From editor-tested bedding to the latest in sleep tech, we've got everything you could ever need for better sleep. Welcome to New Year, New Sleep.

Getting a good night's rest requires more than the perfect mattress — you also need the right sheet set to help you sleep comfortably through the night. The good news is you can get the job done by switching to sateen sets. Not only are they ideal for cool sleepers that loathe over-heating, but they're also made with a soft, breathable fabric that can elevate your sleep experience. "Sateen refers to a one-yarn-under, three-yarn-over cotton weave that leaves more thread surface exposed on the surface of the fabric and gives sateen its signature smooth feel and luminous sheen," explains Katie Elks, Director of Design and Product Development at Brooklinen.
