When I got these out of the package they smelled horrible so I go them in the wash right away. The wrinkled really bad in the dryer so you may want to you a permanent press setting on your dryer if you have one. I've been sleeping on the sheets for about a week and they seem fine. I can't say if they're going to pill yet as it's too soon to tell. Overall, the fit on the mattress is OK. We have a 22" mattress and we didn't even struggle to get the sheets on so that's a HUGE plus in my book. I'm hoping that the sheets will soften up some more with time and washings. Definitely a good buy for the quality. I'll likely buy another set when I can.
The sheets are very thin and lightweight - great for the hot summer in the southwest. I just don't know if this will affect durability in the long run. They are crisp and clean. The cut was a bit off since the two pillowcases don't match - one being smaller than the other. The bottom sheet is snug at the corners and I had to tug a bit to get it to fit - this is unusual and unlike the other sheet sets that I purchased .(All are Tribeca and are supposed to have same measurements) The bottom sheet does have a wider elastic band all around it that ensures the sheet does not pull out easily - a great feature. Overall, it was still a good buy and I am pleased with the purchase.
If you have a thick pillow top mattress this will fit. They are deep as stated. I found them to have a heavier fabric than most sheets which should mean they will wear longer. They are maybe not quite the percale I remember, but they come close. They wrinkle up like percale. And have a crispness about them AFTER THEY ARE WASHED. They do take a little longer to dry because they are thicker fabric and I did not find them to shrink. I really like them and if not totally the percale I remember, they are real close and for the price that is not bad compared to other places selling what they claim as percale for much, much more. Would recommend.
I agree with the other reviews that yes they are a good fit if you have a larger mattress, but these sheets are as scratchy and as uncomfortable as could be. They dont keep you cool when your sleeping on them and the material is very thin. Will be returning.
I love percale sheets, and these are percale. They are crisp, with a little texture, and for me, very comfortable. They have very deep pockets and a large top sheet. I wish they were a little heavier, but they are not thin at all. They come out of the dryer with very few wrinkles. For the price I paid, they are a great value.
These sheets have the best fitted sheet design ever! My husband and I have problems with fitted sheet creeping up over the corners of the mattress every night. We have had this set about a month and the bottom sheet has not come off once. I am tempted to stockpile them so I can have this design for life! They are also a nice, crispy percale. Great product. Great Price.
The percale sheets were listed as 300 thread count and maybe that is why they feel thin. If they were a lesser thread count, maybe the sheet might feel more substantial. While they do have the crisp quality or "crackle" that a percale sheet should have, they are not as "meaty" a sheet as I was looking for. For summer they will be nice as they feel thin. Pillow case edging has a tucked detail that is cheaply handled. True percale sheets are very expensive so for the money these sheets are not bad, just not a high quality percale sheet. After washing there is some very slight pilling, but think with continued use this should disappear.
When we bought our new mattress, I didn't realize how oversized it actually was! At 22" inches deep, I didn't realize how difficult it would be to find sheets or actually how expensive those sheets would be to purchase. after searching extensively in stores and finding only 18" deep sheets, I hit the internet. I came across many expensive deep pocketed sheet sets until I found these on Overstock. After reading the reviews, I took a chance even though they only came in white. These sheets fit my new mattress to a tee with room to spare. Great elastic all the way around the fitted sheet. And Yes, they are wrinkly when coming out of the dryer but who cares. You're sleeping on them not wearing them. If you like a crisp sheet to crawl into at night....these are the ones for you. Good Quality sheets at a reasonable price! I wish they came in other colors but would definiitely buy another set.
Its really hard to find a true Percale sheet. Well, these are just that. I dont like the satin smooth sheets. These sheets are crisp and clean.Percale are much cooler in the summer. If you are looking for a smooth, soft sheet, these are not for you. as far as wrinkles, hey they are cotton. I have learned to dry each sheet by itself and remove it promptly. Either fold it or put is right back on the bed. I do not use fabric softener, as it takes away the crispness.I highly recommend to all of the Percale lovers..
