Ah, jeans and slacks. They’ve served you well all these years. But times have changed, and so have your wardrobe habits. Staying (and working from) home for awhile has introduced you to a whole new world. A world in which you can wear cozy, comfy pants all day, every day. Face it: there’s no turning back.

Amazon shoppers have sure gotten the memo. They’ve made the iChunhua Drawstring Lounge Pants one of Amazon’s best-selling pieces of clothing basically overnight, with thousands of reviewers vowing “I want to live in these.” It’s easy to understand why: they’re stylish and cozy, come in tons of patterns, and they’re just $16!

These aren’t your garden variety lounge pants, though. These have the relaxed fit and the smooth fabric of your favorite pajamas, but the wide leg and patterned flair of your favorite pair of palazzo pants. Don’t have a favorite pair of palazzo pants? These iChunhua bottoms are about to change that.

They come in dozens of floral designs and colors—some sensational, others a bit more muted. They even come in pale tie-dye patterns, animal prints, and cool camouflage, stripe, and polka dot designs—plus some holiday patterns. Yes, you can wear these to your friend’s get-together or out to brunch. And of course you can wear them for Zoom calls and Netflix binges. They’re versatile like that.

But let’s talk about the real draw here. Well, first there’s the drawstring—the crucial element that keeps these roomy pants from slipping. But there’s also the “buttery soft” material that is “so incredibly comfortable,” as one reviewer put it. “I love them so much that [I] bought them for all of my Aunts and everyone at my daughter's school!”

Another five-star reviewer wrote, “I am a lounge pants connoisseur so when I say these are the best...I have ever owned, that is a high compliment. They are so soft, so comfy, and are stretchy in all the right places.”

Some customers bought iChunhua Drawstring Lounge Pants for medical reasons—postpartum, back issues, convalescence from surgery—and ended up making these their go-to pants even after recovery.

“I wound up in the hospital from pneumonia and woke up...unable to move,” wrote one customer. “When I saw these and how lovely the prints were...I ordered them. They...fit beautifully, and they gave me the boost I needed to get moving again. And oh, I got SO many compliments. Literally my new favorite pairs ever, glad I bought more than one pair.”

“I originally bought these to wear in the hospital after having a Cesarean,” wrote another. “As I was walking out of the NICU, one of the nurses said she has a pair of these and we both said ‘favorite pants ever’ at the same time.”

Oh, and one more selling point for these $16 wonder pants? They make your butt look great. “Hubby even said he loves watching me walk away in them, so that's a bonus,” one shopper wrote. “The cling to the rear end has my husband very pleased with this impulse buy as well,” reported another.

Ahem...we think you get the picture.

For $16, the iChunhua Floral Print Drawstring Lounge Pants are indeed the smartest impulse buy you’ll make in a while. Good luck ever going back to jeans.
