“You can’t be glamorous all the time!”…Said no Bombshell ever! A true Bombshell is effortlessly glamorous whether it’s the turn of a collar or a pop of lipstick.
However, whilst we love our dresses and the confidence that we feel the moment we step into our Bombshell; there are those times when one requires something a little more comfortable whilst still retaining the glamour and style. That’s precisely when the Bombshell Robe steals it’s style moment! Whilst we love looking fabulous in our Confident or Grace dress, robes are the perfect choice for keeping things effortlessly sleek at home. Looking to entertain or relax in style, a Robe is the perfect outfit.
From Mae West to Marilyn Monroe; robes were a firm fashion favourite of the starlets of Hollywood’s Golden Age. They provided them with a go-to wardrobe staple that gave them the style expected of a silver-screen siren, whilst allowing for comfort and ease in-between takes during filming. Indeed they featured heavily in recent Netflix hit “Hollywood;” where characters would lavishly lounge looking regal in their robes.
There’s a definite clear and defined nod towards the housecoats of the 1950s; when women would change into something just to wear around the house but still keep an element of formality and fabulousness.
One mustn’t dismiss or see a robe as a dressing gown. Whilst the humble dressing gown provides the cosiness of bed as we eat breakfast and get ready for the day ahead; a dazzling robe provides us with style and comfort and can be worn all day; and even dressed up for visiting guests! Indeed when Bombshell Founder Katya Wildman met burlesque beauty and Hollywood star Dita Von Teese after her sensational show at The London Palladium; the stylish star had opted for a stunning Jenny Packham sequin robe in a dark red to greet her fans.
Proving that robes are the perfect midpoint between the comfort of home loungewear and the glamour of a show-stopping dress.
Our robes are flattering and fabulous, figure-hugging yet floaty; they compliment all shapes and sizes from petite to fuller busts, hourglass or apple waists, and....
This Magical Bombshell robe incorporates a shoulder pad which creates structure and balance.
The flattering doesn’t just stop at your figure as we’ve also added a beautiful bell-sleeve to compliment the arms perfectly and the gowns are machine washable!
As ever we’ve given our Bombshells the options of several fabrics to choose from. From subtle but show-stopping we’ve gone for a sumptuous velvet that screams sophisticated chic.
For high beam glamour and vintage Hollywood style
And for that all out Hollywood glamour and showgirl shimmer, we’ve also created our robes in sequins too. But why stop there? Shoes complete the dress and slippers complete the robe! We’ve also launched the most fabulous and fluffy Fou-Fou slippers to complete your robe look whilst keeping you right on trend!
When will I wear a robe you may ask…
Darling but when won’t you wear a robe?
They ooze glamour whilst remaining effortlessly chic. They allow us to bring Hollywood style and a touch of fabulous to our every day lives. Dress them up with a bling brooch and heels to wear out for dinner or maybe just to lounge around on a weekend away.

They’re also perfect for brides and bridal parties; as you hurry from room to room as Mother Of The Bride helping add those finishing touches on your daughters big day! They also allow for the bride and her bridesmaids to relax perfectly and comfortably They are always camera ready and you don’t have to worry about creasing!
