Royal Velvet WrinkleGuard Sheet Set Review
Bottom Line

Royal Velvet 400-thread-count WrinkleGuard Sheet Set gets some of the best reviews we saw for any sheet of any type. Reviewers say this set is a great value -- one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two pillowcases are included. They're soft out of the box, with the cool smoothness of sateen. Although they're not 100 percent wrinkle-free, they come close, owners say. This sheet set comes in full, queen, king and California king.

Breaking it down


Soft, yet smooth and cool. Made from 100 percent cotton, the Royal Velvet 400-thread-count WrinkleGuard Sheet Set shines for those who tend to sleep hot. These sheets are reported as smooth and silky feeling, yet soft enough to feel comforting as well, although there are a few outliers who say they're too scratchy or rough. Many owners say they loved them so much they bought additional sets for their children's or guest bedrooms.


A plethora of colors. The Royal Velvet 400-thread-count WrinkleGuard Sheet Set comes in a wide range of color options, 10 at the time this report was updated, although that may change over time as sheet color selections are sometimes discontinued or expanded. The Royal Velvet sheets have a very deep, 18-inch pocket, which means they fit even thick, pillowtop mattresses -- although some say they fit too loosely on thinner mattresses. They come in four sizes; full, queen, king and California king, but not in twin size.


Really wrinkle free. Many people like to sleep on perfectly smooth sheets and are willing to take an iron to their sheets to achieve that. But it's not necessary with the Royal Velvet 400-thread-count WrinkleGuard Sheet Set. As its name implies these sheets have a patented "wrinkle guard” technology that means they come out of the laundry cycle virtually wrinkle free. Some don't think it's quite enough and still iron, but most reviewers are very pleased. We saw almost no durability complaints; these sheets are made to go the distance.
