I have been looking for the right robe since I had my first baby over two years ago. Nursing, all night wake ups and more guests in your home than usual made it a priority for me this pregnancy. I have tried turkish robes (the heavy kinds), satin robes, and cotton robes, and have never been really satisfied. Either too heavy, too hot, too clingy or awkward. (Writing this I realize I sound like Goldilocks...) But anyway, this beautiful robe is on a whole new level! It is soft but not wimpy, comfy, BEAUTIFUL and makes me feel like somehow I kind of have it together. (Like if I have the right coffee mug in hand and the lighting is just right, maybe I too, should take an Instagram selfie). The towel that came with is lovely. I am saving to use as a baby blanket for baby #2. I have towels like this and prefer classic cotton towels but love this fabric to use as a throw, baby blanket, shawl, picnic blanket, or other. I can't explain why but the robe smells amazing even after being washed (with scent-free detergent). The fabric softens up and does shrink slightly just as they tell you it will. Also, the packaging is gorgeous and they sent a cute tote as a gift! I am definitely giving these robes to my good friend and mother-in-law for Christmas!
