Well, when I first opened the box I was shocked at how beautiful the white, pink and green were. The robe is much prettier than the picture. At first I was a bit disappointed the the fabric seemed flimsy and there were threads hanging off every seam. I clipped off the threads, then washed the robe. The fabric , like magic, firmed up and became a nice thick tightly woven fleece. And, there was no shedding! One negative is that there are no ties inside the robe to keep it closed. But, I am still very pleased with it. I sized up one size because of the other reviews about it not being large enough to close in the front. I recommend it.
