WITH the UK in another lockdown, this time in the middle of winter, it’s safe to say you’re probably spending most of your time in your dressing gown.
But it turns out you’ve been wearing your robe wrong all these years, as a mum shared her life-changing hack for the proper way to put one on.
Megan, originally from England but who now lives in Canada, shared a demonstration to TikTok.
The stay-at-home-mum, who calls a dressing gown a ‘house coat’, showed herself doing up her purple robe in the traditional way, tying a knot at the front.
But she said: “I’ve been wearing a house coat wrong this whole time.”
Megan undoes it and threads the sash through the sides from the front instead – meaning you can sit back on the sofa without having anything digging in to your back.
The mum-of-three continued: “Loop it through the front vs around your back.
“Trust me, just go and try it. You’ll never wear one the same again.”
Her life hack has racked up nearly 100,000 likes, as people were blown away with the simple tip to make a dressing gown even cosier.
One person said: “Wow. How did I not know about this sooner. Thanks!!”
Another raved: “This is perfect considering I spend most of my time in my housecoat.”
A third commented: “Yay no more cutting in to my stomach.”
This person thought: “Omgoodness I did it and love my robe even better now. Thank you.”
While another added: “I think this just changed my life. Thanks for posting it!!”
Agreeing, this mum said: "Life changer! I thought I was the only one rocking a robe everyday."
