My Personal Favorite Bedding
Hands down, my favorite sheets right now are from Boll & Branch. I received them for a sponsored post last year, and before I reviewed them, I wanted to thoroughly test them out before giving them the HOH Stamp Of Approval. But now, after all this time, I can say without a doubt that Boll & Branch sheets are exceptionally high-quality sheets, and yes, they are worth the extra money. Incredibly soft. No rips. No threads. No slipping off the mattress. No fading. Perfect if you are a hot sleeper. They have a nice cooling weave.

Best Sheets For Hot Sleepers
Last year I got a set of Brooklinen classic percale sheets. These cotton sheets have a 270 thread count, which doesn’t mean they aren’t high quality. Rather this means they have more of a lightweight feel that’s also breathable – making them the perfect sheets if you’re a hot sleeper. The look is crisp and tailored, so if you’re looking for that hotel bed look and feel, these are perfect. Mine have not ripped or faded, plus they have softened up with every wash over time. Oh, and no pilling either.

Best Fitted Sheet That Doesn’t Slip
I can’t say enough good things about these sheets from Target. While the price is right, there are two features I love most about this bedding. First, there is a top and bottom label — srsly, why don’t all fitted sheets come standard with a top and bottom tag? It’s genius, and the employee who suggested these simple tags deserves a raise. But what makes these sheets not slip is the extra elastic at the corners. The fitted sheet stays secure and fits a mattress up to 18″ with full perimeter elastic. Sheets with deep pockets that stay in place are my jam.

Best Environmentally-Friendly Sheets
These Welhome by Welspun 100% cotton percale sheets have the crisp hotel bed look and a low price point. The king-size four-piece set ($42) has deep pocket fitted sheets that fit a mattress up to 18′. The 300 thread count is breathable, similar to the Brooklinen sheets but without the price tag, and perfect if you are a hot sleeper. Besides being affordable, these sheets are OEKO-TEX Certified and Made In Green by OEKO-TEX, meaning they were made with a sustainable and environmentally friendly process. My only wish is that they were a smidge softer to the touch, but at this price point, they’re fantastic sheets. These sheets are also available on Amazon.

Best Wrinkle-Free Sheets
JCPenney tends to be one of those sleeper home brands (see what I did there). My brain immediately thinks of clothing. But JCP comes in clutch for wrinkle-free sheets. My favorite thing about this 600-thread count cotton sateen sheet set by Liz Clairborne is the subtle stripe design. Not only does it add a more tailored look to your bed, but the pattern also helps you immediately recognize the top and bottom of your fitted sheet. Keep in mind these are sateen sheets, so they have a silky smooth feel and lustrous sheen. If you want a matte look, go with the Welspun or Brooklinen percale sheets.

Best Linen Sheets
When it comes to linen sheets, I have an overall favorite, but beware, they are on the pricier side. The stonewashed linen sheets are supremely soft sheets woven in the oldest family-run linen mill in Portugal. Available in multiple colors, but I personally love the look of the Graphite Thin Stripe. The delicate lines give them that effortless, cool, french girl chic look. These linen sheets are breathable and moisture-wicking, perfect for anyone who is a hot sleeper or has night sweats. BTDubs, if you’re a menopausal woman, definitely look at a linen sheet set.

Importance of Reading the Laundry Instructions
Linen sheets are a bit fussy regarding care and washing instructions. More often than not, you’ll want to wash them on a gentle cycle with mild detergent. I also use wool dryer balls versus dryer sheets because fabric softeners weaken the fibers and coat the linen with a thin layer of wax, hindering its moisture-wicking ability. Also, stonewashed linen sheets are already at their maximum softness, so a fabric softener is unnecessary. Even though linen sheets are fussy, I love them because they look incredibly beautiful and last forever.
Best Flannel Sheets To Keep You Warm This Winter
Even though it’s 80º today, Chicago weather can turn instantly during the fall months, and that’s when I pull out the cozy bedding. The Ultrasoft Comfort Flannel sheets from LL Bean are the best sheets when it comes to comfy flannel. These sheets are super soft, and they don’t pill like other flannel bedding — they are also resistant to shrinking and fading. Although I’ve never used them during summer, I’ve been told these are perfect for year-round use. These sheets come in 8 colors and a couple of different patterns, but I’m partial to the ticking stripe found here.

Most Affordable Sheets on Amazon
With over 300,000 reviews, most being 5 stars, you can’t deny that Mellanni has something good going on. These soft polyester microfiber sheets are affordable, come in many colors, and keep moisture away, keeping you comfortable all night. They feature deep pockets and are fade, stain, shrink, and wrinkle resistant. Because these sheets have an 1800 thread count, they are incredibly soft and smooth. Kinda like the sheets at grandma’s house that have been washed a million times and feel oh so wonderful. However, if you’re looking for a crisp hotel bed look, these are not the sheets for you.

If you’re looking for more home decor on Amazon, oh have I got a treasure trove of posts for you!
Did you know that there is an Internet Famous page on Amazon dedicated to all the items that have gone viral?
Every year I share the Best Amazon Prime Day Deals, and even though they may no longer be on sale, they’re still favorites here at HOH.
Because who doesn’t love a good deal, here’s a round-up of affordable home decor favorites.
Best Luxury Sheets
Thanks to TikTok, I was recently introduced to Bedside Manor, a local Chicago shop, but they ship, so you don’t have to fly here to buy here. This decor shop carries bedding outside my price point, but if you want the best luxury sheets, this is where you want to go. With satellite shops in Lake Forest and Winnetka, you know this place is high-end, fancy frou-frou. It’s the premier source of luxury bedding. I’m eyeing the Fern Cuff Percale Bedding from Peacock Alley sheets. The pattern design has a fun traditional meets modern mix that is oh so my vibe.

Does High Thread Count Matter?
I’ve talked a lot about budget-friendly decor and where to find cheap curtains when decorating, but sometimes it’s worth investing money into your home goods. If you’re not sleeping on soft, comfortable sheets, it will impact your sleep quality. And as mentioned above, if you’re a hot sleeper or have night sweats, you want to keep your body at an optimal temperature. Waking up multiple times a night because you’re hot doesn’t need to happen. BTDubs, since I mentioned curtains, if you’re looking for affordable velvet curtains, check that post!
It should also be said that a higher thread count doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality. My favorite bedding listed first in this post is only a 240-thread count sheet set. Rather than looking at thread count, look at the material itself. Cotton and linen sheets will breathe, whereas polyester microfiber may not.
What Does OEKO-TEX Certified Mean?
If you want to shop responsibly and sustainably, look for bedding with an OEKO-TEX Certified label. These textiles have been tested against a list of 350 toxic chemicals, and the safety label is worldwide. Additionally, when a product is stamped Made In Green by OEKO-TEX, you know it has been tested against harmful substances and made in an environmentally friendly facility. When shopping for the bedding, knowing your body is not lying in toxic chemicals for hours on end should give you peace of mind.
