Mattress shopping has undergone a revolution over the past decade, with millions of Americans opting out of the mattress store experience and instead buying their mattress online from one of what seems like dozens of startups. There’s Purple, Tuft & Needle, Casper, Leesa, Zinus and tons of others.
You’ve done your research, read the reviews, and finally found a mattress that works for you. Now let’s finish the job and make sure you find the best sheets for your new mattress.
Match Your Investment
You’ve probably spent a good amount of money on your new mattress. It’s an investment! And using low quality sheets on your new mattress would be like renovating a room and then skimping on the paint.
The best sheets for your new Leesa or Purple are the ones that will last as long as your mattress — if not longer. They should be strong, flexible, and durable, so look for sheets made with pure pima cotton. We’ve made it easy for you with pima cotton sheets that are 100% proven pure and never mixed with inferior fibers.
Breathe In, Breathe Out
Most of these mattress-in-a-box companies sell foam mattresses, which offer a lot of advantages over traditional innerspring mattresses. However, they are also essentially giant sponges, which means they can suck up a lot of moisture. And the last thing you want is a moist mattress.
To help keep your mattress feeling fresh for years to come, make sure you pick sheets that are breathable. That helps any moisture that might get into your mattress escape. Sheets made from pure pima cotton are some of the most breathable around, and should help keep your new mattress from feeling swampy.
A Sheet for Any Mattress
The one downside of online mattress companies is that you usually can’t try out a mattress before you buy it. When it arrives, it might be too firm, too soft, or just not for you. Luckily, most of these companies have pretty generous return policies, so you can always try again.
That means you’ll need a set of sheets that’s flexible and strong enough to work with the mattress you buy today, and the hypothetical mattress you buy a month from now when you realize the first one wasn’t the right call. And if your sheets are barely deep enough for a Zinus 10” Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress, they aren’t going to fit on a Tuft & Needle Mint, which is a full 12 inches deep. Some of these mattresses are even 14.5 inches deep. So it’s important to buy sheets that are deep enough — and have a strong enough elastic in the fitted sheet — to handle any mattress.
Don’t Forget Your Head
Most of these mattress companies have matching pillows made of the same materials. And with matching pillows, you’ll need matching pillowcases. Make sure you get some that are just as strong and breathable as your sheets.
So no matter which mattress you choose, you can’t go wrong with pure pima cotton sheets, like our Wamsutta® 625-Thread Count PimaCott® Sheet Set. They’ll make sure you get the best possible night’s sleep with your newly upgraded mattress.
