When I first received it, it was everything I expected it to be.... Soft, oversized, just super comfortable. I also have two black labs and every time I tried to order, , my first choice of purple was unavailable. So, finally, I finally just chose the only color available at the time, the white/ivory. Despite my concerns of it showing constant dog hair ( used to it ), I figured I could just toss it into the wash a couple times a week and put it on a low setting of warm. The very first time it came out, it had multiple little tears along the seams of the robe, which surprised me. I stitched them up myself and tried to wash it once again, this time I ran it alone ( waste of water) on gentle warm and again on low warm. This time it came out with HOLES in the fabric in different areas ( size of a nickel ). I do not use Bleach in my home as my skin is too sensitive but I have always safely used 12 Mule Borax, which is a wonderful additive to put in your laundry. It's a water softener, keeps whites from getting grey and dingy, and ensures a clean rinse. And, my husband and I only sleep on Egyptian Cotton sheets and nothing like this has ever happened. In the end, and in great disgust, my once wonderful robe was cut up and we now use pieces of it for furniture rags. I don't know if I got a bad one, or their QC is not monitored, but for almost $60, I should be still be cozy and warm in my originally received robe! Very disappointed, wouldn't buy again, wouldn't recommend, and in the event that Overstock or the manufacturers in INDIA care, perhaps better care instructions than "machine washable". That could mean a lot of things to different buyers.
It is rather on the large size but so comfy and cozy. I love that the belt is attached. I'm 5'5" and wear size 8-10 and this wraps around me with the pockets meeting up close Togther in the front. Love how deep the pockets are great to hold my cellphone when I'm sitting on my porch in the morning waiting for my dog to finish her business. I bought the navy and it is a beautiful dark blue like sapphire. I don't mind that the robe is large it makes for more room to layer pajamas underneath on cold winter mornings. I would buy again. Also I've owned this robe a 3 years now and it hasn't faded and still looks like new. No one would know it's as old as it is 😉
This is a great robe for three seasons, a little too think for winter. It washes/drys very well. I like that the tie comes from the sides and doesn't wrap around; so they are always in the right place. Just wish it had pockets. I wear it almost every day except during winter.
