I bought this to coordinate with our bedroom colors that we already have (chocolate brown). It had a nice sateen finish when i took it out of the package, but it lost that sateen finish after I washed it (it smelled funny when i took it out of the packaging). So, that was disappointing. it's larger than the down comforter we have and I'm not sure why. I know you need some space to actually put the comforter inside it but it seems too much. Our comforter is full/queen and that is the size I purchased. Again, disappointing. Neither issues are enough for me to send back though. It is comfortable.
