The Ultimate Guide to Women’s Robe Styles From Kimonos to Spa Robes

The Ultimate Guide to Women’s Robe Styles From Kimonos to Spa Robes

When looking for the perfect women’s robe, there are several key features to consider to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. How long your robe will remain high-quality, the specific style, breathability, material, and more, are each important considerations.

Whether you plan to wear your robe while lounging around your house, enjoying a cozy morning routine, or staying warm during cooler evenings, the right robe will transform how you relax. That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate guide to women’s robes to help you find the perfect robe for your everyday use.

What To Look For in a Women’s Robe

Before deciding on which robe to purchase, make sure you take into account these considerations so that your robe helps you reach all your comfort goals:


Your robe should last for years without you needing to compromise comfort or functionality. Choose a robe made with high-quality, luxury materials such as microfiber fleece, terry cloth, or organic cotton to ensure it lasts through daily use and frequent washing.

Stylish Design

Every woman’s robe should look good. Choose a robe with a color that you find appealing and reflects your taste. If you’ll mostly be using your robe for relaxing, consider a color that is more neutral (rather than something bright).

Belt or Tie Closure

Many women’s robes come with a belt or tie closure to help you secure the robe comfortably around your waist, similar to the style of kimono robes and silk robes. This way your robe always stays in place while you’re making your morning breakfast or bedtime tea.

Shawl Collar Robes and Hooded Robes

Robes with shawl collars or hooded robes add an extra layer of warmth and coziness, making them ideal for chilly mornings or evenings. Wrap yourself in your robe with a shawl collar while sipping your morning coffee on the patio, or reading a book on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Large Pockets

Large, functional pockets are a highly sought-after feature in women's robes. They make it easy to carry your phone for texting with friends, a notebook, lip balm, your favorite snacks, or other smaller items you might need while lounging.

Plush Feel

Softness and comfort are essential for a luxurious robe. Look for robes made from materials like cotton, fleece, or microfiber for a plush and cozy feeling against your skin. After a long bath or shower, you can slip into your plush fleece robe or cotton robe for a spa-like experience in the comfort of your home.

Machine Washable

Convenience is key, especially when you’re busy working and running errands. Choose a robe that is machine washable for easy cleaning and maintenance. After a relaxing bubble bath, you can simply toss your fleece robes or terry robes in the washing machine, tumble dry low, and enjoy an ultra-clean robe the next day.

Length and Coverage

Always consider the length of the robe. Many women prefer robes that hit at the mid-knee or mid-calf so that they can be worn as a comfortable extra layer over their pajamas during colder nights or mornings.


You’ll be able to get year-round use out of your cozy, plush bathrobe by considering the breathability of the fabric. Lightweight cotton robes are great for warmer weather, while thicker materials provide warmth in colder seasons. On a summer morning, wear a breathable robe while enjoying a cup of tea on your balcony.
