I just bought dunelms own brand one. I think it's about £16 and super cosy!

I've been on the hunt for that. Please did I buy them online? If so, please can you share the link?

Honestly I've brought cheap and have the real thing. The Oodie wins hands down for warmth and comfort. Yes they are expensive, but definitely worth it.

I’ve just bought a kudd.ly and love it - if anything a little too warm so I’m hoping it’ll come into its own as winter really sets in and will let me work from home without putting the heating on.

I've got a sienna one from Amazon. It has been fab for the year or two I've had it.

Oodies look amazing (I can't afford one), but for £20 the sienna is very good.

I have an amazon one and genuine oodie

I prefer the cheap one. The other is too thick and heavy

I'm waiting for my kuddlys to arrive.

Apparently they have a different fit e.g. are longer and narrower than oodies.

I don't understand how they keep your legs warm though, do you have to use a blanket as well?

Same here, but I don't think it's cold enough to wear it yet.

I also have the Sienna from Amazon and it's great!

The oodie is too warm for 3 out of 4 of us. The rest prefer the primark version.

Primark for me!

DH and I have Kudd.lys. They are very thick, very warm, and a good length. We got ours on offer at 2 for £49.

I have kudd.ly ones too and would definitely recommend. I got mine for £15 from a website that’s a bit of a lucky dip as to what you get. I’m pleased with it but I don’t think I would pay full price.

I got Amazon's Siennas for the whole family and they've been great. Cheap and cheerful and very warm. I think the small one sheds a tiny bit of fluff but it could be because it's being used constantly as DC loves it. I couldn't bring myself to pay for the branded ones. 😅

I have the Dunelm one, kids have Oodies. The Oodies are definitely thicker and warmer, but I find the Dunelm one easier to wear because it isn't as thick and warm. I felt a bit trapped in an Oodie and overheated quickly. The Dunelm is more of just a bit fleecy dressing gown, except in the hoodie style.

The Kudd.ly ones have better reviews than the Oodies, plus they're a bit cheaper.

DH bought a cheap one from Etsy and I prefer it to mine as mine is a 'premium' brand one and it's too bloody hot.

I'd say buy cheap (Primark, Next, Dunelm etc) unless you want real warmth. 10 minutes in mine and I'm a sweaty mess.

@notapizzaeater its called 5poundstuff they are currently sold out though. It was pot luck what you got, I got two kudd.ley ones, my friend got an oodie however I’ve seen on the reviews that some people got primark ones so a real mix.
