Have you ever wished your bed felt as comfortable as the one at your favorite 5-star hotel? Sunday Citizen, a brand that began by creating and distributing stylish bedding for hotels, wants to transform your bedroom into an oasis of comfort.
We all know good sleep is important for overall health. Solid bedding is half of the equation. While testing Sunday Citizen’s fitted sheets, pillowcases, duvet, and throws, I was excited to see if my new comfortable oasis would help me drift to sleep more easily.
It has always been a challenge for me to find quality bedding products that don’t break my budget. In the past, if I found a good quality duvet, I often wasn’t a fan of the design or felt like I was paying too much. On the occasions where I did choose a fun design over quality, my comforter and sheets would start pilling or deflating upon the first wash.
When I first started unpacking my Sunday Citizen order – which contained the Double Snug Woodland Comforter ($350), Casablanca Throw ($170), Braided Pom Pom Throw ($170), and Santorini Candle + Diffuser Set ($124) – I was surprised at how well-constructed the products were. I was also impressed by how well-packed and vacuum-sealed the products were, which greatly reduces waste when delivered.
Although Sunday Citizen’s line of products is more expensive than what I’m used to paying for blankets and throws, there is a clear and significant difference in the level of luxury and quality. After testing the products for a few weeks, they’re still vibrant and plush as the first day I received them, even with a few washes.
Stylish and Sustainable
It’s not every day that I come across a luxury home brand that also focuses on ethnically-made and eco-friendly products. Although you’ll find Sunday Citizen’s products to look and feel luxurious, they’re actually crafted with sustainability in mind. In addition to using bamboo fabrics in their silky pillowcases and sheets, the cushy layers in between the comforters are built with recycled plastic.
Putting the Comfort in Comforter
Possibly the most popular and well-known product the brand offers, the Snug Comforter manages to feel strong and supple at the same time. One of the first things I noticed about this comforter was how thick and plush it felt against my fingertips. Between two layers of material, you’ll find a breathable filling made with 50 recycled PET bottles.
The snuggly comforter reminds me of a weighted blanket, but much more stylish. I credit the two layers of breathable fabric for the nights of blissful sleep I experienced while using the comforter. Unlike comforters that feel like they’re flopping around you, the woodland comforter helps create a sort of cocoon. The material has just the right amount of heaviness that helps you feel warm and protected without feeling sweaty or overheated.
One of my favorite finds from Sunday Citizen is the Casablanca throw. As someone who loves a snuggly moment while catching up on Netflix, I’ve accumulated many throws. The Casablanca throw blanket is definitely the softest and most well-made throw I’ve ever come across. The stunning printed throw is available in various fun and neutral colors and can be used as a finishing touch to your freshly-made bed or casually arranged over the couch.
Before draping it over my sofa, I followed the care instructions to give it a quick refresh: wash on a cold cycle, then dry on delicate. The throw emerged from the dryer just as fluffy and decadent as when I unpacked it, showing off its strong quality before I even began using it.
Sunday Citizen is truly worth the splurge for sustainable products that will last for years. As for the brand’s promise – I’ve certainly drifted to sleep much more easily these past few weeks.
