I bought this comforter for the first time 7 years ago but had to replace it last April so I bought the same one again. The comforter #1 smelled horrible for the first year or so but comforter #2 didn't have that issue. Comforter #1 shed for a month or so and there were always fine/small feathers that would come out of it. Comforter #2 has not stopped shedding its feathers everywhere and it has been 15 months. I have even taken it to the laundromat a couple of times and washed it in one of those huge washing machines and it still doesn't help! Comforter #1 had some shifting issues but Comforter #2 has major shifting issues and does not have any feathers left in the middle as they have all shifted to the edges! I rotate it every time I wash the duvet cover, which is every other week, yet it still has the major shifting issue. On the positive side it is super fluffy once you first get it and well now the edges are super fluffy. I really liked this comforter the first time around and it lasted about six years but the second one is horrendous and I will be buying a new one after only 15 months. Not happy when I thought I was buying one with the baffled box design that didn't allow the feathers to shift.
