The pieces arrived in good shape and the color is beautiful. But the comforter is too short, it does not cover the entire top mattress. This left the entire bottom mattress and a few inches of the top mattress exposed. Not very attractive...Yes, i have a pillow top, type mattress. So, this set must be designed for a normal, single/thin type mattress. Its interesting b/c A majority of the sheet sets you buy for a queen sized bed are designed for thick pillowtop mattresses but this comforter is not.
