This would work fine for drying very light-weight things like stockings, panties, or bikinis, but anything heavier will cause it to sag so that everything moves together or sags to the ground. The suction cups slip on tile so I had to wrap the cord around the showerhead and the towel rack and clip it. It held a towel (sagging at a 45degree angle) and the towel pulled out of the twists that are supposed to hold it because it was too heavy. A length of string would have worked better and been cheaper.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Stretches out sufficiently to span bathroom or bedroom corner. I tried using the suction cups to span across the tub, but one fell down and the other held. I didn't want to risk both falling down while I was out, so I really didn't rely on the suction cups holding.
