A Satin Robe That's Too Tight

Any robe that you choose should be flowing and blouse-like, effortlessly draping over your curves and allowing you enough room to lounge and move freely.

A robe that’s too tight usually doesn't close properly (not a great look) and tends to accentuate every lump and bump, with a pulled look that more often than not makes you look larger than you really are.

The Solution - women’s robes that fit properly and allow you to move about effortlessly and comfortably.

A Robe That's Too Large

The opposite problem is true as well - choosing a robe that’s too big results in a look that’s so voluminous that you get lost in the fabric.

Ladies robes that are too large will tend to overwhelm  your silhouette, and feel cumbersome to wear. 

Robes should flatter and compliment your body, not hide it in too much material and overpower your curves.

The Solution - If the robe is hanging off your shoulders or you have to wrap it around too much, consider sizing down to get a more tailored fit.

Sleepwear That's Inferior Quality

Satin can be sumptuous and luxurious, but choosing a fabric that’s of lesser quality may irritate sensitive skin. Look for better quality satin instead of scratchy or too-shiny fabrics that will cheapen the overall look of your sleepwear ensemble.

Did You Know?

Popular satin robes often take their inspiration from the glamorous styles of 1930’s and 40’s.  These classic long robes often come with a “sweetheart” style neckline that is form fitted across the bodice, and typically fall elegantly in an A line shape.

Not Caring Properly For Your Satin Sleepwear

Like any beautiful lingerie, satin should be treated with care so that it looks as good as the day you bought it.

Throwing it into the laundry hamper and into the regular wash cycle will quickly cause it to pill and fade, and potentially snag the fabric.

The Solution - hand wash or place it in a mesh bag on a delicate cycle with detergent that's made specially for intimate apparel fabrics.
