This robe is thick and absorbent, really comfy. It's a little on the long side for me, but hey, I'm only 5'2", so probably it'd fit most people very well. The only problem I've encountered is that the dye seems to be bleaching (I got the rain color, and there are now some yellowish patches), even though I haven't washed it in anything but cool water (no bleach, no detergent). The spots are concentrated near the collar, possibly from shampoo residue in damp hair, but there are also some random spots in other places. A little disappointing, but for the price, I'd say it's a good value.
My husband and I bought our first home together right before our second anniversary. Traditionally, second anniversary gifts are cotton (I hope I'm right about that:) Anyway, I purchased two of these thinking they would be perfect to lounge in at night. We got them yesterday (in beige- love white, but they'd be stained in minutes) and they're wonderful. Soft, comfortable- I actually slept in mine. I love this product.
I ordered two of these robes -- his and hers -- and while overall I am pleased enough I am a little disappointed that the fabric is thinner and less plush than expected. These are not heavy robes. Also the sleeves are very long, especially since advertised as "one size fits most." Granted, I am only 5'5" but I have to roll the cuffs twice to find my hands!
The bathrobe was a gift to my stepdaughter and she just cherishes it. It's the first thing she puts on after her shower and just loves to lounge around in it. Even wears it on chilly summer days. She says its so cozy and warm to wrap around her.
I do love the feel and weight of the bamboo terrycloth--not too heavy, not too light. Very absorbent. Cool to the touch but keeps the skin warm and cozy upon wearing. However, the unisex sizing does not fully work--the robe does not take into account the wider curvature of a typical woman's body versus a man's. The size is great from the waist up, but the robe does not fully close/wrap around at the waist like I would have preferred. My only complaint about the quality is that this robe sheds strings/loose threads like crazy. The terrycloth weave is loose, so the loops get caught on hairbrushes while brushing hair, or anything else rough that you might brush against while walking. For the cost, it is OK, but if I had paid full retail for this robe, I would have sent it back.
I wish there were .5 ratings because I would give this 3.5 stars. Judging by the other reviews on here, I knew the sizing would be difficult to predict on this robe. I am 5'10' and have a wide frame and I am swimming in this thing when it comes to width but certain lengths are very short. The shoulder seams dip half way down my upper arms but the arms themselves are short so much that if the shoulder seams did fit, they would be very short on me. The under arms of the robe dip down nearly to my waist but the robe itself does not reach as low as I would like.I will admit that this is my first expensive, nice robe, so maybe this is the way they are supposed to be and I am just ignorant of that.That being said, the fabric is really nice. It's heavy and warm so more of a cooler weather robe. I am not disappointed enough to return it. The sizing is just really bizarre. I am not sure if I would recommend it to a friend or not so I picked no.
I am very pleased overall with this robe. It is very soft and comfortable, it feels like you are wrapped in a cozy blanket. My only problem with it is the size, it is a one size fits all, and runs quite large. This is the first time I have purchased a bamboo fabric product and I am very pleased with it.
This robe is comfortable and a sure bet if you're looking for a quality bathrobe. It's large--it can fit a 5'8 140lb woman or a 6'1 240lb man...the sleeve length is appropriate for the 5'8 woman but a bit short on the 6'1 man. Great buy!
