Carole Hochman Woodblock Floral Cotton Zip Front Robe
THE PERFECT LOUNGER
I was lucky and got this at the lunchtime price. It is lightweight and very soft and comfortable. Just wish they had the blue in my size. Yes the sleeves are alittle longer but just fold them up.
I just had to come over and say how much I LOVE this robe. I suspected I would so I bought both colors. I ‘m so glad I did and I just might have to buy 2 more so I ‘ll never be without it....it is that beautiful. The fabric is such a nice weight and not see through at all. And the length is perfect for me. I ‘m 5’ 6”. 150 lbs, apple shape but I find it very slimming when if I hold in my tummy ;o) I have always worn a medium in Carole's items and this fits perfect.
I wear this type of style at home all the time being alone. I like to be comfortable and this very cozy. Now if it won’t shrink I ‘ll be in 7th heaven. NONE of Carole’s garments have ever done that so I hope this will be of the same quality.
Do I just have bad taste? I LOVE this one!
I think the only problem causing the negative reviews is that it is called a robe. I knew from the reviews it would be a light-weight lounger for me. That is what I expected; that is what I got. And I love it. No see through and it is good for warm weather with cooler mornings and evenings. Yep, the sleeves might be a little longer; what's the big deal, roll them up. I think it is well worth the price and I see that I missed it as a lunchtime special, so some of you are very lucky!
I do not understand the bad reviews..I did get it as a lunchtime special and probably would not like it as much if I had paid more than I did but it is perfect for my needs-around the house and high fenced in back yard..it was not meant for the prom, that being said I usually agree with bad reviews...not this time!
worst CH purchase ever..
horrible robe! cheap, flimsy material..horrible print..I got this as a lunchtime special..and it was still too much money.
now all of a sudden the blue one is available..would of ordered that one..
I am returning this..
it's print is ugly and it's so thin..Carol, what were you thinking when you designed this one?
A Shapeless Mess
I was so disappointed when I received this today. I immediately tried it on and was surprised how huge it was through the shoulders and chest. I've bought this brand before in the same size but never had this fit problem before. It looked like a sack on me. As noted by others, the sleeves are too long and also too wide. The side slits go way up above the knee which would cause a problem with coverage when you're lounging on the sofa watching TV or reading. I'm usually a lot more restrained in my reviews, but this is one of the worst clothing purchases I've made in 20+ years at QVC.
This is such a soft cotton it feels wonderful to the touch. The sleeves were too long for me and I am not a short person. Even tho I loved the feel of the fabric..it is too light weight for my needs. I tried it on with my nylon night gown and it looked like I still needed a robe on for better "cover". So I am sending it back.
The price is great and the feel of the fabric is wonderful. Many other's would probably love it.
great light weight lounger
I washed this right away to see if it would shrink. It might have a little bit but not enough to really notice. It is long enough and comfortable. I live in Texas and can't wear anything too heavy. This works perfectly.
Sooooo Soft Thanks for 100% Cotton
This is my first purchase of any QVC sleepwear. I was very happy to feel this very soft, very comfortable cotton on my body. Oh it is delightfully heavenly. I appreciated the two side slits for ease of movement and sitting. At first look I thought the cotton very lightweight, but after wearing/sleeping in I think it is the perfect weight. Very warm but not to hot and breathes. Also did not feel material bunch if I sat on it wrong. I love how it wonderfully skims over my body (plus size). I put this on over my head. The neckline embroidery and delicate butttons are a beautiful face framing look and a feminine look which I prefer. Gorgeous blue. I fell asleep in this in the chair and enjoyed a very good nap, perfectly temperatured in my new heavenly soft 100% cotton! Thanks C.H. & QVC.
Not so great
I have many Carole Hochman items, but this was not of the same quality in my opinion. It was sloppy looking, and after careful washing the zipper became crooked and would not lie flat. Very odd. Also, the 2 buttons added nothing, were difficult to manage and not needed. I have to say the color was nice and the zipper was long enough to step into the "robe". Sent it back.
I am writing the review primarily to clarify that I would not call this a "zip front" robe, since IMO this implies a full-length zipper. There is a short hidden zip at the neckline to allow for more ease in pulling the robe over your head -- nothing more. I would probably not have ordered this item if I had understood it didn't have a full zipper, because that is strongly my preference. As it turns out, I do like the robe anyway. It's made from a lightweight, thinner cotton in an opaque and flattering bright blue. It is ankle-length on my 5' 4", plus-sized frame.
