I love online shopping.
I mean, who doesn’t, right?
Shopping is a crazy obsession of mine, and whether it’s the right thing or not, I don’t see my life without a little splurging here and there.
For the past few years, shopping in person has been such a drag… I’m not sure what it is. It could be the lack of options at my local stores, the layout of things, or just the overall browsing that has become so annoying (plus, you have access to a bunch of discounts when shopping online!).
Online shopping also has its downsides. For example, products not looking as stated on the pictures, or products arriving damaged or with defects.
One product category that I haven’t had much luck when it comes to online shopping is bed-wear, especially bed sheets, blankets, and such.
During the past few months, I’ve received bed sheets with oil stains, burned spots, bad smell, or loose seams everywhere.
I’m soon moving into a new apartment (which I’m soooooo excited about), so I’m gradually buying a few things here and there to make a smooth transition, including bed-wear.
After my many bedsheets fiasco, I gave up for a while, but decided to give it one more try (hey, maybe the 1,000 times is the charm).
As I was browsing online, I saw many bedsheets claiming that they were made with Egyptian cotton and how the quality was superb. After narrowing it down, I decided to buy a fitted bedsheet by American Pillowcase (at $27.99 it was worth the shot). In the end, I was pleasantly surprised.
Upon receiving my bed-wear, the first thing I couldn’t help noticing is how silky smooth it feels. That’s when I learned the factors that differentiate Egyptian cotton from the typical cotton we are used to: fabric is very soft, breathable, and comfortable. The breathability of the fabric is so great, that it’s perfectly suitable to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
One thing that I loved about this brand is how well made this bed-wear is. It has a thread count of 400, providing greater durability. It also has great hypoallergenic qualities, meaning that it reduces allergens and provides better grip for sensitive skin. I can attest that the threading and made of this bed-wear is superior to all the fiascos I came across to. The stitches are very well aligned, without imperfections or loose seams. I also love that the fabric is very smooth, so the fabric looks solid instead of interconnected.
I’m loving my new find, and I think you should check it out!
