How To Buy the Right Down for You
Choosing a Comforter
Finding a comforter that’s right for you should not be a confusing task. For an unparalleled sleeping experience, you should consider these two factors:
1. YOUR LEVEL OF WARMTH
To select the ideal comforter, you must consider such factors as season, climate, heating system and thermostat setting. Most of our classic comforters are now offered in three weights to best suit your needs.
Summer Weight: Ideal for the warm sleeper, warm climates or when the room temperature is above 70°F.
All Year Weight: Our most popular choice. This all-season comforter is perfect for year round use and for those who keep their bedroom temperature between 60°F and 65°F.
Winter Weight: Ideal for the cold sleeper, cool bedrooms, very cold climates and for those who prefer extra warmth during the winter season.
2. YOUR LEVEL OF QUALITY
We have classified our comforters into 7 different categories, in order to help you easily select the comforter that best suits your needs.

Choosing the Right PillowChoosing the right pillow is essential to having a good night’s rest. With so many pillows out there, this task might seem difficult but is, in fact, quite simple. In order to decide which pillow is right for you, there are two factors you need to consider:
1. YOUR FIRMNESS LEVEL
Your specific sleeping style will determine the firmness of your pillow.
Stomach sleepers prefer a soft, plump pillow that cushions and supports the head and neck gently, while allowing the head to sink into the perfect level.
Back sleepers prefer a medium density pillow that positions the head and neck in line with the natural curvature of the spine. Side sleepers prefer a firm pillow that provides more support and positions the head, neck, and shoulders in harmonious horizontal alignment.
2. YOUR PREFERRED FILL TYPE
Down: Down is nature’s premiere fill and insulator. Because down is so lightweight, it's one of the most comfortable and most desired fills for pillows and comforters. Down has the amazing ability to breathe, lifting moisture away from the sleeper.
The most luxurious pillows are those that are filled with white goose down. A down pillow is shaped for comfort and support and molds superbly to your head and neck. We offer 6 types of down. The higher the fill power, the higher quality the pillow. Down pillows last longer and hold up better than synthetic fills. Down/Feather Blend: Down/Feather-filled pillows are firmer than down filled pillows. They are an excellent choice for those who want a firmer support. Comforel Down Alternative Fill: A wonderful hypoallergenic microfiber fill that offers down-like comfort, loft and softness, at a more economical price than down. This fill is perfect for sleepers who are allergy prone.
