I had searched for sheets for our olympic queen size bed we bought years ago believing the idea would be a sweeping hit only to find the size was not marketed well and has not taken off. Olympic sheets are not found at my local stores. That said, when I found a higher count sheet that I could justify the price, I bought them. Waited patiently for them to arrive only to not be able to get them onto the bed! Three corners does not a fitted sheet make. The color was nice and they seemed they would be a soft place to land at the end of the day but I would never know. Had to return them. The idea of having to pay for return shipping on an item that did not meet the standard (on a basic level) is aggravating and will be a consideration of future purchases. I cannot speculate on long term wear or shrinkage as, by miracle would have it I wanted to be sure they fit before washing them the first time!
