Need a new dressing gown for Chrimbo. My current one is nice and cosy for winter - just terry towelling but is starting to look very worn and faded.
I've seen this one in M&S which looks a bit like an over-priced but lovely one in the White Company, but I was wondering how warm velour is? It's basically polyester, innit, so would I get sweaty and disgusting?
Anyway, my question is - is velour as cosy than hotel robe-esqe terry towelling???
At the end of the day [cliche anyone] you wear a dressing gown when you're trudging round the house looking your worst. You are not going to look glamorous. Get something warm and affordable and imo they look best when worn loose with pyjama bottoms. No one looks good in someting shapeless which wraps round the waist like that.
