I’m a size 10/12, and if I got something that was a 1x/2x, I would be embarrased!  If it’s an XL, that’s fine, but I don’t think of myself as plus-size. If a friend were to give me a plus-size robe (even if it fit the sizing standard), I’d definitely think she thought that I was fat.  Which is probably true, but I would be a little hurt! Sorry!

Yeah an XL would definitely be okay! I buy myself some XL shirts and have no probs with that.

I’m kinda insecure about my body/weight since I put on about 10lbs post wedding. If your girls are confident and love their bodies I bet they wouldn’t have a problem with 1x sizing!

@bb1646:  One thing to keep in mind is that dress sizes are usually a bit larger than their regular sizes. So they would probably need a size smaller than the dress size indicates.

@bb1646:  just cut out the tags with the size on them. Noone will ever know 🙂

Where are you getting your robes from? I got my brides maid robes custom made (at a very awesome price) and there won’t be a size on any of the robe as I am giving the measurements to the maker. If you would like me to give you the website or show you a pic. I’d be glad to.

I don’t get how someone can be offended over their size if it fits them. It is what it is. If you’re that worried about it, just cut the tags out before you give it to them.

As a plus sized girl I would care more about the sweet gesture of the robe than the size you got me. If it’s too big GREAT if it fits just fine GREAT! 

I got robes for my girls and I’m not so worried that they’ll see what size I got them, I just want them to fit and feel loved.
