As a bra blogger, I spend a lot of my time perusing the world of lingerie. In particular, I have recently developed a huge love for robes – La Lilouche, Claire Pettibone, Gilda & Pearl, Jenny Packham…a girl can dream! Unfortunately most of these items are out of my price range, but that doesn’t stop me from daydreaming of evenings filled with feathers and silk. Recently, I have been looking around for more attainable options, and soon came across Camille Lingerie.
Camille stock a variety of affordable lingerie, including both their own bras (32-42 A-FF) and Royce Lingerie (28-40 D-K), but what I most liked the look of was their range of wraps. Luckily for me, Camille very kindly offered to send me an item of my choice, and I decided to try out their luxury peach satin bathrobe in a size 14/16. I found this size to be a good fit over my bust, though I did find the waist and shoulders were slightly big due to my narrow frame.
I wore the robe here over a set of black lingerie, just to lounge around the house. I found the robe to be a good length on me, and the tie waist is perfect for giving me some definition. The material is very silky and light, which means that this robe has become a staple for me in hot weather – I love being able to cover up, keep cool, and still look fabulous. Obviously it isn’t quite as glamorous or luxurious as the robes I fantasise about, but I dare say it’s an excellent choice for now.
I was worried at first that the embroidery on the shoulder would make the robe look somewhat dated, but upon receiving it, I have found that it sets off the look of the robe quite nicely, giving the robe a more sophisticated, vintage look. Lastly, as a huge fan of all things peach, I think it goes without saying that I love the colour! There is something about this shade that I just adore for lingerie, and robes are no exception.
Is anyone else a robe fan? What’s your dream robe?
