How Much Does a Bathrobe Weigh?

How much should a bathrobe weigh?

The weight of a bathrobe can vary depending on several factors, including the material, size, and thickness of the fabric. Most bathrobes weigh 2 to 5 pounds and can range from lightweight to heavy. While bathrobe weight is important, it’s not the only thing you should consider before deciding on which robe is best for you. In this article, you’ll learn how much specific bathrobe materials typically weigh, and other things to take into consideration. 

Bathrobe Weight By Material

Cotton and Microfiber Bathrobes

Bathrobes made from cotton or microfiber tend to be lightweight, typically weighing between 1 and 3 pounds. They’re great for general lounging and relaxation. 

Terry Cloth and Waffle Bathrobes

Bathrobes made from a terry cloth material or waffle material tend to weigh between 2 to 4 pounds and are often ideal for absorbing excess water after a shower or bath.

Plush Bathrobes

Bathrobes made from a plush or fleece material can weigh anywhere from 2 to 5 pounds, depending on the specific brand. The extra soft material makes them a good quality choice for colder climates. 

Plush Necessities Bathrobe Weight

  • The Luxe Robe: 3 pounds
  • Plush Signature Robe: 2 pounds
  • Organic Robe: 2 pounds
  • Hooded Robe: 4 pounds
  • Bamboo Terry Robe: 4 to 5 pounds

Do Lightweight Bathrobes Exist?

Yes! It’s possible to choose a lightweight bathrobe that weighs between 1 to 2 pounds and still feels comfortable enough for lounging. 

Is there a Specific Weight I Should Look For When Buying a Robe

The exact weight of your bathrobe depends on your personal preference. If you want a bathrobe that feels extra cozy, consider purchasing a plush or fleece robe. If you want a bathrobe that is extra absorbent and can be used after a shower or bath, a terry cloth bathrobe might be best for you. 

Additionally, if you want a robe that can keep you extra warm year-round, you should choose an extra soft plush robe or luxury spa robe (weighing anywhere from 2 to 3 pounds). If you prefer a robe that absorbs moisture easily but isn’t necessarily one you need for added warmth, choose a terry cloth robe (4 to 5 pounds).

To determine the specific weight of a bathrobe, check the product description or label. 

Additional Considerations

While the weight of a robe is one consideration when buying a new bathrobe, there are other factors such as size and specific features that are also things you might want to consider. 


Bathrobes are not one-size-fits-all. This makes it important to consider the size and fit when shopping for a women’s or men’s bathrobe. Choose one that is the right length for you, falling between the calf area and ankle. The sleeves should also be loose and comfortable (rather than feeling restricted) and should rest on your wrists. 


Bathrobes can come with a variety of additional features, such as hoods for added warmth or extra-large pockets for carrying around your phone or journal. Consider which features are important to you when deciding which bathrobe to purchase.
