Ok, I can't even begin to tell you how much time I spent reading reviews and researching a comforter that was going to meet my needs but most importantly, my requirements. I looked at both down filled and alternative down. I wanted the heavy, puffy, never want to get out of bed comforter. I went back and forth between a couple. All of them were Hotel Grand btw. The true down comforters were just not affordable and the reviews were less than stellar. I finally decided on this one, as it met all of my other requirements, due to two things. The thread count and the positive reviews. So, I ordered it. Shipping was excellent, it was my first item to arrive. It came in a tight square (CA King) but was heavy. I am extremely pleased with this comforter. It is warm and with time, a dryer, and some patience, it is the poofiest that one can be. My wife adores this. For the price, it cannot be beat. The 1000 thread count allows this to be very soft. It can be used by itself as it is that beautiful but we use a duvet cover due to the color and our dogs. Between chosing the 600 thread count or the 1000, although a small difference in price, I made the correct decision. Again, I spent days researching this purchase. Too many people with disappointed with the quality, lack of "poofiness", etc with their comforters. Not this one. It meets all of my needs and more.
First, I have to tell you that I am more picky than most people, especially when it comes to stuff that will touch my skin! My husband says I would have made a great Queen! I carefully read reviews looking for just the right comforter for our Master Bedroom. My husband and I had enjoyed the fluffy, soft covers during our stay at the Hampton Inn, and we wanted something very close to their white, soft comforter. I decided on the down alternative comforter, because I was afraid I might have allergies to real down.
I then started to narrow down the comforters that Overstock has to offer. I did not want to pay $400 for a comforter, like one would have to do for Hampton's bedding. We are pretty rough on our comforters, and I needed something more "disposable."
When this comforter came in the mail, I promptly took it straight to my extra-large capacity washer to give it a freshening wash, as I do not like the smell of a new piece of bedding, generally. I wanted to wash it in my detergent and fabric softener so that it would be fresh for the first night of use.
As one person previously reported, I got a small tear in the seam where the comforter rubbed against the agitator, apparently. I decided that this comforter, especially in a king size, is just too big to go in a home washer, and I think it really would be better to take it to a laundry mat or dry cleaner for cleaning. Otherwise, you are going to rub all kinds of tears in it.
I put it through 3 cycles in the dryer. It fluffed fine, but it takes a long time to dry all that filling inside. Now that my comforter was clean and fresh, I was ready to test it for comfort.
My initial feeling was that the material did not really seem as soft (at supposedly 700 thread count) as my 400 thread count sheets did. For particularly sensitive princesses like me, I thought it had just a tad bit of roughness to it, but nothing horrible. After sleeping with it for two nights now, I can say that it is wonderful. It does not make me itch or bother my very sensitive skin in any way. It is incredibly soft!
The weight of this comforter is about moderate. It is not too light or too heavy. We sleep under heavy air conditioning, and it definitely is wonderful to snuggle under it in the cool hours of the morning. It keeps you very warm without being really heavy on your body. I think it will be great in the winter here in Tennessee.
Like other reviewers, I will say that it runs extremely small. I put it on a Queen bed with thick mattresses, and it will not even cover from top to bottom of the mattress. It comes down on the sides just about to where the dust ruffle should start. I think you are going to have to find a thin spread or something to put over it if you want to have a good looking bed ensemble. It definitely does not cover my bed like I would like. I use it more like one would use a blanket. I have a more formal spread to put on when company comes.
So what is my bottom line? Even with all its shortcomings (mostly the size of it), I love it, and so does my husband. It is every bit as comfortable as the Hampton Inn's luxurious bedding. At this price, you can use it and replace it when it gets worn out. I am thinking about getting one for all my kids for their beds for the winter. They are so nice to wrap up in, and if you are worried about soiling the white comforter, I would recommend getting a comfortable duvet cover that can be taken off and washed periodically. For me, I think I will just take mine to the laundry mat when it needs washing and put it in their huge commercial washer. You don't have to do it that often, and it is a minor inconvenience to have this much plush, soft cover night after night. I urge you to go for it! I doubt you would be disappointed.
I searched for at least a month to find a down alternative comforter that would be fluffy with thread count of at least 500. I was excited when I found this. I wanted an alternative to down because I didn't want to deal with the feather pricking my skin and the feathers possibly coming out. This product is just that. The filling is pretty consistent throughout. It didn't take many hours once I took the comforter out of the package for it to fluff up. It is very warm. I like to turn my air on and snuggle under the comforter. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking. I purchased because it was from the Hotel Grand Collection. I am thoroughly impressed and satisfied.
I was so tired of my husband shifting all the covers to his side of the bed while I would cling to a skimpy side piece of the comforter. This oversized down comforter is long enough to tuck in at the bottom to keep it from being shifted and wide enough to hang over a full 12 inches so there is no need for him to pull it over to his side in the middle of the night. Yay! Finally warm and comfy.
I bought the king size comforter and love it. The construction is great quality with good stitching all around. The piping is done just right and give it a perfect look if you were to use it w/o a duvet. The fabric is soft and smooth like 700 tc should be, and the baffle design keeps the down evenly distributed. The size is just right; it hangs over the sides about 8 inches and the foot about 6 inches. I bought a duvet to keep the comforter crisp white and protected as I have an indoor/outdoor cat who sleeps inside and brings in a yard full of dirt at the end of the day and it fit perfectly. I actually bought the duvet 2 inches narrower than the comforter and it fills it out perfectly with no excess fabric on any edge. Perfect! The weight is perfect as well. You don't feel as though it's so heavy you can't move, but you don't feel like you're laying under some inferior light-weight summer throw either. A great purchase.
We received this as a gift for our wedding over 9 years ago & we still use it. We wash it regularly have replaced the sheets, but the comforter has held up very well. We're finally looking to replace this because we want a larger bed, but the comforter is still in very good condition. As for the other reviews, not sure why they're so low. The set does get softer as you wash it if that's the main complaint. Can't recommend this enough! We're hoping to stick with Nautica for our new bedding set.
Bought this hoping to use year round, WRONG! This would be perfect for up north but here in the south it's over kill. High quality, fluffs out nicely, rarely a few tiny feathers floating but nothing to make this a deal break, actually would not hesitate to recommend this to friends/family. Have it stored for now but cannot wait until next winter to put it back on the bed.
I have to admit, I was skeptical when I ordered this comforter. I went to ***** and looked at several heavyweight down comforters but they were all priced at $350 and above, so naturally I wondered why this heavy weight comforter would be such a steal (even though I love, LOVE Overstock.com). I read a couple of the bad reviews and thought that those instances were probably pure accidental bad quality items and it wasn't worth stressing over, so I ordered one and crossed my fingers. When it came in the mail, I immediately put it on my bed and saw that it was very light feeling, thus perhaps it's not as warm as it claims to be? So that night I put on my long sleeved sleeping shirt and got ready to get up in the middle of the night for more blankets. I should tell you I'm a 2 comforter type of girl. I get cold really easily always have 2 comforters except when it's 90 outside. I live in Seattle, where in the winters it gets to be about 30's most of the time, so not freezing, but it's no Florida.
Much to my surprise, I was actually hot the next morning! This comforter is so warm and cozy. It's like it heats up around you~! It's lightweight quality allows you to sleep comfortably so you don't feel like you're being buried in cotton. Pair this with a comfy duvet cover and you're all set for the Winter! I love, love, love it and think that this is a MUST HAVE for every bedroom!
I bought my first one to furnish our new home a few weeks ago based on the comment. It turns out an amazing purchase with superior hotel quality and even lighter in weight than hotel down comforters because this one is all down, no feathers at all. It is very quiet at night unlike the feather comforters, and airy while keeping you warm in bed. It's also quite fluffy so it really compliments any nicely colored duvet covers and make you feel like sleeping in a beautiful cloud! I ended up buying 2 more (so I bought a total of 3 of these) for our other guest bedrooms. Eddie Bauer does not dissapoint! I had down coat from Eddie Bauer and this is just like the down coat, filled with very clean down material, with no smell at all. I wish I could give more stars to this product!
From the photo I expected a large blue background with white design. However, the comforter is white with a blue design. It arrives very wrinkled, and the wrinkles do not disappear. Overall it has a nice look, but I believe it is overpriced for the quality.
I am extremely happy with my purchase of a Laura Ashley Comforter Set from Overstock.com! The set was received quickly and in excellent condition. The set looks simply beautiful in our bedroom, and the price was great!
Super beautiful! The quality is great and the colors are just like the picture. I put this in my guest room and the class it gives for my guest. The throw pillows are on the way and will add the finished touch.
The reviews I read on several dozen other products did not compare to the positive reviews on this one and I was not let down.
I love the feel of real down comforters, but I have dogs who sleep in the bed so the convenience of machine washing was necessary (in case of accidents). This product arrived a little squished, but with fluffing it was great and it feels the closest to real down as any alternative I have encountered before. I honestly wouldn't be able to tell the difference if I weren't told! It has held up, too, after a couple of washes, which I was pleased with! A warning, though, is the king size (what I purchased) barely fits in my regular sized washer.
I agree with previous reviewers that getting the size larger than needed is a good idea. I have a queen bed, bought a king and it hangs over the edge quite a bit, but I believe the queen would have been too small.
The set arrived quickly and well packaged. The fabric is very nice and the comforter seems oversized, which is also great. I would say that there really is not ANY gray in this - it is mostly brown and taupe, but it blends with gray so I kept it. It does have a little bit of aqua or teal in it. We are using this with white sheets. I also ordered the set of Euro shams and they are nice as well.
The quality of this product exceeded my and my husband's expectations. We blended the comforter and shams with an existing color scheme and love the result. It is akin to silk and elegant. We have a rather formal home and appreciated the way it presented with our decor. See the attached photo.
Ordered the brown to match and update a Moroccan themed room. She wanted a "puffy" comforter, similar to a white down one, but in a color. I was concerned once it arrived, as it was sent compressed. A note said that it would take 48 hours to get puffy again, but I was skeptical. After a full 2 days it was exactly what we wanted. I would recommend!
Was glad to find this bedding set. Its hard to find a true deep navy. Sometimes when they say dark blue its not but this set was and is perfect for my color scheme, I wish the curtains was the same design as the reverse side of the comforter. Other than that, this item is wonderful
I'm so in love with my bedding. This is the best comforter I have ever had. I was thrilled to find this set on Overstock for such a great price. The quality is outstanding. I was thinking it was more of a blue/brown in the pictures - but it's more of a teal/brown which I love even better! The comforter is very thick and I LOVE getting into bed at night! I get many compliments on our bedroom and this gorgeous Croscill bedding! I love to brag about the incredible quality at the OS price! LOVE LOVE LOVE this bedding!
I saw this comforter set in a department store and fell in love with it until I saw the price. Sadly, I could not afford it. I had heard of Overstock and decided to look it up. To my surprise it was on Overstock for half the price. I then wondered if it was cheaper because it was a second. I decided to order it any way, because if I was dissatisfied, I could return it.
It arrived within a matter of days. The comforter was exactly like the one I saw in the major department store. The colors and material were the same. It was perfect.
The following week I decided to buy another comforter for my guest bedroom on Overstock and was also satisfied just as well. Before buying anything, I will always check to see if Overstock has the item.
With this oversized comforter you do not have to worry about the sheet hanging lower. Covers nicely. I fold it back and put the pillows on top. Use year round, nice weight and feel. You won't be disappointed with this comforter.
It was a little more than we wanted to spend but my husband and I are very happy with our purchase. Getting the right duvet is worth a little extra. This one is super light but substantial at the same time--no weight on the legs or feet. It seems to keep us at the perfect temperature although we have very different requirements. Also, there's something difficult to describe about it that I've never felt as much with another duvet (I think we've had three of them over the years): You just feel really, really cozy when you are under it, you get that snuggly feeling. I've heard of other duvets having an odor--there was absolutely none with this, although we let it air out in another room for a night just in case. NO odor. My husband and I highly recommend this duvet. Sweet dreams!
This comforter set is well made and of high quality. It looks upscale. I was looking for gray with a touch of bright green, which is not easy to find, so I was very pleased that it was also high quality.
WE love this comforter. Like the oversized feature, comforter is warm and cozy but not HOT, I truly recommend this wonderful product especially if you life in cold winter climate. We turn our heat down at night but still want to be warm and comfortable.
Love the size and color of the California King down comforter. I ordered it in the Marsala color so it wouldn't show dirt from our cat. I am very happy with my purchase as I searched high and low for a comforter that wasn't too skimpy. This one I am able to tuck in to the bottom of the bed and there is still plenty of comforter to pull up to my face. The marsala color is a bit more rust colored than a true marsala but it is beautiful and I kept it.
