A nice hoody?!

(23 Posts)

I'm looking for a hoody for sticking on in the house when I'm cold, or over PJs, for comfy travelling or for over fitness stuff. Preferably a zip one. I have an old one, that I think looks ok, my husband says is horrible and to be fair I probably bought it on sale for £3 or something but it's just plain blue and not that offensive, I thought! I don't have brilliant taste though, hence asking here.

Anyway, I just wondered if there's a consensus on "nice" ones, both in terms of comfort and not looking too horrific. I don't want black, or slogans. Best place to look for one?

Primark have some plain zip up hoodies in a few different colours, they're ok for just wearing around the house.

Animal have some nice ones in different colours, not all are emblazoned with logos.

Fat face have some nice ones in the sale at the moment. I bought one to wear on a long haul flight I'm going on soon.

Uniqlo have some nice plain ones -

Ooh I'm interested in this too except I'm after a pull over head one (what are they called!!) and after a thinning lightweight one. Saw a nice one in jack wills but it was cropped so probably not very flattering on my (fat) mum tum.

Thinnish not thinning

£7 in Primark. Cosy. Nice colours. I know, I know, they're probably made by tiny mites in foreign sweatshops.

Boden hoodies and sweaters are lovely quality (I only ever get them in the sale)

Patagonia are gorgeous too - spendy but again, look around for sale bargains

Finisterre are fab - again, £££ but great quality and I've got mine from the sale...I've got a simple navy merino one which I've had for 5 years and used loads and it looks like new.

Thanks all - will have a look

Saltrock have some lovely hoodies, and up to 75% off in the sale just now.

^^ saltrock ones are lovely and some are very soft & furry inside grin

Hollister ones look lovely and plush. Depends on your budget?

I second Uniqlo! Perfect, plain hoodies. Nice material. Just treated myself to a bunch of their stuff.

BarbaraofSevillle Sun 20-Aug-17 20:58:47

I got a nice small, slim, lightweight one from Matalan and also have a lovely big cosy one from Weird Fish at the outlet place. I live in mine with yoga pants in the house.

How do the uniqlo hoodies wash please?

I am the owner - and past owner - of several primark hoodies- yes they are very cheap but they shrink and bobble badly.

I've decided this year to spend a little bit more and hopefully get something a little longer lasting.

I do have a light grey one I bought from Next last year which hasn't bobbled but I think it has shrunk a bit as although it's a nice fit now if was too big when I bought it - so shrinkage even though in this case this was helpful.

Hush are doing a nice one but they call it a tunic - £55

leccybill Sun 20-Aug-17 22:54:14,default,pd.html

I like this one from Asda for a bargainous £14.

Hollister has loads and are very soft and padded inside. Some designs are slogan free

elephantconga Mon 21-Aug-17 07:26:33

Thanks. Have picked out a couple so far then they haven't been in stock in my size. hmm Will try to get to some of these shops in person.

I haven't washed my Uniqlo one yet. It's too new. Their other clothes wash nicely.
