Love The Robe (but Not Velour)
 from San Francisco Bay Area, CA,  Aug 24, 2012

I LOVE bamboo sheets (see my other review), so I had to try this robe. I was afraid after reading the negative review about the thinness, but I'm familiar with bamboo, it's Not like cotton. If you're looking for a "thick plush Turkish-style" robe, bamboo is not for you. This robe is slightly thinner than a good quality bathrobe (30%), but 40% heavier in weight, so I'm happy with the thickness. It's much softer, silkier & warmer than cotton. Like bamboo towels, it doesn't "grab" the water as quickly as cotton, but you won't notice in a robe. It can absorb much more water than cotton & still be warm, and dries much faster (never moldy odor). It says size Large on the tag & it's generous, like a Men's Large. 49"L (from seam at back of neck to hem), 25"W (seam of shoulder to shoulder across back) & 24" (length from shoulder seam to end of sleeve). The black color looks black to me. Wash once before wearing & you won't have trouble with lint after that, and like all bamboo Never use fabric softener or dryer sheets (will decrease absorbency). FYI, it's towel/terry cloth texture, NOT velour. Oh well, you can't have everything :) ! Otherwise, I'm very happy with it!
