Every now and then, I go on a search for the perfect bath towel. It usually takes awhile, because I think you need to break in a towel a little to know how it will hold up! Today, I am going to share my tips on how to choose the best bath towels. After performing my own “unscientific towel review”, I tell you which ones I liked the best…
Consider these things when choosing the best bath towels for you:
In my home, I prefer white and not just because Nate Berkus says so! Actually, I like white because that’s what goes best in my master bathroom.
After all, you need to dry off right? I like the towel to start doing its job right away. I’ve tried some that just seem to push the water around on your skin…not ideal.
Sometimes when they are too fluffy, they feel like a blanket just sitting on you. In my experience, I find that those tend to be the ones that don’t absorb very well.
I like to wrap the towel around me comfortably so a light to medium weight works best for me. When they are too heavy, they get bulky and fall off.

In my search for the best bath towels, these were my front-runners:
Royal Velvet and Nautica (which I found at Bed, Bath and Beyond)
Both brands are soft but not too fluffy, absorbent and not too heavy. They are very reasonably priced too. The only flaw is they have a little of that “fuzzies in the dryer adjustment period”. But hey, I can live with that!
What is your criteria to choose the best bath towels?
