where do you get your towels?

packing for a holiday recently revealed that our bath sheets are both too few and too shabby. Job for today is to replace. Is it worth spending £££ or is there no difference with Primark or the supermaerkets?

I find that the supermarket "luxury" towels stay thicker and softer for longer. From time to time you can get certain colours at reduced prices.

We get sale Christie ones usually and they are noticeably thicker than the odd supermarket ones we’ve bought.

Primark I find are excellent
IKEA also good

I have had Dunelm towels for over 10 years and they are only now starting to look shabby. Sainsbury's ones are washing well and so far are pretty good.

Marks and Spencer’s quick dry towels are great.

Brandalley have got some good discounts on Christie towels at the moment (or did when I bought some last week at least)

I’ve had very, very expensive towels in the past, but to be honest, the nicest ones I’ve found for texture and size (huge bath sheets) is Asda. Great range if colours as well!

Bought a bundle from next a couple of weeks ago, absolute shite. Thin, small, crap.
But I bought some from the range and from B&Ms and they are amazing, wash well, thick, fluffy, lovely and not at all expensive.

Christie or Ralph Lauren from TK Maxx

LandsEnd in the sale

Ikea, great prices for what you get and I find the towels always stand the test of time.

My husband did a bunch of research on this recently (haha) and found that the Tesco ‘luxury’ range are really well rated. We got those and they are v nice.

Fir holidays I get the thinner sports towels from sports direct as they dry fast and are light

I bought some from Tesco - Fox & Ivy (I think) - they’re excellent, very thick.

I've had some nice ones from Sainsburys. Most of my current sets are from John Lewis.

I bought some towels from tk maxx a couple of years ago. They were weird sizes and one of them came undone and fell apart, after a few months. Not impressed.

Christie from TK Maxx

Another one for superman towels. Still going strong 7 years on.

I second B&M lovely towels and colours.
