These were sent to my inbox as a recommendation. As it turned out, I recently purchased a flannel set from this same brand through Overstock, which is likely why the recommendation came. Typically, similar emails are gets deleted; however, finding a good set of sheets for a bed as deep as mine is hard to do. I'm glad that email was read because purchasing these turned me into a future buyer of this brand. The fitted sheet actually covers the entire mattress and stays. I love the elastic and size. On the flat sheet, one of the dots was missing but who really cares. These are great. The first thing noticed when I pulled them out was how soft they were. Sleeping on them was no different after putting them through the wash. I did read a review before the purchase, which I agree with now. The sides are not long enough to tuck in which is not preferred. I think a few extra inches of fabric on the sides to accommodate that need would be highly recommended, without changing the price. Sheets should tuck in on the side but these just reach where you'd ordinarily tuck them in. Nonetheless, I like them a lot and the flannel set purchased feel like pillows. Both are nice, but these are soft and also smooth so between the two I prefer this set.
