Rated 5 out of 5Â by Coastal Carolina Great robe, wonderful cotton Percale
Living in coastal SC I need to replace my seersucker robe purchased from Vermont County store. It was time for a change (I did love the seersucker robe though).
I read all the reviews and decided that since I love cotton percale sheets it was time to try this robe. I am not disappointed and would recommend to friends/family.
Let me start off by saying that I am 5'8', weighing 127lbs. The robe just hit my ankles, belt loops & inside ties hit my waist exactly, plenty of room to move around while not being too large, the sleeve length however was short (not a problem was I tend to cuff up my sleeves anyway). The cotton percale, while some complained of wrinkles after washing, I did not find this to be true. I washed robe upon receiving it (horrible packaging odor) in warm water on Perm Press cycle and dried on Perm Press cycle. I do believe that because this is how I washed it it did not wrinkle too much at all and did not shrink. Side pockets are so small that a single tissue won't stay inside, but for me this is not a issue. I love this robe !!!!
The fabric is not too heavy, not too thin. Ordered the sage blue plaid, colors are subtle, refreshing combo.
I would reorder this robe again when the time comes, if it lasts as long as the seersucker robe did for me it will be awhile.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MsDoone I'm disappointed
I love the print on this robe. The overall look coming out of the package is terrific. It is very well made and I was prepared to love it. However, this robe comes out of the dryer extremely wrinkled. I don't need a robe that looks like someone ironed it but this is excessive. At first I thought maybe there were too many clothes in the dryer with it so I ran it through alone and it was just as bad. It was disappointing. Is it functional - absolutely. However, at that price I expected something that also looked nice. Sadly this robe falls short of the mark.

I wanted 100% cotton and light weight. This robe is perfect and looks great. It is 100% cotton, so wash it before you wear it and iron it! It will look great and feel amazing. Thanks! Nice product!

I was looking for a light 100% cotton robe, which are hard to find, and am satisfied enough with this to not send it back, however the drape is not smooth. It gathers and hangs like a sheet wrapped around me, a cotton sheet that is wrinkled.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by picky old lady It was so huge!
I ordered the robe in 1x, and when I got it, I looked at it thinking I'd been shipped King sized sheets instead of a robe! This robe has seriously mis-marked sizing, I would have called this 1x as at least a 6x or more.
The fabric felt wonderful and the color was exactly what I expected. Unfortunately, there weren't any more in green. Next year, I'll try again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Autumn Girl Classic Cotton Comfort
I, too, have been looking for a good summer robe for a long time. The search is over! Often, I find summer robes to be skimpy, stretchy, or overly warm. This robe, in the other hand, is cool and classic! The 100% cotton is smooth and breathable, and the cut is generous without being sloppy. I appreciate the two inconspicuous sites of belt loops that guarantee that the belt fits me properly as well as the longer length. I ordered the cream color with light blue piping. I'm so happy that the Vermont Country Store has begun making sleepwear from this lovely fabric.

I was hoping that this robe would replace one that I've had and loved for maybe 25 years. The one I have is still in good shape except the facings don't lie flat. This robe is very similar to the one I have. It is long, has piping, and has a classic shape. It's not made quite to the same standard but very close. The big downfall of this one is that the fabric is wrinkled--almost dimpled--after washing. I want a fabric that doesn't wrinkle (65%polyester and 35% cotton)and is cool. I'm willing to mail my current robe to Vermont Country store to see if they could duplicate it. It is a classic and would be a best seller, I'm certain. One other thing: the color described as white is more of an ecru. Please offer it in blue and pink also. I don't care for plaids.

I have been looking for a robe like this for a long time. It's perfect for summer seasons or warm weather states. The robe runs true to size. The fabric is very nice.
