Top 10 Best Bath Robes of 2018

Bath Robes

Bath robes may be one of the most underrated accessories in existence. While they appear simple and like an added luxury, having your ideal bath robe waiting for you at the end of a long day can transform your experience into one of sheer comfort. Here are the 10 best bath robes of 2018. 

Why Do You Want a Bathrobe?

Maybe that seems like a redundant question, but just take a moment to think. There are actually many purposes for which you may want a bathrobe.

One of the most common uses of bathrobes is for after bathing. There are many bathrobes which are specifically designed to be work immediately after you finish your shower or bath. This means that these bathrobes absorb water well and are close in texture to shower-towels.

Not all people put on their bathrobes immediately after bathing, however. There is a whole other population who see their bathrobes as a source of comfort. In this case, a bathrobe could be worn at any point during the day, like pajamas or house-clothes.

Perhaps bathrobes only come to mind for you when the weather gets cold. There are many bathrobes designed with thick material that serve the purpose of providing extra warmth.

Of course, you could also use your bathrobe for multiple purposes and at multiple points during your day. The idea is to narrow down your thinking about bathrobes just enough to help you decide which type you will get the most use out of.

People do not spend much time thinking about it and they tend to use a bath robe for many years before thinking about getting a new one.

Bathrobe Fabrics

After you think about why you want a bathrobe and what purpose you feel it will serve in your life, you want to start considering what fabric you’d like your bathrobe to be made of. The choice is not as simple as it seems because there are bathrobes made from many types of fabric and combinations of fabrics.

Something to keep in mind about the different fabrics that bathrobes can be made from is that they vary in price. There are affordably priced fabrics and fabrics that will be more of a splurge or luxury investment.

Knowing some information about different fabrics and the qualities they bring to bathrobes will help you figure out what type of bathrobe is best for you. Some of the most common fabrics and fabric combinations used to make bathrobes are:

  • Waffle-weaved Cotton: You will recognize waffle-weaved cotton robes by their usually checkered pattern. These robes are 100% cotton and will shrink easily so it is best to search for a preshrunk design. If you have stayed at a hotel, then there is a good chance you have felt this type of robe. They are very absorbent, pretty lightweight, and warm enough for Fall weather.
  • Cotton-Terry: These bathrobes are some of the most commonly used. Their texture is quite soft, making them comfortable for lounging. While they do absorb water well, they become heavy when wet and take time to dry so they are not the best option for use immediately after bathing. Remember, these contain cotton so search for preshrunk robes for an accurate fit.
  • Microfiber: Made from a blend of polyester, a man-made fabric, microfiber robes will not shrink when you wash them. These robes are very absorbent, can be used throughout different seasons, and always feel breathable. They are very popular and are used in  hotels and spas, as well as being marketed for home use.
  • Cotton Velour: Velour has a texture that is similar to velvet, that when combined with cotton, turns into a very soft and comfortable bathrobe. When considering this type of bathrobe, you want to find one that has a high content of cotton. Cotton velour robes feel heavier than other robes and are good for keeping you warm in colder temperatures.
  • Silk or Satin: Silk or satin bathrobes are most frequently chosen because of their pleasing aesthetic. These are not bathrobes that you want to put on as you step out of your bath or shower, as they are not very absorbent, at all. They are very smooth, lightweight and ideal for use in warmer weather.
  • Cashmere: If you have worn anything made of cashmere, then you know that it is a fabric in a group of its own. Cashmere bathrobes are soft and smooth at the same time, while keeping you warm without weighing you down. They are not meant for absorbing water after bathing, but for relaxing in comfort. Good quality cashmere is generally rather expensive, and a cashmere robe will need to be dry-cleaned, not machine-washed.
  • Chenille: Gaining popularity with the addition of micro-chenille, chenille robes are lightweight and not the best pick for water absorption. When you’re searching for a chenille robe, be sure to touch each one as the high-end and low-end designs look exactly the same, while varying in soft texture.

Practical Features

All bathrobes are made differently so you want to think about a few small, but practical details about your ideal bathrobe before beginning your search:

  • Pockets: Think about whether you would like your bathrobe to have pockets and if so, what size pockets would work best for you?
  • Collar: Do you want to have a foldable collar on your bathrobe for comfort and/or aesthetic?
  • Length: How short or long do you want your bathrobe to be?
  • Hood: Would you like the option of wearing a hood for extra warmth from your bathrobe?
  • Belt: Does your bathrobe have a belt to securely close it and how long is that belt?

Bathrobes come long and short, thin and fluffy thick. They are made of cotton, polyester or fine Turkish cottons. Our list includes several models made of cotton and polyester ones. Also we selected a few short models that are more suitable for those of you who do not need a warm bathrobe.
