On the fenced

Reviewed by TallTexan from TX on Friday, July 18, 2014
I am female, 5'9" with long arms and long torso, usually wear women's size 8 in dresses. I was looking for an absorbent terry robe to wear as I step out of the shower. Ordered a men's robe as ladies are usually too short in sleeves. I ordered this in men's Small, white color. The fabric is very plush, especially on the interior. The size is ENORMOUS. Even with 5" cuffing, the sleeves come to the base of my fingers and the bottom of the armholes sit almost at my waist. The sleeve opening is very large, and I definitely could not wear it while cooking breakfast as it would be a huge fire danger around open flame burners. The body length is good...hemline sits just below mid-calf. The front wraps completely across when closed, with center opening coming all the way to each side seam. I haven't decided yet if I will keep it. It is definitely cozy and I am sure very absorbent. I am a seamstress, but it would be very difficult to alter due to the thickness of the terry fabric. I will try laundering and running through the dryer a few times and hope for some shrinkage. If all else fails I guess I can offer it to my 6'4" son.
