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. A Lightweight Microfiber Set: CGK Unlimited 6-Piece Hotel Luxury Bed Sheets
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.
According to a reviewer: "I normally sleep hot, these sheets keep me cool. I love it!"
2. The Best Cotton Sheets: Mayfair Linen 100% Egyptian Cotton Sheets
Woven from 10% 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.
According to a reviewer: "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our new sheets! 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."

Editor's note: I own these sheets and swear by them. They never wrinkle, are super lightweight, and while they don't breathe quite as well as 100% cotton sheets, you can't beat the price.

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.
According to a reviewer: "I have very dry, eczema prone skin. Just rubbing my feet across most sheets will scratch the skin on my heals. Not these sheets though. They are so soft and don't hurt or tear my skin. Yes I even use them in the summer. I also took them to the hospital with me when I had hip replacement and a 2 week stay in rehab afterwards. It really saved my skin and helped sooth the eczema."
