The Alem robe has exceeded my expectations in every way. It's beautiful and soft, but also seriously well constructed. The inside seams are all finished! The attention to every detail on the robe makes it well worth the price. This is a gorgeous garment that will last for many years. I would advise anyone with a bust, board chest, or belly to consider sizing up for maximum coverage. My S/M fits, but doesn't have quite the same amount of cross-over coverage as what I am used to in a robe.
This robe is fantastic. It got softer after I washed and dried it on low in the dryer. Nice light weight without being see through. I'm about 5'8" and usually wear a US 18/XXL. I bought the 2xl/3xl to be sure I had plenty of fabric for coverage and it works great.
Excellent quality! Good fit! Very pleased!!
the pattern and colors in this robe are magnificent. the fabric is soft yet still has structure. I am 5'6", 32 chest, 39 hips and I got the S/M. I very minimally dried (on low heat and it definitely shrunk up) and it has a fitted look. I like the smaller size for wearing over clothes/arq sets. I do have another robe in M/L that offers a much more generous fit that I like for lounging and coverage.
the colors really are amazing though. I love the generous pocket size and belt. great quailty.
I received this robe for Christmas and I love, love, love it. I have even worn it to work as a duster and received many compliments.
Care instructions were thoroughly read, but unfortunately not by my husband. I walked away from the laundry and before I knew it, he'd tossed everything into the dryer on regular setting. Thing is, I'm 5'4" and prior to this 'accident' the robe was just too long (hitting at my ankle) BUT NOW its PERFECT! The robe shrunk a good 4" in length and the care instructions warn of this so take heed!
Happy accident for me, but heads up for the rest of you!
