Hotel Comfort Bamboo Sheets Review – Is Bamboo the Material for You?

Sarah: Hey guys, it’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today I’ll be reviewing the Luxury Bamboo Sheet set from Hotel Comfort. I’m going to tell you a little bit about what I like, what I don’t like, and for whom these will be especially beneficial. Let’s get started. Sarah: Now that we got the sheets on the bed, let’s talk about what they’re made of. These sheets are made from 100 percent natural bamboo fibers, which have a reputation of making very, very soft material. There are several types of bamboo.

This happens to be bamboo viscose, which is regarded as one of the softest types of bamboo. Many sleepers have compared the feel to silk or cashmere, for example. Each set contains one top sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillow cases. This set that I’m testing is a queen size set, but if you do order a king size set, it comes with king size pillow cases. You’ll notice on most bamboo bedding products, there’s no thread count indicated. The general rule of thumb is, 1,000 thread count of cotton is equivalent to 250 thread count of bamboo.

Bamboo is definitely the softer material. Now that we know what these sheets are made of, let’s see how they feel, and how well they stay on the mattress. Sarah: As promised, the feel of these sheets is incredibly soft. Really just — silky, light, airy, breathable material. I can feel how it drapes over my body. I can’t stop rubbing the material. I just think it feels so soothing and silky on my skin. The pillow cases are pretty large. Like I said, this is a queen set that I’m testing. You would, of course, get king size pillow cases with a king size set. These are accommodating a pretty large pillow right now, and they’ve still got a little bit of room to spare.

The opening has this nice flap of fabric, so that you don’t actually see inside of the pillow case, a nice aesthetic value there. A common complaint that sleepers have about sheets is that the fitted sheet becomes untucked throughout the night. Maybe they toss and turn, and wake to find that the sheet has become untucked. I can tell you after rolling around quite a bit in these sheets, that has not happened. All four corners are still snugly tucked under the mattress. Overall, these sheets have a great feel. Like I said, the most important thing to me is how they feel on my body, and to me these are incredibly soothing, comfortable, soft sheets.

For folks who are looking for something silky, light, and breathable, these are a great option. The prices of these sheets range from 249 to 450, but if a hypoallergenic sheet set will improve your quality of life, it might be worth it. There are a lot of things to like about this sheet set. To name a few, the natural properties of bamboo are to be sweat wicking and cooling, so if you heat up during the night, these will be beneficial for you. Another great thing about bamboo is it’s naturally hypoallergenic, so if you have allergies, sensitive skin, these are especially beneficial for you. Something great about Hotel Comfort is they let you try these sheets for 100 days before you have to make any decisions. That’s a long time for even the most indecisive sleeper. My favorite thing about these sheets is just how incredibly soft they are. They feel amazing on my skin, and at the end of the day, that’s the most important factor for me.

There are a few cons to this sheet set. Firstly, the color I received does not exactly match the color represented on the website. It’s not a huge deal, but if you’re picking something other than white, it’s something to bear in mind for sure. Another thing about these sheets is they wrinkle and crease easily. Unfortunately, you cannot iron them, or it would ruin the material. If you want to get the wrinkles out without having to go through the entire wash process, just throw them in the dryer on a low setting, and shake the wrinkles out. One other thing about these sheets is while they’re lovely, light, and breathable, they’re very light, and really not intended to keep you warm. While they might be perfect for summer time, I would definitely switch to something heavier when the winter rolls around. Well, that’s it for now.

Brooklinen vs Parachute vs Snowe vs Boll & Branch – Which Are The Best Sheets 2019?

Sarah: Hey gang. It’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today, we’ll be comparing four sheet sets from some of the most popular bedding brands, Boll & Branch, Parachute, Snowe, and Brooklinen. Let’s take a look at each sheet set side-by-side so that you can decide which one is best for you. Sarah: First up, we’ve got the Classic Core Sheet Set from Brooklinen, just what I’ve got on the mattress right now. These sheets are made from 100 percent long-staple cotton, feature a percale weave, and a 270 thread count. Basically, they’re going to offer this really soft feel, super light, airy, and breathable, but also this crisp hotel bed feel. When I say crisp, I mean super crisp. Percale sheets already have a tendency to be more crisp than sateen sheets for example, but these are maybe the crispest percale sheets I’ve ever tested. Like I said, they’re also light, airy, and breathable, so if you’re a sleeper who needs help staying cool during the night, or if you’re prone to night sweats, these are going to help keep you cool.

Also, if you love a crisp set of sheets, these might be right up your alley. They also come in this very charming tote bag, which in my opinion is a bonus. Another bonus, in my opinion, is that the fitted sheet is labeled. You can breeze past that fitted sheet shuffling. You’ve got the short side labeled short, long side labeled long. I like little touches like that. Of all the sheet sets we’re looking at here, these are the least expensive, but certainly not sacrificing any quality. The price ranges from about 109 to 140 depending on which size you get, a great value.

On to Boll & Branch. Right now on the mattress, I’ve got the brand’s most popular sheet set which is the Solid Hemmed Sheet Set. These sheets are made from 100 percent long-staple organic cotton, feature a 300 thread count, and a sateen weave. As compared to the percale-woven sheets we just saw from Brooklinen, the sateen weave is going to offer a feel that’s much less crisp and much more silky. Additionally, these, like I said, are certified organic, and they’re also a product of Fair Trade manufacturing. That means that the farming partners of Boll & Branch must be paid a living wage.

For you eco-friendly sleepers out there, if ethically sourced sheets is a big factor for you, you might be particularly compatible with these. They do offer a super smooth hand feel, like I said, very soft. They are a little bit steeper in price as compared to the Brooklinen sheets. They range from about 200 to 295. Again, they’re organic, they’re ethically sourced, they feel very durable, so they might just be worth the investment. Next up we’ve got the sateen set and the percale set from Snowe. I’ve got the percale set on the bed right now, which is why the garment bag that it comes in looks a little thinner than the other one. Both sets are made from 100 percent long-staple Egyptian cotton, which is leaving them both feeling super soft and also very durable. The feel is going to differ depending on the weave. The sateen set is going to bring this silky smooth like we just saw with Boll & Branch. You saw the difference between percale and sateen. The sateen is going to offer a silkier smooth feel, lie a little bit heavier on the body, be a little bit thicker in weight.

Then you’ve got the percale set which is very crisp, again, offering this crisp hotel bed feel, and also be more airy and breathable, helping you to keep a little bit cooler. The reason that these are a little bit different from some other sheet sets from some other brands I’ve tested is that while they do differ in feel, they really don’t differ in appearance. That’s because Snowe, they say it’s a matter of personal preference, prefer their sheet sets to all be matte in appearance. Again, with the sateen set, you’re not going to get that luminous sheen that often comes with a sateen weave.

Again, both very soft, both very durable. I would recommend the percale more to sleepers who need help staying cool and prefer that crisp feel. I’d recommend the sateen to those who maybe prefer their sheets to be a little bit heavier in weight, lie a little bit heavier on the body, but they both are very soft and very durable. Price ranges quite a bit from about 188 to 228. It really depends on the size you get and which sheet set you’re getting. Last but certainly not least are these sheet sets from Parachute. I’ve got the sateen set and the percale set. Similar to the percale and sateen sets we just saw from Snowe, these are made from 100 percent long-staple Egyptian cotton. Again, they’re going to be soft and have a very durable quality. Unlike the sheets that we just saw from Snowe, these are not designed to be similar in appearance. Like I said, with Snowe, they’re both designed to have this matte appearance, not the case with Parachute. We’ve got the sateen set which offers this very pretty, super lustrous sheen. It’s got a really pronounced luminous sheen.

Then you’ve got the percale set which is going to be more matte in appearance, which is also contributing to a lighter color. As far as the feel goes, they’re both very true to their percale and sateen personalities. The sateen is giving me this silky, buttery, smooth feel. It’s going to lie a little bit heavier on the body, offering this body-conforming drape. Then you’ve got the percale which is going to be lighter, airy, more breathable, and do a good job helping to keep you cool throughout the night. I will definitely recommend the percale set to folks who need a little bit more help keeping cool. The sateen is probably going to be better suited for the cooler months when you need a little help keeping warm.

As far as price range goes, pretty similar to Brooklinen, it’s about 109 to 170, depending on which size you get. Again, a great value. We’ve seen what they’re all made of, but let’s just recap all of these sheet sets highlights so you can get a better idea about which one is best for you. As far as the Brooklinen Classic Core Sheet Set, definitely recommending these sheets to sleepers who sleep hot. Of all the sheet sets, they’re definitely going to be the lightest, the coolest, and the most breathable. Additionally, if you love a crisp set of sheets, those are probably going to be right up your alley. Boll & Branch, if ethically sourced sheets is an important factor for you, those are definitely the ones that I’m going to recommend. Also, if you like a sateen sheet set with more of a subtle luster but still that silky smooth feel, they’re going to be a great pick.

As far as Snowe goes, I’m going to say the percale is going to be better for sleepers who run hot. The sateen is going to be better for folks who prefer that subtle luster, but really silky smooth feel. Because they’re made of Egyptian cotton, if, Egyptian cotton, you prefer that specific type of cotton, they’re going to offer that Egyptian cotton quality of durability. The Parachute sheets which admittedly are my personal favorite, they are my personal favorite, because the sateen woven sheet set from Parachute offers such a lustrous sheen. I’m definitely recommending the sateen woven set from Parachute for you sleepers who really prefer that very shiny, luminous sheen. The percale set from Parachute, it’s going to appeal more to sleepers who prefer that matte appearance and sleepers who run hot and need a little bit of help having a breathable sheet set cool them down.
