5 Stylish Clothing Brands That Focus On Comfort
Whether on the beach, in the city, in the country, or at home, we need clothing that meets the demands of our diverse lifestyles. At the same time, it's important that they be comfortable and communicate a personal aesthetic that extends from who we are as individuals. Here, in no particular order, are some creative labels delivering extraordinary and cozy apparel and accessories.
Starting off the list at #1, TomboyX was founded in 2012 by Fran Dunaway and Naomi Gonzalez with the purpose of designing and producing underwear that fits comfortably, regardless of where the wearer falls on the size or gender spectrum. In addition to breaking stereotypes in body image, the business model places emphasis on other environmental and social causes, as well. TomboyX works with majority women-owned or managed facilities and ensures their factories are clean, well-lit, provide adequate breaks, and pay a living wage.
Today, the TomboyX portfolio includes bras, undergarments, socks, sleepwear, swimwear, t-shirts, and other apparel. The company's offerings include several unique collections to suit individual needs and tastes. The Traveler Collection is constructed with a quick-drying, durable, and lightweight fabric with anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. The First Line Leakproof selection features an absorbent liner and a floating gusset that accommodates a pad with wings.
Next at #2 is The Reset. Claiming to provide "the perfect foundation for building a wardrobe that gets you where you want to go," The Reset offers versatile clothing essentials that are intended to be starting points for the rest of one's ensemble. The company focuses on the fit of every piece, as well as the articles' abilities to coordinate with each other.
Each piece in the collection is a highly-versatile essential that’s meant to be a starting point, handpicked to inspire you and open up a world of possibilities, outfit-wise and beyond. The ultimate goal—a wardrobe that truly works for you.
The Reset provides loungewear, tops, pants, sweaters, coats, and jackets in a variety of styles and sizes. The company also promotes its lines of coordinated outfits, complete with top and bottom pieces. With names like "Nurture," "Enrich," "Embrace," and "Reflect," each line is intended to foster a certain ethos.
In at #3, Anekdot is an upcycle designer and manufacturer of lingerie, loungewear, swimwear, and accessories. The business sources its materials from production leftovers, end of lines, off-cuts, deadstock, and vintage trimmings. The fabrics Anekdot chooses are never previously worn. All material stock derives from factory closures, makers' surplus, production errors, or miscalculations.
Every item in Anekdot's collection is a unique, limited-edition piece that combines style with a comfortable cut. From luxury intimates and robes, to bikinis and one-pieces in an array of deep hues, each design is produced locally by skilled artisans with a zero-waste policy. Even the trimmings are incorporated into the company's range of accessories.
At #4 is Rose Fulbright. London clothier Rose Fulbright-Vickers started the label after studying at the Parsons Paris and the London College of Fashion. Her operation specializes in luxurious loungewear, resort wear, and lifestyle accessories that feature nature-inspired, hand-painted prints.
Tempt your senses with The Eden Collection, bringing sumptuous silk satin in the deepest jewel tones together with Rose's exclusive hand-drawn and painted print of art-nouveau inspired entwined cyclamen flowers.
The business presents a wide variety of curated collections, including The Delphine Collection, Eden, Burj Al Arab, and Morgan Menswear. Each lavish line is tailored to fit a specific aesthetic. The Eden's silk satin arrangements, for example, are inspired by items worn during the Roaring Twenties.
Lastly, at #5, is Girls Will Be. The company designs and produces clothing for young women and females of all ages. The cuts, fabrics, and prints are deliberately chosen to empower girls to be themselves. With graphics highlighting everything from dinosaurs and math to art and soccer, the company's offerings give wearers more options to express their individualities.
Celebrating a wide variety of interests and styles, Girls Will Be provides stereotype-busting clothing in an array of bold colors and high-quality fabrics. The brand's "In-The-Middle" fit allows for an active lifestyle without being boxy or oversized. Finally, each outfit is built with pockets so girls can hold on to everything they need.
