Rated 5 out of 5 by RangerRick Excellent product
These, as offered from L.L. Bean are the best available based on price/value. The most important feature is that they are manufactured in Portugal (not India). Their cut is generous so they fit well with no crimping when in use. After several washings they have had only minimal shrinkage and their finish is still very nice. In a perfect world my preference would be for a thread count of 500. It would provide for improved shape and finish durability. But in a world of trade offs would not want to sacrifice the size and manufacturing origin. Would hope that L.L. Bean retains its focus, which I'm sure they will, on quality and value for its customers and not be tempted squeeze margins.
Took some time to find these sheets. Had used a similar set by different vendor that switched to "India" manufacturing from Portuguese, and they became totally unsatisfactory. New product dimensions were reduced by some 8% and after just one washing the shrinkage was so sever that it pulled the corners of the mattress up.
It was refreshing to find them at L.L. Bean.

LL Bean supima sateen sheets 400 TC - Oct 23, 2013
Dec 2012 I purchased a set of full size 400 TC supima sateen natural sheets. this week after washing/drying, much to my surprise the fitted sheet had come apart at one of the corner seams. The pillow cases are also showing holes at the corners. Apr 2012 I had my previously purchased supima sateen foggy blue sheets recalled as part of a company wide recall, replaced due to detective material. These so far are holding up. I question the quality of the newer material being used in these sheets, and am really disappointed, because I love the feel. Wondering if there are continued customer complaints.

I love my new set of sheets. It is so nice to have a really good high quality set of sheets after years of not... :) The fern print style that I purchased are very lovely and luxurious.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lavender02 Fitted sheet pilled after ~2 months of use
I purchased some Sateen Sheets 5+ years ago from another retailer that has since stopped carrying them. I absolutely loved the sheets (quality, durability, AND price) and have been on the hunt to find replacements ever since. When I realized that LLbean had sateen sheets, I decided to give them a try based on LLbean's fantastic reputation for quality, customer service, etc. Unfortunately after only 2ish months of use the King fitted sheet (Color: Vintage Indigo) started pilling. I was hopeful I'd found my replacements so I was quite disappointed when this happened. I read several reviews for this sheet set and I do not recall this issue stated in other reviewers comments so I don't know if I received a defective sheet or what, but sadly I will be returning my sheets to LLbean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YOKO Supima Sateen Sheet
I ordered a queen set of the Supima Sheets.They arrived a day early which was vey nice.I washed them and I am using them right now.The fit is perfect,the quality is excellent and the design is understated ,but elegant.
I wish ,I could get another set of these in either another color or a similar design.
I am very happy with my purchase.
One small item -they do benefit from a little touch-up with the iron.
Excellent service as usual from L.L.Bean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RMACPA Did not Hold Up
I can't remember just how long ago I purchased these sheets, but probably 2 years ago or less. Only use them for half of the year when weather is warm. LLBean voluntarily replaced fitted sheet last year due to breakdown (contacted me even before I complained). Now within the last couple of months, have noticed the flat sheets breaking down on the ends. Washed it today, and it competely fell apart. Loved the look and feel of these sheets, but for the money, I thought they should last longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MinMN Great sheets but very expensive
I have been looking for soft, sateen sheets for a couple years after another store discontinued sheets I loved. After several failed attempts to find sateen sheets that met my softness standards I gulped hard and decided to try these.
I have had them for a couple of months and have been pleased. While they are not quite as soft as the ones I used to use, these show no signs of the pilling or other problems that other reviewers have complained about. They are silky, attractive and soft. They do not wrinkle much and are very comfortable.
My only quarrel with this product is that they seem expensive to me and I would like more color choices. But that did not stop me from buying two sets. I like them very much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MonDakMom Disappointed
I like cool, crisp and slick sheets that fit somewhat snug. These are none of those. Started pilling after two washes so I returned them. Have been happy with other purchases from LLBean so these sheets were disappointing.

These sheets are not silky soft. For the price, I was very disappointed. I expected a better quality from ll bean.
Wrinkle free -- I don't think so.
