I feel I should have ordered a 3X. The robe does not fully overlap at the bottom as I would have liked. I love the quality of hte cotton. I plan to order a larger version of the same robe in the future if my weight remains the same. Since I've lost weight and now can wear a size 20 in most women sizes I underestimated the fit. I've washed it since purchase. I' m happy to report it did not shrink.
