This robe is very thick and soft. It is great for after showering because the inside is like a terry cloth, but the outside is soft and plush. The only problem with the robe is the sizing. I was not sure what size to buy for my husband so I went with the l/xl. He is not a big guy or small either, but the robe is huge. I would go with the small size unless you are very tall or weigh over 200lbs. All and all, the robe is very nice other than the wrong size I bought.
