I have bought numerous towels over the years both on line and at local stores, and these towels are very big. Big is good for pool side but you will have tons of lint while drying them. More than any other towel I have purchased. Make sure you empty the lint filter on your dryer several times during the drying process. Bought four of these and one had a lot of loose threads on the edges but they cut off ok. The color is nice but they are a bit thin in my opinion. I think they are over priced for what you get.
So the key here is to realize that this says its a cotton bath sheet. Me being oblivious to their being a difference just thought it was a x-large towel. However the operative word "sheet" is important to look at. it is absolutlely massive. It would make a perfect beach towel. However, i have been using it as a regular towel and have come to love the size of it. I enjoy being able to wrap it around me a few times. Just be aware it is absolutely massive in size.
If you want big towels- these are big, if you want soft fluffy towels- these are soft and fluffy, if you want a towel that will actually dry you then dont bother, I've washed them numerous times and its made no difference! so no I wouldnt recommend them sorry!
Lovely big fluffy towel, it's well made, and has a nice weight to it. I find with a lot of towels, it's not quite absorbent enough, but maybe a few times through the wash, and it will get that nice absorbency. It's a really nice size. My bf is 6ft2, so most regular size towels don't come anywhere close to big enough for him.. He was happy with it. It's a nice towel, I would get another one.
These are truly, truly spa quality in feel and size!! I have the blue, pink in the 40 x 80 and the white in 35 x 70. I also love the size of the smaller ones, too and in fact an ordering more of that size now. But having four of these HUGE bath sheets is perfect. NOTE: Wash before using or you will have little bits of towel on you and washing them really helps the absorption. I wash them in cold only, hang and then lightly fluff in dryer and they stay wonderful that way.
This is a very large bath sheet so it really wraps around you. If your a small person it could be too big otherwise its great; also in the wash machine is will take quite a bit of you wash load. I'm glad I purchased it as at the gym it's nice to be covered coming out of the shower. I think men would especially like this bath sheet.
