Brooklinen is offering an exclusive deal on its coveted linen bedding through October.
By most accounts, we spend as much as a third of our lives in bed. So luxurious bedding is an investment well worth making. If you tend to sleep "hot," that means hunting down the coolest, most breathable bedding available.
After waking up in a sweat in the middle of the night for the past couple weeks, I've been on the lookout for bed sheets that may be able to help me sleep a little more soundly. After testing out some awesome, innovative eucalyptus sheets, I've been curious about lightweight linen sheets. Linen sheets are known for being crisp and breathable, and they get softer with age and each wash. But, they're also known for not being cheap. When you're splurging on bedding that costs a few hundred dollars, you want to make sure you're investing in a set that will last you for years.
While conducting my research for the ultimate summer bed sheets, one contender caught my eye while scrolling through bed sheet review boards on Reddit: Brooklinen's linen bedding. Several Reddit shoppers said that Brooklinen was their favorite brand for sheets—and that they'd even bought a set for their friends or family members, who loved them too. Brooklinen has been on my radar for a while, and the unprompted reviews were so compelling, I've been eyeing a set of their coveted sheets ever since.
And now I'm ready to pounce, considering that Brooklinen is offering $20 off each order of its linen bedding, exclusively for Real Simple readers through the end of October. Just enter REALSIMPLE20 at checkout and get ready to rest easy in some of the most beloved—and now affordable—linen sheets on the market.
Linen Core Sheet Set
If you're looking for a basic linen sheet set that will see you through the summer (and many summers to come), Redditors swear by this starter sheet set that comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. "I've owned Brooklinen sheets for over a year now. Since then, I've purchased a second set, and have purchased 2 sets for my parents. As you may be able to tell, I am a huge fan," writes Reddit user thecamyeh.
And how well do they stand up to wear? When one Reddit user asked if there's any pilling after a year, thecamyeh responded: "None whatsoever. They've gotten softer in the past year but no pilling or anything. I have had 1 loose thread but obviously that's no big deal."
