You know that robe in the department stores that are so soft you make your friend come over and feel it? Well, this is one of those. Super soft and cozy, this robe keeps you warm and snuggly. It held up ok in the wash, though it did lose some of it's softness - not surprising. Fits true to size, though it hit me at mid calf and could have been a little longer (I'm 5'9', 135 and got a small - I usually wear a 4-6).
