I was having trouble finding twin extra long sheets--when I could find them they were in youth or children's patterns. I was very pleased to find these in a pattern and color my mother would like. She has a new adjustable bed in the twin extra long size and these work great.

I buy these for college dorm gifts. I monogram them and personalize each set. Love the Egyptian cotton and they don't pill up or shrink. They are good quality for the price and come in the XL size most college dorms require. I recommend these over the "package deal" the college offers on bedding because these hold up, no-pill, no shrinkage, soft to the skin, pure cotton so the sheets breathe. You can't go wrong with these and you can order extra pillow cases.
I love the feel, color and design of these sheets. But every time I wash them I really have to struggle to stretch the bottom sheet to fit the mattress. I mean that two people have to do this, one at the head of the bed and the one at the foot of the bed, It's gotten to the point where I am beginning to hate wash day.
These sheets were purchased about 3 months ago as a temporary set for a twin size bed in my guest bedroom. I was expecting out of town guests and I did not have the time to go out shopping for sheets. On the plus side they do fit an 18" mattress, and the flat sheet is generous in size. On the negative side they are thin (I did realize they were only 300 count when I purchased them),and wrinkle easily. The ones I got feel o.k. but they're not as soft as I I would have liked. They have been washed a few times already and seem to be holding up for now. The set served its purpose well and I found the set fine for the price. Here's a tip; sheets should be dried by themselves,dryer should be set in delicate and sheets removed quickly after dryer stops to prevent too many wrinkles.
Ordered two sets of XL twin sheets and an XL mattress pad cover for my mother-in-laws guest bedroom. It is very hard to go out and purchase XL twin mattress pad or sheets if it is not time for kids to return to college (dorm beds). My mother-in-law replaced her twin mattresses with Extra Long mattresses because all of her adult (tall) sons complain about her beds when they visit! Shopped locally with no luck so I said let's get on Overstock and see what we can find. We were happy to find both the mattress pad cover an the XL sheets at a reasonable price and good quality. Very happy to make my mom-in-law happy. I'm the hero!! Or...maybe Overstock.com is the hero!
What can you say about sheets... easy to lie down on.?... I get a good nights sleep on them... when my wife steals the covers... I still have the sheet's. Seriously these are very nice and they seem well worth the price when we shopped at Macy's these were far superior and lest costly.
These sheets fit the TwinXL bed very well, and do not slide off when I raise the head or foot on my adjustable bed. That said, they are more of a flat cotton than sateen finish, and are already "pilling" only two months after purchase, and 8 washings. I'm already looking to replace them because the texture is already ruined. The fit is the redeeming quality, warranting the second star, as I've struggled to find a good fit for this size since we replaced our king size bed with the split adjustable twinXLs.
