You're going to spend about one-third of your life asleep — so why not do it while wrapped in the warmth and comfort of one of the best sheets on Amazon? Sheet sets are as different as shoe styles, but many of us treat them like they're one and the same. They're a necessity, and one that's often an afterthought, but scoring a set of sheets that suit your sleeping style and needs can make all the difference between a so-so night of rest and getting at least 8 hours of sleep per night.
If you're a naturally sweaty sleeper who can't make it through the night without wanting to tear off your sheets, there are amazing sheets that keep you cool and are lightweight and breathable. Of course, if the opposite scenario applies to you and you feel like you're sleeping in an igloo, an option like flannel sheets that trap heat inside are made with you in mind.
This list of 12 great bed sheets found on Amazon run the gamut from gorgeous silk sheets that are a total investment (but worth every penny, according to reviewers) to those that won't break the bank and eco-friendly options made from sustainable bamboo. Find a set that work for you and transform your bed into the comfy, cozy sleep chamber of your dreams.
1.The Best Cooling Sheets For Hot Sleepers
If you're the kind of sleeper who wakes up in the middle of the night kicking off the sheets because it's too darn hot (even in the winter), cooling sheets are the breathable solution you need in your life. This bedsheet set is made from light, brushed microfiber, which feels soft, cool, and silky. You'll get a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and four pillow cases, and can choose among 12 shades and four sizes: full, queen, king, and California king. These are the kind of sheets that never wrinkle and always feel airy, thin, and perfect for warm nights.
The cherry on top: for an affordable set of sheets, these hold up well, according to most reviews.
2. The Best Cotton Sheets
Woven from 100 percent Egyptian cotton, these pure 800 thread-count cotton sheets are both comfortable and long lasting. They come in 10 colors and are available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king sizes. The benefit of investing in Egyptian cotton sheets is that the longer threads and stronger fibers used to make these sheets mean they'll stand the test of time and are softer and shinier than most other cotton and microfiber sheets.
"LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our new sheets!" writes one reviewer. "The feel of the sheets on skin is as good as it gets with cotton linens. I can't recommend these sheets any more emphatically."
3. The Best Microfiber Sheets
Microfiber sheets are a dime a dozen these days, but that doesn't mean they're all the same. This microfiber sheet set is one of the most popular on Amazon with more than 29,000 mostly glowing reviews because it basically ticks off every box imaginable. It comes in 34 shades, fits every bed size from twin to split-king, fits mattresses up to 16-inches, and is durable, hypoallergenic, and resistant to dust mites. These sheets are neither too thin nor too thick, won't wrinkle after a wash, and are breathable and adjustable to various temperatures.
"These are thick sheets, they stay both cool and warm (I don't know how - it's like friggin' magic)," writes one reviewer. "The sheets wash and dry nicely and for the love of all things holy - they DO NOT PILL OR SNAG."
4. The Best Budget-Friendly Sheets
When you're on a serious budget, but still need a quality pair of sheets, it doesn't get much better (or more affordable) than this microfiber sheet set, which is available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, California, and California king sizes. These sheets come in 20 solid shades and prints like floral, paisley, and gingham.
With more than 10,000 mostly positive reviews, these sheets are doing something right — and, according to reviewers, the magic of them is that they're lightweight, soft, and shockingly high quality for their low price.
5. The Best Linen Sheets
Crafted from 100 percent natural organic linen, these fresh and lightweight linen sheets hold up in the hottest temperatures and always feel cool and dry on your skin. They're hypoallergenic and made in Belarus without chemicals, and if you're a linen fan, these sheets are a luxurious alternative to cotton and microfiber sheets that hit the mark.
"These are the best sheets I have ever had!" writes one reviewer. "Amazing weight and texture and they keep me from overheating when I sleep. The price is very reasonable for the quality and comfort."
6. The Best Wrinkle-Resistant Sheets
Because no one really wants to have to iron their sheets, these wrinkle-resistant sheets save you time and energy — and they always look fantastic on your bed. Made from brushed microfiber with a 15-inch pocketed fitted sheet, these are wrinkle, fade, and stain resistant, come in five neutral shades, and fit twin, full, queen, and king beds.
The benefits of owning these affordable sheets outweighs the fact that they'll never require an ironing board: "I took a chance on these inexpensive sheets and it was worth it," writes one reviewer. "The fitted sheet fit my bed perfectly over the topper and they don't create static like the cheap kind do."
7. The Funnest Sheets Ever
It's never not a good idea to take your love of adorable animals like gophers to the next level — and it honestly doesn't get more fun than this sheet set featuring fun-loving gophers letting you know they're "Lucky." You'll get a polyester microfiber fitted sheet, pillowcase, and duvet cover and it comes in twin, full, queen, and king mattress sizes. Sure, it's not the finest silk, but, again — going to sleep with a bunch of lucky gophers is pretty much the best bedding option in the world.
8. The Softest Sheets You'll Find
Imagine surrounding yourself, literally, with a cloud of plush material as you sleep. Well, you totally can with these super soft and warm microplush sheets, which fit twin, full, queen, king, and California king mattresses. These come in a variety of hues like aqua, camel, and orchid, the fitted sheet stretches up to 16 inches, and — though they may look like a mystery to care for — they can be thrown right into the washing machine and dryer.
These sheets are not for sweaty sweaters, warm climates, or summer sleeping — but they're an excellent set if you're looking to retain heat in bed.
9. The Most Eco-Friendly Sheets
Sheets made from bamboo are an eco-friendly choice, as well as one that provides a naturally soft, breathable, and moisture-wicking fabric that works in warm weather and for hot sleepers. These bamboo sheets made from viscose come in five shades, fit twin, full, queen, king, California king, and split-king mattresses, and are cooler and softer than cotton sheets. Since they save trees and are made from bamboo that regenerates without pesticides and chemicals, you can feel good about your purchase — and reviewers say they are comfortable, soft, and adjust to various temperatures.
"The sheets are expensive, but I am so so happy I purchased them," writes one reviewer. "They keep me so comfortable and cool, they are in a category all their own."
10. The Best Flannel Sheets
These 100 percent cotton flannel sheets fit queen, king, and California king mattresses, come in 11 shades and prints, and combine the soft warmth of velvet flannel with the breathability of cotton for a more comfortable sleep. Made in Portugal, this 190-gram flannel is incredible quality that keeps you warm, combed cotton makes them strong and durable, and the flat sheet and pillowcases are designed with an elegant 4-inch hem.
These sheets have more than 3,600 reviews and a nearly perfect rating. "These are my favorite winter sheets!" writes one reviewer. "They fit the mattress very well and are soft and warm with no pilling."
11. The Most Luxurious Sheets
Made from the highest grade mulberry silk, these luxurious bed sheets come in queen and king sizes, 14 sumptuous shades like dark thistle (shown here), burgundy, and metallic gold, and boast an embroidered top sheet that gives them an even more regal feel. They're made by a company called Taihu Snow Silk, which is considered one of the top 10 silk brands in China. And, if you can invest in these incredible sheets, reviewers say you won't regret it.
"Gorgeous, artisan quality, authentic China silk," writes one reviwer. "The silk is so soft, and plenty thick — but magically does not get hot (one of the amazing properties of silk)."
12. The Best Sheets For Cold Nights
If you're shivering under your sheets, something's not right. These cozy fleece microfleece sheets are the answer to your cold nights. Constructed from quality microfleece polyester material, this sheet set comes in seven soft shades, fits full, queen, king, and California king beds, and won't pill after several washing machine cycles.
One reviewer who lives in a cold climate swears by this set: "My husband and I love our micro fleece sheets!" she writes. "So warm and comforting during this cold winter."
