Rated 5 out of 5 by zeronickname Warm, long, cozy - perfect for cold climates
I thought I already wrote a review on this but I can't find it, so I'm writing again. I have had this robe for many years (maybe 6?). It's my uniform during Western NY Winters.
LENGTH - YES, this robe is long. I am 5'8" and it nearly goes to the floor. It's PERFECT for cold Winters. I would not want a shorter robe and I think the length makes the entire robe. But if you are elderly (prone to falling) or petite, you may to consider the length.
FLEECE QUALITY - Mine is more than a few years old but it's nice, thick, soft fleece. It's thick but not too thick IMO. It has washed well for years on cold wash/low dryer.
LOOKS/WARMTH - OK - it's like the opposite of sexy. But it is my GO-TO item in the Winter every morning when the house is freezing. I dread taking it off to put on my parka to walk my kids to school. (Yes, I wear it over my clothes sometimes - just to warm up.) I don't care how it looks -- I'm warm.
MISC - If you have dogs, this robe will attract fur, given its length. But that's just part of having a dog, right? I miss mine, so appreciate that fur!

Rated 5 out of 5 by beachwalker2 Love this robe!
Bought this roble last November and I was so glad that I did! It is one of the best robes I have ever had! It is so warm yet doesn't feel
heavy. I bought it in Raspberry which is so much prettier than the
picture on my screen. It is much darker than shown. I am 5'3" and
I bought a petite medium..I could have gone with a small but I find
this to be OK. The length is perfect! The sleeves are too long but I
roll them back. Very pretty and cozy robe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PoePearl Best Robe I've ever owned
This robe is by far the best robe I've ever owned. I've never owned an LL Bean robe before and now I know why people love them. It is extremely warm. I am 5'6 and the regular length is perfect. My favorite part is that it's also very durable. I have small children, and have the robe in ivory, so it can get dirty because of the children. I've had it for 2 years and it washes so well and looks good as new with every wash.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HockeyMominVt Huge!
This robe was fine quality and I loved the pink color but it was HUGE! I wear between a 12-14 and I'm 5'7" so I bought a large. It added what felt like 30 pounds to my frame and was so bulky. Worse yet it dragged on the floor and I couldn't go upstairs without tripping over it! It had to go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jessee09 Love my new robe
Just received this robe today and I really love it! IT IS SO COMFORTABLE! The blue color is very pretty and I like the monogram that I had added. Other reviews stated that this item ran large and that is very true. I am 5'8" and 140 lbs. I usually wear a medium but ordered a small in this robe. I was a little worried that it might seem snug, but it is not at all. Anything larger would have been too big. I have long arms and these sleeves are very long. It is a good heavy weight and will be wonderful next winter. I can probably use it during 3 seasons (probably a bit heavy for summer).

Rated 5 out of 5 by EFM47 Feels like you're being hugged
I am not by any means a robe person, in fact until recently I didn't fully understand their purpose. However, I don't think I could have survived this winter without this robe. There were even a few especially frigid nights where I wore the robe over a wool sweater and sweat pants to bed. I'm 5'3" but decided to buy the regular instead of the petite and it's been working fine for me. It's definitely too long but not long enough that it trips me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanFanofGoretex Beautiful robe!
I LOVE this robe!! It is warm, very comfortable, soft, and washes and dries extremely well. I read almost every review before I ordered since so many reviews were saying the robe runs large. I would normally have ordered my regular L.L.Bean size large but chose the petite medium in this robe. I am 5'5" and the robe is a perfect fit for me. It comes to within 5-6 inches from the floor which is exactly what I wanted and the sleeve length is perfect - no need to roll the cuffs. Perfect!! I was lucky enough to grab one of the last ones in deep red and it goes perfectly with my L.L.Bean wicked good vintage red moccasins that I bought last year. L.L.Bean, you have yet another winner!! And, another extremely happy customer!! Thanks for keeping us warm during these cold winters!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by QualityFanatic Very cozy, Beautiful color, Never uncomfortable
I love this robe! I dislike taking it off in the morning and look forward to putting it back on at night. I ordered it in Raspberry which is a cheerful color for the winter months. Monogramming in white looks great.
After reading the reviews, I hesitated to order it because many people said the sizing was off. I always order everything from Bean in size small and the fit of the robe in size small was perfect. The robe is truly breathable -- it never makes you feel clammy when you get a little too warm.
I hesitate to give the rating of 5 stars only because I have had the robe for only two months and don't know how well it will wear over a period of time, although I think it will do well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by happykiwi Very comfortable but length an issue.
Well worth sale price.. Color is more of a red then raspberry. Ex- large is really big but as robe you can manage. Length is quite long requiring hemming of 9". I am 5'6 & it is dragging on the floor. No doubt large might have been OK but length may still be an issue. Yes a good buy warm, cozy & length may be fine for others. I did go by measurements but didn't work.for me. Overall I am pleased - would recommend - be sure to check sizing little can be done re length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gailmo Wonderful!
This robe is wonderful! Warm, cozy, soft, and very snuggley. I am short and a bit stout - 5' tall and about 160lbs I usually wear a petite large but read the previous reviews and downsized to a Petite Medium. It fits very well. It wraps around me and keeps my legs covered. Like others, I had to roll the sleeves a couple of times--but this is not a bother. I typically have to shorten EVERYTHING --but decided that I would not shorten this robe. It is about 1-2 inches from the floor --doesn't snag on anything and I just hoist it a bit before I climb stairs. I may relent and shorten it--but for now I am going to let it be and see how it works. Again, this is an amazing robe!!!
