Best Bathrobes

Are you getting ready to buy a bathrobe? While it’s true that the best bathrobe for you or your partner will depend on your personal preference, there are still a few things you should consider before purchasing one. This bathrobe buying guide will tell you which materials are ideal for year-round use (giving you top value), and some additional features to consider to ensure you get the best bathrobe. 

What To Look For in the Best Bathrobe

Whether you’re shopping for the best robes for women or men, material is one of the most important factors to consider. Below are some of the best bathrobe materials:

Microfiber Fleece Robes

A microfiber fleece robe is extremely plush, super soft, and lightweight, making it a great choice for those who like to wear a cozy robe during cold mornings or evenings. 

Brushed Microfiber Robes

If you want a luxury robe perfect for lounging, consider a robe with brushed microfiber on the outside that is extra soft to the touch and packed with French terry cloth on the inside to keep you both comfortable and dry. The dual material makes it both functional and ideal for curling up on the sofa with your favorite cup of tea. 

Waffle Terry Cloth Robes

Terry cloth bathrobes are perfect for use as a towel substitute. The double-sided waffle robe and terry cloth robe material is extremely absorbent, while also feeling soft on your skin, making it ideal for use after a shower or evening bath. 

Bamboo Terry Robes

A robe made from bamboo terry cloth is as soft as silk thanks to the bamboo material. It also keeps you warm and absorbs moisture. 

Organic Cotton Bathrobes

Cotton robes are lightweight and breathable, while also using cotton that is sustainably sourced. These robes are great for use year-round and are long-lasting. 

There is also a silk robe, flannel robe, turkish cotton robe, satin robe, linen robes, and more, but the above robes (microfiber fleece, waffle terry, bamboo, and organic cotton robes) provide year-round comfort. 

Additional Considerations For Choosing the Best Bathrobe

While the material of the robe you select is important, make sure to also consider a few other factors when choosing the best robe for you and your loved one:


The size of a robe matters. If you choose a robe that is one-size-fits-all, there’s a good chance it’s going to be too large or too small for you. By selecting a robe that has a sizing chart, you’ll ensure your robe is loose in all the right places and fits comfortably. Robes should fall around the calf area and have sleeves that are loose, wide, and rest at the wrists. 

Hooded Robes

Robes with a hood keep your head warm after a bath or shower, or even while resting on the sofa on a lazy weekend morning. 

Roomy Pockets

If you like to carry around your phone or book, you might want to consider a bathrobe with extra large pockets. 

Easy Maintenance

Choose a robe with easy washing instructions, such as robes that are machine washable. These will be the fastest ones to clean without causing a hassle. 


There’s no need to break the bank with an overpriced robe. There are several high-quality, luxury options that range from $89 to $120. 

What are the Best Bathrobes For Women to Wear for Warmth and Comfort Around the House?

The best bathrobes for women who want to feel warm and cozy around the house are robes made from a plush, microfiber fleece or a cozy cotton robe. These types of robes offer a feeling of coziness while also being stylish. While it might be tempting to purchase a scotch plaid flannel robe, these robes are often very heavy and can feel itchy. 

Which Bathrobe is Considered the Best Overall Choice? 

The bathrobe that is the best overall choice is going to depend on your personal preference. However, most people enjoy a robe that is soft, comfortable, and stylish. Many people also prefer a long robe with a shawl collar.
