1 Measure your bed

You may be familiar with a double bed or queen bed or king bed. But did you know that there is no absolute standard size for the beds under these names?

Although the top metrics from manufacturer to manufacturer are fairly consistent, there are some differences. So before you go shopping, carefully measure your bed, paying attention to the thickness of the mattress from top to bottom, from side to side, and the mattress. Some are longer than others or longer. Make sure you know exactly what you need when shopping.

2 Know the number of threads in the sheets

On the front of the label, the manufacturer will tell you the number of treads on the paper. This refers to the number of threads per square inch in each direction in the fabric. The higher the thread count, the more luxurious the fabric feel. Regarding the silk sheets, We suggest you choose 25 Momme, because the sheets are the fabric we often lie on, and 25 Momme silk is more durable.

3 Choose cotton or blend, flannel, silk, or satin

For the sheets that go to bed every day, please be kind to yourself. Choose the best you can afford. After all, you would want to spend 8 hours a day lying on them! Cotton is the most popular bed sheet fabric, but some people prefer non-wrinkle cotton blends. For the cold winter, the flannel is very comfortable. For luxury goods, please choose satin, silk, or microfiber. You may buy a different style of the pillowcase. See which one you like best and how to wash them, then decide if you want a complete set.

4 How it looks

Good bedding, no matter whether the design is good or not, "workmanship" is the first requirement of bedding. Exquisiteness, smoothness, and no pinholes are also some of the guarantees of quality. When choosing to bed, you should also pay attention to the integrity and consistency of the pattern. If there are seams, you should pay attention to whether the small patterns on the left and right sides are symmetrical, whether the face and lining patterns are inverted, and the stripes and lattices should be aligned.
