Decompressing after a long hard day is never simple, and during the holiday season, it's even more difficult. Still, one foolproof method to eliminate said stress is by having one of the best bathrobes on hand. 

The best bathrobes are in a league of their own, providing comfort and warmth, and of course, some much-needed TLC. 

By slipping into a silk style, you can instantly create a spa-like experience, with no travel required, compared to heavier materials such as fleece which is as warm and inviting as a weighted blanket (and can be utilized long after leaving your bed). 

Yes, having one of the best bathrobes on hand is critical, but finding them is no easy task. There are tons of models on the markets, and determining which works best for you is challenging – which is where we come in. 

Afterwards, and if you are redecorating your entire bathroom, peruse our bathroom ideas piece for all of the design inspiration you need.

What to consider when buying a luxury bathrobe?

When it comes to finding one of the best bathrobes, or at least the one that is proper for you, aside from boiling down to personal preference, it's critical to also tune into the material. 

Some bathrobes are constructed with the intent to keep yourself dry, so you'll want to locate absorbent materials. In this case, we'd recommend shying away from silks, flannels, or any heavy material as those will stain the robe or leave it feeling "damp." It's best to gravitate toward lighter styles such as cotton construction to get the job done. 

How should your bathrobe fit?

A good rule of thumb when shopping for one of the best bathrobes is to size up from your original size. While your regular size will most likely fit you perfectly, for lounging and comfort purposes, you'll want something relaxed and oversized without being too big.
