Determine Your Ideal Size and Weight for Your Luxury Bath Towels
Two of the most important features to consider when choosing high end bath towels are the size and weight of the towels.
Luxury Bath Towel Weight
Luxury bath towel weight is measured in grams per square meter (GSM). Here are the average bath towel weights:
- Lightweight Bath Towel - 300-400 GSM
- Medium Weight Bath Towel - 400-600 GSM
- Heavy Weight Bath Towel - 600-900 GSM
Typically, the higher weight towels offer a plush material that is denser and more absorbent than the lighter weight bath towels. Top performers and high-end bath towels are typically in the 500-700 GSM range.
Luxury Bath Towel Dimensions
High end bath towels come in a variety of sizes, so you will want to determine what size is best for you before you begin to shop for bath towels. The two main sizes of bath towels are called a standard bath towel and a bath sheet.
- Standard Bath Towel – Measure around 27” x 52”
- Bath Sheet – Measure around 35” x 60”
A standard high-end bath towel is what most people use, however bath sheets are becoming more popular every day with those who want more coverage to be able to fully wrap up in the towel after a shower or bath.
