Online shopping is both a blessing and a curse. Simply clicking "add to cart" and waiting for a package to arrive is a modern luxury; however, a digital shopping spree also involves the difficult task of picking one item from seemingly endless options. Plus, something as personal as choosing the bedding you'll unwind in night after night shouldn't be done so blindly over a screen. However, since we prefer to shop from the comfort of our couch, the only way to ensure a return isn't in your future is to sift through thousands of reviews from people who've received and tested the product you're thinking of purchasing.
Since nobody has the time to vet hundreds of pages of reviews (even if it means doing so from bed, in your pajamas), we took the liberty of scouring through thousands of Amazon reviews for you. Here, a simple list of the 10 best comforters available on the online retailer. Okay, now you can click "add to cart."
This alternative down comforter is meant to keep you cozy throughout all four seasons. It's made with soft material and designed with box-style stitching for a clean, classic look. Plus, it's machine washable for easy maintenance. Of the nearly 3,000 reviews the comforter has garnered on Amazon, the majority are overwhelmingly positive. Users applaud it for being fluffy but not too hot for summer, nor too thin for the winter.
The recipient of an "Amazon's Choice" banner, this comforter is an affordable option made of 100 percent polyester with a microfiber shell. It's far cheaper than most down comforters and is less likely to trigger allergies than down-feather options.
With a medium-weight filling, this comforter is ideal for year-round temperatures. It's a hypoallergenic choice made of breathable material. According to customer reviews, it scores high on softness, comfort, durability, and how easy it is to clean.
This comforter from Buffy comes in at a higher price point, but according to the reviews, it's well worth the cost. Eucalyptus fibers allow for 10 times less water to be used during production, which is better for the planet, but it also gives the comforter its light and fluffy weight. Win-win! It's also made of 100 percent recycled BPA-free bottles so you can feel good about your purchase and its effect on the environment.
