What makes a down comforter so magical? Basically, super fine feathers are used to make an extremely lightweight comforter that somehow still keeps you cozy and warm (and if you get the right one, it’s even breezy enough for the summer).
Teal talk: Sleeping is, hands down, one of my favorite activities. What’s not to love? You get to put on your comfiest clothes, climb into your oh-so-welcoming bed, and burrito yourself up in super-soft sheets and maybe even a weighted blanket if you’re lucky. Plus, there’s always the chance that you’ll have an uber-realistic dream where your boyfriend Harry Styles is feeding you grapes and giving you a foot massage all at, er, once. But the thing is, you can have the nicest set of silk sheets and the perfect pillow for your side-sleeping bod—but if you don’t have the right blanket, then your whole snoozefest could be ruined! If your comforter is too thin, you’re gonna wake up shivering in the middle of the night. And if it’s too heavy, you’re definitely gonna wind up drenched in your own sweat (gross, but true).
This is why I am advocating for universal access to the best down comforters for all (no matter what your budget is). Having the perfect floofy blanket on your bed really is a game-changer.
Read on for the best down comforters (plus a few vegan options) and get ready for an excellent night’s snooze. And P.S. If you’re trying to craft your best bed ever, read up on flannel sheets, cotton sheets, bamboo sheets, and linen sheets.
