Wearing beautifully made, luxury dressing gowns is not just about comfort. They’re a whole mood. Picture yourself wearing an deliciously soft silk dressing gown as you sit at your dressing table and start your evening skin care/self care routine. You may even want to light a vanilla-scented evening candle and pour yourself a glass of your favourite red wine. Whatever your self-indulgent night in looks like, a fabulous dressing gown will only serve to elevate your evening, as well as your nightwear!
Unlike bathrobes, which are typically made of heavy, absorbent materials like flannel or terrycloth, dressing gowns are typically lighter and made in a wider variety of materials. The right luxury dressing gown can work wonders for your mood, simultaneously making you feel beautiful, warm and alluring. We feel that slipping one on at the end of a long day strikes the perfect balance between comfort and glamour, which is perhaps why dressing gowns have become sleepwear staples for so many.
