I was skeptical about the quality of this comforter based on the price, but I read all the reviews, took a chance... and was not disappointed. My review is a bit late as I totally forgot, but since MY purchase was made based on reviews, I'd like to "pay-it-forward"; and, since I've lived with this comforter for awhile now (bought in October 2013), perhaps my review will be more helpful??? First, I use a duvet cover, so the look & feel did not matter to me - sorry! However, it does fill-out the duvet very nicely and has a "makes-you-want-to-snuggle" feel. It's also very warm; in fact, too warm for me, but my husband, who is ALWAYS cold, loves it. FYI: we live in NJ, our heat is set to 65 at night, its been a horribly cold winter and this comforter was still too warm for me! The item arrived quickly - very quickly....and, was well packaged. You will need to fluff this up after removing from the box; we, after giving it a quick tumble in the dryer (no heat), laid it out on the bed in the guest room for two days and it was perfect. Sweet Dreams!
This blanket was nice cozy but it did not fit over our standard King sized bed. We like to have enough blanket on the sides so that we're both warm and cozy. If you do too, this isn't the right blanket for you. Unless you buy a King size for your Queen.
For anyone looking for a good quality down alternative, I think this comforter is a good choice. The fabric is quite (not loud and crunchy). It's medium weight - so it works most of the year. I have a nice coverlet that I add during the cold winter months, when needed. I think it's a very good value for the price.
Since I have a household of 4 cats, I always look for a nice quality for a fair price in the event the item has to be replaced more frequently. I especially love the loftyness of the comforter, and the exterior fabric is very soft to the touch. I actually do not use a duvet cover with mine, and looks nice by itself.
Love love love this comforter. Have had it for almost 2 yrears, and it still just like new. We live in the midwest and have had a very cold and a very mild winter and the comforter has been perfect for each. It's so large that we have to take it to the laundrymat for laundering, but well worth the extra $$. Very adaptable for cold as well as mild winters. Woud definetly repurchase this item.
We have dogs - and yes they sleep with us from time to time - so I decided we needed a comforter that was soft, warm and could be washed - dry cleaning adds up after a while. This is the perfect comforter - keeps us warm, it is soft and ready to be washed when needed - so I do not miss our down comforters.
This is a beautiful, soft, and lightweight comforter! I thought it might be too light, but it is so soft and WARM!. My rotten cats love this comforter! The fabric is white, white and it fluffs after being removed from the packaging. Really happy I bought this comforter.
I love this comforter! The size is perfect for my pillow-top king mattress! I have been looking for one that fits my bed forever!!! I live in Arizona, and I have been using it since March. What I truly enjoy is the fact that I don't sweat to death during the night like I did with my down comforter. It looked great on my bed without my duvet cover because it's so soft and the loft is great being alternative down. However, when I put it in the duvet, the appearance was a bit lumpy. That being said, it wouldn't sway my purchase because all you have to do is shake it out and pat it down in some places. This is an awesome item for the price and I highly recommend it. Thanks Overstock, you are always a pleasure to shop with!
I was extremely happy with the quality and value of this comforter. It is incredibly warm, fluffy, and well made. Even my "mountain man" boyfriend, who would be happy sleeping with a packing blanket over him and has commented that it doesn't matter what kind of blanket we have on the bed, admitted how comfortable this comforter is and how much he likes it (he isn't going to live this comment down anytime soon!).
I purchased this comforter about a month ago. When I pulled it out of the box half of the squares were puffed up and the other half were completely flat. I then came back to this website to read some of the reviews and one person said that after a few days all the squares came to life. Unfortunately that was not the case with my comforter. Half of the squares are still flat and don't offer that much warmth. The other half that is puffed up seems to get really hot. I would not recommend this product.
After fifteen years of using down, I was reluctant to try a down alternative comforter. After a week of using this comforter, I love it! It feels just like down - same light weight, same warmth - but I don't wake up in the morning feeling like I've been breathing feathers all night. I guess I had a slight allergy to down and didn't realize it. This comforter needs several days to expand fully. I was a little disappointed when we first opened it, because the fill seemed sparse and spotty. By the first night, it had expanded some, and was warm but it looked flat and limp. Not to worry - the fill kept expanding daily, until after three nights, every cell was thick and fluffy and blocky-looking. It's beautiful now. The fabric is very smooth, so it slides into a duvet easily. This comforter is warmer than our winter-weight down comforter. I've turned down the thermostat another couple of degrees at night to compensate.
I received mine yesterday while at work. Went to the laundromat to use the big 35 pound washing machine. Washed in warm water with downy softener. Dried at medium for 40 minutes pulling it out after 20 mins to move it around to dry quicker. First nights sleep with it was great. I love this comforter and would recommend no cover over it. The high thread count makes for extra comfort. I also love the fact that i dont wake up too hot under it. That can happen with down.
Im super picky about bedding; and my main bed has an $800 very high end down comforter, so I wasn’t expecting much with this… having tried a few others (this is for my guest room). Well, its great. Its pretty light weight, which is what I wanted living in SoCal. Feels great, seems to be made quite well, and is a whole lot nicer than anything else I have seen for even triple the price.
