From my man's point of view the sheets were a good size -- They had deep pockets fit the mattress well. The pillow cases that came with the set were big enough for our over sized pillows and fit with ease. And when wet they dried really fast. Now I the woman liked them for their sheen and silky texture. The colors are rich and blend with a variety of decors and accessories.. They are beautiful sheets that make your bed something you can't wait to slide into.
