This is my first set of satin sheets I ever owned. I'm not sure I will ever go with satin sheets again, but time will tell. It definitely takes some getting used to. I wasn't prepared for the slickness. I can't complain about the order fulfillment or shipping. Everything was in order and received in a timely fashion. Quality-wise, my only complaint is that even after washing the sheets before using them, they still ended up bleeding out red dye on my mattress cover, and on the wall where the pillows were pushed up against it. Maybe another good wash or two will take care of that.
Admittedly, I've never owned satin sheets before. Had I been fully aware of their properties, I probably would never have purchased them. Since I got 4 pillow cases and only have 2 pillows, I put 2 each on each pillow. Tough to keep them both on the pillow ... actually, I've had nights where both have slipped off. The sheets slide against each other just as easily, and promote mattress drift due to the slippage between my 15" Temporpedic foam mattress and the foundation. I just don't like them ... they are more of an aggravation to me than anything else, so as soon as I can, I'm going to replace them with just plain old cotton bed sheets and pillow cases. I'll chalk this one up to a lesson learned, that I should investigate items prior to purchasing them.
Shipping was fast, and product was just as I expected. Its my first set of satin sheets, and I'm hooked! You can't beat the price for the quality. I got the full size set and it fit perfectly. After you adjust to the slippery-ness, it feels like you're sleeping on clouds!
I've been using satin sheets for a few years now and having gone through several brands I've found that these have been the best choice so far. They have enough room in the corners to prevent tearing, which is where the others failed, and have a smooth and comfortable feel.
I had recently just moved into my very 1st apartment, on my own, and one of my going away gifts were the leopard print satin sheets! These sheets are incredibly soft - my first satin sheets! Super cozy, cool in the air conditioning, but they are also warm! It's almost like they know what temperature you want it! I have no blankets yet, but these sheets are amazingly enough for me! The only difficulty I have is making the bed! You know how when you put fresh sheets on you throw them up in the air and they usually land in the targeted spot? These ones slide! However, I would still reccomend these sheets to anyone you want to get a good nights sleep. I am planning on buying some of these sheets as gifts for Christmas!
My daughter is in her first apartment and is living on a tight budget, working as many hours waiting tables, interning at a music production company and full-time student at NC State. We have always teased that I am the queen and she is my princess, so to give her a bit of luxury I decided that satin sheets would make for a bit of pampering after a long day of study and work! She loves them and the best part is these sheets stay on the bed, unike most satin sheets! If you've ever had satin sheets, you know that by the end of the night most of your covers are in the floor and you're on a bare mattress, but not with these! Also, the pillowcases really help keep your hair from tangling during the night, and if you have curlers or a 'set' that you want to keep for a few days then these do the trick! I recommend them highly and will be buying them for my own beds and as gifts for weddings/birthdays for friends!
I love these sheets! Satin is satin, so yes, you will slip and slide around, but it's not really too bad; these sheets are utterly loveable. I bought them in gold, and they are not dull, but quite bright and shiny. It wakes up the grey duvet cover I am using it with and is riveting against the cherry headboard/ footboard/ and all of my other cherry furniture. I bought the full-size sheets for my full-sized mattress, and there is so much extra fabric this would likely fit a queen sized mattress perfect. I actually had to pull and tuck the fitted sheet under by at least 5 inches. This is a great six-piece set for an awesome price. I have already recommended these sheets to a friend. They look and feel great. They wrinkle rather quickly, but I suppose they could be tossed in the dryer to eliminate wrinkles. One side of the flat sheet is satiny, while the other is what I can only describe as mesh-like, but it still feels great and luxurious. (However, when I try to fold it over the duvet when making the bed, it doesn't have that same luster). This is a great way to wake up the look, feel, and mood of a room; Having a shiny set of satin sheets upgrade a young 20-something like me from a 20-something into an adult who is clearly spending her money wisely! These would be great for a couple (not as a wedding gift, I suppose you'd want to pay more). I will definitely buy these sheets in different colors: Ivory, Chocolate, Plum, you guys are next! I never even want to go back to cotton sheets!
