I was very disappointed in these sheets. I purchased and had delivery to daughter in college. She has a thin mattress and the the bottom fitted sheet still didn't stay on it all night. Elastic is no good. Am in the process of returning and am fearful I will get a hassle as daughter threw packing away.
First of all, it took 2 + weeks for my delivery, I almost forgot i had ordered the sheets since it took so long to get here. Plus, when I received the sheets the color was not the same as it was online and they were super thin and look cheap. I'm only using them for now, but looking to replace immediately.
Others have said that these soften up when you wash them, and/or that they feel scratchy when you run your hand over them but when you lay on them they are silky soft. So to be fair, my review is based on ONLY feeling them in the package. In the package they are not smooth. They do seem to have a high thread count (dense and even feel), but the thread itself is a little too rough or gritty feeling for me. They seem like a decent thickness, but again - I didn't pull them out of the package. I ordered the wrong size anyways so I'm sending them back. If I had ordered the right size, I'd probably have kept them but not been totally happy. They are certainly worth the $19.99 that I paid. Just not quite what I was looking for. I'm looking to pay a bit more for very silky perfectly smooth (which will probably mean quality will suffer given my price range). If you are looking for decent feel bargain sheets and you are not as picky as me, you'll probable like these. I ordered the ivory color and I'd say it's got a little more color in it than I expected. In the box at first I thought they almost looked yellow, but it is more of a nice neutral light beige.
The sheets were a bit scratchy at first (you get what you pay for, sometimes !), but they softened out after a wash or two. The only complaint that I have about the fitted sheet is that it shifts around a lot and I have to keep putting it back into place. Maybe I just move around a lot at night...Still, I bought the sheets in a "Seafoam" color and think the color is just beautiful! Good for dorms or those on a budget, like me!
