I should have read the description more closely, but this is just an odd product.It is a duvet, but with decorative stitching so you can't cover it with a duvet cover. For anyone who isn't used to duvets please be warned: It is a terrible idea to use a duvet without a duvet cover as your body oils will ruin the down inside. I don't really understand why anyone would use this product.
I really love the look of these comforter's. I purchased two, one for my king size bed and another for my queen. The BAD thing about them, they are not large enough for the beds. The king size especially is to small. When you measure from the top of the bed to the bottom, they need to be at least 12" to 18" inches longer. I kept them because I have enough pillows to cover the area that is missing.Overall, I would not purchase another for that reason.......
This product adds a nice clean lined touch to the bedroom, but as stated, the material is a little light. If you're looking for plush, this isn't it. It works fine for me because I've got a pillowtop mattress with a down pad on top of the mattress, but I'm afraid I'd be disappointed if I didn't..the bed might look a little flat. Also, a caviat to those with the same kind of setup, it's a bit short on the sides because of the pillowtop and down pad, so if you want something that is slightly more oversized, I'd look for another product. Overall, good quality for the price, and of course, shipped quickly...as I've come to expect, and appreciate with Overstock!
This could have been a lovely, very lightweight set even though it was not large enough to cover my king mattress. The problem was the shiny, "chintz" fabric, which is not often used these days. It is permanently crushed & wrinkled & looks like crushed velvet --- except in cotton. I brought my daughter up to see it on my bed & she asked why it looked so bad? Bad -- is not a good word. She is 38 & knows bad from good. Being a comforter, I cannot Iron it, so I will just use it in private with all its wrinlkes
I'm using the set on a guest bed. It looks wonderful and my first guest said it was very comfortable. The comforter is not to heavy or too light which will be great for year round usage. I have an older full size bed and it does need a bed skirt which I have on order from Overstock!
I was incredibly pleased with this set. This is a lightweight comforter perfect for Spring through Fall in the Midwest. Really a great deal! I only wanted a comforter to put in a duvet I already own, but it was cheaper to buy this set than to buy a plain comforter. I liked it so much, I am using it as is!
Really love the understated pattern and colors of this set (I went w/ navy stripes), but it is really a nuisance having a duvet w/ the pattern stitched on it. W/out a cover on the duvet, it gets dirty much faster and requires dry cleaning; but if I put a duvet cover on then the stripes are covered up. Also, would really have loved the bedskirt included in the set, as seen in the picture.
I bought this about a year ago in Navy and absolutely love it. The down is light enough to use on cool nights and sometimes not much more than I need on a cold night. I would agree with some of the other reviewers that it does run just a tad short. My queen sized doesn't quite drape low enough to cover the sides of the mattress. I'd buy it again though. It's a lovely clean look.
