In the mornings after my shower I lotion up and then put a little dress on until the lotion is absorbed. Gotta get some new dresses now that they are in the store again.
What kind of dress? Can you link to a photo - I am very curious. Sounds like something I'd like!

Something like this is what I have:

Clothes for women, men, kids and baby | Free Shipping on $50 | Old Navy

Any cheap little cotton dress would work. It needs to look respectable enough so that I can answer the door or take the dog out for a pee

I use them as a coverup for my swimwear too.

Hmmm, I never thought about using a basic cotton dress as a house dress. Good idea when it's super hot out (I only have air conditioning in my bedroom).

Yup, in the summer I'll just leave it on all day if I'm not going out anywhere. Nice, cool and comfortable.

I have a ton of them, but I have to go through and toss some of the older ones that are looking ratty.

I'd love to have more than one bathrobe. I've taken over my husband's because it is very long (almost to my ankles), but it's also thick and heavy. I'd like some lighter-weight types for the other seasons. My pajamas of choice are undershirts (fitted tank tops or undershirts) and long pajama pants, so I'd like a couple short, jersey wraps.

I have several robes that I wear depending upon the season. All are long (ankle length) except the cotton one I wear during the hottest months of summer. All have shawl collars except for the summer one, which is kimono style. I find them very comfortable! I love slippers too!

You are my bathrobe twin. Slippers too. I thought I wrote this post until I checked the name again.

I too wear my bathrobe when home nearly all day! It is a fleece and I love it! If I start doing too much stuff, like laundry, it gets too hot.
I got dressed today, then I felt cold and put my robe on over my clothes.

The snuggie is NOT cool! I did not waste my money on that junk! I have a blanket if I need to cover my feet, while in my robe!

I even take the kids to school in it. I have a durable pair of skechers slippers that I wear with my robe to walk the doggies or check the mail.

I would love to get another soft, thin robe for summer.

Robes RULE!!! Snuggies are just a mistake from a cheap robe making company.

Never could get into robes. I've had a few, just not that fond of them. I'm more the housedress sort...I tend to wear simple tank-style t-shirt material sundresses for this.
