Whether you use one post-shower, slip one on for #selfcaresunday, or just like to generally be wrapped up when lounging around the house, there’s no denying that putting on a robe always elicits majorly cozy and relaxed vibes. There’s also the utilitarian aspect, of course, since there’s no better way to stay warm and covered up. But as any regular robe-wearer will tell you, not all robes are created equal (and if you’re anything like us, you judge hotels and spas by the quality of their robes…but we digress). So we rounded up the best options out there, with something for every preference, from long and plush to short and silky.
Check out our list of the best robes for women and get ready for some serious robe relaxation.
Best Overall: Parachute Classic Bathrobe
It’s not surprising that there was once a 2,000 person waitlist for this standout staple. Made from 100% Turkish cotton, this best-seller is plush and cozy, yet light enough that you can wear it year-round, and is also fast-drying and absorbent (always good features for a robe). There are two front pockets, a waist tie, and a shawl collar; we’re also big fans of the just-below-the-knee length and four neutral colors it comes in.
Best Luxury: Slip Silk Robe
From the brand known for their silk pillowcase comes this majorly luxurious robe, made of the same, ultra-high quality silk. With a wrap front and slits on either side, it’s the epitome of glam; the only thing missing is a butler to serve you breakfast in bed while you wear it. FYI, it comes in only one size.

Best Lightweight: Natori Shangri-La Robe
Made of modal jersey fabric that’s equal parts comfortable and breathable, this a great pick for summer or for anyone who lives in warmer climates. Still, it’s ankle-grazing length offers plenty of coverage up while the kimono style sleeves add a sophisticated touch.
Best Mini: Lunya Washable Silk Robe
Made of thermoregulating silk, this helps maintain your body temperature, a nice feature for anyone who likes to sleep in a robe. It also has an interior tie for added security—no risk of accidental flashing—and the elastic cuffs keep the sleeves out of the way and from getting wet while you wash your face. True to its name, you can also throw it right in the washing machine.
Best Plush: Mark & Graham Turkish Hydro Cotton Bathrobe
Not only is this pleasingly plush, but it’s also extraordinarily soft and absorbent, choice if you like to slip into something super cozy immediately post-bath. You can also have it monogrammed (hello, great gift idea).

Best for Lounging: Brooklinen Hammam Robe
We highly recommended swapping your ratty sweats for this adorable robe whenever you’re logging some serious couch time. A terrycloth interior keeps you warm and cozy, while the striped pattern makes this look almost like real clothes. Bonus points for the hood, too.
Best Bridal: Eberjey Beatrix Full Lace Robe
Wear this while getting ready on your wedding morning or on your wedding night—with sheer eyelet lace sleeves and trim, it’s feminine, sexy, and oh-so bridal. It’s made of super-soft modal with a touch of spandex for stretch, and there’s also a matching chemise to wear underneath if you want a complete set.
Best Waffle Weave: West Elm Geo Waffle Organic Cotton Robe
The unique geometric waffle weave patterns set this apart from standard waffle weave robes, though it still offers that same perfect medium-weight and softness. Made of organic cotton, the unisex style also has two different loops for adjustable belt height, plus inseam pockets, another smart touch.
Best Terry Cotton: Snowe Classic Bathrobe
Yes, the terry cotton of this robe is soft and cozy and all the good stuff you get with cotton. But the innovative version used here is air woven and so fast-drying that you could even skip using a towel when you get out of the shower if you really wanted to. Top tip: Avoid using fabric softener or dryer sheets when washing to maintain its absorbency.
Best Bamboo: Agatinia Kimono Short Robe
There’s a good reason why this robe is used in spas in Philadelphia and New York. Made of a bamboo cotton fiber, it’s both moisture-wicking and odor-absorbing, not to mention feels extremely soft. This chic style comes in five colors, three of which also come in a long version. Pick one up to make every day feel like a spa day.
Best Silk: The Ethical Silk Company Mulberry Silk Robe
All the robes from this company are fair trade and made from an eco-friendly production process where the silkworms aren’t harmed. The result? Silk that’s even softer than normal. Not to mention that silk is also hypoallergenic and, unlike cotton, won’t absorb moisture from your skin. And at the end of the day, it just feels so darn good on. We also love the variety of fun geometric patterns and prints this comes in, ideal for anyone who is over basic white.
