I am so glad that I purchased this bedding set. It is absolutely gorgeous and softer than I could have imagined. My main concern was softness, since it already looked beautiful in the pictures. I was not disappointed!! The comforter is so lightweight and plush in addition to being soft. I bought a purplish quilt set (at Target) that matches perfectly. I can't wait to get into bed at night. I cannot recommend this set highly enough!
