Thermal underwear and loungewear is a must if you live in colder parts of the world. The underwear makes a great base layer under your winter attire. It fits snug and keeps you warm by insulating heat. And then when you’re at home, safe from the cold, you throw on thermal loungewear. It’s built to be the only layer you need, and a cozy one at that.
Most thermal underwear covers you from your waist down to your ankles. These long johns typically fit snug like a boxer brief, and are often designed with some sort of pouch. Those designed without a pouch come close to being a lounge pant, depending on the fit.
Icebreaker is one featured brand with a design more on the underwear side. The body-hugging fit makes it suitable as a base layer, and the fly gives it a solid underwear look. The handsome tan color of the underwear is also accented with a black waistband, adding to the underwear aesthetic.
The Hanes long john doesn’t have a waistband. This gives their featured pair a refined look. The all white design adds to the simple clean appeal. The pair is also without a fly or pouch. Instead, a simple front seam provides all the support your package needs.
Thermal loungewear comes in more forms than thermal underwear. It can be as simple as a long-sleeve shirt, or as distinctive as a onezee. Diesel and Mosmann both feature with lounge pant styles. The pants are build less like underwear, and from a thicker material. Adding to the lounge pant look is their patterns. Lounge pants usually have some sort of pattern or print, whether it’s plaid or something more unique like Diesel’s gingerbread skeletons or Mosmann’s birds.
N2N is featured with their Lounge Onezee. It covers everything from your neck down to your knees, and has a sexy button closure design. It fits tight, and leaves little to the imagination down in front. Goes to show thermal underwear can be hot in more ways than one.
