Hot Sleepers Read Before You Buy
Reviewed in the United States on September 17, 2018
I had read everywhere that for people who sweat in their sleep or are in general hot sleepers that percale sheets are the way to go. Then I read that 100% cotton percale sheets are the best percale sheets. That being said, I went out to Target and got 100% cotton percale sheets and was overjoyed. The sheets at Target cost me about $50 and I slept great, no sweat, no heat, nothing, just great sleep. So with that knowledge in hand I figured $50 Target sheets are great so $100 pima cotton sheets must be amazing. Wrong. I sweat more with these than I do with the Target sheets that cost me half as much. I will give these sheets credit for the fact that they do feel like higher quality material and they are crisp which is excellent but they don't breathe like my other percale sheets. The reason I gave 2 stars instead of 1 is for the obvious high quality material. But if you're buying these to be cooler at night save yourself the trouble and go to Target. Or you could buy bamboo sheets which I have also found to be highly breathable. Also, on my much cheaper Target sheets the elastic around the fitted sheet is much thicker and better. These sheets have a little tiny band of elastic that always comes untucked which is a nuisance.
So if you're buying these to stay cooler at night, go with a different percale sheet, these don't breathe like others.
