First off I used my o.co money to purchase these, WIN!!! I have a fulled sized 10" mattress with a down topper in my guest bedroom and these full/queen fit perfect. I love that the elastic is around the entire fitted sheet. they washed good, I put them on immediately from the dryer. I may quick iron the pillow cases and top of flat sheet when guest come. They are not the softest sheets nor are they stiff. I bet after a few washes they will be perfect. I am going for the orange and pink look and this color is exactly spot on, bright and fun. If these wash well over the next couple months I will order a white set for my master bedroom.
