Ever since we’ve been abiding by stay-at-home orders, I’ve been taking my robe shopping very seriously. Dramatic? Maybe, but definitely worth it.

According to Lyst’s “Stay At Home’ Searches” live data blog, searches for bathrobes have increased 23 percent week-on-week.

There are so many different robe styles out there to sort through. From jersey cotton to uber-soft plush, etc. and then you have to decide on the length. Are you in the market for a lingerie-esqué silhouette on the sexier side or are you looking for that spa-like oversized style that you’ll never want to take off?

Ahead, we did our research based on Nordstrom’s customer reviews to find the best robes out there while we give our real wardrobe a rest. The retailer has a huge selection of cozy robes, but the truth is, most of them did not make the cut. Below, I narrowed down the six top-rated robes that are perfect to wear when lounging the day away.

Shop: Honeydew Intimates All American Jersey Robe, $38

For under $40, this everyday robe is made from super-soft, drapey jersey fabric. It’s available in three different hues and is favored for how soft, sexy and versatile it is. However, due to its cut rounded hem, many shoppers complained that the length is much shorter in the back. So, if you’re on the taller side, this probably isn’t the best option. The robe has over 140 reviews with a 4.3 star rating. One shopper summed it by saying, “Previously I only owned big, spa like robes. I’ve been looking for something a bit sexier. This is silky soft and stretchy. It does run short… If you don’t want the sexy look definitely size up.”

Shop: Giraffe At Home Chenille Robe, $119

This is perhaps the softest option on the market due to its luxurious chenille fabrication. “Wearing this robe is like being enveloped in a pink cloud. I may even buy another one! It fits perfectly with plenty of overlap…” one customer explained. It features also two front pockets and a slightly oversized fit.

Shop: UGG Miranda Robe, $96.95 (Orig. $130)

We can always count on UGG to deliver the softest and coziest styles. The brand’s plush fleece robe comes highly recommended with a 4.7 star rating and over 100 reviews. One customer admitted to “recommending this robe to everyone I know.” She also explained, “This is by far the softest robe I have ever owned! It fits true to size and the hood is perfect.”

Shop: Refinery29 Connie Print Woven Robe, $51.75 (Orig. $69)

This stylish robe from Refinery29’s newly launched collection is a totally chic option. The lightweight fabric makes it the perfect choice for summer. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the thin fabric makes this robe see through. “This robe is adorable! The polka dots and large pockets sold me, but the material is very thin (and even see through). This is not a fall/winter robe if that’s what you are looking for, but it would be a great robe for the hotter months, ” one shopper explained.

Shop: Polo Ralph Lauren Men’s Cotton Fleece Robe, $90

In the men’s department, this velvety soft robe is one of the top-rated styles. One reviewer said, “Great soft robe! Replaced my favorite robe of 15 years with this robe and could not be happier with my purchase. Will be on my gift list soon.”

Shop: Natori Luxe Shangri-La Robe, $96 (Orig. $160)

If you’re looking to add luxury to your loungewear, this Natori robe checks all of the boxes. It’s made from the exquisite fabrication of a soft modal blend and features elegant lace trimming. The caveat? A majority of shoppers agree that this robe runs small, so we suggest sizing up!
