Looking for the best shower caddy for college? This post is going to show you 10 insanely good shower caddies you won't want to miss out on.
Oh, communal college showers, how I don't miss you. As nasty as they are, you're going to be spending quite a bit of time going back and forth to the dorm room showers *sarcastic yayy*. Okay, don't worry they're not that bad. All of this to say, let's make that not-so-pleasant experience as good as it possibly can be!! You're going to want a towel wrap, a bathrobe, but most importantly, a shower caddy!
Now, this is crucial: get a mesh shower caddy, NOT a plastic one!
I made this mistake my freshman year and got a plastic shower caddy. Here's what happened with that...every time I would shower, water would get stuck in the plastic grooves. I would go back to my dorm room, put the shower caddy on the ground, and five minutes later, there would be a gigantic puddle on the ground. Lucky for you, I found 10 bomb mesh shower caddies that are not only stylish but actually functional!
This post is all about the best shower caddy.
BEST SHOWER CADDY:
1. BEST OVERALL
AMAZON MESH SHOWER CADDY
I may be biased saying this is the best option because it's the one I used while I lived in the dorms (after that whole horrible plastic shower caddy incident). It held everything I could ever need and never caused puddles in my dorm room.
It comes in a ton of different patterns if leopard is not your thing, but I just thought this was so cute. The absolute best thing about this shower caddy is that it's only $8.99!! You are going to love it.
2. BEST FEATURES
DORMIFY 7 POCKET SHOWER TOTE
This shower caddy is the best! You will love that it has an extra-long strap so you can carry it on your shoulder.
You'll probably be walking back and forth with a towel, your shower caddy, and a ton of other stuff, so having an extra hand will be a game-changer.
The pockets are super deep, so there is room for all of your products (even the tallest bottles)!
3. PRETTIEST DESIGN
PB TEEN RECYCLED OMBRE CLASSIC SHOWER CADDY
One of the many super pretty shower caddy designs on Pottery Barn Teen!! This shower caddy is a bit pricey, but if you want to impress on your way to the showers, it sure is pretty ;).
Pottery Barn always has some really nice dorm room options; just be ready for higher prices!
4. AMAZON'S CHOICE
5. LARGEST OPTION
PB TEEN RECYCLED OVER-THE-SHOULDER SHOWER CADDY
Okay, Pottery Barn is just too good with their dorm room stuff. This shower caddy is BIG, but if you have a ton of shower stuff & want to fit your towel too this would be a good option!
The marble pattern is so cute, but they also have other colors/patterns! The absolute best part about this shower caddy is that it has a shoulder strap to free up your hands!
Again, it is pricey but if you're looking to splurge, go for it!!
6. MOST UNIQUE DESIGN
7. TRENDIEST OPTION
PINK PORTABLE SHOWER CADDY
This is so cute!!! I saw the patch, and it totally reminded me of Stoney Clover Lane (which is so cute but $$$).
The main plastic pouch has holes at the bottom to drain, and there are two mesh pockets on the sides!
For being a very popular name brand, you will be surprised that this shower caddy is only $20!
8. SMART PHONE FRIENDLY
BED BATH & BEYOND MESH SHOWER TOTE
Okay, this one is super comparable to Amazon's chosen one I shared above, but it comes with a special pouch just for your phone!! Now your phone won't get water damaged, and you can listen to music while you shower!
I have dropped my phone in a dorm shower before, and let me tell you, I was so scared (thankfully, somehow, it survived).
9. EASIEST TO STORE / PACK
AMAZON POP-UP DORM SHOWER CADDY - FOLDS FLAT
I have never seen a shower caddy like this before today, and I actually think it's super cool! You will love this shower caddy because it's pretty tall and can hold all of your tall bottles.
The pop-up design means it can fold completely flat when you're storing it. This would be especially nice while packing for college when you need to take advantage of every last inch of space.
10. STURDIEST DESIGN
AMAZON MESH SHOWER CADDY - PORTABLE TOILETRY TOTE
This is another shower caddy that I was super surprised by, but the more I think about it, the more I come to realize this would've been perfect to have in the dorms!!
You will love this shower caddy because it's pretty large, has a completely mesh body, and zippered closure, so nothing will fall out!!
