If you’re looking to upgrade the quality of your sleep, start where the action happens: between the sheets. This weekend only you can get 25 percent off all sheet sets from BeddingStyle.com using code SHEET25. And along with a ton of other stuff many of these sets are already marked down, leading to a whole new bed for around 70 percent less.
You can spend way more on trendy brand names and fancy designs but the key to getting great bed sheets is to know what to look for in bed clothes. Here are a couple of tried-and-true tips to make sure you don’t get fooled.
DON’T BE FOOLED BY GAUDY NUMBERS. Many manufacturers boast high thread counts in an effort to sound more impressive — but then fill those square inches with cheap material. We recommend this 300-count Vera Wang Winter Blossom set (above, $139); despite the flowery name, they’re nothing but — check the subtle detail stitching.
COTTON IS KING. Sure, flannel is toastier and satin sounds sexier. But if you stick with long-staple cotton (fibers longer than 1 1/8 inches) you’ll get year-round comfort that’s durable, softer, and less likely to pill or wear threadbare. Try this Scroll Embroidery set from Aerin (above, from $180) that’s more stylish than it is pretty. And it’s already 40 percent off, so the additional 25 percent makes them a real bargain. $180) that’s more stylish than it is pretty.
