Sheets are so simple, yet so overwhelming: What is thread count? Which cooling sheets are best for hot sleepers? Is it a waste of money to splurge on pieces of fabric that never even leave the house, or is it actually totally worth it? We may not have all the answers, but we do have some recommendations. Rather than combing the internet for hours reading reviews, take it from us: These are the best sheets on the market.
Video of the Day
"They are so soft and inviting. My husband and I marvel all the time about how much we love them. I highly recommend them if you're ready to up your bed game." — Laurie Grossman, director of editorial operations
"These sheets are oh so soft but don't trap heat (a plus for someone who gets night sweats). I also love that they're made with 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton and that the brand itself is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. As for the hue, I went with 'clay.' It washes wonderfully and makes my bedroom feel extra warm and nap-ready." — Anna Gragert, senior lifestyle editor
"For real, the Threshold organic cotton sheets from Target — in white, of course — are my favorite. We bought them a while back, and they're still going strong. Super-dense cotton sheets can sometimes feel lugubrious and stiff to me — or, if they're the sateen kind, too slithery and slick. These are just right. They're soft, but they have a crispness that feels cool and fresh. They're not too thick or too thin. They're the Goldilocks of sheets, the linen Middle Path. Even my boyfriend likes them, and he's extra fancy." — Eve Epstein, senior vice president and general manager
"These are hands down the coziest sheets I've ever slept on. They're made with 95% cotton and 5% Himalayan cashmere — need I say more? — and are perfect for cozy winter nights." — Katie Maguire, senior commerce editor
"Because my husband and I have a very heavy, king-size mattress and a deep bed frame that almost completely envelops the mattress, changing our fitted sheet used to be a sweaty, two-person job. This two-piece fitted sheet has totally changed the game, though. After you put the whole sheet on the first time, you simply zip off the top part (the part you sleep on) to wash it and then zip it back onto the base, which stays on your mattress. The sheet also has extra-deep, stretchy pockets that can fit over even the thickest mattresses so you never have to worry about the base slipping off the corners. A+ functionality aside, the 400-thread-count sateen is also super soft and luxurious." — Gina Goff, director of audience development
"I was pretty skeptical about these sheets before I tried them. Are they really as cooling as the description and reviews claim? After trying them during the hottest temperatures of summer, I'm a complete believer. Not only are these sheets so soft to the touch but they really do feel significantly cool on my skin. Gone are the nights when I wake up covered in sweat. Even now, in the cooler temperatures of winter, they're somehow warm yet still cooling at the same time. For anyone who is constantly overheating during the night, I highly recommend these sheets." — Lacey Won, senior social media manager
"These sheets are a game-changer. My boyfriend would constantly break out in a sweat during the night. Once I heard about Casper's Hyperlite sheets, I knew we had to try them. Not only have they kept him from overheating at night but they're so soft and smooth that I love laying in bed more than ever before. Casper's Hyperlite sheets stay cozy and cool, even through the hottest summer months. I don't think we could ever go back to any other set!" — Jackie Ku, influencer marketing manager
"While I have a bunch of normal cotton sheet sets, I literally ONLY use my Parachute Brushed Cotton sheets (and I have two sets that I rotate to make sure they don't get too dingy). They are BEYOND soft, and I just love the natural look — they look worn in but without sharp wrinkles. So comfy, so cozy!" — Leonora Epstein, senior director of content
"These bamboo sheets are favorite things of both me and Oprah. They're the softest sheets ever in a silky-cozy way (not slippery). If you run hot, they keep you cool. The price tag is high, but it's backed up by a 100-night-sleep trial and a 10-year warranty, and they're guaranteed not to pill. If you want cool, soft, silky-feeling sheets made to last, these are for you." — Kendra Zager, manager of audience development
"The feel of these sheets is everything. I look forward to wrapping myself in the top sheet every night because it's just that comfortable and cool. I truly thought I hated top sheets before Ettitude entered my life. I also love the look of them. They just drape so beautifully over the bed. I have been using these for nearly three years and absolutely swear by them. Check out my full product review for all the details." — Erin Lassner, associate commerce editor
"I'm always skeptical about how different one set of sheets could be from the next, but the distinction in Authenticity50's Signature Sheets from any other set is night and day. These sheets are so cool and crisp, it makes it so hard to leave the bed. It feels so refreshing to sprawl out on top of them. Not only are they ultra comfy, but how amazing is it that these sheets are made 100% from start to finish in the USA? The production process alone supports over 500 American jobs!
The only issue with the sheets is that they can't stay in stock! Just the waiting list alone has reached over 2,000 people, and rightfully so! Once you try Authenticity50's products, there is no going back. I also love all their pillows and blankets. I've had guests stay over and immediately purchase Authenticity50's pillows after using them!" — Jackie Ku, influencer marketing manager
"There's nothing like a solid Amazon find, and this bamboo sheet set from Hotel Sheets Direct is certainly one of them. The buttery soft sheet set comes with a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases that have lasted me for years and only seem to be getting softer. Made from 100% viscose from bamboo, they're cool in the summer and warm during the colder months, making them perfect to use all year long.
I opted for the classic white colorway, but it also comes in over a dozen other hues — from cool gray to subtle pastel pink. And if you have a thick mattress, this set has deep pockets.
