This is the second plush polyester bathrobe I have had. It, like the previous one, tends to "pill" after washing, but I really think that is just the nature of polyester fleece. I just trim off the "pills" and after enough machine washing and drying, the "pilling" goes away leaving the robe still soft and warm and snuggly. The robe is reasonably well made. I did have to sew back a bit of one pocket where the stitches had come loose, but "no big deal". Compared to several similar robes at a couple department stores that I had previously tried on, this robe was lighter, softer, and fit better. It was also half the price. I originally planned to give this as a gift, but decided to go with a different "fancier" brand for the gift. I am keeping this for myself however, as I think it is a good deal for the price.
