Thought leggings couldn't get any more comfortable? Think again. Leggings are notorious for being the go-to casual basic, but if maximum comfort is what you are searching for, there is one key factor to consider while shopping for leggings. Most of your workout or performance leggings are made to support you, resist sweat, and stay in place. All of those things are great when you're exercising, but when you're just sitting around at home all day, that kind of super-tight feeling isn't ideal. The trick? Make sure your leggings are made of at least 50% cotton.
Cotton leggings are a game-changer when it comes to at-home lounge attire. I don't know about you, but as I've grown more accustomed to my at-home lifestyle, I've found that my normal workout leggings are actually pretty uncomfortable (which is why I've been living in sweats). However, intentionally purchasing cotton leggings versus spandex or polyester ones has enabled me to wear them literally all day long. Thanks to the soft cotton DNA of the leggings, I am left feeling like I'm wearing pajamas, and to be honest, that's the vibe these days.
Ahead, shop 29 of the best pairs of cotton leggings on the market and get ready for maximum comfort from this moment forward.
