Heavy robe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lil, New England from NH on Tuesday, December 6, 2016
I read the reviews, as always, before buying the item. I went out comparing items and prices, as usual. I searched the internet before investing in this item. I already had one robe from Sierra (with embroidered dogs on it); I loved that robe, but I needed a second one for my mom. What I found in stores: most items made in China, synthetic, thin, poorest quality. I am not naming those stores here - that was just a huge disappointment, the prices on display were ridiculous for the quality, and the so-called promotions were just deceiving. After searching for a long while, I realized that Sierra's price was the best for 95% cotton (I remember reading a very negative review referring to the 5% synthetic in this product - oh well, I feel lucky to find an item at this price that is 95% cotton); however, I finally made up my mind and bought this robe, intended as a gift for my mother; she is 5'2", 100 lbs. It was way too long for her, so I gave her mine, and I saved this new one for myself; I just realized mine was 100% fleece (comfortable anyway); the new one was 95% cotton, but very long and heavy; since I am 5'7", and 120 lbs, I kept the new one and gave mom the fleece one.
Highlights: The robe is good quality cotton (even if made in China); it is a good absorbing huge towel, it is very warm, great for winter; it is heavyweight; perfect for New England winters. I bought the pink color, and it's just like in the picture. I was happy to have gotten it. The small size is good for 5'7" or taller ladies.
