As with any lingerie, a woman should have a few styles of sleepwear robes in her wardrobe. With so many styles of short robes out there, it may be hard to pick just one. Short robes encompass styles from frilly little chemise-length robes through plush and jersey spa robes. Kimono robes are a popular choice in short robes as are classic wrap robes in cotton or a cotton/modal blend. For modesty and comfort, there are loose-fitting housecoats, sometimes with a full zipper. Often, sexy babydolls and chemises are sold as a set with a matching robe. Meant more to entice than cover, these short robes may be just right for an intimate evening.
