Nicely made light-weight robe
on July 18, 2012
I was looking for a light-weight bathrobe for the summertime and this fits the bill perfectly. It's made of 100% cotton and is about the weight of a good bed sheet -- thick enough to maintain one's modesty when it's being worn, but thin enough so that you don't overheat when the weather is warm (or, due to the current heat wave, unbearably hot).
The robe is well-made, with nice, tight stitching throughout. There are two hip pockets and one breast pocket. The sash is fastened to the robe in the back so it can't fall off. I especially like that the lapels are narrow -- others that I saw had wide lapels that didn't look right to my eye.
The fit is nice. I'm 6 foot 2, 165 pounds, and the large/x-large size fits very well. It's roomy enough so I don't feel constrained, but not so baggy that I feel like I'm wearing a sack. The sleeves are a perfect fit, which is unusual for me with bathrobes. It's knee-length.
I've washed it a few times and it came through just fine -- no shrinkage or seam problems. Since it is cotton it comes out of the dryer pretty wrinkled. I don't bother ironing it (it's a bathrobe, after all), but if you like crisp lines in your robe you'll need to spend some time with an iron.
Highly recommend this if you're looking for a lightweight summer robe.
