How to Build Your Dream Bed

Craving a better night's sleep? A few small changes can make a world of difference. We've rounded up four bedding essentials, from plush mattress toppers to memory-foam pillows, that will ensure a blissful slumber.

Start with a Strong Foundation

Don't give up on your old mattress just yet; invest in a plush topper instead. A mattress topper offers all the extra cushion you need -- and for just a fraction of the cost. Our 3-inch memory foam mattress topper, available at Macy's, molds perfectly to your body shape, adding an extra layer of depth and support.

Think About Thread Count

When shopping for sheets, it's important to consider thread count, a measure of how many threads are woven together in a square inch. We recommend investing in 360-thread-count sheets for exquisite comfort and softness. Approach higher-thread-count claims with wariness, though; a recent Consumer Reports study found that thread counts advertised as greater than 400 rarely yield additional softness, only a higher price tag.

Put Your Pillow to Work

Your pillow should do more than elevate your head. Pillows made of memory foam contour to the shape of your head and neck, providing greater support and comfort while you sleep.

Breathe Easy

For those with allergies to down or feathers, pillows with hypoallergenic fill can be a way to breathe easier at night. Their synthetic polyester fill mimics the softness of down but won't aggravate irritating allergic symptoms.
