Arguably one of the most important factors in getting quality sleep is your bedding. Say, for instance, you’re someone who likes to stay cool throughout the night. Breezy, linen-based bedding will help regulate your body temperature so you don’t feel overheated. On the flip side, 100% cotton sheets are ideal for those who like to stay warm while they slumber. In short, investing in the right bedding can actually make a huge difference to the overall quality of your snoozes.
Aside from getting a good night’s rest, top-notch bed linens also can stay with you season after season without needing to be replaced. And while bedding of this caliber is oftentimes synonymous with a hefty price tag, many companies are making luxury bedding options accessible and affordable.
Case in point: these outstanding brands below. All of them feature competitive pricing (such as free shipping or direct-to-consumer price tags) and on-trend styles, so that you can get sheets that feel good, look good—and cost far less than what you’d expect.
A millennial favorite, Buffy offers eco-friendly products that keep you and the earth staying comfy.

Inspired by a trip to a picturesque hotel on the Amalfi Coast, Ariel Kaye set out to create linens that were just as comfortable and durable as the ones you would find in a five-star resort—minus the astronomical markups. Her brainchild is Parachute, a direct-to-consumer company that’s driven by its mission to create the highest-quality linens without using any toxins or environmentally unfriendly chemicals along the way (Parachute is Oeko-Tex certified, which is a designation even higher than organic). On the site you’ll find sateen, linen, and percale options that fit a more laid-back aesthetic. And since the brand cuts out the middleman, there’s no department store markups to be found. Pro tip: If you opt in for a bundle of a bedding set along with a duvet insert, there are even more savings to be had.
