What size for a bed comforter?
The dimensions of a bed comforter are defined by several criteria: the dimensions of the mattress of course, the number of sleepers – 1 or 2 -, their body size and whether they are restlessly sleepy.

The heat level of a bed comforter
The level of warmth of a duvet is generally indicated on a scale of 1 to 4 or even 5 or 6 according to the manufacturers. The choice of a comforter depends on your sensitivity to cold and the temperature in the bedroom. If the room is heated to a temperature over 22 ° C, opt for a light duvet. For a room heated to a temperature between 18 and 22 ° C, the temperate duvet is ideal. If the room temperature is cool and below 18 ° C, then the very warm duvet should be favored.
Finally, the 4-season duvet is ideal for all those who are more or less sensitive to cold and the slight frost of autumn. It is composed of two duvets, one light and one thicker, joined together by pressures. This provides a real quilt for mid-season and winter and, separate from the second, a lighter quilt for summer. This type of duvet is the perfect alternative for not having to buy several duvets depending on the season.
