Tiffney Marechal Duvet Covers March 21, 2018 21:35:12
The more expensive types of duvet inserts down and silk comforters are excellent insulators making the combination of insert and cover very thin and light weight for the amount of insulation and warmth they provide. Other types of inserts that are now available though not equal to down and silk comforters still provide very good bed cover qualities.
It is true that there are a limited number of bed sizes in the US - twin full queen etc. - and that the corresponding duvet insert or duvet cover sizes will fit their respective beds. However if you are not purchasing the duvet insert and cover as a set size can be an issue. It is not a matter of having either item fit the bed but the insert and cover need to fit each other. It is worth a little time up front to avoid bringing home a duvet cover that looks too big and sloppy because it is too big or one that causes your duvet insert to bunch-up because the cover is too small.
