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.

  2. My son likes to wake up in the middle of the night and find a spot right next to me, he is a kicker and a mover! And now hes getting so big for me to carry back to his room in my sleepy stumber!

  3. I like sleep number on FB Rylee A

  4. Jennifer R says

    My biggest sleep issue is always being too hot right now….

  5. Angela MacLearn says

    These sheets sound amazing, I would LOVE to try them out!

  6. I have Scholiosis, so finding a good position for my back is my biggest sleep woe.

  7. My biggest sleep woe right now is that I’m recovering from a back injury and have to constantly shift my position to ease the pain and discomfort — it’s become pretty annoying and disruptive, to say the least!

  8. I’m a fan of Select Comfort on facebook: Geoff K

  9. Right now it is the animals that are my sleep woe–both the dog and the cat are on my bed, and they can sometimes start wandering, which always wakes me up. But it is worse to try to keep them out (especially the dog) since the whining is even worse!

  10. New dog, old cats. Lots of racket.

  11. Tim Hughes says

    My wife is a snorer with sleep apnea so any help would be awesome!

  13. I do not snore, but my partner does!

  14. Sonya Allstun says

    Hubby rocks the walls he snores so loud. Then on top of that I get terrible hot flashes. Between the 2 sometimes I wish someone would knock me out to get some sleep LOL.

  15. Sonya Allstun says

    I added Select Comfort as my friend on facebook and my username is same as the name I used to enter this with (Sonya A.)

  16. Stephanie Adkins says

    My new hubbie is a snorer. I love him very much but I need to get some sleep.

  17. I sleep with a nursing toddler and a preschooler who doesn’t want his sister touching him. 🙂 My husband also snores but that is the least of my problems!

  18. I am a fan of Sleep Number on FB.

  19. Nicole L. says

    Right now I have a few sleep issues. My husband occasionally snores (not all the time). I have a seven week old son so I’m up and down all night. I have two cats who try to get our attention at night since we have been ignoring them in favor of the baby. And my husband prefers to sleep covered in pillows instead of blankets. If one of them falls off of him during the night I’m in danger of having my pillow swiped from directly under my head.

  20. Our uncomfortable mattress is my biggest sleep woe – we both toss and turn all night because whichever side we’re laying on soon falls asleep.

  21. I have many sleep woes! Bad back, currently pregnant, and my husband and cat are bed hogs!

  22. i sleep with a devoted BLANKET HOG! so, i’m always cold! I also have chronic back pain which can make sleeping a bit challenging.

  23. I’m the snorer, so I feel bad for my bf!

  24. Hard to find a comfy position.

  25. Nicole Greene says

    My biggest sleep woe is both my back hurting and my hubby’s obnoxious snoring!

  26. Nicole Greene says

    I “LIKE” Sleep Number on Facebook (Nicole Pitts)

  27. Chrystal says

    My biggest sleep woe is my aching back. I have really bad upper back pain sometimes, and it keeps me awake.

  28. I burst out laughing when I saw the question about snoring. YES. YES. My husband snores. He has had operations and all kinds of things.

  30. carol y l says

    My biggest problem is not being able to use much A/C because we have no work, so it is hot. Plus, we have a small bed and hubby is tall!

    My husband went had a liver transplant several months ago and sleep never seems to come easy or for more than a few hours at a time

  33. I sleep with a snorer and I always wake up hot. Double trouble.

  34. My husband’s in the Navy and currently deployed. Since he’s on a sub I can’t talk to him except through occasional emails. It takes me forever to fall asleep because I’m always thinking about him.

  35. I can’t sleep because of thoughts popping into my head while I’m trying to drift off.

  44. Joanne Schultz says

    My biggest sleep woe is that my house is hot, no a/c. I sleep with a small fan on, but I end up tossing and turning most of the night! So I’m suffering from lack of sleep!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. Thanks for the giveaway…I always have trouble sleeping when the weather get hot here in the Desert Southwest; I can never seem to get the temperature right, it’s either too hot or too cold with the a/c and/or using a fan to get more airflow !

  46. My biggest sleep woe is that the slightest sound wakes me up!

  47. I need a very cold room, otherwise I toss and turn all night.

  48. My oldest cat, Wicket, likes to wake me up in the middle of the night for a snack. He’s training our youngest, Petra, to follow in his footsteps, too, They’re my biggest interruption to a good night’s sleep.

  49. Right now my biggest sleep woe is having two of the three of my kids trying to climb in bed with my husband and I on a nightly basis.
