One Size Fits - Who, Exactly?
OK—Let’s take a survey. All those who love the concept of one-size-fits-all bathrobes, please raise your hands. Hmm. . .nobody? Oh wait—are those some hands going up, back there in the back? No, they’re just adjusting the sleeves of their robes. Looks like this survey scores a big fat zero.
That’s the whole point—one size does not fit all! How could it? When you look around, exactly who is one size? There are slim petites, comfortably average, and hearty plus sizes everywhere you look. How can manufacturers of one-size bathrobes claim to be able to satisfy everybody?
Well, they can’t. No way. In fact, it’s a pet peeve of consumers and fashion consultants alike that so many manufacturers provide their bathrobes in only one size or two or three combo sizes. And 9 out of 10 times, it’s not going to fit. The shoulder seams will fall off the shoulders, the sleeve cuffs will fall inches below the wrist, the waist will bunch up under the belt with too much bulky material, and the hem will drag the ground, getting ragged and soiled.
Or maybe the customer is more robust, and the robe’s sleeves don’t even quite reach the wrist, the robe won’t completely close over the middle, and it’s too short for decency. And how can anyone be comfortable in bathrobes that strain at the shoulder seams and across the back? They can’t—it’s not possible!
Admittedly, there is one logical reason for manufacturing one-size-fits-all robes. These days, travelers just don’t want to use up their luggage space by packing their bulky bathrobes, so a lot of hotels and spas provide robes for their guests. If they tried to accommodate every guest according to individual size and color preference, it would be an enormous, unmanageable job, not to mention outrageously expensive. So manufacturers that deal with these hospitality industries tried to identify an “average” person to fit into their bathrobes, and those are the robes they distribute to all these bulk-order customers. Unfortunately, some of those manufacturers are rather lazy, so they don’t try to please individual customers by offering them individual choices. They prefer to save the time and effort and just offer the one-size bathrobes to everyone. There’s the rub.
Fortunately, it is still possible to find robes that are suited to individual sizes and tastes. At Plush Necessities, you will find spa quality bathrobes that are soft, warm, luxurious, and sized to fit! There are varieties of robes available in 7 sizes, from X-small to XXX-large. Not only that, they also come in an array of colors, so you don’t have to settle for the same old hotel-white.
Whether you’re a man or woman, you do have the option of choosing the robe that is made to fit you—not some random “average” person, not some combo size like medium/large that might fit parts of you. There’s really no reason for anyone not to be able to try on a soft, comfortable robe in their favorite color and realize that it fits them—exactly.
