There are a lot of great bathrobes out there. And chances are, the one you currently own does the job just fine. It keeps you warm post-shower and takes your makeup smudges and coffee drips like a champ (shout out to OxiClean). But some bathrobes just go above and beyond. You know, like the super plush one that Vivian wears in Pretty Woman? Yeah, we wanted to find robes like that, so we scoured the internet, polled our friends and read tons of reviews. Here, the 20 best robes for women on the market.
Brooklinen’s robes are just as high-quality as its sheets. Each one is made from 100 percent long-staple Turkish cotton, making them super soft to lounge in. The design also features convenient deep pockets, if that’s something that’s important to you.
This robe’s modal and polyester blend fabric is described as “blissfully soft,” which definitely caught our attention. But the lace trim on the sleeves and mid-length style is what really sold us. Psst, there’re a matching nightgown, if you want to take your PJs to the next level.
Tend to overheat easily? Opt for this lightweight, 100 percent Turkish cotton robe. Reviewers assure that it’ll keep you cocooned and comfortable, without making you break a sweat. And the waffled texture and folded collar design with hip pockets will make you feel like you’re at a world-class spa.
Let’s be honest, having to re-tie your robe as you go about your morning gets old, fast. So this zip-up alternative from L.L. Bean is pretty genius. The 95 percent cotton material is smooth on the outside, but softly looped to be extra soft on the inside. Plus, the front pouch is perfect to throw your phone in…or to keep your hands cozy while you’re lounging on the couch.
You’ve probably heard of the celeb-adored Barefoot Dreams blankets. This is basically one of those couch necessities, just in robe form. Each shawl-neck style is made from the brand’s signature CozyChic fabric, which won’t ever shrink or pill.
Reviewers say that this 100 percent cotton robe is soft, flattering and ideal for warmer weather. It has a subtle quilted pattern and is totally machine washable—just make sure you use the cold setting. According to the brand it’s “ideal for relaxing in the evenings” and TBH, we could totally see ourselves slipping this on with a glass of wine in hand after a long day of work.
You know the robes you find hanging in the closet at chic boutique and five-star hotels? They’re usually from Frette. PureWow fashion editor Dena Silver invested in one and admits, “It’s a bit bougie, but this robe is made from the softest terry cloth I’ve ever felt.” This particular style is 100 percent cotton and moisture-wicking, too. We’re sold.
Washable silk sounds too good to be true, right? Well, in this case it’s not. According to Lunya, you can machine wash this 100 percent silk robe (as long as you use the cold setting) and lay it flat to dry. Unlike most silk robes, it has pockets and an interior tie to ensure that everything stays in place, because we all know silk can get slippery.
Behold, proof that a really nice robe doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. At only $27, this ankle-length fleece has racked up more than 500 five-star reviews on Amazon, which speaks to its top-notch quality, softness and warmth.
The only thing better than a 100 percent cotton robe? A 100 percent organic cotton robe. This one from Pottery Barn is Oeko-Tex certified, meaning that it’s free from harmful chemicals. The retailer will also monogram your robe for $12, so your partner won’t “accidentally” wear yours.
Sometimes, less is more. And that’s definitely the case when it comes to this simple number. Made from 100 percent pima cotton, it’s unbelievably soft, features a relaxed fit, and is free from any unnecessary frills. Sounds like our kind of robe.
Brookstone’s polyester n-a-p fabric is designed to feel extra plush and luxurious. And according to buyers, it stays that way even after multiple washes. Just note that this is a unisex style, so it may be a little long if you’re petite.
This robe comes in soft floral patterns and honestly, we kind of want one of each. After all, we can picture ourself sipping our Saturday morning coffee out on the deck in all three. Buyers say that it’s the ideal weight for summer weather.
Just a heads-up, you may have a hard time getting dressed in your actual clothes after you put on this hooded wrap. “This robe is sooo comfy. I get that ‘just [lay] down in bed after a long day’ feeling right when I put it on,” one buyer writes.
With over 1,000 five-star reviews, it’s safe to say this is one of the most popular women’s robes on Amazon. Between its pretty herringbone pattern and the fact that it’s machine washable, we can see why. Having seven different colorways to choose from doesn’t hurt either.
On the hunt for a chic waffled robe that won’t break the bank? Look no further. At just $24, this full-length robe will give you the same effect as one four times its price. And while it’s not 100 percent cotton like a pricier one might be, reviewers say that the cotton-polyester blend is still soft and comfortable.
Eberjey is known for its expensive—but worth it—pajama sets. Naturally, this guy is no different. “I have always loved how pretty and comfortable this robe is. It’s somehow both warm and lightweight, so it feels seasonless,” explains Rachel Bowie, director of special projects at PureWow. In fact, she loves it so much that she owns it in both pink and white.
With summer on its way, we have a feeling we won’t be craving a warm, fluffy bathrobe in a few months’ time. That’s why come May or June, PureWow editor Roberta Fiorito reaches for this Hanky Panky style. “The satin waist tie is thick and long enough to actually hold the robe closed—it never comes undone. And the sleeves are the perfect length and don’t get in the way when I’m putting on makeup or doing my hair,” she explains.
Find something more appealing than a cashmere robe; we’ll wait. “She’s lightweight but she’s cozy, she’s supersoft and she has that Goldilocks length—not too long, not too short. That goes for the sleeves too,” says PureWow senior editor Cristina Gutierrez. Oh, and did we mention it’s on sale right now? Yeah, we just added to cart.
The brand suggests that you “embrace spa luxury” in its waffle weave and we intend to do just that, thank you very much. The ultra absorbent fabric is made from 100 percent Turkish cotton, so you’ll never want to take it off.
