Please believe the bad reviews! I know I should have. I must have received some defective sheets because I don't know how these got any good reviews at all. I ordered these in Ivory. They came in a pale green color but I kept them anyways because they felt soft at first. I washed them & slept in them the same night & it was horrible! They are so scratchy & uncomfortable. I washed them a few more times & used everything I could to make them softer (extra fabric softener, vinegar, baking soda, etc). They have softened up alot but I am still disappointed in them & how much work it took to get them where they are now. I'm still not 100% satisfied but what can I do, I should have returned them as soon as I saw that they were green & not ivory. Also the green has since faded away. They are lacking that sateen feel for sure. Yes the extra pillow cases are nice & the sheets fit perfectly on a pillow top mattress, but these sheets are definitely not worth the $$!
I washed these sheets thinking they would soften up, but they were as scratchy and UN-soft as when I opened the package. It's costing me $**** to ship them back, ugh! If you want soft sheets, skip these. If you want stiff and scratchy, you've found the perfect product!
I love these sheets! They're the perfect blend of crisp and soft, and are roomy enough to fit over my thick mattress with 3" memory foam topper. Best of all, I don't have to struggle to get the pillow cases on the pillows. I love the extra set of pillow cases too; I've always put two sets on to help protect my pillows. I plan to buy a set for my guest bed.
Overall, I'm very happy w/ this purchase. Only tips are that they are extremely wrinkled when out of the dryer and the color is more of a grayish/steely purple than a light lavendar as I was expecting. I'm still comparing prices and you can't beat getting king sized sheets w/ 4 pillowcases anywhere! Also, everything we ordered arrived w/in a few days, which was a great bonus since our new bed was coming and we didn't have anything for it. Love Overstock!!
I have a tendency to shred my bottom sheets because I have such rough feet. I got these because I figured they would last better. What I did not know was how very comfortable they were going to be. I like them so much that I actually iron them to maximize the lovely feel. If you don't iron them, you need to pull them from the dryer before they have a chance to wrinkle badly as wrinkles make them much less comfortable. But I highly recommend them.
These sheets are great! so soft and luxurious. They have that sateen shine to them which really looks great with the sage green color. The extra pillowcases for the price are a great deal. I haven't washed them yet so I can't speak to the durability but I'll be sure to repost if anything comes up.
I was really excited when these sheets came, but when I opened the package I was very disappointed with the color. I ordered the sheets in ivory, but what they call ivory is actually a very pale shade of green. Although the fabric is super soft and I really appreciate the extra pillowcases, the sheets look awful in the room because of the color. I will be returning these sheets, but I would still recommend them to anyone not looking for something in ivory.
I used a color catcher sheet in the washer because of the depth of color, and it was a good thing I did. They still look fine and evenly colored but the color does bleed.

for 600 thread count / sateen egyptian cotton sheets, i would expect them to be extremely soft. i washed them and put them on my bed and they feel very cheap and rough. i'm hoping after a few washes and fabric softener, they will lose the stiffness, but i wouldn't purchase these again.
