I bought these towels because the description said "heavy weight & oversized", but they are a big disappointment. The green color is pretty true to what is shown, and I was happy about that, but these towels are not absorbent at all. You wipe yourself off after showering, and you still feel damp all over. It's hard to believe these are cotton. I washed them before using them which fluffed them up, but it did not help as far as absorption. Would not recommend these towels, unless you were going to use them in a powder room just for looks.
