Tuck these timeless tanks into jeans, shorts and skirts for a clean, put-together look. Or wear them with casual terry pants around the house. The choice is yours. Most color and size combos are offered at about $20 per two-pack or about $10 per tank.

We suggest ordering several packs because these will easily be your new go-to layering pieces and are so affordable it doesn't make sense to risk them selling out.

JJWinks Maxi Dress with Built-in Bra

Built-in bra, anyone? This brilliant, flattering dress is one of our all-time faves because it's so easy to jazz up or leave totally casual. To be honest, it's really supposed to be a pajama-style basic, but we've been known to add accessories and wear it out to dinner.

Frankly, we want to live in a world where more dresses do the hard work of being acceptable in all living situations and hold our ladies up at the same time. It's the future we were promised.

Skechers DVF Flare Leggings

Three cheers for DVF and Skechers delivering us the comfortable lounge clothing we truly deserve (and need). But really—our editorial staff owns and wears these buttery-soft bootcut leggings and swears they're the absolute best. The medium-high rise waistband neatly cinches us in at all the right spots, while clever back pockets offer just enough space to store a phone, keys or lip balm.

Love the style and designer collab? You'll want to check out all sorts of other matching gear from the collection like a trendy bucket hat, sports bra and our fave animal-print arch support slides.

Cropped Tank and Wide Leg Pants

Choose from dozens of colors and sizes XS through XXL to suit most body types and personal styles, and then decide if you want to wear this comfy duo together or as separate pieces. We love the elastic waist and boxy, flowy silhouette that flatters so many shapes.

Not used to crop tops or feeling nervous about trying the style? Try pairing the skirt with a very high-waisted skirt for a fuller-coverage take on this trendy top.

Cozy Earth Shorts

We love this brand's ultra-soft bamboo fabric that offers a sustainable, stylish take on the best lounge clothes. Available in loads of sizes and plenty of colors, these are so comfortable you'll have to actively negotiate with yourself to wear anything else. Stuff all your stuff (or the kids')  in the deep, spacious pockets.

The company also makes one of our favorite nursing pajamas sets, so be sure to browse the entire site. And yes, everything is easily machine washable and most styles are fairly stain-resistant. Win!

Quince European Linen Swing Dress

Look dressed up without losing an ounce of comfort in this Quince linen swing dress. It's a summery, stylish piece you'll reach for time and time again. Made of expensive-feeling (and looking!) European linen is just the start of why we love it—it's the affordable price point, expanded size range and multiple colors and prints that have us head-over-heels.

Thinking about getting pregnant? Great, because this lounge clothing option will serve you particularly well in your first and second trimesters, too. We love a versatile wardrobe piece!

Wide Leg Linen Pants with Drawstring

These wide-leg linen pants come in both regular and plus sizes, dozens of fun colors and neutrals and feature OMG—functional pockets. Ideal for hanging at home, running errands, pairing with a smart blazer at the office or sipping icy drinks by a beach, we love this style for literally every day of the week.

We love the cinched, drawstring waist that's accented and supported with heavy-duty elastic ruching. Popular colors and sizes tend to sell out though, so hurry up and get a few of your faves. The price is very happily under $20 for a limited time.

Cleobella Acadia Top

This Cleobella top is downright gorgeous, but it's also a lounge clothing staple you'll live in. A flowy silhouette with plenty of breathing room makes it a comfortable summer classic you'll pair with everything from linen drawstring pants to Y2K denim. It comes in sizes XS through XL and features GOTS-certified organic cotton that feels like an absolute dream.


swoveralls, best lounge clothing Merchant

Imagine your most treasured overalls had a very chic lovechild with your fave sweatpants ever. That's what Swoveralls are, and we're obsessed. These come in regular and plus sizes, a variety of fun colors—and there are even options for men and kids. Adjustable straps, machine washable material and functional pockets make these daily-wear staples you'll wonder how you ever lived without.

We basically live in these and think you will, too. (And it's one reason they made our list of first Mother's Day gift ideas.)

Maurice's Floral Smocked Jumpsuit

This green-hued jumpsuit is soft, flattering and machine washable with any of your best laundry detergents. We love how easy it is to curl up in with a good book or for movie night, and how stylish it is to wear out and about. You'll be the most put-together mom on the playground in this number.

Wear it with sneakers, sandals or no shoes at all because you're committed to staying home all day. The best part? It's so affordable. Both plus and regular sizes are under $45.

Maurice's Palazzo Pants

Look like you just stepped off the runway in this citrus-hued matching set from Maurice's. Not ready to commit to the entire head-to-toe look? That's cool. The stretchy waist and loose, wide-leg silhouette of the pants is perfect to pair with a white tee, summer tank or whatever other basic staple top you can't get enough of lately.

Heading on vacation to a high-end all-inclusive family resort? This ensemble easily doubles as chic evening resort wear you'll eagerly show off.

Amazon Essentials Maxi Dress (regular + plus)

amazon basics tank dress, best lounge clothing for women Merchant

Dozens of solid colors and regular and plus sizes XXS through 4XL make this affordable Amazon dress a winner in our book. It's lounge clothing you'll love wearing for almost every occasion. School and camp pick-ups and drop-offs will feel more like staying in bed, yet magically put-together (ah, the goal!).

Plus, the price is absolutely irresistible. Buy a few at about $25 each. Treat yo'self and your inherent desire to be pantsless. Come cooler weather, top it with a cardigan or denim jacket. Fair warning: some petite shoppers note this style is a bit too long for them, hitting below the ankle. It's likely best for women who measure about 5'3" or taller.


What should I look for in the best lounge clothing for women?

Lounge clothing is meant to be comfortable! Look for fabrics that stretch and move with your body, elastic waistbands and soft, buttery knits. It's also important to focus on machine-washable fabrics, because these wardrobe staples will easily become your go-to pieces that get the most action.

Should lounge clothing be washed every day?

We spoke to a fabric hygiene expert, Mallory Smythe, who told us that daily washing isn't necessary for most lounge clothing. "If you're just hanging out at home and catching up and work or Netflix, you can easily squeeze a few wears between washing. On the other hand, if you use your loungewear for long days at the park or getting sweaty at the gym, you may need more frequent washing.
