If you're not born into a very specific blood line or marry into one, buying a bathrobe is the closest thing you can do to feel like royalty. Whether it's stepping out of a hot shower or cozying up on the couch in front of the latest episode of The Crown, a bathrobe takes it to the next level. Sure, you may not have any subjects to lord over (aside from your cat). But that doesn't mean you don't deserve something nice. The way we see it, a bathrobe is self care. The market for this most plush of home garb is fraught with options. So we decided to distill it down to the only ones worth considering. Here they are, your majesty.
Schiesser Towelling Bath Robe
Best Overall Bathrobe
Schiesser's been around since 1875, so they know a few things about making a quality garment. Its Towelling Bath Robe is made with an all-cotton French terry material that's plush, breathable and absorbent. The fit is generous and easy to slip on, but unlike many hooded options, features a hood that's not too floppy.
Best Upgrade Bathrobe
Another way to look at a robe is to see it as a blanket cut into the shape of a human body. That's exactly what Offhours' Homecoat is: Your comfiest duvet, swaddling you in thick, quilted warmth.
David Archy Soft Fleece Plush Robe
Best Affordable Bathrobe
David Archy's luscious robe is an Amazon best-seller for a reason. The polyester velveteen fleece is more plush than any baby sheep could ever hope to be and it comes with all the trappings you'd expect of a good bathrobe — roomy pockets, a belt and even a hood.
