We need to talk about house pants. I'm talking the kind that you put on the second you get home, and only take off when it's time to go to bed or leave the house. They can be sweatpants, yoga pants, literally whatever feels best to you — but for me, they're these Lou & Grey Zen Bounce Upstate Sweatpants. I'm not exaggerating when I say they're the softest things I've ever felt. It's like a cloud, cotton, and butter all met up and decided to join forces as a fabric that once you put it on, it feels like a crime to take off. I bought them at full-price because it physically pained me to leave the store without them. That's how good they are.
Since then, they've become the single best part of being home. They elevate all of my regular homebody activities — doing puzzles, drinking tea, watching Real Housewives — into a state of sheer bliss. They're perfect house pants for me because they're loose and forgiving, but still have a drawstring so that they stay in place at all times. The main reason I don't wear them outside is because, thanks to my stature (I'm 5'0" with short legs), the fit is too pajama-y to make them work in a setting that isn't my couch. But! If you're taller or like that look or fit, there's nothing saying you couldn't wear them during the day! I'm just saying that for me, they're absolutely ideal house pants. Yes, $69.50 is a lot for something that may never see the light of day, but they bring enough joy into my life to more than make up for it. Some people spend that kind of coin on skincare treatments or yoga classes, and that's great for them! For me, though, slipping into these bad boys at the end of a long day is the gateway to true comfort, relaxation, and self-care. —Terri Pous
By the way, our teammate Rachel also owns these pants and our entire team has confirmed that this super extra review is, in fact, true. They're very soft.
Get them from Lou & Grey or LOFT (where you can use LOFT coupons/sales on them) for $69.50+.
