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. 

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?

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.  

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.

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.

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.
