When bedtime calls, you’ll want to have the best sheets at the ready without breaking the bank. Sheets are one of those things you know you need but don’t necessarily want to spend a ton of money on. Luckily, the Good Housekeeping Institute‘s Textiles Lab has you covered — our pick for the best value sheet set is Mellanni’s microfiber sheets, which you can conveniently order directly on Amazon. At just under $35, they’re well worth the spend.
The set includes a flat sheet, a fitted sheet and two pillowcases that are hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites. On top of that, the set comes in 41 different color options so you can find a match for virtually any bedroom décor. Our Textiles pros tested the sheets and gave them a perfect score in mattress fit, meaning the set is generously sized and can fit taller mattresses. In a blind test comparing the softness of 20 different sheets, Mellanni sheets earned the highest softness scores, describing them as “smooth and luxurious” and “silky.”
The $35 price tag is definitely a major selling point, but if you need to know more before you buy, over 244,000 reviewers rated it five stars on Amazon. “These sheets are honestly worth the hype,” wrote one reviewer. “There’s no doubt I would buy these sheets over and over again. First, the ‘you get what you pay for’ line does not in any way apply to here. I can’t believe these are so cheap for such great quality.”
One GH staffer even bought a set of their own: “I’ve been using the sheets for about a month and find them comfortable, cozy and warm enough for the winter. The Mellanni Sheet Set is a great value pick when it comes to upgrading your bedding.”
