I'm so glad I got this robe, I was also considering Salbakos terry robe, but this is much better quality then terry cloth. It is so soft, like putting on a high end towel after a shower. As soon as I put it on I am instantly dry. I don't even use a towel to dry myself anymore. It is very luxurious and absorbent. I washed it as soon as I took it out of the package. It came out great after the wash and much softer. It fits great too. I'm 5'2 and it comes to my ankles. I absolutely love this bath robe.
