Premium Silk Charmeuse Robe for Her
I'm 5'2" and need Plus Petite which WS does not carry so unless tied, the robe drags. However, I'm more concerned with the quality -- it's rather thin and I'm not sure how it will stand up to washing. Reminds me of silk pillowcases which didn't last a year through very careful washing. It arrived rather wrinkled so I had to steam and seems as though it won't travel well. Since I purchased on sale and with a discount, it's not worth returning.

Frumpy cut, garment is shapeless, and color is pallid

It not feminine.
I hated this robe from the moment I opened the package. First of all, it's not new, it was all rumpled, and not crisply clean. Then I put it on. There was no kind of fit, just a boxy robe. Also, the color is totally bland. I really did not like this robe. I've just returned it.

sad to have to send this back--but too poorly made
I really wanted to like this robe. Good aspect was the material felt marvelous. But the deficiencies overwhelmed this small good part.
Fit: I'm an average sized person, and proportional from top to bottom (size 10 jeans). The shoulders and sleeves of this robe fit normally to loosely. It just didn't have enough of an overlap in the front to be comfortable. If I sat down in a chair (something that would likely happen on occasion while in this robe), it barely would have covered my knees. It needed another 6-12 inches of material horizontally. Merely getting a larger size would not help. And it would still have THIS problem:
Value: For the price this cost, I would expect the facings on the front edges to be sewn down, not flapping loose. The top-stitching wasn't enough to keep the facings from opening up. One washing and it would have been even worse, I fear. A warm robe I got locally for half this price had sewn-down facings, which looked fine.
Like I said, I really wanted to like this robe. It would have been wonderful for spring, summer and fall days when warmth wasn't needed, just a silky smooth robe that felt so feminine. As soon as I figure out how to send it back, I'll be doing so. Two stars only because the material felt so good. Very disappointed in this product. Spa-quality? Hardly.

I really debated on which robe to order and wish I had ordered one with an attached belt. I will have to sew this one on as there is no way it's gonna stay with the robe! Otherwise it is very nice in the teal

This is my second silk bathrobe - I am hooked on silk! The first a gray cloud color but not as good quality fabric, and various components broke pretty early on. This one is longer, a gorgeous apricot color, and the perfect summer robe I have been needing! Silk is so lightweight and yet so warm and comfortable.
My one issue with silk is how slippery it is. On the previous bathrobe, I sewed a snap so it would hold closed at the neckline (and I also double-tie the interior string and the belt to keep them from opening). On this one, since I love it and want to keep it for years, I think I will sew on several snaps - a few at the closing and at least one on the inside. I don't think this will detract from the appearance at all.
NONE of my summer bathrobes have ever fastened properly anyway! My winter ones zip all the way up and never come open. That probably wouldn't be attractive in silk, but I do want closure!

Very light silk
For $99 I was expecting a heavier silk, but this is extremely lightweight fabric and not at all "spa quality". The color (pink) was true to the advertising, and the fit appeared right, but it was just too light for me. I returned mine weeks ago (still waiting for the refund), but if you want a very lightweight robe, then this may be what you're looking for.
