This duvet is beautiful! I trusted the reviews of others and I'm so glad I did! It's exactly what I was hoping for! - it's not bright white; it's off-white but not quite ivory. - it's pretty fluffy, even right out of the box. - even after washing/drying, the duvet keeps it's shape; very pretty - the material on the duvet and the 2 standard pillow shams match however the material on the small lumbar pillow is a lot thinner - you can actually see the insert through the material. (I will probably buy or make a separate cover for the small pillow later. Right now, it's in my closet). Also, the shipping on this order was extremely FAST! I got it 2 days after I placed the order!
