Wrap yourself in a satin robe to feel a bit like a Hollywood starlet. Elegant, sleek and flowing, nothing feels quite as a luxurious as satin. In the Middle Ages, satin was always woven from silk, making it extremely expensive. Today, satin can be made from a variety of fibers, and modern satin is usually polyester or nylon. Satin is distinguished by a weave that creates one glossy surface and a matte surface on the reverse.
Satin robes are offered in many styles--something for everyone. Satin kimonos and caftans are very popular. If you're going for the sex appeal, look for babydoll-length satin robes, sometimes trimmed with fur or cascades of lace.
