Women's Zip-Front Fleece Robe
This is a warm, cozy, light robe, but it is nothing like the original.
1. This is a lightweight sweatshirt-like fleece with the fleece on the outside. The original fabric was more substantial and smoother on the outside.
2. The original washed up beautifully every time. This new robe got all fuzzy in the first wash, and even after the second wash, the white stripe has blue fuzz on it.
3. The original robe was a bit too long for me, so I eventually had to take up the hem. This robe is a bit short in length and in the sleeves, and I'm only 5"4".
4. The step-in design with a hip-length zipper feels the same to me.
5. If you want a cozy, lightweight robe, this is fine. If you yearn for a robe like the original, this robe is a disappointment.

A bit disappointed
This fabric is much lighter weight than I expected, so it's not as warm as I thought it would be. I would like the zipper to open further down, to make it easier to step in and out, rather than dragging it over my head as I do now. Not sure how the construction will hold up during future washes - I'll report back later if there are any issues.

It came on time and my wife loves it!! It's not too long and the sleeves are the perfect length. She wears it frequently. I'll probably buy another one next year.

Had a robe that was the same style years ago, this one OK but no where near the quality of the former. A bit disappointed, but I'll use it as it's hard to find robes that aren't tied at the waist or much too roomy if hanging from the shoulders. Sorry that the quality of materials aren't available anymore.

My Mom loved it!
My Mom is a shut-in and wears robes all the time. This is the only one that I found that is long enough and just her style (and her favorite color). She says it's perfect! Thanks for helping make my Mom's Christmas Merry!

Exactly the Robe I borrowed from my sister!
When I was in my teens in the sixties, my older sister had this exact Robe! I always borrowed without asking and she never said anything to me. It was so soft and wonderful. So, I purchased one for her with a note that apologized for being such a selfish teenager!

She Loves It!
I got this as a birthday gift for my wife. She LOVES it! She had been talking for a couple of months about getting a robe like she used to have years ago (that is, like this one) and how hard it was to find at her usual stores. I remembered seeing something like this several years ago when my late mother received the catalogs, so I looked on line & ordered. Then the only thing I had to do before it came was discourage her from going back to an expensive big-name department store where she had seen one for many more $$$.

Comfortable, convenient, warm & EXCEPTIONAL robe
After purchasing many robes in a quest to find one with a front zipper in an attractive color, long enough to reach my ankles AND warm at a reasonable price, I've found PERFECTION! This robe is beautiful, launders well, is a step-zip-and-run item. On those cold mornings (or evenings) when the body has goose bumps from economy-low-heat settings this robe is a MUST HAVE. I can curl up in it with a book and settle down for a quiet and warm read. In case I'm misunderstood: I LOVE THIS ROBE! It doesn't hurt that it was a gift from my talented, handsome and obviously smart son . :>)
