Luxury Bedding 101: Why Customers Fall in Love with Down Duvets and Comforters

by Mitchell Chitiz

During the last couple of months we’ve taken a deep dive into Down duvets; what they consist of, their construction, and even which one might suit you the best.

But one thing that we haven’t talked about yet is why Down duvets are so popular. Even with their higher price point, why have they become the go-to for sleep-loving consumers? Today, we’re discussing why Down duvets are becoming the most popular choice of bedding for consumers everywhere. 

Here are some advantages that a Down duvet has over other types of bedding.


The Benefits of a Down Duvet or Comforter



One of the most important qualities a Down duvet or comforter needs to have is how warm it keeps us, especially for those of us in colder climates. Down duvets are superior at providing warmth because the down inside of them are natural insulators.



While warm, Down duvets and comforters are also breathable. They’re light as air and allow the moisture and sweat to wick off of our bodies while we sleep. With a Down duvet or comforter, you’ll never wake up in the middle of the night throwing off your covers. The Down fill can keep the cold out while also allowing the comforter to breathe.



Because Down duvets and comforters are warm while still being breathable, they can regulate your body temperature much more effectively than a regular duvet or comforter. They offer warmth without all the added weight and are capable of taking you through both summer and winter easily. We all love a versatile product!


Hypoallergenic and Easy to Maintain

Since these duvets naturally wick away moisture, they prevent perspiration and germs from gathering. They can also be washed in a washing machine and dryer. Here at Westex, all of our Down duvets and comforters are also treated with antimicrobial treatments to ensure that they stay free from bacteria, microbes, and unwanted odours. 



Down duvets offer the most luxurious sleep experience. You will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Those who have experience using a Down duvet or comforter often comment on how they will never go back to using anything else!


Great Long-term Investment

A high-quality Down duvet can last up to 10 or 20 years! They are known for their longevity and are an investment in the quality of your sleep.

Having read through some of the major benefits associated with Down duvets, hopefully, you agree that they are worthy of their reputation as being the epitome of luxury bedding that many bedding customers are looking for.  


What Should Retail Buyers Consider When Speaking with a Bedding Manufacturer?

If you’re looking to add wholesale Down duvets and comforters to your home product line, you should think of it from your customer’s perspective. 


What are the Characteristics That Your Customers Look for in a Great Duvet?

To source only the highest quality wholesale Down comforters, you should ask your potential bedding manufacture about the following:


Thread Count

The higher the thread count, the warmer the duvet will be. The general rule of thumb is that it should have a minimum of 250 to be of quality.


Fill Power

In a similar fashion to thread count, the higher the fill power, the more luxurious the Down duvet and comforter will look and feel.



You should also understand what construction method is being used for the duvets and comforters and pick the method that delivers the results you are looking for in a Down duvet.


Down Type

And lastly, the Down type used to fill the duvet is another important factor to consider. You can choose from goose, duck or recycled Down. Goose is the top of the line.
