  • Our size 2X-4X Dressy Sweatpant is a redesigned fit, proportioned for a curvier figure.

Versatile Style

I’m in my 60’s, 5’3” approx 125 lbs. I love wearing and styling my outfits with black pants but have larger thighs and most stretchy yet stylish pants are too tight in thigh or gape at waist. These pants would look good on any age group and every body type/proportion. I can’t wait to dress em up, travel with them or nap in them ❤️

Worth the money

These are not cheap, but my god they are worth it. I could do yoga and then sleep in them. My physio asked if I needed to change just based on looking at them, and I did a high kick in response. I got them for work and my upcoming trip to Scotland, but often wear them around the house. Have washed several times but they still look great. They can crease easily, but once you wear them for a bit it all smooths out.

They do show dirt/cat hair the same as any other legging or sweatpant. They are so light and comfortable it's insane, but I do need to throw on an extra pair of pants overtop for the extra cold Canadian winter days as they aren't super warm. Definitely going to buy another colour at some point. I also love that they come in Long, as I'm 5'10 and they just hit my ankle bone. True to size, and I'm also well-endowed in the booty and hip department and they fit my curves perfectly without being too tight.

Comfy and stylish!

I purchased the Dressy Sweatpant in black several months ago. It has quickly become a favourite piece in my wardrobe as it provides comfort, style and flexibility. I love it so much that I recently purchased a second in green to go with the many black tops I seem to own. Sizing details: I am 5'5" tall, weigh 147 Lbs, wearing size medium pants and small tops. Cheers!

Literally the world's best pants

I can't recommend these pants enough. I have six pairs and where them every day. They are worth every penny. I have a pair from three years ago that haven't changed at all. They don't pill they don't fade they don't stretch out. They really really last.


Just love these pants. I have them in 4 different colors. So comfy and look great.











I consistently rave about the fabric that Encircled uses for its products, and The Dressy Sweats are no exception. Honestly…I could LIVE in these pants...

Jessica /

The fabric is so soft. I’m not exaggerating when I say that these are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn.

Nicole /

These really are the perfect go-to pants to dress up or down.

Dressy Sweatpant FAQs

What size should I choose?

We recommend sticking with your typical pant size, and if in doubt, check out size chart. If you're in between sizes, size up!

What's the difference between the Bamboo and MicroModal fabric?

The MicroModal fabric is knit and dyed locally in Toronto. It's super-soft, and has a slight sheen to it. It's a mid-weight, smooth fabric.

The Bamboo fabric is also soft, but has a ribbed texture to it and more sheen. It's also a mid-weight fabric. Both are certified to free of harmful chemicals and are fade-resistant and sustainably-sourced.

Why are the Dressy Sweatpants so expensive?

At Encircled, we believe in investing in quality over quantity in your wardrobe. The Dressy Sweatpants are just that. The fabric is sustainably-sourced, and locally knit and dyed. This is a super premium fabric - not your average 'sweatpant' fabric. The pants are also incredibly well-made by fairly paid sewing teams who are local to Encircled. We're proudly 100% made in Toronto, Canada. Lastly, the Dressy Sweatpants are timeless so they'll last for years to come in your capsule wardrobe. If you think of your average cost per wear, the Dressy Sweatpants will seem like a steal.

I can't wear pleats! Help!

Pleats can be scary or they can be flattering. On our Dressy Sweatpants they're actually the latter. They're part of the design that makes them look less like sweatpants, and they drape loosely so they don't add bulk. Trust us on this one, you can wear pleats. Anyone can.

How long are these pants?

The regular inseam is 28.5”. Petite inseam is 26". We're launching a Tall version in Fall 2022. Sign up to emails to be notified when its live.

How do I care for my Dressy Sweatpants?

We recommend gentle wash, cold water with an eco-friendly, mild and fragrance-free detergent. Hang to dry. If they wrinkle, we recommend using a steamer, or an iron between a towel.

Do you offer returns?

Yes, we have 30-day returns on non-final sale merchandise. Details here.
