My wife and I love this comforter. It's very large and covers our king bed nicely. We looked at the dimensions of other comforters and this comforter exceeds others, especially in width. Because of its size, it is somewhat heavy, but we like that feature. The comforter keeps us warmer than others we have purchased, but we live in northern Maine, so we needed something that would keep us comfortable during all four seasons. It's so large that we have to wash it at the laundry mat in one of their big front-loaders, but that's fine with us. The quality of the fabric and stitching is excellent. We're very pleased with this purchase.
I used 2 spreads on twin beds in a guest room. They are not overly bulky spreads, and not heavy...a good weight. What I did not care for (and what is not evident in the picture) are the little stitched rows (about 2" long ea) sprinkled, which pucker. I believe the stitches are filler stabilizers, but they prohibit the bedspreads from laying smooth. I took a sm pair of scissors and took out the stitches...all is good.
I absolutely LOVE this comforter. I wish it wasn't as expensive as it was, but I splurged and it really does look and feel expensive. Not sure what it would cost in a department store, but I don't usually spend over $*** on a comforter. However, in this case I'm very happy with my purchase as it is beautiful and very classy.
This striped queen comforter is so beautiful to the hand and eye. The colors are striking and bold and fits in with my beach theme. The size is generous and the weight is great for year round use. Price was great and it arrived at my home when I expected it to. Had no trouble finding pillows to match the colors. I love it!
