Sheets are one of those things that you need, but are SO not exciting to buy. It’s like how I have a mental block against spending money to buy a wallet…to put my money in.
Plus, I’ve been burned SO many times. How many times have you shelled out the big $$$ for “300 thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets” only to find out that they’re rougher than your cheap cotton sheets from Target, and ripped in half the time? This has happened to me many times, with the result that I’ve needed sheets but just can’t put myself through the exhaustion and inevitable disappointment of going to Bed, Bath & Beyond and buying some.
So when I discovered Vaulia, I decided to manage my expectations. Sure, the company boasts that their products “make a house a home,” and that the sheets provide “ultimate comfort,” but these are usually just buzzwords.
In this case, though, I was pleasantly surprised! My Vaulia sheets are SO soft. They’re made of 100% polyester microfiber with an 85GSM fabric. I had to Google “GSM” to find out what this means. It refers to the “grams per square meter,” which is a measure of density similar to thread count. 85GSM is considered luxury!
The fitted sheet fits my queen-sized mattress perfectly (you’d be surprised how many fitted sheets are too small for the mattress and end up popping off in the middle of the night! Like, don’t you measure??!!!). The sheet set also comes with two standard pillowcases. It does NOT come with the flat sheet. In my case, I’m perfectly fine using my navy flat sheet from a previous bedding set, mixing and matching the colors.
I chose dark gray sheets, and they’re a beautiful color. The color and the texture of the sheets make them look WAY more expensive than they are – always a bonus in my book.
And if you’re challenged at making a bed like I am, they even have a handy dandy infographic that shows you how:.
