Everything You Need to Know About the Difference Between our Bath Sheets and Towels

A good bath towel can turn your bathroom into a spa-like retreat. That’s why it pays to know what kinds of characteristics to look for when purchasing high-quality towels.

Don’t worry. As always, Brooklinen is here to help. We broke down the difference between our best-selling bath towels and bath sheets so you know exactly what you’re paying for before you start shopping. Read ahead for a no-nonsense guide to figuring out the right size of towel for you.

So, What exactly is a Bath Towel?

While bath towels vary in size depending on the manufacturer, our bath towels measure 30-by-58-inches. Bath towels are the most common type of towel that you’ll find on the market, and are usually displayed double or tri-fold style. Perfectly sized for drying off your body or wrapping up your wet hair, bath towels are often too small to fully wrap around an adult’s body. Our bath towels are made of super soft 100% long-staple cotton and come in two textures, Mid-Plush and Super-Plush, to better suit your individual post-shower needs.

So, how do you know if you're a bath towel person? If you want a traditional - but still super luxe! - experience, our bath towels are your best bet and will fit on most standard towel racks!

What exactly is a Bath Sheet?

Basically, a bath sheet is just like a bath towel—but bigger. Our bath sheets measure 40-by-65-inches, providing more fabric to dry off with. Bath sheets are a great option for people looking for an oversized, spa-like towel to wrap their whole bodies in after bathing. Because of their larger size, they’re often pricier than typical bath towels and harder to fold or fit on a standard towel rack. Just like our bath towels, our bath sheets are made of 100% fluffy, long-staple Turkish cotton and come in two different levels of plushness, Mid-Plush and Super-PlushIf you’re seeking that bundled up, cozy, feel-like-a-little-kid in a beach towel, then we recommend a bath sheet!

Before you stock up on high-quality bath towels, take the time to consider what sizes will work best for you. If you’re looking for a versatile towel for everyday use, our fluffy bath towels are a good option. However, if you’re hoping for something a little larger (and more spa-like), our luxury bath sheets are the perfect solution.
