So I had registered for them, but then my grandma went out and bought me cheap stuff at JC Penney. I washed them, and they’re pilled. I called the store and they said I can just bring them back for store credit. I’ll buy a dutch oven with that…
That being said, what are the best-ever sheets and towels you’ve had? We got some money at my shower, and want to buy some good, long-lasting ones! I want fluffy soft towels, and smooth sheets.

For towels, my favorites are actually the ones we got at Costco. They’re fluffy, great size, and just really nice. They feel so plush, like a really thick and soft cushy robe. I’m definitely going to stock up on them. You do have to wash them in hot water the first time to make sure the cotton fully expands. We haven’t had good luck with sheets, so keeping my eyes open for recs on this thread.

My favorite sheets are actually the cheap ones from target. Room essentials brand (like $35 for a queen set). I’ve had them for 5 years and they are still like new!! They are the softest, but I’ve washed them a ton, and they aren’t pilled or anything. I have to wash mine at least once a week due to allergies. We were going to register for fancier ones, but just registered for another set of these because I’ve had such good luck with them. haha!

- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
Here in Canada I swear by The Bay! Their sheets and towels have never steered me wrong. They only carry high quality stuff, and even their cheapest lines are amazing! I got my sheets and towels from them at my bridal shower….I forget the name of the exact line. The sheets are ivory white and 400 thread count. They are just as soft and white as the day we first started using them (and I have been married for a year next week…and my shower was two months before the wedding!). My towels are by Lacoste and blue, orange and green (so we can tell who’s towels are whos). I don’t do anything special when I wash them. I have been using them for the same amount of time as the sheets. I’d say they’ve only lost maybe 10% of their original fluffyness, but no pilling or wearing thin. They have also faded a TINY bit but still look bright and beautiful.
I grew up with sheets and towels from Sears. We lived in a very small town and ordered them from the catalogue. They were pretty good too, but stuff needed to be replaced every 3 or 4 years…which is still pretty good bang for your buck!

We got our sheets at Bed Bath and Beyond. They sell some nice ones there, but they are expensive. Our current favorite set are the Eucalyptus ones (not sure of the exact name) and they are amazing! We always use the 20% off coupon so that helps. For towels we do Ralph Lauren or Hotel Collection from Macy’s. RL are softer IMO but both are nice. We always get them when they are having a good sale.

In the past six months Darling Husband and I have spent HUNDREDS of dollars on sheets. We have a thick mattress that is meant to be used without a boxspring so it was a nightmare trying to find a set in which the flat sheet was long enough to tuck under when making.
Then came the problem of finding the right material.
I recently chucked a set after 1 week and FINALLY found a set.
It was at wal-Mart. I didn’t want sheets from Wal-Mart… I wnated to be all adulty and get a fancy pair from Linen Chest, but after trying and failing so many trimes we went ot Wal_mart. You can buy them separately so we have a queen fitted and a king flat sheet.

musket87 : Restoration Hardware–hands down! We’ve had them for about 6 years now and they still look brand-new even with washing them every week. Catch them on sale if you can.

Has anyone heard that you should NOT use dryer sheets on towels because they lose their fluffiness? Wondering if it’s true or not…

My fav sheets are Amazon Basics. Seriously. $20 for queen, $25 for king. Incredibly soft, wash well, and after a year, they still look new.

we have Brooklinen percale sheets and love them to bits–we bought a second pair of the same sheets (even though originally we had planned to get our second pair from Parachute to see if we noticed a difference) because we love them so much (and you know, laundry). We missed them while on honeymoon. (Well, that and our memory foam bed)

We use Macy’s hotel collection for both, 600 count sheets are nice without completely breaking the bank.

The Macy’s Hotel Collection are amazing – they sometimes go on sale on Black Friday. We’ve had good luck with the Walmart Hotel Collection too (no fading and no pilling after lots of washes, on our guest bed) and the Jennifer Lopez brand from Kohls (also purchased on sale on Black Friday).

RedHeadKel : I don’t use dryer sheets on the towels anymore and I find that they stay more absorbant for longer (particular kitchen towels, rags, etc).
