Shopping for sheets isn’t the easiest thing in the world. Good quality sheets are typically expensive, and they can feel one way in the store and very different after a wash. Luckily, these 100 percent Egyptian cotton sheets have garnered more than 13,000 perfect five-star reviews — for everything from being incredibly soft to not shrinking and wearing well night after night.

And for only a few more hours, they’re $55 for a king set — that’s 43 percent off their list price of $96!

Made of a luscious sateen weave, these sheets are 800-thread count. What’s thread count, you say? It’s the number of threads that are woven into one square inch of fabric. Lots of people pay up for 1,000-thread count sheets, thinking the higher the thread count, the higher the quality.

But quality really comes down to the actual fiber — and these are made of long-staple cotton, which is the best kind. Staple refers to how long the cotton fiber is; the longer the fiber, the softer, stronger and lighter-weight the fabric feels. And this set feels amazing and wears well, as reviewers attest.

Thanks to deep pockets, these sheets fit mattresses up to 18 inches thick. So they’re perfect for pillow-tops.

Sweaty sleeper? The breathable fabric is designed to wick away moisture, keeping you cool and dry. The set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases. Available in a wide range of colors.

"They are genuinely soft. And I'm obsessed with soft," a five-star fan said. "So not soft kind-of, but legitimately soft and sateen feeling. The color is rich and vibrant. And the sheets have a nice thick, hotel feeling (but not super thick; I'd say medium thick). I live in SoCal so if t,hey were too thick I'd probably sweat to death. The pockets are very deep and engulf my 13" memory foam mattress. It stays cool, keeps warm and feels like heaven. From somebody who searched high and low for soft, hotel-like sheets I can say these are it."

 Sweet dreams indeed!
