These sheets are OK, not great. I couldn't resist the Rose Wine color, which is why I bought them - they're fairly close to what's displayed on my screen but slightly less purple and more pink/red-toned in person. They felt smooth and soft right out of the package, but roughened up a little in the wash after following the washing directions exactly. I wouldn't say they're like "sandpaper" as some other reviewers wrote, but they're not what you'd expect for the thread count (they feel more like cheaper 220-250 TC sheets). They're much thinner than I expected, and I highly doubt they'll last more than 6-12 months without seam rips, pilling or thin spots, especially with a rough sleeper like my husband. They're alright for a quick-fix or maybe guest room sheets, but not what I wanted to be sleeping against on an everyday basis. I think I would've been better off buying poly-cotton blend 220 TC sheets at one of the big-box department stores.
I am at a loss as to why these were listed as sateen, or 330 thread count, or oversized, as they were none of those. I have a standard thickness mattress and these fit without any surplus. 330tc is impossible. These are just barely 200, if that. And boy are they wrinkly! But I'm happy to overlook all of these because I was thrilled to find a green that wasn't that yucky watered-down blah sage color. Despite the discrepancies I'm happy with these because green is my favorite color.

I will definitely order these sheets again (one in every color?). Great quality and SO SOFT! (No need to wash before first use.) I'm very happy with this purchase.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The sheets look a bit lighter yellow on my screen than in reality. I'd say the actual color is more "banana" than "pale banana."

Couldn't believe that these were called "sateen". They are scratchy and of very poor quality. My 13 year old son is not that picky. A week after I bought them i didn't see them on his bed. I asked him where they were and how they were? Thought maybe he was washing them. He grunted and said, "worst sheets ever mom! Feels like sandpaper." He is right.
After having these, I don't think I'll ever go back to cotton, even sateen and Egyptian cotton of any thread count. These bamboo sheets are just supurb. They wash well, hold up beautifully, have not faded, and the oversize is excellent for newer mattresses and those with a topper.
I got the light blue color in queen size. I loved them when I put them on our bed! They felt great, fit great. When I washed them, they had horrible wrinkles all over it. Even when I put them back in on the highest setting in the dryer, the wrinkles wouldn't come out!!
I was very impressed when my sheets arrived. I've purchased from Overstock before & am very happy with my previous purchases. I really liked the initial look & feel. However after having these sheets on my bed a couple of days I noticed beading like cheap sheets do after you wash them. I hate that feeling!!! I normally change my sheets weekly but I couldn't wait that long to change these. When I washed them I didn't notice the beading so I won't make my final determination until I try them a second time.
