I LOVE these sheets but they don't last long. I have a regular size Queen mattress (i.e. not an oversized thick mattress). These fit great for 6 months but after several washings they shrunk and when I went to put them on today one of the corner seams ripped out completely they were getting so tight. I've bought so many different "oversized" queen sheets over the past few years and none of them have lasted. They all shrink and all eventually tear. I'm now going to order the King sheets and hope they eventually shrink to a Queen size. And if you're wondering how often I washed these sheets, I rotated them with another set so they were getting washed only 2 times per month so they lasted about 12 washings. I do have another set that I bought along with this one and they are still doing o.k. but they are getting tighter as well as they have shrunk too.
