I always wanted Satin Sheets so I was very happy to see that overstock.com offered them. I had seen some feedback about the sheets bleeding but if they are washed before use that should alleviate the problem. So far I am very pleased and would love to buy again in a different color.
I purchased these sheets in chocolate brown. They are just beautiful! I washed them prior to putting them on the bed and the color held up nicely. Very nice material, too, can't believe the low-low price! For my top sheet, I placed it on the bed with the satin side facing down, so that when you're in the bed, you are between the satin fitted sheet and the satin side of the top sheet....feels amazing! The pillows do slide around (and so will your comforter), but it's manageable! As with any silk or satin material, it snags easily, so well-manicured nails are a must to protect the longetivity of these beautiful sheets! Definitely a steal at this price! I would recommened this purchase to everyone!
These are high quality luxurious satin sheets. The elastic on the fitted sheet keeps the sheet very much in place. They have held up beautifully to laundering (wash dark colors separately) and are still a rich chocolate color. I love the fact that I can toss and turn in bed and the sheets don't stick to me. They float over me. Bedding that you do not use will slip to the floor, it's the nature of slippery sheets. They are blissfully cool to the touch, very nice if you have problems with hot flashes in the winter. For summer, they don't breathe as well as cotton does, regrettably. On the plus side, you will not have bed-head when you wake up. On the negative side, if you are overdue for a pedicure, your dry skin *will* catch on the sheets. This is not a flaw in the sheets, it's a callus issue and you can fix it with a pumice stone.
I saw reviews over and over that said the sheets were 'slippery', etc - which is true - but they are satin... - it's to be expected. It can be annoying if you have the satin pillowcases on the satin sheets because they do slide around - but again, nothing I wasn't already prepared for. What I didn't really expect was for the color to bleed onto my other bedding. I bought red sheets to accent my white and black comforter set (primarily white with black accents). The color from the sheets/pillowcases bled into my white stuff leaving a faded red tint on all my white pieces. Not sure if this is supposed to be obvious that the color would bleed - but it was something I didn't really take into account prior to my purchase. On the up-side - the Red color displayed on the site matched my expectations to perfection, they do feel nice, and they fit the bed. I probably wouldn't buy them again, but I'm not completely disappointed in them either. For what you receive, the price is pretty decent and quality is good enough to get by.
I was expecting the quality of thease sheets to be poor but was greatly surprised when they arrived. I would compair them to satin sheets that I have ordered from Victoria Secret way back in the day when they sold bedding but for a fraction of the price. I purchased satin sheets from Ross as I was waiting for thease to arrive they were the same price as on here but they were stiff, poor quality, and too thin. I always wash my new sheets before using them so I don't know if that changed the feel of them but they are smooth, soft, not too thick or thin... Best sheets ever!!! Definitely going to stock up!!
These sheets are just fine. Quality is great for the price and they feel great. BUT, I've never had satin sheets before. My mom warned me that they'd slip all over the place but I still wanted to give them a chance. After two nights, the bf and I had to switch out the pillowcases for cotton because we were sick of having to hold onto our pillows all night to keep them on the bed. After a week, the sheets came off and haven't been put back on.. Again, the quality was good, the color was great, they are super cozy...but impossible to sleep on.
I ordered these sheets on a whim....The most comfy ones that I have had....Keeps me from sweating while I sleep because they breath well....A nice layer to have under a top cover...Might sew the flat sheet to the inside of a homemade patchwork quilt due to the feel against the skin...I have nerve damage so most fabrics are annoying to me....These sheets are not...Have been sleeping much better...Ordered another set....
Great sheets! They're super soft and comfortable. I haven't had any snagging problems, but the pillows do tend to slide away, so I just put them up against the headboard. I had been wanting satin sheets for a long time, and these meet every expectation. ...you can also go for a slide on them if you sit on one of the pillows.
