...against duvet covers!! I just feel like they would never line up! And the corners would be limp and empty and the whole thing would nest in the middle.

Is this the case?

I've never had a duvet, only quilts really. But they sell some really beautiful ones!

If you have one, what do you think?

After being introduced to them in Europe 15+ years ago, it's the only thing I'll have on my bed. I absolutely love them. My kids have them too. A Duvet and a fitted sheet. Easy to make up in the morning too.

I love duvets. There are ways to keep take care of the corners.
Sew a little strip of twill tape across each corner of the comforter. On the inside of duvet stitch either a length of grosgrain ribbon or a strip of velcro to each corner. Tie or velcro through the loops on the comforter. That will keep it in place inside the duvet.

Love them. It's all I have. Typical bed covers just feel wrong to me. Too heavy. Too stiff. Just not as nice as a duvet.

If your quilt does not have tuck flaps I would recommend buying a cover and putting it over your quilt and seeing how it looks. All a duvet inner really is unpatterned quilt.

If you don't like it fold it up very very carefully and take it back.

I love them! It's all I've used for the last 19 years.

I've had no problems with the corners being saggy & the duvet bunching in the middle. The feathers like to shift, but that's because the duvet is channeled. Next one will not be.

Anyway, I change out the covers frequently. It helps keep my husband's allergies at bay. Plus, the duvet gets rotated with each cover change.

I grew up using blanket covers (like a seersucker sheet, sort of) but they're hard to find now. Instead, I just use a duvet cover over the down comforter, blanket, or whatever is on the bed. It works fine.

ETA by "over," I mean on top of. I just lay it over the other bedding and then fold over the top of the sheet.

We call a duvet a 'doona' here. Everyone has them. I changed the bedding today. We have a King size bed. The stupid doona cover has freakin buttons on it. Seriously, who puts buttons on a doona cover? The damn things are hard enough to put on already, especially big King sized ones. I must admit, I don't think I've ever sworn as much as I did this morning whilst changing the M&$@F*&# doona cover! I could NOT get that freakin thing in straight!

In the end I just left it a wee bit crooked, but on DSO's side LOL!

I LOVE my doona!!! In fact, I love it so much, my boys bought me a doona suit for mothers day. It's a jacket and pants made out of a doona. It is the MOST comfortable piece of clothing ever made, and super warm and cosy. I wear it in winter instead of dragging my doona out to the couch. It's called a Lazypatch Suit. Mine has the cow print top and black pants. Warm AND supremely stylish, lol. Lazypatch Suit

Psst...AussieMeg,

The easiest way, I've found, to get the duvet in the cover is this:

Lay the cover flat across the bed with the opening toward you.

Fold the duvet in half (top to bottom), then half again (side to side). It's now small enough to go into the opening. Scooch the folded duvet into the corner that corresponds to the corners. As opposed to putting the folded portion into the corner. Make sense?

Next, unfold the duvet so that you have the bottom half of the cover filled.

Now, grab one of the empty corners. You are going to grasp the corresponding corner of the duvet, from the outside. You have to finagle the duvet a little. Then, do the same with the other empty corner.

Next up is going around to the other side of the bed. Grabbing the corners that you have already got ready for this step. Now, shake that puppy as if you were just fluffing it. This will bring the side between those corners into position and fluff all at the same time.

Still a little work. But, easiest method I've found.

Hope this helps.

Nothing but duvets for us for many, many years. I don't have a problem with them bunching or anything like that. The duvets themselves (particularly feather ones) are usually 'boxed' so that the feathers don't accumulate in one section.

And SO much easier to make the bed every day!

Are you sure you'll be able to get it on?...what if it has buttons?

I've never used anything else. My parents are from Europe and feather doonas are all I have ever known.
Putting the covers on doesn't stress me...but I don't stress if it isn't perfectly straight. I like the button up ones and I've never found buttons particularly stressful either.
You sleep under it, it gets wrinkled and moves around, I shake it out every morning and it looks a bit neater... does it matter if the corners aren't perfectly in the corner?
Maybe my standards are just too low.

For a similar sleeping experience, but a little easier, check out jenniferadamshome.com tutorial on making the bed up with 3 flat sheets, she explains it all while she tries to sell her ridiculously expensive sheets, but there are some good tips.

I use a duvet, I just love the way it feels, and I don't have any problems keeping the thing where it belongs.

I've never know anything else except a duvet. We've had them for years and years. I doubt that anyone uses blankets etc in the UK. They come in different tog ( warmth) rates. Some for winter ( higher tog) or lower togs for summer. You can get them in different fillings too. Duck down/feathers or polyester fillings for people with allergies.

Mine is a king size one and I turn the cover inside out, grab the corners through the cover and shake the rest of the cover down the duvet.

Never liked them, either.

First I am allergic to feathers and second, I have bursitis issues with my right arm, so shaking it each day would bother me.

I do love the look, but not the bother.

My cousin has one and it drives me crazy when I visit.

Love my duvet! I wouldn't use anything else.

All duvets do not have feathers. I haven't had one with feathers in at least 20 years. There are some excellent quality down ones (and man-made too)on the market.

I rarely shake mine. It stays in place nicely.

What's the reason for them as opposed to other bedding? Duvets are very convenient, varying weights/warmth levels depending on your preference, you only need the duvet plus a cover so less washing (although I know some people like to put a sheet under it) easy to make the bed.....

What do you mean by a spread? What else do you have on the bed? To me a bedspread (if it's the same thing) is a top cover to go over sheets and blankets etc but that may be a common language difference

Picture a duvet as a down filled blanket. They usually come in white or cream. It covers the entire bed. A duvet cover is like a pillow case for the duvet. These come in patterns and solids.

The advantage is that to make up the bed you only need a bottom sheet and the duvet. To make up your bed in the morning you just shake out the duvet a few times to redistribute the feathers. This action will also smooth out the cover. Rearrange your pillows and that's it. Much faster than making a bed with a bottom sheet, top sheet and blankets. It feels better too.

We've been using duvets since I was born (1960) because my Mother is German and they are very popular in Europe. I love them!

Love my IKEA duvet covers. I wouldn't switch back to the everyday bedspread. I love snuggling down in the covers at night and when it gets warmer out I just switch the weight of it. The look is casual depending on your cover. It does take a while to do the king size bed but I feel it's well worth it. IKEA had a sale on the mid weight recently. For the duvet covers I always watch at IKEA for a sale or clearance just so that I can redecorate.

I love the ease of cleaning. All mine are washable and when I had DCO ones in the past, they were far less expensive to have cleaned than a comforter. I do have two comforters that I love, but it is 80$ to have them cleaned vs. tossing a duvet in the wash.

I got hooked on them while traveling in the UK last summer. I came home and got one at Ikea - it's synthetic, which avoids the down allergy. I won't ever go back to the top sheet/comforter combination. LOVE my duvet and cover.

We have had down duvets for the past 20 years I would never have anything else. i don't tie the corners or anything. I just give it a good shake every morning and it is fine. I like that it keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I also like that you can change the look just by replacing the cover.

That's so funny that someone mentioned Jennifer Adams homes.
My husband got me a set of sheets from there late last year.
We just put them on the bed this week for the first time.
LOVE THEM. They really do feel luxurious. After going to the website
I found that they will be at Costco 2 more times this year, so I will be getting 2 more sets.

Can someone tell me what it is called that they use in Austria or maybe Germany?

My sister traveled there in the 1980s and brought back a beautiful feather comforter but it had buttons on the top that you would button a sheet to. Basically instead of having a loose top sheet on the bed, the top sheet was folded over and buttoned to the comforter. I have never seen anything like it since and I thought it was really neat. So maybe I am calling it the wrong thing or something or maybe they don't use them anymore.

Does your covers have a large or full opening then? I have 2 covers that have openings that are about half the bottom end. There is no way that turning the cover inside out is going to work with those.

The others aren't fully open either. But, they aren't near as small as those 2.

So, if your covers open fully, where did you get them?



oh, maybe I'm the only one who uses a top sheet on my bed. Then the down comforter (duvet) or a light cotton blanket in warmer weather. Then the duvet cover on top of that.


Nope, not the only one.

On my bed right now is: bottom sheet, top sheet, 2 blankets, quilt and then duvet. There are times we add another blanket. Plus, I wear flannel pjs. Shirt and pants, because I'm too cold with out pants.

Are we just freakishly cold or are the duvet only peas freakishly hot natured?

Me either. Fitted sheet, duvet. Done.

And I struggled a bit at first with our king sized duvet and getting the comforter in there. But I've been doing it for years now and I am pretty proficient at it. I wash the duvet at least once a week. Sometimes more. I can wrestle the comforter in and out in record time now!

You would think!

I don't know what the sheets are. I'm sure they are a mixed fabric though. One blanket is Egyptian cotton. I'm almost postitive the other is also cotton. The quilt is definitely cotton. The duvet is down.

Does your covers have a large or full opening then? I have 2 covers that have openings that are about half the bottom end. There is no way that turning the cover inside out is going to work with those.

I purchase most of my bedding at Winners (TJMaxx). I really want the Westin Heavenly Bed collection, though. So comfy.

Even my duvet covers with a smaller opening go on inside out, but it's a 2-person job. It's just the best way to get the duvet into the corners.

I always go up a size for my comforters so the duvet feels full and fluffy. For instance, we have a queen size bed so we buy king size down comforters and full/queen duvet covers.

As far as I know, duvet is just another word for a down comforter, or I guess any big, filled comforter (as opposed to a flat cotton quilt).

I always go up a size for my comforters so the duvet feels full and fluffy. For instance, we have a queen size bed so we buy king size down comforters and full/queen duvet covers.


So you put a duvet and a comforter in a duvet cover?




Today, I will be colouring outside the lines.

A duvet is the washable cover. The comforter is the down filled insert.

I wish I had thought to put a king comforter into a full/queen duvet. My daughter has cheaper stuff on her bed and it's not as fluffy.

Does your covers have a large or full opening then? I have 2 covers that have openings that are about half the bottom end. There is no way that turning the cover inside out is going to work with those.


My cover's opening is about half the width of the of the side and it's easy to put the duvet it... I have a queen bed, but use a king size duvet and cover because I like it to hang over the sides of the bed that bit longer... The opening on my cover is at the footboard end... I grab one top corner and tuck it right into the corner of the cover, then use one of those office clamp things to hold it in place... Do the same for the other top side.... Give it a shake, lay it on the bed, and try to remember to take the clips off... I use a sheet under mine so I have to take off/launder/put back on the cover even less... Once the cover's on the duvet doesn't shift around much - you don't have to wrestle and reposition with it every morning... It's really just a fluff in the mornings...
