Towel robes are bathrobes created using terrycloth and other fabrics that can also be used for bath and hand towels. As with towels, a towel robe can be created using material with varying thread counts and patterns, resulting in a wide range of robe types. The towel robe is one of the most popular choices in hotels and spas that supply robes for their guests.

Because a towel robe is constructed with materials also used in towels, the feel is often soft and soothing to the skin. The ability of the material to readily absorb moisture makes it an ideal selection for people emerging from a shower or bath. As lounging wear after bathing, this kind of bathrobe is both comfortable and practical.

Robes of this type are available in many different colors and sizes. Hotels and spas often choose to go with white robes made with thicker and more absorbent material. Often, these robes are oversized and identified as a “one size fits all” product. The choice of white for the robes sends a subtle message of cleanliness in the hotel and spa, while also offering the practicality of being able to utilize hot water and strong detergents to clean the robes in between guest reservations.

Terrycloth is far and away the most common option for a towel robe, lending itself well to sculpturing and patterns in the weave of the cloth. This means that it is possible to purchase a waffle towel robe as well as a robe tufted with circles, stripes, or other designs. While many people prefer these more eclectic designs, simple towel robes that are thickly woven and soft to the touch are still the most popular.

When it comes to style, the towel robe is available in a wide range of designs. There are kimono style robes as well as the traditional continental design. Both are available in lengths ranging from mid-thigh to mid-calf, as well as robes that will reach to the top of the foot. The continental design may sport a narrow lapel that tends to blend in with the robe or feature a prominent oversized lapel that is attached to a hood.

Because the robes are produced in a variety of sizes, styles, colors, and textures, it is possible to find something suitable for just about everyone. Many designs are found at discount outlets, although the thicker and softer versions of the towel robe are normally found at high-end department stores and boutiques. This makes it possible to find robes to fit even a tight clothing budget.
