2. Natori Shangri-La Robe

This robe’s modal and polyester blend fabric is described as “blissfully soft,” which definitely caught our attention. But the lace trim on the sleeves and mid-length style is what really sold us. Psst, there’re a matching nightgown, if you want to take your PJs to the next level.

4. L.L. Bean Women’s Ultrasoft Sweatshirt Robe

Let’s be honest, having to re-tie your robe as you go about your morning gets old, fast. So this zip-up alternative from L.L. Bean is pretty genius. The 95 percent cotton material is smooth on the outside, but softly looped to be extra soft on the inside. Plus, the front pouch is perfect to throw your phone in...or to keep your hands cozy while you’re lounging on the couch.

Washable silk sounds too good to be true, right? Well, in this case it’s not. According to Lunya, you can machine wash this 100 percent silk robe (as long as you use the cold setting) and lay it flat to dry. Unlike most silk robes, it has pockets and an interior tie to ensure that everything stays in place, because we all know silk can get slippery.

Eberjey is known for its expensive—but worth it—pajama sets. Naturally, this guy is no different. “I have always loved how pretty and comfortable this robe is.

In fact, she loves it so much that she owns it in both pink and white.

18. Hanky Panky Getting Ready Printed Satin Robe

With summer on its way, we have a feeling we won’t be craving a warm, fluffy bathrobe in a few months’ time. That’s why come May or June, PureWow editor Roberta Fiorito reaches for this Hanky Panky style. “The satin waist tie is thick and long enough to actually hold the robe closed—it never comes undone. And the sleeves are the perfect length and don’t get in the way when I’m putting on makeup or doing my hair,” she explains.

Buy It ($140)

19. Naadam Summer Silk Cashmere Robe

Find something more appealing than a cashmere robe; we’ll wait. “She’s lightweight but she’s cozy, she’s supersoft and she has that Goldilocks length—not too long, not too short.
