This Editor-Favorite Comforter Is Like “Sleeping in a Cloud”—and Just $25 Right Now
The weather is nice and chilly, which means you’re probably on the hunt for heavier bedding. That’s right: It’s time for duvets, especially of the down or down alternative variety. If you’re in the market for a new comforter now that January is here, one of our Best List favorites is almost 80 percent off right now: The Martha Stewart Essentials Down Alternative Comforter.
Usually priced at $120, the comforter is currently $24.99 during Macy’s One Day Sale and is perfect to use as a duvet insert or on its own. Besides white, it’s also available in reversible navy, burgundy, and gray combinations. Though minimalist in styling, the available solid colors provide a canvas for accenting with throw blankets and pillows to create a bedding landscape that is both cozy and inviting.
“Lying under it feels like being enveloped in a plush cloud that’s always cool to the touch,” said our Commerce Editor, Sholeen Damawarla, who tested the comforter for herself. “On the heat spectrum, I never feel like I’m drowning under layers of thick fabric, while the puffy baffle-box construction keeps my husband cozy and warm. Even better? It’s pretty lightweight for a duvet but still provides warmth, thanks to the hypoallergenic polyester fiberfill.”
The comforter, which is ideal for year-round use, is also OEKO-TEX certified, meaning it’s free of harmful chemicals. “My skin is SUPER sensitive to certain materials and this blanket is like silk to my skin—even before it’s washed 20 times!!” said a Macy’s customer, who bought two for her family but wishes she had bought more. “It’s the perfect weight, washes up great, and my family fights over the ‘soft blanket.'”
This customer review pretty much says it all about the affordable comforter: “Soft, smooth feel, and light enough to keep me from overheating yet heavy enough to keep me warm. Perfect.” All in all, a major steal, but you’ll need to act quickly: The sale ends on Jan. 10.
