Yes, Amazon's Mellanni Bedsheets Are Worth the Hype
Sweet dreams are made of this cult-favorite Amazon sheet set (with more than 338K reviews!).
Word on the street (read: social media) is that Amazon's Mellanni bedsheets are what sweet, restful and restorative dreams are made of. Countless bloggers and lifestyle influencers have dubbed the Mellanni sheets the best budget bedsheets on the market because of their luxe, hotel look, cooling quality and unmatched softness. Naturally, I had to see what all the buzz was about. And, if I’m being honest, it was well past the time for me to invest in some new bed linens. So, in the spirit of research and the pursuit of sound sleep, I added the white king-sized Mellanni sheets to my cart and had them overnighted to my door.
Flash-forward to a month later, and today, I’m here to confirm the rumors. Yes, these sheets are superior to all my previous bedsheets, and yes, I wish I had bought them sooner. Get the scoop on why you need the Mellanni sheets in your life and read all the need-to-know info in my full breakdown below.
Mellanni Sheets Colors + Sizes
First things first, Mellanni covers all the bases with color and size ranges. The celebrated bedsheets are available in 42 unique color options ranging from neutral tones like black, white, beige, ivory and sage to vibrant hues like teal, yellow and persimmon. There are a few classic stripe and floral print options in the mix, too. Plus, the sheets feature an embroidered stripe border along the top in a coordinating thread color that lends them an elevated appeal.
I went with the classic white option because between wearing self-tanner overnight and sharing my bed with my husband and our two rambunctious pups, I need to be able to bleach my bedding. That said, Mellanni warns against bleaching these sheets, so I’ve held off on it for now, but I can happily report that my white sheets have held up against my bronzing routine and look just as crisp and pristine after the wash as they did out of the box.
To say the sizing is inclusive would be an understatement. Mellanni offers their buttery-soft sheets in 15 sizes. That’s right — 15 sizes. Each sheet set includes one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two pillowcases. You can snag the traditional twin, queen or king option or tailor your bedsheets to perfection with extended options like the extra-deep pocket options or the RV short queen selection.
What Are Mellanni Sheets Made Of?
The Mellanni sheets are double-brushed microfiber designed to cool you off during the summer and keep you nice and cozy throughout the colder months. Better still, the Mellanni sheets are Oeko-Tex certified and shrink, stain, fade, wrinkle and pill-resistant. Once again, Mellanni delivers.
Although I purchased my Mellanni sheets in February, I live in North Carolina. While this probably seems irrelevant, the intel is worth noting because the temps here have oscillated between 50 and 80 degrees since they landed on my doorstep. Our primary bedroom is upstairs (as you know, heat rises), so our bedroom tends to be quite warm by the time we tuck in. Then factor that in with the fact that my loving, sweet husband is a living, breathing radiator at night — yeah, let's say having cooling sheets that deliver on their promise is critical to a good night's sleep in our house, and Mellanni does just that.
My husband and I have yet to wake up in a sweat with the Mellanni sheets. Another good sign? Getting out of bed is the ultimate feat each morning because the microfiber remains at the perfectly warm-but-not-too-warm temperature.
Now you're thinking, "Okay, Maria, thank you for the thorough breakdown above, but what does the microfiber feel like?" And to that, I say, fair question. The best way I can describe these beauties? The Mellanni sheets marry the softness of a cotton or t-shirt-style fabric with the crispness of a Percale sheet. These fan-favorite sheets are lightweight but not slippery or flimsy and appear tailored without the starchy, scratchy feeling.
Caring for Mellanni Sheets
Caring for Mellanni sheets is straightforward; throw your sheets in on a cold cycle and tumble dry on low. Mellanni says bleaching, ironing and dry-cleaning are not recommended, so I'd go ahead and avoid those altogether.
Along with the top-quality microfiber material discussed above, these sheets feature the Mellanni Signature Z-fold technology elastic edging that keeps your fitting sheet in place no matter how much you toss and turn. Or, in my case, no matter how many times your 75-pound dogs jump up and leap off the bed each day.
