I absolutely love these sheets, they are deep pocket for those who find 20 inch too little, these are perfect with some extra room. They are very soft and the pillow cases are nice and roomy, not tight so that you have to fight to get a pillow inside them. So having said all that I ordered another set!!
The sheets look and feel nice. I love the royal purple color that I ordered. Color is just as beautiful after being washed. The fitted sheet definitely has deep pockets, almost too deep for our pillowtop mattress, but fits ok with room to spare. The pillowcases were also actually huge too, almost too big. You could probably fit a body pillow in each king size pillow case. You have to tuck the excess in on the pillowcases.
Going to bed is one of the best parts of your day, so you really want your sheets to feel like heaven! These do NOT! After the first wash, they were extremely wrinkled, the sheen was gone and they feel scratchy when you lay on them. I can only assume in time they will get worse. I have washed them 3 times and each time they seem worse for the wear. Not to mention, you can't slip your pillow inside the case, you have to maneuver them in just right. I read all the reviews before purchasing these, and hoped all the positive comments were right on and the negatives just Gloomy Guss's. Guess I am one of the Gloomy Ones now... but before you buy these, read up on other negative ones. If you decide to purchase, I only wish you better luck than I has - maybe I just got a bad one.
I was shocked when I opened the package to these sheets. They have a large elastic band all the way around the whole fitted sheet! We need very deep pocket sheets and most come with a small / thin elastic band. These though had about a 2 inch band all the way around. Highly rec.
I was initially disappointed with the quality of the fitted California King size sheet. The elastic is not encased in fabric, as I expected. It is instead sewn directly to the edge of the sheet, it is at least an inch wide and it is WHITE...startling on this lovely deep purple sheet! I do not personally care for this lack of attention to detail, and I almost packed the sheets up immediately to send them back, but I reconsidered because of my appreciation for the beautiful sheen of the fabric and the lush purple color. I laundered the sheets before putting them on the bed and am still pleased with the softness of the fabric. The color is exactly what I wanted. I will keep these as an extra set of sheets, because the price was fair... but I do not like that large wide strip of white elastic on the fitted sheet, and I would never order another set of sheets like this. I would not recommend this product to a friend.
I received the sheets in the mail and washed them. When I went to put them on the bed, there was already a hole on one of the corner seams. It seemed like a lot of work to try to return them at that point, and I guess they can be sewn, but I was disappointed. I ordered the purple ones and it's a nice color. I am quite happy that they actually fit over my pillow top mattress and memory foam overlay without any issues, it's hard to find sheets that deep. They aren't super soft either, but they'll work for now.
I ordered these only because the sheets I wanted did not have any color I wanted in stock. I read the reviews and my expectations were higher than they should have been in the end. Yes they have deep pockets which is a must and difficult to find at a reasonable price. So that part I am happy with. The color was spot on. It is unusual that the elastic on the fitted sheet is so wide and not encased but not a big deal since it isn't seen anyway. When I first opened them and felt them I thought "wow these are so soft and I think I am going to love them". Anxious to use them I threw them in the washer/dryer (on low as I always do). When I removed them they had lost that soft luxurious feel. I ended up only using the fitted sheet with one of my higher quality Egyptian cotton flat sheets. This only served to confirm that the new sheet was not soft at all. In fact it felt a bit scratchy. I can only hope that after another wash they will get better, but it shouldn't take more washing. All of my sheets are Egyptian cotton and have felt wonderful from the beginning so I have my doubts about these. I feel like I wasted my money on these as I am not happy with the quality of them.
Over the years I have bought several egyptian cotton sateen sheets from Overstock. This was by far the worst pair. Even after a wash these are not silky or soft like my other sheets. I was very disappointed in these sheets as I had very high hopes for them. The only positive thing I can say if you have a deep mattress these sheets are going to fit. However if you don't these are going to fit funny.
Love the midnight blue DEEP pocket sheets. Color is so pretty but most important they are deep pocket sheets. I washed them and I have to admit that they were not as soft as when I took them out of the package. However the more use they received the softer they become. Will order more....thanks O.
For a 300 count fabric, these sheets are great. The fitted sheet has a very strong, 1", elastic band that really makes the sheet fit nice on a 16" deep mattress. After two washings the elastic is still as good as it was out of the package. I only gave them a 4 Star rating because of the non-perma-press appearance. They do come out of the dryer, on medium or low heat, very wrinkled. If you want to show these sheets off, they will need ironing. Mine are covered by blanket and comforter, so they go right on the bed, no ironing. A great buy, wish there were more available colors in queen.
It was hard for me to find deep pocket sheets to fit my foam bed with a moving base. Regular sheets always pop off the corner. These have lots of extra room to tuck under the bed. The material is similar to what you can buy at ******* but for the price I was happy with it.
