I'm curious - is there a reason the triangle/wrapping around the head and fastening at the front are beneficial? Does it have something to do with where the pressure is placed?

(I've got, as RCC put it, a melon head, so finding a towel big enough for this might be a challenge and I'm wondering what makes the difference and if I can get what I have to do the same basic thing...)
