Rated 5 out of 5áby NHGlove Very soft and comfortable
I took a chance on this robe but since I love the night gowns I buy from LL Bean, I figured I might like this robe and I was right.
It is is the perfect "in between seasons" robe. It's not warm enough to wear all winter, even in Southern NH, but it's great in the Fall. And I expect it will be terrific in the Spring, as well.
It washes and dries with little shrinkage. If I had a drier that ran less hot on low, I suspect there would have been much less shrinkage. Yes, I keep hoping the drier will die but it just keeps on going! Many articles of clothing, I dry for ten minutes in the dryer and then hang to dry.
I ordered an XL and it was perfect for me. I noted that some people had a problem with the sleeves being too long but on me, they worked out beautifully when I just turned them up once the cuff.
I hope Bean will continue to carry this type of robe because it's hard to find a well made robe for that in-between season. All they have to do is tweak the length of the sleeves.

Rated 3 out of 5áby EnjoyOutdoorsLLBean Soft Robe Strange Fit
I'm not sure who was a model for this robe! I usually wear a small, but found that size to be almost snug. I reordered in medium. The sleeves were way too long on both. I had the sleeves altered to fit since I wanted a lightweight robe that wouldn't take up much room in a suitcase during a 10 day trip. I found it wrinkled more than I hoped during travels. In hindsight, I probably should not have ordered it except I do like the zipper and no tie belt.

Very nice, and so soft. I did take advise from other reviews and ordered a size smaller than I normally would. It fits pretty well, except the sleeves are a little long. I ordered the blue and the color is so pretty. I like the zipper much better than a tie belt. Overall it is a great robe. Thanks LL Bean, another great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Poetry2 Fabulous fabric
First, it's virtually impossible to find a robe that ZIPS. And has pockets! And then to find one of soft SOFT cotton and NOT made in China. I'm in heaven. I'm 5'9" so the length is fine for me. The sleeves are a tad too long and I have long arms! But that's not enough to make me return it. I might just live in this thing all summer. Wish there were other colors like pale yellow, mint green, or even a royal purple. I got the blue and I am ordering a pink one just so I'll have a back-up.

Rated 1 out of 5áby SeaKtr Need winter style for summer
I'm still waiting for a lighter weight robe *just like your winter zip-front" that's full length and a rich green (emerald, forest - not pastel).
Maybe next year? I love everything about your winter zip-front.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RustysMom2 Great lightweight, packable robe.
This is just what I have been looking for. I like robes with zippers since tied belts always come untied on me and zippers just feel more secure. I got this robe and promptly packed it for a 10 day trip. It is just the right weight to keep the chill off in an air-conditioned hotel room, but light enough on a warm day without a/c. (I tend to be hot rather than warm, and don't like hot weather.) Great for wearing over a suit to and from the pool. It takes zero space in the suit case (OK, not zero technically, of course, but little more than a light shirt.) Fabric is soft and comfortable, but not clingy. As someone else mentioned, well made with the satin finishing on some of the seams. I appreciate the pockets and for me the sleeves are just right. I tend to not like 3/4 length sleeves, so prefer the length on this robe even in warmer weather. Just a matter of taste. The blue is very attractive. Now getting another for another family member.

Rated 5 out of 5áby bestinbean Love this robe!
This robe is wonderful from the color (blue wave) to the material. It is very soft and comfy and has nice lines - not big and boxy. It does run big so I wish I had ordered an extra small instead of small, but I know I will get lots and lots of wear out of it.
As another reviewer said, I would like it with 3/4 sleeves or else have it available in petite sizes (I have to turn up sleeves since they are too long).

Rated 3 out of 5áby Pepper02 Not for me
Very light for a long sleeve robe, but the most important problem was the length. I am 5 feet 4 inches tall and it was closer to angle length than mid-calf. Anyone would need to be 6 feet tall for it to be mid-calf

This is a wonderful robe that I expect to wear for years. The color (blue wave) is very pretty, and the robe fits perfectly. It?s lightweight and packable, but warm enough for cold mornings; next winter I will layer it over a heavy flannel nightgown. Unlike too many garments today, it is tailored well. Even the inside looks good, with satin seam bindings! This is the sort of simple, classic clothing I have always associated with LLBean.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Suevan1 Wonderful summer robe!
I've been looking a long time for a summer robe that zips up the front and has good coverage and I love this one! I thought I wanted a plain cotton fabric but I actually love this cotton knit. It drapes and is very soft, cool, and flattering. The length is about mid-calf on me - I'm 5'3"- so I don't feel like I'm showing too much leg when we have company. The two front pockets are handy and the overall style is simple - which I like. I ordered the medium and feel it runs a bit large but overall the fit is good. The color is actually more of a light aqua rather than the blue shown online but the color is soft and pretty. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the sleeves are long - I would have preferred a 3/4 length. Otherwise, great robe!
