The best women’s bathrobe overall
Why you’ll love it: The Classic Bathrobe from Parachute is a touch of luxury at a reasonable price, and it’s so cozy and warm, you’ll never want to take it off.
Made from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton, this is the bathrobe that will warm you after a shower, keep you cozy while lounging around the house, cuddle you when you’re feeling under the weather, and keep you covered when answering the door.
As the name suggests, the style is classic bathrobe: shawl collar, tie waist, two front pockets, and an easy-but-not-too-slouchy fit. It’s fairly lightweight and comfortable to wear, so you won’t overheat or catch a chill in this robe.
The Classic Bathrobe is available in white or gray and sizes small through X-large. It reaches mid-calf on most people, though if you’re shorter, it may be longer.
Pros: Thick and cozy, highest quality cotton, absorbent
Cons: Only comes in two colors, more expensive than many other robes
The best spa-style women’s bathrobe
Why you’ll love it: Slip on the waffle-weave Spa Bathrobe from TowelSelections, and you’ll feel like you’re at your favorite spa.
If you’ve ever pampered yourself with a day at the spa, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the white, waffle-weave, lightweight robes that most spas provide for your use during your treatments. Well, although the facial and massage, unfortunately, aren’t included, you’ll still get that pampered feeling from TowelSelection’s Spa Bathrobe.
A blend of 55% Turkish cotton, 45% polyester, the Spa Bathrobe is not too heavy or hot. It’s perfect for use around the swimming pool, après shower, while traveling, or anytime you want to lounge. It’s a popular robe on Amazon as well, with more than 800 reviews and a 4.5 star average.
Buyers praise the robe’s light weight and cozy comfort, but some mention that it runs large. There are lots of colors to choose from, including red, pink, green, blue, and navy.
Sizes run from small through X-large. The Spa Bathrobe hits around mid-calf on most people. It has two front pockets.
Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, flattering fit, lots of colors, great price
Cons: If you like your robes thick and fleecy, this one isn’t for you
The best plush fleece women’s bathrobe
Why you’ll love it: If you’re looking for a fuzzy, warm, and soft bathrobe, you’ll love PajamaMania’s Women’s Fleece Robe.
Plush, polyester fleece is so cozy and soft against your skin. While it isn’t super-absorbent — this isn’t the best robe for slipping on after a shower — it’s definitely going to be your favorite robe for cozying up while watching TV or lazing around on a weekend morning.
PajamaMania’s Women’s Fleece Robe has everything you expect from a bathrobe: a shawl collar, front pockets, inner ties, thick belt, and an easy fit. It’s also supremely soft and comfy. Says one happy Amazon customer, “Love this robe! So soft and fuzzy and warm. It’s very nice quality fleece… very soft.” Plenty of other buyers agree with her, and the robe has nearly 500 reviews and an average of 4.5 stars.
You can get the robe in a number of different colors and patterns to match any style. Sizes run from small to XX-large, although some Amazon buyers mentioned that the robe runs a little small. On most people, the Women’s Fleece Robe will hit around mid-calf.
Pros: Fleecy and soft, cute patterns, reasonable price
Cons: Sheds a bit at first, runs a little small
