don't want one
thought you were supposed to use them more as you get older
what's that about eh
Why wouldn't you want one?
because I'd never wear it
don't like them. deal with it.
I always get up and immediately shower, then get dressed.
then the shower to sofa, then mooch about with a cup of tea for ages, then get dressed
its the perfect go between
I always get up and immediately shower, then get dressed.
this makes no sense to me
you get out of bed. you go to the bathroom. you disrobe. you get into the shower. you shower. you get out of the shower. you dry yourself with a towel. you go to the bedroom. you put on your clothes.
normally I get up, mooch about, get in the shower, get out of the shower, mooch some more, make tea, sit on the bed, watch telly, do my face, do my hair, iron some clothes, get dressed, faff about.
sounds like one of the 7 circles of hell to me
and toasty cause of the dressing gown
if so why put that on and not just warm proper clothes?
or my wet hair on my clothes.
sometimes i wear it in bed
I'll put my pyjamas on WELL early and then also my dressing gown. Probably do it tonight. I sure know how to party.
Every night when I get home. PJs on. Bra OFF. Gessy gown on. That stays on and then I get in bed with the gown on and sleep all wrapped up. I take it off at some point during the night when I'm sleeping.
COME GET US LADS
Balonz: the picture.
it just hangs on the hook on my bedroom door and I forget it's even there
...usually because they consider them a bit 'old man-ish'. Why deny yourselves comfort people?
Missus got me one, wear it to keep her happy, could probably live without it though
They just tap into that childish desire to wrap yourself in blankets, like how onesies are just an acceptable way of wearing a romper suit as an adult. Any real adult should keep their top shirt button done 'til the exact moment they turn on the shower head/get into bed.
basically my bedroom also hasn't changed since I was 12.
You absolute yolo
i find them annoying and uncomfy, the tie bit gets in the way and there's fabric all over the place, i'd rather just wear a jumper
why would i want to wear a thing that's a bit like a shoe but slightly ill-fitting and flappy when i could just wear a nice snug pair of socks ffs
I think the one I've not worn since I was about 15 is still hanging on the back of my mum's bathroom door.
then i wear my dressing gown to the lounge and then put them on there
but rarely worn it coz I get too warm. I love wearing slippers though
I get up, get showered and get changed into decent clothes. V-neck, shirt or t-shirt, jeans at the bare minimum of sartorial elegance.
No trackies, no hoodies, no gowns.
Also, no pyjamas.
I do own one hoody that I wear in the house if it's especially cold.
had to get one when I went to have an operation, have stuck with them ever since. they're great.
slippers, not for me
What are they for?
when I had my hospital operation last wk.
Used it for all of 5 minutes walking from the ward to theatres.
Will never use it again.
Don't sleep in it and when I wake up I have a shower and then put on decent clothes if leaving the house or a t shirt with shorts/bottoms if staying in. Never use it again
Yeah, I too mostly just get out of bed, get in the shower, and get dressed, but you surely need something to wear for the journey to the bathroom and back? Otherwise your housemates will see your junk.
Might aswell put your gown on and leave the towel there.
i hang my towel in my walk in wardrobe but a mushroom started growing there so don't follow my lead.
think people are taking dressing gowns too literally anyway. you can wear them while clothed too
Means I can put off getting dressed after a shower for as long as possible.
wear that for the rest of the day, play haxball, quake, go to bed
I mean, big fan of comfy houseclothes and all that, but you've got to be prepared for someone unexpectedly knocking on the door. My main problem with them though is that i find it hard enough to get to work in the morning as it is, if i put a big woolen gown on i'll more than likely end up watching telly for ages or falling asleep. Getting out of bed and into the office has to be a stealth operation, momentum is key.
I'm definitely a man of strange bathroom habits, though. A shower's a four towel operation or me - one on the floor, even if there's a bathmatt, one large body towell, a smaller towel for excess hair wet, then an extra one on the bed to sit on for a few minutes whilst i look at the wall whilst exhaling.
To sum up - not a necessary post-shower item, and ultimately less fulfilling as loungewear than prison pants, a big jumper and a beanie hat.
"then an extra one on the bed to sit on for a few minutes whilst i look at the wall whilst exhaling"
Finding this rather poignant.
its easier to grab my dressing gown than it is to find trousers, a t-shirt a bra etc
why, im nude right now except for my socks.
That's right - naked with socks like a chicken man
Not a fan
Gessy Gown just flows.
an actual dressing gown made of cloth makes no sense, I just stick a jumper on if I am half dressed and it is cold. A towelly robe thingy though is great, you come out of the shower, put it on and it basically dries you by itself. A quick rub around the genitals and pits, blast of a hairdryer all over and you are good to go. I don't "mooch" around in it though, I would rather get dressed.
Feel a bit unready for the day otherwise.
After a shower or bath in the evening (say, post-8pm), I'll retire into my dressing gown until bedtime. Pre-8pm I'll usually put some clothes on. Thinking about it now, the 8pm thing might have a bit of float for the summer months. Darkness makes the wearing of the gown seem more acceptable I reckon.
I had one when I was young. Don't have one now.
I've been meaning to buy myself a white towelly one, like the ones you get in fancy hotels & spas, just because I like to have a shower in the morning and then get back into bed for 5 minutes sometimes, because if you can't get back into bed for 5 minutes when you fancy it what the fuck is the point of being alive?!
Always has been called that.
