These are perhaps the most comfortable thing I have ever worn, that includes a pretty awesome cashmere lounge set.

    ChemoCozy / Etsy

    It's from the Pennsylvania-based and family-owned Chemo Cozy brand founded by Ellen and Greg Hamilton after Greg's experience with chemotherapy. Peep a blurb from the brand here:

    "Greg was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. His treatment included both radical surgeries and very extensive chemotherapy. Based on Greg’s experience, he and his wife Ellen realized there was a need for more accessible and comfortable clothing specifically designed to provide patients a better experience during their treatments. During chemo, nurses repeatedly need to access the patient’s port, pic-line or forearm, often requiring the person to practically disrobe in order to gain access to the infusion site. Not only was this humiliating, it also added to the pre-existing anxiety related to battling cancer. Greg and Ellen searched for clothing that could help improve his treatment experience but found nothing that was both practical and comfortable. After months of research, they decided to create their own solution and began designing the jackets which are now the signature product for Chemo Cozy. Sadly, Greg passed away in 2015. His vision and mission live on through each infusion patient who has a better experience because of the fleece he and Ellen designed."

    Promising review: "Bought this for a family member dealing with chemo. I wasn't sure about their size but Ellen was very helpful. The jacket fit and is much appreciated! Highly recommend this. There aren't a lot of items out there geared toward men going through chemo. So glad I found this!" —Susan

    Model wearing the brown top

    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 $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 13 colors).

    15. A luxe comfy hoodie with a built-in sleep mask that is about to be your go-to lewk anytime you're in a building with freezing AC or on a chilly plane trying to catch ZZZs. Everyone's gonna wanna know where you got this. Prepare yourself to spill the tea.

    Pond Los Angeles

    This brand is proudly woman-owned and Asian American-owned. The designs are made in the USA — in California where the brand is based, to be exact. Pond Los Angeles also intentionally uses a woman-led manufacturer to create their pieces. That said, I also own this hoodie in black and I really love it. I traveled with it to a cold beach earlier in the spring AND more recently caught a flight with it and the truth is I'm never going on a trip without it again. Ever. The sleep mask was perfect on the plane and I slept like a baby. I was also never freezing while wearing it in the airport or during the flight, which I usually am. Must-have, forever.

    Promising review: "I fly a lot and am constantly trying to find a hoodie with a big hood to cover my eyes so I can catch up on some beauty sleep on the plane. I saw this product on Instagram and knew it would be a game-changer. I was able to use it recently for the first time on an early morning flight, and let me tell you, it is EVERYTHING I was looking for and more. It’s comfy, cozy, oversized, and the eye covers make you feel like you’re in a whole other world and not packed like a sardine on a plane. My over-ear headphone fit perfectly under it, and I got the best sleep I’ve had on a plane — EVER! Like other reviews have said, it is big, so size down if you want something a little more snug. It’s a little big, but I love my stuff oversized, so I am fine. I have been wearing it every day at home and can’t wait to get the black and blush one!" —Heather G.

    Get it from Pond Los Angeles for $108 (originally $129; available in sizes S–L and three colors, including black and oak.)

I'm 5-foot-1, around 115 pounds with big hips (36 inches, 26-inch waist) so that gives you a general idea of my size relative to the pants. But these are now my go-to homebody (or casual friend's house brunch) pants. ^_^" —Manateaz

If you're short, then per the reviews, you'll have to get these hemmed OR wear them as going-out pants with heels. Also, make sure you take note of the different sizing since it's separated into adults and junior sizing.

    Promising review: "These were EXACTLY what I was looking for! I wear these under dresses for work to prevent 'chub rub' or for doing chores around the house or working out. They do not roll up on me, even when I am jogging. They feel substantial, a bit thicker than typical cheap leggings, but not too much to feel bulky or noticeable under dresses." —StellaStars
