I am looking for a towelling bathrobe for my DM who has left sided paralysis after a stroke. Bought the last ones from John Lewis and thought it was good quality but the loops pull out just as badly as the cheaper ones do.
I put a robe on the radiator whilst I am washing her then pop it on to her to keep her warm whilst I’m drying the nooks and crannies.

I love wearing Paw’s big fluffy dark blue one from the White Company (years ago)
I find their women’s sizing and mine less than compatible, but his is wonderfully generous!

Mine is also from the White Company a Christmas present from my daughter years ago and still going strong but their clothing is expensive, it does seem to be high quality though

I was going to say White Company are the best not cheap but lovely quality.

check out King of Cotton bathrobes, my last purchase, which arrived a couple of days ago.I'm slim but their medium size is ample. 2 front pockets.think there's a discount offer,certainly came in at under 30.00
Hope this helps - I love mine,it's pink,and, at 12.40, I'm still wearing itgrin
All the very best to your

Thank you for this thread; I have an M&S one which I've had for a couple of years and have never liked it, so a new one is on my wish list.

King of Cotton as recommended by Alishka is a fabulous company, real high quality
However it’s worth looking at bamboo towelling robes.
They are so soft and light, they don’t pull like traditional Terry.

king of cotton, best of all

King of Cotton, or Dunelm. My last Dunelm one was definitely the best for not having pulled threads! Also very good "weight" iykwim.

PS, I once got one for Mr P from King of Cotton, and had "Best Chap" embroidered on it! blush

Ooh! I only typed 'bathrobes' into Google and KoC came up. Had NO idea that it was so popular and recommended!
Anyway, it's great!

Update - after having a teensy accident involving a red wine/bathrobe interface last nightshock, can affirm that they wash beautifullygrin
