Bamboo Bathrobes

It seems highly unlikely that the classic terrycloth bathrobe will ever go out of style. To be sure, no other type of material provides us with the complete comfort and sense of relaxation that a genuine terry robe does. Even the best quality hotels and spas understand the lasting desirability of this soft, soothing, fluffy variety of after-bath wear. While it may be possible to approximate the classic casual look of a true terry robe, no one can fool the well-informed public on this matter when it comes to absolute luxury in casual spa, sauna and home post-bathing wear.

Can you imagine attempting to create the ultimate comfort in such a robe without the fluff and fuzz of authentic terry? I think we’ll all heartily agree that it can’t be done. By nature, the fluff allows for air circulation while the fuzz provides utmost comfort and a mandatory sense of luxury and laziness. After all, none of us are in the slightest mood for hustle and bustle following a totally relaxing, leisurely bath or shower. It’s high time to do just the opposite–stretch out and luxuriate in the depths of tantalizing terry. Just the texture of this marvelous material obviously created just to offer the very top quality in creature comforts, makes us languish in lazy la-la land until otherwise directed to any necessary activity. You can tarry in your terry robe to your heart’s desire until something of vital importance comes along to burst your leisure-time bubble.

Most of us have, from time to time, broken out of this terry pattern of perfection to tentatively try other styles and materials in bathrobes. Yet, to date, nothing truly measures up to the endearing design and delicious decadence of an authentic terry robe. Perhaps in years to come some clever swim-and-bath-wear designer will venture forth with a possible substitution. But in the meantime, the vast majority of the leisurely-living and long-time lounging population will probably hang on to that comforting terrycloth wardrobe. After all, it packs well when traveling and never requires ironing. In addition, terrycloth towels are still in vogue, so why not terry ready-to-wear togs? This way, we can all continue to relax to our hearts’ content well-wrapped in the fluff and flair of modern-day terry-wear.

Bamboo Robe

Wouldn’t it be good if you could indulge in a luxurious bathrobe? Your answer is probably “yes,” but chances are you haven’t done it. For many, it ends up just being a passing thought that never gets anywhere and is soon forgotten. There are many reasons why we don’t treat ourselves well. One key reason is money. Another reason is we feel guilty if we indulge and pamper ourselves. Or, maybe we’re just too lazy to shop for ourselves? We stick to our old stuff because we’re convinced that it’ll take too much effort.

Should we hang on to these excuses? Purchasing a luxurious bathrobe is an excellent investment for five reasons.

The first reason to indulge in a luxurious bathrobe is because a good bathrobe will be with you for years. Sure you are likely to spend more, but if you pay more for something that is of superior quality, there is no money wasted.

Second, investing in a luxurious bathrobe is purchasing an item that will feel terrific on. There’s nothing quite as comfortable as a soft and fluffy bathrobe to cover up in after a bath or shower.

Third, a luxurious bathrobe is an item that you can not only wear after a bath or shower but also just wear as a cozy item for a lazy day. Hanging around the house in your bathrobe is fun and comfortable.

Fourth, time is not a problem with buying a bathrobe if you order it online. That’s the beauty of the Internet. You don’t have to drive all the way to a store to buy a luxurious bathrobe. You can buy one from the convenience of your home.

Fifth, ordering a luxurious bathrobe from the convenience of your home will provide you with more options. It is highly likely that you will have a wider selection of items to choose online rather than from a brick and mortar location.

So, consider these five reasons and go ahead and indulge in that elegant and luxurious bathrobe for yourself!

Platinum Robes

After a long summer that didn’t seem to want to end, people all across the United States are suddenly finding themselves in the midst of one of the coldest, snowiest Decembers on record.

In Minneapolis, there’s been so much snow that the inflatable roof of the Metrodome actually collapsed – a first. For the Twin Cities, the recent snowfall is the fifth biggest on record.

The rest of the Midwest isn’t faring much better; blizzards have been swirling around now for a couple of weeks. Colorado, too, is reporting record snow, and the white stuff has been spotted as far south as North Carolina and Alabama.

Get Thee a Bathrobe!

Given the record cold, anyone without a terry cotton bathrobe is simply tempting fate – or else has never experienced the joy of staying home from work or school wrapped up in a terry cotton bathrobe, sipping on coffee, watching bright red cardinals flit about in a whitened winter wonderland.

A terry cotton bathrobe is both man and woman’s best friend this time of year, and it doesn’t have to remain in use just to make it to and from the bathroom. On those snowed-in days when all you really want to do is sit around the house in warm slippers in front of a peaceful fire, a soft terry cotton bathrobe is the perfect accessory to drape on over your flannel pajamas.

Winter is just around the corner – in some parts of the country it’s already arrived – and that means two important things: it’s hard to get out of that nice, warm, cozy bed, and it’s also hard to finish that nice, hot shower and face the chilling blast of cold air when you open the shower door.

One trick you can use to mitigate the pain of stepping out of the shower is to use a heated towel rack. Place your towel and/or your bathrobe on the heated towel rack, and turn it on before you step into the shower. By the time your shower is done, your towel and your bathrobe will already be toasty.

On the high-end of heated towel racks, some devices have as many as 10 bars, so both your towel and your bathrobe have enough contact with the towel rack to make it plenty warm for you. Other devices are a little less expensive, but have fewer rails for your towel and bathrobe.

With a heated towel rack, you can change your attitude towards ending your hot shower in the dead of the winter. Instead of stepping out of the shower only to be greeted by goose bumps and chattering teeth, you’ll step into a warm towel and a warm bathrobe.

The Japanese kimono can be used as a comfortable, much more fashionable alternative to the bathrobe. Dating back to the fifth century AD, both Japanese men and women have been wearing kimonos since a similar style of dress was important from Han-era China.

In Japan, the kimono was always far more than something comfortable to wear around the house. western-style clothing didn’t make it to Japan until the early 20th century. In 1923, Japan’s emperor issued an edict requiring almost all public officials to change their style of dress from kimonos to western-style uniforms. Until that time, the kimono was one of the basic items of clothing for both women and men.

The east-west interchange of clothing styles goes both ways. Since the early 20th century, westerners have collected kimonos as souvenirs or as elegant, unique ways to dress. Although traditional kimonos remain expensive and elegant in the west, some people like to use the kimono as a loose-fitting housecoat to relax around the home.

Japanese-Americans still keep kimonos on-hand for special occasions. During the traditional Coming of Age Day, for example, a kimono is still a common item, as it is for weddings. A kimono jacket can be found for under $100; truly elegant silk kimonos can exceed $500.
