I am very unhappy with these sheets. I checked the sizing by putting the sheets on the bed before washing them. The pocket was extra deep and they were easy to put on. After washing, the pocket shrunk as well as the sheet itself and it's a tight fit and barely covers the pocket. The Flat sheet is not wide enough for a king size bed. It hangs a mere 6 inches on each side, certainly not long enought to tuck under the mattress. I was considering getting 2 sets when I originally purchased them but was glad I only bought one. In fact, after I tried them on (before I washed them) I again was going to order a 2nd set but decided to see how they were after they were washed. I would never purchase again. Also, the color "white" was not a very bright white. It is more like an off-white.
I absolutely love these sheets! I bought another set from another web site, they were much more expensive and the quality was poor. I will be ordering another set before the holidays. Thank you so much.

The sheets looked ok when I took them out of the package. I did note that the pillowcases were fairly narrow. I have a king-size pillow that isn't super large, so I thought there would be no problem since this was, or was supposed to be, a king size pillowcase. I wished and dried the bedding per instructions before putting them on my bed. I noticed the pillowcases seemed to have twisted a bit, but thought they'd be ok when I put pillows in them. The sheets were wrinkled, as mentioned in other reviews, but not terribly so. I still felt fairly confident they'd work out well until I actually made the bed. The sheets and pillowcases are skimpy. There's no other way to put it. My bottom mattress is 12" deep, and the bottom sheet just barely fit. The pillows did fit into the pillow cases, but one of the pillow cases came apart at the top seam without even being used once, even before the pillow was placed into the case. I needed the sheets because we had just bought a new split king mattress and it was delivered today. I needed these particular sheets so we could sleep on the bed tonight or I would have boxed them up and sent them back. There's shoddy workmanship here. I'm so disappointed because everything else I've gotten from Overstock.com has been quite good.
We just purchased the iComfort split-king adjustable beds & needed at least one more set of sheets beyond the very overpriced ones that came with the beds as 'a bonus'. These sheets are really wonderful! They are quite sturdy, rather than the flimsiness of some other 400 thread count sheet sets, but not stiff or scratchy. They feel heavy, but are not so heavy as to be uncomfortable, even in the very warm weather here in the Southern summer. I expect that they will be cozy, with a blanket, in the Southern winters. We laundered them when we got them, to remove the sizing that all fabrics have when new. There was little lint in the dryer trap. The sheets came out as soft as if they'd been laundered many times. I expect them to continue to get softer and softer as they are laundered on a regular basis, without getting flimsy & tearing like those of much higher thread counts sometimes do. When put on the beds, the fitted sheets were a bit lose, not surprising since our mattresses are not as thick as the maximum. However, despite being a bit loose, the bottom sheets stay in place properly, not sliding or bunching up every which way. The top sheet is ample for two larger-than-average people. The pillow cases fit nicely on the memory foam pillows; I would expect them to do the same on regular king-size pillows. The tone-on-tone striping is elegant in the dark red color I chose. I would assume the other colors would be the same. I probably will get another set.for our split-king bed, just because, and will probably get these in another color. I definitely recommend overstock.com to anyone buying linens. And, I recommend these sheets, in split king for adjustable beds or one of the 'regular' sizes.
We were so pleased with these sheets that we ordered again. They are perfect for our Serta split king adjustable bed with the I-comfort mattress. They are soft and wash well with few wrinkles (be sure and follow the laundering instructions).
I have read the bad reviews on these and do not agree, I bought 3 sets in 3 different colors and have washed and used all 3. Our king has a 13" mattress and while these are tight they fit as I would expect. The quality is very good and we love them, the stitching is quality and I feel they are an incredible bargain and great quality, in fact I am buying one more set as I feel this is a great deal for good quality sheets
I thought these sheets would have a slight sheen as shown in the picture. They are not very soft, The fitted sheets are plenty roomy, but the flat sheet could be a bit longer. It's hard to tuck it in at the foot of the bed. As another customer stated, they are more off white than white.
These are nice sheets, soft and substantial. They wash well -wrinkle in dryer but not more than one would expect. I got the split king, and it is a good deal. My only hesitation is that the fitted sheets, which feature nice deep pockets, are a bit on the short side. Similarly, the king-sized flat sheet could be wider. But that said, I would buy these again for the price. Someone else observed that the white color is a creamy white, and that was my experience as well.
