I really wanted to LOVE these towels! The colors were great, the size was perfect and the price was fair. I love large towels that I can wrap myself up in! I was a little worried about the size because stated in another review they said it was 4" smaller than on the website! I bought them anyway after speaking to an overstock agent having been assured the bath towels were truly 30 x 60. Upon receiving my shipment the Bath towels were 30 X 56! I was very disappointed and however overstock credited my order and I kept the smaller set of towels. The towels I ordered were the sand color and are exactly the color I had hoped they would be! They were soft and felt wonderful and hardly any lint in the dryer after the first few washes. I have to say they were TOO SOFT and didn't absorb the water when trying to dry off... it just kind of pushed it around. I figured after being BROKEN IN the absorbency would get better - I have now washed these over 20 times and they are now just started to be the towels I expected. I can say that after all the washes and so on the towels have held up nicely. I say order another set of towels because after all this fuss even with the credit to my account these towels aren't worth the effort I have had to put into them. Towels are made to DRY people off... we shouldn't have to break them in for a month before they do their job.
