I actually bought this with the help of the live Overstock assistant while online. The online "help" said this comforter is lightweight and would be good in warmer climates, as this was one of my concerns. It is a very plush and cozy comforter -- probably a good weight for most of the year, although not the summer. Overall, I am very happy with its appearance, loft and comfort and I would definitely say it was a great value -- considering that you would probably pay twice as much at a department store.
Upon opening the package, I expected at least a slight odor from the down blanket.....nothing. No smell and it was soft right out of the box. Slept with it the first night and was never more happy with a down blanket purchase....and I have been a down blanket user for over 12 years. Very warm yet breathable, very soft yet keeps its loftiness. A must have for any cooler to cold climates.
This comforter is great! It took a full day to fluff up, but did not have any smell to it. The high thread count keeps the feathers from poking through. I am so comfortable that I do not want to get out of bed! It's perfect for those cold winter nights. The only downfall is that my husband is complaining that it's too hot (but that's his issue, not mine).
I love the goose down comforter. It was exceptionally warm and not heavy at all. It was very soft and puffy with only 15 minutes of shaking out. It even got the approval of my boyfriend's elderly grandma who is very old school about her blankets!!!
When I say I spent a lot of time on this site going back and forth between comforters we're talking hours on end for about a month. Reading all the reviews and comparing one after an other. Alot of people recomended getting a King size for the Queen bed....I decided to get the Queen only because I have a nice platform bed and didn't want to hide it. The comforter had no bad smell at all and fluffed up very nicely. Have to add this is the first one I've owned so I can't compare, but I would highly recomend this one. If your mattress is thick you may want to go with the King size. Over all great buy!!!
I purchased this item along with: #1014626, #1150476, #1150729. After finally receiving them all and putting them on my bed. I swear we are in heaven. The first night my husband and I slept through the whole night. This is a first!!! The covers are so soft, not scratchy at all. This comforter did not have a smell at all. I took it out, fluffed it up, let it sit for a couple of hours and it was good to go. As a lot of other people said, the feathers are not evenly distributed and cannot be fixed. But the squares affected, are on the side so there was not any heat loss. I purchased the blush lavender for my cover and it was a muted tone which is fine for us. The featherbed is GREAT. The cover for the featherbed is so soft and comfy. We stayed at the Opryland Hotel and that was our first experience with down. I went on Overstock picked out these 4 items and feel I am back at the 4 Star hotel again. I would recommend purchasing these 4 items together for your most comfortable sleep. We have had them for a week now and all we have to do is "SHAKE AND SLEEP". Do not hesitate at all. It is well worth the money. Have you checked out the quality and prices at other well known bedding companies??? The only complaint that I have is with the shipping method. The feathbed and cover were sent FedEx and the comforter and cover were sent UPS. Both items were in their distribution center on the same days, yet all 4 items were delivered on 4 different days. Something should be done about that. UPS took 10 days to deliver, which is unusual for Overstock. Just something to consider if you need these items quickly.
This is my first experience buying from Overstock.com. I was extremely impressed by the speed of service. I ordered this down comforter on Oct.3rd- it shipped on Oct 4th and I received it on the Holiday, Oct 9th.!!! Amazing... As for the product, I was afraid it would be bulky and not good quality. The comforter is not at all big and bulky and the cover is beautiful - to me it is prettier than it appears in the ad...Awesome!!!!
I've only had this two nights, but I've grown to love it already (watch it fall apart by the end of the week or something.) It's very comfortable and warm and after airing it out for a few hours, it doesn't smell quite as chemicall-y. It fits perfectly on my queen. (I got the king size comforter, which I recommend - go big!) I'd buy it again.
I read the reviews before purchasing this comforter. I am so glad I ordered it! It is incredibly soft yet durable. Because the thread count is high, there aren¿t any feathers poking through to stab you in your sleep. It comes packed tightly but a few shakes and voila! The comforter puffs out and the loft is good. The manufacturer claims that this comforter has a 650 fill power but I think it may be a bit less. That said, I am not disappointed in any way with the loft. The comforter is still a high quality item and worth it at this great price. Some people said they noticed a smell that went away after some time, I haven¿t had that problem. There is no unpleasant smell to my comforter. I purchased a king size for my queen sized bed at the suggestion of another reviewer. I recommend doing this if you like your blanket to hang over the edge of the bed. I think I would have been disappointed in the size of the queen as it¿s only 88 x 88. This is a great product for the price. (Shhhhh) They should be selling it for a lot more!) I highly recommend it.
I recevied this comforter last week and unlike other down products, it did not have an odor. I aired it out for one day and it fluffed up and was ready for use. It s a little heavy but I live in the midwest and only use them during the winter so it will be great! When held up to the light there are some areas that have less down, but agian, this is not unusual for down products. It is very pretty and soft! Even though I hate the winter months, I am looing forward to very comfortable sleep with this comforter. I do recommend this product for its quality and price
I am extremely pleased with this down comforter. Although I expected it might have that "smell," I was pleased this comforter was completely odorless! (I was preparing to hang it outside during the daytime for several days.) I was able to slip it into my duvet cover and start using it right away. It's warmth is exactly what I wanted, but some folks might find it too warm; in fact, I'll probably not use it during the summer months. This purchase was well worth the money and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves to stay warm without all the added weight of multiple blankets. I'm sold on down bedding, and I might add, overstock.com!
Have been using this for a month or so, got the king size for my queen bed and it is amazing! The feathers are high quality, you can't feel any sharp edges, and nothing pokes through (I've had other down comforters that had this problem). Maybe all the squares weren't evenly filled, but as if fluffed up I didn't notice any problems (and I'm very picky). Definitely getting more than you're paying for. Quick shipping. Definitely a must have.
product is very poofy. However, the queen size version isn't very wide - only 88", so if you're looking for something that drapes a lot over the sides, this isn't it. All things considering though, I love the blanket and think it's a great value.
I spent a lot of time going through the overstock.com website, looking at each of the down comforters and -- boy -- I'm really glad that I made the choice I did! I've had the comforter for about a month now and I absolutely love it. It's very fluffy and keeps it's shape nicely. I wish that it was a little warmer since my apt is quite drafty, but I haven't had a bad night's sleep since I've gotten it, so I guess that's a good sign. It's very, very comfortable. I was worried about "the smell" that some reviews referred to, but mine arrived clean, beautiful, and ready to use! This is a high quality product and I'm very satisfied.
