That said, I’ve been a cotton guy my whole life, but I’ve got a couple of Under Armour tees that are polyester, breathe, wick sweat away, and don’t stink. I assume that is some special thing they do. I’m not buying polyester sheets.
@boygenius1991 I saw it. Figured I’d leave a truncated review here in case people view it on mobile. I know I can’t always see the writeup when I check the daily deal on my cell.
Pretty cool to be famous. This must be how Leonardo DiCaprio feels. Thanks for the shoutout, meh.
I also have under armor undershirts and duluth trading company underwear as well that say they’re 100% polyester and they’re pretty great. They breathe, wick sweat, etc. I think it has something to do with the pattern used. The duluth trading company fabric has a tessellated rhombus thing on it with some high sections and some low. I’m not sure what under armor does to treat their fabric, but it works pretty well too.
I think if you had a whole sheet of those materials draped over you while you sleep, it would probably make you sweat too.
If you bought them and they work for you, more power to you. For people who bought and enjoyed these sheets, are you on the slim side? I’m a little heavy, so tend to overheat easily regardless of circumstance. Just posting my personal experience, as one does on a consumer products site.
@boygenius1991 I am not buying these sheets but loved the write-up. I do have some microfiber sheets though and do not seem to have a sweat issue with them.
And although I am over a hundred pounds slimmer than a few years ago, I am still probably another hundred away from anyone calling me slim.
@Kidsandliz@shortman Cotton has a high moisture regain. Polyester has a moisture regain of zero. That makes a big difference. Fibers like Coolmax are polyester with special shapes for wicking but I doubt this is Coolmax.
@mfladd Even now, the cool, silky smoothness that awaits my fatigued body beckons from yonder bedroom. I submit myself nightly to the seductress known as my Cotton Touch Microfiber Sheet Set. She embraces and comforts me nightly into a sound slumber. I bid you goodnight for she calls to me and I must answer.
@boygenius1991@JT954 I grew up sleeping on cotton/polyester sheets because they didn’t wrinkle and my mom, at the time, believed in ironing wrinkled sheets. None of us in the family complained about being hot and sweaty. Many, many shirts, dresses, etc. people wear are a cotton polyester mix and they don’t stink up the work place nor walk around looking like they are sweating as if they just ran a marathon. Tons of the coverings on couches and chairs are that fabric mix too. Fleece blankets and jackets are 100% polyester and no one complains about being hot and sweaty because they are made of polyester fleece…
I got these last time here at Meh and they are my new go to sheet. Even in warm California. Love them and might even get some more for the guest room, friends, family. Nothing at all wrong with these. Wife even likes them.
Pro tip: before using these sheets, run them through the washer with liquid fabric softener. Dry on medium heat. When you slide yourself between these silky smooth, better-than-cotton touch sheets, you’ll thank me.
