Rated 1 out of 5 by Islandrosie Fleece is sleazy
I have a robe, purchased years ago, and wanted to replace it. Imagine my disappointment to discover that the quality of the fleece has diminished so much! The robe today is so cheap feeling that I could not buy one.
Is there no fleece available that is heavier? Or is there some other reason that the original has been replaced with such lightweight goods?

Rated 3 out of 5 by NMME Too large, again
This a very warm, comfy, robe, but I returned a regular size last year because it was Very large. This year, I bought a petite robe and it is still too large. I have rolled up the sleeves and need to lift the hem when using the stairs. My husband is worried that I will be injured. I am 5' 4", not too petite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oldsters Men men men - FABULOUS robe for short men.
My husband is 5'5" - absolutely no man's robe fits him. Ladies, this robe in a color such as navy, is perfect. I got him the petite medium - he wears small to medium shirts. He is so happy. None of those droopy sleeves they put in those "kimono" style robes that get in their breakfast. The overall length is perfect--just above his slippers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trfMN I LOVE THIS ROBE
I have had this robe for over 10 years and it does not wear out! I wish it did so I would buy another one! It is warm, comfortable and it is the best robe you can buy, worth every cent. I am buying the Mens version for my hubby for Christmas. His LL Bean terry cloth one he has had for over 20 years is looking its age so he can enjoy this one. Great quality & washes well. I can't say enough. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by BabiB teddy bear cozy
I was looking for a new winter robe to replace an old, heavy terry one. L.L.Bean was the only place I could find an ankle length robe. I actually had to return the regular length one for a petite (I'm barely 5ft. 4in.) I love the raspberry color, and I was pleased with the first washing and drying. It dried in 20 mins. as opposed to my old terry that took over an hour. My only con is that the fleece reminds me of a teddy bear. I wish it was a bit smoother.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lookingforfitinwa Plus Size built for Man's Frame
I love the nice, thick fleece, and the quality of craftsmanship, but I can't wear it because it's huge. I ordered my size so it would fit around my bust, and that part was fine. However, it was extremely wide in the shoulders and the sleeves went down past my fingertips. I'm 5'6"--not short. I tried rolling the sleeves up, but it made a 6" cuff and looked pretty silly and the seams showed. Because the shoulders are way too wide, it's hard to move my arms because the seam is halfway down my upper arm.
I love LL Bean, and appreciate that they have made some clothing in plus sizes, but their patternmakers really need to look at some real bodies and realize that plus size does not require football-player shoulder widths and sleeves that, as a result, drag past the fingertips. We may get chubby, but we don't grow in shoulder width and arm length ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by RJK1 Inferior to the Bean Men's Robe
I purchased the men's robe and my wife immediately wanted an L L Bean robe too. We ordered her the women's version and were very disappointed with it in comparison to my robe. The men's robe is a luxurious fleece, light and soft. The women's robe is a heavier, thicker fleece and not nearly as soft. We ordered her a men's version and are returning the women's version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyingYogini Great Robe for a Cold House
This robe is sized for sitting and reading, not for washing dishes in the kitchen. It is a little larger than expected and I did order my usual size. It is much warmer and fluffier than my old LLBean flannel robe from several years ago. The tie wrap is OK despite the bulkiness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueRidgeWoman Think twice before ordering petite vs regular
After reading practically all of the reviews, I decided to order a size PS for my daughter who is 5'6" and 120 lbs. The robe fit perfectly except for the length. It fell slightly below mid-calf and therefore was too short. I contacted customer service and was given measurements for the length of 55 1/4" for size S and 51 1/4" for size PS. I reordered the robe in size S and the length is now perfect, falling to the top of her foot at the ankle as intended. Warm, comfy robe!

Rated 1 out of 5 by robless2 The quality just isn't there.
First, I ordered this robe on sale in a closeout color -- it was too long and the quality of the fleece was nowhere near my previous LLBean fleece robe; then I ordered one of the regular colors for this season hoping that the quality would be improved this year: not. It was also way too long so I returned it. Then I ordered a petite size thinking that at least the length would be corrected and it was (I am 5'4"), but I just could not get over the inferior quality of fleece so it is going back. I don't like returning things, but this item is not inexpensive and not worth the price.
