We have a king bed, superking duvet. Problem is I can't get reasonably priced decent quality duvet covers. They are all £50+ or bobble within weeks. I've tried online, tk maxx but they've all been rubbish.
Because of this I'm considering downsizing so we can make use of supermarket offers and have more choices at prices we can afford.
Anyone else done this? Will I regret it? Is there really that much difference between the two sizes?
We have a super king bed (high boxspring) with a king size duvet! I don't like it when the duvet hangs really far down, however neither of us are duvet hoggers so it works.
I always buy from the White Company sale, with around 40-60% off. Sign up for their newsletter and you'll be alerted to the sales. I know they are still expensive but they will last and work out cheaper than replacing poorer quality ones regularly.
I got some supposedly 1000 thread count superking bedding sets on eBay, they are fab quality and really soft and have washed well. I don't buy that they are actually 1000 thread count but they are thick and good quality. It was £58 for a fitted sheet, duvet cover and two pillowcases.
Good quality reduced price bedding here if you don't mind past season designs. I also like Joules bedding (in the Sales) as it is very good quality 100% cotton that does not bobble. My pet hate is the buttons/poopers coming off after the first wash and the Jules buttons really stay put.
Stick to pure cotton and you can wash them as hot as you like and they won’t bobble. Spend a bit extra for a high thread count and they’ll last forever. I use (and hot-wash) pillowcases from the 1940s and 50s that belonged to my great-grandmother!
My now DH bought some queen size covers & duvet for his standard double before we lived together because he wanted a bigger duvet and didn't know queen was bigger than king . We still have them as potential spares but I hate the extra faff washing and drying, which is a mystery of life how they are SO much bigger than the king size beds we have, so don't tend to use them. Anyway, they came from Amazon and are perfectly fine quality if you want that size. I have no probs with enough KS duvet on a KS bed.
