I got this for summer thinking it would be lightweight and since it's a bedspread I could make the bed the old-fashioned way--without shams. But it always felt heavy since the sides went all the way to the floor. I fought with it a lot during the night. It IS very pretty and I like the fact that it's reversible.
I was skeptical because of a few reviews that said colors didn't match, etc. But the colors match the bedspread perfectly, and they washed up perfectly before I used them on the bed. There was no smell before washing, either. I want something that can be washed regularly, and these look like they will hold up well. I don't care and didn't measure shrinkage; there may have been some but I am not the one to ask!
Great addition to the Secret Garden bedspread! Such a bright, cheerful look that completes the decor. King sized pillows fit nicely inside the shams. In our small condo, a great way to store guest sofa bed pillows..yet enjoy as a decorative touch to master bedroom on a daily basis. As usual, great customer service from Overstock and Associate ***, after I accidentally ordered the wrong size. Thank you Overstock!
