Great choice for a dorm. I got the Down 3 piece Alternative Set on overstock too. Her plan is to have many design options in her room. Add colorful pillows for immediate change. Cover the comforter with many of the inexpensive option duvet sets. I plan on ordering a set and send it straight to her when she is feeling homesick!
Granted, when purchasing this item, I didn't expect the sheets to be super thick and bulky...however, upon putting the sheets on my bed, I realized how thin they actually are. I order the silver set, and I could literally see the mattress design through the sheets. And if that's not enough...they barely could be tucked in at the foot of the bed. One wrong move, and your sheets go awry! I found a better set at ******* for a better value.
The bright color is noticeable on your bed. The texture of the sheets was comfortable. I feel that they could have been a little thicker in quality. It went nicely with the coloring in the comforter. I really liked the color I chose which was orange.
This sheet set was purchased for a friend who helps care for me (I'm 70 and in a wheelchair more details aren't necessary). She'd become acquainted with my microfiber sheets and absolutely loved them. They are great (!) in handling, on the bed and in the washing machine. In short, they're incredible! She, never having heard of them, was so impressed that I decided this set should be for her. She loves them!
