People who own Tempur-Pedic mattresses are almost universally positive about their beds; however, there is one common complaint: the fitted sheet won't stay tucked. This is an especially rampant issue with pillow-top Tempur-Pedic mattresses because the memory foam is not stiff enough to keep a standard sheet snug around the corners. One solution to this predicament is to purchase bed linens that are specifically made for this type of mattress.
What Makes Tempur-Pedic Sheets Special?
According to Tempur-Pedic's website, their bed linens are "the perfect fit for your Tempur-Pedic mattress." Sheets specially made for Tempur-Pedic beds have some major design differences from typical bed sheets. The fitted sheet is made with an attached corner strap that helps hold the sheet on a flexible memory foam mattress. In addition, they have elastic all the way around the fitted sheet to help ensure a good fit.
Where Can I Find Tempur-Pedic Bed Sheets?
The best place to find sheets for your memory foam mattress is at the Tempur-Pedic online store. They offer several choices of luxury linen sheets, all designed to fit your mattress. The sheet sets are available from the online store in the following materials: Egyptian Cotton (420 thread count), Pima Cotton (310 thread count) and Combed Cotton (260 thread count). There are a variety of color choices, including Champagne, Gold, White and Twilight.
Brookstone also carries a variety of Tempur-Pedic products including sheet sets in the Pima Cotton material (310 thread count). They offer the luxury sheets sets in all standard sizes and feature an ultra-soft sateen weave in colors like Eggshell and Toast. Tempur-Pedic's wide variety of color choices and thread counts for extra-deep or Tempur-Pedic beds will give you plenty of options from which to choose.
How Much Do Tempur-Pedic Sheets Cost?
The price of Tempur-Pedic Sheets sets will vary according to material, supplier and sizing. Sheets purchased from Tempur-Pedic's online store, for example, range from $69.00 for a Combed Cotton Twin set to $329.00 for an Egyptian Cotton Split Cal King sheet set. (Note: Pillow and mattress protectors are also available.)
For an easy way to save, shop around online and check-in with both retailers (Tempur-Pedic and Brookstone) to see who's offering free shipping at the moment. Both Tempur-Pedic and Brookstone periodically ship for free on orders of $100 or more.
Other Considerations When Buying Tempur-Pedic Sheets
As with any bedding purchase, there are things to keep in mind when buying Tempur-Pedic sheets.
• Consider the fabric content of your new sheets. You may want a polyester and cotton blend if you're looking for wrinkle-free sheet sets. You'll also find sheets in flannel, cotton, and silk. Fabric content is usually a matter of personal preference.
• Check out the thread count before you buy a set of sheets online. Experts recommend that bed sheets have a thread count of at least 250 threads per square inch. The higher the thread count, the softer the sheets will be.
• Pay attention to the weave of the sheets. A sateen weave can give a very soft texture to sheets, but it can also result in lower durability. Percale sheets often last longer, though they may not be as soft as sateen.
• Match your new set of sheets to the rest of your bedding ensemble. You'll find Tempur-Pedic sheets in a variety of colors and sizes.
No matter which Tempur-Pedic bed sheets you buy, you'll sleep better knowing you won't have to entirely remake your bed the next morning. Although you may pay more for these sheets, the convenience and comfort make them worth the add expense.
