My daughter is in her first apartment and is living on a tight budget, working as many hours waiting tables, interning at a music production company and full-time student at NC State. We have always teased that I am the queen and she is my princess, so to give her a bit of luxury I decided that satin sheets would make for a bit of pampering after a long day of study and work! She loves them and the best part is these sheets stay on the bed, unike most satin sheets! If you've ever had satin sheets, you know that by the end of the night most of your covers are in the floor and you're on a bare mattress, but not with these! Also, the pillowcases really help keep your hair from tangling during the night, and if you have curlers or a 'set' that you want to keep for a few days then these do the trick! I recommend them highly and will be buying them for my own beds and as gifts for weddings/birthdays for friends!
