15 Best Robes for Every Style and Budget
Snuggle up in one of these top-rated wraps.
A comfy robe is the ultimate little luxury to treat yourself or gift to someone else. It’s a lifesaver in the winter for those who always run cold, a good self-care ritual on days when you feel blue and the best way to get that five-star hotel and spa vibe at home. But there are so many choices for robe materials and prices range from under $30 to over $300! We’ve bundled the perfect handy shopping guide for robes based on style, price and durability. After all, once you find that perfect robe, you’ll want it to last in the wash for years to come. Check out our top picks below and find your new favorite robe.
What to Look for When Buying a Robe
Like bath towels and linens, there are tons of materials to choose from when shopping for a robe. To narrow your search, think about whether you run hot or cold. Robes made with plush fleece, sherpa or flannel cotton will make you feel perfectly toasty, whereas a robe made with linen or breathable jersey cotton is best for summer. Textures are important, too. Terry cloth and Turkish cotton robes are great for post-shower or post-pool since they're basically towels with sleeves. For the ultimate buttery soft texture, a gauzy muslin robe feels like being swaddled in a baby blanket. Silk and satin robes have become popular with wedding party and bachelorette party photos, but the two fabrics are not interchangeable and not always machine washable.
Best Waffle Robe
Fans love Brooklinen's Waffle Robe just as much as the brand's top-rated waffle towels. It's the perfect weight and texture for a year-round robe, and there's just something about that waffle fabric that makes you feel extra cozy.
Best Linen Robe
Like linen sheets, a linen robe is a timeless luxury, but Parachute has a surprisingly affordable (well, for linen prices) robe under $100. We love the trendy neutral hues in bone and clay.
Best Plush Robe
If you're always cold, look no further than Brooklinen's Super-Plush Robe. It's cozy, warm and perfect for winter.
Best Silk Robe
A silk robe is sensuous, comforting and extremely expensive. Why the price? Ethical, quality silk takes time and is more expensive to produce compared to cotton or synthetics such as satin, but, like a silk pillowcase or sheets, if you take care of your silk robe, it will last for years. With Lunya's Washable Silk Robe, there's no need for handwashing! The patented silk fabric is machine washable, though we still recommend the most delicate cycle and hang drying.
Best Muslin Cotton Robe
Muslin, or cotton gauze, is synonymous with baby swaddle blankets. These days, home designers are incorporating the super-super-soft fabric into throws and linens, too, and Parachute's Cloud Cotton Robe is like a swaddle blanket for adults.
Best Jersey Cotton Robe
Robes aren't just for winter. You can stay cozy in the warmer months with a breathable fabric such as jersey cotton. Coyuchi's Organic Cotton Robe has quite the cult following with glowing five-star reviews.
Best Flannel Robe
A flannel robe is the ultimate Christmas day robe, and nobody does flannel robes like L.L.Bean. The brand's Classic Flannel Cotton Robe comes in multiple colors and is even available in tall and petite. Plus, you can add a monogram for just $8.
Best Puffy Robe
If you're the type of person who walks around the house wrapped in a blanket like a burrito, say hello to Soma's Puffy Robe. Wearing this robe is basically like staying in bed under the covers, but with sleeves.
Best Weighted Robe
Yes, you read that right. There are weighted robes just like weighted blankets! The Gravity Weight Robe features three-pound weights in the collar and shawl for light pressure while lounging.
Best Sherpa Robe
If you're looking for a good robe to gift, you can't go wrong with sherpa. This hooded robe from Pottery Barn is so, so fluffy, and the price is right, too.
Best Terry Cloth Robe
Like a classic towel, a terry cloth robe is perfect for bundling up right after a bath or shower. Looped terry fabric is ultra-absorbent, and Snowe's Terry Robe has earned high praise from shoppers. We love, love, love the slate blue color.
Best Cooling Robe
If you run hot no matter the season, check out Soma's Cool Nights Robe. It's part of the brand's patented cooling sleepwear line, and after using it myself, this writer can attest that it totally works. The thin fabric also makes this robe travel-friendly as it's easy to roll up and squeeze into a suitcase.
Best Robe for Kids
The Company Store has adorable hooded towels for kiddos, and the line of robes is just as cute with fun, whimsical colors and monogram options. We love the Classic Plush Hooded Robe that's under $60.
Best Monogrammed Robe
Mark & Graham is the monogram go-to on the internet, and they have tons of options for monogramming robes. What's great about the website is that you can preview and play around with different colors and letter styles before you click order.
Best Wedding Party Robe
Personalized robes are a great wedding party gift, and they've become quite popular for staging day-of wedding photos and bachelorette party photos. Birdy Grey, the affordable bridesmaid dress shop, now has a line of wedding robes, and they're just as affordable as their dresses. You can snag a satin robe in tons of different colors for just $29. The robes come in both a ruffle or kimono style, and you can also add embroidery on the back for just six bucks!
