Down Comforter Size Guide

You may have noticed that, unlike mattress sizes, down comforter sizes can vary widely from manufacturer to manufacturer. Plumeria Bay® down comforters are sized to fit most of the quality duvet covers made today. Since it is the duvet cover that will determine how the duvet will fit your bed, this is an important point to keep in mind.


When laying on the bed, our regular sizes (Twin, Queen, King) will hang about 15" over the sides and foot of the bed (without a duvet cover). When one or two people get into the bed, the comforter will be pulled up to settle around the sleepers without hanging and dragging (causing a feeling of weight), over the side of the bed.

Our down comforters are available in a wide range of warmth levels.  The amount of down used for each warmth level will depend on the size of the comforter. This information (the amount of down used) can be seen on the product page(s) and will change as you select the different sizes and warmth levels.

The sizes above will cover most situations, but if you need a comforter sized just for you, we can do it! Please see our custom down comforters page for more information.


Fitting Your Comforter With the Right Size Duvet Cover

It's important to remember that the size of the duvet cover will determine how much "hang" you have over the sides of your bed.  A good rule of thumb when fitting a duvet cover with a duvet is to use a duvet cover that is the same size as your comforter or smaller (we prefer about 2" smaller, more or less).  A smaller duvet cover has the advantage of a nice snug fit, keeping the duvet from swimming around inside the duvet cover, while enhancing the loft of your duvet.  More tips on how to use a duvet cover.


You may want to keep in mind that "German" size and "super" size duvet covers, to fit our German size & Super King comforters, are not widely available.  We've got you covered though, as we also offer a nice selection of German Size duvet covers and Oversized King / Super King duvet covers from Schlossberg of Switzerland and St. Geneve.  We also offer custom size duvet covers and sheets. No project is too small, or too large!


Down comforters are very fluid and will fit into a duvet cover that is several inches smaller without "bunching" up, so if your current duvet cover is several inches smaller than the comforter you are considering, don't be afraid to give it a try.
