I Ditched My Thick Down Comforter for This Lightweight Version — and I’m Never Going Back

I Ditched My Thick Down Comforter for This Lightweight Version — and I’m Never Going Back

If you were to take a look inside my linen closet, you’d find a pile of beloved comforters, all of the large, plushy variety. When it comes to bedding, I adore comforters. I’ve been a longtime devotee of thick down comforters, even throughout the hot summer months (I’m a big fan of cranking up the AC when I sleep). However, as I recently moved to a new apartment, I wanted a change and decided that now was the perfect opportunity to experiment with different (and more eco-friendly) bedding. For the past few weeks, I have been testing out a comforter that’s completely out of my wheelhouse — the lightweight Coyuchi Diamond-Stitched Organic Cotton Comforter — and to say I’m sold is beyond an understatement.

Made from Coyuchi’s versatile crinkled percale fabric, this comforter is luxurious in both feel and design. It features double-needle diamond-shaped quilting that both houses the organic cotton batting and gives the undyed-cotton exterior (also available in Shadow and Alpine White) a gorgeous draped look. More of a duvet fan? No worries. This comforter will also work for you: It doubles as an insert thanks to the included corner loops for secure duvet anchoring (they’ve thought of everything!).

Now, I’ll admit it — when I first opened up this comforter I was a bit skeptical, as it was a lot lighter than I had (naively) expected. However, after trying it for just a couple of nights, I found myself liking it more and more. To effectively test it, I began using it at the beginning of spring so I could see how it worked on both cooler and warmer evenings. To my surprise, I found myself comfortable no matter the temperature. The cool, percale fabric kept me from overheating on hotter nights while the cotton interior kept me warm when numbers dipped. This lightweight comforter did such a great job at keeping me comfortable that I never once considered switching back to a thicker one. In fact, when I eventually went to the linen closet for a clean set of bed sheets, I looked at my old comforter pile and thought to myself, “I need to get rid of some of these.”

Another thing I love about the comforter is that it’s made with sustainability in mind. Since 1991, Coyuchi has been a leader in organic bedding thanks to its environmentally responsible production methods and buy-back recycling program. (The Coyuchi2nd Home Take Back program will recycle and renew your old Coyuchi linens and give you 15 percent off your next order!) Knowing that the products I’m investing in aren’t going to end up in a landfill is just one of many reasons this comforter is helping me sleep better at night. And now through 3/15 — during Coyuchi’s Refresh for Spring Event — you can save $30 off $200, $80 off $400, and $150 off $600, in case you needed a little more incentive. Here’s to better sleep, in every sense of the word.

The 10 Best Places to Shop for Cozy Comforters

The 10 Best Places to Shop for Cozy Comforters

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission.

Cooler nights call for warmer, cozier blankets — it’s just science. There’s nothing quite like cozying up with a fluffy comforter that turns your normal bed into a snuggly hibernation den, and you want to make sure you’re getting one that’s not just comfy, but also well made and built to last. While a quality comforter can be pricey, they really do last a lifetime. So where should you be shopping for your next comforter? With affordable picks from places like Bed Bath & Beyond and Macy’s to luxe selections from high-end home retailers like Parachute and Coyuchi, we rounded up 10 of our favorite places to shop for the best comforters today. Sweet dreams await.

Note: All prices listed are for size Full/Queen.

No matter what you’re looking for, chances are The Company Store has you covered. Shop by size, material, color, and price to find the perfect option for your bed, whether that’s an ultra-thick down comforter or a fun patterned comforter set. One of the brand’s bestsellers is the LaCrosse comforter, which comes in four different warmth options (light, medium, extra, ultra) and over 20 colors. Other great finds include the Dual Down Comforter for couples, the Bamboo Sateen Comforter, and the LoftAIRE Down Alternative Comforter.

For an ultra-luxe option (that also happens to be an AT favorite!), check out Riley Home. This cult-favorite goose down comforter has deservedly made it onto dozens of “best of” lists, so you know it’s good. Available in three sizes and two warmth options (all season and extra warm), this is the holy grail of comforters — and it has the price to prove it. Not a fan of down? Check out their down alternative option.

We can always count on Macy’s for affordable, quality bedding, including their comforter selection. From printed sets to classic white options, Macy’s has a comforter for everyone. (Fact: There are currently 997 models to choose from!) For something budget friendly and seriously cozy, you can’t go wrong with this classic Hotel Collection down alternative comforter.

For the best that nature has to offer, shop Coyuchi’s organic comforters and quilts. Every piece is GOTS and MADE SAFE certified and crafted from organic materials, so you can feel extra good about taking it to bed with you. Their organic cotton comforter is a versatile, year-round option — you can use it on its own as a quilt, layered with blankets, or added on top of a duvet for extra warmth. Also check out their Wool Duvet Insert, which is down free and hypoallergenic.

With “Bed” in its name, you know Bed Bath & Beyond has a great selection of comforters. While there are fewer traditional comforters, you’ll find tons of colorful, patterned options that’ll make a statement in your space. Narrow it down by size, color, type, and ratings to find the set of your dreams, like this reversible down alternative set, an affordable option that looks great in every color. 

If you want to feel like you’re sleeping in a cloud, you need a Brooklinen comforter. All of Brooklinen’s bedding is ridiculously soft, responsibly manufactured, and made with top-quality materials. Made with microfibers that have the exact texture of down, the down alternative comforter is, in our humble opinion, one of the best down alternative comforters on the market. (And their regular down comforter isn’t too bad either!)

Our friends at L.L. Bean know a thing or two about staying warm, even when you’re sleeping. Shop their selection of relatively affordable comforters to find exactly what your bedroom needs, whether that’s a fleece-backed option or a flannel bedding set. The Ultrasoft Cotton Comforter comes in three sizes and six colors and is designed to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 

You probably already love Parachute for their premium home goods, especially bedding. With a commitment to social responsibility and superior quality products, it’s a great place to shop for bedding of all kinds. Their Down Duvet Insert, available in lightweight or all-season options, is filled with European down and is extra lofty for ultimate comfort.   

Picky about your bedding? Buffy lets you try their comforters for seven nights to make sure you like it. With free shipping and free returns, testing out a Buffy comforter is a no-brainer. The comforters are also really good too, especially if you’re a hot sleeper. The Buffy Cloud is made from eucalyptus that’s grown using ten times less water than cotton and is super soft and breathable. Also, check out the Buffy Breeze, a slightly more expensive option that’s impressively temperature regulating.

With a tagline like “let’s get comfy,” you know the comforter selection at Lands’ End must be good. This organic cotton duvet is filled with 600 fill power down, made from unbleached cotton and woven with a soft touch. Even better, it has a box quilt pattern that makes for a classic look that’s pretty enough without a duvet cover.
