At first glance I was not impressed. The robe looked as if it had been washed several times....I thought maybe it had been returned. However, in looking closer at the pictures, it be seems to just the way the fabric is made. The only size left was 1X, which typically would be much too large, but it fit. It is really more like a large/xl . You can't help but like it once worn.....it is very warm and fuzzy.
