I was a little leery after reading all the reviews but was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package. Yes, you have to iron everything but I can't imagine receiving this many items with no wrinkles in it! The colors are very pretty together and really make my guest bedroom stand out. I've washed the sheets only once but so far so good. As far as it fitting a standard queen size bed, no problems there either! Honestly, this is not a room that gets much use but if you are looking for something to really spice up a spare bedroom, this is the set!
