What is a Bath Sheet?

Let’s be honest, there’s nothing that compares to the bliss of stepping out of the shower and wrapping yourself in a fluffy, just-right bath towel.

However, you may be surprised to hear that there is an ultra-plush alternative to your standard-size bath towel that’s bigger, better and a true treat for your at-home spa routine. Enter the bath sheet.

What’s the Difference Between a Bath Towel and a Bath Sheet?

Bath towels may be considered the standard essential in any bathroom however it’s a little-known spa secret that the ultimate upgrade to your luxury bath linens includes a bath sheet for true full-body coverage.

The main difference between these two towel types is sizing. At Home Treasures, our standard-size bath towels are 30x52” while our bath sheets are 36x75”. Both sizes are made of the same plush and absorbent terry cotton material we all love however bath sheets offer considerably more surface area. While we highly recommend adding the bath sheet to your collection, there is a time and place for both the standard bath towel and the bath sheet.

When to use a Bath Sheet

  • Post shower or bath: There’s nothing cozier than a warm, full-coverage bath sheet to wrap yourself up in after stepping out of the tub.
  • Poolside: While you may be accustomed to grabbing a beach towel when drying off at the pool or hot tub, a bath sheet’s ultra absorbency and extra body coverage make it worth the switch with a much cozier, quicker dry-off period.

When to use a Bath Towel

  • When drying hair: A standard-size towel is the perfect size for drying even the longest of hairstyles. Using a bath sheet in this instance would likely be unnecessarily heavier, bulkier, and more cumbersome.
  • At the gym: Bath towels offer enough surface to dry you off after a quick shower but are smaller, lighter, and easier to travel with in your duffle bag.
