Classic Turkish Cotton Robe

Bottom Line

We found this snug and soft bathrobe to be great for those hoping to add a bit of indulgence to their after-shower routine.

Pros

Cotton material feels warm and heavy on the body as it dries away any excess moisture. Doesn't lose any texture or color after multiple washes in the cycle. Has two deep pockets. The material felt perfect for those colder winter nights.

About the product

Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe Single Product Review

Is the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe worth buying?

Whether you get a facial, a massage or just relax in the sauna, visiting a spa is always a welcome bit of pampering. That’s especially true when you slip on a cozy, fluffy spa robe. 

But you don’t have to go to a spa to enjoy the luxurious feeling of a comfortable robe. Many high-quality cotton bathrobes have a soft, plush texture that can make you feel like you’re at the spa every time you step out of the shower. 

The Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe is a plush robe with a comfortable shawl collar and a tie waist that comes in five classic neutral shades and some seasonal colors. It's made of high-quality Turkish cotton and has two front pockets. It’s machine-washable for easy cleaning. 

Testing the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe

Manufacturers make many claims when marketing their products, but BestReviews never accepts them as fact. Instead, the BestReviews Testing Lab uses a team of objective testers to evaluate the products in real-world conditions to see how they really perform. These testers include both experts in specific product categories and everyday consumers who only want to know if a product can make their life easier. 

When testing the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe, the BestReviews Testing Lab considered its weight, feel, washability and overall comfort. 

What is the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe?

Many bathrobes are made of cotton, but the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe features 100% long-staple Turkish cotton. This premium cotton has extra-long fibers that make it stronger and more durable than regular cotton. However, it isn’t as heavy as other premium types of cotton, such as Egyptian, so the robe is the perfect weight for year-round use in many climates.

The robe comes in several unisex sizes and offers a comfortable fit with extra room for added comfort. It’s long enough for tall individuals, so you don’t have to worry about too much of your legs being exposed. The waist tie is wide and supportive, staying securely in its loops even when moving around. The front pockets are a good size and securely hold items, though they may not be large enough for some phones.

Because Turkish cotton is highly absorbent, the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe absorbs extra moisture from the skin after a shower or bath almost immediately, so you don’t have to dry off much with a towel beforehand. It washes well and actually gets softer after a trip through the washer.

How to use Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe

The Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe comes in an easy-to-open box, but Parachute recommends washing the robe before wearing it for the first time. It's machine-washable, so you can toss it in the washer like other laundry items. However, it’s important to wash it properly to keep the cotton as soft as possible. 

Start by adding approximately a quarter-cup of mild laundry detergent to an empty washer. Next, choose a delicate cycle that uses cold or warm water and a medium spin speed. Prepare the robe for cleaning by removing its waist tie, so it doesn’t get twisted or knotted during washing. You can toss the tie in the washer with your robe or place it in a laundry bag for delicates to keep it safe. It’s safe to wash the robe with items made of similar materials and in similar colors, including towels and sheets. Avoid overloading the washer; there should be enough room for the robe and other items to move freely. 

After washing your Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe, tumble-dry it on low heat. Parachute recommends substituting wool dryer balls for dryer sheets or fabric softeners because they're more eco-friendly and help keep your robe soft and plush. 

Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe benefits

After testing the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe, the BestReviews Testing Lab loves how soft it feels. Compared to similar robes, it's heavier, offering high-quality, durable construction that can keep you warm after bathing. It also absorbs water well, so it can dry you off quickly after you get out of the shower. 

The unisex cut of the robe has a comfortable fit that envelops your body and can work well for a range of sizes. The testing lab appreciated how well the robe washes, noting that it felt softer and more absorbent after cleaning. The pockets are a nice touch for warming your hands and holding small items. 

Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe drawbacks

While the BestReviews Testing Lab appreciates how heavy and well-made the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe feels, it may be too warm for year-round use in some climates. Its thickness also means it can take up a lot of space in your bathroom or wherever you plan to store it, which can be challenging if your home has limited space. The robe can take up to 24 hours to dry when you use it after a bath, and the material doesn’t feel as plush and soft as it does when it’s fresh from the dryer. 

Should you get the Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe?

The Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe is an excellent choice for anyone who wants a premium, highly comfortable bathrobe and has space in their bathroom or closet to store it. People in colder climates will find the robe especially luxurious because it can keep you warm and cozy after bathing, even in winter. Given its quality and price point, the testing lab recommends the robe as a gift for all types of recipients and occasions, including as a second wedding anniversary gift when the traditional gift is cotton.
