STEP 1:

GET COMFY

The ultimate guide to choosing the perfect bedding, courtesy of Sunday Bedding.

Bamboo, cotton, linen

For those who sleep with pets or kids, linen is a fuss-free and durable material that holds up well to frequent washing. Linen sheets can last up to 10 years or more and get softer with each wash. They’re also great for allergy sufferers as they don’t trap dust as easily as other materials.

For people who sleep without air-conditioning, we highly recommend bamboo sheets as they are moisture-wicking and cool to the touch, making them ideal for our hot and humid climate.

If you’re less sensitive to heat, cotton is a highly versatile material and a perennial classic that’s also long-lasting and easy to maintain. After all, there’s a reason why hotels love cotton sheets!

Harmful chemicals

Harmful ingredients like formaldehyde and AZO dyes are commonly used in textile manufacturing. We highly recommend stepping away from those substances and opting for natural and organic materials when it comes to bedding. This is especially important for anyone with sensitive skin and allergies. When we sleep, our bodies heal, digest and repair cells, so it’s important to create a safe and natural environment to aid this process. Plus, when you choose natural and organic bedding you’re also making a better choice for the environment.

You can look out for particular labels when purchasing bedding, such as an OEKO-TEX certification, which ensures that no harmful substances were used during the production process, and the MADE IN GREEN label, which certifies that the product was made in socially responsible and sustainable conditions. Organic cotton is often labelled under the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), which certifies organic production.

Weave types

Instead of focusing on the thread count, consider other factors that determine the quality and durability of sheets, such as the material and weave. If you’re choosing between weave types, the most common ones are percale and sateen. While percale is durable and lightweight, it can feel a little rough and has a matte finish. Sateen, on the other hand, has a smoother and more luxurious feel.

It’s time to replace your mattress if...

You wake up with a runny nose or allergic reaction.

You consistently wake up exhausted or sore.
