Very far removed from Style and Beauty, but where does one get a nice dressing gown?

I don't want a slinko sex kitten type, not least because at 5'10" they barely cover my arse
but nor do I want to look like Nora Batty - is there a middle ground?
no "fun" prints or towelling

has anyone seen anything?

...listens...I'd like one like Stella in The Fall. Cream silk

House of Fraser do lovely dressing gowns. i bought a plain grey one with a hood, very snuggly and warm, soft material, long, and not towelling or Nora Battysmile

Toast do loveky ones, but hof same and cheaper.

GertrudePerkins Sat 29-Nov-14 15:53:19

I'd love to look like Stella Gibson, she's ace

I know, this weeks episode I really wanted the serial killer to get out the way when he was in her wardrobe and dressing room so I could see her clothes and make up stuff

Zara Home

I like yukatas and nemakis. The latter has a gauzy lining that is the softest thing in the world...

I have a lovely dressing gown from Toast.... rather £££ but worth keeping an eye open for the sale.....

Jocastafantastica Sat 29-Nov-14 16:23:14

I got a lovely blue kimono-style Janet Reger one in TK Maxx the other week for £12.99 bloody bargain it's gorgeous..

The white company. They're pricey. But lovely.

waitingforgodot Sat 29-Nov-14 16:46:58

I second the white company.

AwkwardSquad Sat 29-Nov-14 17:22:36

I second Toast. Much the nicest I've seen and wash very well.

ZaraW Sat 29-Nov-14 17:24:38

Another vote for Toast have a look on E Bay you can get some bargains.

AlmaMartyr Sat 29-Nov-14 20:16:30

I've been looking for something like this as well. Frugal- are the nemakis warm? I've been looking at them and they seem lovely.

TheGonnagle Sat 29-Nov-14 20:23:16

My marvellous dressing gown is this beauty. Washes a dream, feels like a hotel robe, not too warm, not cold either, a proper length.
The best dressing gown I've ever had.

No idea I'm afraid - still haven't found the one I 'm searching for which is the one Helen mirren wore in the calender girls -loose at the back but with the usual ties at the front - think it was quite silky. Anyhow, absolutely no help at all -sorry and happy hunting!!

FrugalFashionista Sat 29-Nov-14 21:37:10

Alma my nemaki is warm enough for a draughty Italian house - no heating after midnight! The gauzy lining traps warm air, in midwinter I wear it over brushed cotton pajamas. It's a curious thing - both light and warm. I've given away my other robes after discovering this.

goodasitgets Sat 29-Nov-14 21:48:33

Long tall sally - I have one and so comfy, plus longer sleeves and length

Waffle type one (I think this is the one I have and it's very, very warm!)

Stripe cotton (comes in other colours)

motleymop Sat 29-Nov-14 22:04:37

Those Cologne & Cotton ones look really nice - might ask for one for Christmas!

GotToBeInItToWinIt Sat 29-Nov-14 22:12:43

I've got a lovely soft white one from figleaves.

SelfLoathing Sat 29-Nov-14 22:13:49

Bonsoir Direct has nice stuff.

TheOnlyOliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 29-Nov-14 22:14:29

Lurkity lurk
I need a dressing gown.

GertrudePerkins Sat 29-Nov-14 22:26:32

wow - thanks for all of the ideas. lots to look at.

am now trying to decide whether to buy myself a cheaper one, or get DH to buy me a fancypants one for Christmas

AlmaMartyr Sat 29-Nov-14 22:57:08

Thanks Frugal, they're very tempting!
