Brief History: The Voluptuous Woman Company (VWC) was born in 1997 "to celebrate the plus-size woman by providing information and visibility for them". The base operation works out of Maryland. In 2003 they added apparel and accessories to their repertoire. In July 2005 they created their first product, a bath wrap, for obvious reasons. There isnít a proper towel without dolphins on it to wrap around our bodies.

Comments: The towel material is very plush 100% terry velour fabric. Iíve never seen this type of terry. I'm looking forward to using it even more in the colder months. I've always hated stepping out of a warm shower and quickly wrapping myself in a bath towel that doesn't fit my body. In winter I have to rush to get out of the bathroom. It's pretty warm here at the moment but I just slipped it around my waist when I became too warm. Iíve washed it twice with my regular white towels and put it in the dryer. There was a tiny bit of shrinkage but the towel is long enough that there is no peek-a-boo-age. Itís pricier than I expected but itís not like you will need more than one or two and I have a feeling, if taken care of it will last more than a few years. Like all Velcro if you donít close it before you wash it, it probably wonít hold up.
Satisfaction: High! I'll tell you right off, this is going to at the top of my recommended products. I'm 5'8" 300+lbs and this wrap covered all the vital parts securely. Iíve even fallen asleep in it. I'm sure it will be one of their best sellers. Iím hoping theyíll consider making a robe with the same fabric. Treat yourself and spread the word. Be sure to let the spas in your area know so you don't have to feel embarrassed or carry your own with you.
Update: Unfortuntely this company went out of business but you can find a listing for plus size bath wraps on this Products for Big People lens.
