The 5 Softest Down Comforters

Share

It's the softest material around and it makes for a truly luxurious sleeping experience. If you've never slept on one of the softest down comforters, you're in for a treat: Prepare to feel like you're resting on a cloud every night of the week.

Traditional down comforters are made from duck and geese feathers. Their softness depends on their fill power, which is a fancy way of saying how much down per ounce is added to the comforter. If you can find a down comforter designed with box stitching, all the better — this will prevent the filling from shifting and will provide better insulation to keep you warm all night long.

When talking about down comforters, it's impossible not to bring up the one potential problem with them. If you suffer from allergies, they may not be your best choice. That doesn't mean that you, too, can't sleep on the softest comforters for allergies imaginable — down alternative comforters are made from cotton, polyester microfiber, and rayon and are hypoallergenic and allergy free. These comforters also tend to be less expensive than down and can be cleaned in the washing machine.

These down comforters have racked up plenty of glowing reviews on Amazon because they're unbelievably soft, lightweight, warm, and made from quality materials. Snag one and make your good night's sleep even more restful.
