Between the Sheets Leopard Play Collection A/W 2013

Between the Sheets is one of those lingerie brands that kind of sneaks up on you. I'd known Layla L'obatti, the designer behind BTS, for years before I purchased my first item from them. But the instant I tried it on, I knew it wouldn't be my last purchase. I don't think I even really understood the point of loungewear before I started collecting Between the Sheets; now, many of this brand's pieces are in my weekly rotation. And after many years of being in the industry, this is a brand that's finally getting the attention it deserves.
The 'Leopard Play' collection was one of the lines I saw while in New York for lingerie market. I thought the gold leopard print, particularly on the robes, was perfect for the holidays, and I love that Layla is adding these new, luxe touches while still retaining her easy brand aesthetic. The robes retail for $135, the babydolls for $95, and the tap pants (not shown here) for $40. Like everything Between the Sheets produces, all items are ethically made in New York City.
In addition, while the sizing range for this indie brand may seem small (XS thru L are the sizes available), everything I've tried from Between the Sheets has been very generously cut. I can't speak to how these pieces in particular fit since I haven't tried them, but I will say that even if you appear to be out of the size range according to the size chart, drop BTS a line anyway and make sure. My first few BTS purchases were Large. Then I started buying Medium. Now I'm pretty sure I could take a Small in some pieces, which never happens.
I have a feeling I'll grab one of these robes as a holiday gift to myself. I'm not sure which color. What do you think of Between the Sheets' holiday 'Leopard Play' collection? Is this the sort of thing you would wear?
