SO very disappointed. How on earth did this get 4 stars?! Quality- Even after washing on delicate with plenty of fabric softener, these sheets feel like sandpaper instead of like butter as they should. Description- Color is more cream than ivory. Fit- Pillow cases too small for queen size.
After reading the reviews here I had expected this product to be much softer than it was. It honestly felt like every other stiff cotton sheets I've purchased from everyday department stores. Not really worth going out of my way to order these online. They are just "OK".
These sheets are extremely soft right out of the package, and excellent quality. At first I was concerned that the fabric was too thin, but after one night sleeping on them it was clear my concern was unfounded. I purchased a set of red ones and washed them alone in warm water the first couple of times in case the color ran. By the 3rd wash I was able to wash them with other lighter colors, but I would still recommend warm not hot. I bought another, more expensive 500 TC set at the same time as this one, and these were fare superior. I highly recommend them.
We wanted to mimic the feel of a quality hotel bed, starting with those stripes! These were less than half what the dept stores we're charging and we achieved what we wanted! sleeping so soundly in these hotel like sheets. the Red ones are particularly awesome!
Buying sheets is my nightmare. They never fit, or they are very poor quality that look like rags when they are washed. We have a 10 year old mattress that is not made for the standard "deep pocket" sheets that seem to be the only size available. When I read the reviews that these fit and feel wonderful, plus the pocket depth is 16", I purchased a king set. Washed it before putting it on the bed, and was THRILLED to have them fit and feel so soft and smooth. I just ordered 2 more sets.
I was replacing sheets purchased less than 6 months ago (not from Overstock) that were so light there holes in the flat sheet. I wanted something substantial so I wouldn't be replacing again. These are medium weight, I would've preferred heavier, but will see how they hold up. They're soft and are doing fine after several washes. I'll probably keep them for warmer weather use and look for another heavier set.
I needed new sheets for my new queen size bed. After reading the many reviews of the various cotton sheets, I chose these and am very pleased. The softness, deep pocket contour with great elastic corners, pretty green color and overall quality of the fabric are the main winners. The only down side would be that they tend to wrinkle quite a bit if not rescued from the dryer promptly. Will purchase again, however, because I do like them.
