Excellent Quality, Thick & Comfortable

Reviewed by Taking It Easy Guy from San Mateo, CA on Friday, October 12, 2012
After reading previous reviews I purchased this 100% cotton robe 1 size smaller (Medium) than I normally wear (Large) & I'm glad that I did as it does run rather big. For reference I'm 6'1", 170lbs. Even with a medium size I had to wash the robe in warm water and dry on hot setting. It shrunk about 1 1/2" - 2" in robe and sleeve length. The robe is now 7" from the floor instead of approximately 5" and the sleeves now come down to my knuckles instead of to about the end of my fingers. Even so, I roll up the cuffs so that the sleeves are at my wrists and find this works very well. Washing the robe and using liquid fabric softener upon receipt eliminates the unusual odor (as others have mentioned) as well as making it even softer. With this new, heavier & quite comfortable robe I'm now comfortably lounging around the house and deck during the year around cool SFO area mornings & evenings. In fact, I'm typing this review in it. Did I mention that this robe is very comfortable and quite a bargain at this price. I really like it and you will too.
