Dressing Gown or Housecoat?

Ask a Question

I'm curious to find out what everyone else calls this item of nightwear, their dressing gown or housecoat?

Dressing gown for me. I find it really strange when people call it a house coat, sounds like something from Downton Abbey 🀣

I call it a dressing gown but in certain areas of Scotland it is common for it to be known as a house coat. I don't actually own a dressing gown, my son is the only one who has a dressing gown in our house.

BORDERJOE based on the comments a lot of people haven't heard it being called a house coat, but definitely a thing in Scotland

I've always called it a dressing gown. I have several of them, thick and thin ones for different times of the year.

Dressing gown for me everytime and I love mine as it’s soft and fluffy. Especially when the weather is cold and during winter it’s a must have item.

Ha Ha Housecoat wtf! A coat is a piece of clothing with long sleeves which you wear over your other clothes when you go outside.

Definitely dressing gown for me, house coat sounds strange. The whole point of a coat is to wear it outside so why would you have one for inside?
