I wanted something that was not heavy, not knee length and not floor length. This robe is exactly what I wanted! On top of that the belt is sewn on in the back and it has two patch pockets. I originally ordered it for myself a few months ago and now just ordered one for my daughter in law for Christmas. The cotton feel is as if it was brushed. And as usual Overstock delivers without delay. I love Overstock and will continue to use them.
