Why does nowhere sell towelling dressing gowns?

Every shop I have gone in recently has those horrible polyester ones - does anyone know where I can get a boys towelling one?

And why have they all swapped to the fluffy ones?

Nice but a bit pricy

ShirleySharpeyes Wed 19-Oct-11 14:45:12

or here for towelling in a variety of colours....

MrsBradleyCooper Wed 19-Oct-11 14:49:56

Great thank you thank you - will have a look at those smile

I used to be very attached to my old towelling dressing gown but couldn't get a new one anywhere so bought a 'fluffy' one in M+S. It's fab - so cosy and warm. I wouldn't go back now!

IKEA have some lovely thick towling ones - about £19 with FAMILY card

HipHopOpotomus Wed 19-Oct-11 21:30:27

oh I don't know if they do kids sizes though

Dunelm. Went there the other day looking for towels and they have towelling robes in a variety of colours and sizes.

Angel786 Wed 19-Oct-11 21:38:08

White company?

sprinkles77 Wed 19-Oct-11 21:41:31

i have this. It says velours but is really light weight towelling. Is very very nice.

sprinkles77 Wed 19-Oct-11 21:43:03

fuck sorry, just read you want for your DS. I suppose this is similar.

jamaisjedors Wed 19-Oct-11 22:14:22

It's because they dry quicker [now converted for the DSs but NOT for me].

Well I think so anyway, for us, without a tumble dryer it beats 2 days of draping and turning on a radiator and still the armpits are damp.

white company

CarlottaJ Wed 19-Oct-11 22:24:25

had same problem, all fleecy robes everywhere, but then found this company online! Couldn't believe i'd actually found KIDS robes in towelling material!!!
Was bit wary at first about quality but robe was better than expected - result!

My usual answer. Try tk maxx

MadAboutHotChoc Thu 20-Oct-11 14:06:15

Dunelm have some in lots of nice colours

CeliaFate Thu 20-Oct-11 15:00:15

Dunelm Mill had some on sale from £34.99 down to £9.99, but adult sizes I think.

MrsBradleyCooper Thu 20-Oct-11 18:45:13

Thanks all for your great ideassmile

I ended up getting the striped White Company one - it's lovely. It was a bit pricey but I got it in a size bigger so that he can get away with it for a few years!

I'd definitely recommend it as it is lovely quality smile

I've got one. It was from Per Una grin
No mad buttons or waterfall front though. Just thick white towelling with pink bits on.

Christy robes last forever.
I you subscribe to the email and you'll get sale alerts around/just before Xmas time to buy them at a more reasonable price.

Wow, thanks for this old thread! It was the first hit on google - my kids needed these for swimming as it feels like the only thing you can buy is that fleecey stuff that's lovely and light and warm when you're dry already but freezing when you're wet. The Redoute ones looked great but in the end I went for the White Company.
