    I know exactly what you mean. We have the $4 towels from Walmart and the really nice ones we got from our registry. I will only use the cheap ones becasue they (IMO) just work so much better…so my husband gets to use the fancy towels. He really wanted to throw my towels away after the wedding and he is still confused why I love them so much.

    @MichiganGirl24:  I put other lol…because when I’m wet and trying to dry I just don’t care haha!

    I earned a 10.00 reward through JCPenny’s so I got a couple of towels 5.00 each and you know what?  I think they are plenty soft and effective!!  Cool

    @MichiganGirl24:  I find that the thick, fluffy towels don’t do much when I’m toweling off. They don’t get all the crevices and I never feel like I’m getting dry. I like towels that are older and “worn in”.

    I agree–the cheap ones just work better!

    @MichiganGirl24:  I love thick, luxurious towels. However, the secret to keeping them “thirsty” is to NOT use any fabric softener.  If you use fabric softener, those kinds of towels do feel as if they’re just spreading the water around.

    i like soft towels. i love what they call “bath sheets”. they’re huge. i can wrap them around me with no issue (i’m plus sized.. regular towels don’t wrap around me).

    My grandma has those microfiber or whatever towels and I hate them. Ours are from Walmart and they’re awesome. I don’t like my towels too fuzzy, I feel like they don’t get me dry.

    @MichiganGirl24:  

    Hmmmm. I thought about the fact that I could be making an incorrect presumption when I posted my prior comment, and I had indeed. Sorry about that. I don’t know of any other potential reasons, other than possibly the inherent hardness or softness of the water in your area or home. However, I have no idea if that would affect different types of towels differently.

    I like soft luxury towels, because I like the way they feel against my skin.  I couldn’t care less about how good they are at actually drying me off.  I prepare to just wrap up in the towel, and air dry anyway.  I couldn’t tell you the last time that I attempted to actually wipe the towel over my body and dry off.  I’m kind of lazy like that I guess.

    I like a wide variety of towels. I have thin, older, cheap towels from JCP that I love – especially after a hot shower it just feels so nice to scrub yourself dry. I have big thick towels that I love when it’s cold out and want to feel snuggled up. I also have some waffle weave towels that are terry on the other side and they’re SO super absorbant and are a nice middle ground.

    I do have a few turkish bath sheets that I hate. I bought them because they look cool, but they’re so thin it just feels like you’re drying off with a tshirt or something.

    I like bleached well worn towels – the fluffy stuff just doesn’t do it for me.

    My parents had incredibly thick turkish towels in my childhood home. When I moved out, I went to a specialty linen store to purchase some and…ummmm $150 for one towel? No thanks. So while I really do appreciate how a truly high quality towel is thick and heavy, the stuff they sell in department stores just doesn’t measure up.

    I go with the cheapo Target towels for now, though I hear good things about Hammacher Schlemmer turkish towels. They’re still about $60 each by the time they get to Canada though. I’ve added two to my cart a handful of times but just cannot justify the purchase without thorough reviews!
