I previously purchased for the first time, the1000 tc solid sateen, *I have a review about those on the product page under 5 stars* So, since I liked them so much, I thought I'd try these. I'm sooo glad I did. I like them even MORE than the 1000 sateen ones.These get softer after each wash, and although some ppl don't like them for summer, I sure do. They feel like real silk, only better. They don't have the "slimy" feel of silk sheets, but rather a luxurious softly silken feel. I PROMISE you will NOT be disappointed with these sheets.I'm saving now to buy another pair. I HATE to get out of bed when these sheets are on... I never slept naked until I bought these. I know, that maybe tmi, but wanted you to get the real deal about how great these are. You'll want to feel this material over your whole body.
We have ordered many sheets though this site and others and are always looking for sheets with good reviews. The other reviews said that the sheets do not pill and are very soft. I would agree. You can tell for yourself as soon as you open the package. The sheets are pretty heavy are require extra time in the dryer but I am not complaining. The sheets are very smooth and soft. Love how they are a bit oversized as well to fit a pillow top mattress. I will be ordering more in the future.
First, let me say that I know what I'm talking about regarding sheets. I've slept on sheets priced from $50 to $1,000 for fine cotton sheets. I was looking for soft sateen cotton sheets that were reasonably priced so I tried these. I ordered the gray sheets and found them to be light, silky and soft - they get 4 stars. I liked them so much I ordered a set of the white ones. The white were horrible. Heavy, not soft, not fine cotton at all - they were junk good for covering an old car in your garage, or perhaps as painting drop cloths This could explain the mixed reviews of these sheets..
Wow. Great quality. These sheets feel like satin, but sleep like cotton. Because of the tighter weave I'd recommend washing them a couple times before using--and then use fabric softener. They wrinkle up pretty bad at first. But oh, my, I've never had sheets that were this luxurious at such an awesome price. I look forward to going to bed just to snuggle down in my heavenly sheets.
Maybe I didn't look hard enough, but I did not see anyone mention the size of the top sheet on this set. Enough about their softness, no one mentioned that the top sheet is at least 5 inches narrower than sheets I've had in the past. It's not a HUGE deal, but if you sleep with someone that is a sheet stealer, beware! The top sheet is so narrow that I cannot even tuck it in on the sides. Other than that, they're good.
Usually the higher the thread count the softer the sheet. These sheets aren't exactly rough, but I can't say that they are soft, because they are so stiff. They are comfortable to sleep on, but I only use them in the winter. The stiffness of them makes them heavy, so they are too hot for summer and just right for winter. I really like them, but if you're looking for soft, light-weight sheets, you won't like these. I even like sheets with some heft to them...these have a great deal of "heft!!"
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality except that the sheets are stiff
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very, except that they don't "flow"
These sheets were wonderful and luxurious at first but they did not last long. They became thread bare in spots (after a year and a half)and began to split in several places. The seams of the pillow cases are equally ratty and are coming apart. I bought 2 other sheet sets (of other brands) at Overstock and all three are rotated equally. The other two are fine. IHow disappointing!
I ordered one set of these sheets and got what I expect for 800 count - heavy, crisp, etc. I ordered a second set and got thin sheets that were not crisp and did not seem anything like 800 count sheets. Both orders were with Overstock. I did not return the second set since I had washed them and Overstock likewise states no return. I called Eschelon and Eschelon said that they had changed sources and what I got depends on which shelf it came off. No offer to replace the sheets. I have no need for a company who's product is inconsistent nor has any interest in finding out why. AVOID THESE GUYS.
These are the best! Unless you can afford the $300 plus sheets and you are very wealthy, I have had for over 8 months and they are still like new--Just Softer than ever. I am writing these review as I prepare to purchase another set!!!! You will not be dissappointed!
I haven't had these sheets very long but I do love them. They are pretty thick and very soft. I've washed them twice so far and they keep getting softer. I will probably buy more when I can afford it. The only downside is they do wrinkle.
After reading all the positive reviews, I was excited to received these sheets. I received them and I just want anyone considering them to know the set I received are NOT what it says they are - Egyptian cotton 800 thread count, sateen. NO WAY! They are heavy, very rough and NOT soft at all. I got them in white. I washed them, did not help. Now they cannot be returned...be careful NOT to waste your money! I went to Bed Bath and Beyond today to look at all their sheets. I looked at 750 thread count sateen, Egyptian cotton and they were soft and silky, nothing like the ones I received from Overstock! I tested and felt several different brands comparable to these and they had a COMPLETELY different feel! I have placed several orders from Overstock and have been very pleased, but these were so disappointing! Like I said, NO WAY the white ones I was sent are Egyptian cotton, 800 thread count, sateen...mis-marked, I have no idea. Now I had to purchase a new set at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $120 but so worth it, so I wasted $$$! Just using them to sit on at football games.
These sheets are a great quality and value. I have high standards for my sheets and a small budget. This is a splurge for me that has been soooo worth it! I am so satisfied that I just ordered a second set, hopefully they will get here soon.
Don't buy these sheets unless you like stiff sheets that smell bad! They came out of the package very stiff and has a funny chemical smell. Since I've spent a lot of time researching sheet sets on overstock.com, and this product had good reviews, I thought washing them will make them better. But NO, after first round of washing and drying, they came out with the same bad smell and stayed canvas like, not silky or soft at all. I bought the White Queen Sheet sets. Based on the way the sheets felt after the first wash, I don't think they're going to soften much more. I'll wash them a couple more times and see if the smell will fad. I've never bought sheets that smell BAD! Not happy at all with this purchase.
