When I took this product out of the package, it was dirty and had a huge stain on the duvet. I was completely grossed out and the worst part was that I had purchased it before I moved, and by the time I had opened the brand new package to put in my new home the return window was up so I had to keep the dirty duvet. Complete waste of money, not to mention a health hazard! Very upset with the quality and overstock's return policy. I learned from this experience to open everything immediately, whether you are using it right away or not!
I washed the duvet cover and pillow shams before using them. I also washed a cotton mattress pad with them (not purchased from Overstock). The mattress pad turned green. I noticed also the pattern on the duvet cover is faded in some areas. So apparently the fabric does not hold its color. It's in a guest room, so I don't have to look at it every day. When the time comes, I will replace it.
This cover is made out of microfiber, so the fabric is thinner than you may expect. The cover is pretty well-made, and fit well, The colors are much nicer than the picture shows, the blue is a really pretty teal, and the green almost a pale pea color.Washes and drys well.
This duvet is OK, soft and true to the colors in the photo. Not sure how long it will last, the material seems somehwat flimsy. Don't care for the black flowers either - would have looked better to leave them out. I'm going to use it in the guest room.
Super soft, even after wash. My quilt moves around in it a bit, but it's because I have a full quilt (and my bed is queen... this is made for full and queen). Color is true... love the boyish stripes on one side, and the beautiful florals on the other (suits my husband and me as well!). Def will recommend... again, very soft. : )
The fabric was nice as stated in other reviews but the pattern is kind of ackward with the random black flower things over the pretty blue flowers. The striped side is much better. I bought it for my own room but I think I will put it in the guest room. But for the price you can't go wrong.
I bought this on Overstock on sale price and it is so very nice for the price I paid. Made of a delightfully light microfiber that is still dense enough to adequately cover the comforter. The duvet is generously sized to cover my thick mattress as well, and the pattern and colors are refreshing and sophisticated. It washes wonderfully as well. Very nice buy!
It's not that the product itself was poor - it was actually quite lovely, but it is NOT a duvet - it's a comforter set and shams. I really was looking for a duvet, so I was disappointed when this item came. O just needs to edit the description. They were very accommodating when I asked to return it.
This duvet set arrived promptly, carefully packed and it is even more lovely than I pictured. I agree with other reviews that this duvet set is quality and inexpensive. It fits my down comforter well and has plenty of overhand. The colors are bright and true, the pillow shams fit perfectly. It is lightweight and yet provides the extra layer of warmth that I wanted for winter. I am thrilled with this purchase.
I really like the colors and quality, especially since duvets can sometimes be pricey I was very happy with this one. If you have a tall bed as so many are these days I might recommend you get the King size instead of Queen so that it will hang down farther. If I didn't already have a queen Down Comforter I would have sent it back and got the King size but then I would have had to purchase a King Down Comforter and I already had a queen. However if you purchase the King you are also then stuck with the King sized pillow cases on a Queen Bed. If your bed is a fairly normal height the Queen would be fine. This would be the case with any duvet or comforter and I wouldn't consider this a defect or negative mark.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Almost perfectly - not quite as bright as pictured but doesn't look muted and faded out either.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice - I've not washed it yet but it appears to be fine.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very
