I don't own and have never owned sweat pants.
Way, way back in the 80's I decided they might make my a$$ look big, so I never considered them!

I love sweatpants. And it’s an easy transition to go from sweatpants to leggings. :)


@House Cat i got fleece lined sweatpants from Effie Bauer and besides sizing being huge they’re comfy. I remember I promised to tell you what I thought of them.

My PJs for winter are fleece lined sweats. Since working from home in November, I've been wearing them 24/7 unless I have to leave the house to get food.

Omg, I bought a bunch of joggers from Old Navy at the start of the shutdown, and they're what I've lived in these last 8 months. I love them!! I never want to go back to outside clothes full time, or what my friend calls "hard clothes".

That’s what they are! Hard clothes. My jeans feel so crispy now. My skin might fall off if I wear them,

I am liking the lounging clothes too.

I tend to wear dresses during the day. Even while working from home.

I don't mind leggings and a top sometimes.

I have always hated jeans. I would much rather wear a dress with tights or leggings if it's cold.

I was very happy when the horribly named jegging came into style, because it was much more comfortable to me. I find jeans just very restrictive.

I will admit that I have only worn "real" pants twice in the last eight months. I have my at home sweats and PJs and my out in public PJ bottoms. That means that I have gone out in PJ bottoms, strappy tank top, and sapphire & diamond pendant or PJ bottoms, t-shirt, and pearls. I could happily dress like this forever :)

I love sweat pants at home, but I cannot wear them out of the house. It is just the way I was raised by my very prim and proper dad. I do own a lot of loungy comfortable, elastic waist outdoor pants that are just as comfy, and when I go to the grocery store etc, I change from indoor sweats (terry, fleece, cotton) to outdoor sweats made of indiscriminate man made material. Here are some of my outdoor lounge pants looks. CF2C89E4-6478-41E5-A009-C4CF447746D6.jpeg 45E588EC-351C-497F-ACD3-A9851FCB9B11.jpeg BF974C75-300F-4C65-8DD9-35A13556B063.jpeg

OK so I have been wearing Costco PJs inside the house for the past 2 weeks and I love them! They were like $13 on sale! Nautica. I got the blue and the cream holiday PJs. They are made of cozy fleece and they come in XS and they fit. It's not vanity sizing woohoo.

I wear them when we come back home for the day instead of sweatpants lately. I love them. I don't sleep in them and they are purely daytime wear for me haha. So comfy. And fleecy warm.

These are the 2 pairs I got but they come in a third festive pattern that I didn't care for. So comfy!
Purrrfect for the holidays and inside comfy wear.


I never wear sweatpants outside the house either @jaysonsmom.

leopard print sweats sound awesome!
I wish I could find comfy leggings but my skin is crazy sensitive & all the seams itch & burn even the "seamless" pairs.
I found 1 a while ago at Athleta that was not too bad but it shrank .
Tights are way too itchy

I am super sensitive to and I find American Apparel leggings and Tipsy Elves leggings to be very comfy. Check it out and see what you think. I love leggings and wear them outside the house all the time. Fun prints with fun tunics/sweaters and boots. And voila an easy put together outfit that is super comfy.

Same. I love jeggings and IMO they are flattering on many different shapes. And so comfy. I always disliked jeans too and also found them restrictive.

I haven’t left the house in I don’t know how long. I’m not sure if I would wear sweatpants or not. Maybe if I were going to walmart.

I also love sweat pants and wear them all the time! I’ve worn them for years, and I do wear them outside of the house (always have). Thankfully my husband doesn’t care. I don’t care for leggings at all, only sweatpants. I like the cheap ones from Walmart and the like.

I love the phrase hard clothes LOL – I’ve only put on “real” clothes a couple of times since March and it’s been terrible each time. I will be so sad when I go back to work and have to wear grown-up clothes.

@missy my Costco had those pjs but not in my size, sadly.
Thank u for the legging recommendations!

My pleasure! Re the PJs have you tried Costco online? They have them too and no shipping charge. They might have more sizes available online.

I wear sweats outdoors in the winter only. Comfy leggings the rest of the year when i leave the house. I don't care what anybody says! Leggings are pants!!!

Plus I'm just a SAHM and with COVID I go nowhere that isn't necessary medical care and my husband does groceries on an in office day. So it's jammies only life for me these days. Big t shirts and comfy shorts. I always embarass my husband though wearing my sweats to an appointment or to lunch lmao. I give no cares. I'm not an ornament dressed to please others.

I am working from home and Zoom only shows waist up! I wear sweats or PJ pants on the bottom. I do wear jeans when I grocery shop because I am afraid if I don't wear jeans once a week they may not fit anymore.

I am however wearing sweats on Thanksgiving! It is only my kids, no extended family or friends due to the pandemic and we made a family decision we are going comfy!

When guests some to my house for a meal, I always say “I’ll be wearing sweats” so they’re prepared to see it and can wear the same! And I’ve done every holiday in sweats more than once. It’s the best way!

HI:

I have "sweats" but usually only wear them for outdoor activities when it is cool-cold. That said, I do have lounge wear and joggers--lululemon (their crushed velvet joggers are FABU) and stuff from La Vie en Rose that I wear indoors when not I am working. Technically I guess they are sweatpants...:P2

cheers--Sharon

I don't actually like trackie-dacks that much, for exercise or in winter at home sure but otherwise I find them hot and unflattering! I did wear them a quite a bit whilst in lockdown but was happy to get back into "real clothes" back in the office - think maybe a mental thing? Like I didn't feel good about myself in sloppy gear....
