I've had this robe a little less than a year and literally live in it. When I ordered it, I was made aware by reviewers that it was oversized. I figured, if I didn't like it, my son could use it. Not a chance! This robe is so soft and comfortable, and the belt is conveniently sewn in. In addition, it looks just as good after it is laundered in cold water. And I like it oversized....perfectly cuddles me when I curl up for a book or dvd and makes me feel sexy when I'm dressing up for an evening out. I'm planning on ordering another one soon.
