I’m going to let you in on the most amazing bedding hack today: put a king duvet insert in a queen duvet cover.
For years, I’ve had a queen duvet cover with a queen duvet insert. And, for years, I’ve lamented all the extra fabric that hangs off the sides and the ends of my bed. Every morning, I’d aggressively fluff my duvet, only to have the insert slip and slide around, even when tied neatly in place to the inside corners of the cover. Whenever I’d stay in a hotel I’d wonder, “how on earth do they keep these duvets so perfectly fluffed and full?!”
Then, a few weeks ago, I thought I’d google how long duvet inserts are supposed to last. Y’all…they don’t last forever.
Deep breaths. I know, I was shocked, too. Especially since I’d had my insert for over 13 years…and, before that, it was my roommate’s. So, I promptly went online and ordered a new one.
Fluffy Bedding Hack: King Duvet Insert in a Queen Duvet Cover
But, as I placed my order, I decided to try my hand at a fluffy bedding hack I’d come across years before: going one size up with your duvet insert so that it perfectly fills out your duvet cover. I looked at reviews for probably 50+ duvet inserts online before finally settling on this Martha Stewart King Goose Down Duvet from Target for just $90. I figured best to go with a budget-friendly option out the gate and see how it works.
Well, this hack is a winner. Putting a king duvet insert in our queen duvet cover is a game-changer. Our duvet cover is filled out end to end, without being over-filled. It fits like a glove. And, it’s super, super fluffy. Adam was a bit concerned that it might get too hot or heavy, so we opted for an all-season weight, and it’s perfect. It’s a heavenly cloud of fluff at night — without feeling stifling.
So, yeah, that’s it. That’s the hack. Just buy a size up next time you’re replacing your duvet insert. Trust me, you’ll never go back.
