Sateen is actually made of cotton but is woven with a satin weave to give it a texture more like silk. The weave creates one shiny side and one matte side, and it’s light and breathable for a comfortable summer night’s sleep. Just make sure the sateen you choose is 100 percent cotton. Less expensive versions are often a blend of cotton and rayon, which traps body heat.

Cost: About $20 to $95, or higher depending on thread count
