What to Wear When You’re Bloated, Tired, and Craving Junk Food

We all experience that dreaded time of the month when you feel like you weigh 3x your actual weight, you’re craving a pretzel but also some fudge, you have a headache, it’s hot, and everyone is breathing loudly. The clothes that fit just a few days ago now fit all weird, and you’re even more sweaty because all of these wardrobe changes feel like a workout. Here are a few comfy yet stylish outfit options to wear during that time of the month!

Maxi or Midi Dress (Better Yet, of the T-Shirt Variety)

Oversized clothing can always be chic. Try wearing a flowing maxi, midi, or T-shirt dress with a pair of slip-on sandals or mules and statement earrings, and you’ll be ready to take on the day in comfort.

Our Pick: Universal Thread Short-Sleeve T-shirt Dress ($25, shop here)


If a maxi or midi dress isn’t your idea of comfort, opt for a baggy (yet stylish) jumpsuit that won’t add extra pressure to your stomach. Wear it with a T-shirt underneath, Birkenstocks, and a vintage bandana around your neck.

Matching Sets

When you’re feeling the ick all over, it’s a great time to bust out a matching set, which can serve major looks when worn with a pair of old-school sneakers and delicate jewelry. This is the perfect, comfy cozy ’fit if you have to leave the house — when you would much rather plant yourself on your couch with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s!

Our Pick: Madewell Birchmoor Sweater Pants ($98, shop here) with Birchmoor Cardigan Sweater ($98, shop here)


You had to know leggings were on our list: They’re stretchy and hold in our guts. We like to wear ours with an oversized tee, a pair of white Vans, and an oversized denim jacket for the ultimate cozy ensemble to wear to class, brunch, or the local drugstore to grab some ibuprofen, chips, and cookies.

Our Pick: Lululemon Align High-Rise Pant ($98-$118, shop here)
