Best after Wash & Dry, Nice, long length

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gloria goes shopping from California on Saturday, January 28, 2012
I was happy to see a nice robe that wasn't unisex or one-size; there weren't any available in my daughter's size (small) so I tried a medium hoping it would work out okay. I washed and dried it according to the manufacturer's instructions before giving it to her, as there was quite a bit of tiny, loose, cut threads from the manufacturing process scattered all over it, which might put some people off when they first open it...it came out looking very nice and was soft, warm & cozy. The robe is terry inside and out and is very absorbent, but it is NOT the 'tightly woven plush surface' stated in the description. It ended up being a bit large but not overwhelmingly so [I was afraid she would be swimming in it] leading me to think that this item actually runs pretty true to size once some shrinking during washing/drying is taken into consideration. The length is great--she is only 5'1" and it fits her at the ankles. It seems well made and substantial without being TOO heavy--the fabric weight (14oz)is higher than other robes I have found. I looked around quite a bit both in stores and online for a true cotton terry robe (very hard to find! especially in this longer length) and this one is easily equivalent to many costing 3X more than I paid! While I wouldn't classify this as a $$$$$ 'luxury resort' robe, I definitely consider it a great buy--$$$ quality for $--it is functional, practical and should last for years. And my daughter likes the cute apple green color...I recently bought the men's version for my son as well--also a great deal! :)
