Let’s just start this out by stating the obvious: We all deserve good sheets. Sheets should be enjoyable, not just a necessity. You should be putting thought into what you’ll be sleeping under each night. Whether that’s percale or sateen, your sheets decision could affect how you sleep, which will affect the rest of the day. We’ve rounded up some of the highest-rated sheets that will keep you waking up on the right side of the bed each morning (or at least give you a head start).
Brushed Cotton Sheet Set
I was concerned that the Brushed Cotton sheets from Parachute would be too hot, but they are actually breathable and lightweight. Soft like a lived-in T-shirt, slipping into bed at the end of the day gives me the same feeling as taking off my work clothes and putting on my comfy pants. They come in four different neutral colors: White, Surplus, Ivory, and Gray, and you can even customize your set to come with our without a top sheet.
10Grove Percale Hudson Sheet Set
Prior to trying out 10Grove’s percale sheets, I was firmly in the sateen camp. With 10Grove, you can take the Blind Feel Test that will match you to your perfect type of sheet. Percale tends to get a little wrinkly but it helps temperature regulate. It’s also matte, as opposed to a bit shiny like sateen is. You can choose from four simple styles: The Madison, The Irving, The Mercer, and The Hudson.
Luxe Core Sheet Set
These are the first sheets I’ve ever truly cared about, and that’s coming from someone that requests a specific pillowcase when visiting her parents’ house. The Luxe Core Set is all you could need (a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases) and it comes in a multitude of colors. These sheets have a hotel-like softness that I only thought existed in, well, hotels.
Percale Sheet Set
If you’re looking for durable sheets that will wear into the perfect vintage T-shirt-like softness, look no further than these. I love Riley’s towels and the sheets are pretty fantastic, too. They’re crisp, cool, and comfortable and will get even softer as you wash them.
Solid Hemmed Sheet Set
The Signature Soft sheets from Boll & Branch are made from organic cotton and are soft to the touch, without even having to wash them. The hemmed edge gives it an upscale feel without feeling too finicky. These are simple, organic sheets that will make your sleep more comfortable every time you get in.
Casper Sleep Soft a Durable Supima Cotton Sheet Set
Obviously, Casper knows its way around a bed. These Supima cotton sheets are strong, meaning they won’t pill or thin even after you wash them a million-and-one times. They’re breathable and soft without feeling like you’ll tear them in the middle of the night if you tend to toss and turn in your sleep. They also come in pretty snazzy two-tone options.
Thread Spread True Luxury 100% Egyptian Cotton Bed Sheets
A 4-star rating on over 4,000 reviews is nothing to scoff at. The sateen weave of these 100% Long Staple Pure Egyptian Cotton sheets from Thread Spread (what a name!) are some of Amazon’s highest-rated and best-selling sheets.
Morrow Soft Goods Classic Sheet Set
I can’t get enough of these sheets. I was concerned that linen bedding would itch and scratch, but after washing just once, they broke in to be the softest set of sheets I’ve ever slept in. Morrow Goods bed sheets are breathable so they’ll keep you cool even if you run hot, and are extremely durable, so they only get better and better with more use. They come in chic color options like Terracotta, Fawn, and Bone, so your bed isn’t just the most comfortable it has ever been, but the most stylish, too.
Purple SoftStretch Sheets
Scouted Editor Jillian Lucas loved the original Purple sheets, but they recently got an upgrade. Not only do they come in a few more colors, but they are lighter, stretchier, more breathable, more moisture wicking, and more temperature regulating. Pretty much everything we loved about the original they made better.
