Please post tips for comfy clothes. Personally I love cotton tee shirts and pyjamas. I have fibro which makes me sensitive to lots of Man made fabrics and products. I crash a lot and have chronic pain so I wear comfy clothes. It's easier to dress and undress without buttons etc. But very limiting and costly. So if you have any suggestions or ideas please post. About clothes. Thanks x

    @debbiedo49 have you tried wearing loose jumpsuits at all?
    I find them comfortable as I suffer with chronic pain so I know it's important to feel good about yourself but also that your clothing isn't too tight on problem areas. Hope I've helped. :)

    Hi,
    I think you can try clothing from Inswe. They have many comfortable clothes. And you can try reading reviews about their clothing. Hope it'll help.

    I have found gym leggings really comfortable, they are stretchy and soft and I feel better in them than big jogging bottoms!

    Morning @debbiedo49! I too appreciate comfy clothes! The wide fit trousers have been amazing for me. Usually elasticated, soft but also look pretty smart and can get them in a range of colours or patterns!

    I got a cotton kaftan when in Turkey years ago ..( An Adidas kaftan 🙂.).I found it very comfy , no buttons , easy to put on . I am not of a middle east background ( I,m scottish) ...but the full length kaftan is comfy , either as pyjamas or wearing around the house , especially in this warm weather

    No I haven't tried jumpsuits as I am tall and round lol hard to get the right size and costly, maybe some time in the future if I shrink lol thanks.
    Yes kaftan would be comfy. I envy Asian type clothing like tunics and pants probably hand made or custom made

    If you are in the UK I recommend this website http://www.disabled-clothing.co.uk/ 

    It is a maker of adaptive clothing for the disabled community. I strongly recommend spending time on the website and seeing what products are available. We have ordered some pairs of lovely incontinence pants in the past from their site.
    They worked well for my boy. If you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

    I live in my pjs all day. Now its getting cold i wear thick jogging pants with a big,  thick hand knitted arran jumper i got on ebay. I used to be a big fashion victim but as i dont go out very much i no longer make much effort . I stick with what is comfy and warm. If my friends are popping around i wear leggings or yoga pants and an oversized sweatshirt. I prefer natural fibres to synthetics but they can be expensive because i tend to buy from only 2-3 retailers when i buy new clothes, thats why i buy second hand , its cheaper and i know what will fit me.

    I  wear a lot of yoga leggings both supersoft boot cut style and lycra type fitted too. Super comfy and I also use a well known fabric softener 😂 which keeps it so much better, although restricted to one softener or i end up itching like mad! I also have fibro and can find my skin ridiculously sensitive. Interesting when teaching yoga! I always soak new clothing in softener for a while before wearing. Hope you get sorted it really is a difficult process finding suitable fabric. 🙏
    Yoga heals the soul 🙏💖

    If you can't keep warm easily, shop for cashmere or pure wool garments during the sales, as  artificial fibres don't provide the same warmth.  If your skin is compromised, look for natural fibres such as cotton -and also buy silk in the sales - because such skin needs soft breathable fibres - artificial fibres aren't as comfortable.
