As much as I love lingerie, I also love snuggly cosy too and I had been on the hunt for a new dressing gown since my husband gifted me a somewhat dodgy one for Christmas so I was thrilled to try out the Velvet Robe by Hunkemoller.
Hunkemöller are a new company to me, however they were founded in Amsterdam in 1886 and now have 800 stores across Europe! They offer lingerie in sizes 32A to 44H, along with loungewear, nightwear and swimwear so if, like me, you were in the dark about this brand then definitely give them a look.
The robe is a beautiful deep blush colour and is a super soft brushed velvet fabric. It has pockets (who doesn’t love a pocket?) and a hood to make it extra super cosy. I got an XL/XXL as this was the largest size available and it’s definitely true to size which always makes life easier.
The robe is the perfect style to throw on for a lazy weekend morning (in my pretend life, where I actually have these) it’s not too heavy, I hate really chunky dressing gowns because I feel a bit suffocated so I like the lighter-weight feel to this one but it also feels very luxe because it’s so soft and velvety.
This robe is £32 and the price point is great for the quality of the garment. I’m very pleased Hunkemöller are on my radar, I would like to see an increase size range but this is on a personal level, I fully appreciate that it’s a solid range with a lot of options but a 3XL in this robe would have been absolutely spot on (I am a UK 18/20 and would say this fits as a 16/18)
What do you think? Will you check this brand out now? What is favourite brand for cosy loungewear?
