Is there anything better than mom loungewear? We’re talking cool mom loungewear, not regular mom loungewear — clothing that’s equal parts comfy and cute, and versatile enough for running errands, binging Netflix, and attending Zoom meetings if you’ve joined the WFH club. It’s our humble opinion that loungewear has never really gotten the kind of glory it deserves, whether you’re a new mom (perhaps you even need nursing access), or a kid-toting pro who can pack a diaper bag in seconds flat. But there’s a lot to be said for comfortable clothes that are not sloppy or frumpy looking, and with more people than ever working from home now, the game has officially changed. Soft loungewear items like leggings, matching sweatsuits, hoodies, and more are coming to the fashion forefront because, well, they’re the pieces we’re living in–literally. And the best news? Some of the best lounge clothes are on Amazon, so go ahead and add them to your next Prime order (yesss!).
To make the shopping search a bit easier, we’ve narrowed down the best women’s loungewear pieces and comfortable clothes we are wearing while at home and around town. From cute women’s sweatpants and biker shorts to airy tanks fluffy loungewear tops, the choices ahead are some of the most beloved buys on the internet. Meet your new errand-running and do-everything-from-home looks. We think you’ll be very happy together.
Best Mom Loungewear Tops
If you’re obsessed with cashmere hoodies but not looking to spend a fortune, Goodthreads’ longline cardigan is a cozy, affordable alternative. Hallelujah! Made of an acrylic blend, mid-gauge stretch yarn, this fuzzy topper has all the makings of a go-to piece: side pockets, lightweight comfort, and an easy, laid-back silhouette that looks good with just about anything. This is the layering cardi you can wear year-round (think winter days or summer nights) and the type of classic piece you’ll keep for ages.
Come mid-summer, the days are long and HOT. If you’re anything like us, then by mid-afternoon, you’re ready to shed any unnecessary layers and treat yo’self to a popsicle with the kids. Perhaps, that’s why this yoga racerback tank caught our attention. They come in a pack of two (choose from a slew of vibrant colorways), which is a steal when you factor in cost-per-wear. They’re made from a moisture-wicking fabric to keep you cool even in 90-degree heat. Our favorite part is the sexy open back—these were made to be worn with a sports bra for a little peekaboo action.
This oversized crewneck sweatshirt has bestseller status and over 13,000 Amazon reviews. And, it’s no surprise why: It’s lightweight, super soft, is long enough to wear with leggings, and yes, it has pockets. It’s totally cute, and worn with a few long necklaces, can even be dressed up for drinks with the girls. Oh, and did we mention it’s under 20 bucks? And comes in eight bold colors? Check, check … check, check, check. We’ll take one of each.
We love a versatile piece that goes with everything so you can really get your money’s worth. Enter M.M. LaFleur’s fine terry Harris Sweatshirt. It features a modern relaxed fit and trendy cowl neck that looks polished enough Zoom meetings and errands, but with the comfy feel of a sweatshirt. You’ll love wearing this flattering top with leggings or joggers — or the occasional pair of jeans if you’re feeling *really* motivated. (Side note: It’s also perfect for traveling!) Available in pearl and smoky taupe shades.
It’s a super-soft sweater … it’s a trendy waffle top … it’s both! Bobeau’s Waffle Knit Top features a swingy silhouette that’s as flattering as it is comfy. While you’ll feel like you’re still in your PJ’s, you’ll look ready to face the world — or rather, your colleagues during that surprise Zoom meeting. Available in four goes-with-anything colors.

Slip this on, and one word will come to mind: “Ahhh.” (In fact, don’t be surprised if you hear yourself saying it out loud.) This buttery soft hoodie is made from smooth micromodal and spandex for just the right amount of stretch. It’s also lightweight and breathable, so it’s an optimal layer for wearing indoors (or out on a grocery run in slightly cool weather). From lounging, to strolling, to — well — work-from-home-ing, you’ll love that this sweatshirt is so versatile … plus, it’s way less frumpy than your old college hoodie. It’s available in 7 different colors — and don’t forget the matching pants!
We’re living in a day and age where sweatshirts are the work uniform of choice. If you’re employed at a casual workplace where they’re suitable for Zoom meetings, you still probably want to wear a “nice sweatshirt” (coined by an actual Scary Mommy employee) to make virtual appearances — you know, as opposed to your ratty paint-stained college one. Enter, your new “nice sweatshirt” of choice: RicherPoorer’s recycled (yes, recycled!) fleece hoodie in the cool new mirage wash. Each garment is hand-dyed, dreamily soft, and totally on-trend. But if neutrals are more your thing, it also comes in 5 other solid hues.
Best Mom Loungewear Sweatpants
We love a good summer loungewear set that’s made for doing just that—lounging around the house when the kiddos aren’t around (a rarity, we know). Tie-dye lovers rejoice! Get ready to lose your sh*t ‘cuz this ruffled short duo comes in a variety of tie-dye patterns and colors. (Don’t want “in” on the tie-dye action? It comes in a cheetah and star print, too.) Doubling as jammies that can be worn on the back porch while sipping your morning coffee, this matchy-matchy duo is so comfy you’ll never want to take it off. The material is incredibly soft, breathable, and non-irritating. Personally, we love the button-down henley top… it screams not-trying-too-hard, ya know?!
Women, if you’ve been looking for cute sweatpants–sweatpants with pockets, mind you–your search may just be over. Baleaf’s cotton joggers are billed as active yoga sweatpants but the only thing we want to do in these is CHILL–and we’re apparently not alone. Customers are feeling this comfy pair in a big way, as evidenced by over 1,500 positive reviews on Amazon. That may be thanks in large part to the elastic waistband, the lightweight fabric, the tapered, flattering fit, and of course, the pockets (two side, one back).
If you’ve been searching for sweatpants with pockets that don’t look super…sweatpants-y, these camo print joggers are a worthwhile pick. They’re made of a substantial-weight fabric and feature a drawstring elastic waist, so they’re comfy without looking like you put no effort in–or left the house in your flimsy pajama bottoms. These joggers come in over 30 color and print options (whew!), though we’re partial to the classic-cool vibe of the camouflage print.
Bike shorts are back, baby! You heard it first: Bike shorts will NO longer be receiving a hard pass from us. We never thought we’d live to see the day but we’re finally onboard. If you live in leggings, then Everlane’s “The Perform Bike Short” will likely be in heavy rotation during these upcoming summer months. Hit the ground running by teaming them alongside a trendy sports bra and ugly “dad” trainers for the yoga studio. Just out running errands? Keep things on the DL with a tie-dye t-shirt (as shown above) for—dare we say—an athleisure lewk. May we also add in that they have an extra-high waist, minimal seams, and an inside pocket that will hold keys and essential cards? They’re also made from a sweat-wicking material (58% recycled nylon to be exact) to keep you dry when on the go. What more could you ask for in a biker short? Snag ’em while you can!
Best Mom Loungewear Bralette
Underwire? LOL! Why put yourself through such torture if you’re not leaving the house (or, quite honestly, even if you are)? Support the girls in comfort with RicherPoorer’s cult-favorite bralette, which is so soft, you might forget to take it off and wear it to bed. Available in 10 neutral-to-rich shades.
