Between the official arrival of summer and being 9-months pregnant, I’ve been pretty warm when I sleep. I’d like to open half the windows in our room every night, but my husband doesn’t seem to share my sentiments. So I was thrilled when I had the chance to check out the In Balance sheet set from Select Comfort. You may know Select Comfort for their Sleep Number beds, but they also make a wide variety of other bed products including pillows, sheets, blankets, mattress pads and more.

The In Balance sheets are constructed out of a 50/50 blend of cotton and Outlast Adaptive Comfort Viscose fiber that combine to help balance out temperature swings. The Outlast fabric adapts to your changing thermal needs by absorbing body heat when too much is created and releasing that heat back to you when you are cold. Pretty smart sheets.

And they work! I’ve had a number of nights sleeping on them and have noticed I’m not throwing my sheets and blankets on and off throughout the night as I get too hot and then too cold. I’ll admit I don’t exactly understand how the fabric technology all works, but I know I’m getting more restful sleep – and at 9 months pregnant, that’s something I’ll welcome with open arms.

Other features of the In Balance sheets:

350 thread count

SmartFit (patented fitted sheet that guarantees no-slip and a smooth sleep surface)

Extra-deep pocket fits beds up to 18 inches

Logic Label system takes the guesswork out of where to start making your bed.

Set includes 1 flat sheet and 1 fitted sheet

Available in white, sand, sage and sea blue

Machine washable

Though the set usually retails for $169.99 – $219.99 depending on size, right now the sheets are on sale for $159.99 – $199.99. Even better, Select Comfort wants to give one lucky MWS reader a set of In Balance sheets in the size and color of their choice.

    My biggest sleep woe is that my husband snores and makes it hard for me to sleep.

  2. Theresa D says

    I Select Comfort on Facebook.

  3. Reginald S says

    I work nights so it’s tough to sleep during the day when the kids are outside playing. I can’t wear earplugs because they tend to fallout and let the noise in.

  4. Holly C. says

    I’m going through menopause, and the night sweats are awful, I get up several times a night and walk around just to cool off. I had no idea that someone made sheets that could keep me cool at night!

  5. Holly C. says

    fan of sleep number on fb!

  6. Mellissa C says

    My husband always shakes his leg at night ,it is so annoying

  7. Me and my husband both have a problem with snoring. I always have to wake him up in the night to ask him to sleep on his side rathr than his stomack.

  8. Valeen N says

    Oh where do I start? My wonderful husband has terrible sleep apnea and in addition to the horrible snoring, will stop breathing at night. Couple that with living in a really hot climate and a child with special needs who has night terrors…. let’s just say it’s been a long time since I’v had a good night’s sleep.

  9. I run on the cold side. I love to be cold when I sleep. My husband would LOVE these as they would probably keep him warmer.

  10. My biggest sleep woe is not having the right pillow!

  11. I have a hard time falling asleep right now because I’m a college student and cannot stop stressing about school work.

  12. My biggest sleep problem right now is staying cool enough in an upstairs bedroom when it’s nearly 100 outside. These sheets might help.

  13. Angela Winesburg says

    My husband snores in his sleep and it sometimes wakes me up, that is my biggest sleep woe, thanks for the chance!

  14. Amanda D. says

    My biggest sleep woe right now is that I am completely off any kind of normal sleep schedule. I’m a teacher, and not having to work during the summer. Somehow I’ve gotten my days and nights mixed up.

  15. Charlotte V says

    I flip and flop and if I am not cold, I am hot!

    Thank you for this wonderful contest

  16. Sue Farrell says

    Hot flashes are my problem—plus a hubby that snores, but only some of the time.

  17. My present sleep woes are that its too hot this summer which makes us sweaty and sticky and uncomfortable… that goes for our 7 month old too, so he wakes up and cries at least a few times per night. My hubby’s back is bad now too, so he tosses and turns and wakes me up alot too. I probably get about 2 hours of actual sleep per night right now and you can definitely tell by looking at me 🙁

  18. not very well air conditioned bedroom makes me toss around

  19. My husband snores(I do too!) and good sleep is hard to come by.

  21. Getting comfortable or getting too hot.

  22. My hubby is a horrible snorer to the point where I sometimes have to kick him out (of the room).

  23. Jill Myrick says

    My biggest sleep woe is insomnia.
    No matter how early or how late i try to go to bed or how much I try to do in a days time to get tired I will still toss and turn for hours.
    So I normally only sleep an average of four hours per night.
    Thank you so much for the giveaway.

  26. Melissa B. says

  29. Ron Miller says

    biggest sleep woe; can’t seem to string 8 hours of sleep together, I’ll get 4 or 5 overnite then another 2-3 during the day.

  31. My biggest sleep woe is that I have a hard time getting comfy in bed. I’m like the princess and the pea. The sheets have to be just right. I also love the higher thread count because they are smoother.

  32. Pure Insomnia! I can’t sleep because my brain randomly says “Get up!”
    and I go to look at the clock; it reads 2am…oh man

  36. Kayte CookWatts says

    My man snores and he thinks he doesn’t like blankets in the summer. But in the middle of the night-who do you think wakes up with no covers because someone is hogging them?lol

  37. Kayte CookWatts says

    FB fan too. Kayte CookWatts

  38. Arthritis runs in my family and I notice it most at night when I sleep on my side. These sheets sound great and comfortable. Thanks!

  39. Mimi the kitten says

    I’m the world’s lightest sleeper; if dust blows across the window sill, I am wide awake. Combine that with the fact that I have two beloved cats who like to tap-dance in my hair all night. 🙂

  40. Mimi the kitten says

    I also “like” Sleep Number on Facebook (Angela Townsend).

  41. My husband has insomnia which means that I have a lot of trouble sleeping too!!

  42. Lucy Schwartz says

    My biggest sleep problem is that I tend to be cold and my husband likes the window open “just a little even in winter” . These sheets sound perfect for us. What is interesting is that I used to be a hot mama but not anymore.

  43. Amanda S. says

    I sleep with a snorer!

  44. Vicki Andrew says
