Robe vs Dressing Gown: It’s a mindset.
However, I believe that embracing simple pleasures in life is the secret to living a happier, and more fulfilled life every day – which is really one of the most important things. The beginning of the day is the perfect time to transform the simple act of getting dressed into a wonderful moment, by enjoying the few minutes you take to choose your outfit.
These moments are usually accompanied by wearing what the Europeans call a dressing gown. While, here at home we are more likely to call it a robe.
However, you might be wondering what the difference between a dressing gown and a robe is…
What’s the difference between a robe and a dressing gown?
While our British counterparts still use the term dressing gown, here in the US the words robe and dressing gown have become synonymous. In fact, it’s very rare to hear the word dressing gown being used anymore – you could say it’s gone out of style.
This is a shame, as I rather like the idea of a dressing gown, it implies a special moment of enjoyment in our day that many of us no longer get to embrace.
So, the truth is, there is very little difference between a robe and a dressing gown, it’s just that one name has become more commonplace. I’d like to encourage people to change their mindset around the purpose of a robe and changing the name to dressing gown might be a good place to start. It’s all in the mindset, and it’s something I’d like to change, so let’s start with the name.
We like to think of them as dressing robes, a hybrid of the two together. Designed like a robe but made to allow you to take that extra minute in the morning to embrace the simple, yet the luxurious act of getting dressed.
What is a dressing robe made of?
For example, our Chinoiserie Collection is inspired by the elegant and luxurious wallpaper that my mother and grandmother decorated their homes with. Those memories, woven with my own inspiration, helped create a timeless design that will transport the women who wear the robes.
I hope that our customers love wearing their robes and integrate them into a precious self-care experience that they partake in every morning.
The benefit of Heidi Carey robes...
In a world that fetishizes busyness, we think taking a moment to be present and mindful is a radical act of self-care and love.
And it’s our pleasure that Heidi Carey robes have become part of this process for many women.
