The softness of the fabric makes this robe sensual. The color is attractive - I bought the light blue - and the style is classic. The problem lies in the sizing. The robe this one was purchased to replace and all the other robes I have owned in recent years have been XXL. I have lost 70 lbs. and thought a 1-2 X would be comfortable. When the robe arrived I checked the label for size before unfolding it and trying it on. The label showed "1-2X". The fit was so tight that there was a 12" gap in the center front. I repacked it, but realized it would make a nice birthday present for a friend who is a size 8/10. She really loves it.
