These shams, as the other reviewers have mentioned are *thin*, so you'll need plain white pillows for underneath, and even then, if you look, you can still see any white-on-white patterning. I think they're great if you have two rows of pillows on your bed and just want a sham edge to peek out on the back ones, or if you have colored/patterned ones up front and want these as a 'backdrop'. You can not beat the price for that purpose, but if you're looking for shams for the front pillows on a bed that everyone will see, I'd probably choose others.
