For the past year, hugs have been few and far between. And while I never considered myself to be affectionate in the "Before Times," spending most of my time alone in quarantine has made me realize how much I miss physical touch.

While the COVID-19 vaccine rollout has begun, the pandemic is still here, so it will still be months before spontaneous hugs, high fives, pats on the back, etc. are a part of everyday life.

Right now, wrapping myself in one of Resorè's fluffy bath towels when I get out of the shower is the next best thing. The generous body towel makes me feel warm and safe because it's made with eco-friendly bamboo rayon and plant-based fibers. There are also anti-bacterial textiles like Silverbac and Tencel Lyocell size, which help to prevent body acne and oil without irritating skin.

I don't typically get body acne, so I can't speak on whether the towel's anti-bacterial benefits truly offer prevention, but I do think it's helped minimize the number of ingrown hairs I get on my bikini line (ingrowns can be linked to bacteria) and I can back up the claims that you don't need to wash these towels as often.

I'm going to be real: living in a New York apartment with in-unit laundry is a pipe dream, unless you're on a Real Housewife budget. And I loathe schlepping my laundry to the laundromat — even if I do wash and fold. These towels stay pristine white for a couple weeks. (Three is the longest I've gone, don't judge me.)

The catch is these towels will set you back $99 a piece. The price gave me sticker shock since I've been buying towels in bulk at Target for years. So, why spend so much on a towel? It's soft, like softer than silk pillowcases or that stranger's Pomeranian you pet in the park. And during a time that's made us all hyper-aware of germs, it offers the sense of security that you're not spreading any when you shower.

Trust me, touch this towel and then you'll get it.
