Warm, flattering, soft, and light!
on April 11, 2015
This is the robe I've been looking for. I had ordered a verrrry thick (and equally long) terry robe a few weeks earlier and just found the extreme weight of it to be offputting every time I reached for it. I thought - I do need the warmest robe (and full ankle length) I can find, but does it really have to be SO heavy? Then I went searching and found THIS robe - got it today and it envelopes my body wonderfully just like the terry robe, but it's LIGHT. Thick, plush and light. I am every bit as warm, but far more comfortable, and it has a really good quality fluffy texture -- doesn't look cheap or tacky as some micro fiber or synthetic robes I've seen which have more of the look of fake fur or a skimpy uneven pile or a "trailer trash" look; grungy, old and lived in from day one. No, this robe looks luxurious and evokes a spa, and somehow as thick as it is, it even manages not to make you look enormous, that part was a surprise.
The only thing I would wish if for another 2-3 inches in length. I am 5'9", 140 pounds, and ordered the large. I really couldn't go with X or XX Large just for more length - the bottom of the robe comes to 7 inches from the ground (or 3 inches from my ankles) - pretty much like the photo of the man - it doesn't come as far down as the one the woman is wearing (clearly she's shorter). I get that robe makers can't please everyone and I'm somewhat tall for a woman so they can't make robes long enough for me that would drag the floor for other women. But I wish it was longer anyway. I do feel the draft on the few inches of my exposed ankles. And no I don't want to bend my aching back in the morning to struggle with pulling on socks in the morning before I have my coffee. The whole point of a robe and slippers is you just stumble groggily and slip easily into them and done - an all-in-one solution. Oh well, otherwise this robe is as good as it gets - I combed the entire internet comparing them all.
