    Satin sheets are the easiest to move around on. Knit sheets are the best for your skin.

        I use satin. Chicks dig it and they feel really good and stay cool if your a hot sleeper. I find it really easy to slide around and push off my headboard if I need to scoot down.

          Do you mean scoot?? No, they are not as easy. Satin is easiest to slide across.

              Flannel ... good for those always cold too.

                +1 for flannel, I find satin a bit too slippery (personal taste). It also seems to be the least uncomfortable when I wake up in a pool of sweat from night terrors.

                I like to buy a top sheet one size larger than the mattress (I have a queen, use a queen fitted and a king top) It gives me and my wife more coverage especially when I am restless in my sleep.

                  satin for slide, flannel top sheet for warmth
                  you also might not want to tuck the top sheet under, messy look but get a larger duvet cover as sometimes when you slide the sheet gets stuck as it's secured to the mattress

                    We use knit/flannel "t-shirt" sheets b/c my wife likes them. I've found that the mattress type makes more of a difference in ease of moving around. We have a BeautyRest mattress now w/ a memory foam top layer & I sink into it more, which requires a bit more effort to move on.

                    I'll get around to trying these some day: http://www.sheex.com/

                          I agree that the mattress means as much as the sheets. For bed mobility, a high thread count cotton or satin sheet (not synthetic) are best as long as they are tight on the mattress. Baggy sheets suck. Too much effort is expended to move the sheet before the body goes anywhere.

                          The best mattress we found (he tried all of them) was from the Mattress Warehouse. They reinforce the side edges so that there is more stability for transfers. --eak

                            Oh dear, I just thought of the worst possible setup - a waterbed. *shudder*

                              Satin is old school, though I agree it may be a decent option.

                              John, in case you missed the link, I think the Sheex brand of sheets has potential. It's basically athletic wear fabric (think under armour, etc).

                              Yeah, the edges are one reason we went w/ a BeautyRest and not a 100% memory foam mattress like TempurPedic.
