these are great towels except for the fact they are described and sold $$ as bath size 30" by 60" when they actually measure 30" by 56" ...the plastic bag they come in says 30" by 56" for the bath size the 56" ones are cheaper ... do they actually measure 56" i feel i was cheated out of my money

I disregarded the bad reviews and now I think that your stock runs from good o bad on the same item, as some reviews were good. This items will be returned. I washed them and they shed a lot. When I took them out of the washer one hand towel had unraveled 10 out of the 20 inches. It had shredded deep into the towel. The bath towels have loose loops ad in one area it is bold spots. The trim shrunk more than the towel and it is beginning to pull and has lose threads.. I had to run an empty washer full cycle and still had to clean debris. I had to clean the dryer filter 4 times! during a 60 mts. drying period. the fact that some are fair means that they use different quality material and mix the batches. I would not even considering donating them as it would be a disservice.

I really wanted to LOVE these towels! The colors were great, the size was perfect and the price was fair. I love large towels that I can wrap myself up in! I was a little worried about the size because stated in another review they said it was 4" smaller than on the website! I bought them anyway after speaking to an overstock agent having been assured the bath towels were truly 30 x 60. Upon receiving my shipment the Bath towels were 30 X 56! I was very disappointed and however overstock credited my order and I kept the smaller set of towels. The towels I ordered were the sand color and are exactly the color I had hoped they would be! They were soft and felt wonderful and hardly any lint in the dryer after the first few washes. I have to say they were TOO SOFT and didn't absorb the water when trying to dry off... it just kind of pushed it around. I figured after being BROKEN IN the absorbency would get better - I have now washed these over 20 times and they are now just started to be the towels I expected. I can say that after all the washes and so on the towels have held up nicely. I say order another set of towels because after all this fuss even with the credit to my account these towels aren't worth the effort I have had to put into them. Towels are made to DRY people off... we shouldn't have to break them in for a month before they do their job.

I love this shower curtain. I am female and it is in my male roommates bathroom that I decorated, which is also a guest bathroom. It is not too feminine and not too manly....love it! Sturdy material and just has a great look!

Love this shower curtain. The only thing I didn't expect was for the white stripe to be ribbon material. Still a cute curtain that is well made. I live with a male and he doesn't mind it either.

I am a 6' X 265 pound male and wanted a warm, comfortable robe that would actually FIT! I had previously purchased no less than five (5) different robes to that end without success. This one really fits the bill!

After reading the other reviews about this robe being too big I had hoped that I got the right size for an 5'10" XL male. Turns out the XL is just barely big enough to overlap in the front. It will work but I wanted something a little roomier. The quality of the robe is nice. Much softer after washing. Seams are intact, no shedding. Perfect thickness for a guy that overheats easily.

This rope feels quite luxurious, pretty thick terry cotton but not very heavy - so it may not hold up forever. Ordered the large one on purpose which is a little too big for 5"9, 145 pound male (especially in the arms). We just ordered a second one.

I love this robe. It's soft and plush and thick and I look forward to it coming out of the shower. Be aware that the "unisex" sizing seems to mean male sizing. I am a 5'7", 145lb female, and the small is good on me, a bit roomy like you'd want a terry bathrobe. The sleeves are long, but it's easy to roll up the wide cuff once and you're in business.

we'll see how they hold their color and weave through a few washings............jumped the gun when I wrote a review of previous towel purchase here at OSTK, .....these are the replacements, the others didn't even last 60 days

I am short so this robe is way too long for me but it is comfortable and warm at 60 degrees after getting out of a pool. If you are taller than 5' 5" it should be fine. The material seems to be fraying. That is not what I expected. So I am concerned with the life expectancy of this product!

I highly recommend this product. Lots of quality and what a bargain! The rod on its own is $60 at other big stores. For half this price you get an additional set of hooks and a liner? Sounds great to me. The liner is really good. Looks sturdy and long.

The robe is absorbant but without making you feel sweaty. I have long hair and will be using the hood on the robe in the winter to keep my head warm while my hair is drying. I'm 5'8 and the robes length was between my knees and ankles. I wear a size 14 and am curvy, so the robe doesn't seem to shut all the way around the hips. So it's great if you are a male or a woman who isn't very curvy. Not sure where they get one size fits most. It may fit most people, but not if they want the robe to close all the way.

I was hoping for more quality; this was something I could have easily bought locally and for the same price; disappointed with other reviewer's who raved about this bath rug. Really??? Maybe a reviewer should mention their own age which would be a clue to the rest of us regarding their experience buying such things. I'm 60; I have bought many bath rugs over the years so I have a lot to compare these to.

Shower rods look great. Satin nickel finish looks as advertised. Packaged well. I was a little concerned when I ordered because the item description gives clearance data for 60" and 72" openings, and my bathtub opening is 58". (worried rod would only work for openings from 60-72"). I was pleasantly surprised when I looked at the instructions in the box and saw that this curved shower rod works for openings from 48-72". It's easy to put together, and looks great. I agree with other reviewers that the shower liner smells pretty bad, but what shower liner right out of the package doesn't? Received product 3 days after ordering.

Purchased for 5'10" 220 lb pants size 38 x 30 jacket size 44 male. Just fit around girth and through shoulders-bit snug. Length mid-calf. Colors are true--bought both tan-praline and chocolate-chestnut. Not heavy weight turkish spa type robes but works fine for gift recipient, who does not like heavy weight robes on shoulders nor thick roll-type collars around neck. Have not washed yet. But no open seams and all edges stitched flat seams so should be no raveling. Good inexpensive alternative for the more heavy weight costly turkish robe.

Pros: 1. inexpensive 2. heavy weight 3. dye does not bleed Cons: 1. They maybe too heavy weight. It takes 60 minutes to dry in an electric dryer. Normal towels are 35 minutes. 2. Towels is already starting to fall apart after three washings. Edges are starting to fray. 3. If you live in a humid climate these towels may not dry between usage. After thought: 1. I would buy a lighter towel.

I bought one set of these towels in each of two colors as my new guest towels before a slew of guests. I washed them in advance (major lint filter action), and they showed no fading. Over several weeks, a number of friends and family used these, and I used each of them myself. They are a very pleasingly soft fabric, and they absorb water and then dry out when hung exceptionally well-exactly what you expect from turkish cotton. I was a little disappointed to discover that the amount of texture from the herringbone pattern gives the towel a bit of a scratchy feel if you dry yourself vigorously (think of the classic male move of the towel behind the back, pulling back and forth). I didn't notice this when using the towels more gently, say for shaving or wearing them wrapped around my waist. They have been washed about 6 times, and they may have faded slightly. I was watching for that due to other reviews, but they've held their color; they certainly have no gross color wash-out. I like these towels a lot, and will probably buy a couple of other colors.

My space is a bit over 80 inches so a standard rod wasn't available. I was leary about an expandable rod, but this one proves to be of good quality (so far). One end slides out of the other to expand the length. I would have preferred a different finish as my other metals are all brushed nickel, but I've got the rod pretty high so its not that noticable. My tub is a standard 60in one. it didn't occur to me that this rod would have the curve centered on the 78 in, so it's offset from the 60 in tub. It works okay, and it's my own fault for not thinking the center lines though, but that's why I only gave it 4 stars.

Have washed and used only twice, but there were no reviews yet. These are very substantial towels (might be too heavy for elderly/frail). They washed well (though slight puckering at hems - they still look good hanging on rod) without excessive lint production, and no lint when using. Weave is tight, but thick and quality feeling, and they absorb well. These are labelled "Kassatex Hotelier", and the same towels elsewhere are priced $25 to $60 more (some sites have different names for the colors, such as charcoal instead of the tile grey I purchased - this is a mid-dark grey). Excellent value, would recommend. For those to whom it matters: these say Made in China.
Most bathroom decorators are accustomed to purchasing conventionally sized bath towels. Standard-sized bath towels are usually included as part of a set. Buying a set is often easier on the pocketbook, and there's no need to worry if your bath towels will match your hand towels and wash cloths. Don't scrub the notion of incorporating bath sheets into your bathroom sets, however. Bath sheets, due to their size and volume, add considerable luxury whenever you step outside of the shower or tub.
As far as home linens go, towels are most often taken for granted. The power of a towel shouldn't be underestimated. From the soothing calmness of warm bath towels to the subtle decorative influence of a well-placed hand towel, the unsung heroes of the textile world have more effect on your home than you may give them credit for. Because of this influence towels have on your bath decor, your search for the perfect bathroom accessories should always begin with towels. There are a variety of factors that come together to create the perfect bath towel, mainly fabric and size, and finding a towel that fits these characteristics can be one of your more confusing bath decorating tasks. Don't panic, though. This towel buying guide will help you pick the right towel for every circumstance.

Bicycle helmet safety is the key to minimizing head injuries while cycling, either for recreation or commuting. Some states do not have bicycle helmet laws, although about 150 municipalities nationwide have bike helmet ordinances on the books. Riders and parents living in states with no bike helmet laws must be vigilant to ensure family members are equipped with the proper helmets.
