Towels were surprisingly thin coming out of the packaging however after I immediately washed them they fluffed up nicely and are very soft. I've used them and they are a nice towel set for everyday or guest use. Wash them first before you judge.
Just received this set today so can't comment on performance yet. But I did want to say something about the color. I have been looking for a brighter yellow to complement my daughter’s master bath. When I saw the picture, and the name ‘Sunshine Yellow,’ I thought this would be perfect! But no, this is actually a very drab yellow and darker than pictured. Since I ordered this for Valentine’s Day (an unusual gift, I know) I’m going to give it to her anyway and hope she can make it work.
I will not buy any other towels. The Nautica towels are the softest and fluffiest towels I've ever touched. Even wash after wash they still hold up. I have had a brown set for over seven years and they are still like new. I just purchased white ones for my downstairs bathroom and love them just the same. I will not get rid of them. Worth every cent!
