Editors’ Pick: Mellanni Bed Sheet Set - Queen

The Facts:

  • four-piece set
  • Brushed microfiber is soft and breathable
  • Fade-, stain-, shrink- and wrinkle-resistant

Here’s solid proof that you don’t have to pay a fortune for nice sheets. From impressed husbands to busy moms to college students, everyone is raving about this ultra-soft set—including one of PureWow’s own editors. She says, “They're made from a silky microfiber material and are by FAR the softest, most comfortable sheets I’ve ever owned.” Plus, the fact that she used to be a former Egyptian cotton snob speaks volumes about the quality of these.

Best Value: Sweet Home Collection Bed Sheet Set

The Facts:

  • Subtly embroidered pillowcases
  • Deep pockets fit mattresses up to 16” deep
  • Double-brushed microfiber for superior comfort

We love our memory foam mattress topper, but it makes finding sheets a bit tricky. This double-brushed microfiber (read: super soft) set is 16” deep, making it a perfect snug fit—even with that 6” topper. The subtle embroidered border on the pillowcases is an added bonus that makes them look just like the ones at a pricey hotel.

Splurge-worthy: Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Lyocell Sheet Set - Queen

The Facts:

  • 100 percent eucalyptus lyocell is a sustainable alternative to cotton
  • Softer and more breathable than cotton
  • Eco-friendly with nearly zero waste

Lie awake at night thinking about climate change? You'll adore these sheets woven from eucalyptus lyocell, an eco-friendly fiber made from sustainably grown trees. Not only is it softer, more breathable and better at temperature regulating than cotton, but it’s also hypoallergenic and static-resistant for the most comfortable night of sleep you could possibly think of. Plus, the sheets are self-cooling, so you get that cold-side-of-the-pillow feel, all the time.
