Took a chance with ordering these sheets because the ratings were so high. Received today and so disappointed. The sheets are sratchy! I will be returning and getting the same brand I got previously: http://www.overstock.com/Bedding-Bath/Egyptian-Cotton-500-Thread-Count-Extra-Deep-Pocket-Sheet-Set/5904477/product.html
This is no reflection on overstock. We've dealt with them for years and despite this experience will continue to shop with them. They're a wonderful company to deal with. This product had stains that looked very much like bird droppings on one of the pillow cases. Also, this same pillow case had this large rather strange stitching across the middle. Maybe this was an exception but if you are looking at these sheets be sure to read all the reviews. We were disappointed considering the cost of this set.
I bought these sheets in chocolate. The color is as expected, a nice deep brown. They have a very soft feel to them, though I can't speak to their longevity as I have only washed them twice. The problem I have appeared after the second washing, when the sheets shrank to the point that they no longer fit my mattress. I purposefully bought sheets larger than I needed, expecting some shrinkage. And they were too large, at first. I washed them each time in cold water and dried them on low heat, and now they just barely hook over all 4 corners. As soon as someone gets on the bed, POP, off comes a corner or two. Extremely frustrating.
For inexpensive deep pocket sheets these are a good value. The description states 500 thread count 100% cotton, but when I recieved the sheets on side of the package said 100% cotton and the other side said 55% cotton 45% polyester, made in china. These were a christmas gift. He said he liked them. When I call overstock about the description on the web site and the description on the packaging discrepancy, they gave me a partial credit back. I didn't have time to return and wait for new sheets to arrive. We were doing our xmas the next day. Customer service was excellent and they were more that helpful. I am a happy customer
These are the same sheets I bought from **** for $20 less for this sheet set! I kept my old pillow cases on the bed after I made it with the new sheets and compared. The color is EXACLY the same as well as the stitching. It's blatantly obvious that the are mass produced sheets that many vendors are selling. These are super low quality for the price, I feel completely ripped off. This is the only time I have been disappointed with a purchase from Overstock. I ordered a great mattress years ago and it's still holding up strong and I have recommended friends who have also bought mattresses from overstock as well. This experience of paying $80 for sheets **** sells for $30 is such a bad experience that I will never shop overstock again. WHAT A RIP OFF!
I've been buying sheets for a long time with a family of 5. I have never, ever seen any sheet set fall apart as quickly as these. In fact, I've never had a problem with sheets not lasting an entire year and yet II have washed the sheets twice - once before I put them on the bed and then once a week later when I changed the sheets, and there is a gaping whole in the seam on one of the corners, and I notice that around the seems on the flat sheets, the threads are coming out. As if that were not enough, the sheets felt scratchy on my skin. I thought maybe it was because they were only washed once and that over time they'd get softer, but obviously I won't have the chance to find out because they fell apart. I feel like a fool for paying this much for such incredibly poor quality sheets and I hope this review helps you not make the same bad choice that I did. I would have been better off with the 200 thread count ones that they sell with my duvet.
Orders these sheets per the great reviews for my Lebeda revive bed because the top is 21 inches total. The color is nice. The top fit generously and I could tuck it in under my matress. I washed them and was excited to try them . They are scratchy now so I'm hoping they will soften with time. They are not silky buttery sheets like I'm used to but hopefully they will get better. I agree that the top sheet could be a bit longer . For the money they fit great. Wish they were more soft.
Purchased brown sheets and an extra set of pillow cases. I washed all the products using the instructions on the packaging. During the first nights use one of the pillow cases tore at the seam. If this is the only problem I'll be happy with the product. The sheets fit well and look good. I have a Serta iComfort Trump collection queen mattress.
These sheets are nice, but I got 1000tc standard pillowcases to go with them. (I hate the king size pillows and they don't offer king sheets with standard pillowcases.) They can't compare to the softness of the pillowcases, but I was worried about being too warm with 1000tc sheets in this hot, humid climate. The extra deep pockets are perfect and fit well over my pillow top mattress with a little extra to spare on the sides after one washing. These will probably become my go to sheets for the summer months - they're still softer than average sheets - but I'll be investing in 1000ct for the winter.
SIMPLE PUT... These sheets are the softest most luxurious sheets i have ever owned.... You can not go wrong... If the color is most important then i would say that the color is a bit different but i am far from Martha Stewart... Just a eligible bachelor so color is of no concern to me... Functionality is great and again... These sheets are amazing!!!
FINALLY, sheets that fit!! I love these sheets. They feel so silky and they wash beautifully. I recommended them to my grand daughter who also had a hard time finding fitted sheets for her queen bed. 24" pockets would fit but very tightly. 25" are perfect!! I have a Springaire bed that has a tufted pillow top and on top of that I have a Sunbeam mattress heating cover so it was beyond impossible finding something that would fit easily. The fitted sheet never shifts because the entire edging has a wide elastic sewed on. Loved them so much I bought another set. I would like to see them in more colors though.
While the sheets had pockets deep enough to cover the mattress, box spring and 3" foam cover, the pillow cases show selvaged edges. The fabric is sewn too closely to the edge of the fabric and looks like it is unraveling. I hope they last the lifetime of the sheets.
Pro: Elastic and deep pockets. CON: These sheets are NOT 100% Egyptian Cotton sheets, nor do they feel like it. They are 100% Cotton. BIG DIFFERENCE! The package even states it's "100% Egyptian Cotton" but on sheets themselves, it states 100% Cotton, Made in Pakistan. All sheets I have bought that are REAL Egyptian Cotton actually state this on the sheet's tags. Obviously, I'm disappointed and not a happy customer! This is not a reflection on Overstock.com. I have enjoyed their products in the past, but am disappointed in Tribeca Living.
