These were purchased for my granddaughters because they have a terrible time with tangled hair in the morning! I have always used satin (silk) pillowcases and my hair is easy to brush in the morning. These pillowcases are exactly what I expected, except the seem larger than most standard cases. I ordered these in gold and they are the color they appeared to be on the computer. I am having these monogrammed and giving to my granddaughters as part of their Christmas. Oh, best price I could find online.
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! Can't say enough about them...I think I actually sleep sounder since I started using them! Super silky soft, surprisingly cool (satin can often be too warm when sleeping), no shreds from washing, just a fabulous purchase all around.
Save yourself time and money on these pillowcases. I was very disappointed with the pillowcases. As stated before in other reviews, the material is too thin and flimsy and may I add, very cheaply made. I should have taken heed to the reviews. I purchased my last set of charmeuse satin pillowcases at ***. I have yet to find the same quality.
I wanted the equivalent of satin pillowcases for my bed as they don't creat drag on your hair or your face while you're sleeping. These are a much nicer quality than some I have tried and they wash and dry well. The only thing I might have wished for is some sort of closure (velcro/zipper) to keep the pillowcase on the pillow. They are inclined to slide off.
