This gorgeous robe comes in 5 sizes and 14 different print/colour-ways.

I have this in size M, which is 12 according to the charts and that feels right to me, and its so great to find something that fits as you’d expect. So many Amazon clothes are just too small, and that’s disappointing when you have to guess at what size to order. They might be inexpensive but its dear if you then can’t wear it. I’ve two tops from this company too that are sized as you’d expect . (I’m giving this to a friend hence I ordered the smaller size, though its so pretty its hard to part with it!!) I’m a 16-18, and this is too small, I can get it on easily and it meets at front but there’s no wrap over. The sleeves are very generous though and so you could get away with a smaller size as a kind of beach cardi/cover-up robe. There are no inner ties, but its easy to stitch a couple of ribbons if you want them. There is a matching tie to close it and hooks at the side to hold it in place.

I reviewed another kimono for Yidarton where the fabric was very thin I felt, this seems better to me, a little more substance to it though still keeping it lightweight for summer use. Its still got that luxurious silky feel to it, and the designs are so very attractive.

I’ve the acid blue one, a perfect rich turquoise with beautiful peacocks on it.  Its  got a double layer edge along the collar and front and short sleeves.  The seams and hems are well finished, no snags or trailing threads.Its made of 100% polyester making it easy to launder, it can be machined washed and cool tumble dried. That’s always welcome though of course at this time of year this will dry very quickly outside ( between UK rain of course)  and I think this is a great buy.

Stars: Five, I love this one. Hadn’t thought of the beach cover angle but this is perfect for that.

In the hope of some summer sun I ordered this one for me…I give away many review items but keep some.

Its a really pretty top, with the narrow stripes being a soft blue/grey colour alternating with white. The lace part is lovely, a beautiful design on the back in a creamy soft  cotton– I’ve shown a close up of it. In the sun you’ll need to use sunscreen if you don’t want a tattoo type tan on your back – personally I think its be pretty! I love this heavy lace effect, have a few tops with it now.
The fabric is a reasonable thickness for summer use, doesn’t show through as so many do, and is a knit type material with some stretch to it.

I bought the XXL size and I’m a 16-18 and its perfect for me. I like tops to be lose in summer. I’d gone a size larger as so many clothes on amazon are small but I could have ordered the XL that’s recommended for a 16-18. I’m happy with bigger, looser tops though so played safe. It would fit the 20 –22 its supposed to as its pretty loose fitting. The bottom covers my hips and flares out so doesn’t pull over tummy – not a good look 😉

Its pretty well finished, a couple of loose threads that needed snipping but nothing major, the seams and hems are overlocked so will stretch with the fabric. I can’t find any laundering instructions, but don’t see why it can’t be machine washed and tumble or line dried. That’s what mine will get and I’ll update when its had a few wears.

Stars: Five, pretty and practical summer top.

This one was ordered for granddaughter Beth, she’s a size 8 and the S size is fine though it will fit a size 10 as its a loose design with a lovely flare to the hips.
Yidarton clothes I’ve had have all been pretty close to size, being generous rather than too small. That’s a real treat when so many amazon clothes are just too small.

Its a really pretty top, in  a thinnish knit cotton that has some stretch to it. It comes in three colours, and Beth chose the white. The lace part is lovely, a beautiful design on the back in a dark, dense black  cotton with some leather effect inserts – I’ve shown a close up of it. In the sun you’ll need to use sunscreen if you don’t want a tattoo type tan on your back – personally I think it’d be pretty! I love this heavy lace effect, I have a few tops with it now.
The fabric is  quite thin and will show through of you’re wearing a bra, though the way the back is designed that’s not really an issue. Its a good length, skimming hips and the gentle flare makes it a flattering design. we had some sniggers when one of the kids asked which was round it was worn, well with no bra you’d be pretty daring to wear the lace panel at the front though the boys liked the idea!!
Its pretty well finished, a couple of loose threads that needed snipping but nothing major, the seams and hems are overlocked so will stretch with the fabric.
I can’t find any laundering instructions, but don’t see why it can’t be machine washed and tumble or line dried. That’s what this will get.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
