I have had this robe for 4 years, worn almost daily and laundered at least once a week. It is extremely soft, does not stain easily and continues to hold up very well. I ordered 2 for my guest house and everyone loves them to snuggle in the mornings or after taking a bath. Great brand and quality product. It runs a little bit large but then you want a roomy robe to lounge in. I normally wear a small and this one is made for a combination s/m, which is the sizing up mentioned. I just roll up the sleeves.
This robe is nice - quality good but I'm a size 6/8 and the S/M barely closed in front - not even enough overlap to maintain modesty. I see other reviewers had the same complaint - I guess Ill be reading reviews more carefully in future.
I absolutely love my bath robe. The robe is a bit heavier in weight (which I prefer), the perfect length for a 5'4 ft woman, and VERY comfortable. It reminds me of the robes you get at good hotel that you don't mind walking around in for hours.
Product arrived fast and well packaged. It is so soft and exactly as advertised. The white ones are pure white, not yellowish, just like I love and expected. The large is large but not huge. I think its perfect for up to a size 16 (but not more). I got 4 so I can also have extras for my guests.
I ordered this robe in a cream color, not so creamy - much more of a yellow tan shade. Anyways, its really nice and the towel part seems very good, the only issue is that unlike anybody else is saying... I think its way too big! And yes, I ordered and got the s/m. So here's the thing, for any woman who is truly a size s or xs (I am 5'2 100lbs) this robe is massive. If you like it big than its pretty good. I surely don't. I understand that most items are sized weird these days but this is no small robe. Its still very nice but is made for the "average" larger American, not a petite or European sized person.
I am 5'2 and weigh 105lbs, and It fits me perfect. However, if I was much bigger I can see what other reviewers had mentioned about it not closing well when you sit down. For a petite woman it is perfect, because usually other spa robes are made with so much material that one can barely lug it around. I love this robe! It is made out of the same materials that one would find in a nice spa. It is really a well made robe, but it does run small.
I'm debating whether to return this robe or to keep it and be less than thrilled. As other reviewers have noted, the robe just doesn't close sufficiently in front so that when I sit, it opens up. I ordered the S/M, as I wear a size 4 or 6, but it still doesn't close completely in front. The fabric is nice and the color is a rich brown, but I can see being really uncomfortable come a cold winter morning
