Soft Ones Women's Long Cotton Chenille Snap Front Robe
I loved this robe when it arrived and then I washed it. There wasn't just lint, but actual pieces of the backing fabric came off in both the wash and dryer. The robe itself was exactly what I was looking for, 100% cotton terry or chenille, long and without a zipper to wear after a shower to help me finish getting completely dry. I can't find anything similar. I had several Stan Herman robes that would have been perfect but somehow they were lost when I moved.. Please get Stan to make something similar to this robe or find a new quality vendor.
Love this robe
I love chenille robes, I know, the lint, but I can't help it. So, be prepared for the lint when you wash and dry it. This robe is soft, comfortable and true to size. The fit is perfect and the color is gorgeous. Highly recommend, and love the snaps.
love the robe!
Received this in the mail,,a size large was true to size,,and it is quite a heavy well made robe.I do not notice any shedding what so ever,and it is a delight to put it on at night and in the morning,,I just may have to order another in a different color!!
Wonderfully warm, soft, pretty robe. No complaints whatsoever. I like that it's 100% cotton. Amply sized. 5 star all the way.
Returned after first wash
From the looks of my lint filter in my dryer, I thought this thing had fell apart! I cleaned the filter and ran it for a few more mins. Same thing happened. When I got it out of the dryer it continued to shed through out my house as I was carrying it to the bedroom! It went back to QVC today!!
Just what I was looking for!!!
Thank You for this great robe. This is great for us pears, such a lovely color, I got it yesterday and could not be happier with fit and color and weight. I am sure it is linty but I think we know this with cotton chenille. I would get another if I did not think I was beening silly as I need one while other is in laundry.
care given, care returned
If you love cotton and chenille, this is your robe. There appears to be some difference in the weight of the fabric, i.e., blue is heavier than pink. However, this is just the stuff of dreams. My only complaint is that I prefer non-pastel colors. so I am wearing pink against my will....but it feels so good against my skin, it's worth it. Do be prepared for lint and a low/slow drying time. Then be prepared to enjoy! Please bring back in some jewel tones, and maybe even in some medium to dark neutrals.
Loved the blue so I bought pink too!
Nice robe for bath or lounging. Good quality snaps that are easy to use. I like this better than the Stan Herman with buttons. Runs true to size. I think it's best to pull from dryer before it's fully dry to minimize shrinkage and yes expect lint at first-maybe part of the 100% cotton territory. Once again QVC lives up to it's name. Thanks!!!
There will be lint...
This robe is exactly what I was looking for, but at this moment I'm not sure I'll keep it. I always wash new clothes before wearing them, to get out the chemicals from dies and sizing. Another reviewer noted that a lot of lint came off of this robe, and she was right. I expected some, but not after just the wash cycle. I made the mistake of washing it with other things. Don't! I checked the dryer lint filter three times during the dry cycle, and each time it was completely full. Still, the robe came out of the dryer looking good, though it did shrink some, mostly in the length. And, of course, the inside of most chenille isn't especially soft against your skin--but again, I expected that. I do love the style and the snaps and the fact that it is 100 percent cotton. But I'm still not positive I'll keep it--I likely will see what happens after another wash. If it loses as much fabric the second time as it did the first, there won't be any pile left!.
Very low quality chenille
I purchased this because it said chenille and snap fronts but the chenille is nothing like I have ever seen in all my years. I have washed them both as suggested so I cannot return them and still cannot believe how the pile filled my washer and dryer. I had to empty the dryer every 10 minutes and the filter was running over. This is not the chenille I have grown up with.
Thank you for the snap front!
I have been trying to find a snap or button front robe forever. Why Stan Herman quit sellling these I will never know. This robe is lovely and super heavy weight which is why it takes longer to dry. You might want to go up a size in spite of what the measurements say as it does shrink some. Also, this is not a summer robe unless you live somewhere in the mountains. I hate wrap robes as they make me look like a butterball turkey with a string tied around the middle. These are just as easy to get on and more flattering than the wrap as it hides figure flaws.
This is a cute robe, and the design in perfect in fit. However, the chenille is not of the Stan Hermann's chenille. Drying this one is a long and linty task.
