When Pajamas Just Won’t Do
When you have chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia or any other chronic illness there are some days when you just can’t get out of your pajamas. Days when you crash badly have zero energy and feel a lot of pain. On those days you just have to stay in bed.
On those days, pajamas are definitely your best friend. There’s nothing more comfortable than a super soft roomy pair of pajamas in cozy brushed cotton fabric for winter or lightweight and cool bamboo fabric for summer.
But, then other days come around when you feel better, you have more energy and want to get out of your pajamas. The simple act of getting out of bed, taking a bath or shower and pulling on some comfortable clothing rather than a clean pair of pj’s definitely makes you feel better.
Of course, you still need to be as comfortable and pain free as possible and choose clothes that are easy to wear. On days when your energy is limited but you are able to lounge on the sofa, women’s jogger pants and yoga pants are an ideal choice. And as an added bonus, you don’t need to think too hard about what to wear with them.
Those in between days when you’re not completely bed bound but not 100% bursting with energy, comfort is still important and this style of pants are a great solution. They’re easy to pull on and provided you buy the right ones, are super comfortable to wear. You can even go out to run errands wearing them and they look acceptable.
Perhaps you are well enough to be travelling somewhere? This style of pants is great for travel too. Not only for wearing during a plane or train journey, but super easy to pack and care for during your travels.
They can be easily teamed with a t shirt or hoodie and sneakers for a casual look. Or dress them up with a better looking casual top, a soft open swingy cardigan, a scarf and some comfortable flats shoes or short boots to run errands.
When choosing jogger or yoga pants the type of fabric used is important in making sure they are soft, and the pants have sufficient stretch to be comfortable. Wide soft waistbands are crucial to avoid any uncomfortable elastic or fasteners jabbing in to your waist.
Particularly if you are a fibromyalgia sufferer avoiding too tight waistbands is important. And a drawstring waist can make adjusting the size for a good fit much easier.
