WHAT DOES IT MEAN COMFORT CLOTHING?
COMFY CLOTHING? YES. SOFT LEISUREWEAR TO CARRY YOU FROM WORK TO
SINCE WE'RE NOT AROUND ANYONE BESIDES THE PEOPLE WE LIVE WITH RIGHT NOW, IT'S AN EXCUSE TO GET COSY AND COMFORTABLE. FOR US, SWEATPANTS ARE CERTAINLY COMFORTABLE CLOTHING AND WE LOVE THEM! BUT FOR THOSE WHO DOESN'T FEEL LIKE THEM WHILE WEARING LOUNGEWEAR... WHAT DOES DRESSING COMFORTABLY ACTUALLY MEAN?
There’s few feelings worse than wearing super skinny jeans — and then eating nachos. We end up feeling the waistband dig into our flesh, red marks of shame everywhere. Are we going to want to get frisky after that? No way. Comfortable “loungewear”? It expands with us. Praise everything.
"Sweatpants allow you to be comfortable in your environment. When you are comfortable your are happy! My boyfriend loves when I wear his sweats around the house, I know he is watching me walk away, with a smile," says celebrity fitness instructor Charity Lynette of Curvy Chick Fitness.
2. FREEDOM TO FANTASIZE
Once upon a time, ladies were considered scandalous if they revealed a touch of ankle. Now people go out and about with boobs popping out. It's sexy, of course, but so is leaving something to the imagination. Hide the goods in loungewear — and then have a fun reveal later!
3. SWEATPANTS ARE SEXY
No, really. Gone are the days that sweats were sloppy and shapeless — in fact, a lot of today's sweats can reveal your curves rather than hide them, if that's what makes you feel good. “Many people feel more attractive and appealing in active/lifestyle wear, and their partners love the way it looks! It fits your curves in all the right places, and after a workout, the endorphin rush makes you feel sexy and energized,” says Andrea Fornarola Hunsberger, an NYC-based fitness expert and founder of Elements Fitness Studio.
4. COMFY AND HAPPY
The reality is it can be much easier to keep things spicy when you feel attractive. "Yes, sweatpants, and their cousins yoga pants, can be a key ingredient to keeping a marriage together," says erotic writer Jacky Lang. A couple that feels comfortable and cozy with each other can have real staying power. "Speaking as someone who writes about romance and erotica, and therefore researches these topics too, comfort with your partner is a big deal," Lang says. "Comfort is closely related to trust, and partners with high levels of trust often have better sex lives. Lounging around together in comfy clothes is just one indicator that a couple has this level of comfort."
5. ALSO FOR WORKOUT!
The fact that sweatpants are good for exercising isn’t front page news. But they are! And if you have something that feels awesome and makes getting fit easier, you’re more likely to go for that walk in the park or jog around the block. A stylish pair that makes you feel pretty can also be a great confidence booster when you’re embracing an active lifestyle and pushing yourself to get out there and move your body.
6. YOU DESERVE TO RELAX
Life is crazy. You’re probably juggling kids, job, housecleaning and a million other things, and the pressure of dressing to the nines every single day doesn’t help.
Cut yourself some slack and reach for a cute loungewear (maybe here) that give you some literal wiggle room. You’ll find it easier to take a deep breath and get through whatever you must handle before wine o’clock finally arrives and you can enjoy that much-deserved glass of merlot and a brownie.
