Because I can’t drive, I spend a lot of time at home. My body requires a lot of rest during Hemiplegic Migraine attacks so dressing for those occasions is important. Having comfortable clothes is important but because of the partial paralysis I have during attacks, functionality is just as important.
What Do I Look for When Buying Comfortable Clothes?
For pants, the first thing I look for is an elastic waist. This will make it easier for me to go to the restroom if I only have 1 functional arm. This is also important if I am doing things outside of the home with my husband. I really don’t want to have to worry about being able to use the restroom by myself!
Just because they are pull on doesn’t mean that they can’t look fashionable. Here are a few great selections of pull on pants that will give you a great look and be comfortable and functional.
When looking for shirts, I look for a loose fit that does not need to be tucked in. Fortunately, that is in the fashion right now and it goes well with the pull on pants. Again, functionality is important but it must also be comfortable if I need to rest.
These are some great choices, in fact, I have put some of these on my Christmas wish list!
Lounge Wear/Sleep Wear
Let’s face it, when you have a chronic illness, you are going to have pajama days. Having good clothes to lounge in is essential on those really bad days. Being comfortable doesn’t mean looking bad though!
Here are some looks that I really like and they would work perfectly for me.
Comfortable Clothes for Fall
These are some of my favorite choices for fall and winter. As I said before, some of these have made their way to my Christmas Wish List for Santa!
When you have a chronic illness and your energy is limited, you need your clothes to be effortless, comfortable and functional. It is also important to look good as well and sometimes that doesn’t necessarily go together. With some effort you can achieve both comfort and being fashionable!
