There is nothing like the feel of a luxurious bathrobe on your freshly washed skin, for the comfort, the warmth, and the ability to make you feel as cool as an off-duty movie star or as powerful as boxing champ on match day. No matter how you see yourself when you wear one, it is and will always remain unrivaled to an affordable version. No shade to affordable options because they are great and have their uses, but once you allow yourself to slip into a luxury bathrobe, it’s hard to go back.

If you thought robes were reserved for spa days, sick patients, and the late Hugh Hefner, we’d urge you to reconsider because they are a great investment for everyday use with their absorbent, easy to wash, and relaxing properties. Also, as soon as you put one on you’ll feel as though you are being welcomed into a cozy cocoon that you can transport wherever and whenever, so if you are planning any trips away or visiting your in-laws, this is a must.

These days, brands make a variety of luxury bathrobes that are suitable for everyone and as gifting season is upon us, we will be showcasing the best unisex luxury robes because if you can’t be self-indulgent now, then when can you? And for all of you looking for the best gifts for him and the best gifts for her for the holiday season, you can’t ever go wrong with a luxury bathrobe.

  

The Different Styles of Bathrobes

Bathrobes can run from floor-sweeping to ending a bit below the butt. Most are belted, all have at least two pockets. More formal versions have a breast pocket. To get even more specific, we’ve outlined a handful of standard styles you may come across:

  • Kimono: Inspired by the traditional Japanese robes, this style has wide sleeves, a collarless neckline, and a belt. Fabrics range from polyester to thick terry.
  • Classic: Oversized robes with wide cuffs, the classic bathrobe also has a shawl collar, patch pockets, and is belted. They can be found in every type of fabric including flannel, cotton, and lined wool.
  • Spa robes: Cut like a classic bathrobe, these robes are made for hanging out awkwardly before a massage. They come in lightweight fabrications that range from modal, bamboo, broadcloth, seersucker, Egyptian cotton, or lightweight cotton.
  • Hooded robe: Made from either terrycloth or lightweight material, they provide style and an easy way to dry wet hair. Hoods can be incorporated into any bathrobe style.
  • Dressing Gown: The bathrobe’s stylish brother. They’re tailored, made from silk or weighty silk brocade, and are detailed with everything from piping and contrast lining to fine embroidery.

Department stores like Nordstrom and Macy’s always have a large selection of bathrobes. Today, you can also find the best bathrobes for sale on e-commerce sites like Amazon if you’re hunting for a specific type of bathrobe — like something eco-friendly or monogrammed bathrobes.
