I NEED a comfy, slouchy hoody. Any tips?

This is not a hoody I intend looking good in. This is a wear-on-the-first-day-of-my-period or in the morning while camping kind of hoody. Not fitted. And preferably not logo'd. I don't even know what sort of shop to look in.
At the moment I steal my husband's old uni hoody but unreasonably he wants to wear it also (--although not for the same events as me--)

I steal my DP's hoody from Burton, no logos, nice navy colour, very comfy.

I like the Gap Body logos, nice colours (they change each season)...get a size larger than your normal one and they are a comfy slouchy fit without looking like you are wearing your DH's too baggy.

Or - if you really want that snuggly feeling and want to invest, maybe a cashmere one hmm? Perhaps not so practical for full on camping, as opposed to glamping though grin

Sound like winners! Thank you, I will investigate further

Joules and Seasalt do some nice hoodies without being plastered in logos and brand names.

noted, and noted. thank you!

Should I just be looking a too large sizes, or are there any out there designed to be slouchy and big? If that distinction makes any sense at all

I spotted this one recently which I've added to my list of things to buy:

Hi Bella, that is nice but the ones I have are more like this one, but soft cotton, not weatherproof, there don't seem to be any the same on the website.

the one that doesn't have a hood looks lovely - but I need a hood! For hiding in!

H&M men's hoodies. I have about 4 of their zip ones in various different colours. Wear them post run, snuggled up on the sofa, under denim jacket for supermarket shop etc. I even keep one at work for those freezing days when the menopausal ladies in the office insist on opening the windows.

Wash easisy and Only £14.99 too so you can't go wrong!

good call, easy to get to an H&M here, thanks

H&M ones are good and I used to have a topshop one that was supersoft

I'm currently modelling a lovely comfy slouchy hoodie from Primark. It's a men's one, really soft and warm and I think was a bargainous £8...
