I want to treat myself to a lightweight dressing gown. Does anyone have one of these? Which one? Are they worth the money?

I have one and I bought my mum one for her birthday last year. I have a feeling that mine isn't technically a dressing gown but a kimono although I wear it as a dressing gown. We both really like them (for context, I'm a size 8/10 and she's a size 16 and they fit us both fine).

I wear the short one as a light top in the summer and I love it. It’s surprisingly durable and I hand wash it (rarely). I may get a longer one as a dressing gown come to think of it...

I have a short kimono I wear as a cover up in the sun to stop my shoulders burning - its lovely and light, doesn't make me sweat. I love it

There are some beautiful prints!

I have three (two dressing gowns and a mid thigh kimono).

They are beautiful, soft and comfortable, and well worth the money to me.

I’ve got a cherry blossom print and a strawberry print dressing gown, and my kimono is in the moorish-style print.

They look gorgeous!
20% off and free delivery from Within Reason WR. So £60 instead of £75.
I went for the iris dressing gown in grey. But I love the maps ones too.
Just wasn’t so keen on all the tendrils on the Passion flower print although the colours were lovely.
Fingers crossed.

I just ordered the Chinese lanterns longer kimono and got 10% off from Sue Parkinson and free delivery. Style and beauty is dangerous 🤪

I love mine...I have the Paris map one. I've worn and washed it so much though I think I'm going to have to get another....

Wow you guys are decisive!

I’ve the Paris map too ! So many compliments when I wear it.
I was wondering if anyone has a top by them - it’s like a sewn up kimono ? I’m a bit too heavy so was wondering what the sizing was like (apology for off topic op).

Fallsballs Wed 06-May-20 10:07:59

Top heavy - not too heavy 🙄

peachypetite Wed 06-May-20 10:12:36

Are they very long? I’m 5ft 3

Should this post have #ad on it I wonder....?

peachypetite Wed 06-May-20 10:17:47

Wtf? I’m just a normal poster. It’s style and beauty.

I’m just hanging around the house bored and like them 🙄
You can get kimonos on eBay China/India or go down the road of Toast but these are the middle ground.

@gingersausage 🙄🙄

One Hundred Stars has a lot of satisfied customers for several reasons - they’re lovely quality, fantastic designs that fit a wide range of sizes, and the prints are gorgeous.

I have been looking at these are they meant to be worn around the house as a dressing gown or style with other clothes to wear outside.

Ninkanink Wed 06-May-20 10:29:45

The dressing gowns are to be worn around the house I think. The kimonos can be worn as dressing gowns at home or as clothing.

I have a burgundy paisley type print long dressing gown. Love it. Never thought of the kimono style as beach cover up (if we ever get to go on holiday again)

Sooverthemill Wed 06-May-20 10:53:18

@peachypetite I'm 5'1 and the Paris map one is fine on me, although to go upstairs I have to hoik it up or I trip! No huge inconvenience

peachypetite Wed 06-May-20 10:56:23

Great, I like a nice long gown smile just got to decide which print to buy now.

I have the Paris one as well - I love it, but only tend to wear it for brief periods as it's quite delicate material - I wouldn't lounge around all day in it for example. It's perfect for taking on holiday as it's so light when you want to waft around on your balcony.

Fallsballs Wed 06-May-20 11:00:06

I liked the short kimonos when it was really hot last summer - I wore a silk cami underneath as I don’t like my arms out. I am getting a longer one as I’d like my arse covered as well.

Housewife2010 Wed 06-May-20 12:06:03

I have one. It is very sheer material. I like to potter in my dressing gown after a shower - with not much underneath. In the light it is definitely much more diaphanous than I'd expected.( I've had silk pyjamas before. )I don't wear it much because I feel it would be better with pyjamas or a nightdress underneath which I don't have. These aren't silk but look and feel just like it.
