The 4 Best Luxury Bath Towels
By Ileana Morales Valentine
For an easy self-care moment each day, upgrade your bathroom with the best luxury bath towels; they’re soft and plush enough to make showers and baths feel phenomenal. For the ultimate indulgence, go for cotton, but a cotton blend can be more quick to dry than 100% cotton. Along with material, factor in towel density and size to truly achieve a luxurious bath towel.
Known for excellent absorbency and a plush feel, 100% cotton is a great choice, but for a thicker, more luxurious cotton that’s popular in hotels and spas, go for Turkish or Egyptian cotton. These long, dense fibers that get softer, fluffier, and more absorbent after washing make it worth the investment. Just know that thicker, more absorbent towels with a plusher feel tend to take longer to dry, sometimes leading to stinky towels and more frequent washing. For a thick and luxurious, yet quick-drying towel, try a bamboo-cotton hybrid which also has antimicrobial qualities.
When shopping online for towels, knowing the density, or grams per square meter (GSM) will help you choose. For thinner towels that are relatively fast drying yet still absorbent, go for 400 to 620 GSM, or medium-weight. However, if you’re looking for thick, spa-like towels, focus on 620 to 900 GSM.
Towel size can be another luxury factor to consider so you can envelop yourself fully in your soft, fluffy towel. The standard towel size is usually 27 inches wide and 52 to 58 inches long, but one of my picks is as long as 63 inches, but many are even wider than the standard 27 inches.
