Initial Purchase Review & One Month Update
on December 15, 2012
My friend bought these sheets and told me about them -as soon as I felt them I knew I had to get some too (especially at this price). These are super soft sheets. I don't think they're 100% cotton 1800 thread count sheets -but they are still SUPER soft, and if they were I'm sure they'd cost a LOT more than $26. My friend bought them in the king size aqua blue color and they are beautiful, exactly how the color looks online (and fit her bed exactly). I bought two sets of these sheets, one in the gold/camel color to give as a Christmas gift (beautiful color!) and one for my own bed. I was torn on what to get for my own and I ended up choosing the beige/cream color and am SO glad I did. The beige color looks really ugly (IMO) online, but in person is much prettier. It's an ivory color that goes perfectly with all my other bedding. Also, I'm SO glad I ordered it instead of white because although these sheets are REALLY soft, they are also kind of thin. My pillows have a pattern on them that would show through if I'd gotten the white sheets. The pattern is just barely noticeable (to me) with the beige sheets. But I'm still SO glad I ordered them.
These are the BEST deal I've ever gotten on sheets. I've paid much more money for sheets that weren't nearly this soft. If it wasn't just before Christmas (and all my family's extra money going towards gifts) I'd be buying extra sets for my bedding and my guest bedroom. All the colors I've seen so far have been beautiful and these sheets feel SO good when I sleep in them! My husband also loves them too & definitely noticed a difference. :) Definitely recommend these sheets and don't be afraid to order them in the beige/cream color, they're much prettier in person.
One month UPDATE:
After a month of using these sheets (and washing them) I feel like I need to take a star off of my review. I still am very glad that I bought them and still like them, but find the thin-ness to be somewhat problematic. I have to wash them pretty frequently when they make the sheet-rounds to our bed. All my other sets of sheets are a lot sturdier than this set and I've never had this problem with sheets before except in a VERY cheap set I bought from TJ Maxx a few years ago... (although they weren't nearly so soft as these; they were real cotton and a low thread count, although very thin, as these are...). These sheets BUNCH and the fitted sheet does not stay on my mattress. After a few nights of sleeping on these sheets they are coming off of my mattress, bunching up and I feel the need to just rip them all off of my bed and re-wash them (where, after they're clean, they are sent to the bottom of my bedsheets stack. I cannot imagine having ONLY these sheets (or mutliple pairs of these sheets) as my only sheets... I have sheets from various department stores as well as Walmart (they make better sheets than you think! Especially the high-thread count ones, you can get a good deal on I find) and I've never had this problem before... ever... except, again, in that one super cheap pair that I got from TJ Maxx...
I don't want to knock these sheets, because I still love them, but I definitely think that anyone taking the time to read these reviews before they purchase needs to know that they're not perfect. I still stand by my original review and won't edit it, but after living with these sheets for about a month I find they're not quite as perfect as I thought they'd be. Also, I bought my set for $26. I'm not sure if I would buy them for $36 (the current price as I write this review 1/12/2013) knowing what I know now about them. $36 is still a good deal, but I'm just not sure if I'd spend the money on them. They feel super soft, but it's really bothersome that they won't stay on my bed...
