This robe is so awesome, I want one in every color
I inherited this robe (plum color) from my sister, and I can't believe how incredibly comfortable it is. It's like a long sweatshirt jacket, so IMO it's all right to wear about town if you're running errands, etc. Not what I'd wear on a date or to work, but still okay to go about the place. I practically live in this robe! I'm hoping to eventually get one in every color in my size. Runs big. Mine's a 2X and it's very roomy.
My sister and I have purchased a total of four of these long sweatshirt hoodies. We wear them for outerwear. Because the weather is quite cool we have zipped two together to make a reversible coat. We are very warm and wherever we go people compliment us on how nice we look. We love everything about these hoodies and wish they came in black and white as well.
I have one of these robes that I have had for many years. It is still in good shape and so soft and comfortable that I can't let it go even tho it is way too big now. When the zipper broke, I ordered this one. It will be a while before it is "broke in" but I know it will be around for a long time.
Bathrobe - came just in time We have had the coldest wheather I can remember ! I have slept in my robe on these freezing nights !!!!! It sure keeps me warm ! Even my comforter wasn't keeping me warm enough With my robe and socks on - never Done before - I'm snuggled in warm As a cup of hot chocolate !! Thanks
I bought this full length, zip-front hoodie robe as a Christmas gift for my teen daughter who is a very casual dresser. She loves the way it feels as well as not having to worry about buttons falling off or a belt coming untied.
Love this robe. I never had a robe with a hood before, but I love it. The hood is really nice if I have to step outside in the cold to get mail ect..It also has nice size pockets which is always a plus in a robe and it is very warm. Favorite robe I have ever owned.
After reading some comments regarding the low quality of the sewing, I was afraid to order but figured I'm a good seamstress and could mend seams. When it arrived IN THREE DAYS, it was thin velour with a slight pucker in the material mid point at the zipper. NO BIG DEAL. Everything else was soft, DID NOT SHED, and it hit the top of my toes: I'm 5'5". I ordered two sizes too large because my jammies are not the silky type. They're thicker flannel. So I didn't want any restriction from a too-tight robe. I needn't have worried, but if I had gotten my true size, I would not have been happy.
The Large measures 27" armhole to armhole and it goes straight to well below the pockets where it starts to widen. It should start to widen immediately. It feels crooked when wearing and the pocket area has to be pulled to front to use. Unless you are one of the rare person who is straight from the armhole down either order a much larger size or skip this robe. Too bad since the material is nice.
Not heavy enough to wear in the winter - at least not the winter we're having this year. It will do me fine for the spring, summer and fall. I can just feel that hood pulled up this summer when the a/c comes on and I'm sitting in one of the chairs with the register blowing on me. Think I'm going to love them. Actually bought two so I'm going to be twice as happy.
I've bought 4 of these & have given as gifts. They are so comfortable! It's like having a bathrobe on without the embarrassment if you have unexpected company! The pocket for my cell phone is very convenient. The zipper is well made, & these are very warm over your nightgown in winter. I tend to purchase only 100% cotton clothing & I wish these were, although I've not had any pilling from the cotton/poly blend. I'm 5'7 155 lbs & like oversized comfort so usually buy clothing in LG, but having purchased one in LG it was very big so I buy these in MEDIUM for perfect comfort size.
Sweatshirt material pills easily. I will just use my fabric shaver. I bought three. The first was way too large. The medium was still large but I like being able to put my knees up in them. I like the dark grey and navy.
I own one robe, gave 2 as gifts. One reviewer stated she cuts off the hoods and asked who wears a hood in the house? I do! I keep my house a bit chilly, and I love to wear this robe when I nap because I put the hood up to keep me warm - so warm and cozy! I probably would not have bought it had it not come with a hood. I don't have any problems with pilling either. The length is perfect, arms are great, fit is on target. Have nothing but good to say. Wish I could afford another.
This is my second robe; I do like when new, it is soft and warm. My biggest complaint is after a lot of washings, it pills ALOT, loses some of it's softness and doesn't look very good; however, since I'm just wearing around the house, it's fine.
This particular purchase was a Christmas Gift from my husband. Perfect gift. Over the years, I have bought many of these robes. I love them and they are just perfect for cold New England weather. I am tall and they are long enough and the sleeve length is perfect. The are warm and comfortable with being bulky or heavy. Love them!!!!
