Comfort is something we long for and clothes can really make a difference at times. If they are scratchy, tight or confining they seem to increase our pain level. But I think we all have our favorite articles of clothing we wear that are the most comfortable we own. Maybe yours are over sized t-shirts and sweats or a jogging suit. Your comfy clothes might be a tank top and shorts or jammies and a long robe. What do you wear to feel comfortable?

During the day my favorite clothes are sweats and a very large t-shirt. With fibromyalgia some days just the feel of clothing on the skin is painful so the softer the clothes the easier they are on the body. Also for me, I like my comfy clothes to be loose fitting...that's a must. It's hard to look radiant or alluring in these comfy clothes but I have a very understanding hubby. I do have some more captivating evening clothing that is soft also so I can be comfortable and more attractive also. smilewinkgrin blush smilewinkgrin

How about you??? What kind of clothes do you wear to feel comfortable?

Well in the summer, a loose fitting knit sports shirt with shorts! I absolutely hate long pants in the summer time! In the winter I am a sweater fan, and I love wearing Bib overalls! and soft flannel shirts! I have often said if they would make Bibs out of suit material, and have a matching sports coat I would wear them to church with a shirt and tie! And I think the maker of them would get rich!

My feet are always cold and I have bootie type socks that I wear constantly.  They range from stripes to solid pastels.  I even have a pair with Ariel on them from my son.  My husband laughs cause it will be in the 70's and I still have them on.  They are like a security blanket for me.

For me it is pj's.  I live in pj bottoms and a soft fitting loose shirt.  Like you, Chutz, I have to have the loose fitting clothing on my skin.  My husband too lives in tshirts and sweat pants.  We are retired and watch the baby during the day, so we are all comfortable.  I even take her tight fitting bottoms off and let her be in her diaper during the day. hahahahaha
Thanks, as always, for the topic of the day.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

   Dear Chutz,
      Skirts. Cotton shirts. All year long. Heavy skirts and soft sweaters in the winter thou.

Sweats, pj's, and t-shirts! I'm all for comfy & practical clothing. The first thing I do when I get home is change into something comfy (if I'm not already wearing sweats, as I'll often wear them to class). If I'm home all day & don't have to go out, I'll just stay in my pj's!

NO SHOES.........the second I can get those off I do.  I wear shorts (after work) pretty much year round.  If it is cooler, then I add a sweatshirt.  But the NO SHOES is critical.  I hate anything on my feet.  They are quite numb and I don't like the feeling of shoes as I can't feel the ground.
