I am spoiled by high-count luxury sheets. I ordered these 650TC sheets because they came in a mint color that is very hard to find anymore. It seems that with thread counts over say....500, that it's kind of a gamble as to what kind of quality you are going to actually get. Some are great and you smile whenever you get into bed - you actually sink into the sheets. Others are just....well, OK. These sheets are just that.....OK. Not great. For having spent so much money on these, I expected them to be softer and smoother, not scratchy like fine sandpaper. They look pretty and have a sheen to them, but when you look close, you can see the actual woven threads that make up the material. You most certainly should not be seeing this for 650TC material! After debating for a week or two, I have to send them back. I don't like agonizing over it everytime I climb into bed, wondering if I made a mistake. For this much money and a higher thread count, you should be anticipating the "feel" every single time you get into bed!
I relied pretty heavily upon reviews to choose my bedding so I felt I should contribute!! :-) I so want another set of these sheets! They wash wonderfully and accomodate my very very thick pillow top mattress staying perfectly in place!! Highly recommend!
I ordered the lavender sheets and they are so soft and gorgeous. I washed them as soon as I received them and they came out of the dryer perfect. I have a pretty thick mattress and they fit wonderfully. I love the elastic all the way around the fitted sheet.
I replaced cheap sheets from a comforter set with these...what a difference! They are very comfy, and I didn't have to put the sheets back on my mattress in the morning!!! I should have replaced the cheap sheets a long time ago. I also love the stripes on the sheets...makes it easier to put the sheets on since you know the stripes run from the top to the bottom of the bed.
I purchased a Queen set in lavender and I'm very pleased with my purchase. I would recommend washing the sheets with fabric softner prior to first use and with every subsequent washing. These sheets become softer with each washing. My only critique would be that if you don't remove the sheets promptly after drying, they wrinkle badly. I overcome this problem by just lightly ironing the pillow cases. Hey, a blanket covers the sheets anyway. I would recommend these sheets and intend to purchase them again when they go on sale and the site offers free shipping.
We had purchased an king size adjustable bed and the mattresses are separate Twin XL . We were shopping in the stores and even online, the thread counts were very poor quality in terms of thread count. We never dreamed this would be a difficult size to find. The sheets we purchased from Overstock are perfect! They are soft and wash up easily. The price extremely reasonable compared to high priced lower quality sheets. I highly recommended this product! In fact I will most likely buy another set.
I am really happy with this sheet set. The fabric is soft and doesnt ball up, I've had a chance to wash them several times now and I am very happy with them. Everything is expensive these days, thats why I gave the rating on the price the way I did. They are worth it in the long run if they last as many years as my mothers sheets seemed to when I was a kid!
I love these sheets. They were exactly what I've owned before. They are nice out of the bag but get better and better with each wash. The color was true to picture (got the burgundy). The color just pops when next to my champagne comforter. Would order again.
These are nice sheets. But they need fabric softener. Will become softer with several washes. They are made with other colored sheets so they will have different color fibers in them . I have the ivory color and they have red and blue fibers in them. Because of that and the softness, I give them four stars.
These are the only sheets that totally cover both sides of the mattress on our California King foam bed. I'm kinda crazy when it comes to sheets, they HAVE to be a good quality cotton and these are very cozy!! I'm about to order another set so I always have them on our bed!!
These sheets in California King were bought for my waterbed. Not only can I tell which way they go on (the stripes tell the direction), but they fit perfectly. They wash like a dream and feel wonderful! It would be nice to have enough of these sheets to change every night without wearing them out! I will be getting more. I have the taupe and the mint. The colors remain true, without fading. Thanks!
Bought for my sister. She never slept on sheets and pillow cases with this high of thread numbers. And they were beautiful as well. Whole family and friends impressed with looks and quality. I ended up buying myself a set. The stripe seems to add a beautiful shine. Best comfort she has had with any sheets or pillow cases in her life. They move easily when you are under them. .
This is not the amazingly soft and luxurious Egyption Cotton that I had hoped for - usually 650 thread count sheets are much softer - but for the price you can't really expect more (I had read the reviews and kind of expected this). However, although they are a bit stiff even after washing, I think they will soften up with use and be more durable than the typical high thread-count sheets have been for me.
The item description states the sheets are Egyptian Cotton, I disagree and so does my skin. They are synthetic fabric, which I am extremely allergic to, and after sleeping on them for a few days was covered in a rash all over my body that required medical care. I removed them from my bed and replaced them with my own egyptian cotton sheets and the problem went away. The sheets are incredibly stiff even after 2 washes, scratchy, and pilled already. I requested a return label and was displeased to find out I have to pay almost**** to return them. Never again will I buy sheets from Overstock.com!
