Buy them on Amazon$27.71+ (regularly $37.99+) 

These highly rated sheets have almost 30,000 5-star Amazon reviews! 😱 Along with having the cooling feature that you’re looking for, they also claim to be wrinkle-free! Win, win! They are made of high-quality brushed microfiber that is made to be softer and lighter to the touch.

Love having white sheets? Keep them crisp and white with our tips on how to wash white sheets without bleach!

“We are very pleased with these sheets! They are lightweight and not hot at all (big factor and one microfiber sheets usually fail at). They come out of the dryer wrinkle-free and look so nice on the bed. They are made for a very deep mattress – I purchased this set to fit a hospital bed covered with a deep memory foam topper.

As far as durability we’ve been alternating between using these and a cotton set since October and these are his favorite and still look brand new. I recommend these without reservation…and it’s August in Florida so enough said!” – Leah

We all know that hotels have some of the most luxe beds that we’ve ever slumbered in so when we find a great set of sheets that comes straight from the source, we’re all over it. These sheets from Hotel Sheets Direct are 100% bamboo sheets and are exceptionally cooling.

As one reviewer said, you need at least 76 sets of these cooling bed sheets because they’re just that amazing!

“Buy these sheets. Matter of fact, I might even buy another set tonight because that’s how much I love these sheets – they’re like golden spun angel hair fibers straight from God himself.

Let me explain something to you about bamboo fabric…my wife LOVES bamboo, when we had our kids she got bamboo onesies and little blankies. As soon as I felt them I realized the hype. Bamboo feels like French fries taste right out of the fryer. Bamboo feels like rayon, jersey, microfiber, and silk had a child and it was perfect. Buy the sheets. Trust me.

Was I paid for this review? No! I’m a 30-year-old man, laying in my bed writing this from the everlasting comfort of these sheets – half the time I wonder where the hanging grapes are above my head as I lay in these sheets. When I wait to enter the gates of Heaven I’m bringing these sheets because I’ll need a backup if their sheets aren’t this boujie.” – Todd

Hip Tip: If these sheets don’t do it for you, here are some of our best sleeping tips that we learned during our month-long team sleep challenge.

3. Cuddledown 400 Thread Count Sateen Sheets

Speaking of hotel sheets, our very own Collin literally bought the sheets her hotel had because they were just that good. These sheets from Cuddledown are sateen, which is lightweight and breathable. Plus, it’s the closest thing you can get to satin without the expensive cost and fragile nature. It’s truly a win, win. You can also opt to buy the full sheet set to save a bit more (which is what Collin did), set includes 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, and 2 pillowcases.

“I took my sister to a spa in Arizona for a girl’s getaway trip in January and the place we stayed at had the most amazing cooling bed sheets ever!!! We were both so obsessed because they were so cozy and soft, and we literally felt like we were sleeping in a crisp, yet luxurious cloud.

We asked the hotel where we could buy them and the brand, then I immediately hopped online to grab some. The prices were actually pretty reasonable compared to what I thought they’d be and they’re so worth it!” – Collin

4. Parachute Home Percale Sheets

Want sheets that just get better and better over time? These sheets are rated as some of the best cooling bed sheets from Good Housekeeping, and although they’re on the pricier side, they’re something you’ll snuggle up with for years to come!

The percale fabric is pill-resistant, strong, and has very minimal shrink, making them some of the top performers for sheets overall! Just keep in mind that flat sheets are sold separately since most Parachute lovers opt to just use their lush duvets.

“I bought these as a splurge and I’m so glad I did! These sheets are warm but don’t make you feel hot or feel at all over-heated. They’re crisp and stay on my mattress better than any sheets I’ve ever had.

With other sheets, I usually always have to pull the corners down and my top sheet always comes untucked but that hasn’t happened once with these sheets! I definitely recommend these to anyone!” – Caroline  

Hip Tip: Want to grab these sheets on sale? Twice a year (around Memorial Day and Cyber Monday) Parachute will host big sales where you can score your new bedding at discount. We promise you won’t be disappointed, but even then, they still have a 60-day trial. 🤗

5. Casaluna 100% Linen Solid Sheets

Buy them at Target$139+ 

If you’re wanting something truly cooling, linen sheets are the way to go. Oftentimes, linen can be super expensive, especially when it comes to sheets! However, Target’s new line of Casaluna sheets provides 100% linen fabric at a much more affordable price so you can stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter!

While they’re still on the spendier side, they’re not even close to the cost you’ll find at other trendy retailers. They’re also offered in many different colors, so you can go for subtle or as rich as you want! Treat yo’ self! 

“These are honestly the best 100% linen sheets I’ve found and they’re about $100 cheaper than other brands I considered! Gorgeous, feel a bit rough, but soften perfectly after the first wash and tumble dry. The clay color with my olive color jersey quilt looks so rich! I think these sheets will be a year-round win in the D.C. area even in winter.” — Casey

    Thanks for this! I get so hot in the summer and it’s hard to sleep. I just didn’t know where to look to find cooling sheets.

    • Sara

      You’re so welcome, Eva!

  2. Mary

    I live in FL and it’s hot here year round. I would appreciate it if anyone that has any of these listed above could comment on how cooling AND soft they really are. I’m desperate to find that combination. I’ve spent so much money on sheets to find that it may be one OR the other but the combination has been hard to find. I am normally hot as is and living in FL is unbearable sometimes. Thank you in advance for your honest feedback.

    • Jess

      Hey Mary, I recently upgraded to a Purple Mattress and it is a much cooler sleep situation. Look up their videos on YouTube, the mattress is created differently and allows airflow. It doesn’t hold in the heat. That would be much more expensive than new sheets, but it is the most luxurious mattress I’ve ever slept on.

      • mary

        Thank you, Jess! I will check it out. Appreciate you taking the time to let me know. Have a great day! 🙂

    • CW

      Hi Mary
      I live in South FL so I know exactly what you are saying. We use Sheex. Look at Sheex .com. We originally bought them at Bed Bath and Beyond 15 years ago. They are pricey but cool and soft. We bought 2 sets and rotate them every week. Wash and dry on delicate, again we have had those 2 sets for 15 years and they show zero wear and tear and are cool and soft. I have fibromyalgia so comfort is a big thing for me. Hope this helps. See if Bed Bath and Beyond still has them and use a 20% coupon or when you visit the Sheex site they offer to email you a 10% off coupon. 🙂

      • Mary

        Thanks CW! I’m from Douth Florida as well. Cooper City to be exact. Will check out Sheex. My daughter has eczema and I’m hoping this helps her too.

      hi, we lived in AZ for years, and i did all the same money-wasting that you are talking about. i OBSESSIVELY researched sheets and bedding, and i cannot recommend highly enough — 100% bamboo sheets from Cariloha.
      i always describe them to people as, “it’s like the cold side of your pillow and a cloud had a baby.”
      yes, they are spendy, nearly $200, but they are a true luxury that is worth it to me. AND, they have a lifetime guarantee that the company cheerfully complied with when i had an issue once, no hassle at all, so you can buy them once, and have them forever.
      i HAVE also tried the exact same bamboo sheets that are listed in this post, and i did not think they are as soft as Cariloha, and i don’t know if their customer service could be as stellar.
      sorry to talk so long, but i truly felt like they were life-changing, as getting a better night’s sleep consistently WILL improve your life. i had put off the purchase of expensive sheets for a long time, and i sadly realized that buying 5 other kinds that the internet recommended that ended up being letdowns was not a better option.
      i think around some shopping holidays about twice a year, you can get 25% off on their website. watch for a sale if you need to. i know AZ doesn’t have the same humidity problem as FL, but they sell these all over the Caribbean where it is HUMID like FL, so i imagine the results would be similar.
      i wash on gentle with no fabric softener.
      good luck.

      • Taryn S.

        Totally agree with you on 100% bamboo! Southern Arizonan here too and I’ll never go back! The only thing people have to watch for is bamboo derivatives…those are synthetic (less than half natural fibers) and usually not cool AT ALL!

    • rebecca

      we lived in AZ for years, and i obsessively researched online, and tried multiple kinds that people liked. now we only use 100% bamboo sheets from Cariloha, and i cannot recommend them highly enough.
      i always describe these like if ‘the cold side of your pillow and a cloud had a baby.’
      AZ and FL humidity are so different, but this brand is sold all over the Caribbean, too, and that weather is similar to yours, so i hope you’d find your results the same.
      they are almost $200 per set for a queen, BUT they have a lifetime guarantee. one set i bought got a small snag in the sheet, and the company replaced the full set with no hassle. so you only have to invest once. it’s a bargain compared to buying multiple other kinds that are uncomfortable.
      honestly, i felt like they were life-changing, because getting a better night’s sleep consistently WILL improve your life. sorry if that seems dramatic.
      i wash on gentle, no fabric softener.
      i’ve also tried the bamboo ones listed in this post, from Amazon, and i didn’t find them as soft. Cariloha are the softest and smoothest i have tried anywhere.
      sorry to go on so long, but i truly love this one luxury item in my life. they have online sales about twice a year where they offer 25% off everything on their website. or you may have a store location in your area where you could go feel them. good luck.

      • Mary

        Thanks Rebecca! I will look into it.

  3. Katibell

    We love sheex

  4. avantika

    Thank you for posting the cooling sheets. I feel so hot in summer that I can sleep peacefully. Can anyone suggest cooling mattress and mattress pad as mine is just very hot. Time to replace it. Just thought to give a chance by adding cooling topper.

  5. Yvonne

    I love peach skin sheets. They feel great and stay very cool. They are also really reasonably priced especially since I have a CA king. They run a sheet of the month and you can get sheets as low as $65.00.
    I also love sheex. These are a much different feeling, but also stay very cool. A little more pricey, but worth it.

    • Sara

      Those sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing, Yvonne!

    • CW

      Yup we use Sheex too, feel the same way you do, have a waterbed and Sheex come in a CA King size and fit king size waterbeds.

  6. Josie

    The coolest sheets are 100% cotton percale with a LOW thread count. Sateen weaves and high thread counts only hold in the heat. I never go higher than 300 thread count – but the last ones I bought for a twin bed were 100% cotton percale with 200 thread count. SO cool and get softer with every wash. This aid with coolness is essential due to hot flashes combined with the oppressive heat and humidity of the Gulf Coast.

    • David

      I love percale sheets as well. They remind me of the sheets we had when I was growing up. So nice and crisp & cool. Would never go back to sateen.

    • Rose

      Is there a specific brand you recommend ?

      • Josie

        Hi, Rose – It’s hard to find percale these days. The most recent ones I bought (about 5 years ago) were at Target. Threshold brand. They were 300 thread count but were a brushed, “ultra-soft” finish — not my favorite finish but they have held up very well with no pilling. The 200 thread count ones were also from Target – Room Essentials, I think. Percale seems to last forever so my favorite ones are those I’ve had for many years…a couple with the extinct Cannon brand, older Wamsutta (new ones not so much). The best, softest, and coolest I ever had were from Walmart but they wore out years ago. I don’t know what quality is in the stores now. Just look for the percale label, thread count and 100% cotton.

        • Rose

          Thank you Josie!

      • Hipgrandma

        I believe Penney’s has percale sheets. I love their basic Home brand

  7. Rose

    Anyone has tips for a cooling blanket and/ or pillows?

  8. Kimberly Michelle

    I just bought Percale sheets from Quince and they’re absolutely wonderful!

  9. zuni

    Walmart has 100 % cotton sheets too. And they r pretty nice too. Much cheaper then these above

  10. obler

    Living the AZ, hottest summer ever recorded, life this summer. I purchased linen sheets from Target’s Threshold brand. They’re 55% linen and 45% cotton. I find them cooler than others. I’m interested in bamboo now. Thanks for all the great comments everyone.

  11. Harvest

    We found some Serta Cooling Sheets at Burlington for 19.99 a set for Queen size!! They are fantastic!! They fit deep mattresses and the pillowcases are a nice big size!

  12. Loretta

    I don’t know how they do it, but somehow my Sheex keep me cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold out. Love them, well made and sturdy too. Wash them over and over, nothing coming apart or thinning. 💘

  13. Jennifer Robertson-Hill

    Where did Collin get the comforter?

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hers is from Down to Basics, but forewarning – it’s a splurge purchase:

  14. Brenda

    Can you tell me what duvet and comforter Colin uses in her cuddle cloud video

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Brenda! They are from Down to Basics. You can find them over here.

  15. Kat

    Where did you get the down comforter when you advertised the sheets on fb? It is so fluffy. I love it.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks, Kat! They are not cheap. The brand is Down to Basics.
