*I was provided a complimentary product in exchange for sharing my thoughts with you. Regardless, my opinion is 100% my own.
If you've read this blog for any length of time, you'll probably know by now that I have traveled quite a bit. This has led to many nights spent in hotels, motels, and even friends houses. One of the things that I have learned on my travels is that I hate polyester, particularly polyester that is used in bedding. For me, there is nothing worse that crawling between the sheets and then laying there sweating all night.
Don't get me wrong, I've been drawn in by polyester before! The promise of "Wrinkle-Free" shirts and "No-Iron" pants was enticing, until I realized that it wasn't necessarily true and it would ratchet up my body heat to an unbearable level (think pit-stains that made me look like I'd just come from the gym). Since then, I've made it my mission to keep polyester out of my life.
This is actually easier said than done, because it's not always immediately apparent and it's present in far more fabrics than you might realize. My quest of the past few months has been to find a set of 100% cotton sheets that I would actually like on my bed. I started with my favorite local stores, searching high and low. I found lots of promises of "Wrinkle Free" sheets (who really cares if your sheets are wrinkly anyway?!), but very few sheets that were plain and simple cotton.
So, I turned my search to the internet. What I found was a bit overwhelming, to be honest. There was an over-abundance of solutions to my problems, so much so, that I quit looking. That is, until I found a set of 700 Thread Count Luxury Soft Cotton Silky Sateen King Sheet Set sheets for only $89.99. In the world of comfortable bedding, that is very reasonably priced for the quality!
These sheets made me want to climb in bed, pass out and then stay there for the next 10 hours. The fabric is nice and thick, with a nice smooth feel to the fabric. Lying my head down on a pillow encased in these made me fall in love with my pillow all over again. The sateen feel kept the fabric feeling cool, which is perfect for someone who needs it cool to sleep.
As for the fit of the sheets, I was pretty impressed. I have a pillow-top mattress, which can be difficult to find sheets for. They are usually just barely able to go over the corners, let alone last all night still being held securely. However, I was able to fit these over all four corners, without difficulty and in the morning, they were still as secure as when I first put them on.
We've been enjoying this set for almost a month now, and I haven't been disappointed once. Right now, you can find them on Amazon for just $89.99 + FREE shipping. They are available in 25 amazing colors. I think I'll need to add the Cool Aqua color to my collection next!
