No, no, it's nothing like that. We had that kind of question in here way too many times LOL No, mine is about something completely different. I just had a shower and I am now all cocooned in my huge bath towel. I really prefer the big ones. Towels that is :) I couldn't use one of those that look like a stamp LOL I roll myself in the towel and feel nice warm and comfy :) I prefer those really soft ones too, although I know that they don't dry us as well. So.. what about you? Big or small? Do you have a preference?

Big and soft, but not too heavy. Do you have a towel warmer? Our teeny bathrooms don't have enough space for such extravagances, but where we live it isn't necessary, as it is pretty hot all of the time, Sometimes, though, in the cooler months I warm the towel up with a few passes of the hair dryer.

Yes I prefer that they fit the not too heavy part as well. I had a towel warmer back home. But no space in here. SOmetimes hubby warms the towel in the dryer for a bit while I"m taking the shower and brings it to me really nice warm and fluffy :):):)

I have a big round head, so definitely I prefer a big towel. It has to be big enough to wrap me from head to toe. The issue is big towels are often heavy to wash too

Im with you!LOL I only use the big soft towels. I can dry my hair and body with one towel. If I was using a little thin towel forget it. I would have to use two.

I actually use a small towel for my hair and the big one to wrap all over :) Even when I had my favorite one with a hood I would still use the small one for the hair.

Colors on towels are not good for your skin. The best would be not bleached natural cotton...

I prefer big towels, in which I could wrap myself comfortably and could feel the warmth of a towel. I do not like small towels, I find it difficult to wipe out my entire body with small towels, bigger the towel, it would be better for me. I prefe white towels, so that when it become dirty, I can immediately send it for washing and change it.

I can see that most of us prefer to wrap ourselves in a cozy big towel. I like your idea of the white towel because you're right, it's easier to see when it's dirty.

arka, I buy bath sheets for myself. Egyptian cotton, since I am the only one to use them, and they are a bit pricey I take very good care of them and normal have about 5 in my linen closet. The boys do not give a chit what they dry with so wal-mart specials do them just fine. Moms need a little pampering even if it is something as simple as a towel to dry off with.

I so agree with you LOL Mine are usually a bit more pricey than the rest, but they just don't care about the big nice ones.. and I guess I"m entitled :)

I prefer big ones. The bigger, the better! I especially like beach towels. I love wrapping myself up in it after taking a shower. It's so nice and cozy!

I prefer big towels! I loves being wrapped up in a nice big fluffy towel right after a bath. Maybe it's just nostalgia from when I was little, when all towels were big..but that's meh. =)

After a nice long shower,I like to relax by wrapping a big,warm fluffy towel around me and then lounge for awhile.Usually I will listen to some music and travel in my mind.

I like that too, and that's why a small one won't do :) The music and the visualization sound like a perfect idea :)

I like the medium sized ones that I can wrap around my body. I hate it when all the good ones are dirty and I get down to the ratty small towels lol. We did get some for Christmas that are too big though. Take up to much room and to long to dry.

During the summer I dry them outside. But you're right in the winter they do take a bit longer, but I just have to take those really big ones. I love them :)

I'll take the big towel and if it has a hood that is a bonus. I'm glad this isn't one of those other kind of topics. I almost skipped it.

Not too small definitely. That would be like a face towel. :P But not too big either. That is just "wasteful" and it quite gets into the way. I usually use the size that is generally found - whatever that size is supposed to be. LOL

LOL myLord, you don't like one of those nice big ones ? You're ruining my statistics LOL Ok, so far 99% of the members responding prefer them big :) I used to like the regular sized ones, but I noticed that with time they started to be smaller and smaller, I guess it's a good way to make us pay the same price for a smaller size :)

Hello there arkaf, it's been awhile since I last get involved in your discussion. It's great to see you here, hope you are still active in mylot. I'm sort of been back here for quite some time and I intend to stick for good, LOL. I don't know if I've answered your discussion here. But if you ask me, I like those that are big and fluffy.. I dislike those that have woolly effect but don't really dry you. I think those rather expensive towels have good quality and I don't mind splurging a bit for my dryness.

Hello arkaf. I love it big and soft. It makes me feel more comfortable after a shower, especially in the cold weather. This way I won't feel cold, but warm instead.

Bathing is one of the thing I like the most. I love to dance and sing while bathing. I like big towels not that big, but little bigger than the medium one. I like soft towels. Sometimes I like to wrap myself in the towel and stay inside my bedroom for a few minutes.

i don't mind how big or small is the thing, but, its uses... because no matter how small it is but it is important and a necessity i think you'll be searching and using that thing...
