For some reason, I am really drawn to this shade of blue. I also got the Madison Park quilted coverlet set in blue to dress my bed for winter. Together these two pieces look wonderful. For the duvet cover, sometimes it seems a duvet inside a cover walks to one edge or another. Although there are no ties in this cover (nor were there ties on the duvet i also purchased), the duvet seems to stay in place very well. Once the dog gets out of the way, a good shake puts everything where it belongs, and puffs it up nicely. There is no problem with pulled threads from the dog sleeping on it either. I could use both the duvet and the cover to be about four inches wider, but they are standard size, so I guess I am just asking more than I can expect. I have not washed the set yet, so don't know how it will do after a good laundry session.
I am always worried about purchasing something for my bed without feeling it first. I hoped that because it was microfiber it would be soft enough. I was pleasantly surprised! I bought this cover to replace a microfiber duvet cover that I hated! My old cover held onto every single dog hair it could. It's easy to brush stuff off with just my hand on this one. I bought this cover for my king sized down alternative comforter. It fits great. The ONLY negative thing about the cover is that the comforter moves around inside the cover. A simple solution is to attach ties on the inside which is what I think I will do. The cover is a bit thin so if you're looking for something thick this is not the cover for you. The color is just like the picture which is great. The cover is a great buy for the price. I hated to spend a lot of money on one with my messy husband. He proved me right after he dripped chocolate sauce on the cover. I didn't wash it right away and worried about staining. I just rubbed in laundry soap and threw it in the washer. No stains left! Unbelievable! I would recommend this cover!
I am pleased with this duvet cover, overall. Some notes: * It feels much more "slick" than I expected (I might not have read the description fully). Instead of feeling like cotton, it's more of a synthetic. I was initially disappointed, but that wore off quickly. * The reverse side is beautiful! It makes me feel like I'm sleeping in a hotel bed (plus, you can turn the "colored" side in so that the whiter side stays whiter - not that I roll around in dirt before I hop into bed, but you know what I mean. GENIUS!) * No wrinkles after washing and drying! * Easy to use! I use it with a down comforter and it was ridiculously easy to place the comforter inside the duvet. There was a little bunching at the bottom, but once I used it one or two nights, it corrected itself.

This is my first duvet and was not exactly sure what to expect. I had heard that these thing can be hard to put on comforters. This was not my experience. This was very easy for me to use, went on very easily. The fabric feels really great almost like satin. I agree with another reviewer said it really is more green than blue. I am very happy with my purchase and this seller.
This is a lovely, virtually weightless duvet cover, very soft and satiny, perfect for using without a duvet in the summer (I'm sure it would be lovely with a duvet as well, I just hate them... too cumbersome). I'd highly recommend this for pet owners, as it's stood up very well to my cat's claws and is smooth enough that fur can be brushed away. My only very small complaint is that it tends to bunch and wrap around itself in the dryer, so I have to stop the dryer mid-cycle and de-tangle or else it comes out a big ball with a wet center.
wanted to improve the looks of my dingey down comforter...but even pinning at corners and center the comforter slides around inside. needs a less slick inner surface to keep in place. like the color and print just hoped for better quality fabric.
