We all take the time to look good before we leave the house, but for some reason still choose our oldest T-shirt, stretched out sweats or tatty robe to throw on at home. 

Cindy Johnson, national lingerie expert and owner of SOL store of lingerie, shows how great fabrics and flattering fits make it easy it is for women of all ages to be comfortable AND cute when they are relaxing at home.  

20’sIn our 20’s we move out of a college dorm into our first apartment with a roommate.  As you are getting new clothes for a new job, don’t forget it’s also time to update your sleepwear collection.  Get rid of the old, boxy t-shirt you’ve had since high school.  Instead, choose a nightgown that is more hip and young, but still super soft and comfortable.  And when your roommate has a friend over you can throw on a matching robe and look fabulous, comfortable and appropriate.

30’sOften time new moms find themselves chasing after kids still wearing the same oversized, faded and stretched out pajamas that they wore when they were pregnant.  Sure your body has changed, but a new, flattering set of pj’s will transform you from feeling dowdy to feeling like the cute new mom you are.  Choose something with a little boob support and accentuates your new trimmer waist and the best part it is can still just be thrown in the washer!

40’sThere is always something to celebrate whether it is an anniversary, a job promotion or a special weekend away.  You want to wear something a little more special that makes you look fabulous.  Choose a luxurious fabric like silk in a color that looks great against your skin.  And highlight your best feature!  If you have great legs, a short silk chemise is cut on the bias so it hangs beautifully.  If you love your shoulders, a silk camisole and pant set will look stunning.  And then don’t just save it for special occasions!  Wear it anytime you want to look and feel fabulous!

50’s
College reunions with girlfriends and weekends visiting your kids keep you busy and young.  This is why it is time to get rid of your old, worn out favorite robe.  Loungewear is something you can wear to sleep, or in front of your family or run to the store.  Loungewear is for everywhere.  It is more updated and stylish yet still very flattering and comfortable.
