Deep Pocket Sheets Review – New DreamFit Cotton Bed Linens
Contributor: Rosemarie Boulanger
The new DreamFit cotton sheets felt soft but crisp to the touch out of the box. We put the cotton sheet set on the bed prior to washing to check for any shrinkage later, since they are 100% cotton bed linens. The first thing we noticed was how generous the pillow cases were sized on a standard pillow case, allowing the pillow to retain its normal shape rather than the pillow case dictating the size of the pillow as with many other cotton sheet sets. The flat cotton bed sheet was also sized generously.
When we slid into the freshly laundered cotton sheets, a beautiful sky blue color, at first touch, we were changed forever! We just couldn’t believe how soft these cotton sateen sheets felt. They just floated over the body like you were on a cloud. The cotton sheets lightly drape the body. We found these 310 thread count cotton bed sheets to have a lighter, more delicate feel to them than a lower thread count. After experiencing a high thread count, is to be changed forever. Sliding into these sheets after a long day of work or play brings a smile and a sigh of pure pleasure.
The DreamFit cotton sheets really are about “the fit”. The fit on this Queen bed was just impeccable without a lot of tugging or adjusting.
The white satin piping on the edge of the pillowcases and the flat sheet are a very nice touch and add to the elegance of the overall presentation.
Luxury cotton bed linens require a bit more care than the average run-of-the-mill sheets. In this case, bleaching is a no-no and tumble dry on the dryer’s low cycle is a must. With a high thread count cotton sheet, it’s important to take them out of the dryer immediately and fold them or put them back on the bed as a higher thread count cotton sheet can wrinkle more. DreamFit sheets do not wrinkle as much as other high thread count cotton bed sheets.
Be mindful of the straps on the fitted sheet. This is at the core of the DreamFit system. When you have a thick mattress and/or thick mattress pad, the DreamFit sheets have extra deep pockets with the straps to hold the sheets in place. Although the straps fold on themselves off the bed, be aware of the straps as you are taking the fitted sheet out of the washer. You wouldn’t want them to get caught on the agitator in the washing machine.
