I decided to finally purchase a king size bed which required me to upgrade my comforter set and curtains. After reading a few reviews and checking out competitor's prices, I decided to order this. Overall, this comforter set was just perfect. First, I did not want lots of pillows becuase that is just more to throw on the floor each night when I am going to sleep. This set came with two king-sized pillow shams that matched the set and also two euro pillow shams (which I am not using). Second, the two decorative pillows are just the right amount of accent to add to the bed. Third, and probably the most imporant, the actual comforter details. The comforter us very pretty, just as it is in the picture. The flowers are sewn onto the comforter - the design is just thread - put almost has a shimmery effect. My matteress is 14 feet thick - and the comforter covers it ok (it could be a bit longer, but don't displeased). The side of the comforter that is closet to you is very soft. The outer side of the comforter is definately for looks - not as soft as the inside (but no need to be since it has the decorations). Fourth, the bed skirt was needed for me, even though I purchased a platform bed - I still have extra space that I need to hide with the bed skirt. Besides the comforter being a bit on the shorter length for me, I would highly recommend this comforter set to anyone. All you need to do is pair it up with a pair of ivory bamboo sheets and you will sleep happy for a very long time.
