I am pleased with the quality of the comforter but, the pillows are of very poor quality. The pillows are filled with very large FEATHERS that poke right thru the covers and are painful to the touch. I even tryed putting two old pillow cases over the pillows to keep the feathers from poking thru the pillow covers. I have seen porcupine quills that were not a sharp as these feathers.
I have never bought a down comforter from the internet so I was a little weary when I initially ordered this product. I was so happy when I took it out of the box and put it on the bed, the quality is great and the comfort was even better! I wanted something a little modern, and with its different shades of white checker pattern it fit perfect with what i was looking for.
This is a really good value for just the down comforter, and we love it. Not too heavy, nice and fluffy! The only thing is that the pillows that come with it are overstuffed and not covered well, so feathers are leaking like made. I would suggest covering them with zippered cases before putting your shams on them.
I purchased the Euro Down Set for my 18 year old son for his college dorm. He likes the comforter, but the pillows are a bit prickly...Feather quills are course and poke through the cotton cover,so the shams came in handy...he uses this pillow under his, regular sleeping pillow just to prop him up a bit... I myself like the comforter it is fine but not as high quality as I am used to from overstock...Fine for a teenage son, but I would not suggest this particular set...because the pillows are just not right...and the quilt just so,so...
This comforter set looked good at first, but in just 10 days began to have that pesky "feather shift" thing where the feathers all end up stuffed into outer sections of the comforter. Despite careful fluffing each day, it is now very thin in some places and superstuffed in others. I'm sending it back soon. This happened before with a down comforter, so I suspect it might be a common quality issue.
FLAT... is the best way to describe this set. The pillows are a joke, they are very thin and provide very little support. The comforter is also lacking. This is not a fluffy down comforter. It is very light and flat. The lightness of the comforter is ok for me because I live in Florida, but if you are looking for something fluffy to keep you warm, this is not for you.Main point: I bought this product because it was a set... I thought I could get everything I needed from one purchase, but I would have been much better off buying things separately even if it would have cost more.
I used the comforter to put inside a duvet, although the check print on the material is quite classy and nice. I used the pillows that came in the set to go inside the shams provided to decorate the bed along with shams that match my duvet. I am very pleased with my purchase. The comforter is a nice weight and keeps us warm.
Great deal for the price. Items as described. Comforter not the thickest but more than adequate for cool to warm temperatures. The two pillows with pillow cases an extra bonus. Item received in just four days. Down comforter very soft. Perfect comforter especially for children without spending alot of money. Best combination deal. Defintely buy another one.
Pillows were like sandbags. Problem with this deal is that the quilts are so wrinkled that you hav eto spen $20 each at the cleaners to have them pressed--can't do it at home. Also, not full sized in width--compared to the comforter I replaced the width on these was 6 inches less
I bought this set last year and I'm ready to throw it out. It's done nothing but leak feathers all over my floor this entire time, aggravating my boyfriend's allergies. I was really excited by the good reviews, imagining a cozy Chicago winter. It was ok for the first few months, and then it began hemorraging feathers everywhere...even with a 400 thread count duvet on top. At this point, all the feathers are on one end of the comforter, and the other side is flat as a pancake. It's been packed for the trash, and it took 2 washes to get all the feathers out of my duvet. I'm never buying a down comforter from Overstock again.
The comforter is great -- good softness and a nice appearance, very warm. However, what a startling contrast to the pillows which are stiff, lumpy, and the pillow cases feel like cardboard and have no softness whatsoever -- these were a huge disappointment and should have been left out of the comforter package you sent me. Otherwise, the comforter is a great value!
I love this bedding. We were searching for a lightweight comforter to use with our summer duvet cover. It is wonderful.-just what we needed. The pillow shams are of very nice fabric. Pillows are OK. The only negative remark is that the comforter is about 8" shorter than the duvet, but I'm definitely not complaining as this has been a perfect fit for what we needed AND an excellent product for the price. I recommend it and would buy it again. THANK YOU, Overstock.com, for another great bargain.
