Usually when it comes to nightmare I would take a hoody or boyfriends t-shirt and be happy.. However I saw this in the store and thought it was pretty and the pattern i really liked.
It is very comfortable which suprised me, well fitted, I was worried about the length as I'm quite tall and didn't want it to be to revealing! However it fitted well, quite slimming and was just enough, not to covering, not to revealing. Lovely o lounge around in and attractive, a lovely change and I feel very feminine when wearing it! A good price to! It isn't to warm or to cold when I wear it! The perfect night wear !
I love la senza and there out standing prices always persuade me to buy lots! I love there style and would really reccommend this or any of there products really! Go an treat yourself today!
To be honest when it comes to PJ's & nighties Id rather go for comfort over style. No-ones going to see you when your wearing them really so why shouldnt I sleep in an old pair of joggers and my YEARS old Aston Villa shirt? LOL. That is my perfect for night-time - its comfy and I dont mind snuggling up in bed wearing those things, I never really got the point of silky nighties especially since no-one sees me when Im in bed or in the morning until Im dressed. That changed though when I saw this 'La Senza Animal Print Robe & Chemise' in La Senza a few months ago. Anyone that reads my reviews will know that leopard print is a particular addiction of mine so I was drawn to this straight away - in fact I think I saw this when it was just the robe without the matching chemise but I didnt buy it straight away. But when I saw it had returned to the La Senza site a few weeks ago I thought it might be time to update my wardrobe, PJ wise anyway!
Price: £28.00 - For both the robe & chemise - they come as a pair I dont think they are sold seperately any more.
Stockists: La Senza, lasenza.co.uk & Amazon.
Sizes: 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 & 18 - Available on the La Senza website - others may be available in store.
This set is also available in plain Black & Bouquet Frill - which is covered in flowers. I definitely prefer this one out of the whole range though but maybe Im a little biased towards animal print ha.

*As usual I would recommend buying this in your average size. I bought this in a size 10 just to make sure and that fits me perfectly everywhere and on my height so Id say get whatever your average size is.*
Ill split this review into 2 halves - the chemise & the robe as I think that will be easier for everyone to read. I will say though in this first bit that if your buying online - like I did - what you see is what you get so you will not be disappointed.

As I mentioned when I first saw this it was available as just the robe on its own so getting the chemise added to the deal for the same price was a real added bonus for me. The chemise is made from a very soft slky material which clings to your skin in all the right places - its actually a very sexy nightie to be fair. The chemise is covered in small leopard print which means it isnt as tacky as it could be and the straps, around the bottom and around the low-cut chest have a black silky band which acts as a sort of cut off - maybe red would have stood out more but then I dont think Id like this as much so I guess La Senza cant win!
As you would expect the front, chest part is quite low cut and has a v shaped neckline which on me means it sits just on top of my boobs and thankfully doesnt fall down to reveal everything it is very fitted yet you still have a bit of wiggle room. The bottom is also short but still long enough to ensure everything is covered up - it has a slit up the back which has a small black bow at the top which I think adds a nice girly touch to the overall design. The straps at the top can be readjusted if they are too long or short - just like you would readjust bra straps - I havent needed to as this fits me reallt well but its nice to have the option.

The part of the outfit I wanted in the first place and I am so glad I own it because I think it is stunning - and very sexy if your wearing it for someone else ;]. The robe is covered in the same print as the chemise and instead of black around the edges this has a thicker chocolate brown edge in a lacy material - which I think I prefer to the black if Im honest. The robe is slightly baggier than the chemise - especially on the arms which again I really like because it balances out the overall look. The robe is made from the same silky material which feels great against my skin and is SUPER soft - the silky material means this is ideal for wearing in summer as it will give you coverage without making you too hot as it has a very lightweight feel.
The robe comes down slightly further than the chemise which means your getting even more coverage on your bum and the top of your legs - this comes down to about half way on my thighs which is the perfect length - but obviously that will depend on your height. This overall outfit [why do I keep calling it an outfit!!] is sexy without being too tarty because you not actually showing off that much flesh - in this case covering up a little bit actually makes the outfit look sexier - in my opinion anyway!

The overall design, quality and feel of these items are amazing in my opinion and even though Ive washed this and worn it LOADS I cant see any signs of wear or bobbling on either one of the items. This is proof that nightwear can be comfy and sexy at the same time - which is something I never thought Id be writing. Its sexy without being to OTT and it can be worn even if your sleeping alone! I would highly recommend this to everyone whether your looking for comfort or design because in this case you get both!
Thanks For Reading.
