  • Bed Jackets Make The Perfect Christmas Gift

    We have seen a steady increase in the popularity of bed jackets over the last two years. If you’re looking for a gift for a loved one this festive period or are attempting to make a hospital stay a slightly more pleasurable experience then a bed jacket could be just the ticket. Slenderella Bed Jacket

    As winter approaches and the nights get colder, a bed jacket can add that extra little bit of comfort and cosiness. They can be described as 'half-dressing gowns' as they only cover the top half of the wearer but it's design offers you a bit more mobility, and more importantly, you can wear one in bed.  They are perfect for wearing around the house or if you have stay in hospital.

    Carr & Westley have been offering bed jackets via mail order and via our website for over two years.  By purchasing via mail order or online you don’t need to brave the high street and can select from a wide range of designs and colours.  We deliver direct to your door and don't even charge for delivery!

    So if you’re looking online for a bed jacket, or other nightwear products, then feel free to browse our nightwear range and come back regularly for special and clearance offers.

  • A Bed Jacket Is For Life..

    Bed Jacket

    Whilst nightgowns and housecoats remain as popular as ever, the humble bed jacket has rather fallen from favour in the past few years. Resigned to hospital stays and gifts, it found itself towards the lower end of Carr and Westley’s selling popularity lists.

    It has, however, made a comeback in recent times mainly thanks to its usefulness and exposure to wider audiences.

    The bed jacket, a woman’s garment, is a waist-length robe, worn to cover the chest, shoulders and arms whilst sitting up in bed. It’s short length and cape-like cut allows it to be put on (or removed) whilst still in bed. Often made of sheer or lacy fabric and displaying very feminine trimmings and details, it was often used more for seduction, rather than warmth or modesty. It was popularized in 1930s Hollywood films featuring glamorous settings and glamorous stars lounging languorously in their silken bedrooms. Ostrich feather tips, swan’s down, pleated tulle and shirred lace were just a few examples of the extravagant materials that could be used in creating these confections.

    These garments are currently very popular with people who have been hospitalized or recommended bed rest. I was recently introduced to the wondrous garments when I gave birth to our son last February (warmth and modesty definitely on my mind more than seduction and Hollywood glamour!). Sitting up whilst feeding him at night, I found a dressing gown cumbersome and hot, yet it was too cold for lightweight nightwear. Arise the bed jacket! It was the perfect alternative.

    The ribbon tie front bed jacket is my favourite because it looks pretty whether tied or open but their are a number of different styles to suit your preference. Some of the models are made from a thicker material than other and have long sleeves - it really depends what situations you want to use them for.

    Carr & Westley offer a great range of bed jackets with new styles arriving every season. The company's aim is to become the nation's number one choice for bed jackets by offering the widest range possible. If there is a style or design that we don't yet offer, please let us know and we'll try our best to include it in our range.
