A Truly Beautiful Robe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by ShoppaHaulic from SC on Thursday, January 29, 2009
This robe is absolutely gorgeous!! Both the style & color; I ordered the Rose Pink & it's such a pretty shade of pink. Now, it IS thick & heavy, which is personally what i was looking for, but if you want a lighter-weight robe, this isn't it. AND, my personal experience w/it is, & recommendations from it are this: When I washed it according to the care instructions, too many threads came loose(the terry is a larger-looped knit, so not that super smooth knit, yet still so soft & snuggly) & shrunk, not a whole lot, but too much for me, so that the front wouldn't close enough. Of course, STP was so GR8 about it, I had a replacement w/in a few days! I also tried an XL but way too big(as they ARE LONG & I'm small & need to have shortened anyway, but shoulders, pockets, etc. were way down low & robes ARE roomy & had to return that one too) So, I don't know yet, but"ll try washing on GENTLE CYCLE(not regular) & then put on LOW HEAT just for maybe 10 min, then AIR DRY rest in dryer. This will take some time due to the generous amt. of material, which I just love. Now many of you may have no problem putting it thru dryer on low 'til dry because it is very generously cut. Just be careful of the threads. I'll try to post another review when I see how this one turns out. But it is SOOO beautiful & comfy that i MUST make it work & even ordered another one in the Lt. purple(also so i don't over-wash one)! This one's worth it to me.
