This might be just an average-quality bed set, but then, there are a lot of pieces for a very little price. My pre-teen daughter is OMG so thrilled. She loves the style and the silky feel of the sheets. She loves the lightweight loftiness of the comforter, too, and the rustly sound it makes when she moves it. Basically, she has opposite standards for bedding than I do, but then, it's not for me. I love that the set comes with matching valances, she loves that it comes with fluffy, matching socks - go figure. Still, This ain't my first rodeo, so I know she'll probably hate it in less than a year. And when she does, Overstock, I'll be back -- for the next awesome deal (and pre-teen squeal).
