Purple Sheets Review – Are Bamboo Sheets Soft and Stretchy Enough?

[background music] Sarah: Hey, guys. It’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Purplebed sheet. As you can see I haven’t even unboxed themyet. I’m just as excited as you are to see what’sinside. Now, some of you might already be familiarwith Purple’s mattresses or the Purple pillow. If you want to check out our reviews of thosePurple products, just Google Sleepopolis Purple and it’ll be the first things that pop up.For this review, we’ll be taking a close examinationof Purple’s bed sheets. I’m going to show you what I like about them,what I’m not crazy about, and for whom I think these sheets might be particularly beneficial. Of course, there is a wide world of beddingout there. If after this video you’re not so sure thatthis sheet set is the right one for you, just Google Sleepopolis Best Sheets and we’ll helpyou find the one that is. All right, let’s get started. [background music] Sarah: OK, this I’m fully keeping for a hairband. I officially got the sheets out of the boxand onto the mattress. Right away, I’m thinking there’s no way thisis bamboo-based bedding because every set of bamboo sheets I’ve ever tested have beenvery wrinkly.As you can see, these are completely wrinkle-free. They have this smooth look. I’m just impressed that they are, in fact,made from a blend of viscose from bamboo and spandex. Now, the folks at Purple say that bamboo-basedfabric makes for the best bed sheets. While that is, of course, a subjective opinion,the fabric derived from bamboo does have a reputation for being naturally breathable,moisture-wicking, super soft. If you want to know more about the perks ofbamboo-based bedding, I do go into deeper detail in my full written review, which islinked below. Now, as you can see, I’ve got it in the sandcolor. That’s what it’s called, sand. However, Purple does offer their sheet setsin a variety of colors, including their signature purple color, which from what I’ve seen isvery purple. What are you getting with each Purple sheetset? You’re getting a top sheet, a fitted sheet,and two pillowcases. Right now, I’m on the Purple 3 mattress. Of course, you don’t need to use a Purplemattress in order to enjoy Purple sheets. However, the folks at Purple do say that thesesheets were designed with the Purple mattresses in mind.They’re stretchy quality and as you can seethey are super stretchy. The stretchy quality is designed to complementthe stretchy and rubbery nature of the mattresses so that the sheets are flexing with the mattressin this unique to Purple way. The fitted sheet, as you can see here, iscapable of accommodating mattresses up to 16-inches deep. That’s pretty deep pockets. This particular mattress is about 12-inchesdeep. I just tucked the excess fabric tightly underthe mattress so I can get that snug fit. Now, for the pillowcases, this is the Purplepillow if you couldn’t tell. It’s 10 pounds. I just wanted you Purple loyalists out thereto get a look at what the Purple pillow looks like inside the Purple pillowcase. As you can see, there’s plenty of room tospare. It more than accommodates this pillow. Something I don’t love is that the openingis on the side. There’s a little bit of this pillow spillageout of here.It’s a pet peeve of mine, but we’ll get intothat later. Just so you can see what it looks like accommodatinga standard size pillow, a little less room to spare here, a little less excess fabrichanging out. My first impression is that they are supersmooth to the touch. I’m also getting the sense that they’re verybreathable, very light and airy, which is great for hot sleepers like myself who aretrying to stave off those night sweats at night.Of course, the only way to get a sense forthis bedding is to roll around in it. Let’s check it out. [background music) Sarah: OK, so first things first. These are the stretchiest sheets I’ve evertested. The first thing I’m noticing is that thismaterial is pulling with me. It’s got this quick, just stretchy responsewhen I pull on it. Right off the bat, it’s giving me these uniquevibes that I’m into. Secondly, the most important factor for mewhen I’m picking the bedding that’s right for me is how the fabric feels against mybare skin. I can tell you this particular fabric feelsso smooth to the touch. I can’t stop rubbing my hands all over thesheets. Now the fitted sheet is another thing I’mloving because there’s no gaping or no bunching of any kind. This stretchy quality is serving to help itadhere very tightly to the mattress. Like I said, you can pluck it, of course,and it’ll bounce right back, but there’s no unkempt- looking bunching, or gaping, or anythinglike that. That’s important to me.Speaking of the fitted sheet, another mostimportant factor for me when I’m picking the bedding that I like is how well the fittedsheet actually stays put on the mattress. I’m a bit of a restless combo sleeper, soI need to know that amidst all my tossing and turning, the fitted sheet is never goingto become untucked. I can tell you I’m pleased to report thatamidst all my tossing, and turning, and switching positions, the fitted sheet never even closeto became untucked.It does come equipped with a very thick elasticband that surrounds the perimeter of the fitted sheet. That’s doing a great job of keeping this fittedsheet on the mattress. Something that I’m not crazy about from anaesthetic standpoint are the pillowcases. This stretchy quality is making them lookalmost a little baggy on the pillow, particularly the Purple pillow. The Purple pillow is not a lofty pillow rightoff the bat. There’s a ton of excess fabric. I just don’t think it looks that great, tobe honest. Not to mention, I do prefer the envelope closuresthat some pillowcases offer wherein there’s a little flap of fabric that covers the pillowinside.You’re not getting this pillow spillage orthe tag sticking out. The pillow cases I’m not crazy about. However, I am a very hot sleeper. One thing I’m noticing for sure is that theseare super cooling. They’re so cozy, but also so light and breathable. As I billow this top sheet over me, I canliterally feel the air flowing through the fabric. It’s actively serving to cool me down, which,like I said, is super important to me because I am a year-round hot sleeper.I have to say I consider these to be special. They bring something unique to the sheet game. I think they’d be a pretty good addition toanyone’s bedroom collection. There’s a lot to like about the Purple sheets,but just to name a few of my favorites. Bamboo-based bedding does have a reputation,like I said, for being naturally breathable, moisture-wicking, and cooling. I did find that to be the case with theseparticular sheets. As I was rolling around in bed, I was definitelyenjoying some cooling comfort which, like I said, is particularly important to hot sleeperslike myself. Something that I thought was special and uniqueabout these sheets is the way they flex with the Purple mattress.Now the stretchiness of these sheets combineswith the stretchiness of the hyper-elastic polymer inside the Purple mattress. It offers this all-embracing sink into thematerial. It makes me feel just totally immersed inPurple. If you are a Purple fan, I have to say thatthe Purple sheets and the Purple mattress complement each other very well. Now when I’m on the hunt for bedding or myself,I do prioritize easy wash care. I’m pleased to report that these sheets areboth machine washable and dryable. Just wash on a cold cycle, tumble dry on lowheat, and you’re good to go. There are a few things about these sheetsthat some folks might consider to be drawbacks. Firstly, like I said, they’re super lightand airy. They’re doing a great job of keeping me cool. If you’re a sleeper who likes sheets thatare a little more warm and cozy, you might want to find something that’s a little bitheavier in weight and, like I said, a little bit more warming.Because these are, like I said, very light,very breathable, and very cooling. Another thing, and this is totally a matterof personal preference, is that while I found the sheets to complement the Purple mattressso seamlessly, I can’t say the same thing for the Purple pillow. Like I said, this pillowcase in my opinionis just way too big for the Purple pillow. As you can see, it’s also very stretchy. The stretchiness combined with the size, itjust doesn’t look great in my opinion. From an aesthetic standpoint, not ideal. Of course, it does not detract from how supersoft and smooth it feels against your skin, which I love. I’m just not loving the way the pillowcaseslook on the pillow. They don’t look that great, in my opinion,on the standard size pillow either. There’s just a lot of baggy excess room. If you don’t have a king size pillow, you’rejust going to be working with a lot of extra fabric.Which brings me to my last point. Oftentimes, bedding brands will offer sleeperstrial periods wherein you have a month or sometimes more to test the bedding, see ifit’s the right fit for you. If it’s not, just send it on back for a refund. However, not only are there no trial periodsfor the Purple sheets, but there’s no returns either. Before you buy Purple sheets, you have tobe pretty positive that these are the ones for you. Well, that wraps up this review.[background music] Sarah: For every last detail on these sheets,be sure to check out my full written review that you can find by Googling SleepopolisPurple Sheets.
