I have a hard time finding sheets that will fit my queen size mattress, due to the thickness - pillow top. These sheets are great. They are very comfortable, cool in the summer, the elastic straps on the fitted sheet guaranteed that the sheet would fit although I find that the straps were not needed, which is nice. The cover sheet is oversized so it drapes nicely on both sides, plenty of cover. I love these sheets and will buy more. The yellow is a soft butter yellow, not too bright but beautiful.

Great Sheet Set
This is a great sheet set and a fine value for the price. This the third set we have purchased.

High recommend for tempurpedic mattress
We have a tempurpedic mattress which is very thick. We struggled to find a fitted sheet that would stay on, and tried all kids of straps and locks, but nothing worked. Ordered these sheets and they stay on! Highly recommend. Before I ordered these sheets I struggled every night with the fitted sheet. I'm going to buy several more to have a back up.

Just received them and decided to put them on the bed (without washing first) as they are so lovely and soft - we'll see later how they measure up after washing and drying. A really good night's sleep on these silky and well fitting sheets.

Still not sure..
I am at a bit of a cross roads here. I read a few reviews before I ordered my sheets. As a result, I double washed them and used twice the amount of fabric softener. So, the definite chemical smell was almost gone. I trust that it will be completely gone after another "treatment". However, the sheets themselves aren't that soft and I am hoping they will smooth out with time. The fit is great, and I am hoping for the best in a few weeks!

ALMOST fit my older mattress
I've been totally disgusted with the fact that I can't buy contour bottom sheets for an older "standard" mattress, i.e., one that is NOT 18" deep or 16" deep plus a "comfort pad." Contour sheets these days are HUGE, and it's almost impossible to have a smooth bottom sheet if you don't have an extra deep mattress. The clerk at VCS recommended these sheets, bless her! They do fit better than any I've bought in five years -- until they've been slept on for a night. Then they stretch out and sag a bit, but definitely not as badly as the extra-depth ones. Gone are the days when you could bounce a coin on the tight bottom sheet of an older mattress. But I will buy a second set of these because the fabric is wonderful, and they ALMOST fit my mattress!!

Recommendation with warnings
These sheets are of great quality. I was hoping they would really hug my mattress and lie smoothly. I do have old fashioned twin mattresses and the fitted sheets were a little too big. The elastic holding them under the mattress is strong, but the fitted corners kept them from being pulled taut. I am glad to have them because they are tighter than any other brand I have tried. The "medium blue" sheets are quite a dark blue and they did run the first time I washed them. I used a color catcher and the dye did not get into other items in the wash.

A sheet that does what it should.
This has been a long time coming for me, now I have the sheet that work. I am now 74 and this is the best I have found. Thanks again for a good night sleep. Gary
