Women's Turkish Terry Calf Length Robe
Practical and Utilitarian (some areas need a re-design)
I purchased this robe about 6 years ago because I needed and wanted a 100% terrry cloth robe and could not find it in the stores. The majority of stores if they sold bathrobes at all sold cotton knit bathrobes in thigh lengths, or fleece robes. I looked online and found yours six years ago. The robe is now in tatters after weekly washing and because it snags especially the pockets which have repeatedly caught on doorknobs. I am 5'4 about average for an American women so these pockets need to be lowered or raised so they won't catch on doorknobs. The lope to hang the robe up broke after a month. The fabric is less than ideal it looked like I had owned this robe for twenty years after just a month of use. This is unacceptable. On a side note, I don't understand the need for long sleeves with rolled ends on bathrobes. If anything a robe should be the one item of clothing for women that has a 3./4 sleeves. I suggest you either get rid of that roll at the end of the sleeve, it serves no purpose, tack it down or provide a long strap and button on the outside sleeve so I can hold it buttoned out of the way. The less expensive and money saving option while keeping the traditional look would be to consider a 3/4 sleeves. On every item of women's tops, dresses or blouses I detest 3/4 sleeves. I find it an insult, a way of disrespecting women, we want to save money so we only offer you 3/4 sleeves instead of full length sleeves. You don't find 3/4 sleeves on men's top so don't put them on mine except for the bathrobe of course. On a bathrobe a 3/4 sleeve would make sense. I would not be constantly trying to roll and keep the sleeves up while I wash the sink, clean the tub or make breakfast. Also offer this robe in an ankle length style for plus size women because by the time we sit down on our big bottoms the length of the calf length robe is hitting us behind the knees and our lower legs are cold.
In summary change the following.
robe hanging lope make it stronger
3/4 length sleeves
Offer in ankle length for plus size women.

This bathrobe is a little too bulky for my tastes.
The bathrobe was a pretty lavender which matched the nightgown perfectly. However, I wanted the robe for the summer and it was just too bulky--too much fabric to really tie the tie in front, sleeves too bulky when rolled up. It just was not what I was looking for.

If you are looking for a very fluffy, heavy robe to wear for warmth, this is for you
I wanted this robe to replace the terry robe I wear for a short time when I get out of the shower and this is not the one. It is very heavy and very long - just too much material. If you are looking for a heavy robe to keep you warm, then this might be for you. For me, it was too much and I returned it.

Excellent terry robe!
Nice and roomy - quality meets Land's End standards.
Great color too - using it as a spa robe for my hot tub.

Snags, pulls, not soft. Very disappointing.
Fit is fine, poor quality fabric: SNAGS, PULLS, AND IS NOT A SOFT FABRIC.

After searching for months, I finally found this robe and I love it. It is exactly what I was looking for! Perfect robe! I had never bought anything from Lands End before but buying this robe turned me into a Lands End shopper!

This robe was beautiful when it arrived but just after 1 week there are pulls all over it and it looks like I have had it for years. Very disappointed and it sure will not make another winter. No more Lands End robes.

just what I was looking for
Great robe, true terry cloth not fleece or microfiber so its soft, warm and absorbant after a shower, it's been washed and its held up , no piling or shedding, and I haven't had any problems with snags, its just the right weight,not too heavy, its got a generous wrap, the only thing missing was an inside tie to keep it closed.

Glad to find a terrycloth bathrobe!
I actually ordered this for my 89 yr. old mom who has had a hard time finding a terrycloth robe! I had ordered one for her @ Christmas, size large and despite it being a bit long for her (5'2") she loved it!! So much so that she asked for another one for her birthday a month later. Ordered it in a petite size this time and it fits perfect. I also had a hard time finding terrycloth robes so was very happy when I saw it online.

Love, Love, Love
I use it when I get out of shower and it keeps me cozy and warm while I dry my hair and put make up on.
