These are not overisized towel, but they are perfect for they are designed to so; which is to dry you off after a bath or shower. I love the size because i am not having to wash a load of towel (4 bath sheets and 4 wash clothes) every other day. I have used them for about a month and they have held up in.
Really like these towels. They're beautiful and thick. The only thing I don't like is the amount of lint. They will clog up your dryer on first washing, and possibly second. I washed them all first, and then found that after drying myself with them, they leave a bit of this lint on your body. You don't notice until you put lotion on, and tiny lint balls appear all over your skin. I hate this - have had this before with some towels. The only solution seems to be to wash them several times before use. I believe, after 3 washings, this problem has been alleviated. Other than this, they are very nice and seem to be well made. I would buy them again - just knowing I have to wash them at least 3 times before using them. And because of this, I would hesitate ot buy them as a gift for someone else.
