Types of Comforters

The term comforter is usually associated with comfort, relaxation and coziness. Yes! This is what a comforter does in styling a bed; one has to be very conscious with the choice of comforter. Comforter is a type of large top sheet which is made up of two lengths of coverings usually sewn together. A comforter is filled with some insulating material to give warmth and coziness while you enjoy your quality time. You can always choose the level of warmth and obviously the size, weight of your comforter based on the climate you live in and your personal preferences that match with your mood and personality.

Most people get confused with the term comforter and duvet, they presume both as same things but these are different but closely related. So while buying a comforter you must distinguish between the two  as comforter is double spread sheets sewn together and filled with insulating material, its one to one top sheet that doesn’t come separate covering. Comforters are flatter comparatively. On the other hand duvets tend to be fluffier than comforter, they comes with covering that can easily be washed even on daily basis.


So let’s get back to the tips of choosing a comforter wisely. Depending on the bed size, select the size of your comforter. They usually come in twin, twin XL, full, full/queen, oversized queen, king and oversized king. Choose the size accordingly as it’s really obvious that king sized comforter doesn’t suit on twin bed or vice versa. Similarly if you buy a comforter smaller than your bed size, it will look silly and lack functioning.


Look of a comforter also matters a lot as it is going to depict your personality and taste. Comforter covers your bed and it holds the very first glance when a person enters into a room. Well, while selecting the outer fabric, you must consider the local climate, your body temperature and your aesthetic sense. Usually comforter is offered in cotton, silk, bamboo and blended fabric. COTTON is best for summers as it absorbs your sweating and gives light feeling while SILK gives an elegant look to your bed.
