Overall .... GREAT!

I received this in the mail today. The first thing I did was put it on my bed because I am so tired of king size comforters that just cover the top. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this comforter is in fact as big as it claims. It overhangs all three sides of the bed very nicely. It has a good heft to it and the cotton cover is very soft. While I haven't slept under it, it washed well, and dried nicely (I dried it with 3 tennis balls to keep the fluff). The biggest issue I have is that due to its extremely large size, I am having trouble finding a duvet cover that will fit. Because it is white, I don't think that my house with 3 dogs and a rabbit will be conducive to keeping it clean. Plus, stuffing the whole thing in my front load washer works, but is not something I want to do weekly. Thus, a duvet cover is a necessity. Most oversized duvet covers are 98x102 but this comforter is 108 so that creates an issue. That means I need to head to the fabric store and buy fabric to make a cover. Since this is not meant to be put into a duvet, it also does not have the corner ties. Again, an easy remedy at the fabric store. However, if you are not the crafty type, and don't think white will work for you, I recommend you find your duvet cover first. I have yet to find one. That's the only reason I deducted one star - and I'm not really sure that's fair since again - this is meant to be a comforter on its own, and over size isn't necessarily a bad thing...Nonetheless, the fact that it only comes in white is cause to deduct a star. Otherwise, I have no complaints.
