I have a pillow top king mattress and sometimes have to make do with skimpily cut linens. This set is surprisingly lovely and generously cut. The sheets aren't as soft as high count cottons, but they are 100% cotton, quite comfortable and fit my big mattress easily. The shams and comforter are very nice, and the complete ensemble makes my bedroom look quite rich. I did have to purchase sham stuffers, but they're worth it to complete the look. And sitting and reading in bed is much nicer now with all the pillows for back support. I should also mention that my set arrived without one set of shams. Overstock's customer service responded quickly to get me the missing pieces with minimum hassle. I would not hesitate to order more products like this from this company (and I have purchased many items of all kinds from them over the past several years). I value Overstock as an excellent source for merchandise.
