    Best Overall: Parachute Classic Bathrobe

    If a robe’s fanbase is any indication of its quality, Parachute’s classic bathrobe soars above the competition. This 100 percent long-staple Turkish cotton robe has been the subject of endless praise. It even had a waitlist when it was first released!

    The cotton is weighted 450 grams per square meter, which is optimal for year-round wear. Once you slip it on, you'll find it to be the perfect combination of plushness and absorbency.

    The robe is available in small, medium, large, and extra large sizes, and in white and a gray stone color. It also includes two oversized front pockets and a shawl collar for those chilly mornings.

    Reviewers rave that this robe dries quickly after a shower and is wonderfully cozy for all-day robe lounging (this is a judgment-free zone). It may feel like a splurge, but its quality is unmatched. Plus, Parachute offers a 60-day trial on all of their products, so you have nothing to lose.

    Best Budget: TowelSelections Women's Robe

    If you're looking for something a little more budget-friendly, you don’t have to settle for mediocre. The TowelSelections Turkish Cotton Robe is a great, affordable option. It will keep you warm in the colder months and dry all year long.

    This robe is made from 100 percent Turkish cotton and has a kimono-style collar, two front pockets, and a tie belt. The lightweight terrycloth robe is machine washable and comes in extra small through extra large sizes.

    It’s also available in 11 bright colors, from pink and rose wine to olive green and Parisian blue. This is great if you’re tired of finding your stark white robe looking a little dingy after a few months of wear.

    The TowelSelections robe is a great post-shower choice. Reviewers say it’s super absorbent and dries incredibly fast. Many do note that it runs a bit large, so pay attention to the measurements before you order.

    Getting home after a long day of work and tossing on a comfy robe is the best feeling. Barefoot Dreams' CozyChic Robe was clearly made with those evenings in mind.

    This cushy robe is made from “CozyChic,” an easy-to-care-for microfiber that is perfect for curling up around the house. It comes in four sizes and 12 muted colors, most with a casual heathered look.

    The machine-washable fabric won’t pill or shrink in the wash. Though we recommend it for dry lounging more than wet, it dries fairly quickly.

    Owners love how plush the Barefoot Dreams robe is, admitting they’ll keep it on hour after hour—because it’s just that comfortable.

What to Look for in a Robe

Style How and when you'll wear your robe will largely determine the style you want. If you just wear it for a few short minutes between showering and getting dressed, looks may not be an important factor for you. However, if you’re someone who spends every possible waking moment in theirs, then you may want to seek out some of the more stylish options. 

Comfort Robes should be comfortable first and foremost. Consider the weight of the material as well as the season in which you’ll be wearing it. Some of the thick, plush versions may be too warm for summer weather, and some light, airy robes may not be cozy enough for winter. In some cases, you may want more than one robe to suit various seasons, or you may want to select a mid-weight version that can accommodate any season.

Fit While robes don’t necessarily have to fit like a glove, you don’t want one that's too tight or one that’s so long you trip over it. If average sizes don’t suit you, there are brands that feature tall, plus, and petite sizes you may want to consider.
