I bought this for my boss for Christmas. I think she is 5' 8", maybe taller. When I read the review I just figured this would be something that she would be able to wear without the complaints of it being too short. She always complains about things being short in length. The photograph also shows a woman wearing the robe and it clearly goes to her ankles and wrists but not knowing how tall the model is I took a chance that this would be generous. The material is almost like a tea cloth. I bought it with the intention for my boss to take it on a cruise that she had booked. I figured it would be nice to have a robe that doesn't take tons of space in a suitcase. She says she loves it and send me a picture of it hanging next to her shower. It looked very elegant and spa-like hanging there. The blue striped edges give a luxurious touch. Another plus, she says she can wear it while getting ready, doing her hair and makeup without feeling weighed down with a thick robe. She says she gets hot and overheated easily and this doesn't make it worse the way a terry robe would. Plus she said the bulk of her old terry robe used to get in her way but this is so lightweight and easy to move around in. She said it really absorbs too. I wish they would make robes like this for short people like me!
The quality is top notch. I love the terry cloth interior, dense and absorbent. The only thing is that there isn't an inside loop or tie to keep both sides of the robe set in place as you tie the sash. Furthermore, the S/M is more conducive to a small size. I'm a medium (8-10 women's) and it was a little snug with a revealing gap in the front. If you like extra comfort and space in fabric, go a size up.
I LOVE THIS ROBE! It's super comfy, I love that it's made from organic cotton, and best of all the waist tie is sewn to the back, so I don't lose it in the wash -- something that always annoyed me about robes in the past. I can't recommend this enough.
