It’s a fact of life that as we get older, things that we once thought to be simple can become increasingly difficult. Due to bodily impairments and aches and pains that didn’t plague us in our youth, everything from getting in and out of the tub to putting our pants on in the morning can quickly become a headache that, frankly, we don’t always have the energy to deal with. Enter: the best loungewear pieces for women over 50.

Hanes Eco-Smart Sweatpants
Where to buy: From $7.50, Amazon
If you’re finding the band on your lounge pants is too binding, reach for these eco-smart sweatpants from Hanes. Their soft top waist won’t pinch your skin, plus they've got an open bottom that will allow your legs to breathe for maximum blood circulation — something that’s important to prevent blood clots, the likelihood of which increases with age. They’re affordable, machine-washable, and come in nine different colors.
Lunya Cool Every Body Tee
Where to buy: $88, Lunya
We know what you’re thinking: $88 for a T-shirt?! Before you write this one off, however, hear us out. Much like the best pajamas for menopause, this tee was specifically-designed with a purpose beyond simply schlubbing around the house. Its special pima cotton fibers are enhanced with a touch of silver that's meant to keep you cool and dry all day —and night! — long, hot flashes be darned.
Wrote one reviewer suffering from night sweats, “I’m in my 12th year of hot flashes, which means waking up at night to throw the covers off. I wore the Cool Every Body tee and it kept me cool enough to sleep through the night. What a relief! It’s roomy and comfortable as well.”
Added another: “Comfy, cool, and flattering. I want to wear it all day.”
Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Ultra-Light Lounge Pants
Where to buy: From $104, Amazon
Sweatpants are great, but if you live in a particularly warm climate, they’re not always the most comfortable as far as temperature is concerned. These Barefoot Dreams pants allow you the freedom to lounge about in cool coziness thanks to an ultra-light knit material. There’s an elastic waistband for stretch and they come in eight different hues.
Softies Snuggle Lounger
Where to buy: $94, Amazon
This snuggly one-piece is as easy as it gets when it comes to loungewear. Simply throw it over your head and go! It’s made with a soft, cozy polyester blend that comes in nine colors and has a tall cowl neck to keep you nice and warm. There’s also a front kangaroo pocket for cold hands.
Take it from this reviewer, who wrote, “OMG, this thing is heaven! So soft, so comfy, it is worth the price.”
This pick also made 65-year-old Oprah Winfrey’s Favorite things list of 2019, and if it’s good enough for Oprah it’s good enough for us!
Splendid Flight Cardi
Where to buy: $98, Splendid
Loungewear is perfect for travel, since you’ll want to be as comfortable as possible, and this aptly named Flight cardi from Splendid is as good as it gets. It features an extra-long hem to cover your trunk (a huge plus for notoriously cold planes), has a fashionable draped silhouette that you’ll be confident to wear in public. It's also equipped with a handy hood. What more could you ask for?
