*This GIVEAWAY is now Closed.*Raise your hand if you have purchased bed sheets before only to get them home, wash them , and after a few nights of sleeping on them, you were not that impressed?! When we first got married, we inherited our bed from a family member who bought a queen for her guest room, it hardly got used, and then she down-sized and had no need for the bed. Perfect timing for us, because we were just starting out, and I know you’ve heard this song and dance before, and “we ain’t got no money”. So we were thrilled we didn’t have to go out and buy a bed. Well fast forward 10 years later, and this bed is now 15 or so years old, neither of us were sleeping good, or through the night for that matter. After hearing so many commercials on how many hours are spent on your mattress, we were determined to remedy this sleepless night issue. When we got our brand new king bed, it came with a set of 1200 count Egyptian cotton sheets.
Of course all I can think of, was some tv show or movie, where they were raving about these sheets made from Egyptian cotton, so I got all excited. They were fine to start out with, honestly I didn’t really notice any difference from 500 thread count sheets I had in the past, but hey they were Egyptian Cotton, so that had to mean something right?! For us it meant that after the 3rd or so wash, they shrunk, and the fitted sheet would barely fit around all four corners of our mattress unless you were an olympic gymnast and could stretch magically to every corner and pull them down at the same time, YEAH not so much. Then about 1 month and 1/2 in I started noticing something scratching my legs every time I went to fall asleep. They pilled. And not just Oh an occasional one here or there. The entire sheet set pilled so bad you felt like you were sleeping on sand. If this is Egyptian cotton, I want nothing to do with it. Well maybe that was just our experience, but I’ve had bad luck with sheets in the past. Of course I hear my mothers words ringing in my head every time I look at a sheet set “You get what you pay for”, but when HomeGoods and Marshalls offer you great deals it’s hard to pass them up?! Can I get an AMEN!!! I’ve found out that over the years, it can become a bit of a guessing game. Some of the sheet sets sold there are wonderful, you never want to get of bed wonderful, and some not so much. I was tired of the guessing game, and so was my wallet. I often tell my clients not to buy something unless they are 100% sure of it, because why waste money on 10 maybes that were cheaper to start out, but in the long run it would have just been less expensive to buy the one thing you were really sure of.
So when Perfect Linens approached me with their convenient way to buy bed sheets, I figured well what do I have to loose. What I noticed right away was how easy they make it to pick out the sheets you like. They test all their sheets to the highest performance and only offer a small selection of the best quality, to take the guess work out of thread counts. Which was just what I needed. It was a breath of fresh air, after what we had just gone through with our previous sheet set. No more standing in the aisle, staring at sheets aimlessly wondering if I’m making the right choice.
We went with the Second Skin, and what I love is since they test them after multiple washes, I know I’m getting a soft sheet that will last instead of pilling after only a few washes. We’ve had ours now for about 2 months, and I am thrilled with how soft the are, and their durability. I’ve washed them a handful of times, and every time I put them back on our bed, there are no gymnastics required. They hold true to the size which is a true test of their quality.
