Our Loungers are relaxed-fit and oversized robes with an open front and drop-shoulders. They feature lined, extra long sleeves that look best turned up to three-quarter length. Our free sizing is intended to compliment most body shapes and sizes. The fabric gives a beautiful drape to the modern box shape and oversized sleeves.
