Throughout my website you will find all sorts of reviews on everything “bed comfort”. This includes mattresses and pillows, but my little creation wouldn’t be complete without offering you some information on comforters as well. Mattresses and pillows will deal with both support and comfort but the comforter you choose is also important if you want the ultimate in luxury from top to bottom with your bed.
In the following few words, you will find some very quick reviews on both goose down and alternative comforters, but I am aware there can be a massive difference in price. So, whilst I’m going to deal with goose down first, if the alternative is what you’re looking for just click here and you’ll be taken straight to that section of this page.
OK, for those of you interested in goose down comforters, let’s get going…..
Best Goose Down Comforter Overall
It’s no secret there are hundreds of different comforters available on the market so finding the one that deserves the label “best goose down comforter” wasn’t easy to decide on. However, I think I’ve found it in the form of the Royal Hotel 100% Egyptian Cotton Solid White Goose Down Comforter.
In my humble opinion this comforter is luxury personified. On the inside, the comforter is stuffed solid with hand harvested white goose down from Siberia and is designed to offer a medium amount of warmth throughout the year. The 1500TC 100% Egyptian Cotton cover is hypoallergenic so you won’t be bothered by runny eyes or stuffy noses. However it does have to be dry cleaned due to the materials used.
Another very nice touch is the baffle box design which helps to avoid any movement when you’re sleeping, and the side gusset offers maximum warmth. The whole thing is pure white and you can buy it in sizes California King, Full, King and Queen.
Best Value King Goose Down Comforter
There is nothing better than climbing under a comfortable duvet that gives that sense of luxury, and if you’ve skimmed over the review above and decided it might be out of your price range perhaps this one will suit you better because it does cost less.
You pretty much get all of the benefits mentioned above including the 750+ fill power. What this means if you’ve never come across the term before is that you get more down and less weight. The end result is a comforter that will not only keep you warm, but is literally as light as a feather.
The only other major difference with this comforter is the fact the cotton on the cover is 1200TC as oppose to 1500. There have been some murmurings about the size with this model so just to clear that up, the down measures 106 x 90 inches.
Just as a side note, you might want to think about this comforter as a gift because the manufacturer has put a lot of thought into the initial presentation which includes elegant zippered packaging.
Best Hypoallergenic Goose Down Comforter
Again, I stick with a medium warmth comforter because I think these are the best for all year round comfort. This model holds 40 ounces of white goose down filling at 600 fill power (among the highest on the market). Another great point about this comforter is the fact that the manufacturer has made the 100% cotton cover leak proof which helps with longevity.
This duvet also has a box baffle design but again, the manufacturer has gone one step further. Instead of using a regular box baffle, they have gone with the patented PermaBaffle instead. What this means is the down within stays where it should, and since you can machine wash this comforter, that’s of the utmost importance.
There are various sizes available including Twin, King and Full/Queen. If you’re interested, it can also be purchased in Extra Warmth White Down as an alternative.
So, there you have it. Some quick reviews on what I think are the best goose down comforters on the market at the moment.
Now, for the down alternative comforters.
Best Value Goose Down Alternative Comforter
If, just out of curiosity, you looked at the prices some of the goose down comforters are available for, you’ll be utterly amazed at how much cheaper an alternative is. The Chezmoi collection is one such set of comforters I cannot fault in this respect, and that’s why I chose this one as my “best value”.
It’s not just price where you can benefit from a down alternative comforter either. Because of the materials they’re made from there is less chance of allergy flare-ups and this one is 100% hypoallergenic due to the fact it’s made from Allergy Free Poly Fiber.
It’s completely white and is box stitched so the material inside won’t shift, and one really neat touch that I like is the fact you have four corner tabs that will anchor a duvet cover into place. It is machine washable, but do be careful to use a cold water cycle.
You can buy this one in Queen or King size.
Best All Season Down Alternative Comforter
It’s not generally like me to rave about any of the products I review on my website because I’m conscious of swaying your decision. However, I can’t help it with this comforter! It’s reasonably priced, is truly an “all season” comforter which will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer, and best of all, many customers are incredibly happy about how well it fluffs.
In fact, if you already find it hard to get out of bed, this comforter won’t help. It has 100 ounces of fill, and for me, is the perfect alternative for those of you who have allergies to down comforters. It comes in white and is machine washable, but be sure to read the instructions carefully because choosing the wrong wash cycle could cause you problems.
Available in King, Full/Queen and Twin/Twin XL, if you’re looking for a down alternative comforter I have to say, I think you should at least take a closer look at this one.
Best Warm Down Alternative Comforter
If there is one thing I’ve learned about sleeping (and there have been many over the past months) it’s this. Some people get too hot at night, and others just don’t seem to be able to get warm. In fact, I have discovered that people who find it hard to get warm think that down comforters is the only answer, but what if you’re allergic?
Well, this down alternative comforter from Natural Comfort really will do the trick if you feel the cold, and if you think it’s heavy, think again. It’s all because of the material used which is soft and fluffy so you won’t feel like you’re being weighed down, but at the same time, it will keep you really warm.
It has 7 inch stitched boxes to help keep the filling in place, and like my choice for the best value down alternative comforter, it has four tabs to help keep your duvet cover in place. It’s machine washable so easy to care for, and you can choose from Queen XL, Full or King.
Best Hypoallergenic Down Alternative Comforter
Allergies and price are the main reasons for people to buy a down alternative comforter. However, manufacturers are well aware that we all want that feeling of down even though the fibers are synthetic. In my opinion Pinzon has managed both with this model.
Made with a patented filling called PrimaLoft, it will be hard to find anything else on the market that gets as close to the feeling of down like this one. The manufacturer has managed to mimic the affects down gives like lightness, fluffiness and of course, warmth!
They have also managed to gain that “loft” that many down comforters have and this is because of the ribbon fiber technology used. All in all (and I know I’m raving again), I think this is one of the best hypoallergenic down alternative comforter’s on the market right now. I must also mention this is one of the only comforters I’ve come across that recommends machine washing only and it’s available in Twin, King and Full/Queen.
