When it comes down to choosing a towel, many consumers tend to avoiding towels that are too thin or too light. When towels don't have enough absorbency for water, it easy for a towel to soak everything up and not provide you with any absorbency. You might find yourself having to use several towels, just to dry off. Picking up a thicker towel can be a great way to make sure that you can dry off efficiently and have a towel that will last over a longer period of time.

Thicker Towels usually utilize dense fibers. The denser the fiber, the more space to hold water, and, therefore, the more absorbent.

However, a towel that is far too thick has its own problem - there will be too little airflow. When there is an issue of extremely low airflow, it creates an environment in which germs can quickly grow, and the towel that you own can start to pick up various odors.

If you have thick towels, make sure that they are appropriately washed and dried frequently. The big drawback to choosing a towel that is above average in thickness is that you could be introducing extra drain on the environment (and probably your money and/or time) due to the added water and energy for regularly washing them.

When choosing a towel, it's best to find balance. The best towels have a thickness that allows for absorbency that will dry your body while also allowing for enough space between the fibers for the towel to dry quickly.

Based on experiments completed with demographics from a wide range of genders, sizes, and ages, the best format for a towel is a 650 GSM measurement. This measurement represents the sweet spot between a towel with excellent airflow and dense construction.
