Happy Thursday, everyone. Today, I taking you back to my comfort wear search to introduce you to Spanx AirEssentials for needed optimal comfort.
Karen is a long time reader of this blog and I trust her like a friend…she was the first one to mention Spanx AirEssentials to me.
And Karen? YOU were right…this is optimal comfort.
The minute I put it on, I did not want to take it off…amazing feeling for relaxed comfort.
So, please join me as I show you what I am now wearing from Spanx AirEssentials.
SPANX AIRESSENTIALS FOR NEEDED OPTIMAL COMFORT
This was the second brand I selected for my recovery time from foot surgery.
I knew that I needed clothing for optimal comfort and recovery and that is what I was shopping for.
Spanx AirEssentials are described this way: “The AirEssentials collection is made with spacer fabric that’s lightweight, luxuriously soft and ultra drapey. Designed with refined comfort to feel silky against your skin, these ultimate throw-on-and-go styles will take you anywhere and everywhere.”
This is super soft comfort…
I hope someday to purchase a slimmer leg pant, but for now I believed the wide leg would serve me best.
I am wearing the SPANX AIRESSENTIALS WIDE LEG PANT in the dark palm color.
They are available in petite and tall sizes, but I do believe these pieces size small and that for optimal comfort you may want to seize up.
I also purchased a pair of the wide leg pants in the classic navy.
I had a need for a long top over a shorter one…but one day would like to own a shorter one or two in Spanx AirEssentials…I will be watching for sales.
This is the SPANX AIRESSENTIALS ‘Got-Ya-Covered’ PULLOVER in the light cloudy grey color…which is more of an off white to me.
I believe this high quality of optimal comfort wear will help me relax as I recover…the clothes are like a warm hug.
SPANX AIRESSENTIALS FOR NEEDED OPTIMAL COMFORT: ABOUT THE RECOVERY
Another regular reader, Lorri from Ft. Worth, has had this surgery and she wrote:
“I had planned to wear wide-legged pants and longer dresses after my late October foot surgeries in 2020, so that’s what I stocked up on, mainly through eBay since I thought it would be a short-term need. What I didn’t account for was the velcro closures on the orthopedic boot, which wreaked havoc on any longer pieces I tried to wear. If you can find shorter culotte-type pieces you may find they work better, at least as long as we get typical mild Texas weather, or choose wide-legged pants in fabrics that won’t snag. I whacked off an old pair of my daughter’s high school sweatpants that became my “go-to” look around the house, but I live alone so I could get away with that. When I was released to begin wearing shoes around two months post-op, running shoes were the only thing I could tolerate on that foot for months. After that I started wearing my roomiest cowboy boots to protect the foot from being stepped on, which was an issue during outdoor holiday events and shopping. Find some really stretchy tall knee socks (I used some of my daughter’s old stretched out soccer socks) that will fit over your post-op foot and come up as high as the boot to protect your leg and also keep your foot warm once we finally get some cooler weather. ”
Because of Lorri, I went back to the website and ordered the SPANX AIRESSENTIALS CROPPED WIDE LEG PANTS in navy.
I wore a similar cropped pant on the day of the surgery, but it was another brand I have owned for a long time.
Thanks to everyone who has sent your suggestions. I can see me wearing both lengths…and hope I do not chop anything off, but time will tell.
Here are a few more pieces for the Spanx AirEssentials collection that are on my radar:
Spanx AirEssentials are one of those collections that once you put it on, you understand the price. For optimal comfort, this is a top line.
Maybe Karen will share what her favorites are to wear!
Thanks for joining me today…hope everyone is cozy and comfy where you are….and always….
