@cls9q:  I buy them at Target because I refuse to spend more than $50. But my favorite set of sheets I ever had (they were so smooth and soft) I got at Bed, Bath and Beyond. They were like 600 thread count sateen, omg, I haven’t had them for about 6 years and I still miss them. They lasted for about 3 years.

Thread count is meaningless when the thread is rough and of low quality. Don’t pay attention to it. I’ve found my best set of sheets at walmart. I don’t shop there any more for other reasons but those sheets look and feel great 6 years later! 

Like you I got the expensive ones at BBB once and the fitted sheet ripped after a couple years! fffffft, fool me once!

I get mine at costco – they have great quality sheets at excellent prices, and I especially love the flannel ones in wintertime.

Home goods! You can get some really great brands for much cheaper! I just got an awesome Ralph Lauren set for $40 (queen) that were originally about $80

@cls9q:  we actually get ours at SAMs club, it’s 650 thread count, uber soft, and they come with extra pillow cases and are deep pocketed so they don’t slip off the mattress! We pay around $65-70 for them

Generally speaking Bedding is an investment… in so much as it ain’t cheap… and “the good stuff” truly only gets better (softer) over time.

Mr TTR & I have bought our bedding over the years from a variety of Stores… The Bay – Home Outfitters – Bed Bath & Beyond (and ALWAYS on Sale… White Sales happen a couple of times a year)

My current fave sheets are a set of Gluckstein’s Home Classics 700 Thread Count 100% Pima Cotton Steen.  (NOTE – Brian G is a Canadian Interior Designer who has a HUGE US following as well).  I bought these sheets a few years back at 50% off, I think we spent aprox $ 100 for 4 pieces (Fitted – Flat – and 2 PCs) in an open stock arrangement.

My greatest criteria is that the sheet has a high thread count, is primarily cotton (or 100% cotton) and is a deep pocket sheet (cotton sheets in particular tend to shrink in hot water or a hot dryer) a sheet that has shrunk is difficult to put on a bed and pull over the mattress corners… so deep pockets help, even if you have a standard depth mattress)

As a general note, you will not want to skimp on your bedding… as realistically you do spend 1/3 of your life there… and they do take a beating.

Quality linens will last you a while if they are properly maintained, changed regularly, washed & dryed properly (read the laundry care instructions… and in particular do not wash them with anything else, especially NOT TOWELS… otherwise sheets will pill and become very scratchy & nasty).  Overall they should get more and more silky over time (think about how wonderful Hotel Sheets feel).  A good investment that should last you 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years.

Hope this helps,

I like the soft flannel/t-shirt sheets from target. We got our king sized one for like, 30 bucks. Came with fitted sheet, flat sheet & two pillowcases.

JCPenney, Kohl’s and Macys. I only buy 1000 thread count. Never had an issue with ripping or pilling and I’ve used the same sheets over 10 years. You can usually score 1000’s on Black Friday for about $50-$75.

Wow, BB&B sure has a lot available on-line, certainly more than I see here in Canada, in my nearest store !!

For starters, I don’t go below 300 for thread count… and the higher the number the better, but that also means you pay more too.

Not a fan of Wamsutta, just have had too many bad experiences.

Have had good results in the past with Laura Ashley, Nautica and Ralph Lauren.

Having looked over the website, I’d also be tempted to give Tommy Bahama or Kenneth Cole a try.

So this may seem strange, but I just got a new set of sheets for Christmas from WalMart and they are amazing! The brand is better homes and gardens (like the magazine). My mom got them on sale for $20 and they are seriously the best sheets I have ever owned. On a related note, I also got a memory foam mattress topper from there for $25 and my bed is a cloud! It makes getting up every morning so much harder.

I love our Wamsutta 400 thread count sheets from BBB. I am very picky about sheets on my skin and these ones are awesome. Also cheap!
