I have a Cal King bed with a large down comforter that has always been hard to care for because it is white & difficult to clean. This Duvet Cover was my first purchase from Overstock.com & it is wonderful! The subtle stripe pattern on the gray looks very upscale, like something from a hotel. The hand-feel of the cotton fabric is soft & thick with with a nice smooth texture. I haven't washed it yet but I washed the shams & they didn't shrink, warp, or fade. I took one star off for the seams where the button closure is: they are slightly uneven & there were still small chalk marks for where the buttons were sewn on (from the production I guess). I'm sure they will wash off. All in all, this was exactly what I was looking for & the price is stellar. Just a small note: If you have a Cal King Bed with a pillow-top mattress, the duvet cover will not drape over the sides down to the boxspring.
This duvet cover is just slightly larger than my duvet which is perfect. I washed the cover upon receiving it, carefully following instructions on the duvet label. I removed from dryer immediately and smoothed it out flat. Then I turned it inside out and sewed in two strips of bias tape, one in each corner of the closed end. This is a method I saw on Youtube. I also saw on Youtube how to put the duvet cover on the duvet, by rolling it all up like a burrito. So first I tied each of the bottom corners with the bias tape, then rolled everything into a burrito and pulled it through. Now I have a covered duvet that stays in place and looks lovely on my bed. This duvet cover is good quality.
Cover is soft and has held up to one wash so far. The gray is a nice shade and it didn't wrinkle too badly after the dryer. Just wish these things weren't so much money (they're essentially two sheets sewn together). Doesn't have those things inside to hold the comforter in place but that's never been a problem for me as the blankets don't move much (and safety pins work in a pinch). But we wanted a soft, decent quality duvet and this was a good choice.
the duvet was a beautiful color brown and was very soft. The quality wasn't quite as perfect as I had hoped it would be..had a few stiching issues. I ordered a king and it was at least a foot to large which made the comforter slide all over inside, kind of a big pain! All in all for the price, it was well worth it. Four stars****
I spent hours online trying to decide which duvet cover to buy at Overstock! Price was a consideration; I didn't want to go over $$. The choice I finally made is completely satisfactory!! The duvet is beautiful, the color (taupe) is a bit darker than the photo, but for that I am grateful. The texture of the Egyptian cotton is thick and rich feeling!! The fit for my duvet is perfect, and the hidden buttons are very nice! Everything about this duvet cover is perfect! Thanks Overstock for amazing service, speedy delivery and a quality product...makes it only a little less frustrating that I found an almost identical, but not quite as luxurious feeling, duvet cover at a local department store the very next day after placing my order for just $$ after sale discounts!! Now I have two very serviceable duvet covers for years to come for my two guest beds!!
Egyptian Cotton 400 Thread Count Striped Duvet Cover Set is just as advertised with one exception. I ordered Ivory but it is more in the yellow family than it is an Ivory, so if you want more white-like don't order Ivory. It fits well and looks good, the stripes are very attractive.
I got the white one. It came out of the wash looking fine, a little wrinkled, but that's the style right now. It has a smooth, buttery hand. Don't purchase if you're looking for a crisp ironed look, but don't shy away worrying about quality. This is a great duvet cover and the price can't be beat.
Needed a very specific size of duvet to fit a new feather comforter. Unfortunately the one I chose did not match the size promoted on the website and I had to return it. I will say tho, that Overstock goes out of its way to help you out with returns, especially when it is their error. Sent me a shipping label and all I had to do was drop it at UPS. Could not have been easier and the refund was fast.
This duvet served its purpose... but I ended up replacing it after ~6 months. The color is good, the quality is fine, the price is right. What I ultimately didn't like was the fabric: too thick and hot.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is what I expected.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not wonderful quality, but it's priced right.
The king size duvet I bought came quickly and was happy with the initial look and feel of the product. My concern is that after I read the washing/drying instructions, followed them, the results were less than appealing. The duvet was very wrinkled and it took me over 2 hours to iron. I hope I don't have to wash/dry it again any time soon.
Sometimes, I think I'm in France! Under this comfortable, sturdy, timeless, tasteful, goes-with-everything and always looks fresh and inviting duvet cover, (which now has an overstuffed down comforter inside it, though of course this does not come with the cover...), one can get lost in an old-fashioned world of comfort. How can you not sleep well under this? Our sons all wish to take this to college with them, having pared their bedding down to just a bottom fitted sheet with this duvet (cover over comforter) on top. Who needs more? Europeans have had this right all the way along. And this is easy to take on and off to wash. Get one for yourself! You'll be glad you did.
