Staying fit is not just about losing weight.
The best sheets, according to our own research, are the ones that fit well.
Read on for tips on how to choose the right sheet for you and your body.
Choose a fabric with a lot of stretch, as it’s less likely to tear and cause pain when you’re using it as a pillow.
A good sheet is going to have stretch to keep you warm.2.
Choose lightweight, breathable fabrics like polyester and polyester blend for comfort.
The fabric’s breathability means it can stay dry in the sun, even in summer, and it’s stretchy enough to let you sit up and stretch your legs even in the coldest parts of the year.3.
Choose the right thickness of fabric to suit your needs.
We like the polyester-polyester blend that’s about three inches thick, because it will keep your skin hydrated, while still staying thin enough to protect your skin and your bones.
The cotton blend that we prefer is thicker and has a higher density of fibers, so it won’t tear easily.4.
Choose soft-sheet materials for comfortable wear.
They have stretch so that they won’t make you squirm when you sit on them.
Soft-sheets are more comfortable and won’t scratch your skin as easily.5.
Make sure that the fabric is lightweight and doesn’t make your body feel bulky.
Soft sheets are also more likely to keep your feet dry than hard-sheeting sheets.6.
Choose fabrics that have a high stretch-to-weight ratio.
That means that the weight of the fabric doesn’t go down as much when you stretch it.
A higher-stretch fabric will make you feel like you’re standing on a pile of laundry rather than on a pillow, and a higher-weight fabric won’t pinch your toes as much as a heavier one.7.
Choose materials that aren’t going to make your skin itch.
If your sheets are soft enough, that won’t bother you, but if they’re not stretchy or not comfortable for you, that could be a problem.
You can also try buying an absorbent fabric instead of a hard-sheet sheet, because they’ll absorb sweat better and will feel less sweaty when you move.8.
Buy polyester sheet covers.
Polyester is one of the most breathable, stretchy sheets.
You’ll feel like your skin is warm even in warm weather, and the polyurethane-reinforced-coating (PRC) material will keep you comfortable in hot, humid weather.
It won’t cause as much friction on your skin or skin tissue, and your sheets won’t rub off when you take them off.
Polyester is also available in a wide variety of colors, so you can choose one that’s right for you.
