Name a better feeling than coming out from a long shower and throwing on a comfy bathrobe before heading to the couch for a Netflix binge. You can't, no matter how hard you try, because there is simply nothing better. We take our robes very seriously here at Marie Claire—some of us even own three or four different options, depending on the occasion and our moods—and we're always on the hunt to add a few more to our rotation. So, it's safe to say that consider ourselves experts in finding the best bathrobes for women, because we just love them so much ourselves.
But because not all bathrobes are created equal, we set out on a search to find the very best of the best that are currently on the market in 2023. From a few fuzzy sherpa options (one of which retails for less than $25!) to some of the best satin and silk robes that are sure to help you live out your fanciest hotel dreams, we spotlighted them all ahead. But don’t just take it from us. The bathrobes on this list have all been vetted by other, like-minded bathrobe superfans, and we included their rave reviews.
These bathrobes are about to convince you to ditch the bath towels and I've-had-these-eight-years oversize tees once and for all. We’ve even broken down the best robes by type, so you can skip ahead to find the one that’s right for you.
Best Overall Bathrobes
These bathrobes are the best of the best, based on their glowing reviews. If you're looking for a robe that has the perfect weight, dries you off in a snap, and is super soft, keep reading to find your perfect match.
Nearly 2,500 reviews don't lie: This robe from homeware brand Parachute is simply one of the best. "This robe is pure luxury! It is the most perfect accompaniment to my self-care spa nights at home," said one user. "I ordered a size up and I’m so glad I did...after climbing out of a long, hot bath I feel like I am wrapping myself in a cozy cocoon."
Not only do I own a robe from Weezie and adore it, but reviewers agree that this is the perfect in-between robe: not too thick and not too light. "The fit is perfect," wrote one user. "I love the sleeve with a button for cuffing. The detail I like best is that the sash is attached at the back, no loops. It's so soft and just perfect!"
Best Plush Robes
When it comes to bathrobes, the softer and plushier, the better—and these options fit the bill. One of them is from celebrity-adored brand Barefoot Dreams, and the other is wildly affordable at only $23. What's not to love?
The Kardashians love this robe, and so do tons of other buyers who gave it glowing reviews. "I have had many robes where they thin out after a month of washing," said one. "This robe is so soft and warm. It is great for winter time. Worth the investment in my opinion."
With over 19,000 five-star reviews, this pick is the best on Amazon. "I love everything about this robe," said one reviewer. "Soft and fluffy with pockets and a hood."
Best Terrycloth Robes
Terrycloth robes make it possible to swap out your towels entirely, so they're worth the investment. Still, these are cute enough to wear well after you step out of the shower.
This robe comes in three pastel hues (including this pretty blue shade) and is praised for being the perfect thing to lounge around the house in. "Great all around robe to get ready in, take the dog out at night, make breakfast in the morning and sip coffee in on lazy weekend," said one reviewer. Sounds good to us!
If you want a bathrobe that will make the rest of your towels obsolete in your bathroom, try this one from Brooklinen. As one five-star reviewer put it, this robe is "incredible at soaking up water yet staying dry at the same time. Couldn’t live without it. I was looking for the perfect bathrobe for quite some time and I can confidently say I found it."
Best Waffle Robes
If you prefer a robe that feels like air on your skin, try one made from a waffled material. For ultimate spa energy, pair your waffle robe with coordinating slippers.
Shoppers love how lightweight this Quince waffle robe is. One five-star reviewer even called the texture "the perfect waffle." They went even further than that, though, noting that it has "the perfect length, the perfect weight, the perfect collar."
I own this robe and can attest to how lightweight it feels. Despite the fact that it feels like I've got nothing on, it dries me off in minutes and doesn't make me feel too hot after a piping-hot shower. And I'm not alone: One reviewer noted that the robe is "breathable and soft, perfect for that cute Sunday morning breakfast vibe at home."
Best Linen Robes
Summer is coming, so it's time to stock up on some lightweight layers (stock up on some summer pajamas while you're at it). Linen robes are ideal for lounging around and cooling off after a steaming hot shower in the warmer months.
Affordable and effortlessly chic, this robe from H&M is a best-seller for a reason. One user who gave it a five-star review on the site said that it "feels so expensive" despite costing $50.
This top-rated robe has been described as "breathable" and "very flattering" by five-star reviewers, so it's guaranteed to be a timeless classic in your bathroom for years to come.
Best Silk and Satin Robes
For a touch of something special in your post-shower routine, try on a silk robe for size. Are they going to dry you off? Not quite. But don't let that deter you from slipping into one as you finish out your skincare routine.
It's not often that a piece of clothing gets dubbed "pure functional luxury," but this robe from Lunya fits the bill. "The cuffed sleeves make it so easy to be a mom early in the morning, and yet the silk feels so luxe," continued the reviewer. "Great on its own but feels extra wonderful layered with one of the silk tee sets!"
