Who doesn’t love a good robe? When the going gets tough, bathrobes are the perfect comforter; when work is extremely busy, bathrobes are there to soothe; when you just want to sit out near the pool bar, bathrobes are on your side. Don’t pick just any bathrobe to wear during the hot summer months—find out Boca Terry’s tips for picking the perfect one to wear in warmer climates!
Pay Attention to Weight (But, Don’t Be Fooled)
While many buyers consider heavy robes to be higher quality than their lighter counterparts, this is a common misconception. Of course, the weight of an item can be a good sign of the workmanship and fabric quality, but weight alone does not fully dictate a product’s value and quality. Don’t be fooled into thinking that lighter products are always made with less care and precision. Our tip: stick with Boca Terry and overall product quality will not be a concern, regardless of product weight. We put the same amount of care into each item.
Warm Weather Wear
Heavy bathrobes are perfect for winter getaways, but don’t order heavyweight robes for warm climates. When you decide to purchase robes to be worn in a hot haven, think breezy, cool, and light—this is the perfect combination for your climate.
Choose a Fabric
Fabric plays an important role in how hot or cool a piece of clothing will feel to the wearer. Terrycloth is a popular fabric made from cotton; typically, it is thick, which promotes absorbency. Terrycloth has a base layer of fabric, to which several loops are attached. The hoops of thread help to collect water, making this fabric extremely good at drying users off.
Waffle weave fabrics, on the other hand, are much lighter. Because they are not created with absorbency as the most important factor, waffle weave fabric is woven into a single layer; this eliminates the bulk and weight associated with some terry cloth items, and allows waffle weave products to be much lighter.
Decide on Material
Material differs from fabric choice; the materials used to construct a bathrobe are crucial when it comes to picking the right product. If you live in the Caribbean, in the middle of Arizona, near the Equator, or in any other hot climate, opt for more breathable materials—you can thank us later. Synthetic materials tend to be moisture-wicking, and draw sweat or other moisture away from the body. Synthetics make it easy to create very light, airy fabric, such as polyester or modal.
On the other hand, although cotton can often feel somewhat heavy in the heat, it is very absorbent, making it another great pick for hotter climates.
Why is absorbency so important? Think of this: warmer climates often offer a variety of outdoor, water-themed activities. Robes constructed from 100% combed cotton are much more absorbent than items made of other materials. This makes cotton products the perfect pick to step into after a long shower, when hopping out of the pool, or while getting out of the ocean.
Plus, cotton robes help make your beach bag a lot lighter; they are a cover-up and towel all at once! A great option for hotels and resorts that are low on towels, a robe is a great alternative to offer guests.
Cut and Style
A robe’s cut and style should vary, depending which climate you are in. Some argue that a long, loose-fitting robe is a good choice for very hot climates, as it protects the skin from harmful UV rays and keeps the hot air out—just picture the clothing sported by the locals of the Middle East. Though, others argue that a shorter robe allows the breeze to cool off one’s legs. As a purchasing manager, giving your guests options is a positive way to ensure their happiness.
