    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.

It is sure to make every morning a little more special. Because of its delicate nature, this robe is hand-wash only.

    Keep in mind that satin robes are not the best post-shower wear. But, if you’re looking for a robe to lounge around in on those breezy summer days, the Natori is a luxurious choice.

    Natori is known for its stylish loungewear, and this jersey robe is no exception. Made from 65 percent modal and 35 percent polyester, this jersey is a great choice for summer months when a heavier robe is just too much.

    You will love the longer length the Shangri-La offers, creating a cozy cocoon effect. It comes in extra-small through XX-large and in eigh different colors, from a bright red to a casual navy. It's an ultra-soft robe that is lightweight but comfy enough to sleep in and it's great for travel.

    Amazon reviewers like this Natori robe because it’s flowy, soft and lightweight. It’s also a great choice for taller ladies who struggle to find jersey robes that run long enough.

    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.
