We have a deep pillow top Cal King bed and in purchasing this sheet set, we've ended up with sheets that are practically too big for our mattress...and I couldn't be more THRILLED! The fitted sheet is huge and while the elasticized keeps the sheet in place, it stretches enough to easily put on the bed (unlike many others with which we had to fight to get them over the corners every time). The flat sheet is also generously sized and falls past the bottom of the mattress. I love being able to tuck everything in for once! We also like the dot pattern along the top hem of the flat sheet and on the pillowcases...a nice change from plain sheets. We have used and washed/dried the set twice so far and I'm very happy with how well it washes. They do wrinkle up if they aren't folded straight out of the dryer but that's my fault, not the sheets'! I bought four sets of sheets with this order (two of this kind and two of another) and instead of returning some of them like I normally do, I'm keeping the two unopened ones around for when we need them again down the road.
