Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A seamless set featuring a ribbed knit material best described as divine. Reviewers swear that the high-waisted leggings are squat-proof but "don't feel suffocating," which I'm pretty sure is allllll the proof we need that sorcery exists.,

    Promising review: "This outfit fits so well but doesn't feel suffocating. The pants at first looked too small but once I put them on they stretched out easily and the material is thick enough for it not to be see-through or show panty lines. The top is cozy to wear, supportive, and va-va voom if you wear it as a top on its own. It covers the back well too. I plan on ordering more colors." —Jenny

    Get it from Amazon for $28.97+ (available in sizes S-L and in 10 colors).

    2. A crop tank and shorts set if you prefer accessorizing your Harry Potter marathons with clothing that makes you feel as if you're being swaddled by a teddy bear. Here's your heaven.

    the pink set

    Promising review: "The material is amazing, super cozy and soft. I will definitely be wearing this product to lounge around the house everyday because of how super cozy it is." —Christopher Lira

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 23 colors).

    3. A seamless jumpsuit purposely designed with a lightweight material and slightly loose silhouette, that way the fabric won't cling to skin (because sweat season is a-coming). However! The drawstring waist ensures you won't feel like you're wearing a shapeless potato sack.

    Promising review: "For the price, this is a fantastic, comfy and easy outfit to wear around the house or out to run errands. It's breathable and loose so would be perfect for a day at the park in the summer, too!" —Christine Morrison

    Get it from Amazon for $11.41+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 37 colors and two styles).

    4. A spaghetti strap sundress because in the year that won't be named (*ahem* literally the one we are living in now), the impossible has happened: we've gotten sick of leggings. This simple number provides all the comfort from our once beloved staple but looks far more put-together.

    Promising review: "I have purchased several of these little dresses. They are so comfortable and airy. They fit very well and are extremely flowy. They are well-made and the straps are well-constructed." —Suzi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-5X and in 37 colors).

    5. A longline padded tank that reaps the versatility of a tank with the sweet, sweet support of underwire thanks to a body-hugging fit. TL;DR: going braless will have never felt so secure.,

    Promising review: "All the positive reviews are true, this is a really great top! I will only buy premium workout leggings, but have been looking into more affordable tops and stumbled across this one. I really didn't expect to love it as much as I do. The fabric is soft and very thick, the cut is great, and it offers enough support for DD/DDD for casual wear and stretching/mobility sessions." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 12 colors).

    6. A drawstring romper with all the comfort of the pajama set you've been wearing to bed since 1893, but it's a romper and ergo a *lot* more chic.

    reviewer wearing olive green romper with tie waist and pockets

    Promising review: "I LOVE this romper! It was perfect for walking around in hot Savannah and I received many compliments. Not only is it comfortable and soft, but looks so chic. Obsessed!" —Jennifer Ferrara

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 16 colors).

    7. A waffle knit set to sweeten cozy weekends spent scouring Netflix for yet another true crime docu-series. Forensic Files coupled with hot coffee, some snacks, and this comfy hunk of loungewear? My definition of bliss.,

    Promising review: "These are the cutest waffle knit pajama sets! They’re so comfy, and the colors are on trend! These would make such a cute gift set for a group or for spring! I love the draw string shorts!" —ClaireCumbee

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 colors).

    8. A tracksuit set that requires absolutely 👏 no 👏 effort 👏. Finding a matching top and bottom before your morning cup of coffee is simply inconceivable — let this do the hard work for you.

    Get it from Boohoo for $16 (originally $40, available in sizes 12-18).

    9. A V-neck maxi dress for an easy, breezy, ~doesn't require pants~ outfit you'll want to slip on for any and every occasion. This is comfy enough to lounge in and stylish enough to 'gram in, so cue the Hannah Montana soundtrack because this number is truly the best of both worlds.

    reviewer wearing maxi dress in black

    Promising review: "This is super comfy and stylish to wear and most importantly, it has POCKETS! This is easy to dress up with a cute hat and accessories. It has a nice soft material without being clingy. This is my new favorite summer dress!" —Meredith

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 48 colors and prints).

    10. Track sweats perfect for the inconsistent temps we experience during those weird summer weeks, when outfit choices can easily swap from parkas to tanks overnight. Reviewers swear these are crafted with magic fabric that remains cool on sweaty days *and* warm on frigid ones. Hermione? Are you responsible for this?

    Promising review: "These are probably the softest pants I've ever owned. They feel like velvet, and are unique in that they will keep me warm in chillier months but are airy and breathable enough to wear during the sticky, humid summer months. I shy away from sweatpants usually because I don't like fleece lining or warmer pants in general because they always just seem to make me TOO hot no matter the season." —Jessica

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S–3X and 20+ colors and prints).

    11. Baggy overalls (with pockets!) for anyone who detests having to scrounge up a matching top and bottom, plus wants to look peak Instagram-worthy in their loungewear — all you'll have to do is slip this on over a bralette *or* a sleeved tee.

    reviewer wearing the black jumpsuit

    Promising review: "I am literally obsessed with these! I have been wanting to order overalls for a couple of years now. I thought this was a cute way to wear them without trying to look too young. Spot on. I actually bought it as my lounging outfit. With all this time being spent at home with the recent crisis, I wanted something comfortable but cute so I’m not in sweats all day. Thinking about getting a couple of other colors. I would totally wear these out and about." —WamQQk

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and in eight colors).

    12. A V-neck nightgown for anyone who wants to go pants-less while trekking to the kitchen... but lives with a ton of roommates. Your perfect solution resides below.


    Promising review: "Oh my goodness this nightgown is perfect! I ordered it to have something comfortable and easy to breastfeed my baby in while I’m in the hospital after I give birth, though I want to wear it all day everyday already! It is very soft and comfortable and a great length! You could honesty wear this as a t-shirt dress also. The ruffle sleeves are so cute." —Gillian Peters 2011

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 26 colors).

    13. A Bali seamless bralette for support that feels like a second skin. Reviewers swear by the delightful stretchy fabric and wide, supportive straps that this affordable lovely undergarment offers.

    reviewer wearing black bralette

    Promising review: "Of the many, many bralettes and 'comfort bras' I've tried, this one is the best. It is extremely comfy, with buttery soft, stretchy fabric that is also substantial enough to be supportive. The support is impressive, too. I wear a 38H and the 2x fits well. The cups stretch enough to accommodate a range of cup sizes." —Rainy Days

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 35 colors).

    14. A crop top and shorts set evoking major Sporty Spice vibes which, let me tell you, is what I 🎶 really really want 🎶. We love loungewear that make us feel like a Brit pop icon.

    reviewer wearing the grey set

    Promising review: "Got this set because it looks super comfy to lounge in at home or run errands in during the summer and I was right, it is SUPER COMFORTABLE. Sporty yet stylish at the same time! Often times, when I buy sets like these, I end up with shorts that are too short for me but these are perfect length for me!" —Celeste Wong

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 12 colors).

    15. A pocketed jersey T-shirt dress purposely designed with a longer hemline, which means your undergarments won't be on the brink of exposure with every sudden gust of wind.

    reviewer wearing the black dress

    Promising review: "This is my new go-to brand for extra-comfy, relaxed & uber soft clothing. So far every piece is well-made, very soft, and the perfect length to wear as a dress or as a tunic; you can even sleep in these, they're that comfortable. This jersey cotton is a nice, cooling fabric, perfect for the hot Texas summers. Very affordably priced, quick shipping and easy returns/exchanges." —Claire Dunway

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 12 colors).

    16. High-rise pull-on shorts destined to have these words coming from your lips: "I can't believe I didn't get these sooner." Reviewers rave that these wardrobe staples are short without being too short.

    Free People

    Promising review: "These shorts look very, very short but they are not booty shorts. Very comfortable and great for running or wearing around the house. I bought two and I'm buying two more." —716hgrtuknv5788

    Get it from Free People for $28 (available in sizes XS-L and in 13 colors).

    17. A three-piece outfit equipped with a seamless sports bra, high-waisted leggings, and mid-thigh biker shorts; this is essentially the crème de la crème of transitional clothing. Wear the leggings at night or when it's slightly chilly during the day, the shorts when unbearable humidity has got you sweating profusely.

    Promising review: "I like the fact that these leggings are not too thick but not so thin you are revealing your backside! They provide support for the tummy but not so much your breathing is cut off." —jillstovall

    Get it from Amazon for $6.87+ (available in sizes S-L and in four colors, each piece can also be purchased separately).

    18. A tank top and shorts combo if "hot sleeper" doesn't even begin to describe the pool of sweat that's bubbled around your body by the time you're hitting snooze. This set gives humidity problems the boot due to how breathable and lightweight it is.


    Promising review: "Love these pajamas so much more than the bamboo ones I have been wearing. I bought bamboo originally because they were supposed to prevent sweating but that didn't work for me. These pajamas actually do! They fit perfectly, are extremely comfortable, wash and dry well, and I don't sweat." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.66+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 25 colors).

    19. An oversized jumpsuit because the *only* thing you should be choosing is your newest Hulu binge — not which lounge pants to wear with your oversized tee. No more attempting to match an outfit before your coffee has even kicked in.

    reviewer wearing white and blue tie dye jumpsuit

    Promising review: "Love this jumpsuit. It's oversized which makes it very boxy and comfy to wear for lounging around the house. It's also lightweight, so it's perfect for summer. If you're not a fan of boxy clothing, you can use a belt to make it more fitting. The straps are adjustable and it has pockets!" —Bout Khang

    Get it from Amazon for $13.59+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and in 36 colors and styles).

    20. A silky robe serving major Emily in Paris vibes to moi. Thoughts for season two: She will drape this on and then proceed to sip coffee, eat a croissant, and gaze out at the entire city with Gabriel by her side. (The obvious romantic choice.)

    model wearing the leopard print robe

    Promising review: "This silky robe is super soft and cozy. Just like sleeping in a cloud! It also washes well and does not wrinkle." —Pamela S.

    Get it from Summersalt for $113 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors).

    21. A flowy tank dress made from a super soft and lightweight material. TL;DR: If you want to feel like you're wear pajamas in public without the likelihood of running into someone you know, consider this your new style soulmate.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! It’s loose, lightweight but not sheer, and great for summer. I wanted something very comfortable for chasing around the kids I babysit in NYC humidity. The slits on both sides make it really easy to move around in without being too risqué. I also love the adjustable straps." —Kat Y.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 41 colors).

    22. A lace trim tank and shorts set crafted with velvet, aka this is the embodiment of luxe loungewear. Wearing this around your apartment takes mundane activities (hello, mindless Instagram scrolling) and makes it feel like an event.

    the burgundy velvet tank top and lace trim shorts

    Promising review: "I'm so thrilled with this purchase! I'm always hesitant to order clothing online but this one fit as expected, and the top is long enough that it's not a crop top (navy color). The fabric feels velvety but isn't hot, making this comfortable to sleep in even in Vegas summers." —Stefany Volmer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors).

    23. Danskin bootcut yoga pants reviewers swear can be thrown in the wash approximately 130,000 times — and they'll consistently emerge from the laundry room looking just as they did when they were first ripped out of their packaging.


    Promising review: "I love these pants! The fit is sleek but not as form-fitting as leggings, the fabric is heavy and has a bit of a drape, and because the logo is up near the waistband, it is easily covered by a top so I feel OK wearing them for on the daily versus as just workout wear. I also like the wide waistband because I am not constantly having to pull my pants back into place every time I stretch. As for care, I wash them normally with other dark items, but I let them line dry vs using the dryer (as I would with lingerie) to preserve elastic properties." —Red Mre

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in three colors).

    24. A pajama set here to nudge your high school gym shorts and old soccer team T-shirt into retirement. Sweaty sleepers, this cool-to-the-touch bamboo fabric is *especially* divine for you.

    model wearing the purple pajama set

    Promising review: "I needed PJs that were cool and comfortable. But I often found that the fabric of other PJs would rapidly get worn, pilled, and rough. These silky soft PJs have been going strong for months now through countless hot flashes and heat waves when it would get into the 80s in our bedroom. If you are a hot-blooded person and need to cool down, I can't recommend these PJs enough." —Margery

    Get it from Amazon for $17.89+ (available in sizes S-4X and in 13 colors).

    25. A racerback tank that has most likely been blessed by a fairy godmother, because this takes your basic cami and goes *poof*. An instantly chic upgrade is yours for the taking due this high-neck silhouette.


    Promising review: "I really love the fit of these tanks on me. They are a super soft thick but breathable material. I have ordered multiple colors at this point and have paired them in so many different ways. I love to wear them with long skirts for a more dressed up look. They look great with shorts in the warm weather. I get hot very easily and although the material is warmer I was super comfortable! These will be great for winter time in New England as well because the fabric is thicker and comfortable! These tanks are a good length and go great tucked in or over your bottoms." —Ashley Bonnett

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 16 colors).

    26. A V-neck tunic top reviewers can't stop raving about due to how soft, flowy, and versatile it is. Now that we are adults (yes I'm talking directly to you), 'tis time to finally replace the Twilight tee we've been wearing to bed since '07.

    Promising review: "I love these shirts! So far I have five, each in a different color. The material is soft and they fit true to size. The length is perfect to wear with leggings. Great fit, great color, great material, great price!" —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-5X and in 31 colors).

    27. Compression shorts available in three lengths, with even the ~shortest~ version ensuring that your assets won't be on full display with every step you take. Throw in the fact that these have pockets and voila, warm weather dressing just got a whole lot easier.


    Promising review: "These are made of a stretchy cotton material which is not too thin and not too hot. They wash up nicely and look good as new after a wash. The pocket leaves plenty of room for my Samsung S9+ in one pocket, keys and small change and lip gloss in the other." —JEC1

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 45 styles and colors).

    28. A batwing nightshirt I personally intend on living in from now until, well, forever. The purposely oversized fit means you'll never feel constricted and/or like you're on the constant verge of overheating.

    model wearing the gray shirt

    Promising review: "I love love love this sleep shirt. It’s so soft and comfortable. It never feel constricted while I’m sleeping. The fabric is breathable and really just amazing. I hate that I have to take it off." —Swizzle

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 23 colors).

    29. Drawstring linen shorts for a chic upgrade to your pajama bottoms. The high-rise elastic waistband ensures a comfy fit, plus large pockets mean you won't have to carry your cell around in your hand as you go from Point A (your couch) to B (your bed).

    Promising review: "OMG these shorts are so comfortable and so adorable that I grabbed one in every color." —Tita

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 25 colors).

    30. A cami top and matching shorts available in several fun designs from dainty feathers to the text "let me sleep" — the latter of which has been my life motto since 1994, tbqh.


    Promising review: "Super comfy and stretchy! It does run a bit large so it you want a closer fit order a size down. I love how soft the material is and have been living in mine since I got them." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XL-5XL and in 30 colors).

    31. An ultra-soft fleece lounge set because life is *far* too short to pretend that you don't love the tie-dye trend. If you don't want the whole darn set, you can even purchase individual pieces from it.

    model wearing the blue and white tie dye set
    Good Day Masks / Etsy

    Get it from Good Day Masks on Etsy for $26.60+ (available in sizes S-L).

    32. An activewear set complete with a compression tank and high-waisted shorts, the latter of which are purposely designed with a longer length...aka no more having to pause that kickboxing video in the name of adjusting yet another wedgie.

    reviewer wearing the matching black tank and shorts

    Promising review: "PERFECT and wish I ordered every color at once but happy with my cream color for sure and makes me look super tan. The bra is true to size and shorts aren’t booty shorts so you feel held in and secure to do actual workouts. I removed the bra pads for personal preference." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in nine colors).

    33. A short set made from a signature bamboo linen that's got a *ton* of awesome factors going for it: It's antibacterial, hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, thermoregulating (a fancy phrase that means it keeps you cool in the summer, warm in the winter), and is sustainably processed.

    Warmzy Club

    Warmzy Club is a small biz that specializes in unisex WFH apparel made from sustainably-sourced bamboo linen. Their products are produced in Vietnam (their hometown) and are crafted with durability in mind.

    Get it from Warmzy Club for $60 (available in sizes S-L).

    34. Lightweight drawstring joggers for a definitive upgrade to the fleece rubber duckie pajamas you've been wearing for the past century. These pocketed pants feel supremely comfy, but still look put-together enough for errands.

    model wearing the black jogger

    Promising review: "The material is super soft, sturdy, they are so comfy, and the price is great. They do not look like baggy sweatpants (my fear), they look nice for a vacation or just going out to a casual picnic/party." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $11.49+ (available in sizes 1X–5X and seven colors).

    35. Sweat shorts made from a delightful material coined as ~California weight~ i.e. extremely lightweight. The breathable French terry fabric means your thighs won't be slick with sweat after a brisk walk to your local bodega.

    Model wearing the blue tie dye short set
    Big Bud/Etsy

    Get them from Big Bud for $26.60+ (available in sizes XS-L and five colors and styles).
