Just received this set today so can't comment on performance yet. But I did want to say something about the color. I have been looking for a brighter yellow to complement my daughter’s master bath. When I saw the picture, and the name ‘Sunshine Yellow,’ I thought this would be perfect! But no, this is actually a very drab yellow and darker than pictured. Since I ordered this for Valentine’s Day (an unusual gift, I know) I’m going to give it to her anyway and hope she can make it work.
I will not buy any other towels. The Nautica towels are the softest and fluffiest towels I've ever touched. Even wash after wash they still hold up. I have had a brown set for over seven years and they are still like new. I just purchased white ones for my downstairs bathroom and love them just the same. I will not get rid of them. Worth every cent!
Ok. For the "Nautica" name, I assumed I would get some really plush oversized towels. Not. *** Yes, the towels are oversized. No, they are not plush. I'm a little disappointed but what the heck - I needed towels. I just won't do it again.
These towels are very pretty, and will be for my guests to use. Truthfully, I was expecting a little heavier weave; but they are very nice, and I feel that they will wear well. I chose the light green, and it's even prettier than the on-line picture. Good choice!!
Ordered towel I thought were more a peach in color but when i got them they are a tan color. Lesson learn never order something on for it's color. Returned them and was charged almost $XX on a $XX purchase. Will stick with sites I can return for free or shop in stores.
If you are looking for Ralph Lauren towels that can swallow you in plushnish, look elsewhere. These towels fluff up after laundering and I thank a previous reviewer for mentioning that as when I first felt the towels I was irritated by the thin feel. After laundering they plumped up and I am very satisfied. Having lived with designer towels for years, I can give this 4 stars for being a great value for very good towels. Not all of us can afford Ralph Lauren.
I ordered these to replace several sets of worn out towels. I was expecting, given the brand name, a higher level of quality, despite the price point. This is, after all, Overstock.com. The sheets are thinner and smaller than I was expecting. Yes, I know the dimensions are listed, but still... In addition, when they were washed for the first time, to prepare them for use, they shed an incredible amount of fuzz. I have not used the towels, yet. I will update this review, when I have several use cycles on them.
Towels were surprisingly thin coming out of the packaging however after I immediately washed them they fluffed up nicely and are very soft. I've used them and they are a nice towel set for everyday or guest use. Wash them first before you judge.
