As you get older, you might find that comfort becomes more and more important when you’re picking out clothes. Everyone likes to be comfortable, but sometimes it can feel as though you have to choose to be fashionable or to being comfy.
However, these two factors don’t have to be mutually exclusive when it comes to clothing. Here are some ways that you can look and feel fabulous.
How Comfort Can Help You Look Better
Believe it or not, comfortable clothes can help you to look better. If you’re comfortable in your clothes, then you aren’t distracted by them. If you’re wearing a too-tight dress or itchy clothing, then you’re constantly thinking about your discomfort. That comes across. If you don’t feel great, then it’s harder to look great.
So, comfortable clothes are important for your well-being and your appearance alike. High-quality clothes are also more likely to be comfortable, unlike fast-fashion options. More and more people are recognizing that comfort matters, and a lot of fashion is trending towards comfort.

Pick Clothes that Fit
It seems like an obvious solution, but almost everyone seems to have a garment that’s just a bit too small for them. Just because you can get into something, it doesn’t mean that it fits properly. If clothing is too small, it will dig in and feel uncomfortable. Sometimes the size up is far more comfortable, and usually more flattering as well.
Start From the Bottom Layer
Before you can focus on your main clothes, you should start with your underwear. You’d be surprised at how huge an impact your underwear can have on your comfort and your outfit. First, make sure you don’t have any dreaded panty lines, especially if you’re wearing tighter clothes.
But the most important part of your underwear when it comes to comfort has to be your bra. A poorly fitted bra isn’t just uncomfortable, it can cause health problems over time. Some people also can’t wear wired bras for a similar reason. Comfortable wireless bras are a great solution, as they feel nice to wear and they aren’t obvious under your clothing. If you want to find your correct size, you can refer to a bra size chart in inches or centimeters.
Comfy Looks to Try Out
Remember that comfortable clothes don’t begin and end with baggy sweatpants and a loose t-shirt (although you can rock this look if you want). You can be comfortable in all kinds of great looks. Here are some great examples
For casual moments, there’s nothing quite like pairing a cozy sweater with mom jeans for a comfortable and warm outfit. Pair with ankle boots and a shoulder bag, along with your preferred accessories. As the summer gets closer, switch this out for some shorts and a vintage t-shirt, paired with some sneakers for the ultimate casual summer look.
If you want to dress up a bit, then consider a stylish shirt and wide pants. This look is perfect for business attire and smart-casual events alike. You could also wear a classic maxi dress for a more feminine yet equally comfortable outfit.
