I had purchased this set from another retailer over 2 years ago with several different brands, this set has held up the best showing the least amount of wear and tear. I wash in warm and dry on medium. They have not shrunk and did soften some with time. I found this site when I was needing to replace the other brands that I purchased due to wear and tear and was elated that I could buy this set so reasonably, and even with my extended size there was only a small time delay. I would highly recommend this set.
