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 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.
Felt the need the leave a review after sorting through countless contradictory posts about not only these, but all the bedding on here in general. Yes, everybody has different tastes about their sleep preferences, but let me give a neutral review. They are definitely not "like sleeping on burlap." They are very smooth and crisp, although like all other cotton sheets they get a little softer after each wash. They are pretty lightweight, you can see light through them if held up to one. Unless you are sleeping without a blanket though, this shouldn't be a problem and is actually pretty great on those hot summer nights when you kick your heavy comforter off and just have these. I happen to love these sheets because of the crisp feel, but if you're looking for something more akin to a blanket, heavy and velvety soft, then these are not for you. But the cool, crisp and smooth feel makes me never want to get out of bed in the morning! Not to mention I got them in king size for less than $100, which is an amazing price for this great set of sheets.
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
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.
Finally, a extra deep pocket sheet that actually fits my thick mattress with a featherbed on top and still had lots of room. The quality of these sheets is excellent. These are a heavy, soft sheet, very large so have lots of room. They do recommend washing in cold water but with the size of these sheets I don't see how they could shrink so much in hot water that you couldn't use them. They have a thick elastic band around them and are made to actually fit the corners. I plan to order another set. I see where these sheets are well over *** & I can see why. The feel is amazing. They are a thick, soft, luxurious sheet, heavier than most so might take some people time to get used to that. But these sheets will last for years where other, cheaper sheets wear out. Also high thread count sheets get softer with age.
I literally searched and search and searched the internet to try and find good quality, soft, yet cool, deep pocket sheets, I read review after review until I finally settled on these. I was a bit skeptical about what I would be getting (seeing the price difference compare to other sites) but I am soooo happy I made the decision to get these, They met every requirement I was needing. They are so soft and cool to the touch (even before washing). I have a memory foam bed topper that gets so hot in the summer so I was looking for some sheets that would stay cool without the satin feel (I hate how I tangle up in thin satin sheets). Last night was my first night sleeping with these and I can't remember a time I have ever slept so good (well not since I've had children anyways) These have the extra deep pockets and fit my pillow top Cal-king bed with my 3" memory foam pad perfectly, There is elastic all the way around so it stays on the bed all night. The color was a bit off (I ordered sage but its more of a mint green) but that doesn't really matter to me. I was buying for comfort not color. I have to stay I am so pleased with the quality and feel of these sheets. They are the perfect thickness. They definitely have quality you have to feel to believe.
I searched for at least a month to find a down alternative comforter that would be fluffy with thread count of at least 500. I was excited when I found this. I wanted an alternative to down because I didn't want to deal with the feather pricking my skin and the feathers possibly coming out. This product is just that. The filling is pretty consistent throughout. It didn't take many hours once I took the comforter out of the package for it to fluff up. It is very warm. I like to turn my air on and snuggle under the comforter. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking. I purchased because it was from the Hotel Grand Collection. I am thoroughly impressed and satisfied.
I finally have comfort and can sleep without my sheets ripping off my mattress. These sheets are truly comfortable, soft, deep pockets, and rich in color (purchased black). The sheets are exactly what I was hoping for considering I also purchased a mattress topper (also very comfy). Thanks Overstock, I am sleeping on cloud nine and will order another sheet set once the blue becomes available.
I bought the king size comforter and love it. The construction is great quality with good stitching all around. The piping is done just right and give it a perfect look if you were to use it w/o a duvet. The fabric is soft and smooth like 700 tc should be, and the baffle design keeps the down evenly distributed. The size is just right; it hangs over the sides about 8 inches and the foot about 6 inches. I bought a duvet to keep the comforter crisp white and protected as I have an indoor/outdoor cat who sleeps inside and brings in a yard full of dirt at the end of the day and it fit perfectly. I actually bought the duvet 2 inches narrower than the comforter and it fills it out perfectly with no excess fabric on any edge. Perfect! The weight is perfect as well. You don't feel as though it's so heavy you can't move, but you don't feel like you're laying under some inferior light-weight summer throw either. A great purchase.
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 have to admit, I was skeptical when I ordered this comforter. I went to ***** and looked at several heavyweight down comforters but they were all priced at $350 and above, so naturally I wondered why this heavy weight comforter would be such a steal (even though I love, LOVE Overstock.com). I read a couple of the bad reviews and thought that those instances were probably pure accidental bad quality items and it wasn't worth stressing over, so I ordered one and crossed my fingers. When it came in the mail, I immediately put it on my bed and saw that it was very light feeling, thus perhaps it's not as warm as it claims to be? So that night I put on my long sleeved sleeping shirt and got ready to get up in the middle of the night for more blankets. I should tell you I'm a 2 comforter type of girl. I get cold really easily always have 2 comforters except when it's 90 outside. I live in Seattle, where in the winters it gets to be about 30's most of the time, so not freezing, but it's no Florida.
Much to my surprise, I was actually hot the next morning! This comforter is so warm and cozy. It's like it heats up around you~! It's lightweight quality allows you to sleep comfortably so you don't feel like you're being buried in cotton. Pair this with a comfy duvet cover and you're all set for the Winter! I love, love, love it and think that this is a MUST HAVE for every bedroom!
I am extremely happy with my purchase of a Laura Ashley Comforter Set from Overstock.com! The set was received quickly and in excellent condition. The set looks simply beautiful in our bedroom, and the price was great!
Originally purchased a king size blanket for the master bedroom, and loved it so much I purchased the queen size for one of our guest bedrooms. As I washed each blanket before laying out on the beds, I cannot honestly say whether or not they shrank. I do know, however, that each blanket is large enough to tuck at least 8" under the bottom and there is a 9"+ overhang on each side. (This is great, as other full/queen blankets purchased in the past had very little 'extra' to tuck under after washing.)
Love the feel and texture...so soft and does not easily snag as most cotton blankets will.
I LOVE this duvet cover. I am a fan of upscale hotels, and this cover makes me feel like Im sleeping in a *** every night! It is seriously chic and stylish, soft and high quality. I have other *** covers that cost the same as this and they are only 300 threadcount, and for the same price you can get this 1000 threadcount set. I LOVE IT. The only complaint is that it doesnt have internal ties to keep the duvet in place, so I just sewed some shoelaces in each inside corner and it works like a charm! I am IN LOVE WITH MY BED. YOU MUST BUY THIS!!
I bought these sheets hoping for durable, soft-not satin soft, but not crisp. These are perfect after about 6 washings. They are very heavy sheets. I usually sleep with just them and a light blanket and it is perfect. I don't feel like they are going to tear when I put the fitted sheet on the corner-durable. I bought the sage and the color is true. If you give them a try, I don't think you will be disappointed.
Rating this was hard for me. The good- it is comfortable. Especially if you like a soft topper. You sink right into this. I am very happy with the comfort. The bad- I don't think the quality is that good. If you grab ahold of it to move it too hard it will rip pieces off of it. I guess you could say its somewhat fragile, which I wasn't expecting. So, that being said, I am also concerned with how long this will last without smashing down flat and becoming useless. It doesn't seem like much more than a piece of soft foam to me. I would not label this memory foam, it is mostly just a piece of 4" soft foam. Don't confuse this with a Tempurpedic type material, cause I owned a Tempurpedic and this is nothing close to that material. If you want to add softness to your bed, and don't mind the price, I would say buy it, it will add comfort. If your big on quality and are looking for a true memory foam topper, you might not be satisfied with this. I just hope its not flattened out in a few months. If it retains its shape and comfort I'll be very satisfied with it, in the mean time I will be concerned.
This bedspread is beautiful. It fits my king size bed perfectly! Goes all the way to the floor and is not skimpy at all! It's fluffy and a pretty blue. I've shopped all over for a chenille spread and can't find one in any of the big box or specialty stores. Overstock.com has a nice selection of these spreads in different patterns at a really nice price.
This is a great robe, and so comfortable. Ar first try-on I had decided it was too big for me, but later when I tried it again I loved it. .It is great quality, and I'm sure I'll be wearing it for a long time to come. After a shower in the morning it feels great to slip it on before doing my hair etc. and i use it when I want something comfortable in the evenings. Highly recommend it. Great price, great product.
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!!!
Bought these sheets in sage and think they are great. The color is what I expected. The material quality exceeded my expectations. I have the 8" Serta memory foam mattress that I bought from this site. I also have a 2" memory foam topper that I put on it. WIth the mattress and topper combined the sheets fit very well. They fit the corners very nice and they don't feel like they are about to rip as some others have. Fitted sheet fits the matress surface and corners tightly. Flat sheet is long enough to tuck deep under the footboard end of the mattress and still pull all of the way up to the top edge near the headboard. After 1st wash they were still a little too rough. After 2nd washing they had just a hint of newness / roughness. After 3rd wash they were comfortable. After 4th wash they are perfect. Definitely some of the most comfortable sheets I have slept on anywhere....ever! I don't think I would consider sheets with a lower thread count than these, especially for the insignificant difference in price compared to the several years of use that I will get out of them. Have no fear of these sheets after a few washes. Anyone that would complain about the comfortability of these sheets after washing out the newness probably has a life-long predisposition towards complaining about everything in life... those people annoy me.
The reviews I read on several dozen other products did not compare to the positive reviews on this one and I was not let down.
I love the feel of real down comforters, but I have dogs who sleep in the bed so the convenience of machine washing was necessary (in case of accidents). This product arrived a little squished, but with fluffing it was great and it feels the closest to real down as any alternative I have encountered before. I honestly wouldn't be able to tell the difference if I weren't told! It has held up, too, after a couple of washes, which I was pleased with! A warning, though, is the king size (what I purchased) barely fits in my regular sized washer.
I agree with previous reviewers that getting the size larger than needed is a good idea. I have a queen bed, bought a king and it hangs over the edge quite a bit, but I believe the queen would have been too small.
This is our second one - we bought a too hard mattress for home and this saved it - then we had to move temporarily for my husband's job and moved into a very nice furnished apartment - but we were there 4 months when I went home for a visit (slept in our bed @home) and realized just how awful the bed at our temp apt was - bought another one of these and I am sleeping great!! You could put this thing on the floor and sleep great! Didn't smell - unrolled it at 3m and put it on bed at 6pm - slept on it that night. Can't say enough - you won't regret this buy! Even my husband who like firm - loves this - I like soft and it is great for us both.
This duvet cover is great. It is very thick, and very heavy... which should be expected for 1200 thread count. After a couple of washes, the duvet is very soft, and luxurious. My favorite feature of the duvet cover is the fact that there is no seam at the top of the cover. There is an openeing on the bottom (which closes with buttons) and two seams up the side, but none at the top. Which means, this is one piece of fabric. Not "top and bottom" pieces that are sewed together around the edges. Love it.
These beautiful sheets are sooooo silky. They are very drapable, a quality that my husband and I love. The color and satin sheen are perfect for what I wanted and do not wash out. They are light, so are perfect for warm weather, but I will use them in cool weather also. I like the fact that they are a rayon made of bamboo. They washed wonderfully and came out of the dryer pretty much unwrinkled. What a change from the 100% cotton sheets (which I also love). If you are a "cotton person" you might be a bit taken aback by the "liquid" drapability of this fabric. Very comfortable! We feel like this set is luxury itself. A great price, too. I have purchased expensive very high thread-count cotton sheets and have enjoyed them, but I LOVE THESE SHEETS, and will order more.
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.
Made by Home Environments, these sheets are the best bed linens I've ever owned. I now have four sets and two sets have held up extremely well after two years of regular use. The other two are newer but I expect the same. The softness is incomparable, they're durable and haven't frayed at all, they haven't shrunk after two years of washing and drying, and there is no pilling. Deep pockets fit 18" high mattress perfectly. Highly recommend this brand. I did purcahse another less expensive brand on O.com and they were horrible. Kind-size shrunk after first wash and could not be used so they went into the rag bag. This brand is definitely worth the extra money.
There are a lot of reviews of this, so I will start with a point that no one has yet made. Please take a moment to consider, and even look up the abusive treatment of geese to produce those luxurious down comforters everyone is so hooked on. I dare you to watch a video of it. Now think for a moment of sheep that are made more comfortable through annual shearing--their parasites controlled, the mats removed for the hot summer months. The ancient tradition of using goose down wasn't even similar to the travesty we practice today. I have pet geese, and I won't participate in this cruelty any more, though I've owned countless goose down comforters and pillows over the years in my ignorance. You may be a vegetarian, and I applaud you for it. I am not. I believe in humane use of farm animals. Commercial use in this country is not humane. Now on to the comforter! I wanted to sleep under it in warm weather before reviewing, but then thought I might be waiting a bit, since we live in the mountains and experience cool nights year-round. It is far more cozy and comfy than down. It stays put, looks neat, etc. Don't let the "lack of loft" fool you! It is lightweight and feels much like down--only better. You will love it. I am positive.
We love this comforter!!! I have never purchased a down comforter before. We really did our homework and poured over the internet for hours and even weeks before we made our purchase. I highly depended on the reviews from other customers on Overstock to make up my mind. Not only was this a fabulous price for a higher thread count, higher fill and baffle box design...It is a far better bargain than any of the department stores can come close too. Most of the down comforters that I have found in other stores were literally half the thread count and fill level-and more than double or triple the price. It looks beautiful on our king sized bed and is SO warm. We live in Massachusetts and even for us, it does the job. I actually think that it may be too warm to use year round, but that is fine with me. It really feels like you are sleeping in a cloud. The first night that we used it, my husband overslept his alarm by 45 minutes! He NEVER does that. My kids all love snuggling into the covers in the morning too. The only issue I have was that it doesn't completely fill our duvet cover, but that may be the actual cover's fault! It hangs over generously on our bed, so I wouldn't doubt that it is oversized. I have not found any issues with the fill being unevenly distributed. Our comforter is distributed nicely. All in all, we are so happy that we made this purchase. I now think that everyone needs a down comforter!
I was skeptical because there were no reviews when I bought this topper, but I am so glad I did!! My foam mattress was very firm and only 8 inches deep so it looked strange on my bedframe. I was looking for something to add depth and make my bed a little softer. This topper is heaven. It is perfect for those that like the firmness of a foam mattress with the plushness of a pillowtop. However, it can be a little warm. It is not a problem for me, because I am naturally cold blooded, but even I have noticed it being somewhat hot especially on hot summer nights in Texas.
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.

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.
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.
Here's a little backstory.
My boyfriend hates sheets. I have tried cotten sheets, egyptian cotten, flannel, jersey, you name it, he hates it. he claims they get tangled and make him hot and sweaty and uncomfortable.
I had a friend reccomend bamboo sheets to me and after reading the reviews here i purchased these. I ordered the gray and found they were a nice neutral color that works well in my dark wood bedroom. When I recieved them washed them right away in cold water and didnt have any problems with them bleaching out or losing color which some other reviewers had. I put them on the bed and long story short, both my boyfriend and i LOVE them. We live DC so it's pretty warm out and he says they keep him cool but still covered. I think they're increadibly soft and really luxurious. My mother came to visit and she too loved them (and everyone knows the mom seal of approval is the highest award of them all)
so, long story short, these are a great buy. The only negative thing about them is they wrinkle very easily which doesnt bother me in the slightest but I thought i would offer a heads up if that's something that bothers you.
I have never written a review and i buy online all the time. this blanket came directly from the baby jesus. buy it if you get hot. im starting a band called mentopause blanket because of this. the 100% cotton is perfect. so soft. really really soft. the color is AMAZING.
This is a high quality product - it feels good, fits well on the mattress, and stays put. Solid construction, double seams, and the sides are deep enough to completely envelope my pillow-topped mattress - there are at least two inches tucked underneath the mattress all the way around so it doesn't slip at all.
This is an amazing down comforter and by far the nicest one that I have owned or ever seen. When I unpacked it there wasn't any bad smell and within a day or so it fluffed up so much but is fairly light in weight. I would recommend this if you sleep in a faily cool or cold enviornment because it gets VERY warm and retains body heat very well especially if you are sharing the bed...You might get pretty warm. I think this will be great in the winter time, but right now in the summer I have to keep my AC at 65 degrees so I dont roast in my sleep. The fabric is VERY nice and has a very silky and soft feel that my girlfriend and I love! Like other reviews said its appearance by itself is so nice that you dont have to put a Duvet cover on it, though I did so it doesnt get dirty. As much as I hate winter I am looking forward to sleeping with this comforter. AMAZING and great price!
We've been sleeping on this topper for six months now. We put it on top of our memory foam mattress, and it's the perfect setup. Of course what someone finds comfortable is such a highly individualized thing, but for us, this topper has been about the most perfect thing we've ever slept on.
It's perfectly supportive. We tested the topper by itself on the floor for a couple of nights when we first got it, and we were still really comfortable - it's only 2 inches thick and we could not feel the floor underneath us. Really cool. I'm 6'6" and weigh 260 lbs, and this topper distributes my weight nicely. It stays strong and "springy" when I'm on it - it does not 'cave in' as I am accustomed to most mattresses doing under my bulk. Weight is equally distributed and there are no pressure points. I do have back problems that have improved since we got this thing. I no longer wake up stiff and sore. A huge plus.
It also sleeps very cool. We're in Texas, so even with air conditioning you're struggling to stay cool some nights (also, memory foam mattresses are notoriously hot). This topper does not allow your body heat to accumulate under you - we've never awakened sweating or suffered any heat discomfort.
For the first month or so, there was a very distinct latex smell coming from the topper. The sheets would end up getting permeated with the smell and we'd have to wash them a bit more frequently to keep it from getting too obnoxious. As long as we were diligent with the washing, the smell wasn't so powerful that we couldn't sleep on it and enjoy it. This might be different for other folks. I wanted to point it out, but it wasn't enough of an issue for me to deduct a star from the rating.
When I first started comparing latex toppers my eyes popped a bit at the expense of some of these things. Six months into it, I have zero regrets about spending what I did on this one - wouldn't hesitate to get another some day (but I have a feeling this one's going to last us a long time). If you get this and have never slept on a latex topper before, you might find that it feels foreign and weird. It took a week or so for us to get accustomed to this much support. But now, I couldn't live without it. Not too firm, not too soft. Cool, supportive, and just right.
I've had these towels now for about 2 weeks. They really are quite comfortable. I'm rather tall, and to have the towels be long enough to cover my lower extremities is a plus. All towels in the set are plush. One note, WASH THESE IMMEDIATELY AND ALONE. I thought I washed 3 light brown cats when I pulled my light load out of the washing machine. And drying didn't immediately remove all the lint. Great Product though.
I have never been disappointed w/Croscill. This pattress pad is on my bed on top of a 4" thick mattress topper and it still fits the mattress just fine. It held up just fine through the wash and I don't have to worry about pulling it tightly at the corners, no ripping has happened. I would recommend it and it was a good price.
This robe is beautiful, well made, luxury.... Thank goodness I am losing weight, however. I am currently a size 16/18 female and although it does wrap around me it really doesn't have adequate girth so that it stays closed, especially at the hips and the hem. So buyer beware, L/XL does not translate to ladies XL. I would estimate it is more like a ladies M/L
Our light down blanket was too warm on our memory foam mattress. We were sweating at night unless it was really really cold.I bought the king blanket in the grey - it is a very soft pretty color, and quite large, even on our cal king mattress. Which means there is plenty to tuck in. It is cooler than the down, but still warm. I have added a very thin quilt on the coldest nights (my husband doesn't need the extra layer). I don't know how it will be in the summer yet, and I haven't washed it yet. But so far I am very pleased with it.
I invested in a good quality mattress set, but had trouble getting comfortable and changing sleeping postitions was difficult. My new 400 ct. pima mattress pad arrived sooner than I expected. It was better quality than any mattress pad I've bought before. It washed very well. And it fits my deep Temperpedic mattress set. I couldn't believe the difference it made in the comfort of the mattress. It completed it. Finally, I can move around and change positions and don't wake up with my sheets wadded up. It's like adding oil to a dry pan before cooking. Nothing sticks anymore. I love it.
We have ordered these sheets before and love them. The issue this time is that I ordered white sheets and they are NOT white. They are an eggshell kind of color that look dingy when we put a white pillow case from another set with it.
