I have been keeping my eye out for lightweight robes to use as bridesmaids’ gifts. I want to monogram them for my BMs. I just checked out walmart.com and hit the jackpot! I don’t know about the quality of these robes (I will repost when I get them in a few days) but since I’m looking for something really lightweight for my June wedding I think it will be OK.
I bought 6 robes for $83.85 which includes tax and shipping. Woo hoo!!!
Here is a link…they have a ton of different colors, I got the teal splash because it seemed spa like. I was also concerned that the white robe might be too see-through, though I toyed with the idea of getting white for everyone and using different colors for their monograms.

@HisIrishPrincess: You’re welcome! I just ordered another one…in white…because I had a flash of what a cute picture it would make with my BMs in their blue robes and me in the white one 🙂

Got them today!
The white one is a little see through–I haven’t tried it on yet, but it’s not something I would wear without a bra/tank top in front of anyone other than Fiance.
The blue ones are cute! They are more teal than the light spa blue/tiffany blue I was envisioning, but I really like them. The fabric is pretty thin, but that’s what I was looking for. Nothing luxurious but for $12 I was really impressed!!!

Very awesome!!!! Thank you for sharing your awesome find!
I had purchased a silky kimono robe to wear for my “getting ready” pictures and well to get ready! hehe! But when that came it was more “sexy” than anything and way too short, and definitly didnt like to stay put! So I most definintely might be doing this now!!! Pls update with your final robe!!!

I just wanted to update this thread to say that after thinking about it and trying on the robes, I decided to return them. They are really thin and they do look like they were inexpensive. The blue color is also much more teal than I was envisioning. When I thought about the cost of monogramming (I was quoted around $8 each) I decided I’d rather get them higher quality gifts (even if that doesn’t turn out to be a robe).
However, for anyone who is thinking about purchasing these (because they ARE a great deal, I just think they wouldn’t pass for expensive spa robes) I think they run pretty true to size. I wear a 6 (sometimes 4, sometimes 8) and the small fit me just fine.
