Bathing can never be blissful if you don’t have the perfect bath towel. While the other bath essentials will pamper you with their cleansing properties and refreshing aromas, what will make or break a completely rejuvenating bath experience is the towel you wrap yourself in.

Most towels kill the mood with their rough and unkempt fibers. But what if we told you that the towel narrative has changed big time?

Imagine stepping into the softest towels ever made by humankind after a warm shower. This is what we call post-shower bliss, and it is only a few clicks away from you. But we’re sure you want to know the right things to consider when picking bath towels for your needs. Here’s a guide to buying the best towels for bath, that you don’t want to miss.

Guide To Buying The Best Towels for Bath 

When choosing the right bathing towel, you must ensure that they have the following non-negotiable features as they decide your towels’ longevity and performance. Having said that, all our bath towels are dual side labelled for face and body, for you to prevent germ transfer and skin issues. No matter which Doctor Towels bath towel you choose, be rest assured that you will get the best possible experience.

  1. Towel Material

The type of yarn used in your bath towel dictates important properties such as texture. It is, therefore, always best to choose natural materials, such as cotton, bamboo, banana, and aloe vera yarns. They are naturally antibacterial and have a cloud-soft texture, but we have gone ahead and added an additional antimicrobial layer for extra safety, which makes them quite a hit among towel connoisseurs.

  1. Towel Knit Or Weave

The weave of your bathroom towel is just as crucial as the material as it governs not just its texture but also its breathability and absorbency. Terry, basket, jacquard, waffle, and honey comb are some of the weaves we use to make our range of the softest towels you’ll ever find in the market. Each weave brings its own qualities to the towel to suit different needs of each customer.

  1. Towel GSM (Grams Per Square Meter

This essentially determines the towel thickness & weight. The higher the GSM, the thicker and heavier the towel is. If you’re not too sure which one to buy, these suggestions will help you. 


We recommend having a bath towel combo at home so you can alternate between them and give your skin the gentlest of post-shower treatment:

  1. Terry Bath Towel: These generally have the highest GSM which makes them plush and extremely absorbent. Our terry towels have 600 to 650 GSM and are better than those you’ll find in the market as they possess the two qualities stated above and dry 3 times faster. These are our Bamboo Bath Towels, Banana Bath Towels, and Aloe Vera Bath Towels.
  1. Double Cloth Bath Towels: These are basically 2-ply towels, approximately 550 GSM. The two layers together provide excellent absorbency while ensuring the towel remains lightweight and breathable. 
  1. Waffle Bath Towels & Ultra-Light Slub Bath Towels: These have a GSM of 380 and are extremely lightweight and breathable. They are thus quick dry and perfect for frequent travellers.
  1. Thirsty Towels: Our range of thirsty towels are made with 100% cotton and can wick moisture efficiently. These have the least GSM which makes them highly breathable, lightweight, and of course, quick dry.


Careful buyers also pay close attention to their budget. If you are one of them, remember that towels are also an investment—into your health and well-being. Pick from a range of our towels that are designed to last longer while being in your budget, and don’t waste money on those that give up in a couple of months. When it comes to bath towels, choose the best. Choose Doctor Towels.
