This is the second set of these towels I have purchased within a month. The first set was ordered on 2/17 and the second on 3/8. Even thought the style number and vendor SKU are the same the towels are very different. The first set is very luxurious and thick with a wide dotted band. The second set, received yesterday, is much thinner, not as luxurious and has a striped band. I had hoped to use them together, but it is a bit difficult due to the difference in quality. Even the labels inside are different. The ones ordered first on 2/17 say Luxury Egyptian Cotton Bath Towels and the ones received yesterday say Signature Luxury Towels. If you use the same product number and the same SKU, the product should be the same. I am now wondering if the second set is even made from Egyptian cotton as advertised.
I have purchased Egyptian cotton towels online in the past for the same price, and have been very satisfied with my purchases. Not so in this case. These towels are nowhere near as thick or soft as my previous purchases. The problem is that its hard to tell this from the initial item. You really have to wash towels once before youll know how they perform. The color is also rather dull. I wish I could return them, but I doubt its possible once theyre washed. I certainly would never buy these again.
I wish I'd read the reviews of these towels before I bought them. I didn't get the color I ordered and they definitely are not Luxury Egyptian Cotton. The quality is quite poor. Not up to my experience of Overstock.com! And they want me to pay for return shipping!
These bath sheets are really great and only a fraction of the price of bath sheets at other retailers. They are very thick and luxurious. I would definitely buy more. The only negative is the amount of fuzz that comes off during the first couple of uses. However, after a few washings the problem is lessening.
These are beautiful towels. They're soft and lush and very absorbent. My only problem with them, and the reason for a 4 star instead of 5 star rating, is that their listed length of 65 inches is actually not quite 62 inches. Because I wanted a towel that I can wrap fully around me, I chose these for their length. It is disappointing.
