I'm looking for a cardigown without the 80 quid price tag

I want some kind of cover up for over PJs, but most dressing gowns are massive big bulky fluffy things and annoying when you're pottering around doing morning jobs.

Something like the Hush cardigown would do it, but my eyes are watering at the price tag.

Anyone seen anything similar for a less painful price?

I just pull on a fleece.

But I need bum coverage you see.

uniqlo knitwear is really good value

That's great thanks wurg. Uniqlo looks good (and I've never bought from there before) so I'll give it a go,ta.

If you need merino or angora or cashmere then its not for you, but I have a couple of hush cardigowns and I also have this and it does the same job! And it doesn't shed or pill.

Its a lovely neutral oatmeal colour in real life so goes with pretty much everything too.

Too frumpy for streetwear in my opinion (for me anyway) but perfect for bogging round the house and throwing over PJ's etc, and looks far more "dressed" if the postman calls than if you were wearing a fluffy dressing gowny monstrocity!

Oh man any old sloppy cardi would do. It only looks fab cos it's on the glam skinny model! If I wore that, it would look like any old cardi!

well yes, tracy, I suppose my thread title could have been "Help! I Need To Find Any Old Cardi!!" grin

I thought a cardigown was the short dressing gown. I got a nice one from asda but tis a fluffy soft fleecy thing. Not a woolly cardi type of thing iykwim. I didn't mean to be cheeky though sorry.

M and s seem to have loads of longline cardis in their sale and if you would look good in the hush one I reckon you'd look good in any of theirs. Iykwim?
