Listen to Cute Plus Size Loungewear From Amazon For The Chronically Ill or continue reading.
Throughout my chronic life, I have learned to rely on the comfort of certain fabrics. The trouble is they are not always available where I typically purchase my clothing.
Fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis flare worse for me during the summer months. This is why I fill my wardrobe with loungewear that can be worn anywhere.
No more being embarrassed about answering the door or making a mad dash to the pharmacy.
I should also note that although each option is plus-sized, many of the items featured are also available in smaller sizes.

My Favorite Plus Size Loungewear From Amazon
Plus Size Sleep Tank Tops
Because I overheat while asleep, I prefer to sleep in a tank top rather than a shirt with sleeves. I also prefer having my arms free from restriction while I toss and turn all night.
Another reason I prefer sleeping with spaghetti straps because I can weave the strap for my PEMF device through it. Since my spine will not allow me to sleep on my back, it’s a perfect time for me to run treatments.
Kimonos Instead of Robes
I have been a fan of kimonos for quite some time. Mostly because my weight often fluctuates due to extended periods of bed rest or activity. But until this past year, I never really thought about adding them to my loungewear wardrobe. So I bought one Made by Johnny kimonos from Amazon in March and fell in love with it. So in love that I purchased seven more in different colors and prints.
They are soft and lightweight. I wear them over my nighttime tank top and at Disneyland with my daytime tanks! I prefer them versus a robe because they do not look like pajamas and can go from bed to Starbucks!
Allodynia causes my upper arms super sensitive to temperature, especially cool blasts of air conditioning. My kimonos prevent unnecessary flares.
Here are a few other fun options!

Lightweight Pajama/Lounge Pants and Shorts
I do not know about you, but I cannot stand having my legs touching skin to skin. Throughout my entire fibro life, I have had to sleep with long pajama pants. Capri-cut pajamas won’t do, I must have a lightweight fabric swirling around my ankles.
I love that the lounge pants are lightweight and can pass as flowy summer pants in a pinch.
However, during the day and only in the summer, my legs like to be set free. That is where lounge shorts come into play.
Other Plus Size Loungewear From Amazon Options
Roomy, but without a lot of fabric that might trip you up around the ankles, harem pants make a wonderful loungewear option. Pair with a tank top/t-shirt and a shawl or kimono, and you are ready to meet a friend for coffee.
Caftans provide comfort while keeping you cool. The only downside I see to wearing one is if you are short. However, as someone who is vertically challenged, I usually get tripped up in long dresses. So while they may not be for me, they could be just what you need.

I wore a properly fitted under wire bra yesterday, I couldn’t wait to take it off, I can’t remember the last time I wore jeans, I mostly wear non iron, one size clothing and shorts at this time of year. xx
Ouch!! I still have a drawer filled with my “proper” bras and think maybe it is time to get rid of them. I cannot imagine wearing one again.
Hi Cynthia, you looking great in those Harem Pants 🙂 Hope we can get in touch one day. Wish you all the best.
Thank you. 😊 See my contact page so we can connect.
These are great! I love the camo lounge pants. I was bigger than I currently am years ago when dealing with bowel problems where my stomach would distend massively. I could never do up any trousers and even had the comment about whether I was pregnant once (a stranger, offering to help me because of my ‘condition’!) Even now I need loose clothes for around the house because of pain, the stoma bag getting in the way and fibromyalgia. Comfy clothes are a must so this is very helpful for pointing people in the right direction. Ironically I now struggle to find things in my size after all the hospital visits and weight loss. I want to write to Sainsbury’s because they never do the smaller size PJs in store, ever, around here. It’s ridiculous that ‘plus size’ is hard to get, an smaller sizes are hard to get, when the vast majority of people aren’t even in the ‘normal’ (whatever the heck that’s supposed to mean) range of sizes. Love the post!
Thanks Caz! It’s the same here. Plus and small are the hardest to come by. I’m plus size and my daughter wears extra small and small and we both struggle to find stuff we like.
