Next Snuggle Top
Advantages: Warm, feels amazing
Disadvantages: Some stitch work is looking a little poor
Central heating is like a faint memory to me... I remember it fondly, but have scarcely been acquainted with it since being back at university. As such, I generally find my house, especially of an evening time, to be pretty chilly. And I am not someone who deals well with the cold. Thus, when I saw this 'Snuggle Top' in Next, it was love at first sight...
The Snuggle Top is essentially an over-the-head jumper made purely from soft, almost fleecy material. The label claims it's 100% polyester, but think teddy bear material. It even has a front pocket to slide your hands into and keep them nice and toasty. To put it simply, this jumper feels amazing. Ridiculously soft and cosy, the first time I put it on, I never wanted to take it off. I was hugging myself in it, and rubbing my cheek onto the super soft collar. It is definitely the comfiest, warmest, loveliest thing I have ever worn.
The Snuggle Top comes in four sizes: S, M, L and XL. I am a size 14, and opted for the L size, just because I like hoodies/jumpers to be quite big and slouchy on me. I think I could have definitely opted for the M if I'd wanted to, but I like the slouchiness of the jumper I get in the size I chose. This particular design of Snuggle Top comes in two colours: Mink (pictured) and Cream. I opted for the Mink version, just because I have a bit of an aversion to whiter clothes, as I have a fear I am more likely to drop stuff down them (irrational maybe).
My biggest fear with this top was how it was going to fare in the washing machine, as I have had fleeces in the past that have gone from being a super soft to unpleasant material. Having washed this a few times at the recommended temperature of 40, and using a fair bit of fabric conditioner, I haven't noticed that much of a deterioration in the quality. I would maybe say that it's not quite as soft as when I first bought it, but I am happy that it is still lovely and soft and cuddly. Also, I don't have a tumble drier, and so I don't know if this would fare better if it was tumble dried rather than line dried... it would certainly be extra warm and cosy, that's for sure!
The Snuggle Top costs £20 from Next, which initially I had no problem paying, but have begun to notice that the stitching on the front pocket is looking a little poor, as there are a few long strands of thread poking out at various places. I don't find this overly irritating, but for £20, I would like to think that I have bought a well-made, quality item, and am a little disappointed that this has happened.
Despite this, I am still as in love with my Snuggle Top as I was on the day I first bought it. I wear it practically every day around the house, during the daytime and the night, despite it being classed as a 'Nightwear' item. Although I don't think it looks particularly flattering when it's on, it's so comfortable, I really don't care! It keeps me really warm and feels lush. I highly recommend it to ladies of all ages - you won't regret it!
Summary: One of the best buys I've made for this winter!
