Sheex are performance sheets that feel and look like something you would wear for a jog or trip to the gym. They have the same feel as Under Armor garments. In fact, the company was started by two coaches from the University of South Carolina who really liked how performance clothing felt and wanted to make sheets out of it.

Sheex are a great idea and help alleviate a common problem among many sleepers which is sleeping too hot. Sheex do a good job of keeping you cool. They are more breathable than traditional cotton and also wick away moisture.

Here’s a picture of the sheex out of the packaging.

sheex reviewI have been rotating sheex in with other sheet sets between washes and so far they have been great. A set of Sheex will get you a fitted sheet, top sheet and two pillowcases. They have a very smooth feel and they stretch out over your bed so there are no wrinkles. The fitted sheet has a very well made elastic band which keeps them in place and you won’t have to worry about it coming loose.

Sheex are a great sheet for hot sleepers. However, I don’t really have that problem except in the summer and even then it’s only for a few of the hottest weeks in July and August. So for me they are a great summer sheet.

One thing to note is that if you have rough skin you may feel the sheets snagging against your skin every not and then. I noticed this slightly when I slept on them but it wasn’t overly concerning.

Sheex is a great buy for people looking to sleep cooler and dryer throughout the night. However make sure you also have a mattress pad/protector that also has cooling properties, otherwise, all that heat will get trapped in the mattress pad. I recommend this mattress pad for additional cooling.

I also noticed that when I washed them for the first 3 washes that the colors bled. I purchased a darker color sheet and found that I had to rewash the other garments that I washed along with the Sheex so don’t make that mistake the first time!

A set of queen size Sheex will run about $179 so they certainly aren’t cheap but they are durable and very well made so should last a while.

Sheex Review Update 2019

Since I wrote this post years ago, many new brands have come to market. One that I particularly like in the performance category is Molecule.

Similar to Sheex, the Molecule sheets are ultra breathable and have a silky feel but they are a tencel fiber and cotton blend. This means to you get great breathability with a more familiar feel. These aren’t cheap either though as a queen set will run about $200. Check out my full Molecule Sheets review here.

A Budget Alternative to Sheex

mellani sheets review

If you want to get something similar in feel although not as stretchy or substantial, check out the Mellani Bed Sheet set on Amazon. They are a microfiber set and will less than $25 for a queen set!

    I’m so in love with these sheets! I purchased every thing on my bed from this brand even the pillows. My friends think I’m nuts for spending so much money on bedding but I sleep in a cloud !

      I hated these sheets. If your feet had any rough spots you heard them shrieking anywhere you moved. I never felt that they ever kept me cooler. Boy do I sweat. I gave
      away two sets and wished them luck. The
      ONLY sheets that I find
      help with night sweats
      are bamboo sheets.
      DREAM-FIT sheets
      even have elastic to
      keep them on your
      mattress. They are more expensive then Sheeks but worth every dime. If I have spill water accidentally it’s hard to believe 10 minutes later it’s dry. I’m sure regular good quality bamboo sheets are all great but do some research about softness. These are to die for soft. Sorry Sheeks, you suck!

        The materials are great, they do keep you cool, but they are pricey and if you are like many men and women, if you have any roughness on your feet or hands, they are HORRIBLE!! I will not buy again. Try Cosy House…much cheaper and much more body friendly!!

        Hello, I purchased a set and I felt they were okay. I was sweating and it felt just like cotton. For the price of $170.00 I can easily buy a better set at local stores. Being a road warrior staying in many hotels, these sheets lack quality and they are overpriced. I returned them after a few nights and contacted their customer service (856 area code) a few times to get my refund. When you called, you do not get to speak to a live representative but had to leave a message which it was promised to be return within 24 hours, called back a few times because the return is time sensitive and finally called me back within 48 hours. They sent a return label which was nice.

    These sheets are the best sheets I have ever owned. I have washed them many times and still they fit on my bed without any shrinkage. I was able to find them at an extremely great price, and wish I had bought more at that time because finding them now they are over $180.00. I so wish I could find more at a reasonable price.

  3. NO SHEEX !!!!!! UGH!
    I’m the real live ‘princess and the pea’, sad to admit. Super picky about my bed things. Sheets to pillow.
    All you need is ONE set of sheets per bed. Off bed, into washer, your bed airs out for the day, dry sheets and bedthings back on at night. Never have to fold a sheet. Or pillowcase.
    I myself do have FOUR sets of Heavenly cotton sheets. Three in a king, though I have a queen bed now. Better too big than to small. Why four? I got them nearly free. The way to know the best sheets is after several washer trips. (And I prefer my front loader.)
    That means you either have to take your chances at BB&Beyond accepting a well used return or two or more.
    Or…. like I do. I feel for them at thrift stores. Feel. It’s the way to know. I have invested nearly nothing and have sheets and a non-down comforter and I take a set with me when traveling. There is nothing like them.
    All cotton. Heavy weave bottom sheet, light top.
    I don’t need the latest expensive vehicle…but I do need my bedthings perfect.
    P.S. Linen, high quality cotton, heavy silk, and woven material only.
    No knits. No synthetics.

      Your headline indicated that you hated SHEEX sheets, but your comment had nothing to say about them. Why are you wasting everyone’s time? And delibertally negatively impacting the overall rating?

    2. I totally agree with your review. I love good cotton sheets. Those poly spandex sheets are not comfy. They’re not cool. They trap heat. Cotton does not. I’ll stick to my good cotton sheets. No polyester for me.

      1. ah, more cotton fans like me. I can not wear nor sleep in polyester, I hate the stuff. Have since it 1st came out, our family are cotton only wearers. It’s so hard to buy clothes etc… 1st I check the material, then the price. Even blends are not good. Polyester, to me feels like spun glass, Remember that pink insulation? With all the new names of materials it’s often difficult to figure out what things are made from. Even furniture, hats, scarves, socks slip covers, towels, etc….. Curtains is about the only thing I can buy that is polyester, since I really do not have much contact with them.

    3. I’m with you on cotton high quality sheets. No polyester. I like more of a crisp feel when they’re just washed. I wonder if they pill after a while, like so much of this poly?

  4. Sounds like high filament polyester? Or maybe rayon .
    If polyester I question whether it wicks. Rayon could be ok. Cotton is the best. Price appears high
    Good sheets at Costco at a very fair price. Love the way no one mentions fiber and count.

      I cannot believe the sheez are so expensive. I would never spend that, it’s bad enough I spent 60.00 for the my pillow which I think is a hunk of junk. I know 2 people already that threw them away, I don’t know how this guy gets away with selling this crap at such high prices!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cotton is always the way to go for me!

    Well, I took the bait and ordered a set of the cooling sheets. Very disappointed! Feel cool for the first minute or so, but then warmed to meet my body temperature. Even the pillow cases disappointed – woke this morning to almost wet hair and body. Thankfully, got a good discount so not too much money wasted.

    Just tried them for the first time last night. Not all that impressed. They are made of polyester and spandex. Polyester is a type of plastic that doesn’t breathe well and they have a tendency to get too hot. The spandex gets too stretchy which makes them hard to pull around or up to your shoulders. If you move around a lot at night, they get all over the place and tangled. Also if you have any rough parts on your skin they will catch and snag in that area. My wife complains they catch on her finger and toe nails. Stick with a high thread count soft Egyption cotton. They’re really the best way to go.

      I’m with you on this! My sheets do not fit properly, they hang unevenly (both fitted and flat). they are extremely slippery and cause me to waken to readjust during the night. My cat won’t even sleep on them! Joke’s on me I guess!

    Hello, I have the Sheex performance duvet cover and duvet, and the Sheex Dri release sheets, and the eco pillow and performance pillow.. I will say it was all very expensive but sometimes I’m too lazy to wash the duvet and cover so we won’t use it for a month or so.. but you wash it and put it back on and make the bed and it’s amazing.. I spent almost a grand on this and it hasn’t disappointed ever.. very durable and I have an older washer that’s tough on clothes. The performance Sheex is super soft and is really nice looking.. the dri release material is definitely different, more like a under armor t shirt than a sports material. Sheex are definitely worth it.

    I tried these but not nearly as soft or cool as my bamboo sheets which do keep me cool and dry and after 3 yrs have held up wonderfully. I sleep ‘au natural’ and felt like I was on rayon gym shorts.

  9. Have NOT tried these sheets, but it sounds like Peachskin Sheets (out of Georgia–naturally) might give Sheex a run for their money. They are made out of an “athletic” fiber, 1500 thread count designed to keep cool, and they are the softest sheets on which I’ve ever slept and at $55.00/set any size IF you get the color(s) of the month. If not, they are $79.95. I recently purchased some all cotton Red Land Cotton sheets–total USA made–but have not as yet put them on my bed. I’ll let ya know how they do.

    I’m so sorry I fell for the marketing and advertising of these Sheez Sheets. They feel just like the nylon nightgowns my mother wore in the 1950’s!
    Not Comfortable
    Not Cooling
    They feel cold when you get into bed but do not cool you. If you have anything rough on your feet, hands or even your pajamas, the sheets catch and pull. The spandex makes them stretchy – something good in clothing – but not sheets. When you turn over they stretch and tangle around you.
    I’m sending these back so I’ll see if they stand by the “try these for 30 days”.
    This company is spending millions for advertising. Their product is awful but people believe the advertising. I did. Never again.

    I hated these sheets. They feel as if I am sleeping on two thin pieces of rubber. They slide all over the bed and I would wake up trying to adjust them. They are going back tomorrow. The part people are stating about your feet seeming to catch on the fibers is absolutely true and I have smooth feet.

    I agree with Bobbi. My husband got me Sheez Sheets for Christmas and I didn’t
    have the heart to tell him I didn’t like them.
    I get hot at night off and on and when you try to turn on your side they bunch up around your feet and slide all over the place. They feel great when you wrap them around your face but that’s about it. I don’t understand how they can cool you when they are made of polyester. Polyester makes you hot.
    Anyway, my sheets also have picks on them from fingernails.
    The only strong point about them is that they fit very well around the mattress but they slide around so you have to keep pulling them down to fit. Very uncomfortable. I’m not using them any more. Only had them on the bed since Christmas several times.

    These sheets are ridiculous! A total waste of money. The are ill-fitting and sleeping in them is a nightmare! It’s a struggle to get up and out of the bed and they slide all over. It’s like fighting with the beast that keeps holding you back. I try to get up and my feet don’t follow because they are all caught up in the sheets. The pillow cases don’t stay in place and constantly slide off.

    Soft-yes, but comfy-NO!

    I will stick to cotton. 😀

    Without a doubt these are the best sheets ever! I have had mine for over two years and they are like new. The black has not faded and they still sleep cool. You wash in cold water with no fabric softener at all so fibers stay open. Dry so fast and back on bed. No wrinkles ever nor do they stretch out of shape. Don’t know why others have this problem unless they aren’t caring for them as instructed. Everyone who has slept in my guest room goes and buys the sheets. I should get a commission as to how many I have sold by recommendation.

    I Love these Sheex! I wake up and bottom sheet doesn’t even look like it’s been slept on. It stays smooth. I also had issue with sweating at nite..but then took off blanket I had on top of Sheex top Sheex and I stayed cool and non sweaty. I also don’t tuck top sheet in.. maybe that’s why I don’t get “stuck” in them! How silly that is! You get stuck in any sheets tucked in! I slide right out and remake my bed with my wrinkle free, smooth soft Sheex!!

    Product is as promised. It is soft, kind of like silk. Made of the same fabric that gym shorts are made from. It’s not new – it’s called nylon/polyester. So would you want your pajamas made from it? If not, then why was I thinking that nylon sheets would be great? There’s a good reason they never name the fabric in their ads. On the plus side, I do love the way the elastic waistband holds the fitted sheet to my mattress. On the negative, if you’ve already ordered good luck trying to return the item. Their customer service is just an answering machine. The bigger problem is that they shipped me (and charged my credit card) for additional merchandise I did not want. (When you select the sheets you want, they ask for your credit card. After approving the charge for the sheets, they ask you if you’d like a discount on pillows, second sheet sets, etc. If you reply yes to anything, they automatically charge your card with out even telling you the cost ($$$) until after the fact. I immediately requested a correction and they said it was too late. So my $149 sheet set ended up costing my over $300. )

    Pros: Soft.
