You just did it. Whether it's a Tuft & Needle, Saatva, Casper or Leesa Mattress. You saved thousands by buying a bed in a box rather than a tempurpedic or store brand.
We've done the same thing. Currently we're sleeping on a Tuft & Needle and wouldn't go back to the Serta coil mattress we had before.
You want sheets that will fit. The good news is that most any sheets will fit these new mattresses. The bad news is that not all sheets are created equal. Why spend money on a great mattress and then skimp on the sheets which are, after all, what your body is touching in bed.
What to look for:
- Thick elastic around the perimeter of the fitted sheet.
- Thread-count? An honest thread count in the 200-300 range is best. Interested why? Learn more here.
- Extra-Long Staple Cotton. Supima is the best. Did you know 90% of all Egyptian Cotton is fake? Supima is grown in California and verified. It's also about 3x the price of regular cotton.
- Enough depth. These new mattresses are usually around 10-12" deep. Make sure the sheets you're buying are deep enough. Authenticity 50 sheets will fit mattresses up to 16" deep.
- Percale or Sateen? Percale is the best weave for 90% of people. It sleeps cooler, lasts longer and is preferred by the finest hotels.
- Made in USA. Why sleep on imported sheets made in factories overseas with god knows what chemicals? Match your American-made mattress with American-made sheets. The quality will be higher and your sheets will last longer.
