I buy all of my bedding on Overstock.com, and I had thought that this was the bedding that I had bought before, which is why I chose it. It doesn't seem to me to be the 530 thread count that it claims to be, and when I removed it from the packaging, there were threads running from the seams on the flat sheet. I needed the sheets badly, or I would have sent them back as defective. I would not buy these sheets again, and would not recommend them, as there are many other superior choices on Overstock.
I bought these in the chocolate color. Gorgeous color and detail on the flat sheet. The color was spot on from the picture. They are very soft and seem to get softer each time they are washed. I purchase the king size and they fit the perfectly. I am very happy with this purchase and plan on getting more colors!
The quality of the sheets in terms of softness was fine and the color was also correct. But I felt that the sheets themselves weren't really 530 TC (the quilting looked uneven and kind of thin) and the package also states nowhere that these are Egyptian cotton. But I could have looked over this but when I pulled the sheets out I noticed the poor workmanship on the flat sheet. The seams were just a single fold with a simple, single stitch, so the frayed, cut edge of the fabric was sticking out all along the seam. Very poor work that no doubt would have unraveled immediately upon washing. So I sent them back. For sheets this is the third "dud" I have received from Overstock and I beginning to think I should just shop somewhere else for my sheets now. Up until recently I have been pretty pleased with sheets I have purchased here. Not sure what happened with the quality and inaccurate descriptions lately but I am pretty bummed!
The fitted sheet is probably for a deep mattress, I have a lot of left over fabric on my mattress. The worse part is that the sheets can't be tucked in on the sides! Yes, they barely fall over the edge of the mattress. There were a lot of loose threads wrapped inside the sheets, poor quality control. I am very disappointed with the size of the sheet,I will be returning this set. My first reaction was to write the review to make sure everyone is aware of this issue. All my sheets have always been tucked in on the sides, incredible! Very very disappointed! The fabric itself is nothing to rave about, they are simply ok.
I had a gift certificate and was hoping to treat myself to a great set of sheets. Ones I could really look forward to slipping into each night. Well, sorry, but these are not it! I expected them to be much softer and smoother. I bought much cheaper at "the" big mart" store for one of my children's beds and they were so much softer and nicer feeling than these. I feel I wasted my money.
I am enjoying these sheets. They are very thick, but do wrinkle. I think these would fit a very deep mattress. Mine is not too big, but my other sheets are snug on my bed. These go on very easily but don't come sliding off. They are soft out of the package, but with time I hope they get softer. I've only washed them once, so we'll see.
I ordered these based on the excellent reviews from other users. The sheets arrived and I threw them in wash and dried them on low per the instructions. After pulling them out they felt stiff and a bit paper-like. I put them on the bed and they were not as soft as I had hoped. I had ordered some 660 thread count sheets a couple years ago and they have been perfect and very comfortable. Now that I have been sleeping on these 530 tc sheets for about a week they are starting to soften up more and I hope after a few more washes they will get softer. Plus the Taupe color is different that pictured it has a olive green hue to it, the other taupe sheets I have are more tan.
