Brooklinen Luxury Bedding: Sleep Like a Baby on the Softest 480 Thread Count Sateen Sheets

Most of us spend an average of 8 hours in bed every day; that equals basically 1/3 of our lives, and that’s why it’s so important that the bed we sleep on and the sheets we sleep in are comfortable and conducive to a good night’s sleep. For the last week, I’ve been enjoying the Brooklinen Luxe Hardcore Sheet Bundle.


You might be asking yourself why you’d want to purchase your sheets from a company you’ve never have heard from with a virtual store that you can’t visit to check out the goods in person. Well, much like other successful online stores, Brooklinen has removed all fo the pain from what could otherwise be a doubt-filled experience.

Try us for 60 nights risk free. If you aren’t completely satisfied we offer free return US shipping and easy exchanges, no questions asked.

60 days is plenty of time to decide if you like how a set of sheets feels and to see how it holds up after multiple washes, right?

So let’s take a look at Brooklinen’s Luxe Hardcore Sheet Bundle. By purchasing in this bundle, you’ll save 25% off the price of purchasing the items separately. Inside the box, you get a duvet cover, four pillowcases, a flat sheet, and a fitted sheet. They also include a tote bag that holds your purchases and a sample of their Laundress Signature Detergent.

• Includes a Flat Sheet, Fitted Sheet, Duvet Cover and 4 Pillowcases
• 480 thread count in a sateen weave
• 100% Long-Staple Cotton
• Oeko-Tex® certified to be free of harmful chemicals
• Duvet covers have internal corner ties and button closure
• Fits mattresses up to 15″ depth
• King and Cal King Core Sets come with king pillowcases

The sheets are composed of “super-fine 80 count yarns in a rich 480 thread count.” There are eleven different solid or patterns to choose from, and when you order the sheet bundle, you can mix or match to make your bed look the way you want it to look.

The first thing I noticed when setting up my bed, beyond how soft the set felt, was that the duvet cover had ties inside it like the better duvet covers that I’ve been purchasing for years. Nothing is as aggravating as putting your comforter inside a cover and there being no way to secure the four corners — that leads to unwanted drooping and bunching. The inside corner ties are extra long, and if you’ve never used them before, my tip is to tie a bow similar to how you tie your shoes — but skip the usual first part where you do a half-knot — just go right into the bow part. That makes it easier to untie when it’s time to wash the duvet cover.


This was a nice touch that I haven’t seen on any other sheets: the long and short sides are labeled. On a striped set like this, it might not seem like that big of a deal, but when you’re using solid sheets, you’ll appreciate the heads up.

The pillowcases have a single stitch on the top side and they are tucked on the bottom side — I’ve pulled them back on the pillows a bit so you can see the detail.

I’ve been using the sheets for a couple of weeks and they’ve been through the washer once — they only got softer. I love the scent of the Laundress Signature Detergent sample they included, so I’ll be ordering a bottle for future washes. My bed is now even more comfortable, and I love its new stripes. When you order, you can select the size for your mattress and add in a different size for the pillows, if like me, you use king pillows on your queen bed.

If you care about your sleep experience, you’ll want to check out Brooklinen. Assuming you’ve already got a supremely comfortable mattress, this is the next step to ensuring a comfortable, peaceful, and yes — luxurious — sleep experience.

The Brooklinen Luxe Hardcore Sheet Bundle retails for $198 and up, and it is available only from Brooklinen.
