Too large, too wide and nothing like the quality I’ve come to love from Aquatalia. Can’t believe they are truly an Aquatalia product. I’m a huge fan of this brand but they did not come close to what i expected.
I used to buy sheets from the big box W store and never knew what I was missing. Good quality sheets make a huge difference in feel and appearance. I’ve washed these a few times and they hold up well and I’ve had no concerns. Will be buying more in the future.
After almost a year of use and many many washes the color is still crisp, stitching is still strong and texture is still smooth. Excellent product, I expect to order again in the future and highly recommend
These pillowcases are very soft, and the fabric is a high quality. I purchased the 1000 thread count cases at the same time, and those are much heavier, but that is what I expected. These are very nice pillowcases and I’m very happy. I’ve had them for a few weeks and they’ve been washed and dried several times with no problems. I just purchased some more for our guest room pillows.
Never have I been so unhappy with a purchase from Amazon, but these sheets are miserable. First, every time they are washed a good part of the sheet is in your lint box. Second, about the fifth time they are washed, you are left with a sandy surf with a multitude of bumps. I was desperate though as they were very few extra long twin sheets to select from about six weeks ago and I was desperate. I realize Amazon can’t check every product, but the quality of this purchase was ridiculous.
I bought these sheets in Twin x-long size for my daughter who was going off to college in August. I didn’t wash them until early August and the seams on the pillow case ripped after just one wash on a delicate cycle. I thought that washing them would soften them up but it just made them rougher because the surface pilled. I wish I had washed them sooner so that I could return them. I expected high quality as they are billed as 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton and I paid a pretty high price for them. ($35.) I am extremely disappointed and would not recommend these sheets to any one.
I had high expectations when I purchased these sheets ~ too high, as it turned out! The sheets wrinkle easily, do not wash well (i.e., they collect lint like crazy) and do not fit my mattress well at all. The color also faded after just one initial wash. I wish I could say something positive about them but I can’t think of anything. I ended up buying a different set and was much happier with my follow-up buy. I wouldn’t recommend these sheets to anyone.
These are terrible sheets!!! The description sounds really good, and the price was OK-not THAT cheap though. We have been using them 2 months, and they are all pilly. I’ve NEVER had cotton do that-only polyester. I expect top quality through Amazon, but this is junk. Will go to Bed, Bath and Beyond for new sheets – after only 2 months.
These are very good quality sheets,really soft. Not for people who like silky feeling sheets,300 count thread give them a slighty rough cotton feel, which I like.The price is very good,especially on sheets that are not easily found.
I love this bedskirt. It is put together nicely. It is all fabric. There is no paperlike middle part. I think that is the best thing since the paperlike ones usually rip. I washed and dried this per package directions. There were a few wrinkles but I’m not picky about that. I bought it specifically to hide the bed frame. If you need it perfectly wrinkle free, you will have to iron it.
I own a 105 room boutique hotel in Arizona and find bed skirts one of the worst things to shop for… ever. I was hoping that these would be crisp, thick, and easy to keep wrinkle free. They’re just not any of these things. Don’t be too fooled by the term Egyptian Cotton… or the thread count. 300 is a decent bed sheet, but not a decent bed skirt. Pima Cotton of course is the best in the world, but adding the word Egyptian sounds all fancy, but in actuality, it’s not. If you want wrinkle-free, which will look cleaner and crisper and nicer, go with something with a high blend of polyester and cotton… like 65% poly, 35% cotton. Again, I’m an owner/operator of a 4-star boutique hotel with 105 rooms and have been for 10 years… so I hope you like the advice here. Ah, in closing, the same goes for sheets… go with 100% cotton for your base sheet and middle sheet… then use a down/synthetic blanket or comforter (depending on the climate you’re in), then your final top sheet should again be a poly/cotton blend and you’ll always have a bed that looks really crisp and smooth and wrinkle-free. Some advice on thread counts too – if you’re living in a hot climate where you’re using a/c a lot, stick with a 185-215 thread count sheet… you’ll save money on a/c each summer.
I have to be honest….when I ordered these I wasn’t expecting much. But I was extremely surprised!!! These are so soft and so absorbent!! If you want a great deal on a great product, don’t waste any time….order these now!!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!
These towels aren’t for the faint of limb. They’re heavy. If you have small kids or elderly people in your home, these might actually be a bit TOO heavy to use. But, our family loves them. They wash perfectly (only one loose loop on 6 towels and this easily trimmed down). The decorative edging and band don’t shrink up or pucker after washing, so the towels still lay nice and flat. They’re moderately soft (not nearly as soft as bamboo/cotton blend) but not as stiff as the towels available in target and Bed Bath & Beyond. I give the moderate softness a 4/5, but the other aspects are a solid 5/5.
Best part is that they can be bleached, so there’s no worry if you dry a knick or cut on your skin, unlike other pale colored towels.
The towels are soft, plush, extremely absorbent, very good quality. I can’t find comparable quality anywhere! I bought two towels, and then bought two more when I realized how good they were. I would definitely recommend these to family and friends.
These are without doubt the thickest towels I’ve ever owned. They are the same thickness if not thicker than 5 star hotel towels. I washed them before I used them due to the other comments about having fuzz which are common with new towels. After the wash I used them right away and they are great. One gripe is that the towel was smaller than I expected. I guess I’m used to "bath sheet" sized towels now.
- Very absorbent
- heavyweight, feels great
- great quality
- not too much shedding in the dryer
- Smaller than expected
- not as white as I expected
I always have a difficult time buying presents for my mother-in-law. I noticed on my last visit that she needed new towels. She lives alone and didn’t need towel sets. Just a couple of really plush bath towels. These are perfect! Really large, very plush. Shipping time was about a week.
I read quite a few of the reviews on this product on the Amazon website and was a bit apprehensive about what I might get, but I took a chance. I am so glad I did!!!!!! They are beautiful quality towels and they LOOK it!!!! BIG size and cotton that is of the highest grade. They are a bit heavy but they do weigh 900 GRAMS!!!!!! I bought two for myself to have monogrammed for use as nice spa towels and two more for a couple of friends in Austria. I plan to have those monogrammed also and present them with these towels when we go to the spa in Rome during my stay in February 2014. I wanted to give them a nice welcoming gift and I am so glad I chose these Superior brand towels. I read some reviews that said they sloughed off during the first three washes. This did NOT happen with mine!!!!! There was no string left in my washer after the first washing and there was very little lint in the dryer filter after they were dried. They came out of the dryer all soft and fluffy and I used NO fabric softener in the wash!!! These are the best towels I have ever purchased. I was afraid I had spent too much, but now I intend to buy some more. Highly recommend!!!!!!
These are wonderful towels: substantial, very absorbent and quite soft [I have used softer towels, but these are soft enough]. Sort of followed the advice about first washing in COLD water with white wine vinegar [I used FOUR cups per load] and then washing with my usual detergent, in my case WISK. None of the reported issues with regard to odor – mine came out just fine. I NEVER use fabric softener with any towels. So pleased, I just ordered another set.
