I got these in queen but they are actually for a full sized bed. The full size are ok but they shrink after washing. (I washed per directions)The fitted sheets fit on the corners but the sides do not go down far enough to tuck under the mattress. The queen sheets, after washing, fit my 12 inch full mattress perfectly though. There is little extra room but I tuck it and it stays put, even after sleeping on it. The queen top sheets fit my quilts better also. Those extra inches look perfect when folded over the quilt at the top. I have several sets and find them to feel nice. I do not understand the reviews about these sheets being rough and stringy. Mine are thick, soft and have no extra strings hanging. They seem to get softer with every wash. I always buy a few sets when there is a sale and I have never paid over $25 a set. For the price, these sheets are great.
