**PLEASE NOTE: While Perfect Linens DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**
I don’t have too many “favorite” brands in use around our home. I like a variety of decor pieces, appliances and furnishings – you’ll find a little bit of everything if you come over! But there ARE several things that are crazy important to me when it comes to our house. And one of those items would be: SHEETS.
I’m big on sheets, y’all. I never thought I would be a person who cares about thread counts and deep pockets and oversized flat sheets, but I totally am. I look at it like this: my hubby and I both work some pretty high-stress jobs. Sleep is incredibly important to us! And the more comfortable we are, the better we sleep. And the better we sleep, the better we can handle what’s needed of us on a daily basis. So…sheets. Sheets are important!
I was actually on the hunt for a new set of sheets for our bed a few weeks ago when I got an email from the lovely Catherine from Perfect Linens.
The company name grabbed my attention instantly, because I felt like that was exactly what I was on the hunt for: the perfect linens! Turns out they have the right to be called that, too. The folks at Perfect Linens are literally sheet experts! Their website specializes in sheets ONLY (no other products) and they have more than 30 years of experience selling sheets to some of the biggest retailers out there!
So, you get to be a sheet expert by selling a lot of sheets, eh? Well, not exactly. Perfect Linens actually TESTS for the best sheets using instruments and fabric analysis, such as companies like Nike and NASA would. No joke! Check out their laboratory!
They build their sheets based on that objective research, even testing their sheets AFTER they’ve been washed multiple times! Instead of focusing on things like thread-count, Perfect Linens focuses on how the sheets FEEL. Plus, they offer free shipping both ways and a 45-night LOVE IT (use and abuse, they’ll accept the return) satisfaction guarantee. I mean, come on. You can’t find a guarantee like that ANYWHERE! Seems like they’re pretty proud of their sheets – so I decided it was time to put them to the test.
Catherine sent me a set of Perfect Linens Second Skin sheets, which the company says is the “most supple sheet they have tested”. The outstanding suppleness comes from a natural enzyme process which removes molecules from the cell walls of the cotton, making the fibers easier to bend. Furthermore, the suppleness will not wash out because the enzyme process is permanent! Also included in my package was a bottle of mild detergent created to preserve linen fibers…that smells so amazing I wanted to wash ALL of my laundry with it! Good thing I can order more of that!
I washed the sheets according the care instructions, placed them on the bed with ease, and stepped back to admire the finished product.
First off, things that I LOVE about these sheets:
They fit our pillow-top mattress PERFECTLY.
Those of you who have a pillow-top and struggle to get a good set of sheets that actually fit the super-thick mattress understand exactly what I mean. I sprained no wrists and threw out no shoulders fighting to get these sheets on – they fit beautifully!
The over-sized flat sheet is FANTASTIC.
Let me stop and say that I sleep with a man who performs several what I call “angry turns” per night. I have no idea why, but about 3 times each night, my husband will roll from his back to his side with so much force and frustration that it not only wakes me up, but makes me have to roll over and yank back all the covers he’s stolen away. (Does anyone else have a husband who does this?! I mean, WHAT on earth? It’s like he’s upset about being asleep!) Anyways, with these sheets, there is so much sheet leftover, he can do whatever turns he wants, and all I have to do is roll my eyes and go back to sleep. LOVE.
Now, you can see in the photo above that the sheet looks a tad bit wrinkled. Well, it was.
The washing instructions for these sheets is to take them out of the dryer still slightly damp, and put them on the bed that way. Once they’re on, THEN smooth out the wrinkles by hand.
So, I snapped this pic before I had smoothed them out. Here’s one from after the smoothing…
Lovely! And don’t you like that pretty lil’ stitching? It’s a lovely detail, and matches our bedspread just perfectly!
As far as the sleeping goes, I must say that these sheets are nothing less than magnificent. They are SO comfy! I’ve never experienced being warm and yet cool at the same time with sheets, and I’m talking all night long. It’s almost as if they regulate the temperature of the bed, which is no small feat! And you know that feeling you get when you climb into bed and the sheets have JUST been washed earlier that day, and they’re totally fresh and wonderful? I promise you, these sheets feel like that even a week after being washed. No joke. It’s like I’ve changed the sheets every single night before bed…but I totally HAVE NOT.
Overall, I have to give resounding applause and recommendation to Perfect Linens.
Oh, and that’s not all! Perfect Linens wants YOU to try their sheets, too! But, they want you to have a bit of a bargain – and who doesn’t love a bargain?!

Seriously, these are the real deal, folks. There’s really no need for me to look anywhere else for sheets any more. In fact, I plan on ordering another set for our guest room! Thanks to Catherine and all the other fine people at Perfect Linens for a marvelous introduction to their products!
My only question for YOU is, are you as picky about your bed linens as I am? If you are, I highly recommend you try Perfect Linens. After all, when it comes to your sheets, you deserve perfection!
