Best budget women's robes under $50

Amazon Essentials Lightweight Waffle Robe

Material: Cotton, polyester | Length: About 60 in. | Sizes: XS-7X | Style notes: Tie closure, waffle knit, 2 front pockets, runs large | Colors available: 15

You'll be hard-pressed to find a true waffle-weave, lightweight robe that's as affordable as this one, from Amazon's Essentials clothing line.

Made of a blend of cotton and polyester, the robe is also super soft and light enough to wear in the summer, reviewers say. And it's available in a whopping 15 colors and sizes from XS all the way up to 7X. And while it won't be as absorbent as a bath towel or a classic plush robe, users report that it feels great post-shower while your skin is still damp.

"This robe has no business being comfy and as nice as it is for the price. I love it," adds one five-star reviewer.

Victoria's Secret Plush Long Robe

Material: Fleece | Length: 48 in. | Sizes: XS-XXL | Style notes: Loose fit, tie waist, shawl collar, front pockets | Colors available: 4

Speaking of plush, if the mom in your life (or you) prefer a more traditional, plush bathrobe for that hotel spa feel, this long version from Victoria's Secret is for you. That's because this relaxed-fit robe is made from very cozy fleece and features a shawl collar, deep pockets and a tie waist, which all add up to a luxurious vibe — and now it's over half off, too.

The brand has a short version of this comfy robe available and on sale, as well.

Coyuchi Solstice Organic Short Robe

Material: Organic cotton | Length: 35-38 in. | Sizes: XS-L (0-14) | Style notes: Soft jersey knit, relaxed fit, quarter-length box sleeves, front tie waist, interior self-tie | Colors available: 3

Luxury bedding brand Coyuchi offers this short robe made from ultra-soft, relaxed-feel premium organic cotton. It was already reasonable priced considering its quality, but it's now 50% off for the brand's Spring Savings event (but it's for a limited time, so act fast).

In addition to the 100 percent cotton fabric woven into soft jersey knit, Coyuchi says that it repeatedly brushed the material to bring out a "beautifully peached finish." The robe also features a relaxed fit and three-quarter-length sleeves, so you won't need to worry about them getting wet when washing your face, for instance.

And for those traveling moms who still want a cozy experience, this lightweight robe is for you! "I'll be spending two weeks in a small cabin with a friend and wanted something I could [throw] on after showering, etc. This robe is perfect — packable but the material is still substantial, not clingy or flimsy, and it feels absorbent and soft," notes one reviewer.

VINTATRE Kimono Robe

Material: Rayon, spandex | Length: About 55 to 60 in. | Sizes: S-2X | Style notes: Front tie sash, two front pockets, 3/4 sleeves, inside tie closure | Colors available: 42

Calling all fashionista moms! Vintatre's kimono robe is so chic that it can almost double as a dress. The stylish design comes in more than 30 colors and patterns ranging from florals and animal prints to solids. It also offers great coverage with its three-quarter length sleeves and mid-calf length. It's not surprising that it's racked up 16,000-plus verified five-star global ratings so far.

One reviewer described this robe as “so soft” and having a “silk-like feel.” They highlighted that the belt is attached to the robe so that it doesn’t get twisted or lost.

Best lightweight robes for women

U2SKIIN Cotton Robe

Material: Polyester, cotton | Length: 39-40 in. | Sizes: S-2X | Style notes: Front tie, front pockets, 3/4 sleeves | Colors available: 14

Over 7,000 verified Amazon shoppers have bestowed a five-star rating on this bestselling robe, and it's easy to see why they adore it so much. Between the lightweight, soft cotton-polyester material, the three-quarter sleeves and the double pockets (not to mention the affordable price), there's a whole lot to love.

One enthused customer wrote, "This robe is my swan song. My peak. I feel like a fancy housewife now. I've literally worn it everyday since it arrived. Obsessed."

Quince Organic Bamboo Jersey Robe

Material: Bamboo viscose, spandex | Length: 46-48 | Sizes: S-L | Style notes: Kimono collar, relaxed fit, 2 hidden pockets, front tie sash | Colors available: 3

We first fell in love with Quince's cashmere sweater (one of its bestsellers to this day); it shows the brand's commitment to quality, sustainability and affordability. Quince brings that same quality to this lavish jersey robe — sans the hefty price tag.

Made mostly from viscose derived from bamboo, this silky robe is naturally moisture-wicking, antibacterial and cooling, making it suitable for various seasons and needs, whether that's drying after the shower or lounging at home. Best of all, while comparable robes likely cost over $100, this one is just under $50.

Soma Intimates Cool Nights Short Robe

Material: Rayon, spandex | Length: 38 in. | Sizes: XS-XXL | Style notes: Lightweight fabric, long fitted sleeves, pockets, detachable belt | Colors available: 3

For the mom that loves a robe but lives somewhere warm or wants something breathable, this long-sleeved robe is lightweight enough to sleep in while still being stylish, thanks to three unique, gorgeous patterns. It has a relaxed fit and is made of buttery-soft rayon fibers.

“Love the short robe, just the right length. So soft and comfortable, light and perfect for summer,” one reviewer wrote. They added that the length and fit of the sleeves is ideal for not getting in the way while doing dishes or making coffee.

Best soft and cozy women's robes

Stars Above Beautifully Soft Robe

Material: Modal, spandex | Length: TK | Sizes: XS-XXL | Style notes: Front tie, inside tie closure, long sleeves, relaxed fit, side pockets | Colors available: 3

If you want a lighter robe that's just as comfortable as a plush one, this lightweight one from Target is perfect for you. Made from 95 percent breathable modal, the robe has a classic style that's both chic and cozy, with long, wide sleeves, contrast piping, and a deep V-neck.

"Purchased to wear after birth at the hospital with my son, works amazing for easy access while breastfeeding and so so soft. Love wearing it lounging around the house now!" one reviewer wrote.

Old Navy Oversized Fleece Button-Down Cardigan Robe

Material: Rayon-polyester blend fleece | Length: 20.5-22.5 in. (petite to regular) | Sizes: XS-4X | Style notes: Oversized fit, seam through back, drop shoulders, long sleeves, front pockets, banded V-neck | Colors available: 5

For the mom who equally loves cocooning in a cardigan and a robe, why not gift them both?

This rayon-blend fleece cardigan robe from Old Navy boasts both the slouchiness and drop sleeves we love in a cardigan and the comfort, stretch and plushness of a robe. It also has two front pockets and a flattering V-neck with a banded detail.

Take it from this Old Navy reviewer: "Such a comfortable top. Loose, soft, and not so heavy that you get hot while sleeping or lounging. I bought two more!"

Under the Canopy Organic Robe

Material: Organic cotton | Length: 46-50 in. | Sizes: XS-XXL | Style notes: Relaxed slim fit, V-neck, front pockets, interior tie, detachable self-tie belt | Colors available: 5 (only Charcoal is discounted)

Whether you’re WFH or spending a cozy night in, this luxe robe from Under the Canopy is ideal for rest and relaxation. It’s made 100 percent breathable cotton fabric that's finely ribbed, oh-so-soft and "moves with you," the brand says.

“This robe is so soft and comfortable, and [I] even receive compliments on the way I look in it. The length and thickness are perfect for all seasons, and it washes very nicely. I’m so grateful and I love wearing it!” a reviewer wrote.

Just a small note from some users: This tends to shrink in dryer, so size up if you're between sizes or like a looser fit.

Best classic bathrobes for women

Stars Above Cozy Robe

Material: Polyester | Length: 36.25-38.25 in. | Sizes: XS-2X | Style notes: Front tie, front pockets, notched V-neck collar | Colors available: 2

You can't go wrong with a classic white plush robe. This affordable option also comes in gray and has a 4.3-star average rating and 81 percent of happy Target customers say they "would recommend" it. We love its dynamic ribbed texture and the soft velour material.

"This is the coziest robe I have ever purchased!” raved one five-star reviewer. They added that it’s “incredibly soft” and not overly warm — even when worn during the summer months.

Just Love Velour Textured Robe

Material: Polyester | Length: 39-41 in. | Sizes: XS-2X | Style notes: Chevron pattern/texture, 2 side pockets | Colors available: 13

A classic knee-length robe is a wardrobe essential, and this one comes in a nice range of sizes (eight, to be exact) and more than a dozen colors. This chevron-textured robe is made from plush, velvet-liked velour, so you can feel cozy and warm whether you're wearing it over your pajamas or favorite sweats. It's luxury for less, basically!

One reviewer noted that this robe is “very soft and snuggly,” “well made” and exceeded their expectations.

FluffCo Hotel Robe

Material: Microfiber, coral fleece | Length: 44-48in. | Sizes: S-XL | Style notes: Front tie, front pockets, shawl collar, gray piping | Colors available: 1

Is there anything more comfortable than a plush hotel robe? This one by FluffCo feels like one you’d find at a five-star boutique hotel, with its plush interior lining and microfiber cotton exterior. It's also got oversized exterior pockets and a luxe-looking gray piping. The difference is that, unlike an actual hotel robe that will likely cost you in the hundreds, this one is available for $99. Bonus? For Mother's Day, you'll get an additional 20% off sitewide!

Shop TODAY associate editor Fran Sales has long been a fan of this decadent pick. "I immediately feel like I'm at a hotel spa when I put this on," she says. "It checks all my boxes: soft, slightly oversized, luxurious and calming (the last one could just be me)."

Best printed robes for women

ThirdLove WonderKnit Mid-Length Robe

Material: WonderKnit™ (cotton/modal/spandex blend), lace | Length: Not listed (mid-thigh) | Sizes: XS-3X | Style notes: Kimono style, drapey fit, 3/4-length sleeves, lace trim detail, interior tie, removable waist tie | Colors available: 1

You've likely heard of ThirdLove for their stellar bras (understandably), but did you know the brand makes quality robes, too? Take a gander at this floral-patterned, lace-detailed pick, made from a proprietary WonderKnit fabric blend: "a deliciously drapey, undeniably comfortable cotton jersey blend that gets softer with every wash," according to the brand. And not only is it stylish comfy — its lightweight fabric makes it great for travel, too.

"Love my new WonderKnit robe! It’s so soft and lightweight. It has a stretch to it, which makes it so comfortable. The sleeves have a nice touch of lace, and there are two nice-size pockets. It’s a great robe!" raves one ThirdLove reviewer.

Soma Cool Nights Kimono Robe

Material: Rayon, spandex | Length: 38 in. | Sizes: S-XXL | Style notes: Kimono style, 3/4-length sleeves, mid-length, side pockets | Colors available: 4

Similar to ThirdLove's offering, this mid-length Kimono style robe from intimates brand Soma comes in gorgeous, colorful patterns — and you'll have four different options to choose from to fit your Mom's style.

It's also made mostly from lightweight rayon, which the brand says keeps the fabric from sticking to your body — so your giftee will be able to be comfortable and cool in addition to chic.

One reviewer says, "It fits great and is perfect for those spring mornings when it’s a little chilly when you get out of bed!"

Best waffle robes for women

Brooklinen Waffle Robe

Material: Turkish cotton| Length: 46-50 in. | Sizes: XS-XL | Style notes: Adjustable front tie, pockets, adjustable cuffs, wide sleeves | Colors available: 4

A stylish alternative to lounging in a towel post-shower (or after a bubble bath), this 100 percent Turkish cotton waffle robe is a worthy splurge. It’s lightweight, fast-drying, absorbent and has a unique weave texture that gives it a luxe look and feel. For the best fit, they recommend sizing up and washing it before using it.

One reviewer, who says they've had this robe for more than a year, wrote, “I love this robe! I use it every day when I get out of the shower. I lightly towel off and throw this on, it dries without sticking to me and doesn't feel wet.”

Coyuchi Waffle Robe

Material: Turkish cotton | Length: 47-52 in. | Sizes: XS-XL | Style notes: Double belt loops, pre-tumbled material, streamlined fit, front patch pockets | Colors available: 5

Coyuchi once again follows through when it comes to quality with this breathable waffle robe that just oozes "high-end spa." That's probably because the fabric is made from 100 percent organic Turkish cotton, and it's pre-tumbled for ultimate softness. Plus, every time you wash it, it gets that much softer.

One reviewer reports, "I searched high and low for a bath robe that wasn’t too thick and heavy yet still absorbent. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. It didn’t shrink in the dryer which is a plus because many do."

As if all the above wasn't enough, a discount of 25% off all robes is automatically applied!

Best hooded robes for women

NY Threads Hooded Fleece Bathrobe

Material: Polyester | Length: 49-51 in. | Sizes: S-XL | Style notes: Front tie, from pockets, shawl and hood collar | Colors available: 17

Currently Amazon's No. 1 bestselling women's robe, this plush number is the gold standard when it comes to women's bathrobes. More than 28,000 verified Amazon reviewers have given the robe a perfect five-star rating for its soft, fluffy nature, rich colors and overall roominess.

“For the price and based on some of the reviews, I was fully expecting to have to return this robe. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit. ... I washed and dried it after trying on and didn’t have any issues with shedding or shrinking,” one reviewer wrote.

Alexander Del Rossa Women's Classic Plush Hooded Robe

Material: Polyester, velour | Length: 45-49 in. | Sizes: XS-XL | Style notes: Oversized fit, 2 front patch pockets, front tie, fleece-lined hood, front tie, interior tie | Colors available: 10

For a hooded option with a little more freedom of movement but just as much plushness, go for this Alexander del Rossa pic. Made from super soft and cozy velour and featuring a fleece-lined hood, this pick doesn't skimp on comfort, but the knee-length cut gives you a little more flexibility. Best part? It's now under $25!

"I wear robes all of the time, especially working from home. This is so comfortable and warm. It fits perfectly and the fabric is very soft!" raved one Target reviewer.

Best personalized women's robes

Lands' End Cotton Terry Long Spa Bath Robe

Material: Cotton | Length: 47-49 in. | Sizes: XS-XL regular and petite | Style notes: Front tie, pockets, shawl collar, mid-calf length, turn-back cuffs, reinforced patch pockets | Colors available: 4

For those times when you're feeling a little extra chilly, this soft terry robe will keep you warm and cozy. The midcalf-length design is available in elegant colors like Deep Sea Navy, Wood Lily and White, and the material is nice and absorbent, making it ideal for when you just step out of the shower (or hot tub or bath, whatever you fancy!).

But our favorite little detail is that, for an extra $8, you can personalize the robe with either the text of your choice or one of 195 (!) cute embroidery designs. (Just note that this feature might add a few days to your delivery time.)

“I mostly use a bathrobe after showering and toweling off, when my drafty apartment really calls for a little warmth. The fabric is a nice thickness and it dries me off quickly,” one Lands' End reviewer said.

Crane & Canopy Gray Plush Cotton Bathrobe

Material: Long-staple Turkish cotton | Length: 46.5-52.5 in. | Sizes: S-L | Style notes: Long, shawl collar, turn-back cuffs, front tie, 2 front pockets, built-in hanging loop | Colors available: 3

The material is made high-quality long-staple Turkish cotton, making this number equal parts soft, lightweight and absorbent. Plus, for an extra $10, you can add a monogram with the text and color of your choice (limited to three characters).

What to look for in women's robes

  1. One of the first things to look for when shopping for a lounging or bath robe is the material. Fleece and flannel are particularly warm, while materials like microfiber and cotton provide comfort and warmth (without being too warm). Microfiber is especially lightweight and breathable compared with other materials.
  2. Planning on wearing your robe after a shower or a dip in the pool? Look at absorbency. Cotton sub-categories like waffle and terry cloth are super absorbent. They're also ideal for lounging in after a bubble bath, or whenever you want to feel like you’re at a fancy spa without leaving home.
  3. Pockets and front ties are common for robes, but if you don’t want to fuss around with keeping a tie in place, consider picking up a zippered option. When choosing a size, refer to the product’s size guide (if provided) and check out customer reviews for further insights. When in doubt, size up — no one wants a robe that is too small or tight.
  4. Lastly, take a peek at the care instructions to see how easy the robe is to clean. Most options on the market can take a tumble in the washer and dryer, but more delicate robes may need to be hand washed.
