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.

I 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 the SlumberCloud 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.

You can purchase Sheex through Amazon.

Since this review came out, Purple now has their own line of sheets at a very competitive price. Their queen set is currently on sale for $114. You can get the full Purple Sheets Review Here.

    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 !

    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?

  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.

    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.

    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.
