A dressing gown or bathrobe might be one of those items you overlook, but it shouldn’t be. A daily essential that makes the mornings that much more enjoyable, they’re perfect for throwing on straight out of the shower before making your morning coffee, or lounging around the house in the evening as you wind down.
But with the huge variety available online, it can be difficult to find the right one. Towelling, waffle, silk; to hood or not to hood; the choices are endless. Yet fear not, as we’ve curated a list of the finest bathrobe brands that you can buy right now.
Casamera can lay claim to producing the most funded bathrobe in Kickstarter history. This might seem a bit of an unusual flex, until you try one on. And the brand has just announced the second iteration, which is said to improve on the original in every way.
Made from a seriously soft, textured honeycomb cotton, it’s uniquely breathable and quick-drying, offering extraordinary comfort. Meanwhile the generous design comes with a large hood, handy side pockets and an eyewear loop for securing your glasses in between reading the morning newspaper.
If you’re after the ultimate dressing gown, look no further.
David Gandy Wellwear
A classic design with its dark blue shade and white piping around the shawl collar and cuffs, this Wellwear gown is seriously soft and built to last.
Made from 100% cotton, it’s been treated with aloe vera extract, which is known for its anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties. Your skin will thank you later.
Marks & Spencer
An update on the traditional silk gown, this M&S design is made from a cotton tencel blend, which is both lightweight and drapes beautifully.
It comes with a distinctive geometric pattern for a vintage look that works well with the matching pyjamas or a pair of boxer shorts and a white tee.
The likes of Noel Coward would have surely approved.
Texture can make all the difference when it comes to gowns. This Bedfolk take is made from 100% cotton, but comes with a crumpled hand feel that has the appearance of the softest bed linen.
Finished in a light green shade, it’s ideal for wearing on a lazy weekend around the house. Wear it if you want to feel like you’ve got your duvet draped around you.
Charles Tyrwhitt has applied the tailoring prowess of its shirt range to this stylish gown. It’s got a textured, almost pique-like look to its cotton fabric, and the deep navy tone is about as classic as it gets.
The fit is also spot on, while the chunky belt and large patch pockets are expertly designed with the same attention to detail the brand gives its tailoring.
If you’ve been lucky enough to stay in a Soho House, you might have encountered a robe similar to this one. The brand’s ‘House Robe’, it’s made from a fluffy recycled polyester and comes with the Soho House logo on the chest.
The rich bordeaux red shade is a vibrant option, but it’s also available in classic white, grey, beige or navy.
