This Is the 2-Product Combo That Gives Me 5-Minute No-Makeup Makeup Every Morning

Keep it simple.

Warmth, coziness, comfort—these are things that a bathrobe can offer, whether you’re wearing it around the house or after a shower. With that said, not all bathrobes will swaddle you in softness or sop up moisture without weighing on you like a wet blanket. To find the best bathrobes, I consulted Katie Elks, designer director at Brooklinen for tips on choosing your ideal option.

Generally speaking, what you want is something made from materials like long-staple cotton fibers, or if you’re on a budget, microfiber or polyester that’s made to be just as soft and smooth as cotton. In selecting your ideal bathrobe, style also comes into play—and fortunately, there are many options you can choose from, ranging from plush terry cloth to lightweight options with a waffle weave, in solid hues and zany prints.

Whatever your choice, you’ll find a wide variety of options below—one of which is sure to suit your preferences and help you achieve peak coziness.

Best bathrobes, at a glance

What to look for when shopping for a bathrobe

Material

When shopping for a bathrobe, you can choose from several materials. Many bathrobes are made from terry cloth, a thick material that is highly absorbent. It is commonly made from cotton, but it can also be made from polyester, silk, linen, or a blend of materials. Waffle-weave bathrobes are known to be absorbent and quick-drying, though they are usually coarser than terry cloth, and similarly they can be made from a variety of materials. However, according to Elks: “Shoppers should look for robes made with long-staple cotton because it creates an extra soft, durable, and absorbent robe.” Long-staple cotton fibers can include anything from Turkish to Egyptian cotton or pima cotton. Conversely, she recommends avoiding “poor, short-staple cotton as the multi-ply yarns will result in a coarse, rough-feeling fabric.

Additionally, “you can also look for fabric safety certifications such as Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, which ensures your products are free of harmful chemicals,” says Elks. If you want a bathrobe made from organic materials, look for one with a certification from the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). For a budget-friendly option that is as soft and smooth as cotton, consider a bathrobe made from microfiber or polyester, though note that synthetic fibers or blends aren’t as breathable as natural fibers like cotton.

Style

Most bathrobes are marked by a roomy silhouette to provide comfort and ease of movement, and often a belt tie and pockets for added functionality. While most bathrobes will fall somewhere around the knees, you’ll also find options with shorter hemlines or longer ones that hit the mid-calf—keeping in mind that your height and leg length will determine how long a bathrobe is on you. Bathrobes also come in a multitude of styles, from classic solid colors to patterns like stripes, checks, and polka dots. In any case, the style you choose comes down to your personal preference.
