Comforter & (2) Pillow Shams 5 Stars - Bed skirt -1 star. I was concerned when the product description said polyester and there were no reviews, but the picture looked good so I thought I would give it a try. The comforter and (2) pillow shams are AWESOME! (note the product picture doesn't display the bed skirt). Colors and design are exactly as pictured. Quality and material is way better than expected - I was concerned it was going to be more of a satin material that would snag - but it's not. The bed skirt is in (3) separate pieces that you "screw" into the box spring, which is a cool idea but the material of the bed skirt is awful and looks terribly cheap. Fortunately I have a bed with side rails and a foot board so I really didn't need them. My husband hates to look at uncovered box spring so I tried to put them on to cover up that part of the bed but just couldn't stand how bad it looked. If you don't need a bed skirt it is totally worth the money - if you do, look for something else. They should just add a couple throw pillow to the package and forget about the bed skirt. I would definately purchase a comforter made by this company again.
I put it on the bed and it is sooo wrinkled. i ironed and steamed it and i think the material is almost pleated. I don't know if i will keep it as i don't think you can sit on it and when used as a comforter it may wrinkle more. It is beautiful otherwise and if for show will be ok, would like to know if it holds up actually using it or does it wrinkle up again. the shams material is really wrinkled even after ironing so i imagine its the kind of material they used little pleats but not actually pleats. the skirt irons flat and i like the style no lifting of the mattress. the color is very light like a pale cream. I ordered 5 pillows from same company and am now worried how they will be. i may be returning everything. It says dry clean and i am sure thats the way u would have to go, most times u can wash them anyway, but not this material and i wonder how that is going to come out when dry cleaned. A lovely set just don't know if its serviceable. The other colors have more reviews i am going to post on theirs to see if it wrinkles up again when sat on or used for a while. Will post back if i return it.
I love the look of this comforter so much, I'm actually considering keeping it even though it is very wrinkled and a bit stiff. I've tried to iron it and steam it. They will not go away. Also, there is a tear near the edge down the side. It almost looks as though the fabric is defective, so I'm waiting to see if any more tears show up elsewhere. This tear is about 2" long, then further down 1" and the threads are separated, then torn apart.
Looks more expensive tthan what I paid for it. The only problem I have is when I removed it from the package it was very wrinkled and have not been able to get wrinkles out yet. I would still consider buying this again. I have been ordering from Overstock for quite sometime now and have never been disappointed!!
