I was very disappointed with my pillowcases. They looked really soft and from what other reviewers were saying, I really expected the pillow cases to be soft. The pillowcases' fabric is heavy and not cheaply made. They just didn't seem soft to me at all. Maybe after several washes they'll become softer as time goes by.. I wouldn't buy them again.
I also ordered sheets of same material I wanted very soft and compfy sheets and pillowcases. Instead I got very thick, heavy sheets that wrinkled terribly when I washed them, even removing immediately from dryer. I have sheets with 500 count and they are wonderful. I thought that 800 count would be even better. I was wrong, at least with these particular sheets. I could not return them because I did not discover the poor quality until I washed them.
Having looked at local stores for king pillowcases and leaving empty-handed because of price, I decided to try Overstock. I was not disappointed in my choice of these pilowcases. They are well made, have a nice sheen and to me were definitely worth the money. They do seem a little long, but that didn't bother me.
These were OK. They are softer than what I was looking for. I like a little more stiffness to my pillowcases. Maybe that is the sateen quality of them. They are very high quality just not exactly what we had in mind. Did I keep them, YES. Do I use them? YES. Hope this helps someone.
I purchased the maroon set. The color is rich and matches the online photos. I am used to 700 TC bedding and wanted to try the 800 TC. After washing once, they are still a bit scratchy. I expected a more buttery feel, which is why I gave this a 4-star rating. I hope the cases soften after a few more washes. Delivery was very prompt. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
I consider myself to be a smart shopper but as far as Egyptian cotton sheets/pillow cases go i dont have much to compare to because this is my first set. so you can take this review with a grain of salt if you like. I got two sets of these pillow cases to match the 800TC egyptian cotton sheets i also purchased from Overstock. I have had them for a few weeks now and have absolutely no regrets buying them. Even after a few washes (i typically try to swap out/wash sheets every 1-2 weeks) the fabric is still incredibly soft and no pilling has occurred so far. in my opinion these pillow cases are awesome!
