I came to write a review right away because these sheets were so remarkably thin. You can see right through them. I did not necessarily expect much because of the price, but I did think they would be decent with such high reviews. I do not think they are particularly soft and they had a really strong smell taken out of the packaging. Hopefully I like them more once they're thoroughly washed and put on the mattress. Either way, a good backup pair of sheets that I won't mind getting blowouts on.
