  • Pants??

    Have you found any pants that are comfortable and don't aggravate your IC? I would love to hear about specific stores/brands.

    I wear skirts whenever possible but they're very inconvenient at my job, where I have to lift boxes, climb ladders, restock shelves, and take out the trash. I am allowed to wear any kind of pants except jeans or cargos.

    I wish I could wear my pajama pants to work!

        Macy's carry the Karen Scott brand and I love them. They are jersey knit and so comfy. I absolutely cannot stand pressure from slacks on my bladder and these jersey knits are great. I think they are around $18.00. The slacks for fall and winter are already in the store. I know, I've stocked up.

        In the summer, they are available in capri's.

          I wear a lot of dresses these days am a making my collection larger and larger. Summer is great because of sundresses. However winter is hear now and it time for pants, cords, sweaters, etc. I miss attractive jeans and can only wear them on a real good bladder day. I like stretch pants with long sweaters. They have skinny pants that are not jean material. Oh...leggings I mean. Some are pretty with lace on the bottom. I also like long skirts and hope to splurge on one with some nice tall boots. But like you, I desperately need to get more pants.

          I go to Old Navy and get their sweats or capri sweats. Those are comfy at home on bad IC days. Perhaps some pants might be ok for your job. They are very reasonable.

          Or to spend more, try maybe Gap exercise. They look similar to yoga pants. Leggings and a long sweatshirt might work for you. I like Macy's leggings. But then again, I've gone to Target. LL Bean makes good products and have a lifetime guarantee. They are pricey but worth it and you can find comfortable pants (pull ons) in a variety of styles and sizes. Also, Land's End has comfortable pants that pull on.

          I love pajama pants too. The minute I come home I put them on. I hate confining clothes! I especially love warn-in flannels.

          Diagnosed: 2011 - have had symptoms for over 20 years. Diagnoses so far: Overactive Bladder, then IC, and now Myofacial Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

          Medicines: For IC am doing PT, and will be taking Gabapentin, Ativan, Tramadol and Ambien. Ice packs and drinking vanilla shakes help. Foods that cause a flare, tomatoes, yogurt, coffee, soda, all sports drinks, and most teas. Take Verapamil, Naproxen (as needed), Omeprazole, Frova (as needed) and receive Botox shots(every three months) for migraines. For allergies I use Claritin and Flonase. (Feel free to ask me any questions about meds.)

          Other conditions: Migraines, allergies, mild IBS.

            Erika manufactures very comfortable pants with elastic waists. I like to wear them for casual wear. I also like any kind of stretch pants.

              I found not wearing underwear helpped me a lot.

              I try to buy all cotton, other materials bother mt VV.

              At home I wear mens boxers, or pj bottoms.

              A brand I have found that sells a very comfortable pant is Lole. I bought at big Bass Pro Shop, but I am sure they are sold else where too.

                Pajama Jeans

                Hello Ladies,
                As an impulse buy, because I was feeling miserable, I bought those pajama jeans you see in that infomercial. And I kid you not, they look like real jeans, pockets & all...and I had to get a large which is size 14-16 and I'm 5'5 in height, and it fit amazingly well. It wasn't tight at all, I honestly felt like I could sleep in them. I never felt so comfortable & relaxed in my life!!! The one negative thing I could say is its kind of pricey, $39.95 at a well known drug store. I only wore my new pair once and I've already started to consider getting another pair.
                They really need to manufacture more styles, like cords or khaki looking ones, black or gray for "work" pants...because I would sweep them up in a heartbeat. Maybe I'll write the inventor a letter...hmmmm

                  Astone0611... That's great you found something comfy. I hate dressing for work and the minute I come home I throw on something loose and comfortable. I love PJ's and could live in them, especially flannel pants. The pants you bought sound nice, but I agree they are pricey! But for comfort sometimes we have to spend right?

                    Thank you about your experience concerning pajama Jeans. I have been wondering about them. A bit pricey but we are worth it if they work. For dress up I wear JCP maternity pants with a tunic. They carry gray, browns and black on their web site. Hug, Ziggy
