Assisted Living: Is It Odd to Mismatch Bedding Sizes For Comforters?

Assisted Living: Mismatching Duvet and Comforter Sizes

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member Morgan Ashley Parker from the Assisted Living group:

In the past, I've used a full/queen duvet cover over a full/queen comforter but I've never been pleased about the coverage on my queen-sized bed, which is topped with a featherbed making it even higher/wider, and how it fits in the cover (not poofy). I recently purchased a king-sized down comforter and I have shoved it inside my old full/queen cover — it fits fine, on the fuller side which I like. Since I've finally settled on the perfect duvet cover, I can't decide if it would be too big if I then bought a king-sized duvet cover. I checked the dimensions of the covers I covet and the sizing doesn't look that far off:

  • Full/Queen: 88"l x 92"w.
  • King: 92"l x 108"w.

Do you think it's better to just buy the full/queen cover and stuff the duvet in or buy the king? Then I could always tuck it in like this picture (which is not the duvet I want, just something I spotted)? I can't imagine I'm the only neurotic bedding person out there so please help!

Morgan, I've mismatched sizes in the past and it looks totally OK — so long as you don't go more than one size up, it won't even be noticeable. Anyone else have any comments or suggestions for Morgan? Please share them below.
