You get what you pay for right? Although I think these pillow cases will hold up well (they seem sturdy enough) there are several things not quite right about them. First of all, I ordered "standard" sized cased for my "standard" sized pillows. They are clearly KING sized. Perhaps they just thought bigger was always better and went with it. It makes for about a foot and a half of extra material hanging off the edge of either pillow. Also, the material is quite rough. Scratchy even. Luckily we have other pillows with soft/smooth cases that we use to actually sleep on and these are more for decorative purposes and "loft"- but I wouldn't like to sleep on them. However, for the price and what I needed, they worked... ok. And that's about it.
