It’s difficult to attribute a good night’s sleep to a single factor. Certainly, a supportive mattress helps. So does a fluffy pillow. Another important part of the equation — one that can sometimes be overlooked or bought in haste — is your sheets.
And it’s too bad that many of us can’t find a beautiful, durable, and appropriately-priced set of sheets, because they’re universally appealing. No one can say they don’t love settling in to a soft and cool bed at the end of a long day, or lazily stretching out on top of worn-in sheets on a weekend morning. It’s this highly sought-after feeling in a long uninspired and outdated industry that has prompted numerous direct-to-consumer bedding startups to crop up in the last four to five years.
The common thread of perfectly rumpled sheet imagery can make these online companies difficult to differentiate, but they do offer distinct value propositions that could make one a better choice over the other. Before you make a sheets upgrade, read up on what these bedding startups offer and what you should buy from each one.
Note: All prices are for Queen size offerings.
