest, softest loungewear available right now and dreaming of wearing it while curled up on the couch or at a desk.
What’s more, there’s something so soothing about having designated clothes for relaxation. Having a drawer full of these options means that whenever life gets stressful or anxiety-filled (and a lot of us are feeling that way right now) that we have a whole selection of clothing that might make us feel just a little bit better. And feeling a little bit better when things seem scary and overwhelming sometimes makes all the difference. If you’re a size 14 or above and are currently looking to stock your feel-good-clothes drawer with the coziest, most soothing loungewear, here are 11 of the best options to show right now.
Old Navy French Terry Plus-Sized Joggers
These French terry joggers are not only super soft, but available up to 4X—and the light brown shade is a nice, fresh take on neutral loungewear (no more boring gray or black).
Ryllace Cashmere Cocoon Duster
Not everyone is into joggers and a matching sweatsuit. Enter: cashmere. This duster is as luxuriously cozy as it gets—perfect for cuddling up on the couch, but also chic enough to wear for a meeting or date night.
Savage x Fenty Jersey Knit Sweatpant
If you’re looking for something a little more formfitting, these Savage x Fenty leggings look like they’d probably do the trick.
Universal Standard Perry Spacer Cropped Hoodie
Think of this as investment loungewear, and the best damn hoodie you’ll ever wear. Available up to size 40, this hoodie is cozy without being too warm and looks just as good with sweatpants as it does styled under overalls.
Torrid Olive Green Twill Drawstring Jogger
These joggers are technically loungewear, but look like real pants which is never a band thing.
BP Nori Shorts Pajamas
Again, perhaps technically these are pajamas, but you can’t tell me that these wouldn’t be perfect for lounging around the house all day (especially if you live somewhere warm).
JUST MY SIZE Women's Plus-Size Fleece Sweatpant
Looking for a pair of sweatpants that are affordable enough to do that bleach tie-dyeing craft you keep seeing all over Instagram? These are a great option for that — plus, they come in petites!
