I was very hesitant to order this duvet because of all the negative reviews but chose to do so because it was the only duvet I could find large enough for the comforter I had purchased. I am so glad I ignored the bad reviews because this duvet cover is very nice. The duvet I received had buttons closures whereas most of the reviews stated it used ties. I am not sure why the one I received had buttons but I am glad it did. The buttons are located at the bottom of the duvet. At the top on the inside, there are ties. This helps keep the large comforter in place. I waited to write this review until I had washed the duvet to see how it held up. It did great! This is overall a great quality duvet and is beautiful.
