Received as Christmas present. I tried it on and wandered around the house doing all the little things you do after being gone for a long weekend. I woke up 12 hours later comfortable and warm, still in my robe..when you find something that is super comfortable it's amazing how relaxing it can be...my response order another 😌 ✨️ I love being in the goldilocks zone...just right ✅️
I love Anika as a topper/duster, but not as a robe. Maybe i would use it for modesty as a robe in summer, but in winter I want a *warm* robe. (And a warm cardigan in a fun color- preferably marionberry or something that coordinates fabulously with marionberry)
I mostly love the color. (Plum) I wear her as a light topper with my summer dresses. (She coordinates well enough with my marionberry wardrobe)
But as a winter robe, she doesn't really work for me. Not enough warmth. The cypress cardigan works much better as a robe. (Unfortunately I returned the Cypress because the color (grey) was too blah. )
I would Really LOVE a cypress in Marionberry (or a coordinating color that is not black).
And...if you ever make a maxi length robe in a heavier fabric (in a color that I enjoy) I will absolutely try that one too!
This one does not add enough needed warmth for me on cold winter mornings. And.. the fabric (like the landmark cardigan) feels too light over my winter dresses.
However, for summer, I will absolutely be wearing this one out in public for bit of warmth and a pop of color over summer dresses.
Thank you Wool & for making a "robe" that looks perfectly perfect as a duster for wearing out in public. That is a win in my book.
It is sitting waiting for Christmas..I am certain it will be perfect as all of your items are in my eyes..will update after it's opened. Happy holidays..
This is a well made robe, roomy and with nice long sleeves and big patch pockets. The tie belt casing along the back is a nice feature, better than loops. The fabric is soft and warm, though it is lightweight. It's a year round robe for warmer climates. The plum color is lovely, and looks very similar to the picture. I agree that an inner tie would help to keep it closed.
First off, the negatives-- This is a very, very lightweight robe. I would consider this ideal for spring and fall, but not winter. Unfortunately, winter is when I was hoping to use it most. Second, it needs a tie or snap inside to help hold it closed. Even when tied firmly, the front panels slowly slide open over time and I find myself retying it multiple times a day. I fixed the issue by sewing in my own snaps on the sides, but for the price, I don't think I should have to do that. That is the reason for the one-star reduction in rating. Now for the positives-- This is a beautifully made garment. I love the channel in the back to hold the belt in place. So much better than loops! I was worried about getting the belt through the channel when it inevitably comes out in the wash. Fortunately, I was easily able to slide it back through with just my fingers. The pockets are perfect. The whole thing is just a delight to wear. I would happily wear this out and about as a long cardigan rather than just a robe because it is so gorgeous. I just wish there was a warmer option for a winter robe. I would buy the same thing in a slightly heavier weight in a heartbeat!
