I should have returned the "set" immediately, but thought a washing would fade the shams so that they would match the much paler cover. The duvet cover was flimsy, so I attached a print sheet to it and have a somewhat reversible duvet. I was very disappointed in myself for not returning it. The shams and duvet cover bore no resemblance to each other color-wise. I expect Overstock would have refunded my purchase, they always do, but I couldn't bring myself to return a washed set.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Duvet cover and shams didn't match
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. crappy, in a word
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? not accurate
This is the worst thing I ever bought from Overstock. It is so bad, that have not bought anything there in a long time until today. I have historically been a fairly regular customer, and especially like the bedding and linens. I am really angry with myself for not returning it after first wash - I always wash bedding before using. From the get-go, it was obvious that it was very poorly made, the cotton was mediocre, and the seams started tearing the first time I put it on my comforter. I had intended to come back and write this review for a long time, but never did it. I would give it zero stars but I am not sure if that is an option.
Does anyone remember the days when one purchased Egyptian cotton and it was silky and the more you wash it the silkier it got? Gone are those days. Now it seems as if brushed cotton is being passed off as egyptian cotton. This is no exception, although it feels more like egyptian cotton than the numerous other products I have purchased attempting to find one. With that said, if you are looking for a duvet that does not hold pet hair and down feathers, keep moving.
The duvet is a very pretty, rich color (burgundy) but I've only had it on a day or 2 and I'm really not sure I want to keep it. I intentionally bought one with a lower thread count to keep it from being too heavy (or hot). I don't need a lot of warmth to sleep and we have another one with a 600 thread count and it is soooo heavy it's actually hard for me to lift when the comforter is in it. But, that one is Egyptian cotton and it feels so much better against the skin than this one does. It's just not as soft as I'd hoped (I pre-washed) but it still feels hotter than I like.
I purchase this duvet cover set online after I ordered 2 different ones from a known department store line. The sizes from the department store were way off and didnt look like the pictures I had seen on line. This duvet coverlet fit my King size bed with some extra to share since my husband likes to steel the covers. It not to hot when you sleep under it. I really like it because I can put a light weight blanket in it later if I need to. The only slightly negitive thing is the color. it is a little pink (er) than I wanted but a previous blog told me this also. It actually pulls the pink color out of my background colors in my comfortor pillows. Great buy for the money
I absolutely love this duvet and sham set. I ordered the gold to go with a light seaglass blue/green in my bedroom, and the colors go beautifully together. The fabric is super soft, and though it does wrinkle when dried, the wrinkles work themselves out within a few hours. The gold is definitely more of a gold/mango than a true gold gold/yellow, a very soft, warm tone. The color and price sold me when compared with other options on overstock. The only thing I don't love is that fuzz and lint are hard to remove from the fabric. Nothing a lint brush couldn't handle, but it would be nice to clean with a swipe of my hand (I guess part of the trade off of having a soft cotton duvet). Overall, fabulous for the money, I don't regret my purchase one bit!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes

- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
would not recommend this product. The cover had a hole in it. I did not notice until I had washed it and put it over my white feather comforter. The white really showed up thru the red cover that I had purchased. Too late to return since I had washed it. It does really wrinkle pretty badly. The one positive was the color is nice and the size was big enough for the comforter to fit well in it. Due to the hole and wrinkle issue, would not recommend this.
I am a little disappointed in this duvet cover. First of all, the measurements online were incorrect. It stated 108 x 90 and the package says 106 x 92. I spent a lot of time online looking for a 108 x 90 duvet cover. It fits ok, so I'm not too upset about it, but it was deceiving. Second, it was very pretty when I took it out of the package and when I washed it, it lost a lot of its luster. Third and finally, after I washed the cover, it came out with little thread pills all over it. I had to lint roll the whole thing, on both sides. I hope this is just a first time wash incident. So overall, the cover is ok. I have been looking forward to its arrival and was a little let down.
I purchased this in the burgundy color which is absolutely beautiful............the material is very soft and silky and does feel more like silk than cotton. My only reservation about this is that it feels a bit thin, although that really doesn't matter. The overall quality seems very good, although I haven't had it long enough to wash it, and as far as wrinkles go............cotton just does that and since I have a dog and cat who also sleep in my bed, I'm not that fussy about wrinkles................I like it very much, and am pleased with my purchase.
This item was described as "wrinkle resistant." I do not agree. It is a wrinkled mess after only a few days on the bed. Every wrinkle shows and it looks very sloppy. I am actually looking to replace the item with something more durable. I am very disappointed in this product.
This is exactly what I was looking for. Nice solid color duvet, to cover my down blanket that keeps shedding more than my cat in springtime. I got the taupe color, very nice and neutral. The fabric is very soft and drapes very well. Good value and quality!
I am so surprised at other reviews! Yes, it's lightweight. But it is as soft as sleeping on a cloud, and I am a bedding snob. My daughter, who has a $1200 mattress would rather sleep on her sister's $300 mattress because this comforter cover is on it! All 3 of my teens compete for its use, which is why I'm buying two more. It has withstood 16 months' of washings without any problems. We have it in white, so there are no matching/dye lot issues. In fact, I'm going to buy a set for my in-laws too; that makes 3 more...
