This duvet is a nice grey color. It looks nice on the bed and didn't wrinkle after it came out of the wash. No ironing needed. It is not 100% cotton and you will be able to tell. It feels like polyester cotton blend. This doesn't bother me, especially for the inexpensive price. Happy with the purchase!

This comforter is fantastic, although it is slightly transparent as other people have said. I love the style, and it washes up nicely with no wrinkles. The only negative for me is that it's microfiber, and it has no tie ins, so the comforter has a tendency to slip around and get bunched up inside. Otherwise, a great buy!
After reading some reviews about this Duvet set, I decided to take a chance on it. My husband and I both have different taste so it is hard for us to agree on the same sheets at times. But this duvet set is great. It feels silky and soft and feels like if I should have paid more for it. My husband complained it was too silky but I love it. The only thing that I can say negative about it, is that its so silky it slips from the down blanket we have. We have tie downs for it so it was easily corrected.
I like the look of it, but it's somewhat of a headache. For whatever reason, it doesn't seem to fit my comforter very well (which is the same size - a queen). I always have balled up material I'm getting tangled in while I sleep, as this duvet cover is way too big and leaves so much empty space. Also, the buttons holding it closed constantly unbutton, perhaps also due to the size variation between this cover and my comforter. Unfortunately, I'm not 100% sure if the issue of size is the responsibility of this product or my comforter, but someone is definitely off. The comforter is a fairly high-end name brand, so I'm assuming it's this product that has its sizing off. The pillow shams fit great, though! It's also very low maintenance, upkeep wise. And the reversible option is always fabulous.
The microfiber fabric is not what I would normally think of as microfiber. It is almost like parachute material, kinda shiny and slick. It washed up very nicely for me, the colors did not run. fabric softener worked nicely to take some of the roughness out of the material. The opening is nicely made and the buttons that close up the duvet cover are clear colored. Overall its a great price, looks really cute, and washes up well. Its not the softest or thickest material but its very pretty and worth buying.
Though I said I wouldn't recommend this to a friend, it does depend on what my friend wants. This duvet is very thin, and has a distinctly polyester feel to it until it's been washed a few times. So, perhaps a good summer weight duvet for a light blanket. After the first week, one of the seams pulled apart, but I suspect my cat (who likes to dig beneath the covers) did that as the other seams are fine.
You get what you pay for. It's very soft, washes well, and looks great with a white duvet (it is fairly see-through so I wouldn't recommend a colored duvet/comforter). My only complaint is that there are no ties so the duvet slips around alot. If there were ties I'd give it 4 stars.
For the money, this is a great set. It's lightweight and looks really nice, matches most rooms. I'm a restless sleeper, though, and this duvet really doesn't want to stay on the sides/corners of the comforter, even with the help of four safety pins. I think it's just a result of the relatively slick fabric, but it also isn't sewn to be thinner/have really distinct edges and corners structurally. So I have to resituate it every other day or so, but otherwise, very happy customer.
