Whether it’s to slip on pre-or-post bubble bath, to wear while you get ready, or simply as an extra cozy layer to lounge in, a great robe is a wardrobe essential. No matter whether you want fuzzy and warm or short and slinky, keep reading for nine of the best robes for women.
The Best Robes for Women
This brand may be best known for their bedding, but don’t sleep on their robes (pun intended). They have a few options to choose from, but you really can’t go wrong with this option, indeed it’s a classic. It’s snuggly and plush, reminiscent of your fave bath towel, complete with a shawl collar to keep you nice and warm. We also appreciate that it comes in sizes ranging from extra-small to 3X and five wearable, neutral colors.
If you’re anything like us, one of your favorite parts of staying at a hotel is probably wearing the hotel room robe — this under $100 option gives off those exact vibes. The waffle-weave texture is extra absorbent, and the fabric is made with a special stone washing process so that it’s extra soft right out of the gate. It also strikes the perfect balance between being light yet still warm, and we’re thoroughly impressed with how crisp the white color stays, even after repeated washes.
Is there anything more chic than a long silk robe? We think not. Enter this Lunya robe. Still, as the name suggests, the sumptuous silk is totally machine washable, a must in our book. It’s lightweight, though thermo-regulating to help keep you at the perfect temp, and we also love the elasticized cuffs that ensure the sleeves won’t get in your way while you wash your face.
This option features a unisex style and oversized fit, though isn’t too long or heavy. The cotton fabric also touts a unique ‘low twist’ technology that feels even softer and thicker than other cotton, but is still lightweight, moisture-wicking, and fast-drying, an ideal after-shower robe.
The perfect choice for winter (or for anyone who is always cold), this LL Bean bathrobe defines warm and cozy. Fun fact: It’s actually made from the same fleece material as the brand’s beloved throw blanket. The fit is relaxed and oversized, so there’s plenty of room if you want to layer it over your PJs, and the fleece-lined hood is the cherry on top. It can be monogrammed, too, making it a nice gift.
If you’re the type of person who likes to walk around with your comforter wrapped around you, this is the robe for you. Much more practical, it looks and feels like a puffy duvet, but has an almost coat-like style with large armholes and pockets that mean you can actually do things while wearing it.
Feminine and sexy — yet still comfortable — this is a choice pick for anyone looking for a lighter, shorter robe. It’s made of extra soft modal with semi-sheer detailing, plus a wider sash belt. It also has a little bit of stretch to it, helping to ensure a perfect fit, and comes in four equally pretty and wearable colors.
Nilaa Organic Cotton Bath Robe ($89; nilaa.com)
We love that this direct-to-consumer brand make all of their products to order, helping to cut costs for you and make the process more sustainable. All of their bed and bath goodies, this delightful robe included, are made of 100-perent GOTS-certified organic cotton. This one boasts a honeycomb pattern that not only adds visual interest, but also helps keep the material nice and quick-drying.
Prefer a non-neutral colored robe? Here ya go. The bold striped pattern features gorgeous brick, blue, pink, and white hues; it’s also made of 100 percent cotton and is ethically handwoven in India. Just FYI, it only comes in one (unisex) size. Seriously, though, how fun is this robe?
