Are Dry Robes supposed to be big?

Yes, dry robes are typically designed to be oversized or roomy to provide maximum comfort and functionality. Dry robes are often used by swimmers, surfers, or outdoor enthusiasts to quickly change in and out of wet clothing while staying warm and covered. The larger size allows you to manoeuvre easily while changing and also offers the ability to layer clothing underneath. Additionally, the extra space allows for better drying and air circulation, helping to keep you warm and dry after water-based activities. All our Dry Robes are one size fits all, but can be adjusted to the fit you want with velcro strapping.
