Quilted Full-Length Flannel Robe
I have mixed feelings on this. I love the snaps, the fabric, and the ankle length. It is cut tight under the arms. There needs to be more room there. Also, from the quilting, it is 'prickly' to my skin if I do not have pajamas on. It is pretty over a gown. I am a size 8 and got a medium. If I had gotten a large due to under the arms, it would have been just too much fabric.

I love my new bathrobe. I've searched for years for an old fashioned cotton quilted bathrobe and finally found it here at Vermont Country Store. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

warm and cozy
Note:It is a fabulous bathrobe for a cold evening when you are settled down reading, etc. But as for running around the house it is too big and bulky. I generally would prefer a zipper to snaps. Also, a nylon lining would make it easier to slip on over a flannel nightgown. But for warm, dry, soft warmth, it is tops. But almost too overwhelmingly big and cozy for anything but true hibernation!

It's just me!
This robe is wonderufully warm and in this bizarre cold wave I appreciate it so much. It's just me thou, and I understand how some women may not want their robes to interfer with walking and land around their ankles, but I noticed immediately after I washed the robe that my ankles were cold and so were my wrists. I simply want an old fashioned bathrobe that goes to my ankles and goes to my wrists and keeps me warm until I get dressed. I will send the robe to my sister in the midwest who is shorter and smaller than I am and who should fit with this robe perfectly. I will continue to shop at Vermont Country Store because they are honest, sell great merchandise, and have wonderful customer service.

This robe is very warm cozy. I usually wear a medium (10-12) but I ordered large because of reviews saying it would shrink in the wash. It did shrink, and now the shoulders are about right (I am if anything on the narrow side) and the body is huge. Two of me could fit in here. It feels like I'm wearing a king size quilt or talking around inside a small tent. I actually kind of like it, but ideally it would not be so roomy.

product is well made and WARM!
This is my second order for the same item..the first I ordered in a medium and that was too small...instead of returning for exchange I just re-ordered and returned the first order. I did this because I needed it right away for a trip I was going on. I know I will always get good service from VCT and am sure I will be ordering in the future. Thanks for your service. The robe surpassed my expectations.

Coziest robe EVER.
This is really the coziest robe I have ever had: EVER. I am always cold, but not in this robe. You will have to get a size larger because it will shrink, quite a bit. I had to get an x large, which is a bit too big, but I do not care. I LOVE THIS ROBE and am sorry I did not know about it years ago. The light color does allow it to gather spots quickly and it is in the washer way too often. All I am afraid of is they will stop making it and I will be cold again!

Best Robe in the whole wide world!
I have owned this robe for a few years now. I love it. It is so warm on chilly mornings. The sleeve length is perfect and the high neck keeps the chill away. The only draw back is there should be more colors and darker colors. I read my newspaper in it while drinking my morning tea and the newsprint has stained the front.
Never ever discontinue this style, just make it in more prints and colors
