    28 Pieces Of Clothing That Are Basically The Definition Of Comfort

    You've heard of comfort food...well, these clothes are basically the sartorial equivalent of mac 'n' cheese.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A super soft athleisure-inspired top that's a cute and casual basic, but that also has stitched details and a longer hemline that make it more interesting than a typical tee.,

    Reviewers say it fits true to size!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love the way this fits me, and how soft the material is. I can easily dress this up or down and be comfy wearing it all day. The color is also stunning and there are a bunch of choices. This is going to be a go-to piece in my wardrobe." —Mandi S

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes 14-26 and in 12 colors).

    2. An easy short-sleeve romper comfy enough to wear for lounging but stylish enough to rock outside, too. It's sure to become sartorial BFFs with everything from your around-the-house slippers to your fave statement necklace.,

    Reviewers recommend ordering based on the measurements in the size chart, not your usual size (as it runs a bit small).

    Promising review: "I was on the fence about this because I’m tall, and these things always ride up super high for me — but I was pleasantly surprised this one didn’t! t’s not tight on the tummy at all and has enough room to give that loose look, which I love. The material is thick (not at all see-through) and soooo comfy! I plan to order more of these in different colors !" —Ev90

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 42 colors and prints).

    3. Cool and loose jogger pants that will make you wonder why you ever wasted time with jeans.


    Promising review: "I didn’t have super high expectations for these but I love them! The material is so soft and comfortable and the fit is true to size. Thin enough material that they’re not super hot, but also not see-through. The print looks just like the picture and I think they are nice enough to be worn out, not just around the house. Could be dressed up cute with a jean jacket and some heels. Definitely recommend for the price!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $25.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 18 colors and prints).

    4. A summery and stripey sundress to keep you cool and comfortable enough to twirl around on even the hottest summer days.

    Promising review: "This is even prettier in person! The colors are vibrant, the fabric is soft, and the design is very comfortable and casual! Perfect to dress up or down!" —Paula85

    Get it from Maurices for $24.90 (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    5. A classic and cult-fave Calvin Klein logo bralette that's loungewear and underwear all in one...loungewear for your boobs, shall we say.

    model wearing black bralette with white logo band and matching underwear

    Promising review: "This is the most comfortable bralette in the world. Please note I said bralette and not sports bra — this offers minimal to no support and I would never recommend it for physical activity. FYI it is also cut to offer minimal coverage. This is very stretchy. I wear this everywhere. It’s cute if you want to show it off under a flannel or cropped sweatshirt, or as just a nice piece to wear under tank tops, etc. The material is UNBELIEVABLY soft; it feels like you aren’t wearing a bra at all. I put this in the wash with all my clothes and let it hang to dry, and I’ve had no problems with shrinking or pilling at all. I will warn you though, it is thin so if you get chilly, everyone will know you’re cold. You know." —Courtney S

    Get it from Amazon for $19.60+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 37 colors and prints). Get the matching thong here.

    6. Surprisingly affordable bike shorts, which, like any of the trusty pairs you've been living in lately, are great for wearing for workouts, while chillaxing, or under dresses. What makes these particular comfy wardrobe staples must-haves? POCKETS and over 5,000 (!!!) positive reviews.,

    Promising review: "These are lifesavers. The charcoal pair is cotton and soooooo comfy for summertime. But I have multiple pairs of each color and swear by them. They are great for the gym and just wearing under dresses and skirts." —MissLee

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and in 48 colors and styles, including different lengths).

    7. An effortlessly adorbs sundress with ~cute-as-a-button~ details and a comfy fit that'll make you wanna twirl.,

    Promising review: "I would give this 6 stars if I could. Fits PERFECTLY! It's a very vibrant forest green color. The material is very soft and the little buttons on the front look like wooden buttons. Stretchy, bouncy material and not see-through. Perfect length for me as well. I would take this dress at any length honestly. Just super comfy and looks great. Oh, and has POCKETS!😆😆❤" —natasha

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 colors).

    8. An easy breezy French linen wrap dress available in pretty much every color imaginable, so you can splurge on multiple and make it your new casual summer uniform.

    model wearing oversized, below-the-knee, dark blue wrap dress

    It's from a small business specializing in all sorts of linen clothing and based in Latvia.

    Promising review: "This one is my favorite. Super easygoing, great fabric, classy yet relaxed fit, beautiful color. Mine is in lavender. I live in it. I get compliments all the time." —Tizia

    Get it from DressMeLinen on Etsy for $90 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 24 colors)

    9. A soft as heck jumpsuit that's trendy, but also so cozy you'll feel like you're getting away with wearing a PJ onesie in public. Dress it up with booties or just toss it over a bralette for a cute and cozy lounge look!, Amazon

    Listen, if the reviewer below says it's good for wearing on airplanes, you know it's comfy!

    Promising review: "This is actually my favorite thing I've purchased recently. I love wearing it on planes; it's so comfy and easy. It's also so cute to wear out during the daytime. It's so simple, but I always get compliments. The fabric is thick, so I noticed in the summer I was getting a little warm. The sides go low so you might want to wear a bandeau." —Cyndi Lundeberg

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 11 colors).

    10. Fun floral lounge pants perfect for ~planting~ yourself on the couch.


    Promising review: "Sooooooooo comfortable and hella cute! ABSOLUTELY PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL! I love baggy clothes so I usually wear men's pajama bottoms, but they're not cute. I wanted something super stretchy and comfortable but pretty. Seriously best investment I've made in a long time!!!! They're the next best thing to being naked!! Highly recommend!!!" —Selena G.

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors and prints).

    11. Shockingly affordable and shockingly comfortable leggings made for lounging, not other silly legging purposes like working out or — *gasp* — leaving the house.

    model in the black leggings

    I mean, I see no reason you couldn't leave the house in these, but why would you want to? They're by Target's loungewear line Colsie, which has been the source of some of my favorite stay-at-home-times comfy gear.

    Promising review: "Best lounge leggings ever. I have five of these at this point and I'll be devastated if they stop making them, lol. They are the most comfortable lounge leggings ever. I mostly wear then around the house or to sleep in. The high waist is a true high waist. They are soft and stretchy and hold their shape without making you feel cinched in." —Rae

    Get them from Target for $15 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    12. A soft ruffled romper with an easy elastic waist that screams cozy, but make it fashion., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these rompers and have them in every color. So comfy and I love they have pockets. I get lots of compliments. Not the easiest button closure in back when I need to go to bathroom, but that's like every romper I own so it’s to be expected." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    13. A surprisingly chic knit lounge set that's a heck of a lot cuter (and more Insta-worthy) than plain old sweats, but still snuggly. Plus, you can break up the top and shorts for tons of outfit combinations.,

    Promising review: "It’s safe to say that I am OBSESSED with this lounge set! The color is just like the pictures and it fits true to size. The quality is much better than anticipated, which was a pleasant surprise! It’s super comfy and cozy for lounging around, but you can also throw on a pair of jeans to dress it up and wear it out! I also think the shorts would be acceptable to wear out with a graphic tee. :)" —Julia N

    Get it from Amazon for $30.88+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 colors and prints).

    14. A knit midi pencil skirt with a sleek slit that comes with the added bonus of making it feel way less restrictive than typical pencil skirts. Sultry softness ~write~ this way.

    model in the ribbed white midi
    Beginning Boutique

    Beginning Boutique is a woman-owned Australian shop with a huge selection of trendy clothes!

    Promising review: "Best midi skirt ever! I am currently six months pregnant and found that maternity skirts just did not look nice. This has the perfect stretch to accommodate a growing bump whilst still being firm and tight around the waist. The fabric is thick and soft and it is so comfortable! I loved it so much I bought it in three more colors, and I know I’ll be able to keep wearing it after baby comes. Highly recommend to anyone pregnant or not!" —Kelly M.

    Get it from Beginning Boutique for $55.95 (available in sizes XS/S-M/L).

    15. Soft and funky-printed yoga shorts sure to ~work out~ well, whether you're getting your sweat on or pressing play on Netflix.


    Reviewers recommend sizing up!

    Promising review: "Best. Shorts. Ever. These are possibly the most comfy shorts I’ve ever owned. Great material, feels sturdy but soft. They’re not too long or too short. I love that there is no elastic in the waistband — it’s just a drawstring so you can tighten or loosen it to your level of comfort. I’ve worked out in these. I’ve slept in these. They’re perfect for both! They hold up beautifully in the wash, no shrinking (but I did follow the washing instructions to the letter). If you’re looking at these, stop debating and just buy them, you’ll love them!" —Trash Panda

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 27 colors and prints).

    16. A lightweight floral open cardigan you can, throw over your favorite tee for a weekend look that's equal parts cute and chill.


    It's got pockets!

    Promising review: "This has to be the most comfortable cardigan that I have ever bought! It is 90 degrees here in Texas and the material is so comfortable that wearing it didn't bother me! I highly recommend this product. I would however recommend buying your exact shirt size. I wear an XL in women's shirts and this fit my arms and shoulders perfect! I hate tight sleeves and sleeves that make you feel restricted. I will definitely buy another one of these cardigans!!!!" —Panda

    Get it from Amazon for $17.79+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 10 colors).

    17. A sherpa-lined oversized Levi's denim jacket that'll be a staple come fall and winter, sure, but will also look so effortlessly cool tossed over a floral summer dress on a chilly outdoor evening.

    model wearing the medium wash jacket, which hits at the hip

    Promising review: "Best purchase I have made. Listen, I don't write reviews at all, it's not really my thing. But this jacket is so versatile, comfortable and well-constructed, that it deserved a review. I am 5'4" and it hits me right where the model in the picture does. I figured it would be a little longer on me, but the stock image is pretty accurate. The sherpa lining is super soft and it covers only the interior (except for the arms, so no unnecessary puff). I wear it with sweaters under it. I am between in a M and L in my jacket sizes, and the medium fit well with light-to-medium sweaters underneath." —Clauds20

    Get it from Levi's for $128 (available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors).

    18. A racerback romper with adjustable straps available in tons of quirky prints from flamingos to dinos to bespectacled pineapples to taco cats in space, so it's not only comfortable but comforting in the sense it'll put a big ol' smile on your face.


    Promising review: "This is way cuter and more comfortable than I thought it would be. I intended it to be a beach coverup, but I wear it all the time. Fabric is soft and stretchy. The shorts are just the right length and it has pockets. Love it. Seriously had to talk myself out of ordering another one (still fighting though...)." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 38 prints).

    19. A surprisingly chic oversized hoodie dress that's ready to replace your worn-out college hoodie permanently.


    Lots of reviewers also posted pics of them rocking this with over-the-knee boots, so it'll double as a going-out look when you're actually, well, going out again.

    Promising review: "Sexy and ridiculously comfy. We have all had the experience of getting home from a night on the town and being so happy and relieved to take off our clothes and put on our comfy wear. Well, I wore this for the first time tonight, came home, took my boots off and then realized I didn't want to change. My main issue with this dress is that I'm going to have to fight with myself not to sleep in it regularly! I'm going to order another one or two of these and may even buy a few for Christmas presents for my sister and mom. We all have completely different body types and this will look amazing on us all. Please make this in more colors so my friends will know that I'm not wearing the same thing every day." —Susan K

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 29 designs).

    20. Dreamy wide leg pants with pockets and an elastic waist, which...wait, do you here that?? I think it's the sound of these babies screaming "summer."


    They're by Zelie for She, an LA-based, Black woman-owned brand dedicated to creating glam plus-size clothing. They just launched their Nordstrom line earlier this year!

    Promising review: "Super comfy!! I’ve always purchased these pants from Zelie; I have almost every color! So soft and I even wear them casually, not just at home" —ShanaRapport

    Get them from Nordstrom for $69 (available in sizes 1X-3X and in three colors and prints). Get the matching tee here and matching duster here.

    21. Lou & Grey leopard terry lounge shorts that just might be the trendy yet chill piece you've been ~on the prowl~ for. Reviewers say they're just long enough that they feel comfortable leaving the house in them.

    model wearing the white and orangish-brown shorts

    Promising review: "Can’t stop wearing these shorts. They are super comfortable and cute! I’ll definitely be buying more!!" —NM56

    Get them from Loft for $49.50 (available in regular and petite sizes XXS-XXL). Get the matching sweatshirt here.

    22. A soft and effortless tie-dye maxi, which over 2,000 reviewers think you should ~tie~ for yourself.,

    Reviewers say it runs large!

    Promising review: "Because this is one of the most comfortable and prettiest color dresses of its kind, I bought two more after I received my first one, and then went back and got one for my daughter too! It's very cool in our hot Texas summer and the fabric is soft. I have two cats, but no snags yet! I love the deep V-neck (I wear it with a sports bra under). I'd order a size smaller than you normally would. My daughter is almost eight months pregnant and the large fits her great. I'll probably buy more later. Five stars for this! The blue is awesome!" —MinTexas

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 23 prints).

    23. A cozy maxi dress (with POCKETS!) that'll have you covered — literally — for whatever. Just toss it on and go (or don't go) anywhere you please.,

    Promising review: "This dress is awesome! So comfy and has pockets!! I get compliments every time I wear it. It is very long. I am 5'5"and I have to hold it up a little when I walk so I don't step on it. However, I love it! I pair it with a lightweight cardigan and look so put together. ;)" —LaLaLand

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes L-5XL and in 14 colors and prints)

    24. An inspirational and fashionable feline tee that's meow-ch softer and better quality than the other graphic tees in your collection.

    model wearing tan tee with orange cat face wearing red cat eye sunglasses above read script reading "chin up, kitten" with doodle hearts

    I have a couple tees from this awesome small business, which specializes in cheeky, feminist, and pop culture-inspired gear. All their tees are soft and comfy and the designs are printed with eco-friendly ink that's actually woven into the garment instead of just printed on, so it won't peel even if you wear it a ton!

    Get it from Femfetti on Etsy for $21+ (available in unisex sizes XS-4XL).

    25. A luxe and supple crochet-back open cardi sure to become BFFs with all the denim in your wardrobe.


    Promising review: "This is the most buttery soft fabric! So comfortable and stretchy. Perfect to throw on with any outfit." —AztecSD

    Get it from Torrid for $37.12 (originally $49.50; available in sizes M-6X).

    26. A posh leopard pullover made from a polyester, rayon, and spandex blend so soft, the brand has dubbed it "faux cashmere." Um, yes please, 10/10 would like to encircle myself in that.

    Promising review: "These were highly anticipated! I was so glad to see the quality was very nice and looks like real tie dye, not like a printed picture on pants if that makes sense. They are also very very comfy, like I don’t wanna take them off comfy! Overall super happy with these pants and the matching top too. Not to mention I’m pregnant lol, so it’s hard to find the good stuff but when you do 🥰🥰🥰." —Mary Jane
