I bought these towels for the master bathroom. I had nice towels in the guest bathroom but old ones in our master bath. These towels are very thick and plush. It is easy to dry off with them. The only thing of note is that when put in the dryer the first time, they produced LOTS of lint. I cleaned the dryer vent several times before the load was finished drying. I would recommend these towels to others.
Being a man I did not know you needed to wash new towels before you used them LOL. I looked like I was covered with snow when I attempted to dry off after a shower. The towel just pushed the water around on me and left me looking like frosty. Having said that after three machine washings the towels are beginning to perform as I had expected. They are the correct size and weight you would find in higher end hotels and if you wash them a minimum of three to four times before the first use I am sure you will enjoy them too.
These towels are perfect for the person that doesn't want to use a 6 inch thick bath mat to dry off with. They are not too thick, not too thin. Very luxurious without being so thick that you can't wash more than 4 towels at a time in the laundry or use them to wrap up your hair. When washing for the first time, a TREMENDOUS amount of lint does come out of them in the dryer. I had to stop the dry time midway to clean out the lint trap. I was worried there wouldn't be any towel left! But alas, there were still soft just right towels when the cycle was finished.
Absolutely immense and heavy towels. I have seen lighter floor mats! LOL. I have used them a couple times and they absorb well. They wash very well Held their shape. No shrinking or puckering at the bound edges after warm water wash and tumble dry and no stray or pulled threads.. First washing produced very little dryer lint which is very unusual for new towels. Good value for the money paid.
This is a great robe, and so comfortable. Ar first try-on I had decided it was too big for me, but later when I tried it again I loved it. .It is great quality, and I'm sure I'll be wearing it for a long time to come. After a shower in the morning it feels great to slip it on before doing my hair etc. and i use it when I want something comfortable in the evenings. Highly recommend it. Great price, great product.
This was a gift for my wife. I first read all reviews and, admittedly, was quite skeptical. She wanted a reletively heavy terry robe and this one was not rated in either lbs/sqyd or kg/sqm. I found the kg/m3 in the comments, did the math, and took a chance. She loves it and I, therefore, am not disappointed. Since it is new, I cannot comment on durability or quality post laundering. 16lbs/sq yd appears to be accurate for this robe if your into numbers.
I purchased these washcloths because I had a several house guest visiting. Everyone commented on how soft they were and that they were the perfect thickness, not too thin and not so thick and bulky you couldn't hold them. I loved them so much, I purchased the Hotel & Spa Bath Towels and Bath Sheets as well. I would certainly recommend all three items!
These towels are a good value for the price. I purchased two sets of Turkish towels: one set from Overstock.com and another more expensive set from a department store. I wanted two sets and thought I would buy separately to compare the quality.
Pros: The Overstock towels fluffed very nicely after washing and drying and are just as thick and absorbant as the more expensive (name brand) towels.
Cons: They "shedded" much more in the laundry than the name brand Turkish towels. They've only been washed twice and hopefully the shedding of lint will improve.
Considering the price point of the Overstock towels vs. other more expensive Turkish towels, they are a good value for the price and I am happy with my purchase.
A nice light- to mid-weight waffle cloth. The cut is good: fairly long sleeves, nice high collar, plenty of wrap for a normal build (a little more than I need, actually). I'm just under six feet tall, lean (about 150 lbs) with long arms and legs, and the S-M size works well for me, coming to just above mid-calf (proviso: I haven't washed the robe yet; I will do so in cold water, since if it shrinks in length, or especially in sleeve length, it will be too short).
The topstitching / felling along the collar and other exposed seems uses quite a loose stitch, with nearly a quarter of an inch between running stitches. This may be just right for sewing the waffle-weave cotton, but beware of snags. My late wife had a kimono-style robe of similar waffle cloth, with a twill band edging the front and neck, which used much finer topstitching and made a cleaner and sturdier finish. I do prefer the shawl collar style for myself, though. The inside piecing seams and the binding on the cut edges, which are exposed, is done with an interlock/overcasting machine, leaving a raw finish (like the side seams of a polo shirt). I would have rated the garment more highly had the finishing been better (for example, felled or bound edges along the visible inside seams) but that would have driven the price up substantially. As it is the robe is excellent value at the Overstock price.
Order one size larger than you usally get in order for it to have enough fabric to wrap completely. Fabric is heavier than I expected, but it holds up well to washing. I got a coffee stain on robe; use of bleach was not a problem....the stain came out the robe looks like new. Good weight for colder months.
I bought one set of these towels in each of two colors as my new guest towels before a slew of guests. I washed them in advance (major lint filter action), and they showed no fading. Over several weeks, a number of friends and family used these, and I used each of them myself. They are a very pleasingly soft fabric, and they absorb water and then dry out when hung exceptionally well-exactly what you expect from turkish cotton. I was a little disappointed to discover that the amount of texture from the herringbone pattern gives the towel a bit of a scratchy feel if you dry yourself vigorously (think of the classic male move of the towel behind the back, pulling back and forth). I didn't notice this when using the towels more gently, say for shaving or wearing them wrapped around my waist.
They have been washed about 6 times, and they may have faded slightly. I was watching for that due to other reviews, but they've held their color; they certainly have no gross color wash-out.
I like these towels a lot, and will probably buy a couple of other colors.
These are fluffy but huge! I like them, and the match the bath sheets we bought to match, but I didn't realize they were so big. They are not standard US sized hand towels. Also, the stripes are horizontal, which meant we couldn't use any of our previous towel that had vertical stripes, so be warned.
This is an excellent buy for the price. I scoured many websites and found nothing with a hood and 100% cotton. The gray is a very pleasing color. I have washed it twice and it washed very well. I did not have problems with lint. It is really long too ( easily fits a 6ft person )and has a matching belt , which is removable.The stitching is strong. It did not wrinkle much either. I loved it and it is a very well made , heavy yet soft robe. It was shipped and reached on time.I am very happy with this purchase. I wish they made this for women too, in a smaller length.
These towels are thick and absorbent. It holds up great to my water retaining hair wonderfully and it's so soft! The aqua is true to a typical aqua. Lovely and came quickly. So far they are holding up wonderfully and I think I will order the green next! LOVE these! They feel like the $** towels at home stores. Even better. You get 4 of each size which is a superb deal! You will not be sorry with this purchase!
This bath sheet size is HUGE. The thickness is fantastic. The only draw back is the initial lint you get from the first wash and then some extra lint in the dryer trap for the next 1 or washes. Still so worth having to clean the dryer lint trap. I noticed the ice blue color had the most excessive lint issues. All other colors had lint resolved after 2-3 washes and I have all the colors.
I really wanted a robe to put on after water aerobics in the outdoor pool. After reading many reviews I found this one. It is just perfect. Quality is excellent. Very thick, soft and cozy. I am 5' 3" tall. I was worried that the robe would be too long because I am petite. I ordered the small size and it is just right. The length hits me mid-shin and the sleeves are also the perfect length. I am extremely satisfied with the product.
The towels seem very soft and like they would dry well, but the colors are not as pictured online. We ordered them in "Lead" which is supposedly the top color in the online photo of stacked towels, but what we received was much bluer and more like "Graphite" as it appears online. This is problematic because I would like to reorder in a different color but have no idea what color I'd really be getting! Since they completely clash with my bathroom tile, they are going back.
I ordered one set, to see thickness and quality and make further decisions on what to purchase for a swimming pool. I previously worked or a luxury retailer, that sold bath fixtures and towels. I had hands-on experience with towels and knew what to look for. I placed the order on Wednesday, the delivery came first thing Friday. These towels are absolutely beautiful, and exceed my expectations! Perfect hand, plush, absorbent, and should be considered luxury-item! I loved these so much, I'm ordering another (14) for the poorhouse, to stock-pile!
Bought two robes for guests (M and L/XL) -- Found the quality to be excellent and having a good appearance. My wife tried the Med. on for sizing (she is 5'7," medium+ build), she found the med. robe to be slightly snug around the hips, can be used, but she woud prefer a little more room for comfort. The L/XL fit me comfortably at 6'2" and 215 #. I would be happy to receive as gift. Have not washed as of this review to rate appearance or softness after washing. I found the quality better for the price than in local stores.
These towels are big but not too big, and fluffy. They are very soft and feel great on your skin even after a few washes. I would buy these towels again and still may buy a few more for me as well as for gifts.
I was very pleased with the towel cover. It fit over my my five inch existing chaise lounge pad easily and would accommodate a much larger lounge pad as it had a large cap over the top and the bottom was open to accommodate any size. The cover was soft and comfortable and after washing several times it continues to feel soft and had no shrinkage. I would really recommend this cover. I only wish it came in other colors than white!
First, the color was absolutely just as pictured online and is beautiful. Second, I love the waffle look. There were some initial problems with one hand towel arriving with a snag, having caught on the price tag, and Overstock was slow to do anything about, but when I went directly to the manufacturer, they quickly replaced the towel for me and Overstock then removed the shipping charges.
This robe is fairly light weight and I use it after showering instead of towel drying and I can do other things and get out of the bathroom. It is well made and I use it every day and it comes to well below my knees.
Handtowels are the bane of any B&B... often too flimsy, and don't stand up to the demands of a shared bathroom situation. These plush towels are a terrific solution, thick and plush feel, with an ideal contemporary color that stands up to repeated use between launderings.
I love these towels. They are very soft and absorbent. I am pleased to say that they have not snagged easily like some of the other towels I have purchased from local retailers. Excellent quality for an excellent price. I will be buying more.
