Loungewear - A Whole New Trend
New Trend for At Home Clothing
The new trend in clothing, especially for the working women is about comfortable, casual lounge ware. Manufacturers are reporting that sales for pajamas have increased over the last year with new styles and fabrics, such as bamboo. However, 100% cotton is still very popular.
The reason for the change could be the tight economy, and we are spending more time nesting at home; thus upgrading from sweats to something a little more attractive or maybe when mom comes home from work she needs a break. She doesn't want to change clothes two more times before bed. She has children to care for, a meal to cook and quite often general household choirs. So, now we see active wear more often, and not just running shorts, tights, capries or sweats, but a whole new choice of clothing.

What is loungewear?
Loungewear is considered to be pajamas and yoga pants, hoodies and tanks with consumers looking for that panache they aim for at work, but they want the kind of outfits you can snuggle down on the couch for evening relaxation. Whether you prefer pjs, nightgowns or yoga pants the comfort for lounging around the house is relaxing and casual. After working all day, it feels good to come home and get into something comfortable to relax. There are many new styles available.
Softer fabrics with bolder colors are everywhere, with fits that flatter without revealing too much. We see new innovations, such as shelf bras being put in pajamas. Yoga pants are hot right now, as they are not so clingy but they are attractive to wear. Some people still like the velour sweat suits because they are warm.

A few Do Not try!
There are some loungewear please don’ts! I saw a girl at the grocery store a few days ago with pajamas on, nothing special, just regular pajamas and it didn't look good.
- PJ’s outside: Its okay to wear them to the curb to get the paper or mail, but not to the grocery store or mall. And, slippers would make a bad situation worse. Wear shoes!
- An inappropriate logo placement: If you’re over 25, no logos, no exceptions.
- Tight is not all right: If the shapes and indentations of an individual’s body parts can be readily identified, then you need to buy a bigger size. That really isn't very comfortable anyway and certainly not pleasing to the eyes of other people.
Enjoy the new comfort and freedom with these new styles!
As you can see, there are some very comfortable lounge wear items available in soft fabrics. Everyone wants to be comfortable around their home, and this new lounge wear trend makes it happen.
