I bought this for my brother-in-law for Christmas. He LOVED it. However, after wearing it after showering a few times and letting it air dry in the bathroom, he decided to wash it. He washes everything in cold water...but the dryer shrunk the thing. It shrunk so much that the XL robe I bought can now fit my petite sister :/ Thats the downside of buying online. Its not like I can bring it back to the store now and exchange it for a new one. I know he should have read the care instructions, but most things cotton these days, are pre-shrunk! and if you don't dry it, it doesn't keep its softness. All in all, it was good while it lasted (about 2 weeks).
