A218071 - Carole Hochman Button Front Boucle Fleece Robe w/ Trim
Everything sticks to it
Everything about this robe is wonderful....warm, lightweight, pretty color, nice buttons, great length. HOWEVER, there is one huge flaw. Everything sticks to it and nothing comes off. I am covered with cat hair, my hair, crumbs, bits of paper. I have tried brushing, the sticky roller, picking things off one at a time. Nothing helps. I am so sorry that the excellent beginnings of this robe ended with poor fabric selection. I am sorry I spent my money on it.
This is a very nice robe and I will enjoy wearing it; however, it is not as warm as I thought it would be but it will be great for traveling.
Warm and good looking
I normally stay away from embellished items as I prefer a simple, classic look. But..I was desperate for a hard to find button front robe so I was willing to overlook the embroidery. I wasn't expecting much when I order the black but was surprised at how pretty it really looked. More sophisticated looking than the picture appears. Very good quality, beautiful styling. Fabric has a nice weight. Very soft, cozy, warm and comfortable. It wears well, no signs of pilling. Same good quality I would expect from Carol Hochman brand.
I love the comfort of this robe. Bought it larger than my normal size because I like my robes loose. Just washed it for the first time--in cold water--and it ran.
Very annoyed. I guess I need to apply the "buyer beware" principle when looking at clearance items.
I Love this Robe !
I just received this robe, and I put in on when I came home from work. It is so comfortable, and it is beautiful. I ordered this robe in black. After reading the reviews, I went up a size to be more comfortable.. That was a great tip, because I feel that I have enough room wearing this robe over my pajamas. Since I like this robe so much, I bought this robe in red for my sister. I recommend this robe to anyone who wants an attractive and comfortable robe. It is a great buy at the reduced price.
I ordered both colors when they were a lunch time special. I wanted a button or snap front robe for quite some time. Are these the nicest robes I have - no. But I think they will be very utilitarian. I did go up a size so there would be plenty of room over pjs or nightgown and I think it will be fine. They seem to be cut a tad small. Haven't washed so can't say anything about that but for $20 each I would consider them a great value....I hadn't really noticed the embroidery when ordering and it makes a very pretty accent to the robe....I am pleased with this purchase so far....
This is the softest, most wonderful robe I have ever owned. I look forward to putting this on and mellowing out in its "luxuriousness!" It is warm - so it is for those colder months. I do wish it was a little fuller as I personally prefer to wear very loose and relaxed lounge wear. But this is a definite keeper. I got the black.
I purchased this wonder robe and I live in it when i come home from a days work. It looks good and feels great. Id recommend carole hochman anything for everyone. She does excellents work for us. thanks carole keep them coming......
LOVELY WINTER ROBE
I noted a couple of unfavorable reviews for this robe and was very surprised, because my experience has been quite different. I ordered this robe in Black, and am very pleased with mine. I have washed it several times (no special care, just with other dark fabrics), and have not had any issues with pilling or unusual wear. Sizing is true to size, and absolutely the expected Carole Hochman quality. The fabric is quite substantial, so I recommend it primarily for colder climates. The embroidery at the yoke is beautifully done, lending a northern European flair to the design. I find this robe a perfect match to my Giesswein or Haflinger wool/felt slippers on colder mornings!
I wore it, washed it. Looks terrible after a couple of weeks. Material is poor quality. I have to send it back. For the price, not worth it.
MATERIAL NOT TOO GOOD
I LOVE THE ROBE BUT THE MATERIAL IS PILLING UP SO BAD THAT IT LOOKS AWFUL. I HAVE ONLY HAD IT A WEEK AND HAVE NOT EVEN WASHED IT YET. I'M THINKING OF SENDING IT BACK, I WILL SEE AFTER I WASH IT.
