Hello, and welcome: Today, I’m going to talk about post-shower sweating. Not the sweating that happens when you’re showered, dried, back in clothes, and living your life post-shower. No, I’m talking specifically about the type of sweating that happens when it’s so damn hot out that the moment you step out of the shower you immediately start sweating again. It’s gross, it’s annoying, and it’s pretty much unavoidable when your home is as hot and humid as it is outside. The only thing you can really do is make sure your towel is as lightweight as possible. I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do when it’s this hot out is wrap myself up in a plush towel. Give me the lightest, most absorbent thing you have. Give me… waffle weave.

For the uninitiated, waffle weave towels and robes are made of your standard cotton, but they’re woven in such a way to make them ultra breathable. The resulting honeycomb weave allows maximum airflow, so the towels dry much faster than normal terry cotton towels, plus have a super lightweight feel. I’m personally a huge fan of waffle weave, which is why I’m pretty excited to announce that Brooklinen just dropped their own waffle weave bath towels and robes to round out their impressive bath collection. Check out the new products below—and here’s to hoping Brooklinen will launch even more waffle products in the future!

Waffle Bath Towel Set

Like all waffle weave towels, Brooklinen’s are distinguished by their honeycomb texture. Not only does this design make them able to quickly absorb water and dry in no time, but it makes them pretty nice to look at, too. They’re made in Turkey from 100% Aegean cotton, and come in four colors—including pink! One of my favorite things about Brooklinen is that they sell their towels in sets of two rather than individually (because who needs just one towel?), so you can score a set of 2 for $59. Bath sheet, hand towel, and washcloth sets are also available.

Waffle Robe

Just like the waffle towels, the new waffle robe is distinguished by its honeycomb weave and super soft feel. (Seriously, how good does this robe look?) Lightweight and breathable, it’s the perfect thing to throw on when you’re out of the shower and getting ready. Unlike the classic plush robes, this one won’t weigh you down—and it won’t hold onto moisture if you put it on straight out of the shower. It’s available in three colors (white, smoke, and graphite) and costs $98, which is the same price as Brooklinen’s Super-Plush robe.
