When we bought our extended queen-size bed, I didn't think it would be that hard to get good sheets to fit the extended size. Went to a ton of stores and always left empty handed. I am reluctant to buy anything like this online, but I am glad I did. These are great sheets, and have come through the wash fine. Wish the color selection were wider that the few choices offered, but that's just wishin' and not really a complaint.
