The 25 Best Bathrobes for Women (Because You Probably Need Something New to Lounge In)
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? Or Chrissy Teigen’s collection of gorgeous silk stunners? Or even your hubby’s ridiculously soft flannel robe (which, despite its numerous holes is still one of the comfiest things he owns)? Yeah, we wanted to find robes like that, so we scoured the internet, polled our friends and read tons of reviews. Here, the absolute best bathrobes for women on the market.
1. Brooklinen Super-Plus Robe
Best Fluffy Cotton
Brooklinen’s robes are just as high-quality as its sheets because each one is made from 100 percent long-staple Turkish cotton. The design also features convenient deep pockets, if that’s something that’s important to you.
2. Natori Luxe Shangri-La Robe
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 PJ set, if you want to take your sleepwear to the next level.
3. Parachute Waffle Robe
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.
4. L.L. Bean Women’s Ultrasoft Sweatshirt Robe
Best Zip-Up Design
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.
5. Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Unisex Robe
You’ve probably heard of the celeb-adored Barefoot Dreams blankets (Oprah even included them in her Oprah’s Top Ten Gifts to Give and Receive this past year). 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.
6. Lauren Ralph Lauren Quilted Collar Robe
Best for Summer Nights
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.
7. Frette at Home Unisex Milano Terry Bathrobe
You know the robes you find hanging in the closet at chic boutique and five-star hotels? They’re usually from Frette. PureWow fashion director 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.
8. Lunya Washable Silk Robe
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.
9. Pavilia Premium Women’s Fleece Robe with Satin Trim
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 3,400 five-star reviews on Amazon, which speaks to its top-notch quality, softness and warmth.
10. Pottery Barn Organic Hydrocotton Robe
Most Eco-Friendly Cotton
The only thing better than a 100 percent cotton robe? A 100 percent organic cotton robe. This one from Pottery Barn is both Oeko-Tex and Global Organic Textile Standard 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.
11. Summersalt The Cloud 9 Silky Robe
Best Affordable Silk Option
You don’t need to break the bank to get a luxurious, silk robe. In fact, you don’t even need to go over 100 bucks, thanks to Summersalt. This short patterned style comes in four fun prints, all of which have matching PJ sets and nightgowns so you can rock a whole set or have fun mixing and matching to create your own unique ‘fit.
12. Skin. Stormie Short Quilted Robe
If you’ve ever wished you could just wrap yourself up in your quilted duvet while roaming about the house (you know, without tripping over every step), let us introduce you to Skin.’s Stormie robe. It’s got just enough padding to feel like your favorite blanket without insulating you to the point of overheating. And if you wanted to wear it out of the house as a duvet coat, we wouldn’t judge.
13. L.L.Bean Men's Scotch Plaid Flannel Robe
We’ve searched and searched for a women’s flannel robe as soft as the ones our partners, brothers and dads all wear, but alas, it appears the best option is to just buy the exact style they own for ourselves so we aren’t force to keep stealing theirs. The knee-length cut of this L.L.Bean robe won’t overwhelm petite frames, but there is also a tall option for anyone looking for a floor-grazing flannel to wrap themselves in from head to toe.
14. Brookstone n-a-p Bathrobe
Easiest to Care For
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 and spins through the dryer. Just note that this is a unisex style, so it may be a little long if you’re petite.
15. Cosabella Bella Maternity PJ Set
Best Maternity Splurge
True, most robes will easily accommodate your expanding belly without needing to purchase a specific maternity style, but you’re growing a whole other human in your there so why not buy yourself a luxurious treat to celebrate your hard work? This super-soft, lightweight robe also comes with matching PJ pants and a floaty tank top (with adjustable straps) to make bedtime feel all the more comfortable.
16. Ugg Miranda Robe
Best Hooded Bathrobe
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.
17. Seven Apparel Hotel Spa Collection Plush Robe
Best Textured Style (That Isn’t Waffle Knit)
With over 5,800 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.
18. Amazon Essentials Women's Lightweight Waffle Robe
Best Affordable Waffle Knit
On the hunt for a chic waffled robe that’s budget-friendly? Look no further. At less than $40 (some colors are even under $25), 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.
19. Eberjey Lady Godiva Robe
Splurge-Worthy Short Style
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.
20. Naadam Pajama Robe
Best for Tall Frames
The maxi length of this incredibly soft modal-blend makes it a great option for tall gals who just can’t seem to find a robe to match their height. The fabric also has a lovely cooling effect at first touch, making this an ideal choice for staying cozy in warmer weather without overheating.
21. Luxurious Wellniss The Blanche Lace Robe
Sometimes you want a robe you can curl up in for an afternoon nap, and sometimes you want something a little slinkier to slip into. This all-over lace number is here for the latter instances. It also comes in white for any brides looking for something pretty to wear while they prep for the big day.
22. MASONgrey Kimono Robe
Good For All Seasons
“I'm the kind of person who has a winter robe and a summer robe (don’t judge),” admits fashion director Dena Silver. “But this MASONgrey style has served me well all throughout the past year. It’s not too heavy, but also not too light. And the super-stretchy fleece material is oh so cozy.” We’re also fans of the high slits on each side making it easier to walk and lounge around in whatever position you like without having to adjust your clothing.
23. Rough Linen St. Barts Linen Robe
Best Linen Robe
“Linen is basically the A/C unit of clothes,” says editor Brianna Lapolla. So if you’re the type who’s fully outfitted their life in linen, then we highly suggest splurging on this luxe short robe from Rough Linen. Beyond it’s cooling effect, it also quickly wicks moisture away from the body so you can dry off faster post-shower. Plus, it’ll only get softer and more cozy each time you wash it.
24. Printfresh Bagheera Robe
