I have been thinking about buying this set for a while, as the photo shows a crisp, elegant comforter that to me appeared more substantial than it is. My package arrived quickly, for my birthday, and all seemed fine. When I opened it up, the fabric was very thin and shiny, and the set was terribly wrinkled. There was a snag on the top, which would leave a hole if I trimmed it back. The color was fine, as was the design. It just lacked that feeling of elegance - a fabric weight and crispness I was expecting from the photo and a brand new comforter...so sadly, back it goes.
This comforter is pretty good for the price, it's soft and light weight. I bought a king and replaced a heavier comforter at 4x times the price. During winter, I switched to a down comforter, so no problem. One thing I notice is that it picks up less cat hair due to the fabric pattern topside-- which is a good thing too.
We just bought a 100 year old home and have a long list of home improvement projects. Update the guest room is not at the top of that list despite the navy floral carpet that clashes with almost everything I own. I purchased this bed set to help pull the room together (and diminish eye bleeds every time I walk past the room). Looks nice, color is accurate, the simple pattern does not overwhelm the room, feels nice and the cost was right. I'm going with four stars since I haven't had to wash it enough to tell how it will hold up over time.
Item was affordable -- Color was perfect. However, inside-stuffing is not evenly and quality overall is just marginal in my opinion. Next comforter I order will have a nicer "edge" with piping, etc. -- AND I will probably buy one that has the extra decorative pillows.... Will keep it and use it for awhile until I find something nicer.
The only thing that turned out okay was the color of the comforter. Right when I got it, I washed it according to manufacturer's label and the threading came loose and it isn't very soft at all. The comforter reminds me of a cheap sleeping bag without a zipper. The pillow shams are extremely thin and after the first wash, the pillows barely went in without almost tearing the fabric. If the product had been $@#$% less, I would have been satisfied, but for almost $!@#$, it was not worth it to me and we won't even be using it. I wish the fabric was nicer because the color is perfect and it looks fancier than it is.
Tried many other sets that were much more expensive, but this one gave the room a classy look. Doesn't come wtih a bedskirt which was okay for me because we have a platform bed. I like the satin stripe, which dresses it up. I ordered the red which is a nice wine color.
Finally took this set out of the bag for a guest at holiday time. Had I known it looked so cheap before I would have returned it. Looks nothing like the picture which has a smooth rich look. The fabric was very wrinkled with a cheap satin finish along with some weird dart stitching throughout. I would not recommend this set. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!
