These towels are not what I expected for the price. I have had them for approximately two years and they are literally falling apart. I don't know if they were washed too often or if bleach may have done damage, but in any event, they are full of holes, they tear when you try to dry off and they look as if I have had them for 10 years.
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.
