We were looking for a year round comforter. Like it says it is All-seasons. It is Dec. in Michigan and it is just right. Not heavy but still you feel comfortable. My hubby is always to warm but he does not take it off and I like covers and feel so cozy.
It's like heaven in a bag, and the price was perfect! The comforter is lightweight but warm, and it is more comfortable than any comforter I have ever had. I am allergic to feathers, so I could never have a down comforter. I always wished I could. This is the closest alternative, and I would highly recommend this comforter for anyone with allergies but who wants the comfort and feeling of a down comforter.
You can't beat the price. I use a King duvet and cover on a Queen size bed and this is perfect. I can't imagine using it during the summer as others have suggested, but for the cooler Fall and Spring nights and certainly winter, it's great.
The item looks nice enough for the bedroom but be prepared to sweat, soaking-sheets sweat, when you sleep. I ended up purchasing an a different (100% Cotton + down filled) comforter after trying this one. I recommend skipping on this item.
I don't normally write reviews, but this particular item is wonderful. My husband and I call it 'the cloud'. It's lightweight, but warm and perfect year-round in Florida. It washes and dries beautifully. It's well-made and has not 'shifted' in the year that we've had it. Can't make claims on how this would do in colder parts of the country, but it's just right for Florida.
I love the fact that I get my merchandise 2 days after placing my order. This item is such a good deal for the price. Yes, you need to air it out for at least 2/3 days to let it 'puff' up and air out. Once it does, it's very soft and silky. I bought a duvet to protect it after reading other reviews. Anyway, since it's pure white, I prefer to cover it to keep it clean. It is very comfortable and warm. Now I don't have to turn the heater temp up in the evenings. Great product and price.
This alternative comforter is not fluffy/full like the picture. It arrives vacuumed packed with directions to allow it to sit for 48 hours after taking it out of the bag. I waited 3 days and nothing, still flat as a pancake. If you are looking for thin comforter, this is the one for you. If you are looking for a big, fluffy alternative down comforter, you will have to look elsewhere.
