Women's Satin Robes
A silk robe might be the most popular, but there are different types of robes such as satin kimonos, satin robes and more. A satin robe is lighter and softer than a terry cloth robe, which is why it is a better option for women as casual night wear.
What Types of Satin Robes Can You Find?
Satin robes come in all shapes, such as nightie style robes, bridal satin robes, monogrammed robes and robes with silk piping. They also come in different sizes and lengths, such as short and long, as well as some with trains. Here are some examples of other styles:
- Satin Kimono Dressing Gown: It comes in various shapes and it's thigh-length with a bathrobe tie.
- White Satin Robes for Brides: They are usually commissioned with embroidery for brides to wear during preparation on their wedding day. Bridesmaids may have other coloured robes as well.
- Long-Sleeved Satin Bathrobe: These can be used after bathing and to cover up nighties.
How Should You Wear Your Satin Robes?
Satin robes are not just meant for the bedroom. They can also be used as daywear inside the home. Here are some styles that are meant for other uses:
- Dust Wraps: These types of robes are meant to cover your outfit while going out.
- Full-Length Robes: These can be used outdoors in your garden because it covers more of your body than a mid-length satin gown.
- Lacy Satin Robes: These are more for aesthetics than purpose as well. Some examples include red and black satin robes, which are ideal for more intimate sleepwear.
How to Take Care of Your Satin Robes
The first rule of cleaning clothes is to follow the laundry tab. However, when there are no instructions available just follow the second rule: never bleach delicate fabrics. Other than that, here are some tips on how you can care for your satin robe:
- Satin should always be hand-washed or washed in a machine using a delicate setting.
- Soak the robe in cold water; never warm or hot.
- Squeeze the robe after washing. Do not wring it.
- Do not use a dryer.
- For silk items, they should either be dry-cleaned or hand-washed using specific cleaners for silk.
