[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This rug is nice and thick. One side displays the looped feature, and the other is fluffier and softer. Both sides are absorbent. It runs the entire length of my tub (plus a little bit more), and it's so nice to have a bath mat at both ends of the shower. It does not have a non-skid side, so be careful if your floors are slippery. The rug is thick and heavy, but it does wash well. The only downside I have it that the loops of fiber come out very easily. However, there are not any bare spots.
