This is an incredibly comfortable comforter, and I love that it's down alternative because real down inevitibly results in quills poking through the fabric. Speaking of which, the fabric of this comforter is soft, and it has subtle white sateen pinstripes, giving it a higher-quality, hotel-style look. In other words, you could use this comforter without a duvet cover and still have a nice looking bed. This does get pretty warm, so it you're a hot sleeper, you may want to get something a little lighter. I like that this comforter is nice and fluffy, not too thin, and its subtle baffle box design adds to its good-looking appearance. My only complaint is that despite the baffle box design, the interior does tend to redistribute itself after repeated use, but not to the extent that there are "empty" spots. A good fluffing and the comforter is as good as new! I would definitely recommend this product and am very pleased with my purchase.
