I've been looking for a chenille robe with a set in waist for quite a while. when I found this one I was ecstatic until I read some reviews talking of bleeding and excess shedding. I've found none of that to be true. it's gorgeous, washes up beautifully, and the color is much prettier, softer than the picture. I did size up. got a large vs. a medium. I am 5'3 size 10. hope that helps. couldn't be happier!

The last chenille robe I had lasted 10+ years - I hope this one will do the same. Great color. The texture of the collar and cuffs adds to the overall effect. And it is nearly floor length ... yea!

I'm a baby boomer! And being a baby boomer I remember quality, products that not only served their purpose, but lasted years & years.
I grew up in a time when Chenille bedspreads & bathrobes were all the rage. And for good reason! Not only is Chenille beautiful, but it's warm & functional.
I had a Chenille bathrobe as a girl & managed to find another one many years ago. I literally wore it out I had it so long. And for years I've been searching for another one. I wanted the Chenille bathrobes I grew up with; full length, warm, & beautiful. I decided since the stores didn't carry them to search the internet. TA..DA!! I found Vermont Country Store. "Oh my goodness, can it really be? A floor length Chenille bathrobe?" Yes it was! I was so excited I almost burst. I ran & told my husband "I found my Christmas present, I found it!" He looked up & asked "well?" "A Chenille bathrobe, a full length Chenille bathrobe...in turquoise." "Oh please, I've wanted another one for sooo long." His reply was if I wanted it, get it! It took me less than 10 seconds to add it to my cart! I didn't know I could still move that fast!! FINALLY...I found my Chenille bathrobe & it was on its way. When the package arrived it was everything I could do to not rip it open before I hit the door! But I waited till Christmas. I was like a 5 year old on Christmas Eve. "Come on morning!"
When I opened it...oh my, it was love! I put on my brand new, just as I remember, full length Chenille bathrobe in turquoise and just melted into my chair. I no more wanted to take it off then the man in the moon. But alas, company coming, dinner to cook, hopefully they'll leave soon and back into my Chenille bathrobe I go!! Needless to say, many days I crawl into its comfort as soon as dinner is done or put off chores till the very end. I LOVE MY CHENILLE ROBE!! What am I saying? I LOVE VERMONT COUNTRY STORE for giving me a dream come true! Thank you Vermont Country Store. XOXO Please always carry Chenille bathrobes!!
And hubby's, if you want that extra special gift for your darling, buy her Chenille! She'll love you forever because a girls best friend isn't diamonds...it's Chenille!!

My last review mentioned the fit, not for everyone, bleeding of color in the wash, length of time to dry after washing. I now add that there is blue lint everywhere I walk, it sheds as much as my pets do.

I live in my robe every morning. This is exactly what I was looking for. I like the fitted feel and
the material is not too bulky, the only thing I would change is the length, just add another
couple of inches to cover my ankles and it would be perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by JJill Pros and Cons
Pros: It is warm. If you like form fitting clothes and are long waisted you will like this robe.
Cons: Not color fast, be prepared to use extra water, time and energy to launder this robe separately. The set-in waist feels restrictive and the tie is sewn in place. The pockets are heavy chenille and take extra time to dry. The cuffs have stitches that secure them in place and also take extra time to dry. The label, though set low on the shawl collar is irritating. With magnification, strong light and extra fine sharp scissors I was able to remove the offending label and remove the stitches on the cuffs. The cuffs are heavy enough to stay in place without the stitches and can be adjusted to fit better if you have long arms.

Chenille robes are getting hard to find, and when you do most are of poor quality. This is not one of those robes! Beautifully made, substantial fabric, full length, shaped waist with a long, attached tie belt, pockets...did I mention the gorgeous color? Even my husband noticed! Thank you VCS for making the hard-to-find item available!
