Unscientific Towel Review

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 perform!
Towel Review and My Favorite Towels
My requirements are as follows:

White - Not just because Nate Berkus says so, but because that's what goes best in my master bathroom.

Absorbent - I like the towel to start doing its job right away.

Not too fluffy - Sometimes when they are too fluffy, they feel like a blanket just sitting on you and I find that they don't absorb very well.

Light to Medium Weight - I like to wrap the towel around me comfortably.  When they are too heavy, they get bulky and fall off.

I have tried many different brands.  I thought for sure that the Pottery Barn towels would be perfect because hey - it's Pottery Barn.!  Everything is perfect in that store!  But I am sorry to say, that their towels were not perfect for me.  They are very well made but heavier than I like.  They did wash well and didn't seem to have that adjustment period where all the fuzz comes off in the dryer for a few washes.  But my search continued.  Sorry Pottery Barn...I still love you!

My Favorite Towels
I actually found two favorites in my search.

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 favorite towel?
Please follow along so you don't miss a post!

  1. Towel fuzz is the worst! My husband looks like Santa if he has a little stubble!

  2. Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate you comments. And, it's so nice to see someone else has a thing about towels, I'm the same way with my sheets. If they aren't just right, I won't buy them. I've actually been purchasing both at HomeGoods, for the last couple of years. Their variety of good quality is really great,and of course at the right prices always.

    Have a great week and hope you stop by again soon.

  3. I have a horrible time choosing towels! In fact, our last set got threadbare because I just couldn't commit!

    Thanks for the towel recommendations. I'm on the lookout for towels for the kids' bathroom. I've been to Bed Bath & Beyond, but there was such a huge selection, I didn't know where to start! lol! I really don't know why I struggle so much with towels..it's the only thing I can't seem to choose in life! :)
