What is the Best Bathrobe To Buy

Best Bathrobe to Buy

With temperatures cooling down for the fall season, it’s the perfect time to buy a durable, comfortable bathrobe. When considering what is the best bathrobe to buy, there are a few elements to consider. This includes the material, length and fit, warmth, features, maintenance, and budget.

Bathrobe Guide: The Best Bathrobe to Buy

Whether you’re shopping for the best bathrobes for women or men, consider the below before making your decision:


Bathrobes come in a wide variety of materials. From cotton terry robes to terry cloth, fleece robes, microfiber robes, a silk robe (or washable silk robe), flannel robes, a plush robe, a waffle weave robe, a turkish cotton robe, a waffle bathrobe, linen robes, scotch plaid flannel robe - the material choices can feel endless. Ultimately, the choice of material will depend on your preference for softness, durability, and purpose. For example, if you plan on using your bathrobe after baths and showers to serve as a towel, then a terry cloth robe will be the best option for you - they’re extremely absorbent, making them the perfect post-shower robe. If you want a robe that is extra soft and cozy, a microfiber is probably a better choice for your needs. 


It’s important when choosing the best bathrobe to buy that you consider the size and fit. Because what good is a soft, cozy cotton robe if it’s too small for you? And bathrobes are not one-size-fits-all, so you want to choose one that is the right length for you (falling around the calf area) and with sleeves that are loose and wide and rest at your wrists. 

Choosing the Right Size for Your Bathrobe


If you’re purchasing a bathrobe for the fall and winter months, look for one that is made from microfiber fleece. Some people think a flannel robe is the only option for warmth, but microfiber fleece robes are ideal for cold temps. They’re also designed with a generously sized shawl collar, keeping you and your partner extra cozy on winter days or brisk mornings. 

Warm Robes


Look for features like extra-large pockets, belts, or hoods, depending on your specific needs. If you’re someone who likes to carry around your journal or a favorite book or phone, large pockets are a must. If you prefer to wear something over your head for extra comfort, then a hooded bathrobe will be a good fit. 


Make sure to read the care instructions for any robes you’re considering. Some might require special care such as hand washing or even dry cleaning. If that’s too much for you, look for bathrobes that are machine washable. They’ll be fast and easy to clean. 


Set a budget for the bathrobe you want to buy. Some robes online can be hundreds of dollars, but there’s no need to break the bank for a luxury robe. There are several options that range from $89 to $120 while still providing the durability and high-quality materials you need to ensure your robe lasts. 

Are Expensive Robes Worth It?

It’s unlikely spending hundreds of dollars on your bathrobe is going to be worth it - that’s because these days you can find robes that provide you with all the comfort, softness, and luxury you need, without compromising craftsmanship.

Which Robe Absorbs Water the Best?
