Hotel Collection @ Macy’s – definitely!!!!

The key with keeping big towels nice and fluffy is to use liquid fabric softener and NOT dryer sheets.

P.S. The time it takes to wash/dry totally depends on the individual’s washing machine and dryer.  The person who told you big towels take too long to dry probably has old machines.  Newer washers will spin out more water than older models and therefore less time in the dryer is needed.

I went with the expensive ones from BB&B… they were really fluffy, but I don’t mind drying them longer. I really want them to last!

I have heard the hotel collection at Macys is nice as well but we ended up registering for the Lacoste Towels there

Actually, never use fabric softener with towels at all, it stops them from absorbing water, so you end up with these gorgeous soft fluffy towels that don’t dry you at all.  I liked the Addison towels from Lauren Ralph Lauren at Macy’s, but that’s just me.

Oh my god, I’m in LOVE with the towels we registered for. They were expensive, and we didn’t end up getting them for the wedding, but we loved them so much, we splurged and purchased them after our wedding with the completion offer from BBB:

I think those are them. If you go to the store, look for the bamboo towels with a ribbed pattern and just feel them. They feel like silk, but they’re crazy absorbant, and we’ve never had any problems drying them or anything. They’re just incredibly soft.

These are seriously one of the best registry purchases ever. I’m kind of obsessed with my towels 🙂

Chapstick – I also registered for Santen’s bamboo towels. We live in FL and with the humidity, it takes forever for cotton towels to dry, so with one use they end up smelling musty. We got the bamboo towels, and can use them several times and no smell!

Those are mine! Fiance did the touch test and got to pick, and I agreed–they were the softest in store 😀

I have some Ralph Lauren towels already (I looooove towels) and honestly? After about 40 washes, they look BAD. They’re white, so I’ve tried bleaching, but they pill like crazy. No thank you, not making that mistake again. Sorry ladies 🙂

I have Ralph Lauren towels that pill really badly.  My mom got them for me at Macy’s.  (I have a thing about jumbo towels so whenever she sees them she buys me a couple.)  They’re dark blue and I always end up covered in lint balls whenever I dry with one.
