    • It’s Sunday morning and I’m being a baby. It is cold outside once again and I swear my knee and hip joints are “talking” to me and my back is tight as well. I’m not going to church and yet I want to do a workout because that will make my body feel better.

      What I really would like is some information about clothing that will help insulate my body even if all I do is lay around the house. Any answers?

        • Visit LLBean.com . They're located in Maine, so you KNOW they know about cold weather! Just got a Winter Sale catalog in the mail so now's a good time to check them out online, then if you want their catalogs you can request whichever ones you need. They have the best winter (and summer) clothing around. Got a couple of parkas and the best raincoats from them (yes, they're expensive but the stuff lasts). I love their fleece jackets and pullovers as well as their flannel lined jeans which I can get in my size -- 34" inseam, with no problems. They also have great underwear both thin and thick. There's a long underwear site called wintersilks.com, as silk is a great breathable fabric for underwear. Pricey, but they will feel like second skin.

          My second favorite is Land's End  for lightweight outerwear. I have stadium squall coats and jackets so when I combine them with the LL Bean fleece, the snow, rain sleet and wind chill doesn't bother me a bit. heart

        • Well I usually just wear a thermal long sleeve shirt underneath and a t-shirt over It and a hoodie as well, cause I know my house can get really cold and I don’t always like to have the fireplace on. So If you have some thermals, those usually keep me warm. Tops and bottoms, but I love wearning my flannel pj bottoms around the house toestatic

        • I have two hyper dogs who insist on walking every day including in winter. My suggestion is dress in layers, wear a hoodie with a scarf and hat. I love the long underwear cuddleduds also, Good luck.

        • Maybe go to your local sporting goods store and find maybe some type of underarmour that athletes wear to keep your body temperature normal.  Under armour usually keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter...and let’s your skin breathe.
