Great robe...maybe too much of it?

The robe is thick and thirsty and after only a few wearings is already getting softer than it was when it came out of the package. I can tell it is going to get even cushier with age. It's exactly the kind of hard-to-find, lush terrycloth that I've been looking for for more than two years. And, for the discounted STP price I paid, it was an absolute steal!

The only thing that would make the robe better for *me* would be if it were sized a bit smaller. I'm 5'2", 125 pounds and I ordered the "small". The robe wraps around me so generously that it almost overlaps the belt loop on the far side -- any larger and it would be unmanageable. As it is, it completely covers over opposite side pocket. In terms of length, it literally grazes the tops of my feet, so I'm actually thinking of cutting off a few inches of the length and re-hemming it. The sleeves cover my palms and so I have to fold them back into cuffs to keep them out of my way. In short, on *my* frame this robe is a bit bulky...but since I was looking for a warm-and-comfy, cuddle-up robe I don't mind in the least.
