These are perfect for pillow top mattresses. Sorry camera really isn�t taking good color pictures but it�s truly dark blue. Very nice color. Excellent quality for price. I have a pillow top mattress with a 2� memory foam so the 15� sheets are never staying on even with clips under corners. While the 21� is a bit too long the extra fabric doesn�t show on the top and it fits so nicely under the mattress clips not needed at all. I�d rather have that little bit of extra fabric. I love these. I ordered another set in purple. Cat tested and approved as well.
Let me just say that the sheets are soo comfortable that I had to purchase another set. They are super warm as well. If you sleep hot be aware. The pockets for the fitted sheet are so deep that any mattress can fit. The top sheet is super long that you can tuck it and still have room to fold it over for a more decorative look.
