It’s no secret that Oprah happens to be a fan of Spanx. In fact, she’s included the brand in multiple Favorite Things lists and has described their pieces as being comfortable and ultra-flattering. When Oprah describes something as “wow, wow, wow,” you know it has to be good. That’s exactly what she did with the super cozy Spanx AirEssentials set. In Oprah’s Favorite Things 2023, Winfrey went on to say, “I wore it in a photo shoot for O Quarterly and never looked back.” She also mentioned it having the “most comfortable fabric” and “sophisticated” colors. Just recently, the brand restocked the set in their most waitlisted color: Very Black.

Now, we’ve had our eye on the AirEssentials Half-Zip and matching pants ever since she shouted out the set’s “perfectly loose-and-lightweight fabric” for being “like buttah” in her Oprah’s Favorite Things 2022 list (yes, it made the list twice in a row!). It’s a super popular loungewear set among celebs (Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristen Bell, and Jenna Fischer are just a few other celebs who’ve been spotted wearing the pieces). Spanx fans also seem to love it as it sells out all the time.

Spanx’s AirEssentials line was designed to be “luxurious comfort that goes anywhere.” They’re made of fabric that’s lightweight, soft, and “ultra-drapey.” So, just think of these pieces as the chicest and most comfortable loungewear you will probably ever own. With the incredible deal happening at Spanx right now, you can get the set for the price of one piece!

According to shoppers, this chic half-zip pullover really is as soft as it was intended to be. In fact, one said it was “soft as butter.” As they wrote, “I bought this with the matching pants and wore several times, mostly while flying during the three weeks I spent in Europe. It was very comfortable and very classy looking. When I got hot, I just draped the half zip top around my back and neck for a preppy look.”

Spanx AirEssentials Wide Leg Pant

Spanx’s AirEssentials Wide Leg Pants were made using a “light-as-air” fabric that has just enough stretch for ultimate comfort. As one shopper wrote, “These are so soft and hold shape so beautifully. They never look wrinkled or slouchy, so they’re perfect for lounging at home and then running out to do errands without changing clothes.”

Given how popular Spanx products tend to be, sizes and styles sell out fast. Since the Very Black AirEssentials set did sell out once before, there’s a good chance it’ll sell out once again. So don’t wait to shop!
