This robe does not absorb water like most microfiber items do. I expected it to dry me quickly without rubbing or any effort. I ran it through a hot water wash hoping that would increase the absorbancy...not much luck. It's pretty and soft but it doesn't do what I expected it to do.
This is a good value for the money... a nice warm and soft robe. My gf liked it a lot.

The softness of the fabric makes this robe sensual. The color is attractive - I bought the light blue - and the style is classic. The problem lies in the sizing. The robe this one was purchased to replace and all the other robes I have owned in recent years have been XXL. I have lost 70 lbs. and thought a 1-2 X would be comfortable. When the robe arrived I checked the label for size before unfolding it and trying it on. The label showed "1-2X". The fit was so tight that there was a 12" gap in the center front. I repacked it, but realized it would make a nice birthday present for a friend who is a size 8/10. She really loves it.
After doing some research and reading a review on Overstock that matched my situation, this product was the one I went with. It is SUPER SOFT! My significant other has been using my robe which has been way too big for her, and left me feeling cold in the mornings. She is very picky about things like this........to say the least, but she loves it. It is also warmer than my other plush microfiber robe. If you are looking for a super soft, plush, lightweight, and very warm robe......I highly recommend this one.
This is the most wonderful dressing gown. It's incredibly soft and comfortable, but it's too short. I am average height (5' 7") and it only comes to mid-calf. The only downside of the fabric is that even with just my phone in the pocket it stretches.
You know that robe in the department stores that are so soft you make your friend come over and feel it? Well, this is one of those. Super soft and cozy, this robe keeps you warm and snuggly. It held up ok in the wash, though it did lose some of it's softness - not surprising. Fits true to size, though it hit me at mid calf and could have been a little longer (I'm 5'9', 135 and got a small - I usually wear a 4-6).
