Need to cover up a hole in an old comforter? Or need to hide a stain? Don’t throw out your out-of-style or old comforters and don’t waste your money on a new one. Instead, invest in a duvet cover — the removable, machine-washable and customized option to comforters. If you’re considering a new duvet cover for an old insert or comforter, we’ve rounded up the most comfortable and durable options.
Comforter vs. duvet: What’s the difference?
A comforter is a large type of bedding similar to a blanket or quilt. It is often the top layer of a bed and is one piece; the inside of a comforter cannot be removed without completely deconstructing it. A duvet insert is also a large type of bedding that rests atop the bed. The insert is then put inside of a duvet cover — an often colorful and soft case.
Duvet covers are similar to pillowcases in that they encapsulate the blanket, comforter or duvet insert on a bed and can be easily removed. They’re often ideal if you sleep with your pets (like I do) or you want to wash your bedding often. Duvet covers are a lot easier to wash than large comforters.
