America’s giant sweats that hold us in a stranglehold

At The Everygirl, we’re not too often surprised. We’ve tried it all: new beauty launches, Kate Hudson’s morning routine, weighted hula hoops, our mom’s skincare routines, lymphatic drainage massages, and every block of Trader Joe’s cheese aisle. So when a member of our team tries on a surprisingly comfortable pair of Ponte pants from American Giant and has what we’ll call a explosive Reacting to them (as evidenced by the soft kicks on our very public Instagram Story), we nod, raise our eyebrows, and say, “tell me more.”

And so began our whirlwind romance with American Giant. A glimpse of their high bases made us slide right. Their high quality construction, flattering fit and undeniable comfort have secured them a second date. And the fact that they manufacture all of their items locally to support local communities and have transparent sourcing made us ask, “Will you marry us?” So when we got wind we could save 25% on their Everyday collection full of sweaters, joggers, half-zip hoodies and sweatpants with code EVERYDAY25 from now until May 15we knew which parts we had to try next.

In a frantic race to enter, three of our editors tried out sets from American Giant’s Everyday Collection. From hoodies to joggers to wide leg sweatshirts and more, these sets have earned our stamp of approval. The only difference with our first experience? This time we are not surprised.

Initial Thoughts:

I’ve been looking for a good matching set for what seems like an eternity, and during my trip I had three strict requirements in mind: 1) This set would be versatile: undeniably comfortable but always trendy and pretty enough that I could be mistaken for someone trying hard. 2) The set would be high quality because I’ve gone the cheap loungewear route before and got badly burned. And 3) The set in question would make my butt look prettier. Listen, I’m not asking for much. When I picked up my American Giant delivery and tried this set, I did a quick 360 and knew I had found the answer to my prayers in this set.

I put it on and immediately felt 10 times cooler. With this ensemble, I could just as easily be curled up and comfy in the fetal position as I could pair it with gold jewelry and AF1s for a chic Chicago lakeside stroll. The fit of the pants is on-trend, and by the grace of the sweatpant gods, there was no diaper butt in sight – a feat I’ve yet to achieve with any other tracksuit set from my collection.

Fit and Size:

I generally run a size small in both tops and bottoms and would say this set, overall, is true to size. I went up in size in the (medium) top because I was worried my lanky arms could use the extra length, but honestly, I’m not sure that’s completely necessary. If you prefer a looser fit, take one size up, but if you prefer a slightly more fitted fit, take your usual size.

For the pants, I took my usual size small and it fits like a dream. I’m 5’4” and have quite long legs and with tennis shoes they hit my heels perfectly without touching the ground. The waistband hugs me but isn’t restrictive at all, which is always my concern with wearing something high waisted.

The verdict:

This set has completely transformed the way I view loungewear and has been my go-to for running errands, having a girls’ night out, and napping. When I put on this tracksuit set, I imagine passers-by assume I’m a classy girl who has an immaculate sense of fashion and has her life together (note: I don’t have an immaculate sense of fashion and I don’t have my life together). If you’re looking for a high quality set that’s as fashionable as it is comfortable, look no further. American Giant has your back.

Initial Thoughts

From the moment I put them on, I decided that what I like the most about this tracksuit set is the silhouette of the pants. They have a straight, almost baggy fit unlike any other options I own. I need my sweatshirts to be versatile – suitable for everything from working from home to watching movies on the couch all day to running errands (and looking chic while doing it) – and these fit the bill perfectly.

I also love the neutral oatmeal color and lightweight material, as it makes them perfect for year-round wear compared to some of my heavier sweatshirts that get pushed to the back of my closet during the months. of summer. I hate when any kind of sweat feels too hot or uncomfortable in any way, and I can confidently say it’s not. I have worn them for entire days working from home (literally wore this set for two days in a row when I first received them) and have been impressed with the all day comfort . Plus, I appreciate that they don’t require any adjustment because nothing annoys me more than having to keep lowering my jogging at the ankles.

As for the sweatshirt, I love that it’s a classic silhouette that can be dressed up or down. It’s nice enough for me to pair with jeans and trainers for a day at the office but also comfy enough to wear with the matching pants for a more casual look.

Fit and size:

I like a loose fit when it comes to my comfy clothes, so I took a size XL in the sweatshirt. Not only is it super comfy this way, but it’s also great if I want to pair it with leggings or biker shorts instead of the matching pants. I stuck with my usual size L in the pants, and they are definitely true to size (a perfect fit!). I’m 5’3″ and the pants aren’t excessively long on me, which I really appreciate, but there’s definitely still room if you’re taller.

The final verdict:

Overall I give this tracksuit set a 10 out of 10. I don’t often invest in nicer loungewear so it’s great to have a high quality, locally made set that will last me a long time. I think it’s flattering and stylish yet still comfortable, and I can definitely see myself wearing it in lots of different situations. I’m so happy to pair it with fun sneakers, chunky gold hoops, a belt bag and my favorite sunglasses for days out.

Initial Thoughts:

Loungewear can obviously have a million different textures and feels, and when I took it out of the box, I was super excited about how it felt. Rather than being super plush or cotton, it’s a thinner, more packable material that I think is ideal for year-round wear.

Fit and Size:

I prefer my loungewear to be a bit oversized, so I ran size medium (rather than my usual size small) in the sweatshirt, but ran size small in the sweatpants, and the two fit me exactly as I wanted. If you want a larger fit, I advise you to take a size above.

The verdict:

As “in” as matching tracksuit sets are, it’s not easy to find a good one. I want a set that I feel like I can throw on a jacket and sneakers and make it look like streetwear, not like I just left the house in my pajamas – and this set is everything. The colour? Die for. The adjustment? Flawless. I will be wearing them separately and together for the entirety of the near future.
