We needed a lightweight bedspread because we tend to get very warm with our Temperpedic mattress. This is lightweight cotton but the mattelasse weave and design give the appearance of good quality and we are very pleased with the look and weight for year round comfort.The King size fit perfectly on arrival for a bedspread, but I must give a word of caution, it did shrink when we washed it. Now if we want it to be used as a bedspread,one side must be longer than the other or we will balance it and use a bedskirt. Still, we like it enough to work with it.
The bedspread looks really nice once the bed is made, but it takes longer to make the bed now than with the old down comforter (which we bought from Overstock and love--just wanted a change). It's hard to get the pattern lined up so it looks good on the bed. For us, it just doesn't work well. However, I washed the bedspread before using it, and it washes beautifully! Mixed feelings about this purchase. The quality is good; no problems there.
This is an amazing bed cover. I haven't used it yet but it is made exceptionally well and the colors are true to the picture. I can't wait for spring to put it on the bed. I received the bedspread in just a couple of days too. I love overstock.com!!!
I am happy with this bedspread. Another customer had noted how thin this bedspread is, that is very true. I would say it feels more like a heavy table cloth than a coverlet. With that said, if the thinness is not a problem, I think it looks good on my bed. I have not washed it yet, but since it is 100% cotton I expect it to shrink. I bought the king size for a king size bed, my bed is 28" tall and the bedspread does not reach the floor on either side. I like that you can flip it over and get a different look.
I was super excited about this bedspread! Until I got it. I hate that they picture the bedspread with the shams, when they are not included... nor are they available. The bedspread without the shams is silly. The bedspread is nice quality, however I read many reviews on it before I bought, I didn't realize HOW thin it really would be. This bedspread is almost sheet thin. Super light weight and should be used for looks only. I would NOT have bought this bedspread had I seen it first.
If you like weight and like traditional design you'll like this. For Florida and using over a duvet/coverlet is a bit heavy - need to take off to sleep. will give away or use as a tablecloth as nice material and is reversible but not enough pizazz! very subtle colors -
These are lovely and perfect for Spring & Summer. I always change out my bedding for the Spring & Summer, usually to a lighter color and wieght. I found these at Overstock and took a chance and ordered them. They can be flipped over for the opposite effect (more white or more of the color). Supper happy with this purchas
I got king for a queen-sized bed because I've bought other bedspreads on Overstock and they have shrunken. I have to wash my bedding in hot water because of allergies. This didn't shrink much and is very long on all sides; however, the edging (which is not shown) did pucker a little. It is very pretty on the bed and I love that it's reversible. It is not quilted at all and is quite thin; hence, I believe the word "matelasse" is quite deceiving in that regard. Overall I am happy with it, even though it is not warm. I'll just use it for summer.
Wasn't sure about the colors online but the muted neutral colors for this Matelasse bedspread worked perfect in my bedroom. Nice and long for my king size bed and it's not too heavy. I'm sure it will work well by itself in the summer with just the sheets and with the addition of a blanket, it's nice and cozy for winter.
