In the past, I've bought 1000-thread-count sheets, which I have no complaints about, except the unnecessary price. I recently saw a consumer review that suggested the optimum thread-count was about 500 , and that denser thread-counts merely required thinner fibers...blah, blah, blah... Anyway, I thought I'd test that claim and indeed, I find it to be true! I love these sheets! They're solid and weighty. No thinning or pilling. Beautiful sheen and very well made. Queen-size fits my pillow-top queen bed perfectly. Love, love, love them! They're beautiful and feel posh and rich without the expense. I plan to buy more colors!
Would have given this product a 5 star, but pockets were not deep enough on the fitted sheet and the top sheet is not wide enough for my top mattress. I am using the set, ordered chocolate color and just love the sheen and quality of the sheet set. Has a very elegant look! My mattress set is a 15"+. I can get the bottom fitted sheet on, but I have to tug really hard to make it fit tight. Top sheet same issue, not quite wide enough to touch the bottom of the top mattress.
I usually dont buy sheets over the internet, but thought I would give it a try. Wow, I was very, very, pleased with these sheets! very soft, and silky. They are a thicker sheet, and are true to their color. I ordered the chocolate. They are worth every penny I spent on them.
I like these sheets, a nice weight (but not super thick) and a good sateen feel to them. I bought the white, which is more like a very light ecru. Won't be noticed if the rest of your bedding isn't white, but I could see the difference next to my white comforter. Not enough to bother me, but if you're super picky you should know about it. These do wrinkle badly in the dryer and probably ought to be ironed, but I'm too lazy to do so.
I always read reviews before I buy. The reviews on this one said that the off white was darker than "off" and one said that they didn't wrinkle. There were a few negative reviews but overall I was convinced that they were the way to go. To say that I am disappointed would be mildly understating. First, they are barely off white when I was expecting something with a little color. Second, they wrinkle like you wouldn't believe. As for the quality and feel of the sheet, it is ok but I expected better for the price.
Sheets arrived promptly. I check with reviews before ordering and these received high stars. I agree with another customer these sheets are not real white but more of an off white color but not that noticeable. The more you wash them the softer they get. I am thinking about ordering another set before they sell out. You will not regret purchasing these sheets.
I had ordered a set for my bed to replace the ones that finally had to get rid of, had them for years. They are Great but they didn't have them in my size so I ordered the Queen thinking they would work on by extra thick mattress, nope- I love these sheets, soft silky and stay cool. So I gave them to my Mom and she loves them. I had ordered another brand and they were OK not the Egyptian Cotton Sateen. So I still needed a set, wanted Chocolate, so I ordered these in Queen once again and also ordered a set of Sheet Suspenders and they worked GREAT!!, love the sheen, the softness and the color and with the sheet suspenders they stay tight on the bed and they work great on a full size bed. For the money you can't beet it and I do recommend these sheets.
Just as another reviewer mentioned, the sheet set is NOT as soft to the touch as I would have expected for a 600+ thread count. However, considering the price (~$XX), I'm satisfied with the quality I received. The sheets did feel softer prior to washing... perhaps the fact that I used regular washing detergent (Tide) in hot water and drying it on permanent press setting made the fabric rougher. Regardless, if the sheets hold up well to few more washes, I would consider buying another set.
This product is about what I expected CONSIDERING THE PRICE. However, they are rougher than I thought they would be, and the quality of the pillowcases is not that good. In addition to being rough, one seam on each pillowcase was misaligned, and white thread was used in the whipping stitch that prevents raveling. Since the pillowcases are dark chocolate, those stitches stand out like a sore thumb. I am very pleased with the extra deep pockets of the bottom sheet and the ease with which it fits over my mattress and a thick foam pad.
I got the set in ivory, which is really off-white, as other reviewers have noted. The fitted sheet is about 1 inch too short. I can fit it on my bed, but have to push the bed away from the wall, and use all my strength to pull it up and stretch it over the corners. It turns making the bed into a pain in the rear. Very unhappy with these.
