A mattress pad is necessary to put over this wonderful down bed. I am a paraplegic with lots of health issues so I'm in bed a lot and this featherbed is wonderful. It does birth a lot of feathers, enough to outfit a gaggle of geese. And they tend to come out pokey end first, which hurts. So get a cheap mattress pad to put over the top of it, put your sheets on your bed (extra deep pocket sheets) and you'll sleep like a baby.
Bought them for my 98 year old grandmother and she loves them. That is where the excellent rating comes from because that was who they were meant to be for. I tried them and they were to hard for me but I sleep with my head buried in a down pillow with my arms pinned under my stomach which my husband says is a "little weird" so I'm staying out of the rating.
Perfectly happy with the quality and performance of the Microfiber Down Alternative Comforter that I ordered. Nicely sewn and apparently the "alternative" materials used instead of Goose/Duck feathers is perfectly capable of keeping me warm at night. Only suggestion I might add is that the overall size is just a little short when it comes to covering a Queen Sized bed with a Pillow top mattress. And extra 12" in width and length would be appreciated.
