These towels are big, absorbent and a nice weight. They are great for summer because they are not heavy and they make a great wrap around on a hot day. Very cute and my daughters (college age) love them. The fringe is nice too, they wash up beautifully.
I was a bit concerned since they were thin they wouldn't be absorbent. They are absorbent and dry quicker since they aren't as fluffy as standard beach towels. They didn't take as much room as a standard towel either. They are very pretty and look just like the picture.
