There’s no greater luxury than getting out of the shower and wrapping a soft, cozy towel around you.

However, as plus-size person myself, I can tell you that finding a towel that fits right isn’t easy. When I scrolled by a video on TikTok from creator Mary Fran, I was reminded of how frustrating it can be to stand in the towel aisle at a big box store and try on towels in hopes of finding the right one.

A standard bath towel is 56 inches long. A bath sheet, which is the next size up,  measures roughly 70 inches long. Based on average U.S. clothing measurements, a bath sheet should cover up to a women’s size 30 or 4X and and a men’s size 5X.

Because clothing sizes for both women and men can vary wildly across brands, bath sheets will work for those whose widest body measurement is around 65 inches, give or take a couple inches.

For people whose measurements are wider than 65 inches and wear up to a women’s size 40 or a men’s size 8X, go for a bath towel that measures up to 80 inches long.

Because everyone out there deserves some spa-like comfort, here are the best extra large bath towels that are plus-size friendly.
