Fabric is very soft, but thinner than I would have preferred. Sizing is pretty generous, meaning big. I'm a size 14 and this is quite large on me. At 5'8" I even think I need to shorten the sleeves a bit. The pocket placement is almost useless because it wraps so far around me that it covers one pocket entirely and leaves the other pocket right in the middle of the front. Inset pockets on side seems would be more useful. I just use it straight out of the shower before dressing so it does the basics of covering and keeping me warm, but I don't like it nearly as well as the robe it is replacing.....which was a cheaper robe I bought years ago. If you want something to wrap over pjs it would be better.
