I was hoping to receive a heavy densely woven turkish cotton robe. I was informed this robe is 550 gsm. This robe does not have the density of fibers I was expecting. I, personally am not convinced the gsm is accurate. If it is accurate then the type of cotton strand and the density of the loops are not luxurious. This is a "regular or lighter weight robe". My definition of regular is one you can find anywhere, any department store, not particularly lush in the cotton looping or fiber weaving. I feel this is a textile that needs much more density. Anyway, I was disappointed primarily because of the less dense nature of the robe. It did not fit what I was hoping to buy. It is too much trouble to return as I bought five and the shipping fee back makes that a less desirable option for me. I will give these as gifts and pretend I'm happy giving them. The price I paid was an OK price for an OK robe. I don't feel ripped off. I feel I spent a lot of time researching this product and still after receiving information from the company, did not get a truly luxury product. I've invested too much time now to return these and start shopping again.
I love this robe. Excellent quality and so soft and comfortable. I washed it and didn't notice any shrinkage, it just got softer. I am 5'5" and have plenty of room in the s/m. I would say someone up to 5"8" would have enough length to wear a s/m. I cuffed the sleeves once to make it the right length for my arms.
The robe is ok; not as thick or soft as I had hoped, but a good weight cotton. I also should have chosen a M because of the unisex sizing (usually a womens size 10-12), but it's a good after-bath robe.
