The comforter I ordered has worked out well with our color scheme. It fit the look I was looking for. Had I not read reviews that were posted prior to ordering, I would have been disappointed. The comforter is smaller than the sizes it is available in. We have a queen-sized bed and after reading the reviews, I decided to order the king-sized comforter. Very glad I did...It fit our bed. All in all, we are happy with it. Posting the actual dimensions would be very helpful to others wanting to order.

First, the bad; There is white piping around the edge of the comforter and mine (in the smoke blue) also has white seams through out. Now that I have the comforter in my hands, and look back on the photo, I can see the white piping in the photo...sort of. But the white thread for the seams is not in the photos. To me, this makes it look a little less nice than I had wanted or anticipated. It looks much more casual. Otherwise, this was a great deal. The cotton outer feels a lot nicer than most other comparably priced comforters that have poly outers. It's a nice, heavy, almost sateen that is very comfy. It's a very solid mid-weight and feels very close to duck down, more so than many other "down alternative" comforters I've looked at. I live in California so my winters are somewhat mild, but it does get down in the 30s occasionally at night and this comforter works great for me without over heating me. The smoke blue color is a nice light teal/dark robins egg color. Just wish they used matching thread. Oh, and I too took the advice of other reviews and bought a size up (a king for my queen bed) and it fits perfect with just the right amount of overhang. Overall, good deal on a solid comforter.
This comforter was not as fluffy as I was lead to believe from the description. It was for my daughter's bed at college, and in no way compared to a "fluffy" down alternative comforter that I had previously purchased for her from Overstock.
This down comforter is very soft, but it is not as plush as I pictured it to be after viewing the photo. The color blue is also not as light as it appears in the photo, it was a little darker. It also does not fit on our queen sized bed as it appears in the photo. There is not a lot hanging off and not enough to fold over. However, it is extremely soft and lightweight and comfortable. I enjoy it.
Very good sizing. Came just the size I needed. I hate it when they are thinner than expected and this one was just right. Not too thick and not too thin. I got a king and the color was teal. It didn't match my walls in my bedroom so I put it in the spare room and it fits my queen bed with grace and beauty. Love it. Need another one in a different color!
I bought the smoke blue version of this comforter in the Full/Queen for my full size bed. Accurate color (actually looks nicer in person). Color is on both sides. Though the piping is white, you don't have to worry about a white side of the comforter that will get easily dirty. Construction appears solid. No loose threads, even stitching. Feels a bit stiff, but I haven't washed it yet and so I don't know how much of that is sizing in the fabric that will come out with that first time through the washer. Not a fluffy comforter, but of a good medium warmth. Like the fact that it's made of cotton, because I hate feel of microfiber. Good overall value for the money.
