Time for a good night's sleep! Review

One thing I cannot stand is to not be comfortable when sleeping.  We recently purchased a new bed and that has helped with getting a good night's rest but a good mattress alone is not the complete solution.  Recently I was asked to review Novosbed Pima Cotton sheets and coincidentally I was also asked to review Reverie Pillows.

Novosbed Pima Cotton sheets
We like to keep two sheet sets on hand - when we change the sheets we have a clean set ready to make the bed up with.  Recently the fitted sheet on my preferred set ripped and I planned to purchase a new set.  When the opportunity for review came up I jumped on it.

These are absolutely the BEST sheets I have ever used.  Have you ever gone to a luxury hotel and after a great night's sleep wondered where they found their fabulous sheets?  This is what that the Novosbed Pima Cotton sheets reminded me of.

I was able to review the King sized sheets in brown.  The color was great - not too dark and not too light. The sheets fabric is heavy weight, but soft and silky with a high thread count.  Even though the weight is heavier, it was completely comfortable to sleep in, even in summer.  My husband does not usually say a whole lot about products I review but he has commented several times on how much he prefers these to the Novosbed Pima Cotton Sheets to what we were using before.

Here are some highlights:
- 100% Pima Cotton
- 600 thread count
- Silky soft and ultra comfortable

Each set includes 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, 2 pillowcases

Why Pima cotton?  From the Novosbed website:
 "Pima cotton is an extra long-staple cotton, which is an indicator of quality and longevity. It typically has a staple of at least 1 3/8″ or longer, guaranteeing the cotton’s excellent durability and long product lifespan. Pima cotton is 100% USA-grown, coming from areas such as Arizona, California, Texas, and New Mexico. Novosbed’s pima sheet sets are guaranteed to last for years, maintaining their soft feel and velvety sateen weave"

These sheets are a little bit more on the pricey side but worth the investment ($159 USD for a Queen set and $179 USD for a King set).

Reverie Sweet Slumber Pillows
I actually started using these pillows before I reviewed the sheets.  Again, the request for a review came at a perfect time.... my pillows had flattened quite a bit and even with 2 - 3 pillows, I was waking up with neck pain.  1-  2 was not enough support but 3 gave too much lift.

The Reverie Sweet Slumber Pillow was the perfect amount of thickness and it was easy to fluff the pillow to my personal comfort level.   I have not been waking up in the morning with my usual stiff neck and I am waking up less throughout the night.

What I liked most is that because the fillers are shredded latex vs. fiber fill, foam or down, the pillow retains it's shape.   One thing I will note is that the latex scent did bother me when I would first lay down.   Ironically when I started using the Novosbed pima pillowcase, the fabric was woven tight enough that I could no longer detect the scent.   If you are someone that finds it difficult to get comfortable at night, this may be a great solution for you.

I would not recommend it to anyone with a latex sensitivity or allergy but for most this may be the solution you have been looking for.  I have been using the pillow a couple of months and it looks the same as it did the day I received it.


If you are looking for a better night's sleep, new bedding may be the solution!    Thank you to Novosbed and Reverie for the review opportunities.
