I was so excited to receive this comforter, and I have to say, I am pleased. There's a little more white in the comforter than there seems to be in the picture, but I love it nonetheless. The colors are so vibrant, I love the pattern, and it's great that it comes with the bedskirt and 3 extra pillows in addition to the 2 shams. Simply for convenience, I just wish it came with some sheets too; it would've been perfect. For the price though, I can't complain because 7 pieces for the price is a fantastic deal. The fill feels pretty soft to be polyester, and as for the thickness, it could be thicker, but it's not too bad at all and this is coming from someone who lives in a harsh winter climate. All in all, it's a great comforter for a teenager/young adult (or someone young at heart!) who loves vibrant colors and is more concerned with style and pattern than upscale quality. I bought this for its design and I am beyond satisfied with both that and its quality for the price point. All things considered, there's no doubt that I would recommend this to a friend (or a stranger for that matter) looking for a super cute comforter at a reasonable price.
