Where can I find a bathrobe in Toronto?
December 16, 2005 2:32 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a super-comfortable bathrobe for my wife. I'm in in Toronto, and I need to buy it locally (no time to order it). Little help?

My wife and I will celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary soon and I'd like to get her a gift that matches the traditional style (i.e., cotton). She's mentioned that she'd like a bathrobe -- the short kind that goes about mid-thigh, not the long style -- and I'd like to get her a really nice, soft one. If a bathrobe's comfy she likes to spend the whole day in it, and I'm not about to discourage such behaviour. I'm thinking Frette, but if someone knows better I'm all ears.

I love my Barefoot Dreams robe. I got it at Nordstroms, I'm not familiar with Toronto, but the company says: For information on carrying Barefoot DreamsĀ® products in a retail store, or to find a store that carries our products near you, please contact us at: 818.707.8848.

Yeah, that's the one I was going to suggest too. It's RIDICULOUSLY soft and comfortable - I've bought the blankets and hoodies for oodles of friends/family and *every single one* of them has loved it. But the hoodie is a regular sweatshirt length (too short for a robe) and the robe is really long. So it's not ideal. You could definitely get it hemmed though.

Call Holt Renfrew and ask what they have -- they'll have some kind of luxurious robe, I'm sure.

This one is gorgeous and the right length - I bet they could do 2-3 day delivery for you.

Kathryn's Lingerie
is a nice lingerie/PJ store on Yonge - call them and ask if they have mid-length robes before going down.

Last year for Christmas my boyfriend got me one of these Kashwere robes. I'm not sure where you can get it in Toronto or if its the right length, but I swear to you it's the softest, comfiest, cuddliest thing I've ever worn.

There's a bedding/linens store on Yonge, about 4 or 5 blocks north of Eglinton (north of "Restoration Hardware") on the West side of the street. I can't remember the name but they had sets of fancy women's pyjamas in the window last xmas. I'd bet they have nice robes too.
I bought a white bathrobe by Polo for my mom at the Bay a few years back.
Holt Renfrew is a great suggestion.
I think I saw some women's bathrobes in the lingerie section of the Gap last week - I'm now in the U.S. though, so ymmv :)

My co-worker went to a spa a coupla weeks ago and swears that the robes from telegraph hill are the ultimate. I didn't explore the site, but she says they have free shipping and lots of color combos (very silky rayon or something one color exterior /terry interior another color) She says they dry really quickly, are truly plushy and fell in love. This is a terrific gift, I'm sure. I gained several brownie points with my sister 2 years ago by giving her a really nice bathrobe (not from here) cuz I knew she had just gotten a hot-tub. My co-worker also said that Telegraph Hill's robes were on several best-of lists. So definitely check them out.
