I am 5'11" and 165 lbs. I generally wear a size 43 jacket, 15 1/2 33/34 shirt. Based on other reviews I bought the medium and after one wash I could not be more pleased with the size. The sleeves are still long, but not uncomfortably so and the shoulders hang a couple of inches as well. A small may ...

I don't know why this received so many great reviews. I'm 6'1.5", 255#, and very athletic. I wear a 46L, slim fit suit. 40x32 pants in Carhartts, 38x32 Lucky Brand Jeans and 16.5x36 shirt. XL in Carhartt, Dickies and Nike tops for reference. This thing is ridiculously large. Someone mentioned that she couldn't imagine a man that couldn't wear a medium. I believe that. This large seems more like an XXL to me, at least. The large lands below my mid shin, almost to my ankle. The sleeves are too long. The body is so big. It's certainly full coverage, if that's what you're after. However, the material is completely unremarkable. I wouldn't expect to have to wash a high quality robe and dry it with softener before it was nice. The terry seems cheap. It's neither dense, nor lush. Just seems like a very cheap, huge robe that I wouldn't pay more than $10 for. If the price is right for you, size down two sizes and expect what you're paying for.

This robe is super nice! They say it's gray but also looks a little violet. It is so nice after a shower- like having a super towel hug you dry! I really enjoy it! A best buy for me at $25 bucks - it is a $100 robe.
It weighs 2-3 pounds. It is a very good quality robe.

Hi -- I'm not sure of the actual weight of the robe as I ordered several items. It's a nice heavy-weight robe, yet flexible enough for a good elbow-bend. My husband's last robe was SO heavy that it was too bulky. I think you will love this robe! Let me know if I can answer more questions. Take care!

Hi Margie the robe is heavier than a regular run of the mill terry robe, but it is a better quality robe. My husband likes it. I have not washed it yet. (They say) it will soften up, we will see??

Bought mine recently (December) and it's 95 / 5. It's been washed & dried once and has not changed that I can see; except for getting a bit softer. And more absorbent. I'd say: follow the care instructions and you should be fine.

Jen I just bought a robe and it is absorbent as I use it for my trips to the hot tub and nothing else.. I'm 6-2" and bought a large and it is way oversized for me... I would go with the smallest mens possible and i guarantee it will still be big on you... I have not washed mine yet so no comment on shrinkage..If you are looking for something that will look stylish on you this is probably not the robe..If you want soemthing to wick water it is perfect.

I don't know the percentage of cotton for sure. When you first get the robe, it's a little stiff from the sizing. I washed it and it came out of the dryer very nice and soft. There was no shrinkage that I noticed, but with cotton there had to be some. It seems absorbent, more so after washing out the sizing. To give you an idea of the size, my son is a 6' 4" football player sized guy and the XL is perfectly sized around his body and comes to mid-calf. He loves the robe and appreciates that it is cut so generously. Most XL robes are too skimpy through the shoulders and around the waist for him.

I bought women's small and men's large. From comments, it appears the men's run a little longer than women's (maybe an inch) in comparable sizes (hard for me to compare the men's large I have with women's small, but comments seem to support that).. I am 5'10" and my women's small is 14" from floor on me (hits low calf area). This is after washing 3-4 times. On you, this would be 10" from floor, as you are 4" shorter. I bet the men's on you would be about an inch longer. Mine has the 5% polyester and shrunk about 1-2" in length and just some around (not enough that I notice, really). Wash on hot water and wash several times - they will definitely do a little shrinking. I recommend grey over green in mens' (bought both and grey seems like nicer fabric - does not pill up and shed like the green). Good luck. Also - very absorbant and nice out of shower or hot tub. (like a big fluffy towel).

I haven't washed mine yet but I think it will shrink about 4" in length, depending how I wash it, in cold or warm water.

It shrunk just a bit--I was actually trying to get it to shrink because my husband is between a Large and Extra Large and I ordered the XL. Almost wish it had shrunk a bit more. It is still fluffy and absorbent but took a couple cycles in the dryer to dry completely. Still happy with the purchase. I hope this helps!

They do run big and you will need to be aware of the length as it will be about 53" long.

While I have only tried the medium, I think a men's small would be probably be too large for what you are looking for. The men's medium is comparable in size to a men's large in other clothing. I would assume the men's small would be comparable in size to a men's medium in other clothing. If you are looking for something in a ladie's small size, this will probably be too large for you. If you like your robes big and long (I am 6'2" and this one comes down to about 3" above my ankles), this one would due. If you are looking for a trimmer, ladies fit near a ladies size small, this will probably be too large for you. On the positive side, this robe is very thick and warm so using it for an outside, winter hot tub would be a perfect use for it.

As a man, I usually wear a XL so I got the XL robe. They are big but in a comfortable way. I could have gotten away with a large. But, still these robes are incredible! I have been telling all my friends to order them if they have their size. I LOVE them! I hope they get more in stock, so I can order some other colors. You need to order it! You will be disappointed if you don't. I have been looking for these robes for about 6 months. The quality of these robes far out does any that I have seen at the high-end stores. You will not be disappointed! Enjoy!

Sizing runs huge. Size S still too big for a 6'3" man. Avoid this product as it's proportions are very awkward.
