Rated 3 out of 5 by Anma Happy to return
Regrettably, I returned this down mattress topper. I am so thankful for LL Bean's satisfaction guarantee and the generous return policy. We slept on the mattress topper for four nights. Never once did we experience the "down feather" comfort we were expecting. Instead, each night we were pricked and scratched from the countless needle-sharp feather quills that worked their way through the mattress pad cover and through the fitted sheet. Last night I was scratched on the leg from a feather that was so sharp it resulted in a little blood on my calf. I'm not sure how to rate this item so I chose the middle option. The dimensions and fit were a perfect king size mattress. The loft was uniform throughout. The fabrics, top and bottom, were quality. The stitching was fine workmanship. The "downside" was the down! The feathers needed to be trimmed shorter so they didn't have that very sharp tip that poked right through two layers of fabric. Maybe the mattress topper we got was an anomaly ... filled with a bad supply of feathers. I don't know. I'm just grateful I was able to return it because we just didn't want to spend another night on it. And if you're wondering, yes we did have the correct side up on the bed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PJ07 Loved it, but .....
This topper is awesome! It was so comfortable, and I slept like a baby on it ....that was until my allergies kicked in! If you don't have any allergy issues, you will LOVE this product! Unfortunately, the "scent" of the down only got worse over the few weeks I had it to the point where I just couldn't keep it. So back it went, and thanks to LL Bean for their very generous return policy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mill13 Great sleep!
This is the most comfortable sleep I've had in a long time! The only problem is waking up in the morning and being sooooo comfortable and rested that I just want to lay there and enjoy the softness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shenand Warm and comfy
Featherbed has made our bed the most comfortable ever. It is warm, feathers do not poke out (have a cover over it) and it does not need fluffing all of the time. Prior to purchase I investigated many different products and most stated they needed to be fluffed often to keep feathers evenly spread out. Not with this product. It's been on the bed for a few weeks now and no fluffing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by wildernesswoman comfortable, works well
I am using this on top of a futon and it works very well to give me an extra little softness that I need. I am using the feather bed cover which works well to keep the feathers from poking through.
Also, I had previously purchased LL Bean sateen full fitted sheets (fern design) and, with a futon, it fits easily over both futon and featherbed (does not squash featherbed). This combination has worked very well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cab0118 Like sleeping on a cloud
We ordered this for our queen bed a few years ago, and now that we are upgrading to a king size we are ordering another one. This is a great product if used correctly. You need to buy a feather-bed cover to put it in. It does not work to try and put a fitted sheet over the top of it and mush it into the mattress like one reviewer apparently tried to do - that defeats the whole purpose. Put your fitted sheet over your mattress, then put this feather bed in its case over the top and sleep directly on it. Make sure it's turned with the down side up. It's a bit heavy to "fluff" it, but definitely worth the trouble if you want to sleep on a cloud. One other con - occasionally you will get one of the feathers from the bottom layer (feathers on the bottom layer, down on the top) to work through to the top. Just pull it out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MaxandTyGrandmom Soft and frustrating
This feather bed is comfortable, however, the feathers do stick through the material, my sheet and into me. The most frustrating part is that it shifts under a sheet, pulls enough to undo the fitted sheet, then I find half of this feather bed over the side of my bed.
Needs to be remade on a nightly basis. I have kept it because it's now used. If I ever get another one, I would buy the one that has material that goes under the mattress to hold it in place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bella00 Comfortable but difficult to "use"
Very comfortable for a short time. Even though this has baffles to keep the down from shifting, it is difficult for one person to "re-fluff". You can't put a fitted sheet over it or the feathers compress. You need to use a loose sheet over it as well so that the heat from the duvet and body can be released. Because you need the loose sheet to be able to re-fluff, it makes making the bed time consuming. I so wanted to keep this. Cumbersome to stuff this back in the box. Thank you LL Bean for making returns as easy as possible and for being understanding. I wish this were more like a european duvet.
