As many others have stated, this is much more of a blanket than a comforter--it has a pleasant weightiness to it like a blanket. I've had it for a few months, and I'm quite happy with it. The silk was not stinky at all. So far I haven't noticed any improvement in my allergies, though they aren't terribly severe to begin with. It's warm enough for fall and spring, but now that it's colder in my apartment, I have been this under my down comforter and I am REALLY cozy. If I only had this, I'd be a bit chilly, so next year, I'm dreaming of implementing a two-layer silk blanket system: one for summer months, two for winter months.
This comforter has a very strong fishy smell. It is unbearable. I spent forty dollars having it dry cleaned, but it still smells very badly. I feel cheated, even though the statement describing the product includes the words "No returns on this product." That should have been a clue. I just lost $***.** for nothing. I really wanted a cotton-covered silk-filled comforter, but what I got was a stink bomb. No thanks.
When I got this comforter in it's nice little case, I knew it was good quality. I opened it and felt the material, then pulled it out and couldn't believe the stitching and the wonderful feel of the material. I am PICKY about bedding, I only get the finest and I am so pleased with this. I had a quilt on the bed, then quickly changed it to this comforter to try it out for the first night. It is a little heavier than expected, so I feel the warmth, so it's great for cold climates even tho i'm in the tropics, we will see how this does compared to my quilt. Great color, quality and price. Highly recommend to anyone!
Love this comforter. For me it is not warm enough. I am always cold. To give you an idea when it is in the high8 80's into the 90's and humid I feel great, not hot at all and I don't feel the humidity. It works great for my husband.. I wiill buy another for the summer and put two in a duvet cover. This should work fine. I wish they would have this in colors not just the white.
I ordered this comforter last fall and I really love the way it feels. As others have said, it's perfect for summer use. I got the queen size which is supposed to be 86 x 86 and if it had been that size, I would have given it 5 stars. In reality, it's 79 x 80. It's never been washed but has been to the dry cleaner once. It definitely is not big enough to cover my queen Tempur Pedic mattress.
I am surprised and pleased to find this comforter really is just the right weight for summer nights. It's not heavy at all, yet it does do exactly what one reviewer said: It drapes around you and keeps you really warm in the chilly early-morning hours. Some reviewers have complained about a chemical odor on opening the package. I have not had this experience at all. The comforter came out of the package smelling perfectly acceptable, and I have a very keen sense of smell. I know exactly what people are talking about though I recently ordered a blouse from another website and it really did smell like chemicals. Fortunately, it was a blouse, not a quilt, so very easy to wash and get rid of the odor. I should note our cat loves the comforter too, so I really need to get a cotton cover for it!
I have had comforters previously(down), and decided to try this on a whim. I Love this silk filled comforter! It's as warm as it needs to be for the temperature in the room. Light weight, yet thin, and not bulky like a down comforter, so it looks much more sleek on your bed. Easily folds up for storage during the summer months. The fabric is excellent quality fine cotton. I am impressed with the look of it, and even more impressed with the functionality.
I previously bought one of these comforters and I loved it but I left it at a friends house and she loved it so I let her keep it... I was heartbroken because I missed it. This comforter is amazing for the money. It is so soft, just the right weight for any season. Once you have it you will be hooked. It has no smell out of the box. It isn't bulky but once you fluff it you can feel how soft it is. I couldn't be happier. I'm buying 3 more... One for the guest room, one as a gift and the other for my son because he loves sleeping with mine. You can't buy a silk comforter for under $XXX. It's soft on the inside and the outside. It's the perfect weight. No sweating while you sleep. It's cozy and cool. I strongly recommend this comforter. :-)
This comforter is okay, felt heavy to me. It's nicely made and hypoallergenic but I missed my fluffy down comforter so I put this silk comforter in my duvet cover and placed it on top of my down filled comforter. It makes my duvet lay neatly and I pull it down at night and snuggle under my down-filled comforter. I'm not unhappy that I bought it but don't believe all the Hype on here or you'll be disappointed!
