If you find yourself doing the ol’ one leg out, one leg in and tossing and turning during the night because you can’t find the perfect temperature, you’re not alone. While some of us are just naturally ‘hot sleepers’ and need a little more than a pedestal fan to keep us cool during the summer months, others simply need the perfect set of linen, bamboo or cotton bedsheets for a good night’s sleep.

As someone who purchased bamboo sheets last summer, it’s one of the best investments I’ve made. I also know how tricky it can be to find the perfect pair of bedsheets. It’s best to stick to lighter, natural fibres and fabrics — think 100% cotton, bamboo and 100% flaxseed — in summer that allow your body to breathe and naturally regulate its temperature.

Sweaty, sleepless nights are a thing of the past, and I no longer need to stick one leg out of the sheets and live in fear of having it grabbed by something under the bed… IYKYK.

In the spirit of helping you, our dear reader, I’ve hunted down the best bedsheets to slap on your bed.
