Rated 4 out of 5áby naturalfibersplease Very nice and soft!
I just received this sleep robe and it is amazingly soft.
Considering most walk-in, regular stores are now invaded by nasty stifling synthetic sleepwear, this feels like an absolute treat. 100% super soft cotton - wonderful for a restful night.
I did read the few negative reviews and I think I know where some may be coming from, particularly those who have been shopping at LL Bean for many years and may be used to even higher quality. When I looked at the material in the light, it does look like it may be a tad on the thin side and that it might wear out sooner than it should. As for size, I ordered one size up and while it's a little large, this makes it comfortable for sleeping; if it shrinks, even better.
Then again, this is just a sleep robe. It is a tall order to expect years and years of wear out of a night gown in a world where products like mattresses costing thousands of dollars are manufactured to be changed like socks.
I am not sure how this nightgown is going to hold up but in the meantime, it is the softest I have ever had. Plus 100% cotton (natural fiber!!) - which is an absolute requirement for sleep.
Overall very nice - although I would prefer to pay a little less for sleepwear.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Happy25y Comfortable and pretty
So soft,,,,, I was concerned that this nightgown would look "frumpy" but it certainly does not! I love all the supima cotton products and would like to see sleep shorts and short sleeved sleep shirts in this fabric. I sized up to large as suggested by other reviewers and this worked out fine. For reference, I am 5'4", 135 pounds.

Rated 4 out of 5áby AppalachianDoc Good summer nightwear
Supima cotton, and as soft as the shirts made from it. Lovely feel. Pretty color (Seafoam). Only thing I'd change is the length, a little short.I ordered a second one, and expect to enjoy them for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Zoekat Great for hot weather
This fabric is cool and comfortable in tropical heat. It feels very silky and smooth. I wish it was available in more colors. I would like to buy additional ones in pale pink, yellow, peach or florals.

Rated 3 out of 5áby zgrandma I wanted to love these nightgowns
I have purchased the long nightgowns in the past and I absolutely love them and wanted shorter ones for the summer. I usually wear a 1X but because of the other reviews complaining about the sizing, I ordered 3X. The fabric is wonderful, soft and very comfy. BUT, I am 5'1" and it goes to just above my knee. After washing, it was even worse. I don't know how anybody tall could wear these as a nightgown, maybe a T-shirt. Please make them longer as these will be going back.

Rated 2 out of 5áby aberjona Really poor sizing
Ordered a Misses Large and it's just too small -- a nightgown should be roomy enough so it doesn't "pull" on you at night. Can't imagine how it would fit after washing and drying. I'dve gladly have exchanged this for a Womens 2X to get the roominess I want but that's unavailable -- sold out.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LLBeanLover51 Super comfortable
I ordered this gown, and Bean's terry cloth robe, knowing I would be in both a lot as I recovered from surgery. They are perfect! The gown is soft, comfortable, washes great and is the perfect length. I took other reviewers' advice and ordered a size up (L instead of M) and that worked out perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5áby annabelle5 Comfortable but.....
I love the comfort of the fabric. It feels wonderfully soft! Also the gown appears to be well made, However,,,, it is so short that when I sit down, it rides up and barely covers my bottom. I hate this!
L.L. Bean, could you please add an inch or two to the length?
Then I would buy more. I don't want the full-length gown in hot weather.
