Compared to cotton sheets, the best microfiber sheets are lightweight, less prone to wrinkles, and often softer to the touch. As a bonus, they're usually some of the least expensive sheets you can buy. If you've come around to buying microfiber sheets, join the club (I'm with you!). But, there are a few things to know before you buy.
With any sheets, you'll want to consider what your specific needs are before you buy. Obviously, your mattress size is one thing to consider, but you should also consider the height of your mattress. If you sleep on any mattress toppers (or if your mattress is thicker than 16 inches in height), you'll want to invest in a set of sheets with deep pockets. Be wary, most sheets advertise that they have deep pockets, and a lot of them don't live up to the hype. You'll have the most luck if you measure the specific height of your mattress and comb the reviews (I've got you covered on the latter).

And, since most people
don't change out their linens as often as they should, you may want to invest in a set with extra pillowcases. Doctors advise you to change your pillowcase as often as every week if you have acne-prone skin, and even if you don't you'll have to do laundry less frequently if you buy a six-piece set versus a four-piece set.
But, your new favorite bedding awaits. Keep scrolling to look at the best microfiber sheets.
1 The Overall Best, All Things Considered
Not only do these
microfiber sheets boast upwards of 200,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, but reviewers have literally written poems about them. So, to say they're beloved is an understatement. This four-piece set (with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases), comes in more than 40 colors and patterns, and seven sizes ranging from a twin to a split king. They're made of brushed microfiber polyester, which is soft to the touch and lightweight. They're also machine-washable and can fit mattresses up to 16 inches thick. But if all that doesn't convince you, these sheets come with a money-back guarantee, so you are really risking nothing with this purchase. Editor's note: I sleep on these sheets and they're lightweight, super soft to the touch, and never wrinkle! Plus they machine wash really well. — Amy Biggart According to one reviewer: “We have these sheets on multiple beds in our home. They are soft and have a great fit. Anytime we have had any type of spot they have washed up well. I love that there are so many different colors to choose from so we always can find something we like for each room.” Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king, split king (standard and extra deep pocket depths) Available colors and styles: 42 2 The Runner-Up
brushed microfiber sheets don't have as many reviews as the set above, but they’re still a strong choice with over 120,000 five-star reviews. Fans love these sheets for their ability to resist wrinkling (even right out of the package!) and the fact that they can accommodate mattresses 16 inches in height. They're offered in seven sizes and dozens of colors, so you'll be sure to find a set you like. According to one reviewer: “I am over the moon with these bed sheets. The Light Sage Green color is gorgeous and true to the pictures. I washed these as soon as I got them and they are definitely wrinkle-free. But what gets me is how unbelievably soft these are! I struggle to get out of bed even more now. Overall 10/10, I can’t wait to purchase in more colors!” Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king, split king Available colors: 45 3 The Best Value
For the best value, this
six-piece microfiber sheet set comes with four pillowcases in addition to your flat sheet and fitted sheet. It's also available in five sizes, and it has clocked nearly 53,000 (and counting) ratings on Amazon. Users praise this set as wrinkle-proof and lightweight. While these don't boast deep pockets like other sheets on this list, they'll accommodate standard mattresses that are less than 16 inches thick. According to one reviewer: “I must say the quality is better than expected, they wash and line dry very well and feel marvelous on the skin. Love that you get 4 pillow cases.” Available sizes: twin, full, queen, king, California king Available colors: 1 4 The Best With Deep Pockets
Unlike other supposedly "deep pocket" sheets that can't fit mattresses larger than 16 inches, these
microfiber sheets can accommodate mattresses between 18 and 21 inches thick. That means, for a truly deep mattress (or one with a very thick mattress topper), these are definitely the way to go. While some other sheets on this list have extra deep-pocket options (hint, hint, the overall best on this list), you’ll get a better value with this set than others on this list. This six-piece set comes with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and four pillowcases. You can also get it in one of 18 different colors and five sizes, to match your room. They're made with 100% microfiber, which means you can easily throw these in your washer and dryer. Best yet, they come with a one-year warranty, should you run into any issues down the line. According to one reviewer: “I’ve owned these sheets now for 6 years. I take them off wash them and put them back on. Very rarely do I use another set. These are so soft. No pills. Truly deep pockets never come off the mattress. 100% satisfied and then some. Getting another set!” Available sizes: twin, full, queen, king, California king Available colors: 18 5 The Best Microfiber Crib Sheets
For children making the transition from a single crib sheet, this
three-piece microfiber set includes a top sheet, fitted, sheet and pillowcase, and is lightweight and wrinkle resistant. These machine-washable sheets come in 15 different colors and are sized to fit a standard crib. Over 2,000 parents have tried out these best-selling microfiber sheets and given them a glowing, 4.8-star overall rating on Amazon. According to one reviewer: “These are so nice and soft. If I could get them for my bed I would! My son definitely sleeps good on them. They’re affordable but not cheap.” Available sizes: Standard crib size Available colors: 15 6 The Most Color Options
Available in 45 different colors and prints, these
cult-favorite microfiber sheets make it super easy to find a style that matches your bedroom and your taste. The double-brushed design is soft and silky to the touch, and won’t wrinkle no matter how much you kick them around in your sleep.

With prints ranging from the gray chevron pictured above to florals, to buffalo check, there’s a sheet style here for everyone. They’ve wracked up over 100,000 Amazon reviews and counting. And, if you’re dealing with thick mattresses, these also come in an “extra deep” option that has 21-inch pockets (the regular size has 16-inch pockets). According to one reviewer: “These sheets are amazing! They are super soft and have extra support on the fitted sheet so it doesn’t slip off the corner of your bed. I’ve washed them and they still feel soft. Love the color too! Definelty recommend.” Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, short queen, queen, king, California king, split king (standard and extra deep sizes) Available colors: 45 7 The Best Under $20
For the most affordable, basic set,
these microfiber sheets are just under $20 for a four-piece set, making them not only the most affordable on this list, but some of the most affordable sheets you can even find. These have 16-inch pockets, so they’ll be pretty middle-of-the-road when it comes to depth, and they also come in a bunch of styles, prints, and sizes. But, perhaps the most jaw-dropping fact about these sheets are the reviews, which are 300,000 strong and only growing. According to one reviewer: “Doubt you'll find more affordable microfiber sheets than these. They are soft and fit a deep mattress. Blue color is really nice. Basic but sometimes that's what you need.” Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king Available colors: 44 8 The Best With Lace Details
With a delicate trim, these
crochet lace sheets are a chic addition that really elevate a room when compared to your standard set of white sheets. These are wrinkle and stain-resistant, and have a 14-inch pocket for thinner mattresses. While the white sheet set pictured here is a classic that’ll work in most rooms, you can also choose one of the colorful lace trims, including a blue-trimmed or pink-trimmed sheet set. And, despite the delicate details, these sheets are machine washable for easy care. According to one reviewer: “These are the softest sheets I've ever slept on. The crochet pattern is a delightful touch to my bedroom. It's layered over the edge of the fabric, so there's less chance of something catching the lace pattern. Washes great - everything came out of the laundry looking exactly like the day I bought it.” Available sizes: twin, full, queen, king, California ing Available colors: 10 9 A Unique Print
