Parachute’s Memorial Day sale is back again, and you can get everything — and we do mean all of our most stood-behind staples — for 20 percent off through May 29. If you missed out on last year’s deal extravaganza (or the brand’s reliably good Black Friday event) and still need a home refresh, there’s no better time to score earth-toned linens, bathrobes that double as loungewear, moisture-wicking waffle towels, and more.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of our top bedroom and bathroom picks, many of which are Strategist-tested and -approved or come recommended by designers, chiropractors, and bedding experts. This is the brand’s only sale until we get closer to the holiday season, and the discounts are good while supplies last, so we suggest you start scrolling now. (If you want even more guidance, don’t forget to consult our Parachute brand guide.)
Pillows and Mattresses
When former Strategist senior editor Margaret Rhodes, who’s a stomach-to-side sleeper, tested this all-springs, zero-foam mattress, she noted its handsome tufted cover, soft but supportive feel, and non-heat-trapping coils. “It’s positioned as a luxury hotel-style mattress, and it really feels like one,” she says.
If your lumpy, drool-stained pillows need to be replaced, these dense yet airy down ones were named the best overall choice in our expert roundup. As Laura Bates, co-founder of Comfybeddy, puts it, “with 750 fill power, these pillows feel supportive but offer a generous amount of cradling for luxurious comfort.” Available in two sizes, they come in various densities — soft, medium, and firm — and have a smooth sateen-cotton exterior.
Our top-rated down pillow for side sleepers owes its plushness to its 750-fill-power European white down, which makes for a taller profile to reduce strain on your head and neck while you sleep. The 3.5-inch gusset helps it maintain its fuller, boxy shape to support your spine’s natural alignment.
Parachute makes our all-around favorite linen sheets, which several Strategist staffers favor for their breathable, soft-to-the-touch material and middle-of-the-road price. They’re a great option for those who tend to sweat while sleeping, says Sleep Sherpa founder Ben Trapskin, who notes that choosing a lighter color, such as white or bone, can help reflect more heat away from your body.
The brand’s duvet cover comes highly recommended by Havenly staff designer Madison Shoemaker, who says the breathable, 100 percent European flax softens with each wash. “It’s an easy-to-clean material that resists dog hair,” she says. It’s available in four colors.
For down devotees, this three-inch-thick mattress topper is our pick for the best plush option. “It gives you that traditional hotel-bed feel,” says Logan Foley, Sleep Foundation’s managing editor. Robert Pagano, co-founder of Sleepline, says the cloudlike layer fully envelops the sleeper.
To go with your new duvet cover, try this down comforter that Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens calls the best one she has ever owned. “Two years later, it’s as fluffy as when I first unfurled it,” she says. “And it truly works year-round, keeping me warm in the winter and perfectly comfortable in the warmer months.”
Bath and Robes
Backed by yoga instructors, entrepreneurs, and Strategist readers, this Turkish-cotton robe is “not the thickest robe I’ve ever tried, but it’s somehow the warmest,” says Heather Pearson, co-founder of vegan apparel company Dande and the Lion. With two large front pockets, a shawl collar, and an adjustable belt tie, it’s a classic style that’s available in five colors.
Pair the above robe with these spa-ready slippers that are comfortable enough to wear while doing chores around the house, says Strategist writer Ambar Pardilla. Their open-toe design means they can be worn year-round, she says, with socks in winter and as is in summer. As someone with wider feet, she notes that she can “actually slip these on without a problem.”
Fashion blogger Hailey Rizzo, a self-described “sucker for linen,” says she considers this Parachute robe a summertime essential, because it’s cool, comfortable, and not constricting. And the longer length is a plus, as it’s less likely to shift around compared to shorter cuts.
Another lightweight option is this robe that Josie Maran, founder and CEO of the eponymous cosmetics brand, says lives up to its “cloud” name, thanks to its soft and luxurious four-ply Turkish-cotton-gauze fabric. And because it comes in a range of stylish colors, Lale Arikoglu, Condé Nast Traveler’s articles director, says she doesn’t “feel particularly ashamed if I’m still wearing it at, say, 3 p.m. on a Tuesday.”
Both model Ashley Graham and home stager Meridith Baer say that these waffle-weave towels are quick-drying and very soft. “It’s been probably two years, and I haven’t needed to replace them,” Graham says. A smaller hand size, along with the brand’s full bath towels, is available in four shades — including white, gray, terra, and charcoal.
