When I ordered this robe, I had it sent to my daughter's house for me to use during a recent visit. I asked her to launder it before my arrival. So after a ride through the washer and dryer, it was ready for me to use and it's everything I could ask for! I was a little concerned about the sizing when ordering, but it's VERY roomy and exactly what I wanted. The Turkish terry is very absorbent but it's not so heavy that you feel like you can't move in it. For the extremely reasonable price, this is a wonderful product!
