- The color is more off-white than bright white. But it is still whiter than cream or ivory. - It does come out the box very wrinkled but I think it settled nicely once it had a few days to air out/fluff up. - I bought a king for my queen sized bed and am happy with that. It is noticebly bigger than my other queen comforters but still fits on the bed and doesn't look too large. - When I removed the tag from the decorative pillow, the seam came undone on the edge and I will have to fix it. The pillow itself is not anything particularly special and the filler is visible through the white, but I still put it on my guest bed, I think it's fine with other pillows. - It's comfortable and a good weight and pretty much exactly what I was looking for. - The reviews helped me, so I could manage my expectations. If I hadn't read the reviews, maybe I would have been dissappointed with the color, or alarmed at the wrinkles at first. All the reviews were pretty much spot on and I'm very happy with this purchase.
