This comforter has a wonderful soft velvety feel to it. I adore the gold trimmed border and the golden embroidery. It looks very classy and elegant in my room. It is light weight yet warm. I was a little apprehensive about the size charting, as I have a queen size bed and this was marked as a full / queen. I was afraid it would be really short on an over size mattress. It looks great, especially with a bed skirt and duvet. I am very pleased with the baffle box design and overall construction of this comforter. I haven't had this long enough to rate durability or ease of care. This comes packaged very tightly, and because of that, the middle part of the comforter was pretty smooshed in, but it is fluffing out nicely. I am very happy with this purchase so far, and should it change, I'll update my review. A great comforter at a great price. You can't go wrong.
