Bed Sheets: Amazon Prime Edition
August 30, 2016 9:32 AM   Subscribe

Looking for any good recommendations on Amazon Prime for bed sheets. I just spent my entire lunch break looking and I feel overwhelmed with fake reviews in a hugely oversaturated market.

Normally great at online shopping, but this is exhausting me! Too much research to do an an infinite amount of products.

Needs are pretty simple; I'm just looking for good high quality soft queen sized sheets. Willing to pay up into the $80 range for a set, but cheaper is of course better. Only item of note is that I sweat a lot, so if you have any special recommendations for that particular need, that'd be cool too.

Thanks everyone! I'm moving in a few days and want some new sheets for the new place and this is stressing me out.

The Sweethome is my usual resource for things like this.

When I moved cross-country last year and needed new sheets etc I checked the sweethome, but their recommendation was out of stock in white, so I bought these sheets from Target. I'm happy with them. $45 for a queen set.

I attempted to do this on Amazon and found it impossible to compare on there as well. I ended up going with Brooklinen and they are great. I also sweat a lot. $100/set.

Outside of Amazon and echoed by Sweethome, we bought LL Bean's percale cotton bedsheets and LOVE them. Easy to wash, great feel, and just the right amount of thin.

Me too.

Thirding LL Bean's percale cotton bedsheets. Also if you like flannel sheets, these ones from Amazon are the. best. The dreamiest, softest, velvety flannel coziness. (But I know flannel is not the beloved sheet of every person.)

I hate to be another non-Amazon answer, but I wanted to second the Target sheets quaking fajita linked. I'm really happy with them, especially for the price. The fitted sheet even has labels on the inside telling you which side is the long one.

Thanks everyone! At least it seems I wasn't wrong about Amazon being awful for sheets.

I may just have to take a ride out to Target or try and see if I can get up to the LL Bean Outlet and get some of their nice sheets on sale. (Yay living in Maine.)

I think I might put a set of those Brookelinens on my birthday list as well...

These might be a little out of your price range depending on the size of your bed, but I bought the Malouf Tencel Sheet Set from Amazon last year and love the sheets. Tencel is very smooth and cool.

I've also purchased multiple sets of the LL Bean sheets recommended on Sweethome and love them so much. Like, they are the best sheets I've ever slept on.

I have the Target sheets too and I love them.

Nthing the Target percale sheets. They are crisp and have a sturdy feel to them, yet are cool and smooth as well. I absolutely love them.

I only slept on them for one night (guest bed), but I loved the feel of these $23 Amazon sheets so much that I asked the host where to buy them. Was really surprised to see that they're made of microfiber, because the feeling is very cool and smooth.

To get back to Amazon, I just bought a set of these sheets and have been pretty satisfied. They're cotton, which seems hard to come by on Amazon. They're not super soft, but they're not harsh either. And they feel sturdy, but I can't tell you about their longevity because I haven't had them long enough.

We got them to replace a set of Target sheets that developed a hole after four years or so of regular use.

I got those Bean percale sheets too, having read about them here and then later on Sweethome. I'm lying on them now and they are indeed the best sheets ever.

To clarify: I got the sunwashed percale sheets. Those are the good ones. I do also have a regular Bean percale duvet cover and it's nice but not as nice as the sunwashed percale. Which autocorrect keeps changing to unwashed.

Fourthing or Fifthing LL Bean Sheets. I have a set of cotton percale ones that I love. They are soft and feel substantial and are well made.

Also found the Amazon sheet selection (and corresponding reviews) to be confusing and uninspiring. I went with the Wamsutta 100% cotton "cool touch" percale sheets from Bed Bath & Beyond, which I'm quite happy with. (I tried getting LL Bean but they were always sold out.)

Hi mayonnaises

I found a high quality bed sheet in Amazon under 29$. The bed sheet already got 5819 customer reviews.

I got the amazon basics brand of microfiber sheets and have been happy with it. They are only $20 for queen set. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q7OB4EE/ref=twister_B00U8QEXBS?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

Give them a try, they are cheap comfy and resist losing color.

I got some amazing linen sheets on Amazon, if you're into that kind of thing.

Sorry, linen will run you more than your budget. But they sleep cool, are super comfy, and so worth it.

Just wanted to update that I ended up getting the LL Bean Sunwashed Percale sheets that were recommended by a few people - and they have been great! Awesome call. Thanks everyone!
