Sheet Indulgence: To Splurge or Not to Splurge?

The answer’s simple: splurge. You spend a third of your life in bed. So, when it comes to shopping for sheets, settle for nothing less than high-quality sets. Here’s why.

They’re long-lasting. You’ll spend more time in your sheets than your favorite pair of jeans. Choose a durable fabric, like 100% long-staple cotton, for sheets that will hold up for 5 to 8 years without fraying. (Just remember to dry them on a cool setting.)

They’ll help you wake up refreshed. There’s no such thing as “glistening” while you sleep. Opt for breathable linen, silk, or cotton over microfiber – a synthetic fabric that tends to lock in moisture.

They’re soft, always. Generic sheets are dyed after the yarns are woven, causing stiffness that needs a wash or two to release. The ultimate luxury? Sheets made from yarn-dyed fabrics.

They’ll stay in place. You’re free to toss and turn. Or even jump up and down. Quality sets have elastic around the entire length of the fitted sheet instead of just the corner, making bed-making a breeze.
