High-quality bathrobes can easily become your favorite wardrobe items. They will wrap you in luxury and warmth, helping you start your day off on the right foot or end it in the right mood. The right bathrobes, made from high-quality materials will last you for years.
You should learn the difference between Egyptian and Turkish cotton. Both of these materials are high-quality and durable, but each lends a slightly different quality to the bathrobes. Bathrobes made from Turkish cotton will have a slight natural sheen to them and will require a few washes to reach their optimum softness. Bathrobes made from Egyptian cotton will feel soft right out of the package.
Bathrobes come in a variety of different fabrics and weaves. Some of the most common options are cotton waffle-knits, jersey knits and synthetic microlux. The last one is a very fine fleece fabric. If you are looking for bathrobes that can be put on in the evening, you should consider silk or satin. However, it is best to choose bathrobes, according to your climate. Thinking of bathrobes, probably the first image you see in your head, is an ultra plush, Turkish cotton bathrobe, but it will not be appropriate for a hot and humid area. Thinner bathrobes, like the ones made from cotton jersey or waffle-knit fabric are great for warmer climates.
If you buy bathrobes, using unisex sizing, make sure they are the length you want. Bathrobes in unisex sizes will definitely fit perfectly around you, but they are usually cut for people with average height. So check the length of the unisex bathrobe, before you decide to buy it. If you are a woman, the good thing is that you can get bathrobes with the length you like. Men’s bathrobes usually don’t have length options, while women’s bathrobes can fall anywhere from mid-thigh to the ankles.
There’s nothing like a soft, warm bathrobe in the chilly winter mornings or evenings. Besides, bathrobes are a better choice to appear before an overnight guest, than PJs, before you get dressed. Don’t forget to get some slippers to go with your bathrobes.
