When you run your hand over these sheets, they feel a bit rough. It is like an illusion. When you slide into bed they feel like satin! So comfortable and smooth. The flat sheet seems over-sized. That is excellent if you have extra deep mattress. (I do not.) The fitted sheet goes on very easily. These sheets should be rated 4.75 stars. The only reason they wouldn't be perfect is the fact that they come out of the dryer a bit wrinkly. Not badly enough to warrant dragging out the iron. :) They are wonderful to sleep on. I definitely recommend these sheets and would buy them again.
I would've never purchased these sheets had it not been for the outstanding reviews. None of them even remotely describe these sheets. When I first removed them from the packaging, I was struck by how incredibly thin the fabric was, so much so, I questioned whether they were in fact Tommy Hilfiger or not, and doubted their durability. I laundered them and put them on our bed. After a few nights the fitted/bottom sheet had stretched out of shape and no longer stayed in place, usually wadding up underneath us during the night. Every morning it was like having to remake the whole bed again. Today I removed them from our bed and noticed some extreme pilling of the fabric on the fitted/bottom sheet, as well as the pillowcases. My initial reaction was correct, these are extremely cheap in quality, and based on the pilling, I have no doubt these will have holes worn in them within a few months. Don't waste your money! These sheets are one step above lousy!
I've washed these sheets at least 4-5 times and they still look like new. They hold up very well and are made with high quality. My only problem with them is they are so wrinkled! I followed the wash and dry directions and from the very first time I've washed them (and have taken them out of the dryer right away), they have been like this. I own an iron, but I hardly ever use it on my clothes, so the sheets are used wrinkled. If you don't mind that, they are a great buy.
After looking through some mixed reviews of other brands, I decided to go ahead and pay a little more for a real brand name that would last. And while the sheets aren't the softest, they were definitely comfortable to sleep for a time. But the life span of these is terrible. I bought them to rotate with another set and the quality QUICKLY deteriorated. After maybe a few washes and a month of use they starting piling and roughening up to the touch. I just threw them away after MAYBE a half dozen total washes and they were trash. They felt like something from the attic bedroom at your grandparents. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.
I was very impressed with the sheets, but wasn't surprised I bought these sheets because they are Tommy Hilfiger. So far so good, love the color and best of all the price!! First time shopping @ Overstock.com, looking forward to more purchases.
