I have three robes too and they all serve a very distinct purpose. I have a big cozy terry cloth one that is used when it is cold weather.... it is ready to be retired and replaced by a fancy chennelle one. I have a beige, comfy cotton one for wearing around the bathroom as I get ready for the day. It is the perfect thinness that I can blow dry my hair or run around like a chicken with my head cut off and not get too hot. My last one is a classic pinstriped men's oversized robe. It is cotton and thin too and I like to wear it with nothing at all under it when I feel like lounging around the house. I have a few others that stay tucked away and are only used when I visit other people's houses. I have a silky one that my hubby just loves and it only gets brought out when he remembers it, heehee.

I think the reason I dislike robes is because I have never owned one where the sleeves came to my hands. Most come to just above my wrist and that always bigged me for some reason. My wife has 2 big fuzzy ones she loves. Yes her sleeves are short as well. Are they all like this or not? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Ahh, poor G. Bob. I have a friend that sews these types things for a living. Send me your measurements and I have her make you a big fluffy robe for a Christmas present. Be sure to let me know what stocking cap you would like the robe to match.

I can't tell you the last time I wore a robe. I do have one, it is maroon in color and real soft velvety feeling, long and has a zipper that zips down to around the knees. My mother always loved to wear what she called "dusters". There were made of cotton and had pockets and usually had snaps up the front.

I remember my grandmother wearing those dusters alot. She always kept her kleenex in the pockets. They were always pretty with lots of flowers and beautiful colors.

My grandmother passeed away over thirty years ago. I still have the most wonderful memories of her. She was an angel to us all. I always looked forward to every visit and I called her every chance I got and saw her as often as I could.

I've got 3. A fuzzy warm one for the winter, and when i sit in the air conditioning. A light weight one for the summer. And an old light weight one that i never wear any more. I only wear them for lounging around and being comfy, not to dry myself off. My favorite on has got to be my fuzzy winter one! I wear it all the time when i'm cold, and i never wanna take it off! I'll even sleep in the robe sometimes!

I am not a big fan of robes. But I do have twop robes that I wear ever so often. OIne is a black one that I've had for years. The second one has a funny story attatched. I got one from a local casino when I stayed at their Hotel. It was a really nice robe as well from what I saw. So I requested another one for wearing on my way to the pool there. Anyhow I packed the one into my suitcase. Well when I got home I took it out. It had a huge hole in the armpit. I really wanted to call and complain about the casinos hotel robes but..... HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

No, I don't have a favorite robe. All I own is one. I can't afford to own more than when I have a husband and kids I need to keep in them as well. Espically the kids as much as they are growing taller every day. I don't look funny in my robe. I look gorgous. Not really that great. But I sure won't wear anything that makes me look funny or stupid.

I have these because they were gifts from my children over the years. It takes a long time for one to wear out so Ill probably have them a long time. Oh. I know how it is when the kids are growing up, I raised three. I always put them first.

I don't own any robes at all - I've never really liked the idea of wearing one.

I have a very soft one that my sister-in-law gave me that I love. I don't wear it often though. Now that it's getting colder, I will be wearing it more!

My main robe is very special to me because my kids got it for me. Its very exspensive but Thats not the reason I like it. It is just because they got it for me.

I only have one robe, and I think my robe looks like the same one you described -- very soft and fluffy, great for autumn and winter. I don't wear it very often though because I prefer to wear casual clothing at home. Whenever I wear the robe, I feel like a slacker or like a lazy person who just lounges around the house I do want to get another robe more suited for warmer temps, though. Maybe in that one, I wouldn't feel so slothful.

I have several robes, but I have two favorites. One is my favorite to wear after a shower, and it is basically a white, very classic terry cloth one. It always makes me feel like I am staying at a hotel, ha ha! The other one is a black, silky and very luxurious one. I like to wear that one during the weekends to feel a bit glamorous.
