Sales of this cosy must-have have more than doubled and here's why we all need one

Floral robe

As we all get used to spending more time at home, sales of comfortable loungewear have unsurprisingly increased.

And while we’re loving living in confortable joggers, there’s another cosy item we should all be adding to our new lockdown wardrobe.

Lingerie favourite Boux Avenue have reported that sales of dressing gowns and bathrobes have more than doubled in the past few weeks – an increase of 117% to be precise!

As the name suggests, dressing gowns are traditionally worn after we get out of bed and before we get dressed; or after we get undressed and before we get into bed.

However, now that our routine isn’t quite as defined as it was before and those hours could potentially extend for the whole day, the importance of a dressing gown has never been greater.

From a fluffy number that feels like a hug, to a more sophisticated fashionable kimono, there’s options for all tastes – and a few are even on sale…
