I bought a white set of these sheets and they are AWESOME! They feel so smooth and they fit my oversized pillowtop queen perfectly. So since I enjoyed the sheets so much I decided to buy them in black. Well, they are sort different, the fitted elastic sheet seems to be a slightly smaller size, it still appears to fit (but not as good). Also, they don't feel as soft and smooth as the white ones. I'm not sure why... Anyways, they are a really good purchase for the money and if you have an oversized mattress.
