ROBE SIZING GUIDE
How to Find the Right Size of Robe
When you are selecting robes, one of the things that you will need to determine is what size to get. Everyone is different in size and shape, so size really matters when you are buying a robe. A robe that is too large will be too baggy on you and might slip around or be unflattering. A robe that is too small won’t cover you and you will not be able to wrap it around yourself to keep warm.
In order to get the right size of robe, you will need to measure yourself before you make your order. It’s not too difficult to measure yourself before purchasing a bathrobe. You will need a measuring tape, a pen a paper and perhaps someone to help you make some of the tricky measurements.
Making Measurements for Buying Robe
There are three very important measurements to make when buying robe and they are the length, and the sweep.
The sweep is a measurement that refers to the extent of the bathrobe around your waist. On the garment the sweep is usually measured by laying the robe flat with the seams matched up, measuring it from end to end and then doubling the measurement.
Two bathrobes with different sweep measurements can look similar but the different can make them fit very differently on your body. To figure out if a bathrobe you are considering buying online is large enough for you, mark out the sweep measurement on a measuring tape and then put it together in a circle. If that circle is large enough to fit comfortably around you, it will be the right size.
The other important measurement you will need to know when ordering bathrobes for men online is the length. This is how long the robe is from the middle of the neck down to the bottom edge.
