The Most Comfortable Sweatpants According To R29 Editors & Readers

Ever since we traded in our office outfits for more casual WFH wardrobes, sweatpants have skyrocketed from the bottom drawer to the forefront of our closets. And, with winter in full effect, there's no better choice in versatile stay-at-home attire than this loungewear staple. In an effort to narrow down the best of the best, the most comfortable sweatpants, we went straight to the source: you.

We started our hunt inside Refinery29's Slack channels, where a passionate discussion ensued about which sweatpants reign supreme. We then asked our dedicated readers (aka you!) to spill the beans on which comfy pants are must-buy material — and the ensuing style recs did not disappoint. Read on to peep what we, you, and your crew are lounging in (with sweatpant-selfies included): there's everything from cotton-fleece classics perfect for working cross-legged on the couch to modern-tailored pairs stylish enough to wear with loafers for a masked coffee run.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.

Lululemon Scuba High-Rise Jogger Fleece

"I've had these pants for a few years and they STILL win my #1 Quarantine Sweats award. They are warm and presentable enough to wear to the grocery store but also comfy enough to hop in bed with. Most of my other sweats are under $20 and on their last leg (no pun intended), so sometimes paying extra actually goes a long way. Lululemon sweatpants are dangerous because I want to wear them all of the time, but I feel like that's how you know you snagged a great pair of sweats." –Alexandra Polk, R29 Lifestyle Writer

Dedicated. Joggers Lund Hummingbirds Off-White

"I don’t own many sweatpants but the pair I wear every day, to lounge around the apartment, is ridiculously comfy. They're made from super soft and high-quality organic cotton by the Swedish brand Dedicated. Despite being a petite female, I wear their men’s joggers because, for one, they have much cooler prints (the style I own is currently available in a mushroom print), and secondly, I want them to be loose and oversized for maximum comfort. I rotate between the two pairs of sweatpants I own from this brand and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another pair. And don’t tell anyone but I basically lived in them during lockdown so I can whole-heartedly vouch for how comfy and cozy they are." –Michelle, fashion blogger

They are the best joggers ever, even better than most major retailers.  Here's why: They're made with the softest cotton fleece, they come in sizes S-4X with long inseams that range 35-39.5 inches, are shrinkage-free, have been seen on WNBA players, and are 100% made for tall women in mind.
