Best Sheets on Amazon 2018
Editor’s Choice – Peru Pima Percale Cotton Sheets
Best Extra-Deep Pockets – Southshore Fine Linen Sheet Set
Budget-Friendly – Mellanni Microfiber Sheet Set
Best Flannel/Winter Sheets – Pinzon Signature Cotton Flannel Sheet Set
Best Lightweight Sheets – Threadmill Home Linen Sheets
We chose Peru Pima percale sheets as our Editor’s Choice because of their hotel-quality construction, crisp finish, and long-lasting performance. It’s a great all-around bed sheet.
The deep pocket fits most mattresses, and the all-around elastic keeps the fitted sheet snugly in place for undisturbed sleep. This Pima cotton is hand-harvested and extra-long staple, so it weaves into soft, durable sheets that won’t pill and will become more comfortable with every washing. It resists tears, wrinkles, and fading. Pima cotton is comparable to Egyptian cotton, and these are the same sheets used in upscale Marriott, Hilton, and Westin hotels, among others.
We chose Southshore Fine Linens for our extra-deep pocket pick because the microfiber is heavy, soft, plush, and double brushed for comfort; plus at 21” they are deep enough for even the thickest mattress.
One of the best things about Southshore’s deep pocket sheets is that they come with double the pillowcases of other sets. The twin set comes with two (not one), and the larger sets come with four. The fitted sheet is fully-elasticized to stay tightly in place, and the microfiber is wrinkle and pill-resistant with easy care laundering. There is an impressive array of colors to complement every décor scheme. Plus, the flat sheets are longer than normal to encompass taller mattresses.
We chose Mellanni Microfiber sheets as our top budget-friendly pick because the price point is impressively affordable for such comfortable high-performance bed sheets.
At less than $25 for queen-size sheets, these sleep like ones that cost 3-4 times as much. They have a substantial feel in the very soft microfiber construction. The fitted sheet has elastic all-around, so they stay in place all night long. Buyers say these feel like expensive high-count luxury sheets. Plus, Mellanni stands behind their product and offers a lifetime 100% money back guarantee for any reason, no questions asked. Few bargain brands ensure product performance this way.
We chose Pinzon Signature as our pick for best flannel/winter sheets because they’re heavy, warm, soft, and well-made, perfect for chilly nights or those that prefer the year-round feel of flannel.
Pinzon’s sheets are double-napped on both sides meaning they are velvety soft to the touch wherever these high-quality cotton flannel sheets touch your body. They are made in an OEKO-TEX certified facility under the highest safety standards. The combing process used to make this flannel produces comfortable, durable sheets that get softer with every washing. They are wrinkle-resistant, low-static and also resist pilling – all common concerns with flannel sheets.
We chose Threadmill Home Linen cotton sheets as our pick for lightweight sheets because these are ultra-soft without being heavy, sleep cool, and have a gorgeous sheen.
Threadmill Home uses long staple cotton which means it stays soft, won’t pill, and doesn’t break down from repeated washings. It’s very durable but also lightweight for cool sleep that wicks moisture. The sateen weave means it has a subtle luster. The bedding factory is eco-friendly and powered solely by wind and solar energy, so you can feel good about buying these ethically-made bed sheets on Amazon. The single ply construction ensures durability and comfort.

The Amazon.com website has 33 (and climbing) categories of physical products. You can do a sitewide search or click the category drop down to narrow your search. Amazon sells bed sheets under the “Home & Kitchen” category, subcategory “Bedding” and further subcategory “Sheets & Pillowcases.” Under Bedding, you can click the appropriate subcategory icon.
Each Amazon bed sheets set sold on the site has a dedicated product page containing extensive information about the item in question. Here is the information you should see on each of the Amazon sheets product pages:
The brand and product’s full name – Check the brand name and specific sheet name as some sellers sell multiple items (i.e., cotton, bamboo, and flannel sheets).
The seller’s name – Click the seller’s name to see the array of products including all sheets they sell on Amazon.
Product photos – Amazon bed sheets usually have several photos to browse. Hover over the main image to zoom in and click options at the left to switch images.
Customer rating summary – This section tells you the average star rating and the number of reviews. Hover over the stars to see a breakdown of reviews by star rating.
Availability status – If you want the bed sheets delivered ASAP, look at items coded “In Stock.”
Shipping timetable – If the items are on Prime, you’ll have them within a couple of days, but buying from third-party sellers where Amazon doesn’t fulfill the order means a longer lead time.
Sizes – Choose size and color to see the price. Most sheets come in an array of sizes.
Product specifications – This bulleted list has important information on the sheets including the type of fabric, manufacturing details, weave, what’s in the set, laundering info, and other important details.
‘Frequently bought together’ – This section tells you what purchasers of those Amazon bed sheets also purchased in the same transaction.
Related products – These are similar items or accessories you might want to consider.
Special offers and promotions – Look here for coupons to clip digitally, promo codes, or to see if there’s a limited-time sale.
Brand copy and product description – This detailed information is from the seller or maker where they describe the product.
Warranty and support – You usually must click a link to open another page to view warranty and support information. Be sure to do this before purchasing, so you know what to expect.
Customer questions and answers – The customer Q&A section is informative. The seller or other Amazon customers may answer questions.
Customer reviews – The customer review section lets you sort or apply filters by certain keywords, or you can click to read reviews by star ranking.
Because there are so many products and options on Amazon.com, it can be confusing particularly when you want to compare similar products by different manufacturers. We’ve got some tips to help you quickly find what you want, understand the options, how to use reviews to inform your decision, plus info on shipping, warranties, and returns.
The same product often sells on Amazon from multiple sellers. For the best Amazon bed sheets transactions, be sure you’re buying from the manufacturer, not a third-party private seller. Many top-quality sheet makers sell to customers directly through Amazon.
You will usually get preferable warranty and return policies from the maker rather than a private seller. Some third-party private sellers don’t allow returns at all unless the item was damaged in shipping and may require you to pay to return the item plus a restocking fee.
Items that are from the maker but are fulfilled by Amazon are usually safe to buy. Just be aware that bed sheets purchased from the manufacturer’s website may have different sleep trial, return, and warranty policies than if you buy via Amazon.com.
Be sure to thoroughly review the return and warranty policies associated with the bed sheets. Most items on Amazon have a standard 30-day return policy. However, if the item is opened or used, the 30-day policy might not apply, and you could be stuck with the item.
You can find out more about the relevant warranty and return policies for the specific product and seller towards the bottom of the page in the product information section. Warranties apply only to manufacturer defects.
Because it’s a hassle to return an item to Amazon needlessly, be sure to verify that you selected the correct options before you click to purchase. Size is important. Not all Amazon bed sheets brands come in every size. Some only sell Queen and King. Some won’t sell Twin XL or California King. Double check you got the right size and color before you buy!
If you have questions, for instance, about bamboo sheets, Amazon Q&A may help. There are two types of answers you’ll see. Some are from the seller, and others are from Amazon shoppers. You can tell because below the answer, it reads “Seller” versus an Amazon customer name as the respondent.
Take these with a grain of salt. Sellers will often answer in a way that encourages you to buy. Other Amazon customers may answer with their own bias. Plus, anyone can answer a question, they don’t need to be a verified buyer, and sometimes competitors jump into the Q&A to make trouble.
Look through the product information section first and use the Q&A section for supplemental information. But accuracy is no guarantee there. If you have a question not already asked, you can post it and await an answer before you buy.
If you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, it’s something to consider. Some items ship free on Amazon without the membership, but if you shop there frequently, it’s a bargain. Memberships cost $119 annually, $59 for students, or $12.99 monthly.
With a Prime membership, you get free two-day (or faster) shipping on Amazon Prime items. In addition to shipping, the price includes free video and audio streaming, plus shipping advantages on Prime Pantry grocery and household marketplace and Whole Foods discounts.
