The terry is nice & thick, soft cotton. The fit of the small/medium was very generous...It was on the long side, loose, and the sleeves needed rolled. Better too big than too small. However, I bought this to be used as a BATH robe. In other words, I put it on after a bath or shower, instead of using a towel. One side of this SHOULD have extra fabric to allow for overlapping so that it can be securely tied shut, with no worries of coming open. This is not the case. There is very little overlap & certainly no extra. It just closes in the middle. I'm not a big person (about an 8). Considering the generous sizing, I could not have sized up without it being humongous. I can't use this robe. I know it would just come open if I walked around in it at all. No one needs to see that. Trust me. Anyway, I have this packed up to return...Just waiting for UPS to pick it up.
