We bought this comforter to finish off a 'room redo' for an 8 yr old girl. When it first arrived, I was quite pleased. The colors were pretty true to the photo and it fit the bed nicely. After the first washing it faded horribly. After the second time it was washed it looked totally worn out. I have bought comforters at our local discount store that held up much better, washed better and was a fraction of the price. I was really disappointed.
