A duvet and comforter will definitely keep you warm on a cold winter night, but trying to figure out which one is better to buy can be a bit tricky until you know the differences between them, especially if you’re an allergy sufferer.
A duvet is usually white in color and filled with down or a down alternative. You may hear duvets called “down comforters,” but comforters typically refer to warm bedding that could be any color or have any pattern, not just solid white.
Comforters may have down inside, but they are usually filled with synthetic material, which is what you want if you have allergies.
If you want a pattern or color and are hesitant to buy a duvet because you’re not really sure what it is, just purchase a duvet cover as well to protect it, which is essentially a duvet case that you can remove and wash.
