Okay, I respectfully disagree with all of the negative reviews on this comforter. I am very finicky when it comes to bedding. I need it soft, durable and comfortable. This fits the bill in all areas! Butter soft and feels like you are wrapped in a marsh mellow cloud. It is satin people so yes, it will "catch" on your rough feet, as all satin does. I got it in sage which is a pretty light green and will be purchasing in charcoal. The coverage on a King is good with overhang on three sides and can cover pillows. It is very warm in our Michigan winters, but could see it being all season as well. There is double stitching for durability and it is machine washable. In my opinion, one of the best comforter buys I have ever made.
I purchased one of these Striped Down Alternative Comforters and I love it! It is not heavy in weight which I love, but it keeps me warm! I am now buying two more in other colors!
I was super excited to get this comforter. It's cool to the touch and not too heavy. Until I slept with it, the fabric it's made out of catches (or sticks) to my feet and hands. One night I ran my hand against the comforter really fast and I actually saw sparks of static electricity. It's super annoying. Unless you sleep with a sheet you will feel the comforter stick to your feet or anywhere else you might have rough skin.
This comforter is extremely soft and very nice. I actually bought 2 of them and we alternate the comforters while the other is being waged. Love it!
Excellent color and quality
I got the blue color and it is very pretty, sort of a silvery-blue. I can confirm that it is closer in color to the first photo than the individual picture where it appears more aqua. The comforter is not super thick, but it still feels puffy and luxurious when I use it. It has been warm enough for me, and I’ve been sleeping without heat on at around 45 degrees outside (I do live in Florida, though, so not sure how it would do at truly cold temps). It is constructed well. Each square is sewn individually so that the filling stays properly distributed over the whole blanket. I have not had any problems with dry feet scratching on the fabric as other people have said. Really, I feel that this is a great purchase for the price and is very high quality.
Dear "Overstock" Quality Assurance Department: PLEASE CHECK AND COMPARE PHOTOS OF INVENTORY WITH ITEMS YOU'RE SHIPPING OUT: "Superior All-Season Luxurious Striped Down Alternative Comforter" Purchased as a gift, (King-size, in black stripe), to be shipped to recipient's address. Receipt of item was not expeditious...took longer to receive than any "Overstock.com" item I have ordered in the past, be it a gift to a diff address, or otherwise. Once received, imagine my "shagrin" to find it was NOT THE ITEM PICTURED IN ONLINE PHOTO (and that my gift-choice was made and further supported by the number of positive reviews listed with item. So that tells me the comforter had to match the photo at SOME point...or, the reviews are mis-categorized for the solid-color comforter). End-result being: Instead of my friend receiving the luxurious-looking comforter (alternating matte and satin striping in black), what arrived was a comforter in a black one-tone, solid-color, chintz-like fabric. So, okay, perfectly useable and utilitarian, not shabby in quality-- but so NOT the look I was aiming for, nor the gift I selected to send. "Overstock.com" Customer Support was contacted; spoke with an absolutely wonderful professional young man (who handled the reorder of the correct item, emailed me a Return slip to print to attach to the wrong item, and even talked me into joining the "Club-O" reward program). Five-days later, second item received: Again was WRONG item... a second, same plain black, chintz-like fabric, that I now have to return. Strike Two! Do I REALLY want to go for a third try at this..? C'mon "Overstock"! You're Better than this! Grr. Photos enclosed (2)
This alternative down comforter seems to be made well, however, it is extremely thin. Appears to have very little fill. Not worth the money in my opinion.
I love this comforter! I bought it because of the color. I have never been fond of alternative down comforters before, but this one made up for those bad feelings! It is gorgeous, warm and very well made.
I loved this comforter. The color was lovely (blue)
I saw another review in which the person stated when they received the "taupe" bedding it looked more like silver. I ordered taupe because my other bedding items are a dark chocolate and I wanted something a little lighter. When I received my bedding It really did look like a silver color. I put it on my bed and it almost looks like a silvery/lavender color and definitely NOT taupe. I didn't want to order the chocolate one for fear it might be too dark brown, but now I'm wondering if the chocolate one looks more taupe?? So, needless to say, I was very disappointed in the color, but we like how light and airy it is. The material is nice, but if you have dry skin it will catch on the outside material, but does fine with the underside of the comforter. All in all we like this comforter. I think I will give it to my friend and order the chocolate and hope it's not too dark.....
I won't spend a lot on comforters because of my dogs, but still want it to look nice without breaking the bank. This one fit the bill. It's a bit larger than most and the plum color is very luscious. I wish the stripes ran up and down instead of across the bed. Other than that I am happy. Well constructed and nice filling.
Originally bought this comforter for the guest room. Loved it so much I bought a second for our own bed. I sleep really warm and this cover provides warmth but does not feel hot or heavy. Good for all seasons. I love it! I would definitely buy again.
I got the plum color and it's a beautiful deep plum so it's true to color. And it's also very soft and silky. I love it!
The king is about a foot short from being wide enough. Order king for queen to cover well. Looks good but is skimpy sized for my king bed.
I got this in black for my son's dorm bed. The XL twin was a perfect size and he really liked it. Another great product for the price from Overstock!
Perfect color, fine quality, nice and cozy.
I was looking for a light blanket to go under my comforter because the comforter was removed from the bed at night. This was a great choice. Warm enough for winter, but soft and cool enough for spring and fall. Loved it so much I bought 2.
This is very great looking comforter but I found it heavier weight on me than I like when sleeping. This is more winter than all season unless u are always cold then this is for you. Did not wash up as well as other comforters as the material pilled up after about 4 washes.
Not a heavy comforter but keeps warmth in. Love the subtle stripes which aids in making the bed. A very good buy.
