I thought the length was longer than expected. We do not feel that was a bad thing at all. (and the lengths are provided for each size, but I had not noticed that)

My Husband absolutely loved it. And I find the price appropriate as we love the quality. It is hard to find decent quality these days, everyone is cutting back, trying to please the consumer with lower cost. But there are some of us out there that don't mind paying a little more for quality, and I am one of them.

I am jealous, having bought myself a robe at LL Bean 6 months ago that does not come near the quality of this one. I will have to wait a bit to get a replacement robe, but when I do, I will come to your company.

DO NOT BUY!!! Sheds like crazy & starts falling apart after just one light wash. After wearing it once, it looked like a yarn factory exploded all over my shirt. Since I ordered burgandy red, my wife says it looks like I've been slaughering sheep. I have 2 year-old towels that look better after 100 washes.

Brand new, the robe looks great. It is thick & warm. The colors are good. They run a little long in the sleave & total length, but otherwise fit well. The double cuffs may look nice, but they're a tad inconvenient (don't wash late-night dishes & be careful brushing your teeth) It seemed pretty good except for the terrible shedding..

To alleviate the shedding, I gave it a light wash and found an amazing amount of loosed material in the filter basket, more than a washer full of new cotton towels. Into the drier it went. When it came out, the seams all had loose, hanging threads & the fabric was covered with burgandy-red balls of lint, making the shredding even worse.

In summary, the robe looks good new, but poor quality. If you insist on buying it, buy white only and don't wear on top of dark clothes. (The thousands of white lint balls are harder for the eye to see than colored lint balls) However, my best advice is DO NOT BUY.

If it's too late & you already bought it, delay washing it & use a lint roller to grab as much loose threads & lint as you can. When you must finally wash it, you can use a sweater shaver, a sharp scissors (for the loose threads) and a lint brush to put it back into usable condition. It will take over one hour of work, but at least you won't have to toss it in the trash.

I was looking for a medium-heavy terry robe to replace a wonderful, but worn out one. The first robe I wanted was backordered and this was my second choice. The reviews were mixed, but I crossed my fingers. I loved it until it was first laundered. Strings began to bloom all over the robe and after that first washing it just looked ratty. It looks more ratty now. I have taken to snipping the long threads from inside and outside of it and I can't believe I wasted hard-earned money on something whose quality rivals that of something in a dollar store. It is warm and fits me well, but the material should not shred like that, especially after only one washing. My advice? Keep looking.

I ordered the 1 XL size and it hits me about 6 inches above the floor, I'm 6 foot 1 inch tall and was tired of wearing robes that seemed like they were made for hobbits, so that was nice. It's also thick, heavy weight (really heavy) and comfortable.

I washed this before I wore it in a front loader (gentle cycle) washer, cold water and then dried it on low heat per instructions. The washer had no lint trapped at all, (yes guys the washer has a lint trap) and the dryer had a smallish/reasonable amount of white fuzzy lint. Not really bad considering it was a brand new cotton garmet of such a large size.

After removing it from the dryer I checked it for signs of it falling apart as others had noted. Sure enough the robe had a hole in the shawl collar through which you could easily pass a quarter. My wife sewed that up by hand.

We checked the rest of the seams and found nothing else in immediate need of repair, but it just didn't look securely made, and we thought it might end up unraveling over time after repeated washings. So just for peace of mind, we went ahead (by "we", I mean my lovely wife did all the work) and reinforced the stiching. It was a long slow process on the machine due to the thickness of the material, but now I have a robe as it should have been made in the first place.

Considering I couldn't really find anything else equivalent of a satisfactory size and design, I'm okay with what we got. And after our upgrades, I'm really quite happy with it. But we shouldn't have had to do the factory's work for them to make this a quality garment.

This bathrobe felt great to my hand, but I realized it was way too big. I was able to return it with without a problem, but their refund was only half the price of the robe. $40.00 out of $80.00. It's their policy. I should have read the policy when I bought it, but didn't. You better be sure it's exactly right if you order it,and don't buy two planning to return the one that doesn't work for you.

This is a good robe. It's thick as advertised, comfortable and warm. It is a high quality item.

My only gripe is in washing it the first time, it shrunk a little more than I expected. I like the robe to be a sloppy fit, it was before washing, it's a little more snug now.

I looked at a lot of robes in my local area but could not find any heavy cotton ones. I live in rural Ohio where it is snowy and cold. This robe is nice and heavy and full of warmth. I wear it out of the shower, when I get up in the middle of the night, and in the morning when I get up before dressing for work while having my coffee. It is very comfortable, heavy, and warm. It is also big and long. I bought it a size bigger knowing that it will shrink in time. So, a size bigger is definitely bigger. I have washed it once, and it has only shrunk a little bit. This is probably the most comfortable robe that I have owned.

Very nice robe and well worth the money. I would have rated it 5 stars if not for the extremely long sleeves and heavy double cuffs. They will have to be cut off to avoid knocking things over and wiping off plates, etc. I realize that it's hard to make a one size fits all and this is not a complaint, but I can barely see my finger tips the way it is. I will however take heed to the other comments and wash and shrink it before cutting the sleeves down.

I love this Robe!! It is wonderful. I ordered 2. One for me, and one for my husband. Both of us are Plus size, 3x. I have to say that this will more than likely fit someone 4x-6x. I personally was pleased with its size, but someone that is wanting it to fix perfect should order a smaller size than they are. I washed both right away. I there was minimal shedding on both. I have noticed in wearing it, they snag quite easily, that is the only con I have found thus far. Also, This robe shows that it is mid calf length, well I am 5'6 and it reaches the ground. My hubby is 6' and his reaches his ankles. Enjoy :)
