When choosing a bathrobe, you have to keep a lot of things in mind. How does it look? Is it absorbent? These are important questions. However, the most important question you can ask, and the one that matters the most to most people, is how does the robe feel?
When it comes to comfort, the main factor to consider is material. While many different materials are available and provide some level of comfort, the fabric of choice that most women prefer is terry cloth.
What is Terry Cloth?
Terry cloth is a super-popular type of fabric that’s prized for its mix of softness, comfort and strength. Simply defined, terry cloth is a fabric that is covered with tiny loops that drastically increase the surface area of the fabric in question. This increase turns the fabric into a super-material of sorts, much stronger, softer and more absorbent than you would expect from a similar cut of a different material.
There are actually three different kinds of terry fabrics that are available:
- Towel Terry — this is the most common type of terry cloth that most people think of when they think of this fabric. It features the looped weave talked about above on both sides of the fabric.
- French Terry — this type of fabric features the same loops that make terry cloth famous, but only on one side. The other side is smooth and flat. This type of terry cloth is more often used in “regular” clothing.
- Terry Velour — this is similar to French terry in the sense that it is two-sided. However, the smooth side of terry velour is more plush and velvety, giving it a more luxurious feel.
When you put that combination of strength, softness and absorbency into a garment like a bathrobe, you end up getting an item that almost seems too good to be true. And, if that’s the case, why settle for anything less?
