Shaped like a dressing gown. For a long time made only in white cotton smocking, then later mostly in terry cloth, the bathrobe has always been found where there is water. Meant to be used when getting out of the bathtub, it was manufactured in a silk ivory color during the 1930s as a complement to beach pajamas. Today it is an important item that goes along with a set of towels, with which it can match patterns, colors, and embroidery. It receives substantial attention from designers.
