Choosing The Size When Purchasing Robes
Though bathrobes are an easy fitting garment that are not as size- specific as other garments, some bathrobe vendors offer ‘one size fits all’. Look for online vendors that offer a choice of sizes, on their website they should tell you the dimensions of the bathrobes for women and men, what the actual weight of the robe is, and give typical and practical examples of ‘if someone is 5’6”, then the robe will go to mid-shin’. With a little effort to determine approximate sizes of the recipients, one might order a robe beforehand to ascertain what will fit whom. You can always return it, that is the easy part with online shopping.
The best tip to determine the best size to order for someone is this.
Measure their old bathrobe! But, the old robe’s size tag might say ‘Large’ but bathrobe sizing is not standardized. The most critical measurements the length of the robe, it may be 48”, 52” long or more. The length is determined where the back of the neck seam that is attached to the collar, runs down to the hem. This will tell you if the robe falls to the ankles, below the knees, mid-shin etc.
