As it was a gift, I cannot respond to the size, uses, etc.

This is my third robe from Uncommon Goods in a month! This one is a little heavier than the Midnight Garden Kimono. It has the same pockets, but the belt is attached in the back. Perffct for lounging on cooler nights (I live in Arizona, so cooler is relative!). Beautiful print. Washes and dries well.
I have been looking for years to find a cotton lightweight robe that packs small for travel. This is perfect in every way. I am wide in the hips (XL) and was really worried about the "one size fits most" but it is generous in width so it will not gap open. The cotton feels soft and will be light enough for hot and humid climes yet cozy enough for cool climes. I'm thrilled with this purchase.
