Snowe Honeycomb Bathrobe
Another robe that everyone loves is the Snowe Honeycomb Bathrobe. If you are looking for a summer style for getting out of the shower, this is a good choice since it is fast-drying, very absorbent, yet lightweight. This comes in unisex sizing, so it is a little tricky for women to get that perfect fit, some women find it a little oversized, so it is generally recommended to size down if you are interested in this pick. The lovely honeycomb lightweight fabric creates a nice drape that is well-made and comes in beautiful colors. One thing to note about the Snowe Honeycomb is that the sleeves are on the longish side, but are easy to roll up when you are getting ready or if you are washing dishes.

Women’s Beautifully Soft Robe – Stars Above™
A great moderately priced pick that you can find at Target is the Women’s Beautifully Soft Robe from the brand Stars Above™. This is an inexpensive choice that comes in a few darker colors (black, navy, and charcoal grey); it can be hard to find lightweight styles in dark colors for some reason. The length of this design will probably hit most women just above the knee. The fabric is modal, so it is soft, light with a slightly silky feel to it. It has a lovely piped trim down the front and around the cuffs that elevates the look.

The shorter length is a popular luxury style for brides-to-be when they are getting ready for the big day. It has pretty lace detail and comes in other colors than just white, so it can work well for every day, not only for when you are getting married. This is another design that is made of modal, so it is very soft to the touch while still being stretchy and durable. The sleeves are kimono length, so they are wide, elegant, and comfortable to wear. If you are looking for something stylish and glamourous to lounge at home, this could very well be the style for you.

Double Cotton Long Robe
This Double Cotton Long Robe from The White Company is a very lightweight option that is made from two layers of soft muslin. Muslin is quite an unusual fabric for a robe, but it actually makes a lot of sense since it is known for getting softer the more you wash it. It is also breathable yet insulating, so it will help regulate your body temperature making sure you don’t get too hot or too cold. This style has a longer kimono shape with wide cropped sleeves that are practical and comfy. If you are looking for something a little different than your average summer robe, this design from The White Company is worth a look.

Honeydew Intimates All American Jersey Robe
Honeydew Intimates makes some lovely comfy pajamas that are cute and great for every day. This robe is another excellent product from Honeydew Intimates that is made from an ultra-soft, drapey jersey. This has quite a short hem, so it is a good option if you are on the small side. The rounded hem gives it a casual comfy look, and the material is loved for the soft and light feel. The sleeves are full length, and some women find them a bit too long for a summer style, but you can roll them up or shorten them if needed. A couple of things to be aware of with this design. One is that it tends to shrink quite a bit when you wash it. Also, be aware that if you get the white color, it has the word ‘wifey’ written on the chest. Other than that, it is a nice choice for the summer months.
