I loved the comforter and the color could not have been more perfect however, it was WAY short of meeting the needs of my king pillow top mattress and barely covers the top of the mattress (NO comforter falls down the sides at all). I'm glad I had purchased a decorated quilt to go over the top of it, anyhow, otherwise I'd have no alternative but to return it- and I want to keep it. It's warm, it's comfy, VERY puffy, and the color, as stated, is perfect (I got periwinkle- it's a bluish lavender-- very pretty). So if you need a queen, do yourself a favor and buy a king, and if you need a full, go with queen, etc... it will make sense when you see it, I promise. And if you need a true king, I hope you aren't fussy about your sheets showing on the sides (all the way down the sides, that is).
WARMTH: this is a really comfortable and warm comforter. i love it a lot. COLORS: i ordered "Ivory" but received a white one. later, a customer rep told me that the pictures were not quite real: the comforter should look like a white down without colors. so i purchased a duvet cover that fits this over-sized comforter. ALERT: the comforter's size is 88x90. i strongly recommend you buy a 90x90 duvet cover rather than 88x88. AVOID 86x86 covers---they won't fit. don't repeat my mistake. hope this helps.
I needed a down comforter that was machine washable because with two dogs who sleep on the end of the bed, dirty collects frequently. I love down comforters but it is usually to much of a hassle to own one because they were too delicate to last. The fabric on this comforter is tough enough to withstand the dogs but soft enough that we all love to sleep with it.
I am very happy with this comforter. I don't think you can find a warmer or higher quality one at this price. In fact, a saw a very similar Martha Stewart comforter for triple the price. Just one thing...the comforter arrives in a plain, clear plastic bag. No insert, labels, stickers..nothing specifying a specific brand. Not even Overstock. This doesn't bother me, but I know some people like to know the brand of what they are buying. Warmth: I think it is very warm and cozy. Much warmer than a regular comforter. It's also nice and fluffy. Color: I bought the periwinkle. It is a more muted color than it appears on my monitor, but the general hue is correct. Size: I bought the kind size and it fits a queen size bed generously, but I would recommend buying the next size up when possible. Especially considering the cost is the same for all sizes (which is not usually the case). Material: I think it feels pretty good for a 230 thread count. I recently bought another comforter from overstock that has a 600 thread count. While the 600 definitely feels softer and smoother, it's not a huge difference. As far as that "crunchy" sound, it's not too bad and you may not even notice it. It's kind of like the sound your arms make when wearing a puffy "north face" kind of coat. Although, go with a higher thread count if you think it will bother you. The 600 is much better when it comes to that.
I bought this for my father who is extremely picky. He cannot tolerate the heavy feeling of blankets or comforters, but really likes this comforter. His room gets very chilly compared to the rest of the house. He loves the warmth and lightness. I ordered the khaki and it is very nice. I highly recommend.
This comforter is filled with nice, soft puffy material, but the outside is so rough I couldn't even sleep with it for one night. When you move, it sounds like you're sleeping with paper, not a comforter. Wouldn't recommend this, will be returning it for a higher thread count comforter.
This comforter is a great value for the price. It is soft, warm and durable. Not the most luxurious fabric perhaps, but it can be put in a duvet for a more upscale look. So far it is doing a terrific job of keeping me warm in my freezing Chicago apartment.
I love my new comforter. It was shipped quickly and inexpensively. It does not make a lot of noise as another reviewer claimed. It is warm but not too warm where you sweat all night. It's not so big and fluffy like my old down comforter that looked sloppy on the bed. It's easy to pull back and make in the morning. It is a great buy for the money. I will order from Overstock again.
This blanket is really nice! The color definately wasn't what it was supposed to be (plum instead of a really dark purple), but its still really pretty. It washes fine and it doesn't make any weird noises like some people have mentioned. The size is also nice for my full size bed, there is plenty of over hang, but if you like a really big blanket I suppose you could get the next size up. I love sleeping with this blanket and would highly recommend it to anybody, especially because it was so cheap!
I bought this comforter to replace my down comforter which was spewing feathers everywhere. This comforter gives the same warmth and is light as a feather without the hassel of vacuuming them up on a daily basis. It is also machine washable which the real down is not. I am thrilled with my purchase. The color was exact to the swatch and I am thinking about replacing all of the comforters in my house with this same product.
I purchased this comforter for my son. I was surprised how incredibly lofty and warm it was! My son uses it with a duvet, since I got him a great child-friendly one but it looks like the comforter can be used without a duvet as well. My son loves the fact that he has the puffiest puff (that's what we call comforters) in the house. If I didn't already have a down comforter for my bed, I would get one for myself too!
I was very surprised when I received the comforter at the quality. I am very particular about my bedding and always buy the best. I bought this as a spare for grandkids visiting and when I opened this and felt the quality of the comforter, the softness and how well made this was, I am going to use it in the master suite. I have learned it is not always true that 'you get what you pay for.' THis was inexpensive and the quality was no less than a $400 comforter. I would recommend this to anyone. I bet they won't last!
This is a great comforter at a great price! My friends and family comment on how soft and warm they are. I have bought 3 already for my family and will be buying a few more today. They get softer with each washing and lose the "sleeping bag noise" over time. My overnight guests love them!
I am returning this "comforter" because it looks and feels like a sleeping bag. It is cheap and makes noise when it moves (so, perfect for something you would sleep with). Not only is it no where near qualified to be described as "luxury", the price of it isn't even remotely justifiable. Normally I'm really bad at returning things so I just shove them in a closet or donate them, but this I am returning on principle because you could get a whole "bed in a bag" that would feel better than this material for half the price. I didn't even have bedding this low-end when I was starving in college and had to buy my linens at the giant retailer that rhymes with shmol shmart.
The comforter is a nice product. However, when I received it, I'm pretty sure it wasn't in it's original packaging. It looked loosely folded up and put in a big plastic bag and sent in a beat up box. I know the packaging isn't that indicative of a bad product, however, it did make me question where the comforter came from, which is a bit of a turn off for making further purchases. I have purchased many things from Overstock, however, and have never been disappointed. I'm not disappointed in this product; it's a quality product and very reasonibly priced, but I should not feel like it was owned by someone else first...regardless if it had been bought and returned before. I do recommend this, but Overstock should repackage things better. Period.
I read amazing reviews about this item and was very exited to have a new comforter for winter. I ordered this in black and it reminded me of a sleeping bag. The material isn't at all what I expected. On my bed it looked and kind of cheap, really bulky and didn't look like it fit my bed quite right. As I was taking it out of the packaging and putting it on my bed some of the material inside started to come out in tiny bits. I wanted something softer and less... shiny?
