As a plus size person, I can’t use “regular” towels.
The average length of a bath towel from a department store is 54″ long. My hips are 50″ wide, making it so I can’t wrap a towel around me.
It’s annoying, frankly!
While I love a plus size robe (my recs here), sometimes I just want to hang out in my towel while putting on my makeup. Regular towels gape awkwardly, and it’s really honestly a pain.

Where are the Wide Width Bath Towels?
I know I could use a beach towel, but I want an AESTHETIC darling. I have a HOME DECOR vibe. I want to do a sheet mask with a towel on, not feel like I’m on my way to the waterpark!
I’ve FOUND Plus Size Towels!!
When I first started this blog post, I honestly didn’t know what the price range for towels IS. Therefore, I’ve shared a variety of price points in this post.
Below, I’ve shared some of my fave finds for plus size towels. Did I miss your favorite brand? Drop me a line here or via Instagram DM!

Brand #2: Plus Size Bath Towels from Chakir Turkish Linens ($36.99)
I was SO excited when I found these plus size bath towels! They’re 80 inches wide, making them more inclusive. These plus size towels are made from 100% ring spun Turkish cotton. TLDR?

Alternative to Plus Size Towels: Bath Sheets!
While on the hunt for plus size towels, i found out about something called a “Bath Sheet.”
Sounds a little weird, but I’m down to try things!
A bath sheet is basically a lighter weight towel. You use your fluffy towel to dry off after a shower, and then wrap yourself in a bath sheet (thicker than a regular sheet).
Bath Sheet Recommendation: Cotton Craft Euro Spa Bath Sheet ($26.99)
Bath Sheets usually use a “waffle knit” making them absorbent, but still light! These are a great alternative to robes, and they’re often used in spas to be more inclusive.
After searching through Google results, I think the Cotton Craft bath sheets are a good bath sheet to try out. They’ve got good reviews, and are priced at $26.99.
I’ll definitely be taking mine on my next trip, as robes take a lot of luggage space!
