Rated 3 out of 5 Clings to my legs...
I liked the color of this bedspread which is very generous and covers our cal-king bed and pillows fully. I am returning this because although it reads that it is 100% cotton, it feels like there is some polyester in it and makes me too warm. In fact, the cloth itself clings so much to my body that I ended up throwing off the covers off and on all night. I had bought this to replace a favorite quilt from LL Bean, but after using the Matelasse Bedspread for about a month, I put the old quilt back on and now I can sleep without feeling too warm.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ccc9331 love it but beware of sizing
I bought the queen size because I have a queen bed. I should have measured first. My mattress is 60X80" and about 9" deep and with a standard box spring and bed frame. It was way too big. It went right to the floor. I have never had that problem before. Usually covers are too small. I am returning and ordering the queen coverlet instead. I ordered the light teal and it is a very calming colour. I love it. Great weight to it too. I like heavy cosy blankets. I do recommend this but please measure your mattress first.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HonoreMelmoth Simply the best
Few things in life are perfect. But this bedspread is the best I've ever owned. The fabric, its thickness, the pattern and the size are just right. As for color, the one descfribed as "new khaki" is closer to a sand shade, just a few steps above white. And the price is right, too, for this quality.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SummerSails Bedspread exactly as described
I ordered two twin sized matelasse bedspreads in white. They look lovely, giving the beds nice clean lines; they are also the perfect weight. Heavy enough to make the bed have a presence, but light enough to be pulled up as a blanket on cool nights. I also loved the length, as they hang about 4-6 inches off the floor on both sides (two different mattresses, one is newer and thicker.). Now all my beds have a simple summer look.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Isom Wonderful spread but too wide for my bed
I have one of these spreads at our home and am very pleased with it. It washes well and the length is generous and covers the pillows well. I ordered another spread in a full size and found that the width was greater than advertised. I thought of having it altered but decided to send it back. The spread is a good weight. It is perfect for us even in winter in the South with Bean's polar tec blanket, a sheet, and the spread.

Rated 5 out of 5áby nightgale Top Quality
In January I became obsessed with the idea of a new bedspread for the new year. I compared and contrasted department store and catalog brands. Therefore I am confident in saying L.L. Bean Matelasse is top notch.
The cotton fabric is not weighty, yet it has a nice substance to it and drapes well. Not flimsy, not too heavy, just right.
The Bay Blue color is serenely beautiful. The shams and things are well made.
Not skimpy. On a full-size bed of moderate height the bedspread covers top to bottom and touches the floor on the sides.
The geometric weave pattern seems a bit unimaginative to me, I would rather have swirls or flowers in a bedspread. However this does have a calm, understated look that is different and appealing in itself.

Rated 5 out of 5áby gmascabin Lite and warm
I bought this in King size, color white. It was my choice over an expensive traditional hobnail. This choice is lighter, easier to carry and handle and it topped a quality cotton all weather blanket from Peacock Alley (also made in Portugal) under LLBean flannel sheets. My home gets cold at night but I slept comfortably with this bedspread on top. It is generous in length for a traditionally made bed so I'm really pleased! II have a tall bed so the generous width covered the bed rails and draped nicely with only 4" of clearance from the floor which is what I prefer. I do not know how this will wash but I expect it will do just fine as have all my LLBean bedding purchases. I always take advantage of sales so I bought this during their most recent sale. It was shipped within the time promised.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Beckmeister88 Color is poorly represented
I ordered this bedspread in the color purple. The color in the photos online is fairly bright and rich in appearance. The bedspread that I received is extremely washed out and at best could be described as a light shade of bleached lavender. Almost a pink tone.
I had previously ordered this bedspread in the color brown. It was also a bit faded in comparison to the photo but not so much that it couldn't still be described as brown.
The poor color representation and faded appearance (plus there are pulled threads) makes this a disappointment.
