Yes, the sheets are slippery, & the pillows slide, but they feel so good against your skin! This is typical of satin sheets. They fit my king sized, pillow top with foam topper perfectly, and the pockets go all the way to the bottom of the corners.So far I am very pleased with them.
The sheets looked and felt great right out of the package and also after the initial wash however, after using them for 2 nights the sheets (both top and bottom) began showing multiple micro tears all over. In many places these were along the seams and areas where the sheets had been folded up in the packaging. The issue I believe is that they appear to be very cheaply made (the material is VERY thin, and the stitching is not exactly up to par). Overall, they perform more like a $20 set of sheets that you would purchase at a factory outlet type of place. To be fair, the color was excellent and the sheets fit well, but they are definitely not built to last. I have other silk and satin sheets that are 2X thicker than these. Although these are a bargain, dont expect them to last more than a few nights.
The top sheet is undersized for the bed although the fitted sheet fits perfectly. Makes no sense. Top sheet does not have enough width to tuck under the bed on the sides. Given the "slipperiness" of satin, we lose this sheet and the comforter every night. Very frustrating. Only nice thing is the feel and coolness of the sheets.
First of all...the top sheet does not cover completely on the sides! I purchased California King set. The fitted sheet fits perfect. The top sheet is too short on each side. It lays halfway on its sides. It lays over like a queen size but the tag indicates it is a Calfifornia King. The quality of the satin is poor. The material snags if you are wearing a ring and is very lightweight. Terrible.
I've never worked so hard making my bed. The sheets kept slipping and then the blankets slipped. I must have circled my bed at least 20 times trying to get it made. In addition, they seem to be wearing fast. The finish on the fabric is very flimsy too, I don't think they will hold up at all. No I really don't recommend them. Buyer beware!
I don't know why I didn't read the reviews first, as I alwsy do that. Chalk it up to late night shopping. They are really disappointing. They are VERY thin and cheaply made. I had questions about them when I first opened the package but thought possibly they would soften and be manageable after the first wash. I was wrong. This was a total waste of money.
Sheets continually slip off the bed do not stay in place and have many nicked areas in the fabric upon receiving them. I would not recommend them to anyone! We are already looking for new sheets and have recently purchased this what a waste of money!
This is my third set of satin sheets from you and I just love them, my only problem is my cats love them too with their nails. So they all just got a trim...LOL... I will continue to buy these as long as you carry them, the others I have bought only have elastic on the corners and they don't stay on the bed. Thanks You, Pamela
Ideally the item seemed like a steal for the price I paid. However, I really did get what I paid for. The bottom sheet had a tear in the corner stitching. I could not put it on my bed because the tear was so severe. The material was not that great either. The good part is the customer service. The rep was very helpful and offered to replace the item or issue a refund. Because of the great customer service, I will shop with overstock again
I forgot how much of a pain satin sheets are. They do not stay put. They wrinkle up and bunch up. Even the fitted sheet doesn't stay where it's supposed to. I'm sure there's a solution, but spend the extra money and get a really high thread count on Sateen sheets. Sheets that feel a little like satin because of the quality but aren't.
