by DFWdavid want to love them but not durable
for the first year, these were my favorite sheets, and I had vowed to only buy these in the future.
they look nice, they're soft, they truly are wrinkle-free, they have deep pockets and fit a deep mattress better than any other sheet set I've ever owned.
but I woke up the other night to the sound of fabric tearing as I pulled the covers up higher. in the morning, I found a tear about 6" long. I was going to fix them, but when I made the bed and carefully pulled a little more, the rip doubled. the material is so thin now that it's almost see-through (see my picture of the think spots and the beginnings of tears in the flat sheet draped over a desk lamp)
I decided to retire them and turn them into rags. I was shocked at how easily they tore into small, rag-size pieces.
I loved everything about these sheets, but now I don't think I will buy them anymore because they didn't last very long. some people may think a couple years is a long time to own a set of sheets, but I've never before used a pair long enough for them to become thin and tear so easily.

I was so happy with these sheets. They are so soft and deep pockets are wonderful. But...after owning them for a year they began to wear thin at the foot of my husband's side of the bed. Now I have to replace them due to a big tear in the fitted sheet. I've never had this happen, not even with cheap sheets. Very disappointed to spend that much money for quality for it to only wear out. I love the sheets and I'm very sad they didn't last longer.

I love the silky feel of this product. Haven't slept on them yet. I bought them for my son's bed. When he comes home for holiday from college, he'll test them out.

The sheets are very soft, although they are not wrinkle free.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Farmlady They shrink!
I loved these sheets when they came out of the package. Couldn't wait to wash them and get them on the bed. Imagine my surprise when I tried to make the bed only to find the fitted sheet had shrunk. I could make it work if I pulled on it enough. The top sheet apparently shrunk 3 inches because It is barely wide enough to cover the mattress. I measured it. The finished size is supposed to be 66 x 96. After washing it is 63 by 94. I think the idea is wonderful. Even if they are not wrinkle-free, they are soft. I just wish they had not shrunk so much. I might be able to use the top sheet on a youth bed but it certainly will not work on a twin.

The extra deep pockets and elastic on the fitted sheet will keep me coming back for more of these sheets in the future. If you have a pillow top mattress, these sheets are a must. I do wish the thread count was higher, but they are soft enough. The description says wrinkle free, and I am impressed with the way they come out of the dryer and look on the bed. Overall, I would recommend these to friend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by needsheets Fitted sheet shredded after 7 months
I experienced 2 of the same problems as other reviewers. Bought a queen set of these sheets, along with extra pillow cases and some king cases for my big hugging pillow. First I found that using prespotter products according to package directions removed color from the sheets and left spots. Then about 7 months after we began using them a big hole appeared at the bottom of the fitted sheet. I went a step further than other reviewers and tried doing an iron on fabric patch, but the sheet was so thin that when next laundered, a big rip appeared beside the patch. I have a front loader washing machine that doesn't pull or twist the laundry, and I always launder sheets by themselves. So now I'm stuck with a top sheet and lots of pillow cases--what a waste of money. The ironic thing is the sheets I returned to using are another of JC Penney's brands, and I've been using them for almost 15 years!! Do yourself a favor and don't waste your money on these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MattsMom1 Why didn't someone think of this sooner! Easy to fit over mattress!
I had recently purchased a "wrinkle-free" sheet set from another dept. store and paid over 3 times as much as the Studio brand from Penneys(reg. price). After wash/drying, they were so rough and WRINKLED, I returned them. Then ordered the old stand-by Studio sheets from Penneys. It had been a while since I had bought new sheets from Penneys, so when I opened the package I was surprised to see the top and bottom panels. I really thought they might be hard to put on. We have a king size bed, and I have a bad shoulder and usually have to fight a very thick (about 18+inches) mattress to get the bottom sheet to fit. NOT THIS TIME! And you can bounce a coin on the top. Perfect fit. And I do not have to fight it. NO WRINKLES! Pure luxury at 1/3 the cost. I immediately went to our local Penneys and purchased the last 3 king size sets they had for our bed, 4 more queens for our guest beds, and then ordered 3 more for Christmas gifts for family. Thanks Penneys, for having the perfect sheet set for any size and height mattress. Sometimes, the old trusted brand is still the best!
