I don't know what all the negative feedback is because I found the sheets (two sets) pretty darn great for the price. Yes they are thin but the pocket depth fits over my 7 inches of foam and 5 inches of mattress topper(s) with room to spare. The flat sheet has enough material that it doesn't fall short on both sides like some of my more expensive sheets do. I washed the sheets before using them and they washed well; I didn't find the elastic to be problematic but if it did I'd just safety pin or sew where there a tear to make them fit tighter but so far so good. I think for the money they are a bargain and unless they fall apart in my hands (doubtful) I'll just say they're a pretty good deal and, after all, you get what you pay for but sometimes you get a little more!!
