Wonderful sheets! Purchased Ivory 1st, then sage. These sheets are great but do need a "breaking in time" as is the case with most high TC bedding. Because they are thick heavy sheets you really need to wash them probably a dozen cycles to start feeling just how soft they become. I have similar quality white sheets, also Egyptian cotton, they have been washed multiple times the past yr & now are sooooo!!!! soft. What you're paying for is the density of weaving, that's what "thread count" means, to those not accustomed to this they may seem heavy & even a little scratchy at 1st. Once broken in, you'll love them & sleep so well you'll never go back and they will last for many yrs, they are an investment. RE: wrinkling issue, 1st they are cotton, 2nd launder as recommended, 3rd dry top & bottom sheets separately with a tennis ball in the dryer (old trick) that keeps them from "balling up", 4th fold & stack nicely; this should smooth out most of the wrinkles. I alternate my linens, touch up top sheet/ pillow cases with iron & my bed always looks & feels WONDERFUL!!! Overstock is great, prices can't be beat & customer service is fab. Invest in these linens, you'll be glad you did (WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR SLEEP?)
Looking for a featherbed--This is the one!! I was leary when I received it and opened it up because of past experiences with purchasing other featherbeds. Not this one--they are not kidding when they say 5-inches thick it really is!! And to receive a cover sheet for that price-unbelievable.
Lay it out on your bed and slide your cover sheet on--it begins to instantly fluff up and rise. I pushed the sides in and the top and bottom in and up until it is piled up like a pyramid on my bed, I let it sit that way to air out and fluff up. It really works--I do this every other week to really fluff it up-- and believe me it responds.
I have to tell you that it is truly like sleeping on a cloud!! I had a friend who was store buying featherbeds for twice the cost and returning them because he was so dissatisfied. I told him to purchase this one and he loves it. He said,"Finally a featherbed that is all that it says it is...I cannot believe how comfortable this is." It is well worth the price..... and one comparable in quality would easily go for twice the price. If you have had similiar experiences with trying to find a good featherbed--Seriously!!---Look No More--This Is The One!!
I previously purchased a set of 1200 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and wanted a spare set, so I purchased these ones expecting to be a bit dissapointed after the weight and feel of my other set.
When these sheets arrived the first thing I noticed was the hemstich detail and the color - which is amazing! It is actually much richer than shown in the photo. My husband and I love the color so much, we have decided to paint it on our bedroom walls which are currently a red I have loved for years. This color is not ordinary terracotta, but a redder richer, deeper color. (Not at all orangy) Very lovely with my Asian themed bedding set.
These sheets have just a hint of a sheen and are very study. I love the extra deep pockets - we have a pillow top mattress with a pad on it and these sheets fit over everything with no hassle.
I love the feel of the sheets against my skin and we have found that we don't need a blanket when the evenings are cooler; still the sheets breathe and keep us cool on warmer nights.
Compared to the 1200 thread count set, I honestly see very little difference and honestly I prefer these because of the color - so the original set has been demoted to extra set status.
I originally bought a set of these sheets in Cal King Medium Blue. I loved them so much that I bought two sets of the matching King pillowcases, and another sheet set and two more pillowcase sets in the Sage color. The 1500 TC pillowcase colors match the 1500 TC sheets perfectly, and are as pictured. Both Medium Blue sheets and pillowcases are a saturated medium blue color, although the Sage color is slightly less saturated than the picture on my monitor shows. Both Med Blue and Sage feel and look to be very expensive and high-quality. The sheets are very deep, and easily fit my 14 inch mattress with a mattress pad underneath, with room to spare. But People, PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH before you buy high Thread Count sheets. Don't give low reviews, or waste your money, simply because you were ignorant of what you were ordering. High TC sheets start out being heavy and a little stiff when you first open the package, but they soften up by washing and using them. The higher the TC, the heavier the sheets, so these sheets are heavy. Lower thread count sheets will be initially more pliable and more "airy" feeling, because there are fewer threads per square inch, so they actually are more airy since there is more air between threads. If you like light weight, airy sheets, get low TC or cotton-blend sheets. Initial softness in cotton sheets depend on the quality of the cotton used, and whether they have been pre-softened before you buy them. Having your sheets pre-softened means that they are usually more expensive, because of the extra time and processes involved. These sheets have not been pre-softened, so we are able to buy them cheaper than you would otherwise. Also note that all cotton sheets, especially higher TC sheets, WILL WRINKLE and take more time to dry! If you have multiple sets, which I recommend, fold the other set when it comes out of the dryer, putting your folded pillowcases between the bottom and top sheets so the weight naturally presses them, and put the set away. When you take them out to change sheets, the folded set will have lost most of the wrinkles. By alternating sheet sets, and folding the unused set, you shouldn't have to iron your sheets. If you are still unsatisfied with your minor wrinkles, or if you only have one set, you can iron your sheets if it really bugs you. These particular sheets are beautiful and have held up well after washing. They are exactly what you would expect from 1500 TC sheets, will last forever, and are far less expensive on the big O than elsewhere.
While talking to my Dad one day he was telling me how hard it was to find a 100% cotton blanket. I checked several sites and was impressed with the price of this blanket on Overstock.com. I found several on other sites that were 2-3 times more costly. I ordered one for him for Christmas and at this price I thought I should order one for myself as well. The order was delivered quickly. I opened one and was impressed with the texture and weave.
Prior to using it, I washed and dried it. Upon taking it out of the dryer, I was totally impressed with the way the blanked "thickened" up. It was easily 3 times thicker. I put it on the bed and am shocked at the weight of it and how warm it is. I like to sleep in a cold room but this blanket prevents that.
I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. If you are looking for a comfortable, high quality cotton blanket, buy this one. You won`t be disappointed.
***WARNING*** Clean your lint trap before drying. You will find a ball of lint about the size of a softball after drying this blanket. Of course I have a king size blanket.
I purchased this 4" memory foam mattress topper as a last effort to find something that would help me sleep better. I have been fighting a few horrible disease's called Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthristis and Chronic Fatigue for years and have never slept through the night. I'm only 44yrs old and too young to feel so old. The first time I put on my memory foam topper, I just layed there with no pain and instant relief. I didn't even get into my pajamas; because I fell asleep within minutes and to my amazement, slept all night long in the same postion. I woke up in complete shock and actually for the first time could walk to the bathroom without feeling stiff and bouncing off my furniture to just hold me up because of the pain. There's not a prescription from any of my doctor's that could have provided me with such relief. Now my condition is getting so much better because I am actually sleeping through all four stages of sleep that your body needs to repair your muscles, ligaments, tendons, not to mention your state of well being from having a great night sleep! I highly recommend this topper to everyone, especially people who suffer from insomnia caused by pain that awakens you when ever you move at night. With this topper, I find that I do not move. This is the best investment which was so cost effective, I could have ever purchased. There's not a sleeping pill in the world that can out do this topper! Thank You Overstock for saving my life. I was at a very low time in my life from suffering such chronic pain day and night. A good nights sleep keeps pain at bay during the day. WOW...what a dream come true. Sincerely, Carolyn
I have looked for a long time for a bedspread for our queen bed. I didn't want a comforter set where a bedskirt was necessary. I wanted a bedspread that covered mattress and box spring and sideboards of the bed frame. This spread fits the bill perfectly. It does not go to the floor because we have an especially high mattress but that's okay with me. It's not too heavy but heavy enough for added warmth in the winter. It will be fine for summer use as well. It is sturdy and well constructed. The pattern even makes it easy to make the bed each day, lining up the edge of the pattern to the edges of the bed. It is well made, pretty, true to the color in the picture on the website, and large enough to generously cover both the bed and the pillows. At last I don't need to have pillow shams to make my bed look finished.
I bought these towels for the master bathroom. I had nice towels in the guest bathroom but old ones in our master bath. These towels are very thick and plush. It is easy to dry off with them. The only thing of note is that when put in the dryer the first time, they produced LOTS of lint. I cleaned the dryer vent several times before the load was finished drying. I would recommend these towels to others.
First, I have to tell you that I am more picky than most people, especially when it comes to stuff that will touch my skin! My husband says I would have made a great Queen! I carefully read reviews looking for just the right comforter for our Master Bedroom. My husband and I had enjoyed the fluffy, soft covers during our stay at the Hampton Inn, and we wanted something very close to their white, soft comforter. I decided on the down alternative comforter, because I was afraid I might have allergies to real down.
I then started to narrow down the comforters that Overstock has to offer. I did not want to pay $400 for a comforter, like one would have to do for Hampton's bedding. We are pretty rough on our comforters, and I needed something more "disposable."
When this comforter came in the mail, I promptly took it straight to my extra-large capacity washer to give it a freshening wash, as I do not like the smell of a new piece of bedding, generally. I wanted to wash it in my detergent and fabric softener so that it would be fresh for the first night of use.
As one person previously reported, I got a small tear in the seam where the comforter rubbed against the agitator, apparently. I decided that this comforter, especially in a king size, is just too big to go in a home washer, and I think it really would be better to take it to a laundry mat or dry cleaner for cleaning. Otherwise, you are going to rub all kinds of tears in it.
I put it through 3 cycles in the dryer. It fluffed fine, but it takes a long time to dry all that filling inside. Now that my comforter was clean and fresh, I was ready to test it for comfort.
My initial feeling was that the material did not really seem as soft (at supposedly 700 thread count) as my 400 thread count sheets did. For particularly sensitive princesses like me, I thought it had just a tad bit of roughness to it, but nothing horrible. After sleeping with it for two nights now, I can say that it is wonderful. It does not make me itch or bother my very sensitive skin in any way. It is incredibly soft!
The weight of this comforter is about moderate. It is not too light or too heavy. We sleep under heavy air conditioning, and it definitely is wonderful to snuggle under it in the cool hours of the morning. It keeps you very warm without being really heavy on your body. I think it will be great in the winter here in Tennessee.
Like other reviewers, I will say that it runs extremely small. I put it on a Queen bed with thick mattresses, and it will not even cover from top to bottom of the mattress. It comes down on the sides just about to where the dust ruffle should start. I think you are going to have to find a thin spread or something to put over it if you want to have a good looking bed ensemble. It definitely does not cover my bed like I would like. I use it more like one would use a blanket. I have a more formal spread to put on when company comes.
So what is my bottom line? Even with all its shortcomings (mostly the size of it), I love it, and so does my husband. It is every bit as comfortable as the Hampton Inn's luxurious bedding. At this price, you can use it and replace it when it gets worn out. I am thinking about getting one for all my kids for their beds for the winter. They are so nice to wrap up in, and if you are worried about soiling the white comforter, I would recommend getting a comfortable duvet cover that can be taken off and washed periodically. For me, I think I will just take mine to the laundry mat when it needs washing and put it in their huge commercial washer. You don't have to do it that often, and it is a minor inconvenience to have this much plush, soft cover night after night. I urge you to go for it! I doubt you would be disappointed.
I loved everything about this comforter! It was warm and light and soft and no feathers were poking through!! The only thing you should note, is if you have a deep mattress, you will need to get a larger size comforter. I have a queen size bed, but the queen size comforter looked funny because it didn't cover the whole mattress. So I put the queen size comforter on my guest bed which is a full size mattress, then I purchased a new comforter in a size King for my bed! I love it!! :)
Have contunued to purchase all our linen from Overstock.com due to the excellent quality of all Egyption Cotton Sets of thread count over 1000. I needed larger pillow cases to match my prior purchase of sheets from Overstock.com and was pleased to find this set of oversize pillow cases to fit our large pillows. Once you buy and use any of these 1000 to 1200 thread count egyptian cotton linen you will never settle for anything less. The price is right and comfort for my bed where we all spend 25% to 33% of our day is worth spending a little extra to me. Overstock.com makes the savings and value make me feel great the other 75 plus percent of my day.
I used to wake up everyday with aches in my neck and lower back. I am only 30 but I felt like I was 90, all crotchety and stiff. I was involved in a serious car accident and have always needed 15 pillows to find comfort even when sitting up. I am exaggerating but you get the point. I always hurt. We had purchased a new pillow top mattress thinking that would help. It was quite firm and I did not want to deal with the hassle of finding another expensive failure. I resorted to these toppers. I purchased 2 of the Slumber Solutions Highloft Supreme Memory Foam toppers in the standard King size (one 3" and one 4"). I couldn't decide after reading the reviews so I bought both....If you are trying to decide between the 3" and the 4" Let me help you out. READ THIS. Both had a smell...nothing to run away from...just a little like fresh rubber and Pine-sol. Most of it went away by the 2nd day. Surprisingly the 4" was less smelly than the 3". Let me tell you - There is a HUGE difference between the softness/squishyness between the 3" and the 4" heights although everything else is the same (density, size, etc). The 3" provides cushion but nothing ultra plush. It provides extra comfort but you can still feel the hard bed through the bottom of the topper. The 4" is the ultimate in comfort. It is super thick and you CAN NOT feel the hard mattress underneath. I was able to put the 4" on the floor and not feel the floor. You could feel the floor through the 3". I never would have thought that 1" would make that much difference but IT DOES! It is unusual because the 4" is soooo soft but yet my back doesn't sink into a hole. I tried it with the fingers up and with the fingers down and I prefer them up. I feel like they are holding me up everywhere they touch my body -back of the neck, shoulder blades, lower back, even the back of my legs, hammys, and calves.. I didn't think I would like it. I have never been an egg crate kind of gal but this is different. I absolutely love to cuddle into my bed and rub my feet back and forth giving me a little massage right before I drift off into bliss. ...I guess this is what people mean by sleeping on air. I never understood them or what they meant when they said that. It is really nice. I seriously ask my husband every morning "How did we live without this?" He agrees. We have never had so much comfort out of an item that cost so little. I needed soft cushion with good support and the 4" is the answer. Both the 3" and the 4" are GREAT products and I would recommend both. We use the 3" king -cut into 2 twins- for my 3 year old son and also the guest bed. Both beds were hard as cement and it was actually nicer to sleep on the floor before. Topper sizing was perfect standard King makes 2 twins- just cut with sharp scissors. Now with the toppers they are quite comfy. My son no longer climbs out of his bed to sleep on the floor. My guest also commented that his bed was tremendously more comfortable too. He slept on the bed before the topper arrived and then after I placed it on the bed. NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE> So, in conclusion, if you are trying to decide between the 3" and the 4" and you are looking for squishy, supportive comfort GO WITH THE 4". If you need to save a few dollars then go with the 3" but I can almost guarantee that you will wish you had spent the few extra dollars for the 4" right after you receive the 3. Do yourself a favor and do it right the first time BUY THE 4 TOPPER.
These towels are exactly what you find in luxury five star hotels. They are thick and soft, and the large size makes them almost like a wrap when getting out of shower or bath. The deluxe thickness quickly draws moisture away from the body leaving the surface of the towel almost dry. They launder beautifullly. I have washed mine twice and they grow softer and more pliant each time. The color is vibrant and true and has remained so with laundering. Great addition to a guest bathroom, or for that little touch of luxury for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
I dont think I've ever left a review for any kind of product, however....this was the BEST purchase I've made all year. My husband is the biggest skeptic and believes everything is a ploy to get our money. When I told him I purchased this mattress topper, he said "just throwing your money away, you know its not going to work". WELL WELL WELL, we have BOTH admitted that this is BY FAR THE MOST COMFORTABLE mattress topper I've ever had. I put my nephew down to sleep on the bed, where he would only sleep 1 hour at a time, he slept for 3 hours! I'm a busy person, who runs off very minimal sleep maybe 3-4 hours a night, and this has made a BIG difference in my sleeping pattern. I'm now thinking about purchasing this mattress topper for the pull out bed in the living room! I'm sure our guests will appreciate it. I'm sleeping more soundly, more comfortably, not waking up tossing and turning ever 30 mins, and my husband and I are both noticing the differene in our energy levels. We now wake up refreshed and READY. Where as we had to literally push each other off the bed to get up for work! GREAT GREAT GREAT! I can't rave enough :-)
Perfect blanket for hot weather and for those who don't like heavy covers. Add the satin binding on all sides and this blanket is perfect for South Florida weather all year round - never too warm, keeps the warmth in when you need it, and is incredibly light weight. It washes good, dries quickly, and has held up well through many washings. I'm always skeptical about buying when I haven't actually seen the product but in this case I was pleasantly surprised. I bought one last year and just again for a wedding shower gift. For the price it was perfect for what I was looking for.
For years I have purchased pricey "luxury" sheets from a linen warehouse store, but they can't compare to these. Soft as can be, and these really don't wrinkle much. Best of all, they truly DO fit an extra-deep mattress that is topped with a 3-inch memory foam--no more struggling with that fitted sheet! Not only are these better than what I had been using--they're also cheaper! An excellent value.
We purchased 2" memory foam to go on our king-sized bed. We already bought new pillow-top mattresses but they were still lacking. We were tossing and turning all night. Purchased the memory foam and WOW does it make a difference. It shipped lightening fast. The smell dissipated quickly and it took it's correct form within 2 hours. We slept on it the day it came. Would highly recommend especially if your back hurts! Great price and great quality.
i'll start with the good. The comforter was so warm and cozy, the
perfect amount of warmth and weight. With our old down comforter I
would wake up sweating in the middle of the night, with this one I had
a comfortable night's sleep. And for the price, I felt the quality was
The reason we got this comforter was because my husband is very
allergic to down and so I looked for something down-alternative. After
one night's sleep my husband woke up unable to breathe and now we
cannot use the comforter. I could not figure out why until I noticed
this morning that it says this down-alternative comforter contains
down! I feel this is false advertising. IMO down-alternative means NO
down. This is why I gave it four stars instead of 5. I loved it, but
now we cannot use it. So if you're looking for a down comforter, this
is great! If you are allergic to down do not buy this product.
I chose to wait and use this comforter for 3 months BEFORE I wrote a review, as first impressions of a product don"t always mean quality over time. This comforter is EXTREMELY warm for the amount of weight it has itself. I have kept a cover on it since I bought it as I tend to be a tad perfectionistic about keeping the white cover WHITE! But the comforter itself has an extremely soft&supple material-If I didn't have to worry about washing it, the material is super cozy, alas I opt for a cover! Now the only con is the initial 'down shedding'....if you have EVER owned a feather comforter before, you know that it's inevitable that in the 'infant' years of your comforter, the smallest down feathers are going to make thier way out of the comforter-no matter how high count the cover-these tiny blasted things get everywhere; I am just over 3 months and it's finally slowing down. The total amount shed was probably only a toddler sized hand full of 1-4mm sized down;noticeable only because I have dark plum colored cover&linens-never would have guessed it was even shedding had I not seen them! I have yet to even feel a real feather-the ones that most other comforters have that randomly poke you and you try to grab em&they suck back in---not with this one! Best Buy! The last down/feather comforter I bought I paid three times the price for&had way more problems with by the time 3 months rolled around!
I can't tell you how happy I am with this sheet set. It is not only unbelievably soft and comfy but it also looks gourgeos on the bed. The fit is excellent and the color is exactly as shown. It is definitely worth spending extra for a higher thread count number. In fact I am going to purchase another set for myself.
I started my search for a mattress pad and thought nothing but a feather down mattress pad would give the the comfort I was looking for....but given the reviews of many other EXTREMELY expensive mattress pads, I opted for the the Sleep Philisophy Harmony Mattress Pad and am SO HAPPY with my purchase. There is a noticeable difference in the comfort of my bed now -- light and fluffy...like sleeping on air. I have a King Sized Sleep Number Bed -- the pad fits snug and perfect! The only smell I noticed was when I initially took it out of the plastic bad (I blame the bag, not the mattress). That smell dissapated soon after removing it from the bag, so no worries there. I haven't washed it yet, but I expect it will wash fine as the material appear to be good quality. I highly recomend.
These towels are perfect for the person that doesn't want to use a 6 inch thick bath mat to dry off with. They are not too thick, not too thin. Very luxurious without being so thick that you can't wash more than 4 towels at a time in the laundry or use them to wrap up your hair. When washing for the first time, a TREMENDOUS amount of lint does come out of them in the dryer. I had to stop the dry time midway to clean out the lint trap. I was worried there wouldn't be any towel left! But alas, there were still soft just right towels when the cycle was finished.
My mom had one of these type pillows for over 20 years. I have been looking for this pillow and FOUND IT!!! It will NEVER go flat and will be as comfortable as any pillow you have ever used. It has a springy type feel. Your head sinks in but it is also firm enough to give you good neck support. The pillow has a removable, washable cover also. You will not be dissapointed. I bought two, two years ago and they are like brand new, and I use them every night. It is almost comparable to memory foam without being "hard " like. A must have for anyone any age!!!
These pillows are fantastic! I am one of those sleepers who like to crumple my pillow into a ball and go from there, my husband likes full, fluffy pillow--these do both! AND there is none of the feather trails around the bedroom, they all stay in the pillow and do not stick you in the face or head as you sleep! These pillows don't get flat or lumpy- they fluff up to perfect with just a few turns. I completely recommend these pillows!
You know, websites should be more informative than they are. We just bought a Tempur-Pedic bed with remote-control adjustable mattresses. That means there are two Twin XL mattresses. The two of them together are exactly the length and width of a king-size bed, but just forget about finding sheets for this at your local store. The sheets we got from overstock were 600-count sateen wrinkle-resistant, and they are just super. The more you wash them, the softer and silkier they get.
I've purchased several mattress protectors before and this is the best I've ever seen. It is so sturdy and I LOVE that the zipper is covered by a Velcro flap! It is completely covered and a tight seal. If you are thinking of getting it don't think just get it!
These bathmats are the thickest plushest I have ever purchased. You will not be disappointed if you buy these. One word of caution: They have "quality" tags on them and you can't just pull them off because they are attached to the threads. If you just pull on them, you may start a "run" in them. Take a second to go get a pair of scissors and cut the tag off.
This is an excellent mattress pad @ an excellent price. The cover is 100% cotton, great for sensitive skin. The cover is very thick & helped give a bit of life to our 9 year old mattress. Since it's cotton, it doesn't make any noise & does not itch through the sheets... as my skin cannot tolerate polyester thread.
Once we got a new pillow top that also has memory foam, & found that this mattress pad had so much loft, that we sunk into our mattress too much, so we switched to a thinner mattress pad with less loft... and are keeping this one for when our pillow top mattress gets old. ;-)
We have a 15" mattress & this pad fit over it no problem. If you have a non-pillow top mattress or an older mattress, this mattress pad is excellent. The elastic sides stretch & cling to the underside of the mattress, so the pad does NOT move at all.
Easy to change sheets w/o having to worry about pulling off the mattress pad.
The material and color(gold) are wonderful. It has a great sheen to it and feels real quality. I have other 1500TC Egyptian cotton which is softer but not as heavy/thick as this material. It also seems to get softer with washing. I've found washing this high TC Egyptian cotton not a problem and simply hang it to dry without ironing. Ironing will probably make it more uniform/smooth, but be careful not to burn it !
The size of king size is very generous - I managed to comfortably (no pun intended!) fit a super king size duvet inside this cover - it's that big ! I used Canadian goose down as I don't like to compromise!
Some might think this material feels too hard and stiff (like canvas) but it's warmth and quality are what I want. It's also real heavy material - you'll feel it's weight from when you first receive it, to when you're under it in bed. It makes me think of parachute material?, it's that strong/solid. This material breathes and insulates really well. You won't be cold in bed again with this material. I've bought all my Egyptian cotton from the USA ( I live in the UK) - which shows how good it is, and this Egyptian cotton is the heaviest I've come across.
This material makes you feel like a King/Queen in bed. Life's too short to miss out on this quality. It's a fraction of the price of similar bedding at Harrods (London), probably better quality and there's more color choices. Quality without paying for an exclusive brand name.
These were thinner than I thought they would be...they pillow on the left of the photo looks very plump...but the pillow on the right of the photo is more of what it really is like. Looks great in the sham!!!
This is my first down or down alternative comforter, and I've had it about a week now. My husband and I decided we needed something more cozy than our previous comforter, and we decided we each needed our own comforter so we quit disturbing each other when we roll over at night. We have a king size bed, we are tall (5'10" and 6'4") and we have dogs that we like to cuddle with while we read, so I wanted something big enough for us and our bed and something we could wash. So here is my evaluation of this comforter:
1. It is puffy. Puffier even than the picture. I love it!
2. It is warm. Our house has been around 63 degrees lately (our thermostat is being worked on) and these comforters have been our salvation!
3. It is cozy. It's the kind of comforter that is so thick and cozy that when you lay on top of it you sink into it, and when you're under it, you can sort of burrow in. Our first night using this comforter, my husband said that the cozy factor of our bed increased like 5 times!
4. It is quality. It's not going to fall apart, and given a good cover and normal usage, should last a very long time.
It fits in a regular size duvet cover. I was worried that I would have to spend a lot of money to get a cover big enough to handle this comforter. Not so. And that's actually the first con...
1. It is not as big as the website or the tag on the comforter says. I measured ours and they are 76" wide by 81" long. My guess is that the fabric for the top piece before the stuffing is put in is probably 90" by 88;" then they add the stuffing and it suddenly becomes much smaller. However, it does mean that this comforter fits in a regular sized duvet cover, and we have found that our two queen size comforters are long enough to cover us comfortably, and they cover our king bed nicely.
2. It is loud. It's true. It rustles a lot. We think it sounds cozy, but I can certainly see how it would bother a light sleeper. It sounds quite like an old waterproof sleeping bag does. But again, we think it adds to the cozy factor.
3. It is warm. We live in an area where temps range from 20 below to 110 each year (yeah, I know... what are we thinking!). Last night my husband expressed his concern that this comforter will be too hot in the summers. An easy fix for us - I'll just take the comforter out of the duvet cover, and we'll use the duvet cover by itself (we don't have AC... again, what are we thinking!).
We love the comforters we bought, but I read many of the reviews and was concerned about what might be coming. However, I was prepared to deal with the noise, and I had regular size duvet covers waiting at the house to try out the size of this comforter. If you order it, just be ready for these things - if they'll bother you, don't order it! If you think you can live with those quirks of this comforter, I hope you do order it. We love this comforter, and if there was a way to put 6 stars up for comfort and value, I would have. It's really wonderful and just what we were looking for at a price we could afford!
I've had a 100% down pillow for many, many years which has seen better days and needed replacing. After losing my job in December due to the economy, I've been frugal with my spending. I decided to try non-down pillows from department stores to save some money. After buying two pillows from two different stores and then returning them because they were not comfortable, I decided to check Overstock.com. I really, really wanted another down pillow and the price at the department stores were just too expensive! When I read the ratings on this pillow and saw the fantastic price, I decided to purchase one. Lo and behold, I'm IN LOVE with this pillow!!! I purchased the Jumbo pillow as I'm a scruncher. I like a huggable pillow that I can mold to my head and body and this is THE pillow. If you are looking for a very soft, huggable pillow, this is the pillow for you. I couldn't be happier, plus I'm sleeping so much better!
I purchased these washcloths because I had a several house guest visiting. Everyone commented on how soft they were and that they were the perfect thickness, not too thin and not so thick and bulky you couldn't hold them. I loved them so much, I purchased the Hotel & Spa Bath Towels and Bath Sheets as well. I would certainly recommend all three items!
Bad reviews can scare you away and there are so many variations on all these different types of sheet sets offered on overstock that I just had to take the plunge and pick one (well I order a 350 count one too). I'm a 30 something bachelor so I'm not too versed. I just know good comfort and to have nice sheets (thanks Mom). I ordered the grey cali-king set. My bed is a cali-king and is probably is 15+ inches deep. The sheets come in the typical plastic zipper package. The front tag reads "Andiamo Fine Linens, Ispirato en Italia per la casa, 500 thread count, 100% Egyptian Cotton - Single ply yarn, 15" Deep pockets fits mattresses up to 17" The back does read "Made in India" and "...500 threads per square inch"
With that said, I tried the sheet over my bed first to check the fit and was happy to see elastic all around and that it fit. I then immediately washed the sheets following the instructions. Although I missed the gentle cycle but will do that moving forward. There was very little lint in the lint screen before and looked no different after. The sheet has a nice sheen that remained after washing. Use some type of fabric softner. I think a few of these complainers don't know how to wash clothes. And bathe your skin before hitting the nice clean sheets. Makes no sense hopping in the bed on clean sheets with your skin from a day of activities. After drying on low heat, you will definitely have to iron the wrinkles out if you're a stickler for that. I'm not. I just wanted to go to bed. The sheets are soft people!...and comfortable. I usually am up late but I was knocked out by 930p and missed the rest of MNF after getting in these sheets. They are not thin and not thick. Just right for me, because I am typically warm. I can probably just sleep in them without a comforter even into the winter months for a little while. No pilling ocurred so far.
These are good sheets. Maybe it's helped by my pretty awesome bed and vice versa. You have to take a chance somewhere though. Glad I did. I recommend!
These bath rugs are so thick, so soft and luxurious, you'll feel like you're in a spa, and a very pricey one at that. Be prepared for the weight and heftiness of these rugs; no sliding around with these. I love them. They have been washed and come up fluffy and beautiful; I couldn't be happier. And with the great Overstock price this sort of luxury is absolutely affordable. They are a must buy.
A nice light- to mid-weight waffle cloth. The cut is good: fairly long sleeves, nice high collar, plenty of wrap for a normal build (a little more than I need, actually). I'm just under six feet tall, lean (about 150 lbs) with long arms and legs, and the S-M size works well for me, coming to just above mid-calf (proviso: I haven't washed the robe yet; I will do so in cold water, since if it shrinks in length, or especially in sleeve length, it will be too short).
The topstitching / felling along the collar and other exposed seems uses quite a loose stitch, with nearly a quarter of an inch between running stitches. This may be just right for sewing the waffle-weave cotton, but beware of snags. My late wife had a kimono-style robe of similar waffle cloth, with a twill band edging the front and neck, which used much finer topstitching and made a cleaner and sturdier finish. I do prefer the shawl collar style for myself, though. The inside piecing seams and the binding on the cut edges, which are exposed, is done with an interlock/overcasting machine, leaving a raw finish (like the side seams of a polo shirt). I would have rated the garment more highly had the finishing been better (for example, felled or bound edges along the visible inside seams) but that would have driven the price up substantially. As it is the robe is excellent value at the Overstock price.
Yes I do buy my items by peoples reviews, after reading if this is what I'm looking for, I go right down to the reviews. So to the people who read these, it's a wonderful feeling sliding into these sheets and putting your head down. I'm surprised it's only a 300 thread count, feels better. I got the mocha, maybe could be an expresso, it's a little hard to see because it's between 2 other dark colors. So even after I washed it, all the color was there. Can't wait to pick out next color!
As others have noted, these pillows don't look to be very substantial. Don't be put off by their appearance. Rest assured (pun intended), these pillows are *comfortable*! They provide excellent support. After the first night I slept on them, I woke up the next morning without my usual neck cramps or lower back pain.
Having used them now for over a month, I can say that these pillows were the best purchase I've made in a long while.
I purchased this mattress pad first for myself as I wanted the soft feel of a luxurious hotel bed. This did not disappoint. I was so pleased I bought another one for my parents. They were also very pleased with it. I have had mine now for about 2 years and it has not broken down. Would highly recommend.
Prior to this purchase, I had purchased an OVERSTOCK bulk pack of two 10" Queen sized mattresses for the guest rooms in our new weekend home. We also needed a bed for ourselves so we decided to try these before we purchased a King sized. We liked it! The MEMORY FOAM is very different from what we are used to (a number bed) - much harder but, still very comfortable. And it was not at all hot - a real concern for this 50+ woman. LOL. After the first weekend, we were hooked. I came back to OVERSTOCK to search for the King and found this SELECT-A-FIRMNESS. I ordered the MEDIUM and I have to say that it is worth the extra money - (about $70.00 if you are an Club O member.) There IS A NOTICEABLE difference in the firmness and both of us are glad I paid for the option.
It was packed "tootsie roll style" - like the queens but, in a plastic sock instead of the canvas. It plumped up quickly- we slept on it the first night and, we didn't notice any smell at all, (and I know the smell others write about because I've ordered memory foam pads - they smelled for weeks - and were hot.)
I recommend HIGHLY this mattress. (And my friend who purchased the name brand thinks that this one is just as comfortable as hers.) If you are at all concerned about the firmness, try the SOFT but, keep in mind that the closer the mattress molds to your body - the warmer the mattress will feel. Thank you OVERSTOCK. This mattress is a great value!
IF THIS POST IS TOO LONG, SIMPLY READ THIS FIRST PORTION:IMPORTANT INFORMATION:A mattress of 3? thickness with 3lb density is wonderful for light-average individuals and will provide the comfort/support needed (approx 100-150lbs).A mattress of 3? thickness with 4lb density is ideal for light ? above average individuals, 100-200lbs.A mattress of 4? thickness with 3lb density is ONLY suitable for light individuals, or those who require a very soft mattress. If you are over 150lbs you will begin to lose needed support. If you are over 200lbs this will not provide you with the support you require and may not be appropriate for you.A mattress of 4? thickness with 4lb density is suitable for average ? husky individuals, 150-250 lbs. The extra inch (over 3?) will give you the extra needed cushion so that you don?t sink straight through the mattress and the 4lb density will provide you with the much needed support. </BR> ------------------------------------------------------ I spent a great deal of time doing research on memory foam toppers before deciding to make a purchase. I'm a very meticulous person and I like to evaluate all of my options before selecting an item, specially one over a certain price, and if I would consider it a luxury item.First off, I want to say that I have nothing but praise for this memory foam, and I will attempt to aid any person reading this in deciding whether or not this is the correct item for them.When looking at memory toppers, if you are looking for both comfort AND support, then you should automatically eliminate anything with a depth of 2.5" or lower and 5.5" and higher. (Do not choose 2.5 < or > 5.5).A thin mattress topper of below 2.5" may provide you with a comfortable feeling, but it will not provide you with the actual support you need, if you are only looking for comfort, and not physical benefit/support, then below 2.5" is for you. One caveat to this is if this mattress topper is intended for a child or very light individual, they will depress the visco-elastic material less then a (older) teenager or full grown adult, in that circumstance a mattress topper of 2.5" will be supportive/beneficial.A thick mattress topper at/over 5.5" will be quite deep and you will find that you sink into the mattress (unless you are a child or an extremely light person, below or at 100 pounds, at which point your body will not sink, but you still will not receive the appropriate support for your body). For an average weight adult, you will not find the comfort you want as your movements will be restricted and support will now become uneven as the heavier parts of your body will sink too low and you will be unable to achieve the spinal/body support that is required for a healthy nights rest.------------------------------------------------------The optimal range for thickness of a memory foam mattress is 3? - 4". This range will accommodate the standard adult build (greater then 100lbs and less then 250lbs or approximately 45kg ? 115kg, these figures are products of my own analysis and consumer reports).-If you are a light-average build, 100 ? 200 pounds, you will likely find the comfort/support you require from a 3? thick topper.-If you are average-husky, 150-250 pounds, then you should review a 4? topper to accommodate for ?sinking? into the topper.There is an overlap of 50 pounds in the weight range(s), this is on purpose as you must consider that this topper may not be used by only you, but a significant other as well.*I personally weigh 175lbs, whereas my fiancée rings in between 100-108lbs (please don?t tell her I posted her weight, hahaha). We found that the 3? topper provided excellent support/comfort for our weight ranges and have had nothing but approving responses from friends/families over the comfort of our mattress.---------------------------------------------------------Density is the second factor you must consider.3lb and 4lb is optimal density for the average consumer, someone weighting 100 ? 250 lbs and the density you require will differ based on size, obviously, the more you weigh the greater the density you will need.Avoid exceeding 5lb density as you will begin to sacrifice comfort in the memory foam topper. 5lb density is suitable for husky ? ?large? build individuals 250+ lbs, you would also look at a thicker mattress 4-5? in that weight range.---------------------------------------------------------Brand names: They actually matter for this product! Non-brand name foam mattresses have an indeterminable length of usability for their product. After reviewing an incredible amount of products from different suppliers I have found some of these products are meant to only last 1 ? 2 years, while others can last 5, 10, or 15 years. More often then not, the name brand products last longer. Overstock.com is fortunate that it has a large selection of quality toppers.----------------------------------------------------------Heat Distribution: As this mattress is not a ?vented? mattress it will trap heat a little more then an ordinary mattress topper. I have been using this on warm nights and have not found any discomfort from this small amount of added heat, in fact, as the mattress is able to retain my heat, it softens up a little more the longer I am resting on it, making my rest more on more comfortable as I lay there.----------------------------------------------------------If your partner happens to be a wrestles individual or someone who practically jumps into bed at night, then this mattress topper will help reduce the vibrations you feel and will allow you to sleep better without being disturbed. I speak as a perpetrator of literally ?jumping? into bed every night.-----------------------------------------------------------Washing/Cleaning:Good luck. Don?t get it dirty in the first place! Use a damp rag to wipe off any spills that may get into it. Never lay it directly on your floor (especially carpet), it will grab EVERY piece of dirt/filth there is and you will NEVER get it out.?oops------------------------------------------------------------------Personal Opinion:Overall I couldn?t be happier with my purchase. I haven?t slept this well in years! I have been having a very bad problem with being unable to wake up in the morning for the past few years. I have 3 alarm clocks (yes, 3 individual alarm clocks, 2 of them with 2 separate alarms, so 5 alarms), my cell phone with 3 alarms, and my computer with a morning alarm. In total, 9 alarms go off in the morning, and I have a tendancy of sleeping through ALL of them, even when they are at full blast. I had not been getting a real rest when I slept! To make matters worse, my partner moves around a lot, as such, I haven?t been getting a really good deep sleep in years, with minimal REM cycles?(dreams)?I have been exhausted constantly. All of that changed when I slept on this topper. For the first time in 4 years I am having vivid dreams that I remember when I wake up, this is an indication of a deep sleep, which your body/brain needs to recharge! Additionally, I wake up immediately at the sound of just one alarm at half volume! As I?m no longer thoroughly exhausted I can actually get up in mornings and have been making it on time to all of my appointments, and scheduled events! I can?t believe how much the memory foam changed my life!Do yourself a favor and BUY IT!------------------------------------------------------------------------*1 last note, when the package arrives, OPEN IT IMMEDIATELY and let it decompress/air out. Ours took only 1 hour to fully decompress as it was only in shipping for a few days. The majority of the smell left after a few hours and wasn?t bad to begin with. The odor completely left after 2 days, but was mild enough that we slept on it with no complaint the very first night we received it.
I purchased a set of medium and a set of soft king and updated the bed in my house and at a furnished rental. I am pretty picky about pillows (says my husband), and I loved both sets. I put two med & two soft on our bed and really noticed a difference. The soft are not nearly as soft as you would see in a $100/pillow soft down. If you are looking for the type of soft that you can fold twice or smoosh into a small ball, these are not for you. I have one of those and I couldn't bear to give it to goodwill with the rest of my pillows, but in the month that I've had these, I've not used the old, worn, beloved down pillow even once. These overstock pillows were good to go right out of the box - no need to air them out - no funny smells. They are very puffy when sitting on the bed, but they smoosh down nicely when you lay your head on them. I sleep a combination of side & back. Both firmness levels are great, but I have developed a preference for the soft one. It tucks nicely under my neck while still supporting my head when lying on my back and allowing a comfortable neutral spine. Absolutely zero problems with either of these pillows and I usually reject new pillows within one-two nights.
I use these in every house I stage. They are my little secret - they cost hundreds of dollars at retail outlets here in the city. I would highly recommend these. Super soft, embroidery is good, no loose threads, wash well.
I own a California queen Sleep Number bed and it is very difficult to find sheets to fit my bed. The sheets that the Sleep Number stores sell are so expensive!! The sheets I bought, fit very nicely and at a reasonable price..
I didn't need a pkg of 6 case covers, but I'm so glad to have extras on hand. These are extra-fine quality, thick enough, smooth zippers, perfect fit for my standard pillows, and I've even washed one pair already just to test it and it only got better. I'm so glad I found these on Overstock. Don't let your pillows get that ugly yellow stain, cover them right away - cover them twice if need be - you have extras to put to good use. This is a great deal.
I just recieved this item two days ago and all i can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!! When I read the other reviews it said the Queen size did not fit perfectly, ours did and some mentioned a smell, ours didn't. The first night I could actually lay flat on my back without it going into a spasm like it did on my mattress without the memory foam topper, I was thrilled to pieces! I woke up the next morning without any hip pain and very little back pain and truly felt more rested than I have in months. This product is worth every single penny and I know over time my back will not hurt one bit in the morning. Only problem I do have with this topper is not wanting to get out of bed as its so comfortable now:):)
I bought these for our guest room and when they arrived I was so pleased! I showed them to my husband and daughter, My husband said right away... You have to order more! (He wanted to keep these in our room and have me order more for the guest room) My daughter said she wanted a set of these for christmas! The value is wonderful, the appearance is great, the fabric is what I expected from a feather pillow, I will be putting a pillow protector over it plus a pillow case, the feathers are a bit crunchy, but thats' to be expected IT'S a FEATHER PILLOW!! I am buying 4 more sets of these for Christmas! I highly recommend these pillows!!!
These sheets are soft to touch, the colors I ordered are true to the pictures, especially the Cinnamon. Even if you did not plan to, you should wash them before sleeping on them; there is some shedding and odor of plastic from the packaging. Although they are advertised as wrinkle-resistant, they come out of the dryer VERY wrinkled; if you are one who wants smooth sheets and a crisp hem at the head, you will need to iron to make that happen.
I bought these pillows for value, product design, and allergy-avoidance characteristics. I was drawn by their puffy appearance and other reviews I read. I was not disappointed. It took a few days to get used to the thickness of the pillows. They are wonderfully easy to mold into the the right shape each night and give themselves to my bidding rather than dictating how I must sleep to accommodate them. As the weeks have passed, I like them even more, if possible, than when I got them. These pillows have a very luxurious, old-fashioned, comforting feel to them.
I am glad overstock gives us the options to write a review on items purchased because 90 percent of my ordering is online and I do pay attention to the reviews, in fact a bad review if too many of the same complaint makes my decision on my purchase. As far as these sheets, they are wonderful! I remember reading reviews and the only thing a few people commented on in any negative way is that they wrinkle, I was thinking to myself you have got to be kidding me!! We just moved into a home and trying to watch money, my brother had given me his California King bed, which meant buying sheets, comforter the whole nine yards! Knowing that a good sheet at that size was going to run me at least 80 dollars, I went to overstock.com. I got two sets of these sheets for under the price of one set at other stores. The color matched perfectly with the picture on the site. As far as wrinkling, well I washed them before I put them on my bed, they did not get wrinkled until I laid on them, lol
Thank you again overstock.com! I will continue to buy from you!
Item is exactly as described. We are using it with a memory foam mattress (11in?) My sister suggested it after she bought it, and we are very pleased with the purchase. Doesn't have the plastic, "crinkly" feel like I think of with something water-resistant. And we got it just in time - one of our dogs actually urinated a little on the bed (due to a UTI) a day or two after we purchased it and it worked! No urine seeped through and it cleaned up beautifully. I don't know what the going rate is for these sorts of things, but so far it has proven to be worth the money.
I brought BED BUGS home from a vacation! How dreadful. However with an agressive campaign and the VERY excellant mattress cover "Bed Bug Blocker" I have rid my home of these creatures! Hint: always leave your luggage outside in the hot sun or cold air for at least 3 days before bringing into your home.
This Duvet Cover is VERY Soft! We just LOVE the materia (my husband is a fabric snob) :) l - but at the same time it might be a little too soft, as the comforter does not stay in place. I'm not yet certain whether it is the cover or if our comforter is too small, but either way it slides. I think we may end up purchasing a larger conforter in the future, but for now we will just have to "deal" with the slipping and sliding.
If you're looking for something that feels like silk, is light as a feather, but keeps you warm - this is the blanket for you. I got it in white, and the white is so pristine, makes my white sheets look cream. So if you don't want that look, pick another color. This is a great blanket.
When they arrived...2 king sized pillows arrived in a box that looked like it held one standard size pillow, so right away I thought no way, they sent the wrong thing...but they blew out of the box when i opened it, and then I figured they were supposed to be "extra firm"...how could they be? Well, they are, and they don't lose their shape. Amazing pillows. Tried everything else, so i figured why not try gel? Well, I wasnt disappointed! I really like them. I like firm pillows but don't like when they hurt your head...these don't do that...they are firm AND soft, if that makes sense. So, they are quite comfortable. I would highly recommend them!!!
