Rated 4 out of 5 by Poppiest Treat High Priced Items to Better Packaging Please
Saw one of these dressing gowns in a small size in a Marks store (probably a return as you can only buy online) and thought it looked lovely, if expensive. As there was 30% off on gifting weekend and I also had some loyalty vouchers to put towards one, I ordered one. Firstly, I was disappointed in the packaging as it just came in a dusty(!!) bag and was terribly creased as though it had been squashed by heavy parcels. I was expecting it to have come in a box reflecting a high priced quality item. I've received other orders in boxes. Secondly, I was disappointed that on the description it states silk lining, but the lining is just on the back to waistcoat length, not the whole garment. I wouldn't call that lining. I hadn't looked inside the one I saw in store, just the outside.
The fit is fine on me, just the right length and I do like the apricot trim. It looks lovely on the photos online too. Am actually undecided whether I'm keeping it (and ironing it!) or returning it as the bad packaging, bad creases and lack of full lining have taken the shine off a luxury item.
P.s. Bought the last Briggate Mac in my size in Manchester Marks the other week and love it!! Marks has that sooooo right.

I'm very fond of m&s so it pains me to say this, but I thought item looked and felt poor quality- not up to standard- cheap synthetic shiny feel and appearance. Have already returned. Would not have bought if had seen in shop - sorry but quality seems to be going downhill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tattyfriend Outrageous price for normal dressing gown
I bought this expecting a very special replacement for my current £40.00 Autograph velour gown. Expecting significant silk...as per the description.. It is identical to my old one except the trim is beige silk not black. Completely over priced for what it is and promptly returned. M&S seems to be losing the plot a bit lately. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by musiclady27 lovely new dressing gown
ordered this dressing gown in a 14 and 16 to make sure I got one, had a 20% Dis with my sparks card, they arrived today, I am keeping the 14, lovely dressing gown, well worth the money, really good quality fabric, down side a little long in length and I am 5'4' so will have to take off when going up stairs, other wise I am very pleased, and I did save £40, get one before they sell out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ilikeelegance Very expensive dressing gown
I bought this dressing gown last year. It is lovely, but vastly over priced. No way is it worth £200. I would say, about £60-£70. I enjoy wearing it as it looks good, but I really hate the fact that I paid such a lot for it. It does not wash well either.
A big disappointment.
