When I first opened them, I wasn't sure About them. They looked really shiny and I hadn't realized that they had so much polyester in them but I decided to keep them. They looked better once I washed them. They are soft to sleep on and fit our deep mattress without riding up. They are a little slippery and sometimes the top sheet and coverlet slide off. Overall, they weren't what I expected but I am pleased that the polyester doesn't make them hot to sleep on.
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.
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.
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 got these the other day, washed them and put them on the bed right away. They are so comfortable and soft. I read all the reviews for so many sheet sets I was growing weary and finally settled on these. I'm glad I did as they are the best set of sheets I've ever bought...they are really cheap in price considering the quality and I could never get these sheets at a local store for this price. I'm going to buy another set soon. The olympic queen size works well with my thick pillow top mattress and memory foam mattress pad. It's still a tiny bit too big for the bed but they tuck in nicely and don't slide like sateen sheets do. I'll never buy sateen again after having these. I like these much better and I don't feel like I'm going to slide off the bed! :)
these sheets are really from egyptian grown cotton , and are made in India . they do not have any weird chemical smell to them (as the ones made in china do) . they are possibly hand sewn/made . the sheets are soft , and the peach color is very pleasant . (rare to find egyptian cotton in peach color , or even a nice pink)
the only caveat is - fabric somewhat thin . it is possible they may rip after some use . i have returned them , would like something more durable .
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!
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 was a little skeptical buying this from reading a couple of the reviews, but I have bought several things from Overstock in the past and have not been disappointed except for one occasion because the color was not true-to-color as pictured. I just got this today, washed it, and put my oversized comforter (which I also bought from this sitet) today. The fabric is soft and quality is good for the price; I ordered linen and it is true-to-color as pictured. If you are expecting the same microfiber texture as the microfiber sofas, I think you will be disappointed. It is microfiber but it looks and feels similar to sateen sheets, maybe not as shiny. I'm happy with my purchase.
Just bought King bed with ergo motion for each side, so in reality, two twin mattresses to make King bed. This set comes with a pair of the necessary Twin XL fitted sheets, flat King sheet and 2 King pillowcases at an amazing price. Very nice quality, seems like higher thread count. Like the damask stripes and love the light blue color.
Other reviews were a bit misleading, I thought, because the sheets are soft enough, but not amazingly soft. Just average on softness. They seem like the type that will soften over time. They also do not wrinkle in the dryer, which makes them look great! We have a Simmons Olympic queen that's about 8 years old. Fit great!
Finally, I've found them. I like a crisp, smooth sheet. Not necessarily "soft" like flannel, but smooth. A friend's mom told me to look for percale sheets. It is the weave of the fibers that makes a difference. Not only the thread count.
When you first open these, they will feel a bit stiff. Just wash and dry them, they relax and feel great on the bed. They remind me of the sheets we had when I was growing up, but have never been able to find in stores. This is the second set I've purchased from O.com and hope they continue to carry them.
