OK, so my dumbassness is going to come out in this thread. My sheets are done. I need some new ones. However, I know nothing about sheets. My last sheets purchase was dictated by, "oooohhh Look! those ones are cheap!". I need some CP wisdom with sheets.

Coincidently, I did try sheets treated with antifreeze. They were OK, but didn't last too long.

500 thread count feels good when you're naked.

Get the ones with the highest thread count you can afford. They feel the best rubbing on your nads if you freeball it when you sleep.

Like what's a decent threadcount? I have this problem of being a cheap piece of shit.

How old are your current sheets? If they are 5+ then practically anything will feel better to you. Just buy at the price you feel comfortable with.

Don't cheap out on sheets. Prior to marriage I had no clue on how important quality was in purchasing sheets. Mrs. Toad educated me properly.

The higher the thread count - the higher the quality. Just do it.

The higher the number the better...or more soft to the skin...the lower the number the more coarse the fabric and the less likely you will sleep in the buff....I figure if you like sleeping in sandpaper/cardboard why not just buy sandpaper/cardboard?

Between 100 to 400 is good. No need to go higher than 400 really.

The cheap sheets you get from Wal Mart are around a 200 thread count. The real nice ones probably start around 500-600 and they go up from there. If you go in the store just open the packages and feel the difference. The more expensive ones will be more slick and a lot stiffer, and they will last a lot longer.

Get yourself some flannel sheets for the winter. For the rest of the year go with some 800 thread count egyptian cotton sheets. They're great for fuckin.

Try Costco or Sams for high thread count sheets if you have a membership. I bought some 500 thread count recently at Sams for about $35 for the set.

Flannel sheets for the winter are the way to go, you'll love them. And no, they aren't in that goofy checkerboard crap, we have ours in royal blue and another set in red.

For the summer, see if you can find some jerseys tee shirt sheets. I love those things. If not, as has already been mentioned, it's usually worth spending a little more to get the nicer ones. You definitely get what you pay for with sheets.

Exactly. I mean, if you sleep in your clothes who gives a shit right? Snuggle up next to some dog turd sheets, but if you sleep in your commando manjamas, spend the $70 on a nice sheet set. You'll get more fellatio. Trust me, I'm a Doctor.

After I moved in with the sig other she complained about the military surplus sandpaper I was sleeping on and stated we should get new sheets. And without thinking, I blurted out that "No one else has ever complained" which turns out is not a good thing to say to a girl you've just moved in with.

Ok man there is much more than simply thread count to consider with sheets. First off you sleep on these every night, kind important IMO so don’t cheap out here. While thread count is important, ply is as much if not more (the number of threads wrapped together before weaving). "A sheet labeled "1,000 thread count" technically could be 250 threads per inch woven with a four-ply thread." Opt for a high thread count and single ply to get the best quality sheets.
Next you need to FEEL the sheets, I’m a big fan of Egyptian Cotton but to each his own whatever you do run with a natural fiber they seem to last longer and breathe better than the synthetic material.
Again buy the best sheets you can afford.

01-15-2009, 07:56 AM
Thread count. The higher the thread count, the better the sheets. They're also usually more expensive, but well worth it.

Get at least 200 thread count sheets. I used to scoff at the idea of paying that much for sheets, but my wife got some 400 count and they are REALLY comfortable.

I've never really cared about sheets so long as they stay on the bed.


Beds now... I made my ex husband buy a new bed before I'd sleep in his, and I got lucky that the new boyfriend had just bought a new bed... Only the Interim boyfriend got to keep his bed.

Oooo and pillows. I like beds and pillows. Sheets are for girls.

Mr. Plow
01-15-2009, 09:16 AM

Ya. My parents bought it for their bed, took it home and washed it. It shrunk just enough that it wouldn't fit their bed. It's a standard king sheet and apparently they need california king - whatever that is.

Secret tip: In the winter, flannel sheets will make you feel like royalty. Imagine climbing into bed and the sheets aren't cold.

In the summer, you don't want flannel, though. Buy cotton for summer and flannel for winter.

All I care about with sheets is that they are big enough for the damn bed. I hate buying king sized sheets, only to put them on and have them popping off the corners with the slightest movement. I'm sorta anal about certain things and I've been known to actually put the sheets back on the corners of the bed whilst doing the deed. True story. Sully doesn't know though because I'm a good distractor.

Kohls had a really good sale on all bed coverings. Pretty good selection too. I would not ever get flannel ones though. They'll roast you.

The best sheets are definately the high thread count egyptian cotton. but they are usually quite expensive.
A reasonable step down from that is jersey cotton. you can find it at bed bath and beyond.

If you're looking for some good values on sheets, a good place to check is Overstock.com. A couple of years ago, we picked some 800 thread count sheets for around $50 each, and they were worth every penny.

If you're used to 200-300 thread count sheets, you'll definitely tell the difference.

I've always liked the idea of flannel sheets, but my one requirement for sheets is that they be printed with winter themes like polar bears or snowflakes.

Let me know if they ever make a winter-themed flannel sheet set!
