I remember on Leave It to Beaver, Wally and the beaver would wear them before going to bed. I haven't seen too many young men wearing them lately, but I have seen young women wearing those kimono style ones quite a bit.

Girly? That's not the reason. I'm 40 and none of my friends wear them. It's just cumbersome. i generally wear t shirt and shorts to bed. In the winter, light jogging pants that kind of look like pajama pants. Wearing something over is cumbersome when doing chores around the house, can get hot, etc.

Maybe in the old days when the house wife took care of everything, the robe was more convenient to lounge in.

I have a fleece robe for cool weather and a very light robe for warm weather to wear over my pajamas. I wear the mens button down pajama set (that were popular in the 50s). I am 27, that's my style and I like it.

No to robes, pajamas and slippers. And doubly no to sleeping caps and visors.

I don't. I put on my pajamas after drying off. I don't see the point of a bathrobe and they look too snooty to me.

I dunno about snooty....to me they just look super old fashioned.....clueless......I think the old people in hospitals that wear them...(not all of them do tho)...look cute. I know they are just trying to keep warm.......but for fashion & beauty....no way....

With a bathrobe, you wouldn't need to carry a change of clothes or a towel. And sometimes the lap pool is outdoors and it's chilly.

I guess if you wear trunks your thighs are already covered, but not if you wear a speedo, so a bathrobe helps with modesty.

I had a boyfriend who wore a short, navy and white kimono type robe in the morning when he didn't want to get dressed right away. He was a very arty type.

I always wear a fuzzy lounge hoodie and pants to cover up after a shower in seasons other than summer because if I don’t wear a bathrobe the sudden transition to cold temperatures will give me the chills make me sneeze a lot. FYI, I live along the Canadian border, so our winters can be downright brutal .

I've never had a Bf that wore a robe....did you like it? IMO robes aren't very manly on a guy.....like it's too prim & proper.
