When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, picking the right set of sheets is crucial. While we can almost all agree that a high thread count in our price range is a must, one thing we often don’t take into account is how our bodies behave when we sleep.

How you sleep should be a factor when it comes to upgrading your bedding. Think about it, different fabrics are better for different types of sleepers. For example, hot sleepers can find themselves waking up in the morning, or in the middle of the night, sweating even if their rooms are at normal temperatures, and will need a more breathable fabric than people who run cold when they sleep.

So, to help make sure you get the right sheets for you, we picked the brain of Vicki Fulup, CCO of Brooklinen, to help us navigate the big, wide world of sheets. Hot and cold sleepers rejoice! The tips and picks ahead will surely help you on your way to the best sleep of your life.

If You Run Hot... These Are The Sheets For You
Fulup notes that if you run hot when you sleep “you’ll be better off with percale sheets. Percale weaves are perfect for those who enjoy a cooler, crisp feel. Our percale sheets are designed to be ultra-breathable, soft, and durable—even after washing them several times.”

If You Run Cold...
Fulup tells Domino, “if your body temperature runs cold, sateen sheets are your best bet. Sateen sheets have a tighter weave and a higher thread count so less air passes through while you sleep, keeping you warmer throughout the night. They are also silky smooth making them extra cozy for the cold winter months!”
