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 spills and coffee drips like a champ (shout out to OxiClean). But the best women's bathrobes 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? We polled purewow editors and read through hundreds of customer reviews to find ones just that special.

Each of these 26 top picks has been vetted for comfort, quality, ease of care and most importantly, coziness. We combed through waffle robes, fleece robes, floor-length robes, silk robes, linen robes—you name it, we found it.

What to Look for in a Bathrobe:

Material

Cotton, linen, silk or a synthetic blend? In order to decide which fabric to choose, take a moment in front of your closet to scan what materials you wear most and are most comfortable in. Wear lots of breezy t-shirts? A lightweight cotton or linen robe might be your happy place. Always have a sweater nearby? A woven chenille will appeal to you. Do you enjoy the liquid feel of your silk blouses and dresses? Then let's hope there's a washable silk robe in your future. And then there's linen, a fabric you might not think of as a robe material, but one that's especially suitable. Flax Home co-founder Vivian McCormick says that "linen is a superior fabric for robes because it’s lightweight, temperature regulating, quick to dry and antimicrobial, as well as sustainably cultivated." Further, she points out, the material "packs small, which makes it perfect for home or taking on the go—traveling, the pool or the gym."

Functionality

TikTok's "robe culture" hashtag is full of women devoting afternoons to neatening up their spaces and undertaking self-care rituals, which is a relaxing undertaking but not if your bat-wing sleeves are catching on every doorknob or your flimsy wrap-front robe is letting the girls flop out every few minutes. Thoughtful design details are what you're paying for in a premium robe—for example Lunya founder Ashley Merrill says that, in the brand's washable silk robe, for example, "every detail is in service of your best rest, like the gathered wrist which allows you to keep your sleeves out of the way when you are washing your face, and the delicately rolled ties both inside and outside the garment to keep you covered and comfortable."  In order to select your perfect robe, consider what you'll be using it for—because post-shower cuddling on the couch calls for a fluffy affair, while a robe that doubles as a post-swim coverup would skew more toward sleek and tailored.

Warmth

We've all shivered in a lightweight robe or felt nauseated under a heat-retaining robe in an overly warm room. Be mindful of your body's metabolic set point, and choose a bulky robe if you're always cold or a lightweight or temperature-regulating style if you get overheated easily.

What Material Makes the Softest Robe?

It's much-debated, and every lady has her preference...but we're prepared to die on this hill: the Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Adult Robe, made of machine-knit microfiber polyester, is like a full-body cuddle with your favorite childhood plush toy. Need more proof? Oprah loves it.

How Often Should You Wash a Bathrobe?

According to Parachute Home, makers of our pick for best waffle robe, robes must be laundered promptly in case of a spill or stain, otherwise treat it to a machine wash with mild detergent every three or four times you wear it.

The Best Bathrobes for Women at a Glance:

SKIMS

1. Skims Cozy Knit Robe

Best Overall

To cut to the chase: Nothing compares to SKIMS loungewear, so you can bet its robes are some of the softest, coziest options available. "The SKIMS fleece robe is no joke," says editor Olivia Dubyak. "As soon as the weather gets below 60 I have fleece everything: sheets, blankets, pillows, PJs and more. This robe is one of the softest, coziest fleece materials I own and I want to buy another this year." The knit polyester fabric is breathable, and looks and feels luxurious, which is why you'll want to buy it in as many colors as possible (there are seven to choose from).

Size range: XXS/XS to 4X/5X

2. Eberjey Gisele Robe

Best Splurge-Worthy Option

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 navy.

3. Old Market Shop Upcycled Sari Kimono

Best Less-Expensive Option

As a business consultant that specializes in digital design, Athens, Georgia-based Beth Thrasher is picky about her style choices. "I got this awesome robe on Etsy made of old silk saris—it's thin and soft—and I got one for my teen daughter, too. It's not only pretty patchwork, but it withstood a hot water wash and the dry cycle." Bonus: As a natural fiber, silk is ideal for hot climates.

Brooklinen

4. Brooklinen Super-plus Robe

Best Fluffy Cotton Robe

Commerce Director Pam Masin appreciates her Brooklinen robe. "It's stayed soft after so many washings, and is still warm and fluffy, without making me feel like a giant marshmallow," she says. 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 conveniently deep pockets, if that’s something that’s important to you.

Size range: XS to XL

Parachute

5. Parachute Waffle Robe

Best Waffle Robe

Tend to overheat easily? Opt for this lightweight number, made of 100 percent Turkish cotton. It's the go-to for editor Candace Davison: "I’m a fan of Parachute’s cotton robe, which feels light but sturdy, and you don’t overheat if you wear it for more than 15 minutes." And reviewers love the waffled texture and folded collar design with hip pockets, since it makes wearers feel like they’re at a world-class spa.

Size range: X-Small to 3X

6. California Cowboy La Sirena Robe

Best Sporty

I'm a big fan of this brand, which I discovered on the beaches here in California. It's perfect for wearing as a beach coverup like the surfers do, since it has features like a secure dry pocket to keep your phone safe from salt water and sand, a sunglasses loop, a belt that stays on and for laughs, a Champagne pocket. I've yet to see a surfer use that feature, and I haven't either, but the wide choice of colorways and men's and women's sizes mean this is a great gift.

Size range: XS/S to XL/2XL

7. Pavilia Premium Fleece Robe

Best For Those Who Are Always Cold

We all have that friend or family member (or maybe it’s you) who is perpetually chilly. This ankle-length fleece robe will keep her feeling warm, and the addition of an equally cozy hood means even her ears and cheeks are guaranteed to feel toasty. There's also the option to buy the same style without the hood in even more fun hues.

Size range: Small-medium to 2X-3X

8. Hill House Home Drew Robe

Best Monogrammable

Cotton interlock fabric that's the same cuddly lightweight material used in baby products is the material on this above-the-knee wrap robe. We love the sweet print selection that coordinates with the brand's signature nap dresses. For an extra $15, get your monogram on your left chest, to make your sleepwear extra special.

Size range: XXS to XXL

9. Monarch Terry-Lined Hotel Robe

Best Spa-Like Option

This is the robe you'll find at luxe hotels and spas around the world, with a generous drape of twill microfiber outer and soft, lightweight 80 percent cotton/20 percent polyester toweling inside. And of course it's also machine washable (score!).

Size range: S to XXL

10. Just Love Printed Plush Bathrobe

Best Velour

We can’t get enough of the beautiful scalloped pattern on this plush velour robe. Even better, it comes in sizes XS through 3X in 20 color options. It’s also machine washable, so you don’t have to worry if you accidentally spill a little rosé while binge-watching the latest season ofThe Bachelorette.

Size range: X-Small to 3X

Saks Fifth Avenue

11. Natori Luxe Shangri-la Robe

Best Luxury

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.

12. U2SKIIN Cotton Robe

Best T-Shirt Feel

You know your favorite lived-in cotton T-shirt? This 100-percent organic cotton robe has the same ultra-soft, breathable feeling, but without the years of wear required to get there. The knee-length cut and 3/4-length sleeves make this a good option for warmer climates or summer months, but don’t let that stop you from lounging in this beauty 365 days a year, no matter where you live.

Size range: Small to XX-Large

13. Alexander Del Rossa Fleece Robe

Best Size Range

This long fleece robe comes in sizes XS through 4X and is available in 18 beautiful hues, meaning there is a style for anyone and everyone, all for under 50 bucks. We adore the incredibly cozy material, that’s warm but not stifling. There are also two sets of belt loops—one higher on the waist for shorter folks, and one lower for taller individuals—as an added fit bonus.

Size range: X-Small to 5X-6X

Lunya

14. Lunya Washable Silk Robe

Best Silk

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.

15. L.L.Bean Scotch Plaid Flannel Robe

Best Flannel

Long-staple cotton is woven into traditional plaid patterns, then each side of the fabric is brushed eight times to ensure that signature soft flannel feel. The knee-length cut of this L.L.Bean robe and front patch pockets are cute on everyone, and the plus and petite options let wearers select just the right proportions to stay warm without being swallowed in fabric.

Size range: XS to XL; Petite and Plus

16. Flax Home The Long Robe

Best Linen Robe

Linen is super-soft and deliciously wrinkled, and this generously proportioned robe (it's 47 inches long, shoulder to knee) makes the most of its comfort. It's the kind of clothing you won't take off all weekend, with its deep pockets to hold your phone, tissues, even the remote, and two inside ties that keep it from flapping open (the bane of every robe wearer). Warm yet lightweight and breathable, linen is the stealth star of the year-round robe hanger-outer.

Size range: One size

L.L. Bean

17. 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 and plush 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.

Sire range: XS to XL, Petite and Plus

18. Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Robe

Oprah-Approved

You’ve probably heard of the celeb-adored Barefoot Dreams blankets (Oprah even included them in her "Top Ten Gifts to Give and Receive" in past years). This is basically the blanket in robe form. Each shawl-neck style is made from the brand’s signature CozyChic fabric, which won’t ever shrink or pill.

19. Petit Plume Silk Robe with Feathers

Best Bridal

The heft of 22 mm silk satin against your skin, with maribou feather trim around the cuffs, is a glamorous siren moment that you will both remember. And in case pure white isn't your thing, it's also available in jet black.

Size range: X-Small to X-Large

Best for Summer

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.

21. Cosabella Bella Maternity Pj Set

Best Maternity Option

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 there so why not treat yourself to something you wouldn't normally buy? 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.

Size range: S to L

22. 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.

Size range: XS to XL

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, the cotton-polyester blend is still super-soft and comfortable.
