Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. Here, the best sheets on Amazon — we’ve talked to designers about their favorite bed sheets to fall asleep in before, too — according to the people (note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity).

Warmest heavyweight sheets

Pinzon 190 Gram Heavyweight Velvet Flannel Sheet Set

“I only sleep on flannel sheets, and L.L. Bean has always been my preferred brand, and the gold standard. However, after upgrading bed sizes, I was looking for a cheaper alternative. Amazon is always my one-stop shop, and I thus thought to give their Pinzon flannel sheets a try — with the expectation of their quality more matching Target than L.L. Bean. Wrong. They are wonderful. Thick, soft, and so far no pilling. These are some seriously luxurious flannel sheets for the price. Anyone looking for quality flannel sheets, I highly recommend trying these — half the price of L.L. Bean–brand flannels, and made in Portugal (the home of fine flannel). I only wish Amazon offered these in patterns — plaid preferably. The solids are fine, but boring.”

Great Bay Home Super Soft Extra Plush Polar Fleece Sheet Set

“Caution … only buy these sheets if you have a super loud alarm clock and strong work ethic. These sheets are so glorious, I contemplate whether it’s worth getting out of bed every single morning. So far, I’ve overcome the temptation of staying snuggled in these sheets all day … but winter is coming. Great quality, lovely bright color, deep fitted sheet. If my willpower stays strong and I continue to be employed, I’ll be buying several more sets!”

Best plaid flannel sheets

Pinzon 160 Gram Plaid Velvet Flannel Sheet Set

“I would give these sheets six stars if I could. I can’t believe I have been missing out on the wonders of flannel sheets all these years. The sheets are warm, so warm that I took one of my blankets off the bed. I keep my house cold in the winter (60 degrees), and it is an old house with leaky walls, so my bedroom is even colder. I look forward each night to crawling inside my bed, that is how warm and comfortable these sheets are. I’ve washed them half a dozen times now, and they are standing up great. They fit well on a standard size queen bed. The biggest problem I have with them is that come spring, I am not looking forward to going back to cotton sheets.”

Stone & Beam Rustic Buffalo Check Soft and Breathable Flannel Yarn-Dyed Sheet Set

“Oh how I love my cool weather bed with these sheets! honestly can’t wait to crawl into bed at night. The plaid design that I purchased makes the bed so cozy and inviting. Love, love, love these sheets! Worth every single penny! Beautifully made … No piling … Wash up perfectly … Fit bed perfectly. And you even get the sheets inside this fabulous bag that I use for all sorts of purposes! Best purchase I have ever made from Amazon (and I buy a lot). You will not regret buying these sheets. I just received my second set because I don’t want to go to bed without my Stone & Beam sheets.”

Best striped flannel sheets

Pinzon 160 Gram Pinstripe Flannel Sheet Set

“My teen received a set of these sheet in plaid for graduation to take to college, and he likes them so much that we ordered a second set in the navy stripe. We couldn’t be more pleased. We specifically wanted 100% cotton flannel and these fit the bill. Excellent overall quality. These sheets are thick and these really are the softest flannel around.”

Best wrinkle-resistant sheets

HC Collection Bed Sheet & Pillowcase Set

“For many years, my adult son has insisted that nothing compares to 100 percent cotton sheets with the highest possible thread count. King sheets of that caliber can cost over $1,000. After reading the reviews for these sheets, I took the gamble and purchased them for my son’s visit. He claims they are the softest and most comfortable sheets he’s ever experienced … with the added benefit that they launder very well, and come out of the dryer with minimal wrinkles. If you place them on the bed while still warm from the dryer, it looks as though the sheets have been ironed. I have since purchased three additional sets of these sheets in different colors for my other bedrooms: white, sage, brown, and gray. The hues are exactly as depicted, and have not faded after several months of use. I will continue to purchase these sheets, exclusively. The price is incredibly economical given the quality and afforded comfort.”

Danjor Linens 6-Piece Hotel Luxury Soft 1800 Series Premium Bed Sheets Set

“Wrinkle-resistant? More like wrinkle-proof. I got tired of wrinkled sheets in my vacation rental property, so I figured I’d try a set of these. They cost 1/3 of what I paid for the ‘high quality’ sheets I bought that wrinkle like hell. The first time I pulled them out of the dryer and put them on the bed, I was completely stunned. You would have thought I had ironed them they were so smooth and crisp looking. As for the actual feel of them, they are ridiculously soft and have a luxurious hotel feel to them. I like them so much, I bought two more sets.”

Softest sheets

Mellanni Bed Sheet Set

“These sheets are seriously the best sheets I have owned or lain in. I have stayed at multiple top-of-the-line hotels and none have come close to these. I live in Texas, and they do not get hot, but still keep me warm. It’s honestly what I would imagine lying on a cloud would feel like. I haven’t looked into what material they are made of, but I would not be shocked if “heaven dust” or “angel hair” was in the description. I’m tempted to just order them in every color, because the white is almost stain-resistant and barely wrinkles. I seriously have recommended them to so many people that people have asked me if I sell bedding. I could go on and on. Bottom line, if you’re on the fence, just buy them — you will regret nothing.”

Best bamboo sheets

Cariloha Classic Bamboo Sheets 4-Piece Bed Sheet Set

“The sheets are amazing! To me they feel like being wrapped up in your favorite T-shirt. They are way softer than even very expensive cotton sheets I have had in the past. They have that soft smoothness of silk without the slippery feeling, and are definitely way more durable. I will definitely only be buying bamboo sheets from here on out. An added benefit is bamboo is such a quickly renewable natural resources, so we are even helping the environment while living in luxury.”

Zen Bamboo 1800 Series Luxury Bed Sheets

“I tend to be a sheet snob and notice things that others might not about their sheets. Well, I believed the great reviews on this item and I’m glad I did! These sheets are fantastic! I love crawling into them at night. We like to wash sheets weekly, but that doesn’t always happen and these sheets don’t stretch and become wrinkly over time. The eighth night sleeping in these sheets is just as great as the first night! When it’s cold and you slide into bed and the sheets are cold … well, I think it’s just painful! These sheets are never painfully cold.”

Best linen sheets

Len Linum Linen Sheet Set

“First off, linen sheets aren’t for everyone. The sheets had a nice heft to them, which pleased me because I’d prefer these to last me until I die, however morbid that sounds, so I’d prefer them not to be too thin. As expected, the sheets were quite stiff and scratchy right out of the box, but anyone who knows a thing about linen knows that it only gets softer the more you wash it. Finally, after the fourth wash, it was time to put these babies on the bed. If you’re thinking of trying linen sheets, there is no need to go all out and purchase a $900 set. These sheets are well-made, good quality, and are perfectly snug and cozy while offering all the benefits of linen (extremely long lifespan, perfect for cool and hot sleepers, unsurpassed moisture-wicking quality, etc.) at a great price.”

Simple&Opulence 100% Linen Embroidery Solid Color Sheet Set

“They’re great! The sheets are really nice quality, with strong elastic around all the corners that make it a breeze to get on the bed. I’ve never had linen sheets before and was surprised how rough they were at first, but I’ve washed them a few times now since buying them and they’re softening right up. They’re very breathable, very comfortable. I’d buy them again in a minute and the price was great. Very reasonable for a good quality set of all-linen sheets.”

Coolest sheets

Oasis Fine Linens Island Bamboo Collection

“Oh my goodness! I wanted bamboo because of the sustainability of this crop over cotton. I didn’t expect to receive the BEST SHEETS I’ve ever slept in! I’ve always liked 100 percent cotton sheets for breathability and softness, as they get washed more and more. These Bamboo sheets are so silky that I feel like royalty in them. I have only washed them twice — I washed on warm and dried with wool dryer balls — and have not noticed any pilling or wear so far. They are just as silky as when I first opened them. They are definitely more cool-feeling to sleep in, but we both like that sensation.”

Peach Skin Sheets Original Moisture Wicking Soft Sheet Set

“My husband and I have spent hundreds of dollars trying to find the perfect set of sheets — and we finally have! My husband is a hot sleeper and I tend to be on the chilly side. My husband has had many nights waking up sweaty on wet sheets, ruining his sleep. We have had these sheets for about a week now and I can honestly say it’s been the best sleep we’ve both had in a long, long time. When I get into bed it feels so cozy and soft. My husband says he’s been able to sleep through the night without breaking a sweat! I would recommend these sheets and have already told so many people about how wonderful they are!”

Best microfiber sheets

Cosy House 1500 Series Bed Sheet, Set of 4

“I just experienced my first night with my new sheets and had to race to the computer in my pajamas to write a review immediately. OMG, these sheets are MAGICAL. I have never slept like that before. I have never been that comfortable before. Just, WOW. I have had the worst luck with sheets. I think I’ve bought at least 50 sets in the last 20 years, and haven’t liked any of them. I’ve tried different materials, different thread counts. But these …these are the Holy Grail of sheets. As soon as I slid into the covers, I let out an audible, “OMG.” At first, I was afraid to move, in case what I was experiencing wasn’t real, and moving would somehow wake me up from my awesome fantasy of happy comfort. Once I started stretching out and really letting myself get a good feel, I was dying of happy. I feel like I ripped this company off. There is no way I really only paid 35 bucks for sheets this nice, right? Is it a glitch on Amazon? Did they accidentally send me super-special $200 sheets, instead of the cheap ones I ordered?”

Nestl Bedding 4-Piece Sheet Set

“I ordered these on a whim because I wanted nice-looking sheets that would be cooler, but still soft. I was so impressed with these! They’re incredibly soft right out of the package, and they really are pretty wrinkle-resistant. Even after sleeping in them they stayed pretty crisp. The pillow cases are very soft and comfy to sleep on. I like that these sheets are lightweight; they’re perfect for summer time! I may order more sets in other colors to replace some sheets I have now! These are amazing! They’re also great for allergies. I have had breathing problems with other sheets, and have had no problems with these.”

Best organic cotton sheets

Magnolia Organics Dream Collection Sheet Set

“I’ve purchased four sets over a period of two years. The feel of these sheets is divine … satiny. They feel luxurious and high-end. The colors are deep and saturated. They wash well. I can’t think of any downsides, and the price for organic is excellent. I’d give them six stars if I could.”

Whisper Organics 100% Organic Cotton Sheet Set

“I’m super picky with sheets. They have to be a natural fabric, not synthetic. They can’t be scratchy or too thick. They have to be breathable so we can sleep comfortably through the phases of warm and cool all night (part of living in Hawaii). And they have to be dreamy so I wake up feeling luxurious and refreshed. These sheets meet all my criteria of perfection. They feel very similar to linen but they are softer and lighter weight. So far I’ve had them for 6 months of constant use and weekly washing, and they haven’t pilled or ripped even with 2 small dogs who burrow and shift around all night. I have used bleach with no problem, and I regularly machine dry. Highly recommended.”

Best Egyptian cotton sheets

Thread Spread True Luxury 1000-Thread-Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Bed Sheets

“These are amazing sheets. Very heavy, true to color and fit. They come with a 5 year warranty, as well.

I’ve bought Egyptian cotton sheets before. They feel stiff at first. If you google the care of 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, you’ll see that there is a certain way to wash them the first time (1/2 detergent, no fabric softener, no dryer sheet), and that they soften incredibly with time. My other pairs of Egyptian cotton sheets felt amazing after about 10 washes, and feel heavenly after about 40 or so.

Its difficult to say how much any Egyptian cotton sheets will soften, however these are nice and heavy, and color rich…and give all the promise of softening just like my other ones did.”

Mayfair Linen 100% Egyptian Cotton Sheets

“These sheets live up to the product description and then some. The colors are more vibrant than shown and the deep pockets truly fit the 15” corners on my queen mattress with room to add a mattress topper and still fit! They washed and dried on low beautifully. They were wrinkled out of the dryer, but I was able to hand smooth them as I folded. If you need perfectly crisp linens you will want to plan on ironing them, as they are 100% Egyptian cotton! They are very soft and comfortable to sleep on! LOVE THEM! Will certainly be ordering more!”

Best Pima cotton sheets

Perú Pima - 415 Thread Count Sheet Set

“I was so happy with my first gorgeous set of Perú Pima sheets that I promptly ordered a second set. They are the most comfortable sheets that I have ever owned. The workmanship, and the quality of the cotton, is top notch. The sheets have small, even stitching. No hanging threads or other manufacturing defects. No fraying or pilling. My sets are a beautiful bright white. These have been washed many times since I received them last April. They are still soft and comfortable. I don’t see that they have worn at all. Also, in all this time, no pilling. This is good-quality cotton.”

Isabella Cromwell 500 Thread Count Cotton Sheets Set

“I have been searching for Pima cotton sheets for months but have not found any I liked so I turned to Amazon. These are truly beautiful and wash up nicely. What I like most is that the fitted sheet fits nicely on my bed and does not pull up at the ends. The sheets are a little heavier than my other Pima cotton sheets but will be perfect for cooler months! I will be buying another set in the fall! I highly recommend these sheets and the price was budget friendly!”

Best 1,000-thread-count sheets

Royal’s Solid Ivory 1000 Thread Count Sheet Set

“Finally, after hundreds and hundreds of dollars spent on sheets that don’t even come close to heavy, crisp sheets from years ago, these sheets surpassed my expectations in every way. A deep and generous bottom sheet that easily envelopes my deep mattress with two latex toppers. No more stretching overpriced, poorly constructed sheets to the top corners of the mattress. If you like heavyweight, crisp sheets that wash and dry beautifully like you had at grandmother’s house, you can’t go wrong here!”

Best aloe-treated sheets

Sleep Restoration Luxury Bed Sheets With All-Natural Pure Aloe Vera Treatment

“I get very little sleep with two babies that don’t sleep through the night so when I saw these Sleep Restoration sheets, I said ‘Sign me up!’ Morning after: these sheets are amazing. It’s either the sheets or the fact my babies only woke up once last night instead of three-plus times but I had the most restful sleep. They are so comfortable. My favorite sheets to date!”

Best jersey sheets

AmazonBasics Heather Jersey Sheet Set

“They are the perfect T-shirt sheet! Everything you love about an old T-shirt, minus holes, and body odor, is here in these sheets. The colors are soft, too. So far they launder well, no pilling, and the colors seem to stay true. I have shopped all over looking for something comfortable, affordable, and with neutral colors or no hash dyes. This is perfect. They fit well, and stretch enough to fit securely with little risk of coming off.”

Brielle Cotton Jersey Knit Sheet Set

“Fabulous snugly sheets! I was a bit skeptical at first with such a great price, but I have been super impressed with with the durable quality of the fabric and the generous size. The sheets cover my plush 15” mattress easily yet snugly. Because the sheets are so stretchy, I imagine they would easily fit thinner mattresses well, too. I have washed them several times already and they’ve held up great. Cotton jersey is my all-time favorite fabric for sheets. They are the coziest!”

Best sheets under $20

Utopia Bedding Soft Brushed Microfiber Sheet Set

“I was kind of a sheet snob. High thread count, Egyptian cotton, etc. But I had to buy some new sheets because Doggo goes ballistic at times and those paw-nails do a number on the sheets. So gone are the days of $200 sheets. I had microfiber sheets about ten years ago and hated them. They made me sweaty, they got static cling, they got pilled and rough. ‘Never Again!!’ I swore. Then I couldn’t really find anything else in a reasonable price range because it looks like I’ll need a few sets a year until hip dysplasia or something sets in. So I tried these. I must say I am totally impressed. The elastic is tight enough to stay put when 80 pounds of flying fingernails decides to pounce, dance, jump, and run. They fit and stay on our 18-inch mattress without coming up at the corners. They do not make me hot at night. They have not pilled or gotten rough after several washings. Actually they have gotten softer. And the color has not faded one bit. I’m sold. And also a little embarrassed at my own snobbery.”

Best cotton sheets under $40

California Design Den 400-Thread-Count 100 Percent Cotton Bed Sheet Set

“For my sleep, these are the best sheets ever, and I’m going to buy more. I have spent big bucks deluxe in search of the holy grail of perfect cotton sheets, and have been super disappointed. I even did the $400-plus set at one point believing that’s what one had to spend. Not so. If you invest in a good mattress and a great mattress pad, these sheets will cap off the trilogy for comfy, comfy, comfy.”

Crispest sheets

Pinzon 300-Thread-Count Percale Sheet Set

“I recently stayed at a hotel in Paris that had the most comfortable bedding I had ever experienced in my life. I read the tags on them, which said they were 300-thread-count, percale sheets. Ever since then I’ve been looking for a set for myself, and I finally found them through Amazon!!!! In the past I just bought whatever sheet set was the cheapest I could find; I had no idea what I was missing out on!!! These sheets are CRISP! Thick, stiff, and cool … Just like they use in a five-star hotel!!!”

Best floral sheets

FADFAY Floral Bed Sheet Set

“These sets are worth every penny. The detail is exquisite: i.e., the bow ties as the pillow-case closures, the extra touch of sparkly lace to trim the dust ruffle, everything literally looks hand-sewn with care. The construction is brilliant. The comfort is even more — in Ohio, we go from 30 degree nights to 60 degree nights (sometimes in the course of a week) and these sheets have stayed the same comfortable temperature in both scenarios — never had sheets this comfortable before.”

Best striped sheets

Sweet Home Collection 6-Piece Fine Brushed Microfiber Deep Pocket Sheet Set

“What a great sheet set. I was a little nervous at the depth it would cover since I have a queen mattress with a fairly thick pillow top but I covered the whole mattress down to the bottom with no issues. The design is simple yet nice and the sheets are very soft. I used to work at Bed Bath & Beyond and I would rank these up there with some of the best Egyptian cotton and sateen sheets.”
