Sleep Number ® In Balance ™ Sheets
Obviously need more research???
We just purchased our third set of "in Balance" sheets/pillow cases in four years. We very much like the temperature situation with warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. However, the bottom sheet of two prior sets wore large holes and now wondering what to do with the good flat sheets and pillowcases that have much more life in them. My husband and I believe the price is much too inflated for the life of the bottom sheet. I would hope that we wouldn't have to do a pedicure every time we get into bed so the fitted sheet would last longer. Calluses maybe the problem stated our sales rep but question that in our use. Sure would like to purchase new bottom sheets only.

Bottom Sheet Rips with 2 huge holes
We were very excited to try these sheets out with our top of the line sleep number bed that we recently purchased. We made sure to follow all the instructions for care and cleaning; however, the sheets appear to be poor quality and do not hold up very well. The bottom sheet ripped in 2 large locations. The idea is great; but, the sheets don't appear to be of high quality.

Sheet does not last
Sleep number has a great idea and a great bed. Too bad they cannot make accessories to match. I have bought two different sets of sheets in two years and both sets have not held up. The bottom sheet is torn on both of them. If I could buy a separate fitted sheet, I probably would not complain even though the wear for the price is TOTALLY unacceptable. I love the elastic straps that keep them in place and would love to say they are great but the tearing is a problem that I cannot fix without buying an entire set and having spares. The pillowcases are fine, the top sheets are fine, the bottom sheets are gone

Sheet ripping after 14 months!
Had problems with sleeping hot. These sheets were recommended by a gentleman in the store. We bought two pairs. I have only used the one set so far. I have followed the washing instructions to a "T" and can't believe that the bottom fitted sheet has worn and is ripping. Very disappointed as these sheets were the most expensive bedding I have ever bought.
I still have a lot less expensive sheets from the '90's that are still good that I still use today.
The feel of these sheets are great, however I would never spend the money on something that won't last through the years. They just aren't worth the price.

Durability and wear concerns
After the initial purchase, I was very pleased with the InBalance bedding. It did seem to be more breathable than typical cotton bed linens. I was very pleased with smoothness and softness of the fabric.
I'm not sure what the expected wear life should be on these. I bought them about 9 months ago, April of 2014. By November of 2014, the fitted sheet had begun to tear; the elastic surround was slowly tearing from the sheet itself, despite extreme care to avoid putting undo pressure on it.
By December of 2014 (8 months after purchase), the sheets seemed to begin shrinking suddenly. I had not changed anything about my laundry routine - same machine, soap, temperature settings. But the fitted sheet causes the SleepNumber bed to fold up like a taco for an hour until it stretches back out. The flat sheet is even worse. Length has remained the same, but width has shrunk to the point where it no longer can extend over the sides of the bed. Visually, it looks like a Queen sized flat sheet on a King bed.
Of course, some wear and shrinkage is to be expected. But this seemed premature. Given the premium price of the InBalance line, I was expected to get at least a full year of use from them.

Great at keeping us cool!
I bought these sheets two years ago and they have made a noticeable improvement in our sleep quality. My husband sleeps very hot and often has difficulty falling asleep because he can't cool down. Once we got these sheets, we both noticed an immediate difference. He was able to fall asleep more quickly and stay asleep for longer periods of time. He doesn't wake up in the morning drenched in sweat! We used these sheets continuously for two years, washing them weekly, and they have only just worn out. We immediately repurchased because I don't know if we'll ever find another set of sheets that we can agree on, or that makes such a difference in our sleep quality!

Comfortable but poor quality
I purchased Flex top King Sleep Number Bed 6 months ago, and also purchased the Temp Balancing Sheets, only to find they didn't come with pillow cases, truly the MOST expensive sheets I have ever owned.
I loved the feel of the sheets, but after only 2 washings, the center area of the sheet started coming apart. Very disappointing. There must be issues with the manufacturing of the sheets, because both bottom fitted sheets have holes now.

Purchased a Split King SN Bed a few months ago, also purchased a set of the split king sheets... after first wash they are coming apart where the two tops split/meet. CANNOT BELIEVE $350 Sheet Set would only last 1 wash. NOT IMPRESSED... NOT WHEN YOU SPEND THAT KIND OF $$$ We love our bed, just not the quality or cost off sheets for it.
