Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lildarlin Beautiful Robe
I am so pleased with this robe. It is very similar to the one I had before that was a burgundy color and that one is a little heavier. So the pretty blue robe I got from you is really good for any time of year except maybe in the hot summer in California. I even had someone compliment on it and thought it was one of the prettiest robes they had ever seen. Vermont Country Store is the only place I could find a robe like this. Thanks so much.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by MLulu Poor quality material
I am somewhat disappointed in this robe. I was looking for a replacement for a very old worn out robe that was much the same style. I thought I had found it when I found the velour robe on your website. When I received my new robe, I found the material to be far thinner than that of my old robe. It has a silky inside which indicates it is more of a bonded type of material, as opposed to the higher grade woven fabric of my former robe and which is found in most higher end velour robes. I agree with previous reviewer that this poor fabric makes for a robe that is not warm. This new robe is not a good value. Too high priced for what it is. One plus is the color. It is a lovely blue

I have looked for a long zip front velour robe for almost a year. This one is perfect. It is comfy and warm. This is exactly what I was looking for.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by L Lea Too Thin, Not Warm Enough
Disappointed in the weight of this fabric, it is thin and cheap feeling. Also, as many others have reported, the pockets are oddly placed, too far to the back of robe. The sleeves are short, and that is not a problem I have with other robes or tops. The nap of the fabric is upside-down, and feels rough when I run my hand down it.
The pros: Nice and Long (I'm 5'6"), pretty smocking and color (Jade).
Unfortunately these do not outweigh the cons, and I don't understand why Vermont is not responding to the ongoing customer complaints. I would return the robe if not for shipping hassle and cost.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Dinaflower Less than perfect
As has been said, the nap goes the wrong way. Additionally, the design of the robe is lacking. The pockets are badly placed, and the fullness of the back is lacking. There is no ease in the sleeve caps. Result: this is not a garment I want to linger in. Wish I had spent the money on fabric and sewed for myself.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by against the grain velour robe
First of all the velour fabric was more like car seat upholstery than robe material. Secondly, when sewing with a fabric that has nap it is essential to construct the garment with the smooth grain going from the top down. This way if you are wearing the garment and you run your hands down from top to bottom it will feel smooth.This robe was made with the nap running from bottom to top so that when you run your hands down it feels like sandpaper.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Linda C. I love velour robes.
I've been trying to replace my velour robe because it has become worn. This is the 2nd robe that I have gotten to replace it, yours being the last. The robe fits well and is nice, but not as heavy a weight as my old one so I am somewhat disappointed. I am assuming this is a way of saving money, but I would rather have the heavier robe and pay more.
