What are the Long Robes Called?

Long robes are called the same thing as short and standard robes, and that word is ”robes.” Unlike the rest of the clothing industry, where our Tall stature gives us a different section with name on it, robes are one area where we don’t stand out as much.

How Long Should a Men's Bathrobe be?

When buying your bathrobe, you want to make sure the robe’s hem comes down between the mid to top of your calf. To do this best, you will want to know the measurement between the collar of the bathrobe to its hem. 

Who Makes the Most Comfortable Robe?

There are a lot of brands leading the way for the most comfortable robe to purchase, and every season there can be a new top spot, but right now, Parachute has the top spot. Made from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton right in Turkey, how can you go wrong?

What's the Best Men's Robe?

The best men’s robe in 2022 is the Classic Turkish Cotton Robe from Parachute. With two slouchy front pockets, a snug waist tie and a cozy shawl collar, this plush bathrobe is your ultimate Sunday morning relaxation, guys.

How do I know my Robe Size?

Bathrobes are supposed to fit loose with the sleeves coming to just above your wrist. The bottom of the robe will fall somewhere between your ankles and knees, but I suggest aiming for your calves. I have put together this list for you on all the essential areas to pick the perfect size.

1. Length

The distance between the neck’s center to the ankle. For bathrobes, the length is the measurement between the collar of the bathrobe to its hem.

2. Width

The circumference of the bathrobe skirt. This needs to fully cover a person’s legs and hips without being too loose or tight.

3. Sleeve

The sleeve length is measured between the shoulder seam and the sleeve cuff.

4. Sleeve Opening

The sleeve opening is not an issue when buying a bathrobe.

5. Belt

The length of the robe’s belt has to be proportional to the bathrobe’s waist measurements.

6. Sweep

The sweep is the measurement of the bathrobe’s bottom hem from edge to edge.

What are Bathrobes for?

Bathrobes allow you to dry off casually in the comfort of a plush towel and body covering that is essentially a dressing gown. If you enjoy lounging about your house in the morning as you sip coffee checking up on what happened last night on your social media and online business, then a bathrobe is for you.

What is the Difference Between Men's Robes and Women's Robes?

There is little to no difference in the cut of a rob when it comes to men’s vs women’s robes. However, you can see differences in the fabrics used and the robes’ weight.
