Recomended Bathrobe-Pinzon Silky-Soft Cotton Bathrobes

Pinzon Silky-Soft Cotton Bathrobe

Bathrobe Features :
  • Plush, lightweight large bathrobe with a soft-as-silk feel, offered in an array of colors
  • Made in Turkey of 70 percent rayon made from bamboo and 30 percent cotton
  • Machine wash and dry
  • Features a shawl collar, sash tie, and deep in-seam pockets
  • Offered in small, medium, large, and extra large; coordinating towels available

This bathrobe blends 70 percent rayon made from bamboo with 30 percent cotton in a 450-grams-per-square-meter weave. Expertly made in Turkey with a patented ply construction of dense, short loops that impart a lightly lustrous look, the robe is as light as silk, but offers far more warmth and absorbency. Details include a shawl collar, a sash tie with belt loops, deep in-seam pockets, and roll-up cuffs. A layer of pretty piqué weave accents the top of the collar, sash, and cuffs for a subtle contrast in texture. The bathrobe is offered in small, medium, large, and extra large in an array of colors. Coordinating bath towels and washcloths are available in the same palette to transform the entire bath experience into a lavish treat. Cleaning is a breeze since bamboo-derived rayon and cotton is safe to wash at home in the washer and dryer. Please note, though, that this fabric can sometimes take a little longer to dry in the dryer after it has been thoroughly soaked in the washer.


The sizing table gives the following measurements for medium and large for Robe Length, Arm to Pit Length, Sweep Circumference, Sleeve Length, Cuff Length, Belt Length:
Medium 49 16-1/8 50 31 14 70
Large 49-3/4 17-3/8 53-1/2 31-3/4 14-1/2 73-1/2

Even though the tag said large, the robe they sent the belt length is 70 inches, cuff seems to be 14, and sleeve length is 31 and arm to pit is about 16-1/8, clearly a medium.

That said, the robe was very soft and seemed well made. Just be careful of the sizing and check it out when it arrives. Other reviewers have said it was sized small, and it may be that they were just incorrectly labeled.

It is soft, absorbent and comfortable. And about one third less than other web sources for a similar robe. Washes well and seems well made. HOWEVER BE WARNED. I am 5' 9" and 190 pounds and an extra large fits perfectly. Be sure to super size your order. If you normally wear an extra large, this one probably won't do the job.
