Buying Comforters. Tips To Buying Some Of The Most Comfortable Bedding In The World

Jul 14, 2008
It wasn't that long ago that people thought of sheets and blankets when thinking about buying bedding. However gradually we have come to embrace the comforter, and many of us have discovered the delights of this wonderful piece of bedding.

A comforter is a wonderful way to make your sleeping experience as comfortable as possible. They are warm, soft and snuggly and a comforter also reduces the bed making requirements in the morning. If you haven't used a comforter before you ought to try it once at least for a night just to see what they are all about.

Before you buy a comforter though there's a few things you should do. Firstly you must measure the bed. Surprisingly not all "Queen Size" or "King Size" beds are the same size, there is no universal size standard for beds, so make sure you know what sized bed you are covering. There is nothing worse than having a comforter that is to small and when you move the sides lift up and cold air gets in. Personally I'd buy a comforter that is too big just to make sure that the sides of the comforter hang over the sides of the mattress sufficiently.

Nest you need to know how warm you want your comforter to be. Don't buy a down comforter with maximum fill if you live in Hawaii. There are different types of fill and they differ in the amount of warmth they provide, so learn a little about fills.

Down is the most popular for the people who need the warmest comforter. Down is the under layer on birds and there are different qualities of down. Siberian down is generally considered to be the best with Hungarian down and goose down also good, and less expensive. Then comes a mixture of goose down and goose feathers adn finally duck down and duck feathers. Each is different quality and different price.

There are many other types of fillings for comforters, some natural and some artificial. I have seen wonderful comforters filled with wool, and also Alpaca wool, and many claim that Alpaca wool makes the best fill. Then there are a range of different synthetic fillers too like Primaloft. This is worthwhile for some people who are alergic to feathers.

I would also suggest that you buy a quilted comforter. This has quilting, or stitching, in segments right throughout the comforter. This keeps the fill where it should be rather than all moving to one spot in the comforter so that the user needs to rearrange it by shaking.

Before you buy read the care instructions, you need to know how you care for your comforter. It isn't necessary to wash it as often as you would wash, say, your sheets, but you still need to care for it and wash it from time to time.

Consider a comforter for your bed. They are a wonderful way to sleep, I would never be without one. A good comforter isn't cheap, but there are places online where you can buy cheap bedding as well as cheap comforters, but that's for another article.
