VERY lightweight…and you can make it as heavy as you want, depending on your duvet,” one reviewer writes. “The ties around the corners and middle are amazing to hold your duvet in place. Also, the zipper is of great quality. I had no problems while inserting my duvet and making the bed!!”

This airy bb
Luxe Duvet Cover
- Available in bright colors and prints
- Long and short side labels
- Some reviewers say the cover is too large
Brooklinen is one of the biggest names in the game for a reason: They have the coziest bedding and a bunch of colorways to choose from. And I gotta give a special shout-out to them for making this duvet with large, easy-to-fasten buttons. Bless up!
THE REVIEWS: “The best sleep,” writes one reviewer. “Our friends had raved about Brooklinen and we finally splurged and within a week, ordered more sets. So soft and luxurious, we had the best sleep in these sheets. Highly recommend. :)”
Linen Duvet Cover
- Linen and cotton blend that’s perfect for year-round use
- Get softer with every wash
- One reviewer says the fabric is a little too thin
If you can’t decide between linen and cotton, this Riley Home duvet cover is
the best of both worlds. One side is linen (made from flax fibers) and the other is a cotton percale. Ideal, TBH.
MY REVIEW: It’s not too cool, but not too cozy—the perfect in-between option for those of us who are moody AF about our sleeping preferences.

This Bedding With Texture
Eyelet Duvet Set
- Super soft four-over-one under weave
- Made from 100 percent organic cotton threads
- Only available in neutral tones
I love a neutral with a slight twist! This gray duvet looks like another classic, but a close-up peek reveals cute little holes (aka eyelets) at the center and along the edges.
THE REVIEWS: “Love this duvet set! The fabric is super soft and the eyelet design lays flat after washing,” writes one reviewer. “I was hesitant to buy it because I was afraid the eyelet might shrink disproportionately to the duvet itself but I have not had any problems. It’s really pretty and comfortable!”
This Sleek Set
Sateen Duvet Cover
Parachute also makes bomb dot com linen bedding, but cool-to-the-touch sateen is the perfect material for treating yourself.
MY REVIEW: Parachute bedding is elite. IYKYK. And if you’ve never tried anything from the cult-favorite home brand, go ahead and add this sateen duvet cover to your cart.
This Polka-Dot Cutie
The Harper Black and White
- Made from 100 percent long-staple cotton
- Zipper closure is at the bottom of the duvet cover
- Not available in other prints
Three words: buttery soft, baby!! Pro style tip: Keep things chill by pairing this speckled duvet with white sheets or crank up the glam with baby pink accents.
MY REVIEW: The polka dots look playful and whimsical, while black edge piping creates a tailored and sophisticated finish. The best of both worlds if you ask me!

What is the difference between a comforter and a duvet cover?
To help explain the difference between a comforter and a duvet cover (which is kind of like comparing apples to oranges), let’s define the different types of fluffy bed toppers, shall we? A comforter is a thick, soft, quilted blanket with an insulating interior and a pretty exterior that’s meant to be seen. A duvet is also quilted and filled with something warm—down or down-alternative, usually—but the outside isn’t as aesthetically pleasing. And that’s because duvets are designed to be shoved into a duvet cover, which is a protective and decorative layer that slips over the duvet and has a zipper or button closure. So, to answer your questions, comforters should be compared to duvets (not duvet covers)—the main distinction between a comforter and a duvet is that a duvet is designed to be shoved inside a duvet cover.
What is a duvet cover used for?
Now that you know the definition of a duvet cover, you’re probably wondering what, exactly, the point of one is. Like, why not just use a comforter instead of buying a duvet and a duvet cover? Good news: I’ve got answers for that, too! Here are some major perks to using a duvet cover.
Protects your duvet
Duvet covers protect your cozy (and expensive!!) down blanket from rips, stains, and general wear and tear. There are even hypoallergenic duvet covers that’ll help keep allergens (like dust and feathers) away from your sensitive, sneezy self (relatable).
Is easy to wash
Since your actual duvet won’t really see the light of day when they’re tucked away in a duvet cover, you don’t have to clean it as frequently. Just slip off the cover and wash that with your sheets instead of washing the heavy, bulky down comforter.
Decorates your home
A duvet is a smart option if you like to switch up your bedroom design since the covers can be super inexpensive and are easy to store. Stock up on a few cute designs, so you can swap them out when you’re in need of a little vibe change.
How to choose the best duvet cover
Consider the climate you live in and your sleeping habits
Maybe you’re shopping for a beach house bedroom or maybe you just can’t stop sweating in your sleep—either way, we recommend a lightweight and breathable duvet cover like one made from eco-friendly bamboo or hypoallergenic linen. On the contrary, if you want something warm and cozy for cold climates, try a flannel duvet cover.
Think about cost and durability
If you’re looking for something cheap, consider microfiber or polycotton duvet covers. If softness and durability are your top priorities, ya can’t go wrong with a cotton duvet cover (especially fancy long-staple cotton that feels silky, like prima cotton or Egyptian cotton).
Decide what kind of closure you want
This one’s more of a personal preference, so here are the pros and cons of each to help you decide. A zipper is faster and more convenient, but it can make the edges of a duvet cover look and feel stiff. Buttoning up a duvet cover takes longer and the buttons tend to come undone, but they’re more subtle in appearance and won’t get stuck like a zipper. Plus, repairing or replacing a zipper is more difficult than sewing on a single button.
