The fabric has a great hand to it! I love the texture of the yarns. However it does appear to be a bit sheer in places and I can sometimes see the color of my underwear through it. The robe is lightweight and good for warm weather. I have had my robe for a month now, but I noticed the fabric was beginning to pill very much after wearing the robe for one hour a day for the first fourteen days. The robe didn't thankfully didn't shrink after I washed it on the delicate cycle and dried it slightly on a low temperature in the dryer. It was also suspiciously even softer than before! The robe brings me so much joy and comfort when I wear it and I really feel like it helps me relax after a day of work. It really is one of my favorite articles of clothing. I was hoping to wear it out of the house as well, but the fabric is pilling so much I feel like it does not look presentable enough to wear to the office and by the time it will be safe to go out and socialize again I am not sure if the condition of the fabric will have degraded further. The Sultan robe is almost perfect! I do love it but I won't be able to use it in all the ways I intended to when I bought it.
Color: It's a bit difficult to tell what color the robe is based on the photos from the robe and towel product pages and also on Instagram. The robe is an off-white color with black stripes. On my monitor the stripes appear to be blue-gray or even brown. I kind of wish there was a way to request swatches of the different robe and towel fabrics (to have a better idea of color and texture, and also before committing to an ethically-priced purchase), but some items sell out so fast that when you do decide to place an order you are either only left with a few options to choose from or you need to wait for your other choices to be re-stocked.
Fit: I am about 5'3" and 150 lbs. The Small / Medium is a good length on me and a size larger would look too baggy. I wish the front part of the robe was wider; after I tie my robe and walk around the house a little the fabric slides and the robe opens up. It's a bit bothersome to have to re-tie the robe so frequently and have to constantly make sure I am entirely covered when I take out the trash.
