This is another qualified review. I was EXPECTING these "Sateen" sheets to be along the lines of what used to be called by the industry "polished cotton". The idea from the descriptions was supposed to be the indication of a certain surface sheen to the material LIKE SATIN. The sheen IS present upon arrival. Unfortunately, after laundering most of the polish or sheen is washed away! I rigorously followed the washing directions and I've never had this issue with genuine sateen or satin sheets I've had for years! These were intended to be replacements. I will say that the quality of the cotton seems to be very high and in that respect, the sheets have like ******** shirts actually improved in use, in terms of SOFTNESS. I only WISH that could have included the shiny finish to the material.
Sheets are very rough to the point they woke me up because of scratching me. not worth the money, spend a little more and get better sheets! I did wash them as directed but it did not make them softer. Color and size were fine. Fit the bed fine. Again, I wouldn't buy them, they are not worth the money and too scratchy. Hope this helps others avoid spending money on a product not worth it.
Was pleased with the set when it arrived... Loved the vibrant color and excited to get them on my bed. Followed instructions to wash before using, only to see quite a bit of fading & seams that unraveled and a wrinkled finish. If they weren't purchased using reward dollars, it would've been sent back for a refund. Overall, average at best - Coining the phrase, "Ya get what you pay for."
The sheets are not the worst I've ever purchased; however, they are not even close to the best. I wash my sheets once a week, and this review is based on two washings. First, there is no way that the sheets will cover mattresses up to 19" once washed. My mattress is about 14", and I have to struggle to get the last corner of the bottom sheet on. It does stay on, but any mattress thicker than 14" may run into difficulty. Top sheet also had side-to-side shrinkage, but it is still ok. Washing instructions were followed to the letter. The finish really does not feel like Sateen. It is not the slick, silky feel that Sateen is supposed to have. Compared to my Sealy Best Fit 400TC Sateen, these sheets are very different. The best way I can describe the finish is that I can feel the fibers. Anyone with sensitive skin will likely understand this. It is similar to a terry cloth towel, only much finer. Again, it goes back to the finish not being a true Sateen. I am going to mark "would not recommend" because if you're prepared to shell out the money, I'd recommend spending more and getting a higher-end set. If your skin is not overly sensitive to texture, then these will probably suit you, and it is actually a good buy.
I purchased this item in Queen sized only to find out the Queen didn't fit my queen-sized mattress. I double-checked my order to make sure I had in fact ordered the queen and I did. The sheets simply did not fit. The sizing was off by several inches. In fact, I had tried so hard to fit the fitted-sheet on my bed that it ripped in the process. I called Customer Service the following business day and unfortunately they didn't provide any assistance and were not willing to accept them as a return because I had washed the sheets prior to putting them on my bed. I'm sorry, but I don't know if everyone else puts sheets out of the packaging directly on their beds, but I do not. I washed them and attempted to put them on my bed, but they didn't fit. I've since tried putting them on my daughter's full-sized bed to see if they fit, and they did. So, if you're thinking of buying these, make sure you check the dimensions and don't wash the sheets before putting them on your bed. I've been a repeat Overstock customer over the years and this transaction has soured my experience. I don't think I'll buy from them again.
