Summer is here in New Orleans! Outside the temperature is almost reaching 100 degrees and inside my air conditioning has been running ALL DAY LONG. We have the thermostat set to 74, but the temperature has not gotten below 78. Because it’s so darn hot outside, 78 degrees feels like heaven indoors! That being said, both my husband and I prefer our bedroom to be cold when we sleep. I love to snuggle into cool sheets and a warm blanket when the room is comfortable, but 78 degrees will just not cut it with my regular bedding. So, I was so excited to hear about a new kind of bed sheet….SHEEX!
“Sheex was developed by two women with one simple goal in mind: To help people sleep better so they can perform at their peak the next day. SHEEX stands alone in creating a new category in bedding and sleepwear. As the world’s first performance bedding, SHEEX is defining a new vocabulary around the Science of Sleep.
How it works:
· Transfers body heat 2X more effectively than cotton, allowing the body to cool itself for faster, deeper sleep onset
· Breathes nearly 50% better to reduce sleep-disrupting temperature fluctuations at night
· Cooler to the touch compared to cotton bedding; Advanced heat and moisture transfer through evaporative cooling
Consequently, this better quality sleep has been proven to yield demonstrably important effects on health and wellness: sleep is vital for muscle growth and repair, improves mental focus and acuity, reduces fatigue and increases energy.”
We received a SHEEX sheet set in white for our Queen size bed which included one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two standard pillow cases. I couldn’t wait to put them into the wash and get them onto my bed for a good nights sleep! After washing and drying, we put them on the mattress and they fit perfectly (nice and tight with no wrinkles!). I love that the sheets have seams which makes it easy to align them on the mattress to get the perfect look on your bed.
Crawling into bed was heavenly. The SHEEXS performance bedding was incredibly soft and COOL even in the heat of Summer! They were light on the skin and breathable which made the heat bearable in my home. Both my husband and I agree that we love SHEEX and would love to own more sets!
Now that SHEEX is available at Bed Bath and Beyond we may just have to check out their entire line including baby bedding and travel accessories! Don’t miss any of the action by following SHEEX on Twitter and Facebook!
