The 6 Best Terry Cloth Robes

There are few things that feel more luxurious than slipping on a big, fluffy robe — especially one that's made of soft terry cloth. Whether you're getting out of the shower or lounging around the house, it keeps you warm while also getting the relaxing vibes flowing. However, shopping for robes can be time-consuming. That's why I've done the research for you to nail down the best terry cloth robes on Amazon. When sifting through products, I looked for the following criteria:

  • Highly absorbent: Generally speaking, terry cloth weaves are fairly absorbent by nature, however, some soak up water better than others. I looked for options that have lots of customers who have vouched for their absorbency.
  • Extremely soft: With one exception that's made with a blend, all of the robes on this list are constructed with 100% cotton to ensure a touch-friendly fabric (please read: heavenly soft). Not only that, but they also all have lots of real-life testimonials affirming their plush feel.
  • Durable: Where possible, I looked for features like double-stitching and reviews discussing the overall durability of the fabric. All of the robes on this list are high-quality choices that are sure to last a long time.

Additionally, I sought out robes with features like deep pockets and belts that stay in place, according to customers.

Given these factors, check out the best terry cloth robes in nearly every style.

1. The Best Overall

With over 2,000 reviews, it's made from 100% Turkish cotton with plush terry texture that's super soft and highly absorbent. On top of that, it's moisture-wicking, too. It features strong double-stitching and deep pockets with a secure, easy-tie belt. If that's not enough, it comes in 24 vibrant colors, including red, pink nectar, and deep taupe.
