The elastic around the fitted sheet is still strong and pulls tight. Depending on the color you go with they may show a bit of fading over time.
I have used and washed the blue, dark brown and ivory multiple times and the only one with minor fading is the dark brown. Even with washing on a gentle cycle and drying at low heat I did notice a bit of shrinking that was most noticeable in the pillow cases, but besides that they have washed up nicely and really maintain their original integrity.
