This product has mixed reviews, so I purchased it knowing what others thought... mine arrived very quickly and the colors were True Sky-blue and brown. The materials used (and stitching) appear cheap, but I was prepared for that by other reviewers. I purchased as a "stop-gap" so I don't need it to last a lifetime. If you are looking for something luxurious and high-quality, this is not for you. If you want a cute, stylish, inexpensive comforter set... this one strikes a reasonable balance between cost/quality.

The set is very attractive, and the colors match the bedroom very well. The quality of the set was not a good as I was expecting. One of the zippers on a sham broke a little over a month after I started using the set. I also thought that the set was machine washable, but the tag says dry clean only. As I have two cats, I want a comforter that I can wash. Next time I buy a comforter set, I will spend the extra money for a higher quality product.

Even with my $40 Club O discount, I still wish I hadn't wasted my money on this comforter set. I understand that some people think $$$ for a comforter set for a bargain, but in my opinion if I'm going to spend that much money I expect something that has a lot better quality. Honestly, I could have gotten a comforter for $15 at Walmart that would have probably been made better. The polyester material is NOT "softer than cotton," it is a cheap looking shiny material that is somewhat soft but feels nothing like cotton. Even though the info says this comforter is machine washable (the whole reason I bought it) the tag says dry-clean only. The comforter smells awful so you WILL want to wash it as soon as you get it, as I did. Well, it ended up being ruined from one gentle-cycle wash. The brown color bleed through on part of the blue side and is now permanently stained. In addition, the dryer burnt the cheap stuffing inside and now the comforter is lumpy in all the wrong places. I have woken up in a sweat almost every night I have slept under this comforter. Also, the zippers are in the strangest place on the pillow shams and I managed to rip one of the shams as I stuffed my pillow inside. The decorative pillows that the set comes with are sad and cheap looking. Please learn from my mistake and do not buy this comforter set!
It is an "okay" comforter, but not great. It looked a bit too masculine for my bedroom. VERY wrinkled out of the box. I left it out for a few days to determine if I liked it, and then it went straight back. The blue is very blue. Not a muted blue, like I was hoping for. And the brown is way too dark for my taste (I ordered the blue/brown). Now I have to pay for return shipping (I hate that)...always a big downer. Hoping my next online purchase is more successful. Always hard to determine fabric quality/color through a computer monitor. Would likely be a good choice for a college student, or a boy's bedroom. Definitely not girly.
This Comforter Set is definitely made in China, and some of the stitching and workmanship shows that. I purchased the brown/cream set and the coloring is very accurate as shown on the picture. We purchased the set in a KING size and I like the fact that the comfort is over-sized, allowing it to completely cover around our deep pocketed mattress. It has a nice filling, which does keep you warm. It came to us in a small box, giving it a lot of wrinkles, however I was able to iron them out easily on a light setting. After being on the bed for a few weeks it looked much better. All the extra pillows give it a nice appearance. The material used is pretty thin and cheap, but if you are on a budget or need something to get the job done for the time being, I would suggest getting this comforter set. Again, thin material on the bed skirt also, and some stitching had extra strings that needed trimming.
It said on the website that it was 100% cotton material but when we got it in it was 60% polyester on the tag kinda lame sent it back. So just a heads up it is 40% cotton and 60% polyester for the material. the return was nice and easy though lol.
Looks nice in the pic right? Well...if you decide to order one you will be very disappointed. The comforter you receive will resemble plastic and feels like it should be dollhouse furniture. Very cheap looking and feeling.

Nice comforter set for the price. I had to alter the bed skirt because of the slats in the bed. The bed skirt went all of the way around instead of having the usual cuts to go around the slats. It was simple to do. It just required that I cut the bed skirt at the two corners where the slats were and sew them under. Otherwise it would have been bunched up in that area. I haven't washed the bedspread yet, so I'm hoping it will do well in the washing machine since it is designated as machine washable.
