The 10 Best Towels For Wrapping Yourself In Luxury
By Camryn Rabideau
There’s no underestimating the importance of a good bath towel. If you’ve ever used one that’s too small or too thin to dry yourself off, you know this all too well. And while many bath towels might seem indistinguishable from one to the next, there’s actually a tremendous range in terms of quality. Once you upgrade to the best bath towels—the biggest, plushest and/or most absorbent—you’ll never want to go back to those thin, undersized ones you might have been using.
From the super-plush to the ultra-lightweight and everything in between, the following are some of the best bath towels on the market right now. The right towel for you is sure to be on the list.
Best Bath Sheets
Extra Large Towels That Wrap Around You More Comfortably
Cariloha Bamboo Bath Sheet
Size: 40-by-70 inches
Weight: 600 GSM
A bath sheet is similar to a towel, but it’s considerably larger—by nearly two feet—so it wraps around you more comfortably. Made with viscose from bamboo, these particular bath sheets from Cariloha are carbon neutral and have superior moisture-wicking properties that help them dry quickly and eliminate unwanted odors. At 600 grams per square meter, this cult-favorite bamboo bath sheet is beloved for ultra-soft feel and large surface area, with reviewers calling it “the softest thing ever.”
What Should I Look For When Buying Bath Towels?
When buying bath towels, it’s all about the details. Two towels might look the same when stacked on the store shelf, but there are a few key things that will set them apart. First, look at the size of each towel, which is typically printed on the tag. An average bath towel is typically around 30-by-56 inches, give or take a few, and anything smaller will probably be insufficient for the average person. If you like your towels on the bigger side, you might consider investing in a few bath sheets as well, which usually measure closer to 40-by-70 inches.
Another factor to consider is towel weight, which is measured in grams per square meter or GSM. For most people, these numbers will seem fairly abstract—after all, we have nothing to use as a point of reference. Just keep in mind that an average bath towel is usually in the ballpark of 500 grams per square meter. As this number goes up, towels get heavier and more plush, which means they’re soft to the touch, but they’ll take longer to dry. And as the number goes down, towels may feel thinner and less plush, albeit quick-drying.
