Carrie Bickmore has revealed to The Project viewers on Tuesday night that while she might look very professional up top, she chooses comfort where she can - and if the viewers can't see her legs, she's probably going to wear comfy leggings.

While chatting about 'sweatpant suits', which are apparently rising in popularity as more people work from home and opt for a "professional loungewear look", Carrie made a revelation on the show.

"Having spent lockdown in our activewear, it seems plenty of us are fine with the idea of a comfy work outfit with an elasticated waist," Carrie said of the new trend.


Pete asked if Kate Langbroek liked the idea, with the presenter responding: "I'm only pretending that I've only taken up elasticised waist since lockdown, but to be honest, I took them up since about 2001 and I heartily advocate for them!"

Carrie agreed, adding: "I'm wearing my activewear underneath now! Keep it going you know, wear it to anything really."

She then lifted her leg above the desk so viewers could see she was wearing a pair of pink leggings.

Waleed Aly then joked that Carrie has been doing this for years and it's not a recent thing.

"To be fair, I'm like Kate," Carrie agreed.

"The time you wore slippers under the desk was probably my favourite," he said.

"Yep, that was a low point," she joked.
