When I first moved out I treated myself to the best down duvet I could afford! It was floofy and big and plesantly heavy and had a ‘romantic’ feel to it…anyone who owns big floofly duvets knows what I mean. Here is the problem though, I am a very warm sleeper and prone to night sweats. Within the first few nights I knew I picked wrong. Plus the cover for it never stayed on right..andI even retrofitted it with some snaps to help hold it in place. After two years I replaced it with a basic Walmart comforter. It’s not as nice…but at the end of the day I need to be comfortable.
Though….if I didn’t have my little night sweat problem I’d be team duvet all the way!
Duvet, with a duvet cover (I like west elm’s), no top sheet. My duvet and cover have corner ties, so there’s slippage. And it’s super easy to make the bed because there no sheet to fuss with. I have several duvet covers, and change out the duvet cover along with the bed sheet.
mrslovebird12 : duvet all the way! My husband is a sweaty sleeper so being able to wash the cover regularly is big. I also got a really nice duvet but I can buy cheaper covers whenever I want a new look.
We have a duvet (synthetic) in the winter (with a top sheet as well) but just a thin cotton quilt for spring/summer/fall. Fiance is a human oven. Comforters get gross and you’d have to have a backup for when it’s being cleaned.
