I had found a comforter just like this one at another store for more than double this price and it was only a duvet. I then stumbled across this look alike and knew I had to order it..the reviews seemed too good to be true. Well they are not, this comforter is elegant, soft, comfy, and even my manly fiance loves it! When I first took it out of the packaging I wasn't sure but after sleeping with it for a few weeks now I know it was the prefect chice for an amazing price. Plus you get two shams and a cute lil pillow to go with it..its great and I would recommend to anyone. Have not washed it yet but have a good feeling about it seeing as its cotton.
