Picking out the best bedding can be a little tricky. Why? When you want high quality and something that suits your specific needs, there are a number of important things you must consider that are our mandate at Good and Bed. Here’s why we are better than our competition and why you need to try our finely crafted products to ensure you have the best sleep of your life!
The material each bedding piece is made of can affect its quality. Cotton is the most common fabric and tends to work year-round.
Keep an eye out for long-staple cottons, as they're stronger and smoother. High quality will come from the carefulness of the threading and whether it feels smooth or coarse. Rough fabrics are low quality and are sure to keep you from having a truly comfortable sleeping experience.
Our Premiere Classics is considered a more breathable fabric that wicks away moisture so you don’t get too hot while you’re sleeping.
High quality bedding is more about the way it makes you feel for the sleep you need. If you run hot when you sleep, it might be a good option. With that being said, if you like super smooth bedding, this is the right choice for you.
Silk is great for being both breathable and cozy. There’s a reason they say “silky smooth.”
If you like a rich, comfortable smooth fabric against your skin at night, consider silk to be the choice of fabric for you. However, keep in mind that silk sheets must be dry cleaned. As a result, you may also want to decide if dry cleaning your sheets is a viable option.
A thread count is the number of vertical and horizontal threads per square inch. Thread counts that go upwards of 500 tend to be softer and warmer. But, on occasion, to some people the sensation of too soft and too warm is uncomfortable. Personal taste makes all the difference. A higher thread count doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality.
Really low thread counts, for example, those under 150, will feel rough and uncomfortable. Generally less than 200 is considered to be on the low side, with 300 or more being soft and long-lasting.
Duvets and pillows have different insides or fills. There are three major types.
This type is hypoallergenic and wicks away moisture. Alpaca wool is of the highest quality to keep you warm through the winter, but it comes at a price. You may also want to think about the weather where you live. If it gets hot in the summer, you’ll be changing duvets and pillows for the season.
Known for feathers, it's warm and lightweight. While down pillows are often considered expensive, this doesn’t mean they’re more high quality. If you have allergies, don’t choose down pillows as the feather might make you sneeze throughout the night or feel groggy in the morning. If allergies aren’t a concern, look for down pillows that start out very full. Why? They tend to compress the more you sleep on them.
These are hypoallergenic and easy care. For pillows, memory foam is a popular option to give you a firmer, personal comfort. If you’re shopping on a budget, synthetic tends to be the more inexpensive option, but watch for consistency in the fullness. You may pay a little extra for memory foam, but most find the firm and personal shaping to be comforting.
Let's face it: Personal taste goes a long way in choosing what the right fit is for you. But, it's better to take these different factors into account before opting for one product over another. After all, the product you choose will directly affect the quality of your sleep and that’s exactly why our product lines are meticulously designed to be the very best quality with attention to detail on every aspect so you have the very best sleep experience of your life.
