This is an excellent buy! I bought this case of 6 for myself and my son. They are great for people with curyl hair and are very good for preventing wrinkles on the face. Even my husband wants his own. I have had them for over a year now and have had no problems with wear and tear. Excellent product.
I've had these pillow cases about 3 weeks and I love them! Would recommend themto anyone. The wash well and the zippers keep the pillows from slipping out. And the price was right! I just wish they were offered in King size and in additional colors.
When I saw these satin pillow covers I immediately thought of the contour pillows I have and ordered them. They fit the contour pillows perfectly and stay in place with the zipper. The first thing I noticed in the morning was that my hair was not all messed up even though I do a lot of turning. I also noticed my face to look better and smoother. I have given part of my covers to several people to try and they are also amazed, they work great on regular pillows too. I hope that you will keep them in stock, they are excellent in every way. Thank you Overstock.
I bought these for my mom hoping to help her with her fine textured hair that always seems to be left on her pillow. My mom has been more than happy with these and finds much less if any hair left on her pillow. So far I have been very happy with all of my purchases weather they be for me or being sent as a gift. Shipping is always fast.
I have been searching for satin pillowcases for about a year now, but always held back because of the restrictive pricing at most places. I have very curly hair, and these pillow cases don't completely prevent tangling, but they reduce it A LOT. I washed them after receiving them, and they seem just fine after washing. Like the zipper too, so the pillow doesn't keep slipping out. I was worried that the zipper would poke me while I sleep, but no such problems yet. I purchased in ivory, and it is a very slightly off-white color. I recommend these pillowcases.
I bought these based on the positive reviews as well as the over-fluffed item description but find them a real disappointment. So far from not damaging my hair, these actually develop static electricity so that I woke up with my hair sticking out everywhere and difficult to manage (I actually had to use an antistatic clothing spray to get my hair to lay down after sleeping on these). They also caused my pillows to slide during the night, keeping me awake searching for something to put under my head (the cat did not appreciate being a pillow substitute but she accepted it philosophically). Additionally, I have down pillows, and part of my expectation was that these would help prevent feathers from coming through but the weave is too loose, allowing feathers to poke my face during the night. While I acknowledge that these are not touted as such, even my basic cotton pillow cases manage to prevent feathers from coming through. As far as appearance, they are not top quality and are, frankly, unattractive but the cost reflects that so it is as expected in that department. Sheerly for the alleged virtue of preventing damage to hair, I would not recommend this product, and I certainly would never leave these on my pillows for anyone to see. do yourself a favor and invest in a quality product.
These pillow cases come with zippers. The zippers jingle with any movement. Because they are right by my ear, I hear every little jingle each time I move my head. It's a poor design for a pillowcase. In addition, the fabric squeaks with movement. I have never encountered this problem before, but it is very annoying. I was unable to sleep at all. I had to get up and change to my old friend the cotton case in the middle of the night. I am returning them. It costs shipping both ways; so, I do not feel good about this purchase. I don't recommend them to you. If you ask me, I say, "Do not purchase these pillowcases."
These cases are beautiful and the materiel is luxurious... the only problem I have is the metal zipper. Obviously, some type of closure is needed, but this zipper is badly placed or it has improper overlap of material. When I roll over or lay in a certain position (which happens at least 5x a night) that zipper 'sticks' me or 'pinches' me or 'jabs' into me. It can be quite painful. I like these cases overall - but wish they had constructed them better.
I was looking for satin or silk pillow covers to help prevent sleep wrinkles on my face and less "bedhead" for my hair. I have used a silk pillow case in the past & found it very helpful. I did NOT find these cases helpful at all, and in fact seem to have worse results. The cases are fine as far as pillowcases go, so if that is all you want, go for it. But if you want them for the reasons I did, I cannot recommend them & that is why I gave them 2 stars.
The satin pillow case was a purchase for my hair because sleeping on cotton doesn't do well for your hair . I have truly enjoyed the comfort ,the fabric and most of all how well it has helped my hair . The normal shedding and lustre is still in my hair. the pillow case apperance is akeeper with my other bedding assemble.
I bought these several years ago and love them. They are soft, smooth and comfortable for sleeping, and definitely good for the skin and hair. I bought this set of six to give to my 5 daughters (age17 - 23) - if they start young maybe their skin will age more softly! Can't hurt to try. So far so good, they all seem to like them. I would definitely recommend. They wash well and are sturdy, and the zipper close keeps them from slipping off the pillow and/or bunching up, which is great.
I purchased these because I have been using a satin pillowcase (another brand) and was looking for a few more to have on hand. These are a bit thinner that the one I had previously. Considering the price, I do believe they serve the same purpose. I use them to keep my hair from being a rats nest in the morning and the do work, they just don't feel quite as nice as a thicker satin. But again, for the price and the number you get, can't go wrong. Nice to have a few to pack when I travel.
