Rated 2 out of 5 by tealover whatever happened to Polartec fleece robes?
Just disappointed and unfortunately will return it. I wish it was made from Polartec, that is the most plush and warmest fleece material. I was hoping this women's robe would be my "go to" wrap around winter robe that kept me really warm. Not so, the fleece is quite thin, certainly thinner than other fleece robes I have had in the past. Also, I am 5.6 inches tall and I got size small, the length is a bit too long, and as some others have mentioned, it is a bit "tripable", which might be a problem especially on stairs.
PLEASE make the same style robe using a plush Polartec material, I bet you get plenty of buyers :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by cleverduck Soft and warm polar fleece
I had looked far and wide, online and in the stores, for a robe that will keep me warm on those cold winter mornings before the heat comes up. Even though it is not winter yet, I am certain this will fit the bill. It is a beautifully thick polar fleece, not at all bulky, and very soft. I was worried about tripping on the regular length and took a chance on the petite. I am 5'4", and the petite is perfect for me. I ordered the dark raspberry color, and it is beautiful. Thank you for this lovely item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SunshineDay Nice robe, but fits long
I have been hoping that LL Bean would bring back the Petal Soft robe that I bought in 2007 and have nearly worn out. LL Bean robes just seem to fit my body best in the shoulders and the way they wrap around. Alas, the Petal Soft has not returned again this year, so I bought the Winter Fleece one, and will note that the fleece is a wee bit stiff - it doesn't drape as nicely as the Petal Soft did. The biggest thing is this robe runs very long. I am 5'8", but I had to send the M regular back and exchange it for the M petite, which fits just right. Love the elderberry color, just wish the fleece was a bit more fluid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PhillyFemale thick and warm and very long
I am 5'7" and ordered a Misses Large based on the size chart. The robe is too long to be safe on stairs. The sleeves are also too long and the cuffs are not designed to be turned up. I have now ordered a Petite Large. If its waist is not too short, it will save my having to either make major alterations or look for another robe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brisborn Smaller???
I purchased this item in red about 4 years ago and the fit was perfect. This year I purchased another one exactly the same accept a new color as I really liked the fit and quality of the 1st one. The first thing a noticed is that it is shorter and has less fabric for wrap around. Even though it still fit what really annoyed me was they cut back on the inner facing on the collar so that it always shows. I thought LLBean was immune to all the cheapening of materials and I was disappointed to see they are not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenMck Perfect!
I am tall and have long arms. I usually have a difficult time finding things that have long enough sleeves. This robe came to the tops of my feet and the sleeves well past my wrists, exactly what was looking for. I am extremely satisfied with this robe. The weight is a nice medium weight fleece, perfect for winter. I am 5'8" and generally wear a L or XL, so I ordered this in an XL despite other reviews saying it ran large. It's roomy, but that's what I wanted. Will order another one in a different color!

I live in these robes. It gets very chilly in San Francisco year round. Instead of flipping on the heat, I put one of these on, and I am fine! I am 5'4 1/2," 120-125 pounds. When I ordered the robe in small regular, I found myself dangerously tripping on the hem as I went up my home's stairs. (I had to return it). My robes in small petite, however, are the perfect length--no tripping on the hem, and plenty long and warm. The belt fits nicely at my waist. I wash them in Woolite for Dark Colors, put them in the dryer briefly, and wow, they come out feeling and looking like they did when I first bought them. No shrinkage.

This bathrobe is the best! I was so happy to be able to order it in a petite size and it fits great. It keeps me very warm and washes beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by emma9 wonderful robe
I have loved my LLBean robe for many years, love that it is offered in a light color ( I feel happy wearing the cream on dark winter mornings, and it washes well). I love the weight of the fleece for cold New England winters. It has lasted many years, and I'm beginning to look for a replacement. My plan is to buy it again when the M becomes available. I have not been able to find the same quality/weight fabric from other companies, and hope LLBean continues this style and fleece weight into the future.

I received this for Xmas but didn't want to use it until now (Mar). I tried it on and it fitted well if a little long, but not too long. I washed and dried the robe yesterday and, now, the robe is huge. Everything got too long. It puddles on the floor and the arms grew by several inches I have never seen fleece do this and we own lots of fleece.
