How to Choose a Comforter for Staying Cozy in Winters
Finding a great comforter for the upcoming winters is just like finding a perfect winter dress that fits you perfectly, keeps you warm and comfortable and doesn’t give you any skin problems. When investing in the quality of a good comforter, finding the right one to fit your personal style can depend on making a few right choices. Changing weather calls for more layering on the bed and choosing the quality stuff which keeps you warm all night but doesn’t wake you up feeling sweaty and moody.
The right comforter can add a special touch to your bedroom. Soft, luxurious, and fluffy, premium-quality comforters are frequently stuffed with a sumptuous feather and microfibre combination, making them a treat to cuddle up in during chilly times. Pick all-weather comforters if you plan to use one comforter all year round, during summers with air conditioning as well, or select a set of seasonal options and swap your blanket for a snuggly featherbed when the winter sets in.
Understand your body’s thermoregulation
An ideal sleep climate relies on maintaining a moderate relative humidity and temperature under the covers during varying weather conditions. Especially since we all release different amounts of heat from our bodies during the night, bedding is a very personally specific choice. To help create your perfect sleep haven, it is beneficial to understand your typical sleeping habits and preferences as well as how your bed- from the mattress beneath you, the choice of bed sheets to the bed comforter you pull over you- react to your body's natural temperature during the night.
Material and construction of the comforter
Whether your body tends to be hot or cold during sleep time, choose to go for breathable bedding materials to help support sound sleep. Livpure’s all-weather comforter provides unmatched comfort for every season. It is composed of 200 GSM fillings which keep you warm and cosy and is ideal for temperatures ranging from 12°C - 25°C, making it suitable for different weathers as well. It is made up of hypoallergenic material that prevents germs, microbes, or allergen from entering your bed space. Our unique box-stitching keeps internal filling intact and thereby prevents scattering and lumps from falling off regardless of how much you toss, twist, and turn. It is much more durable than other comforters. You can pretty much buy and forget about any problems, and just use it to keep you warm and happy.
Quilting or box stitching greatly influences thermal insulation of comforters, especially ours- look for those with internal dividers because the sewn-in tapes help prevent sudden cold air rushing through by keeping the down filling evenly distributed and enhances the fluffiness by creating separate the upper and lower layers in the same comforter.
Also, remember to look at the construction details to know if or what other fibres may be used. Avoid wool comforters that have synthetic liners that will interfere with the thermal regulation and make you too sweaty. Regardless of which fabric you choose, evaluate quality by checking for sturdy stitching, consistent coloration and a suitable smell, as some comforters may have a very synthetic smell which might not be comfortable in the long run.
Before you start choosing comforters, figure out what size bedding you need for your bed. If you sleep in a queen-sized bed, you might choose a queen-size comforter, you could, however, treat yourself to a king-sized comforter instead. If you go with a larger comforter, you get a little extra length and width to wrap yourself into a burrito during cooler months. The ideal blanket should be around 8 inches longer than your height. For anyone under 5’9”, a good standard size is 66" x 86". Or opt for an oversized bedspread if you or your partner are taller. At Livpure, you will find comforters in different sizes and amazing colours.
Always find out the best way to wash the comforter you are inclined towards buying before you purchase. If the label only recommends spot cleaning, consider choosing a different one as you want to be able to give it a good, deep cleaning when necessary and keep it squeaky clean. Some comforters are machine washable, but others are dry clean suitable only.
If you purchase one that's machine washable, make sure to clean it in a front-loading washing machine on a gentle cycle, with gentle detergent and fabric conditioner. Add an extra rinse to make sure you're removing all of the detergents. When drying, use dryer balls to help fluff. If the dryer seems stuffed full, take breaks throughout the drying cycle to shake out and fluff the comforter well.
Add a Couple of Cozy Pillows
The best thing to add to your bed with a comforter is a few cozy pillows. No bed is complete without at least one pair of high-quality pillows. All-weather comforters keep your body snug, but the right pillows prevent neck strain, relieve snoring, and help you attain a good night’s sleep. Pillows with a high-thread-count cotton cover prevent feather poke and feel luxurious against your skin. Livpure offers many variants of pillows for your different needs. For a really luxurious treat, try a cool gel memory foam pillow from Livpure.
While there are several considerations when choosing an all-weather comforter, warmth level is the most important to get right, as you do not want to be sweaty and moody in the middle of the night. The rest of the considerations – fill power, thread count, fabric type, construction and size - will help you float in on your ultimate down happiness and give you confidence in your decision.
