Many people dream of living a life of luxury, but often scrimp on certain household items to save money. If bathrobes have always been on your non-essential list, you might be missing out on an easy way to add more relaxation and self-care to your bathroom routine.
Read on for six compelling reasons why a nice bathrobe is a good investment for any home!
- They are breathable
Nothing is nicer than coming home and changing out of your work clothes into something a bit more comfortable- an excellent way to relieve stress and compartmentalize your day. A bathrobe is the perfect comfortable outfit to slip into to wear around the house.
Unlike some leggings or t-shirts, bathrobes are breathable and soft on the skin even after multiple washes. This makes them relax to wear around the house in all sorts of weather, from the heat of summer to winter cold nights.
- Add some modesty
If you are living in a shared space or are expecting guests, consider investing in a bathrobe for some modesty for both you and your housemates.
Rather than dashing from the bathroom to your bedroom with just a towel wrapped around you and praying that no one sees you, with a bathrobe you can take your time. This also frees up your hands to carry items to and from the bathroom, making it more convenient.
- Provides warmth and comfort
In the winter, people love that cozy feeling of being snuggled under a blanket. A bathrobe worn over clothes replicates that warm feeling and provides an extra layer of comfort during the bleak winter.
Wearing a bathrobe is also cozy when you come in all bedraggled from the rain. Instead of putting on non-absorbent clothes, try jumping into your bathrobe. Most bathrobes are made from absorbent materials that will absorb all the moisture and warm you up.
- Fun for a night in/night out
Everyone likes to go over to their friend’s house to prep for a fun night out in town or to spend time late into the night just talking and laughing. Make the atmosphere more comfortable by having everyone slip into bathrobes.
Satin robes add a touch of class and sensuality to getting ready with friends, as well as helping everyone feel more at home. If your plans are more domestic, eschew your battered old pajamas for a nice bathrobe with your friend.
- Save towels
Most bathrobes are made of terrycloth, meaning they are highly absorbent just like towels. Rather than going through laundry loads of towels every time you shower, use your bathrobe to dry your body and save your towels for your hair.
This has a hidden environmental benefit- saving towels reduce the amount of water you use doing laundry. Save towels, save the planet and feel luxurious all at the same time.
- Useful by the pool
If ugly, oversized towels and expensive cover-ups are not for you, consider a luxurious bathrobe to work as both a towel and a modest cover-up by the pool or at the beach.
You can save space in your pool bag without having to bring bulky towels and extra clothes. More room for snacks!
- It helps you slow down
Many people don’t see the point in bathrobes because they introduce an extra step in between showering and getting dressed. For busy people, this could slow them down in the morning.
However, this is in fact the entire point of a bathrobe. Taking a few extra minutes in the morning to consider your outfit and how you present yourself could be an excellent opportunity for self-care and relaxation.
