I was looking for bedding for my son who was going off to college. I found this set and thought it was just what my son wanted. We received it quickly, but soon noticed that the sheets were striped (red, black and white). This was not stated on the description from Overstock. Then, when we tried to put the mattress cover on, it was too short. (Not twin xl) I had to make a special trip to the store to purchase another pad. The cost to ship back the too short mattress pad would be more than the pad is worth, so I threw it in the garbage. The comforter color was fine, but the quality is not the best. The towel set was fine, as were the pillow and sham, although all the material was scratchy. Not really a bargain for me.
