Received this bedding for my daughter and was thrilled. After we put it on her bed the comforter rubbed all over her wall and left black markings.l. I decided to wash the comforter and that was a mistake. All the black fadded and it looked terrible. She no longer wants it on her bed and I can't blame her.
I'm moving into a new apartment so I go online to find a comforter to match the color scheme of my bedroom. This 5 piece comforter set jumped out at me immediately, the colors matched perfectly and I love the fact that it is reversible! Two comforters in one basically, and the pricing was affordable being that it came with two decorative pillows instead of just one. It was shipped very promptly and in great condition so no complaints there. But when I opened the package to see my new bedding I was a little bummed. The colors weren't as vibrant as the image depicted and it felt cheaply made. This comforter would be fitting for someone in middle school or high school. But for a woman in her mid twenties, I would beg to differ. I guess I just have higher standards for color and material quality. I will never buy a cotton comforter again, you can bet that.
I loved this set, but it is only pretty until you have to wash it. As soon as you wash it, the black turns to a faded, worn black and the color no longer pops. The whole look goes from fab to drab in one wash cycle. If you are just trying to keep warm, then you will probably be okay. It does serve that purpose.
We got the comforter in and it was very pretty matched my daughters room perfectly. However, it smelled terrible!! So I washed it and it fell apart. The hem came undone and cotton was every where. My daughter was so disappointed because it was never even put on her bed. We were disappointed this happened and it so easily was ruined.
This is perfect for a college student's apartment or child's bedroom. After washing in cold and hanging to dry, there weren't any issues with color rubbing off or bleeding. My daughter really likes the set, although it is hard to find matching sheets. My only choice was white.
This is the worst quality you can get. Washed twice according to instructions on tag.... completed faded, bally and fabric even torn. You have to wash immediately because the smell is so strong of ink/chemicals. I should have read the reviews. Shame on overstock for selling a product of such bad quality. Not even a one star!
I have not washed this item yet as it is on a bed in my guest bedroom. However, I do plan on washing it in COLD water to avoid fading, as stated by a few other reviews. I like the whole ensemble, it looks classy and I really like how you can reverse the pillows and the comforter for a different look. I had black bed sheets which gave the whole bed a real chic look. I really hope is does not fade, but even if it did fade a bit, I think I would still like it..... Plus I had a ** on I only paid *** for a KING set, so I can't complain. The fabric is a bit stiff, which is why I think many washed it out of the box, but I think the quality is just fine for the price.
I read all the reviews before I purchased this, and specifically noted the fading people complained about. I figured they just didn't follow the washing instructions....WRONG. I followed them to the T and it faded terribly on the first wash. Thank goodness I washed it as soon as I got it so that I could realize I needed to return it within the timeframe. Overstock handled my return wonderfully and paid for he return shipping. But there is something wrong with the way this is made.
My sister in law bought this for my daughter for her birthday and it's amazingly soft. The pattern on it is just her style (not too girly) so she loves it. Now I just need to find matching window treatments! Love love love. Highly recommended for those who can't find a non-girly bed for a girl that wants style.
I am the type of person that loves to be bundled up when I sleep no matter how hot it is. However this comforter can get a little stuffy at night. Overall it seems to be of good quality although a few strings have been hanging off of it. I would totally recommend this product and the price isn't too bad for all that you get. The pillows are nice decoration too.
