Please recommend a dressing gown/bath robe that a) isn't white b) isn't indecently short c) isn't made from a staticky material d) isn't going to fall apart after three washes.
I'm a tall lady (5ft 10) and I'm busty too, so I find a lot of dressing gowns can be too short for me. I want something I can wear after the shower, or put on to go downstairs and make some toast, rather than something that isn't designed to stop you accidentally displaying your ladygarden to the postman. (I live in a shared house otherwise I would obviously walk around completely naked whilst wearing a pink hat.)
Most dressing gowns in women's stores in the UK are like this
- a sort of fleece material. I find these don't seem to wash very well, and I'm not a big fan of artificial fibres. Also, I dye my hair so white tends to get grubby easily if I pop it on after a shower with wet hair. I also don't like the fact that they seemt o get tatty really quickly, and I'm trying to move away from buying 'disposable' items and spend my money on things that do the job.
I have looked at men's dressing gowns, but many of them are made of similar fabric and/or very 'manly' looking - I do not wish to look like a car seat, even if nobody else will see it. And when I looked at Marks and Spencers - remembering the robe my mum had that has lasted ten years and is really nice and soft - they only had satin or cashmere dressing gowns, which are not good for out of the shower or, in the case of cashmere, eating anything in. And part of the function of a dressing gown is to be able to wear while eating toast.
I did have a look at this
but is it worth £59? What is Land's End quality like, and will it be huge on me? (They don't do women's gowns.)
