Let’s face it, it’s January, which means most of us are spending our nights curled up on the sofa with a cuppa, binge watching a new Netflix series.

While clothes shopping may be out of the question this month, treating yourself to one new item is definitely needed to beat the January blues - and we’ve found a cosy item of clothing that is totally justifiable.

M&S has created a £25 Flexifit Hooded Lounge Dress (which comes in sizes 6 to 24) and, according to the reviews, it’s worth every penny.

The designs Flexifit technology means there is added stretch, which makes for extra comfort, perfect for curling up in a ball on the sofa to watch your favourite boxset.

The long sleeved dress falls just above the ankles and features a hood, which has drawstring detail that can be tightened to suit your preference.

There’s also a handy pocket on the front for your phone, lip balm and other staples.

As for why women are loving the longline item? It’s cosy, not too hot and chicer than your usual dressing gown.

“I’ve always worn dressing gowns, but I bought this as it looked really nice. I’m so glad I did, it’s lovely, not too heavy, but snuggly” reads one five-star review.

Another customer adds: “You need never worry who comes to the door! Loved the item so much that I purchased another two!”

Many women are even bulk buying the item.

“I quickly bought a second” said one women, while another stated “after day one I ordered the grey version as well. Please M&S do more of these and more colours.”
