I did alot of research before I bought this comforter-- comparing the fill power and prices and finally decided on this one. And I'm so glad I did. It's so nice and warm; the fill power is just the right amount-- it's not too heavy but not light and flat either. It's just perfect.
Outstanding size and quality for the money. It definitely does not "crinkle" or "crunch", as some do, to keep you awake, is very warm especially with a fannel duvet cover, perfect for a 63 degree or cooler bedroom. The oversize is perfect for deep mattresses, and I had been looking for this for a long time for my King bed. The amount of down is just perfect. Nothing fancy with the cover, and don't think you have to have higher TC for a good comforter. This will satisfy and not break the bank!
I am very disappointed in this product. It looks nice, but there is no way it is 500 fill. We already own several down comforters, so I can state this. This is a low-fill down comfortor for warmer temperatures. As far as it goes, it is fine, but don't be confused that it actually has much loft. Also, it is not "oversized" as is stated in the description. This is a standard size comforter, which means it is actually a little small for a duvet cover purchased for the same size. (For some reason, they make duvet covers much bigger than the standard sizes of comforters.) I will be returning my purchase, as it was not what I thought it would be. The photo on the page shows a plump thick down comforter, and this is NOT plump and thick.
After carefully reading all of the reviews and doing some additional research, I figured I was getting a bargain. I was so excited to receive my purchase by the 3rd day, but my excitment quickly turned to disappoint. After "airing and fluffing" this item, it still does NOT resemble the "fluffiness" that is pictured. The over fill mentioned would lead you to believe that this is going to be super fluffy. This is not the case at all. Some parts of the comforter is visibly more flatter then others. Maybe I ended up with a bad one, but in either event, I am none to pleased to have spent money on something I am not happy with. It will be going back.
I received this comforter and it is flat as a pancake, has no lift to it at all even after weeks on my bed. As it's complicated to make a return and I've had problems before I opted to keep it anyway to use a a light light weight summer alternative
this comfortable looks and feels really nice...but not unless you want to get suffocated by feathers endlessly comming out of the comfortable DON'T BUY IT!!!...this product just looks nice...feathers just never stop comming out i even bought a duvet cover...WARNING DO NOT BUY!!
I bought this on Cybermonday on a whim. Free shipping, ... no questions asked. Shipping was quite fast. After taking out of box, I gave her the fluffing up! And fluff-up she did, quite nicely. She sleeps just as good as she fluffs; It's like floating on a cloud. I bought the King size version but sleep on a full-size futon. So I fold her in half and sort of wrap myself in her like a soft taco. I haven't slept so good in sooo long. Only problem is; I can't get out of bed in the morning -cause it feels sooo good to just lay there. It feels like a million tiny angels are gently pressing upon my every part with tiny little fluffy cotton balls.
I've had several down comforters over the years and have had the pleasure of sleeping under them in fancy hotels and the guestrooms of my friends both in the US and in Europe. Suffice it to say that I'm familiar with the whole range of down comforters that one can find across the globe. This Oversized Egyptian 325 Thread Count Down Comforter is dreamy. It is light, fluffy, and with a good fluffing is almost 6" thick mid-baffle. There are no problems with feathers poking through. I can't imagine what the critics are complaining about with this product, unless, perhaps they got the odd dud-factory reject. This item isn't cheap, but the quality/value ratio is superb. And let's be honest; how many other products do you spend 8 hours/ day with?? Do it! T. Asheville, NC
This comforter is everything it should be: exquisitely soft, heavy and of course very hot! Who needs an electric blanket when you can wrap up in luxurious goose down? The feather count is well distributed and it fills my duvet perfectly. Quality and price cannot be beat! This baby's fabulous!
So I went back and forth between this comforter and the Hotel ones. I was looking for one big enough to fit "well" in a King Duvet since many of the king comforters are different sizes. This one was comparable to the larger size comforters. I did all the checking - fill, stitching, etc, and kept coming back to this one as it looked so incredibly full and fluffy in the pic. I followed the instructions....let the comforter air out for several days, etc and still.....not fluffy. For the hassle of having to return it, I am keeping it, but would have really liked the picture to do it justice. I think the comforters will be OK, just not great.

Pros: - Comforter is nice & warm. - Subtle striped design is pretty. - Price is nice. - Stitching looks solid, no sign of escaping feathers (yet). Cons: - The comforter is flat and looks NOTHING like the one pictured. We've aired it out well, periodically shaken it out, and tried to fluff it up, and it is NOT fluffy. Warm, but NOT fluffy. If you're looking for one that looks like the luxuriously fluffy one in the picture, this is not it. - We've had the comforter for almost 3 weeks, and it still retains a faint smell. Not very pleasant to snuggle up under the cover and still be able to smell something off, even after a few weeks. Overall: You get what you pay for. We paid 3 or 4 times as much for another down comforter that we love and never had any issues with... but then, it really was much more expensive. For the price, I suppose I should have expected the compromise in quality.
I bought this comforter after reading several reviews. I really like it. I'm one to get cold easily and this comforter keeps you nice and warm. The length is also nice, because it hangs long at the foot of the bed, However, there is not much overhang on the sides. I did experience the loft flying as soon as I took it out of the bag. I use a duvet cover and some of the loft still comes out. For the price, I can deal with that.
Very skimpy on down stuffing-not w/ the money spent at all! I would not have selected this item in person and certainly not paid the $100+ sell price. Fabric was nice, but I use a duvet so this makes no difference in comfort. Dissappointed with thin stuffing!!! Description did not say this was a "very light (thin stuffing) comforter. Not happy w/ purchase.
The comforter is great. I ordered oversized because regular downs you have to order a size bigger than your bed and i have a king. I researched a lot before buying this item. it is soft, full, warm and plenty big enough. the only con I have is that it isn't quite as full as the description leads you to believe and there is a design on the comforter that you can't see online and i wasn't expecting. Besides that it is great. I would reccomend it to friends.
I bought this after buying a more expensive one with a higher thread count. The one I previously bought was missing feathers in some cells and it was very heavy and hot. This one is perfect for us. I live in Louisiana. It is heavy enough to feel comfortable, but it doesn't suffocate. I was very impressed with this one after buying the other way more expensive one. So far I haven't had any problems with feathers coming out. The stitching is good and it has been great.
This comforter is fabulous. The fabric is not soft, though I'm sure it will soften with extended use, but it is very well put together, very fluffy and very warm. It's very cuddly, as good quality down should be. All the boxes are sealed completely, unlike other comforters where the boxes are only partial so the down can shift around the comforter. There was no "down" smell when I first got it. The first time I took it out of the packaging, I shook it a bit and laid it on the bed to air out, a couple hours later it was enormous and puffy. I slept with it that night and by the time I woke up in the morning, it had expanded even more. It was like sleeping nested in a cloud. I will be using it with a soft duvet cover, so the fabric softness doesn't matter, though the design IS very pretty and elegant-looking. no funny seams or bad stitching anywhere that I could find. This was a fabulous buy, it would have definitely cost hundreds in a store.
I've had this comforter for two months now and I love it - it's so warm!!!! I have definitely lowered my thermostat a couple of degrees at night since getting this comforter. I do use a duvet cover, but have not noticed any loose feathers. I have always used a king size comforter on my queen bed, so it's plenty big. Thus far, it's been a great deal for the money and I'm very satisfied.
The only good thing about this comforter is the size. It is def. oversized. Goes down about 12" on the size and double that at the end. Covers the bed beautifully. BUT it is flat as a pancake. It is pretty warm, but not warmer then the one I bought before for less then $60. I want to return it, still deciding if the look is worth keeping it at the crazy high price.
After doing tons of research this was the one I decided to go with. Light, fluffy and something I could use yr round. I would definitely buy this item again if I had to do it all over. I also got a feather bed to make my bed extremely high and now my friends call my bed The Cloud :) Love it!
