Nice Old Fashioned Robe

Reviewed by Loves to travel from Sacramento on Thursday, September 19, 2013
I've been looking for this robe for years! Substantial weight terry - feels quite heavy when trying on in the summer, but will be perfect as the weather cools. Didn't notice any sizing smell or stiffness that some others have reported (this may be color dependent? - I ordered in the darker blue), but washed once anyway. Filled the lint filter (of course!), but I am especially pleased that the terry loops didn't release loose threads - maybe because it is a low, dense terry vs. a long-loop terry? I am 5'5" and weigh 155 lbs - I ordered in a Large and it fits perfectly. There is about 1 foot overlap across the front (which I wanted), the belt is long enough, and there is plenty of room in the shoulders (I don't have especially large upper arms, but some other robes have been very restrictive in the shoulders.) Robe shrunk about 1" after drying - hem just skims the top of my slippers. I have short arms, so the sleeves were a little long for me, but the substantial 4" hem on the sleeves means that they stay rolled up when I roll them up. Two basic patch pockets on either side of front should work fine. As I write this, I think I'd better order another one!
