5-star luxury at a Motel 6 price: This all-season queen comforter is down to $22

I might make a living writing about all things home, but I’ve been embarrassingly slow to change my bedding. So a few months ago, after years of sleeping under a mediocre blanket, I decided to invest in a new comforter. And not just any comforter — the wildly popular Bedsure Comforter, which was recommended to me by my sister. Seeing as she’s essentially the real-life version of the Princess and the Pea (aka the fussiest sleeper I’ve ever met), I ordered it. The low price didn’t hurt, either — and it happens to be back on sale at Amazon. Keep scrolling for my review.

(Psst: Check out this story about how I created the comfy bed of my dreams for even more of my bedding faves.)

Amazon

This cushy comforter has eight loops on its sides, meaning it can double as a duvet insert. Gotta love a twofer!

Why is it a good deal? 💰

According to our trackers, the queen-size comforter in classic white is down to just about as low as it’s ever been — nearly 50% off. Plus, it has tens of thousands of five-star ratings to back it up (in addition to mine), so if you’re even thinking about buying it, now would be a smart time. Note: Prices vary depending on color and size (you’ll pay just $22 for the queen comforter in classic white).

Why do I need this? 🤔

Before I get into my personal thoughts on the Bedsure Comforter, let’s chat about the basics. It’s designed to be an all-season blanket and has a soft poly microfiber shell with down alternative filling. It smartly has a box-stitch construction, which helps keep the filling evenly distributed. You want that cloud-like feeling all around!

Because this comforter comes with loops attached to its sides, you can use it as a duvet insert. And to make things really convenient, it’s machine-washable and dryer-friendly. I purchased the white queen-size comforter, but it’s also available in many other colors, and sizes twin through California king.

Upon unboxing the Bedsure Comforter, I saw that it was somewhat compressed (as expected). I followed the instructions, which said to fluff it up by hand and let it expand for a day or two. By nighttime, it had puffed up nicely and felt super-soft to the touch. So far, so good.

I’d recently gotten a new duvet cover, so I decided to place it in there to start. Aside from the usual annoyances that come with setting up all duvets, I was happy with the result; the loops aligned with the snaps in the cover, and I didn’t notice any bunching once everything was inside.

Once that was done, it was time for the sleep test. I got into bed, pulled the blanket over me and immediately felt a level of comfort I’d never felt while sleeping at home. While it’s definitely not as heavy as a weighted blanket, I did feel a similar “hugging” sensation that put me at ease and made me want to doze right off — which I did.

I tend to sleep hot, and it’s not unusual for me to wake up in the middle of the night wanting to kick all sheets and blankets off my body. Thankfully, the Bedsure Comforter kept me just toasty enough without overheating. I’ve been using it for over six months now, and I can’t believe the difference it’s made in my sleep. I feel like I’m getting tucked into a hotel bed every night, and even after washing the comforter, it’s maintained its marshmallow-like feel so far.

Now that it’s gotten really hot, I’ve taken it out of the duvet cover and use it on its own. That said, it does have a big blue label on one of its corners, which I don’t love from an aesthetic standpoint. (I’m sure it’s easy enough to remove.) Another note: According to the cleaning instructions, you’re supposed to use a front-loading washer and dryer. My washing machine is a top-loader, and I took a chance. I’m happy to report that there have been no issues, but do this at your own risk!

What reviewers say 💬

I’m not alone in my obsession with the Bedsure Comforter. Over 55,000 Amazon customers have given it a perfect five-star rating.

Pros 👍

“Best sleep in a long time,” wrote one impressed buyer. “Not too thick, not too light. Didn’t wake up feeling too hot, either. I slept so well, I slept through my alarm and ended up late for my class. … Kept the fluffiness after the first wash too, like a cloud! 10/10 would be late for class again.”

“I have been searching for a lightweight comforter that will keep me warm, but not too warm for what feels like forever,” shared another satisfied sleeper. “My problem is how to prevent a cascade of hot flashes/night sweats. … Well, I found the solution. … I tried it on without putting a duvet cover over it, it worked beautifully. … Last night, I inserted [it] into a duvet cover, thinking that extra half a degree would probably push me into the usual cycle, but to my astonishment and delight, it didn’t. … Women going through menopause: Search no further. This comforter is the answer.”

“This one is 10/10!” exclaimed a third. “It’s lightweight but warm … but not too warm … it’s perfect! Just the right amount of fluff so it looks luxe, but you won’t sink into it and disappear ’til next Wednesday.”

Cons 👎

“The only thing I wish it had was a tag to say side/top or bottom,” admitted a generally happy customer. “That would make it easier to make the bed!” That said, they added, “I’m loving the luxurious feel.”

“Looks great in my duvet!” exclaimed a final fan. “I was worried it wouldn’t be thick or warm enough, but it definitely is. … The only thing I could ask for on this is to add a few more of the ties. The duvet I purchased has lots of ties and I could see how it helps prevent it from slipping. But I personally haven’t had any problems with it whatsoever.” (For the record, I haven’t experienced any slipping, either.)

Another cult-favorite Amazon bedding find I adore? The No. 1 bestselling Beckham Hotel Collection Bed Pillows.

Amazon

After having heard nothing but raves about these pillows for years, I finally bought a pair to see what all the hype was about. Fair warning: They come vacuum-sealed, so when you first see them, you’ll think, There’s no way these will be comfortable. But give ’em a few hours, and they fluff up beautifully. I was impressed by how soft yet supportive they feel and, thanks to their breathable construction, I didn’t wake up with sweaty hair. Now I want to replace every pillow in my house with these.
