I have not spent UNDER $100 for sheets in over 10 years but these are better than the sheets I have paid BIG BUCKS for! I was hesitant because of the word "Sateen" because I hate slippery sheets. However these have an Egyptian Cotton feel rather than a satin feel. One review mentioned the way these sheets 'cover' but I didn't understand the meaning until the next morning when the sheets were still in the same place instead of being all 'monked up' in the mornings from my husband's wild tossing and turning. Now I get it. They simply do not slip around on the bed as other bamboo sheets or sateen sheets do. The fitted sheet has elastic all the way around so it stays on my 14 inch mattress very well. You will never find sheets of this caliber for this price...PERIOD!
