Comfortably Clean: Bath Tubs Designed for Maximum Relaxation


I’m more of a shower kind of guy. In and out like a human car wash. But occasionally, the idea of taking a leisurely warm bath sounds downright sumptuous. I live in an old Victorian condo that came with a claw foot tub nearly as old as the house.

I am too big to stretch out comfortably, yet still small enough to slide underwater like an olive bobbing in a martini glass whenever I attempt to move. Therefore, when I decided to take a bath on vacation this past holiday in a modern 21st-century tub, I was disappointed to find the same Goldilocks-esque dilemma of feeling both too large and too small.
