Rather than bring towels up and downstairs to the spa, we bought a couple of these robes. They really are excellent quality and the price couldn't be beat. They are great for when you get out of a pool or spa. I ordered two large robes, but one was extra large. That's fine because it is really ample; I'm 5' 5'' and the X-lg comes down to my ankles. The large one is perfect for my husband--mid-calf and plenty of foldover in the front. Even if they shrink in the wash, they'll still be fine. Very pleased with the purchase.
