There’s nothing better than slipping into a comfy robe at the end of a long day. Doesn’t matter if it is cold or hot outside, it’s like someone is giving you a big hug. Finding bathrobes for petites that give us that comfy, cozy feeling is not always as one might think. Sleeves and hemlines that are too long can be an issue for us unless we want to have things altered.
I am a queen of slipping into a bathrobe and pajamas early in the evening. It is something that just signals my body and mind that it is time to calm myself from the day. Also, slipping into a robe when I get out of bed in the morning is like hugging myself. Saying to myself good morning and it’s going to be a great day

Bathrobes And Robes For Petites That You Will Want To Live In
No matter what time of day you want to wear your robe you want it to fit and to be comfortable. You don’t want it dragging the floor so that you could easily trip. You don’t want the sleeves to be too long so that they don’t get soaked every time you try to wash your hands or do something at the kitchen sink. As a petite, you just want to find something that works for your short legs and arms. I totally get it.
First of all, I thought I would clarify the difference between a bathrobe and a robe. A bathrobe is one that you wear when you get out of the shower or bath. Think of the type of robe you see when you are staying at a nice hotel. That is a bathrobe, not a lounging robe. It is made of absorbent material like terry cloth.
A robe is just that, a robe. A comfy, cozy robe that you put on over your pajamas to lounge in or wear when you are getting your day started. It could be a warm fleece robe for winter and a cotton robe in the summer. Either way, it is something that you enjoy putting on to relax in.
Choosing The Best Bathrobe For You
Before you start shopping for bathrobes for petites there are a few things that you should consider:
- When and how are you going to wear it?
- What type of fabric do you want, something warm and cozy or lightweight?
- What length do you want, midlength(to the knees) or full length?
How Often Should You Replace Your Bathrobe/Robe?
We are all guilty of hanging on to our comfortable clothes for too long. Even if they are starting to look shabby. A bathrobe that you use when getting out of the shower or bath will need to be replaced more frequently than one you wear for lounging. Pay attention to how absorbent your bathrobe is. Most likely you will need to replace it every couple of years just like your bath towels.
When it comes to robes that you lounge in you can go longer between replacing. Most likely you are good for a few years as long as you take good care of it. Make sure you follow the instructions for laundering.

Robes That Are Great For Lounging
My definition of a robe for lounging is that it is almost floor length and the sleeves are above my wrists. The other must is that it has to have pockets. That is non-negotiable for me. I can’t walk, carry my hot tea, and phone all at the same time any time of the day. The phone always goes in the pockets.
Fleece robes like the one I am wearing in the photo above are great. They are soft and snuggly for the winter and they tend to launder beautifully. I am going to be honest in that I have a favorite spring/fall robe. One that is longer, but not too heavy thus I wear it in the spring and fall. This Natori robe is also a great option if you live in a warmer climate or your body temperature runs warmer.
Other great styles for lounging are robes that zip up. This style would be great for one of those PJs all day kind of days. If you are a true pajama pants and top kind of gal a shorter plush robe like this is the way to go. You have to find the robe that works for you.
Bathrobes are the robes you reach for when you get out of a hot shower in the morning or a relaxing bath in the evening. Its absorbent material helps you dry off and gives you privacy while you are choosing your outfit for the day or your pajamas for a good night’s sleep. Here are some good tips for good sleep hygiene from the CDC if you need some good suggestions.
This type of robe used to be referred to as dressing gowns. The absorbent material helps keep you warm and absorb the water from your bath or shower. You can use your bathrobe daily. Just keep in mind that you will want to launder it regularly like you do towels. You may find that you prefer using bathrobes for petites versus a towel. Again, think of it as a big hug for yourself as you start or end your day.
You will just need a good absorbent towel to dry your hair. Just like your bathrobe, let your hair towel air dry and you can use it more than once before laundering.
