I bought this robe for my 7, going on 8, little granddaughter. She is actually quite tiny and I think I got her a size 7. So, I say it fit "as expected" and that is a little large for her. I did want it to be sufficiently large so that she could wear it for more than one winter season. I got pink because her favorite color is pink. And this pink is just gorgeous! Not too pale, not too dark. Perfect. And the robe itself is just wonderfully cozy and plush. To say she loves it is an understatement! I don't think she took it off for two days. She wore it over her clothes during the day and then slept in it at night! And it looks fantastic on her. Yes, we love it. I would buy it again! Great price. Beautiful robe!
