For cozy lounge pants, the best fabrics are:
- french terry
- brushed fleece
- sweater knit
- cotton lycra/spandex
- stretch velvet
For a more stylish look, choose a knit fabric with some structure, such as:
- ponte de roma
- heavier weight cotton lycra/spandex
- liverpool/bullet/double knit
Whatever you use, make sure the waistband fabric has good recovery (especially if there’s no elastic or drawstring). No one wants to be continually pulling their joggers up!
