I've had these sheets on my bed for a week and washed them once. These sheets attrack every color of lint, shrunk after washing, and the seams are coming apart!! I have a huge hole in one of my pillowcases because the seam is coming apart!! I definitely recommend spending a little more money on a better set of sheets!!
This was my second set of sheets from Overstock and will NEVER purchase sheets from here again. The first set pilled up immediately. This Egyptian cotton set is so thin and after you wash them, they lose anything soft. Very disappointing.
We have bought at least 4 sets of sheets from Overstock over the years, and they have all been good sheets and held up well. These do not. I just ordered a new set of king sheets to replace them. They do not feel like they are 300 count (we have other sheets that ARE), they pile badly and are thin and light. We have been using them for 6 months.
I thought these were the same sheets I bought a few years ago, but these are of extremely poor quality. The sheets are thin, see through and very rough/scratchy. I would have returned them if I hadn't thrown out the receipt and washed them. These are now going to be the dog's sheets and I'm not even sure he will accept them. C'mon Overstock - get rid of these - they are not worth 10 cents!! DO NOT PURCHASE!!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Colors were more vivid in person
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very thin sheets - you can see through them & very rough after washing.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Obviously poor or I wouldn't have bought them
This is not a good product at all! The sheets I ordered years ago from Overstock were wonderful and had a similar description as these, and had they been available I would have re-ordered. The description of these was very similar except these had a higher threadcount, so I thought the product would be even better than my last pair. These were not at all what I expected! They were sateen which was not mentioned (the last ones were crisp cotton), and they piled up immediately. The last ones I had for over 3 years and loved them until they finally wore out. These are already fit for the trash! I will check on the return policy because surely there was some error.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very low quality; piled up immediately
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The site description did not mention that these were sateen!
the sheets are soft but after one sheets they started to pill and felt scratchy against my skin. i was disappointed and had to return them. further, i do not think the lavender color is well-represented in the picture. they are a more dull, like dusty rose type color.. not a light lavender as in the picture. for the price, i think these sheets should be better quality...
Yes I do buy my items by peoples reviews, after reading if this is what I'm looking for, I go right down to the reviews. So to the people who read these, it's a wonderful feeling sliding into these sheets and putting your head down. I'm surprised it's only a 300 thread count, feels better. I got the mocha, maybe could be an expresso, it's a little hard to see because it's between 2 other dark colors. So even after I washed it, all the color was there. Can't wait to pick out next color!
These sheets are awesome.I ordered the plum to coordinate with a comforter I had just purchased.The color is exactly as pictured.My bed looks like it should be in a 5 star hotel.Very soft and comfortable.Would highly recommend.Great value for the price.
I bought these sheets for our guest bedroom and I was very disappointed! They were soft out of the package but after I washed them it was like they were completely different sheets! They were so thin I could see through them, awful quality, as the saying goes...you do get what you pay for! I bought the 600 Count Sateen sheets instead, much much better!
We've used these for about 9 months now and the rich purple color stays true even after all the washing. The sheets wrinkle a lot, but that is not a big deal as I put them on the bed as soon as I take them out of the dryer. I guess that is also the fact that they are not a processed cotton. Overall, I am happy with the purchase and the color holding.
The dark green color is rich and gorgeous! The sheets are high quality, soft and I felt like I was sleeping in a cloud! The fitted sheet is truly deep pocketed, and for once my mattress isn't poking out the bottom of my fitted sheet!!! I highly recommend this sheet set!!!
I had to wash these sheets about 10 times with even more rinses and using different detergents, washing soda, vinegar, etc just to try to get the horrible strong chemical plastic smell out of these! I believe the problem is the packaging, the packaging is vinyl/PVC which is actually very bad for health and environment, one of the most toxic plastics made. Very sad that this manufacturer chooses to use this! And, there is no way to contact the manufacturer about this or any other issue with these products! All they give you on their contact page is a street address! Besides the horrible smell that took a LOT of washes to get to even fade so they were usable, the flat sheet is also nearly too small to even be tucked under my mattress on either side or the bottom! The material is also somewhat thin, thinner than I'd like- and not all that soft, but with all the washes it got softer. The first 4-5 washes however they were not soft at all.
I LOVE these sheets. They are so much softer than other cotton sheets I own and really durable. I need to order a set for my guest room as the sheets I have in there are only 9 months old and already falling apart and have the little balls of cotton on them. I didn't realize that I bought this set here over two years ago and they are still like new: ne fading, no loose seams, no little balls. Excellent buy even though they are slightly more than I'd like to spend, the quality and durability makes up for it.
We have twin extra long beds, so I ordered twin x-long sheets. They either shrank in the wash or they sent us just plain twin, because the flat sheet just barely has enough material to tuck into the bottom. The material was beautiful at first, but lost it's sheen once they were washed. And, of course, they wrinkle, which I expected. They are rather thin, being only 300 TC. I should have ordered some that were 400 or 500. But in spite of all this I like the sheets, and I'm going to keep using them, especially in the winter. Because, believe it or not, they are warm.
I bought these hoping that they were good quality Egyptian cotton sheets as they are described. Unfortunately, they are sateen! I was specifically looking for non-sateen sheets since they are generally inferior in quality and tend to pill after use. These weren't labeled as being a sateen weave, but they are, unfortunately. Not happy with these at all.
