American Giant Sweatpants
American Giant Sweatpants

American Giant makes some pretty thick and warm sweatpants. Their Classic Sweatpant comes in a wide array of subtle, muted colors and has a relatively slim fit. They have a few different cuts and styles of pants to choose from.

They aren’t cheap, but they’re made in the USA and generally regarded as high quality. They’re also durable since they use high-quality cotton and different techniques like a “cover stitch” for reinforcement. The type of fabric used may feel a little stiff at first but will soften quickly with wash and wear.

Even though the price may be a little higher than you might usually pay, it is tough to find clothing made in the U.S.A. without having to spend a little more than your average garment.

Pros:

  • Great Quality
  • Made in the U.S.A
  • Durable

Cons:

  • Pricey

Why we love them:

American Giant makes comfy sweats that are amazingly well made and is one of those rare companies that produce clothes in the U.S.

 

Outdoor Voices All Day Sweatpant
Outdoor Voices All Day Sweatpant

Many women regard the All Day Sweatpant as the most comfortable sweatpants you are going to find anywhere. Women love this style because the fabric is very soft (‘startling soft’ according to New York Magazine), they have a very flattering fit, and a lovely taper at the ankle- so they don’t look sloppy.

The All Day Sweat comes in five subtle colors that work well with almost any top. Despite having one of the softest fabrics going, they hold up well to washing and don’t lose their shape. The material is often described as cozy, but light so they are a style that you can wear year-round.

Pros:

  • Very soft fabric
  • Flattering fit
  • Looks polished

Cons:

  • They are a longer length so may not work for all leg lengths

Why we love them:

They look great, are super soft, and versatile enough to wear for many different activities.

Lululemon Ready To Rulu Pant
Lululemon Ready To Rulu Pant

The Lululemon Ready To Rulu Pant is a popular, soft jogger favorite of many women (including the writers at Refinery29). It uses the breathable Rulu™ fabric, which is fantastic for sweat-wicking as well as comfort.

The Ready to Rulu have a bit of Lycra added to the material that gives it some stretch, so they work well for working out or lounging. They are reasonably fitted for a jogger style. If you want a looser feel, you may want to consider sizing up. One other thing to note about this style is that it’s a high-rise waist that gives you a little extra coverage if you’re moving around.

Overall, the Ready to Rulu is a versatile, generally flattering design that’ll work well for most body types (if you like a tight fit.)

Pros:

  • Sweat-wicking
  • Stretchy
  • High rise waist

Cons:

  • Slim fit may not work well for everyone

Roots Women's Sweats
Roots Women’s Sweats

Roots make some of the coziest sweats around. Most of the Roots styles are made from soft fleece that feels super comfy and very thick, so they’re perfect for fall or winter in colder climates.

One of their most popular styles is the slim sweatpant (pictured). Even though they’re slim-fit, they’re a little bit baggy through the hips and thighs and then slim through the leg, so they look tailored.

Some of the colors that Roots offer are also a little different. These sweats are always offered in lots of colors, with one of the best being the ‘salt and pepper,’ which is grey with a little bit of black mixed in. They’re a bit pricey for an at-home pant, but if you can get them on sale, they’re well worth it and should last for a long time.

Pros:

  • The fabric is very soft and warm
  • Lots of colors and fits to choose from

Cons:

  • None -they are worth the price

What we love:

Roots sweats and hoodies are a personal favorite, especially for colder weather when you want to be warm and cozy.
