A closer look at the Macy’s CVC sheets class action lawsuit

The Macy's CVC sheets class action lawsuit centered on allegations of false advertising and misrepresentation of product quality. Filed against Macy's and AQ Textiles LLC, the lawsuit claimed that these companies inflated the thread count of their Chief Value Cotton (CVC) sheets, leading consumers to believe they were purchasing higher-quality bedding than what was actually provided.

Thread count, a measure of the number of threads woven into one square inch of fabric, is a key indicator of sheet quality for many consumers. Higher thread counts are often associated with greater softness and durability. According to the class action lawsuit, Macy's and AQ Textiles advertised the CVC sheets with a thread count that significantly exceeded the actual number of threads per square inch. This discrepancy led consumers to pay a premium for sheets under the impression they were of superior quality.

The settlement specifics

Macy's has not admitted any wrongdoing but has chosen to settle the lawsuit to avoid the costs and uncertainties of litigation. The settlement provides financial compensation to consumers who were led to believe they were purchasing superior bedding based on misleading thread count information.

The amount you could receive depends on whether you can show proof of purchase. 

  • With proof, you're eligible for up to $7.50 per CVC Sheet set purchased. 
  • Without proof, you can still claim up to $2.50 per household. 

These amounts may be adjusted depending on the number of claims filed.
