After reading some of the reviews I debated buying, glad I did. Using on full size bed, would be too short on sides for a queen. Material is softer than I thought it would be after reading reviews. Layered this over another comforter for the ruffle effect. Perfect for 8 year old granddaughter, she Loves the bedding. Great value for price, almost bought similar one at XXXXXXX XXXX, glad I was able to save lots of money at overstock.com.
