Read such rave reviews and decided to risk a try. The price was too good to be true - literally! The comforter arrived in a taped together box with part of the inner package taped to the outer package. Extremely amateur packaging and when I opened it and shook it out I was shocked at how thin and skimpy the comforter was. The instructions said to let it sit for 48 hours to regain its fluff. I let it sit for a week, and no fluff was retained! The only reason I haven't returned it is that we needed a new lightweight blanket for summer, and that's what we're using it for. I'll buy another comforter when winter comes to use as a duvet. Very disappointed!!
This comforter is just really cheap, price and quality. Its minimally filled and barley fits a queen size bed. If you are going to use it with a duvet cover, don't, you will have 6" of fabric on each side of the cover that are flat because it is so small.
Very nice comforter. Only reason I did not rate quality as excellent is because I do not yet know how it will hold up but at this point I have no reason to doubt that it will be just fine. Wasn't purchasing for warmth and don't use while sleeping so I cannot attest to that aspect.
I looked at Down and saw some great deals, but this was the best option. One thing I hate about feather down is that they always bunch up and are noisy. This new comforter feels great and as the weather is starting to cool, it keeps me very comfortable (not hot).
The fabric seemed very nice, however, some squares were missing the filling and it did not seem at all like an all season comforter. I did not try it out, I just returned it right away so I cannot give an accurate review on the warmth but with some filling missing and it being VERY light, I do not think it would be a good winter comforter. Put it this way... when I folded it up to put back in the bag, it was the size of a pillow- I hope that helps you picture the lack of filling it had.
It never fluffed up when removed from the vacuum packaging. It was much thinner than portrayed in the picture/ description. The thickness was more like a blanket. This is the first time I've ever has a problem with the quality of an Overstock order. Overstock.com customer service was GREAT. They sent me a return label immediately and refunded my account within 3 days of receiving the return. I will definitely buy from them again.
For the price the comforter is good. It is nice light weight, but I ordered one for my king bed and it was much smaller than what I wanted. I put it inside a cover and on one side of the bed there is no comforter in it. I would suggest if you want one for a queen bed order a king size.
Yes, it is light weight, but to an extreme. The compartments were not full of stuffing. You could visibly see through the material and feel the lack of stuffing. Reviews complained of the stuffing shifting after washing, but it is already shifted and fluffing it did not help. There isn't enough stuffing to fill the compartments. Returning it ASAP!
based on the reviews I decided to purchase not one but 2 conforters. When it came it was in a clear sealed bag no brand name nothing, but that didn't affect me. It was once I opened the package and felt the conforter that I immediatly knew it was not what I had thought it would be. It was such cheap conforter you can almost get the same for $xx.xx at xxxx. When I put it inside my son's duvet, it felt like nothing was in there. It weight nothing and it felt like nothing. I returned both of them for credit, since sending it back will cost me shipping and I know I will purchase something else eventually I decided to do that. I wouldn't reccomend this to anyone, you can buy similar ones at xxxx and way way better ones for this price at xxxx xxxxx.
This down alternative is perfect for where we live in MO. My husband is so incredibly picky when it comes to what is on his bed and gets hot super easily. This comforter does not bother him one bit! It is very thin when you first take it out of the packaging but it does "fluff" slightly. It has been three days and has not fluffed out like other reviewers have claimed however, this doesn't bother me too much..just slightly. Be aware that this is NOT a big poofy down blanket and you might want to consider a duvet over it cause it isn't incredibly soft.
From reading all of the reviews I thought this product would be great! and then some of the reviews were not so good so I was CONFUSED! I went through with the purchase and in the end I love this product! I live in Florida and it is perfect during the summer and winter!
The fabric is soft and so was the effect to my new bedroom. I had purchased one 2 years ago for my son's new home and thought I was getting the same one for me 2 years later. His was incredible for the value and he was very pleased. He still uses it to this day. However, mine is a little difference; same price, but the fabric is silkier and dreamy to sleep with!
