Do you wear a dressing gown? I feel like people don't anymore. I was thinking about what I wanted for Christmas. I have an old one on the back of my door but it isn't a nice colour or cosy so I don't wear it but would I wear one if I had one?

I wear mine all the time! Literally as soon as I get in from work I put it on and it doesn't come off until I go to bed, I luffs my dressing gown grin

I do. It's very fluffy grey towelling and long, and was my 'comfort blanket' when I lived overseas....my OH calls it my Womble suit!

Wore mine until lunchtime today mainly because I felt terrible and went back to bed wearing it as I was so cold.

I do in the winter

I'm wearing mine right now!!

I think bath robes are good for pottering around after a bath or shower.

However, for just being cosy in the house I'd be more likely to wear a jumper and pyjamas.

Yes
All 4 DC (adult) too but not DH

Loves my dressing gowns!

I have one big fluffy one, one waffle cotton one, and a thin silky one for summer smile

I wear mine every day. I have two on the go at the moment.

I love putting a dressing gown on... I have a summer one, a mid-year one and a floor length thick winter one smile

Yes. Otherwise I get cold eating breakfast shouting at the children just in my pj's.

Are your pj's really warm?

RealHouswifeofBury Wed 23-Nov-16 22:54:57

I wear it all time. I love a soft, fluffy dressing gown

I have a really lovely white waffle dressing gown, and very rarely wear it. I might put it on after a bath while I get ready to go out on an evening, but on weekdays just go straight from bed to shower in the t-shirt I've slept in. My DP sleeps naked and wears his more.

I live in mine smile

DH and all three of our adult sons are currently pottering around the house in theirs.

Two of the boys have asked for new ones for Christmas.

I have a lovely soft fleece primark one, with a hood. Best present ever from my girls!

crunched Wed 23-Nov-16 22:55:50

I do!
Cozy spotty one, velvety black one, summer silky one and sexy, sort of transparent one. HTH halo

I wear mine every day. Out of shower, dry off, dressing gown on while I sort of contact lenses, nag kids etc then go back to bedroom to get dressed. Lovely & cosy.

Also essential for kids night waking hassles (luckily not so many if those any more...)

It's currently -5 degrees here (urban Scotland). The dressing given is a fleecy lidl number :-)

sooperdooper Wed 23-Nov-16 22:56:13

I put mine on every morning after I get out of the shower while I put my makeup on and ting

I'm surprised at the question - surely anyone with small dc that get up at 4/5/6 wears them at least a couple of hours per day. I have 2 as the dc quite often smear breakfast on me or I drip coffee on myself when sleep deprived

1happyhippie Wed 23-Nov-16 22:57:58

Yes. I love mine. It's fluffy and pink and so warm!
My dd have them, but they prefer onesies now.

Ditsy4 Wed 23-Nov-16 22:59:24

I have a red one I have had for years and last year asked DH for a M&S. Purple one then I saw them and just bought it because the year before he left it too late and they had a horrible one left. Even DH thought it wasn't very nice. It is really cosy.Thick and fluffy. I kept old one in case I need to let hens out. Not risking hen poo on my new one.

notagiraffe Wed 23-Nov-16 23:01:17

Every day. I have a fluffy one that needs replacing as it's quite old now, a silk embroidered one, a Japanese kimono and an elegant golden cotton weave one that DH bought me years ago. Also craving the silk giraffe one from River Island but don't need it. Just fancy swanning round in it. I'd live in them if I could.
