Sheets were NOT soft/smooth/shiny per the ad and after the second washing had shrunk to the point of NOT being able to tuck in the top sheet bottom side AT ALL on a standard size mattress and the bottom fitted sheet took a great effort to get around/on a 16” non-pillow top mattress and will surely have early failure/ripping having to pull this hard. The cost for this higher thread count and sateen was NOT worth it or recommended and if shrinkage was expected it should have been allowed for or the size noted after washing.
I love, love, love these sheets! I've never owned sheets over 300 count and I decided to splurge...so glad I did! I love the neutral colors and the sheets easily fit my deep pocket queen mattress. I washed them according to label directions (cold, gentle cycle) and have never had a problem. I fill like I'm at a luxury hotel every night!
