Finally! A sheet set that claims to have deep pockets that actually does have deep pockets! Yay! I have been disappointed countless times by sheet sets that claimed to have deep pockets that would fit mattresses up to 14, 16 and 18 inches deep that just would not stay on the bed (even though my bed was 14" thick), but these do. I love Egyptian cotton because it holds it's colors well (if you wash it properly) and it keeps it's shape pretty well too. I love a high thread count because anything below 400 is just too rough on the skin until you've washed it 100 times. These said they were Egyptian cotton and 650 thread count, but did not mention the weave. I assumed they would be a sateen weave which is nice and soft, but can be clingy and for some it holds heat too well. When I removed these from the package I was skeptical because, while they were really soft, they were so shiny and almost satin like I thought we would be sliding all over the place. Fortunately, that is not the case. After an initial washing some of the shininess was gone. The sheets fit great on the bed, they are super soft, cool, comfortable, not clingy and not slippery either. They are perfect! The packaging does not mention what weave these are either, but I am going to by doubles in several colors now that I have found sheets that I am satisfied with.
I have the 14 inch gel memory foam bed plus a mattress pad under the fitted sheet in this set and still have room. I love that i no longer have to put the corners of the fitted sheet back 'on' the mattress every time i move. The sheets do wrinkle easy so pulling them out of the dryer quickly is a good idea. Other than that i love them. The charcoal color is perfect.
I ordered these to fit my 14 inch mattress and when I got them I washed them first and they barely fit on the mattress. I don't know if they shrank or what but if You have a matresss that's more than 14 inches good luck...
I just received my order and at first review they look great. I washed them and dried the fitted sheet and why people complain about wrinkles amuses me. They are no more wrinkled than you would expect. The top Sheet & cases I line dry and press - they were fine. One interesting item is that the pillow case hems were not stitched all the way around. The back hem was finished but not sewen to keep it secure - strange - I can fix that. I was looking for a pocket that would be less than 10-12 inches but these were just over 14 inches. It looks that in order to have a smooth fitting sheet I will have to adjust these as I did another set. At this point because we have not slept in them I am only giving them a 4 star.
