We’ve read more than enough studies and articles to know that most of us suck at sleep. To be fair, we have a lot working against us. Besides navigating a global health pandemic, there’s burnout from work and doomscrolling, the constant interruption of phone and computer screens (hello, blue light!), and of course, the normal stressors we frequently encounter, like dating woes and friendship drama, to name just a couple. Still, all hope isn’t lost. More often than not, the solution to a lot of our everyday conundrums is something as simple as eight hours of shut-eye. However, it’s not as simple as getting into bed and counting sheep. There are a number of things that factor into a successful sleep routine, including the best comforter for your specific needs.
For example, if your body temperature tends to run high at night, a heavy down comforter made with warming fabric like wool will probably leave you sweaty and wide awake. On the other hand, if you’re someone who sleeps in long sleeves and socks, that could be just what you need to snore instead of shiver. If you have allergies, you already know how challenging it can be to find a comforter that checks all of the boxes and just so happens to be hypoallergenic too. Lucky for you, we’ve been burning the midnight oil to find the all-around best comforters for every kind of sleeper.

Sunday Citizen Snug Comforter
BEST FOR: If you’re looking for a comforter to use year-round, don’t sleep on the Sunday Citizen Snug Comforter. With microfiber on one side and viscose from bamboo on the other, you’ll be obsessed with the silky-soft texture against your skin and always feel cozy—not sweaty.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW: The fabric is hypoallergenic and good for the environment—the filling in each comforter is made of 50 recycled bottles.
Quince All-Season Premium Down Alternative Comforter
BEST FOR: If the name didn’t already give it away, this is also an ideal option for any time of year thanks to the lightweight microfiber filling and soft cotton sateen fabric. The corner loops also help keep the comforter’s original shape, so it'll take less time to make your bed each day.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW: The comforter filling is hypoallergenic, and the baffle box construction adds a stylish touc reminiscent of the fancy comforters you find in luxe hotels.
AmazonBasics Down Alternative Bed Comforter
BEST FOR: We get it—down comforters and duvet inserts aren’t always the most wallet-friendly. Thankfully, Amazon’s affordable comforter insert is versatile enough for all seasons and doesn’t sacrifice quality for price.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW: The box stitching keeps the comforter filling from shifting around and bunching in one spot.
Cozy Earth Comforters
BEST FOR: If Oprah loves it, then you know it’s legit. The buttery-soft comforter she describes as the “softest EVER” costs a pretty penny, but if the reviews raving about the moisture-wicking fabric are any indication, this is a must-have for hot sleepers.
USER REVIEW: “I got this in hopes I wouldn’t wake up drenched in sweat in the middle of the night throwing the covers off of me, and it worked! I’m on Zoloft and a common side effect is night sweats, so I was worried this duvet might not help but it did! It’s super soft, comes with a very nice bag that can be used for traveling, and is warm enough but not too warm. It’s the kind of warm where you can pop one foot out and cool off. If you’re hesitant to splurge (well at least for me, this was a splurge) I say do it! A night of comfortable sleep is priceless, and this duvet definitely seems it’s made to last years.”
Buffy Cloud Comforter
BEST FOR: We’d be surprised if you haven’t already seen this Insta-famous comforter on your social media feeds. Buffy’s Cloud Comforter is renowned for its moisture-wicking and temperature-regulating fabric and ethical, eco-conscious production. Plus, the price isn’t too shabby either.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW: This comforter’s eucalyptus fiber is resistant to dust, mites, and mold, making it an affordable option for allergy-prone sleepers.
Parachute Down Duvet Insert
BEST FOR: Don’t underestimate the power of fluff. For some sleepers, a voluminous, warm comforter is the must-have for good sleep, and Parachute’s Down Duvet Insert is just that. The filling is luxe European white down, a superior choice for turning up the heat, and the top fabric is a luxurious sateen.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW: Double-stitched seaming ensures that the filling doesn’t move and can maintain its fluffy shape.
Bedsure All Season Quilted Down Alternative Comforter
BEST FOR: If you’re a minimalist who wants a duvet that can be thrown into the washing machine without losing its quality, you’ll love the versatility of Bedsure’s quilted comforter. It comes in a variety of colors if you don’t want to use a duvet insert, has classic box-stitching to prevent clumping, and can be washed on a gentle cold cycle.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW: The largest option, California King, is barely over $50, making this budget-friendly too.
Utopia Bedding Comforter Duvet Insert
BEST FOR: Ranked as one of the best comforters on Amazon, this versatile option works as a comforter on its own or as a duvet insert. The microfiber filling expands to a light and fluffy density, complementing the silky fabric that looks as luxurious as it feels. If you tend to get chilly at night, reviewers talk most about the warm, non-sweaty feel.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW: You can choose from a variety of colors if you’re planning to skip the duvet cover.
Brooklinen Down Comforter
BEST FOR: Also known as “the Goldilocks of comforters,” Brooklinen’s Down Comforter is truly an all-season option but especially satisfying for hot sleepers. The lightweight fabric is also hypoallergenic and treated with antimicrobials so you don’t have to worry about sneezing in the middle of the night.

USER REVIEW: “I wanted the feeling of down without the high cost and maintenance issues. I searched for several months for my new comforter and was a bit apprehensive about purchasing this because of the low price. But, after using this for the past 12 months, I can say without hesitation that for thirty bucks, this is an incredible deal! It's extremely fluffy, very large, and very warm yet breathable.”
