I will answer this while I am sitting in my robe on the couch.

I do wear PJs sometimes but if I get up in the morning and/or out of the shower and I am not getting dressed yet, I will put the robe on. The only thing is that I need to get a light robe for the summer because the one I have is pretty thick and really meant for the fall/winter.

I see nothing girly about it, as a straight guy. I wear my bathrobe all the time in the winter, and even to the pool. When you just come out of the shower, it's much warmer and more convenient not to have to dry off and dress up immediately, but just to go commando under a bathrobe and let the bathrobe dry you off. Also great when worn over pajamas to keep you warm, especially since I wear gym clothes as pj's.

In the summer, I wear my bathrobe over my speedo to and from the lap pool. It serves as a great bathing suit cover-up, much more secure than wrapping a towel around your waist. You don't even need a towel, you can just get out of the pool, put on your bathrobe, and let the bathrobe dry you as you go back home. Keeps you plenty warm, too, and you can put your goggles, bathing cap, bathing suit, comb, or small towel in your bathrobe pocket. I see fellow lap swimmers wear parkas over their swimsuits. With a bathrobe, why would you even need a swim parka?

In the end, I find bathrobes very versatile--as a towel, as pajamas, as a swimsuit cover-up. They can be worn with slippers at home or with flip flops or crocs to the pool. They're not girly--they're robes, and kings wear robes. But I feel plush, comfy, and luxurious when I wear my solid blue, calf-length bathrobe--it feels like I'm at an expensive resort, lounging by the pool.
I dry off before I use the robe. I wouldn't want to be walking around in a robe with it getting damp and wet. I have sort of a towel thing that my mom bought me a long time ago that has shoulder straps and velcro so that I could wear it getting out of the pool and/or after the beach.

That was the only time I wore PJs (since I was a kid) and they were new


Same goes for slippers
I guess you're both guys....but back in the day my mom had a few fancy "bed jackets" - kind of like a nice robe but not long - just to keep your arms and top warm if you were sitting up to read or having breakfast in bed. Maybe it was some kind of fashion thing based on what movie stars did back in the '40's or '50's? Yeah, weird I know!

I've been trying to find a robe for my husband, but no luck. He's gone a summer weight one I made him from aloha fabric, but he'd like a warm one for winter, maybe fleece. I may have to get out the sewing machine.

He wears a robe lounging around the house.

Love bathrobes, thick and plush for winter, cotton for summer. They are great to transition from being damp from the shower and not have to immediately jump into your clothes. In winter, thick plush robes are warm and cozy, I also wear them while putting on makeup, it helps keep clothes clean.

Any spa or quality hotel will have thick cotton robes for men and women to change into. Having quality bathrobes at home, just adds to the pampered feeling.

I think you're wrong ... many still wear bathrobes.

But...since itís a fashion thread....itís if they are seen as fashionable & they arenít. Most people at hospitals donít even wear them even with some older people.....itís almost an embarrassing thing....

Ofc they are still worn & sold....& many older people like them....they are used to wearing them & nothing wrong with it if thatís what they wanna do!!!

I do not own a bathrobe nor pj's. I sleep in the raw or with boxer shorts on. I do have one of these I wear when I first get up.

I wear a bathrobe daily after taking a shower. The only time I tend to wear a bathrobe over pjs/nightgown is when I am staying overnight with friends or family.
