Happy Monday guys and hope you all had a good weekend! Today we have a Cuyana review from reader Susy (who awesomely answered my call for some help in reviewing Cuyana items). So without further ado, here's her review on Cuyana's Turkish cotton robe:
"I was interested in this robe first because I keep seeing Turkish cotton towels popping up all over Instagram. I have one Turkish cotton towel and I adore it, so based on that and my trust in the Cuyana brand, I went ahead and ordered it.
The website says that if you prefer a looser fit, move up a size, so while I normally would have ordered the S/M, I went with the L/XL. As you can see in the pictures, it's definitely oversized. I'm 5'6" and 125 lbs, so I felt extremely dwarfed in it. But that's the relaxed look I was going for, so I'm okay with it.
The pros: the cotton / bamboo mix feels light in the summer and slightly heavy in the winter. The material itself is pretty thin, but no thinner than any other Turkish towel. I love the casual elegance and the wonderful drape it provides. I've washed it a couple times on cold delicate and hung to dry and it comes out looking just as good at ever. I'd say the fabric has a semi-dry hand feel (a term I learned from Everlane!).
The cons: the fabric has started to pill slightly around the seams. This is a minor thing compared to how I feel about the robe as a whole, I was just surprised because in my experience, Cuyana products are made to last, and I didn't really think this was a garment that would pill. So I just hope it doesn't get any worse or that I can use a sweater stone on it.
Overall, I use this robe every morning after I shower and I just love it! It's the perfect addition to elevate your normal routine."
