I ordered this and the third day it was here. That's fast! I bought this in blue for the guest room. Read many reviews and decided to take a chance and I love it. I am very picky about my beds. I had been looking for many months for just the right thing and I found it. Some said it was thin and not good quality. Not so. I think it is beautiful. I did wash and iron it before putting it on as I iron everything that needs it although it looked ok from the dryer. I sprayed it with a light amount of starch and it looks stunning. This will help the limp shams. I have a oversized queen bed, sits high off the floor and has a pillow top. Nice side rails so I do not use a bed skirt but like my covers a bit longer so I bought the king and it fits exactly the way I wanted it to. Not sure that the king would be big enough for our king bed as it has a pillow top also. For the money you cannot go wrong so if you are thinking about buying do it. I think it looks high end and I usually buy high end things. This is my first duvet and I admit it took me 45 minutes to get the comforter in it right, again I am picky about the bed. I am so glad I bought this. Med. blue walls, hardwood floor with a darker blue rug under the bed and the soft blue stripe duvet. Happy Happy Happy.
