Kitelinens Sleep Stories: Deanne

Sleep needs are highly variable across ages, genders and lifestyles. When we designed Kitelinens Stay-Tucked Sheets, we set out to create the most comfortable cotton sheets for all types of people, no matter what sleep preferences you have. What type of sleeper are you? What are your sleep preferences, must-haves and must-NOT-haves? While the answers can be vastly different from person to person, you might be surprised that many people have the same quirks and specific preferences in common. 

With this in mind, we started reaching out to Kitelinens customers to see what they’d share about their sleep life and how Kitelinens helps. Our Sleep Stories series features interviews with real users of Kitelinens Stay-Tucked Sheets and their testimonials about how Kitelinens premium cotton bed sheets improved their bedtime and wake-up routines.


Kitelinens customer Deanne, based in Ogden, Utah found Kitelinens online while searching for a top sheet with gusset.  A gusset is a piece of material sewn into a garment to strengthen or enlarge a part of it and helps to reinforce its seams. As a very busy grandmother with four married children and nine grandkids as well as the owner of two businesses (a construction company & a cabinet company!), Deanne needed a reliable sheet set that doesn’t rip, stays tucked and cuts back on the time it takes her to make her bed every morning. Read our full interview with Deanne to find out more about why she chose Kitelinens.
