Carole Hochman Soft Ikat Cotton Jersey Caftan
I ordered in blue and after wearing for a few days I ordered in pink. The fit is good not too big, not too short. just right fit .The medium is a generous fit on my 5' 4 ,130 lbs body.
This is just OK. I ordered both colors because this sleeve length is hard to find. I was disappointed because it runs smaller than most Carol Hochman items and it is not comfortable as a robe over gowns or pajamas. For the price I would have expected a nicer material as this is nothing more than T-shirt type.
Love this caftan
I received this very soft jersey caftan in the blue, and it looks striking. I ordered up one size to a 2x so that I have a little more room since I will be using it over my nightgown. I don't like to wear heavy bulky robes. Looks very cute and I love the pattern. Washed & lightly dried - no shrinkage.
The color is beautiful (pink) and love the fabric (so soft) but the fit is too skimpy and way to short (I am only 5'1" tall). Carole, we want roomy lounge wear not something I can't bend over in or feel like I need to wear a girdle underneath.
This little robe is the perfect color of cotton candy and the feel of it is like air. It is the perfect robe for the summer. My husband also noticed it and thought it was nice. There is no see through so getting the morning paper in the driveway or taking the dog out to the yard is not a problem wearing this robe. I will be ordering the blue robe as soon as I get caught up with Easy Pay Day. This robe is a keeper!!
Fit Is Bad For Warm Weather Wears
Also to short for comfort. Sadly returned both co
Ors. The fabric and finish were great.
Great Summer robe
It is difficult for me to find exactly what I'm looking for in a robe for the Summer. I don't like anything too short, and I also like more of a 3/4 sleeve. This robe is really nice. I ordered Blue in my regular size Small, and it is roomy enough. The material is soft and comfortable for Summer. Length is good. I gave it 4 stars because I am not thrilled with the neckline. I would have preferred it to be more open, as I do not like anything on my neck, and unfortunately, I can feel this on my chest.
Best robe ever!
I purchased this in blue, size Medium (my usual Q size.) The fit is perfect (I am busty) & the length ideal (I am 5'4".) The fabric is nice & soft--not heavy, which is important since I live in steamy Florida. The robe is modest enough to answer the door if need be. It's not clingy, but not too much fabric either, has nice side slits for easy walking & real pockets that you can get your full hand into. I love this robe so much, I am back to order the pink! I would love to see this silhouette in different patterns/colors, perhaps a more open neckline with a full length zipper?
I'm not sure why Carole Hochman's 100% cotton items are so very different in quality than that used by other designers, but here's another wonderful example. This Ikat caftan (more a short robe, IMHO) is the coziest, softest cotton imaginable -- just what you want against your skin. In Florida, I'll use this robe year-round. The Blue is that wonderful, electric color palette -- very fresh for loungewear. Liked it so much, I'm back for the Pink. :)
Received the blue today and absolutely love it. So I ordered it in the pink. My go to favorite around the house lounge wear and can go get the paper and mail in it and feel completely adorable. Thanks Carole for bringing this prouct to us.
