[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] just recieved this last week! The shipping was INCREDIBLY FAST! Like super sonic fast, not even kidding! That was wonderful and I was already in love with that alone hehe! I got the blue striped design with a blue washed look and dark blue stripes on it! The material is more of a silky feel instead of cotton-y feel but for me that was perfectly fine! I was sort of bummed that they didn't have matching sheets to go with it but I guess most comforters sets don't usually come all in one package. I originally wanted the duvet set but decided on this instead because the duvet set didn't come with the duvet insert inside the duvet cover. I'm glad I got this set though because summer's practically here and the duvet would've just been too warm for the hot summer months (with that and a sheet and fuzzy blanket inbetween the two on my bed) I get hot flashes at night as well and sleep with the ac unit on all year round no matter the season because of my flashes so this comforter was actually perfect for me! I love the material and of course the pattern, not too dark and not too bright, especially because my husband works on heavy equipment and usually is drenched in black grease everyday and when he gets home he sits on the bottom edge of the bed watching TV for a while and it makes my comforters look super dirty and its hard to get that stuff out of the covers no matter what cleaning technique you use so that's a big plus for us not to mention it could be reversible as well and its neutral (appealing to guys and girls) at least in my opinion. Ive already had to play "rock paper scissors" with my daughter and again with my 2 sons for dibs on the comforter and my mom tried to buy it from me too! Haha! In the end I wound up ordering the same design again but in the quilt material for my mom and the cloud looking designed comforter for my daughters room! I lkve how affordable they are and I alsl really love that the shams that come with it aren't thick and padded like a lot of shams are nowadays and they were just regular thin material because my husband absolutely dislikes the thick padded kind! Packaging was very secure, i live reusing the zipper bag these comforters come in for the previous comforter that I was using before this one to go in and be put up for storage! I alsl use them for storing sheet sets and pillow case sets to make it easier to find as well! Upon washing the comforter (my washer has an agitator in it) the comforter did magnificently well, didn't bunch up or lose its fluff, it actually made it a little fluffier which was great for us. The color was just as vibrant as it was before washing for the first time and I love how the comforter has little sewn 2 to 3 inch lines every foot or so sewn into it to keep the padding in place i imagine so it doesn't bunch up and that's a HUGE PLUS because that's exactly what defeated our last blanket we got, washed it and the padding went bonkers and it was irreparable! I definitely recommend to anyone looking for something different and greatly made quality wise and absolutely functional for all 4 seasons as well as feels AMAZING against your body with the silk like feel to it as well as the extra care and attention this brand has done and went the extra mile to sew the pdding in place while still letting the comforter breathe and stay fluffed! Perfect for my family and I, we couldn't be more pleased and satisfied and definitely life long fans of this brand and material! Super affordable at the same time quality is just as good as if not better than more expensive brands! You have to try this if you haven't already done so, you won't be regretting it i can bet on that!!
