We used to think that a super-soft, super-indulgent waffle robe was reserved for the wardrobes of luxury hotels, but thanks to high street brands, you can now enjoy your very own uber-luxe experience from home.

If you thought a big robe was only feasible during cold months - think again.

Marks & Spencer’s Cotton Waffle Dressing Gown has been dubbed the ultimate “holiday” robe to keep you cool during the warmer months.

The knee-length robe with waist fastening keeps air circulating and temperatures down while also keeping you feeling relaxed.

In short, it’s a perfect blend of the cushiony softness you’d expect from any waffle gown with the kind of lightweight feel you need during warmer weather.

It’s summer loungewear at its best - it’s only a shame we can’t get away with this when we finally return to our offices.

Why we love it

The textured waffle design gives the robe a pillowy soft feel so that even if you’re sitting in bed reading the papers for hours on end, you never feel uncomfortable.

The short sleeves mean you’re never dragging your robe through your toast as you prep your breakfast, yet it still provides coverage for the arm area and makes sure you are neither too hot or too cold.

The robe comes in four pastel shades so you can buy one for everyone in the household and still feel you can differentiate between whose is whose.

Plus, who doesn’t love a lavender or pastel pink robe in the summer to add a pop of colour to our slouchy wardrobe items.

What we love most is the cotton robe is sustainably sourced.

What the reviews say

134 reviews on the M&S website are testament to the robes widespread appeal. Here’s what shoppers have to say:

  • “Was looking for a lightweight cotton dressing gown. This ticked all the boxes Really pleased with it.”
