How to Choose the Right Duvet Cover Size for Your Bed

Duvets are designed for more than adding beauty and interest to a space. In fact, this bedding item serves a functional purpose by keeping the duvet insert clean and free of dust while protecting your skin from irritation. With that in mind, selecting the right duvet cover is crucial. At Pure Parima, we’re passionate about supplying customers with 100 percent Egyptian cotton duvet covers in a variety of styles and colors. Keep reading to learn more about duvet covers, including tips on choosing the right duvet cover size for your bed. 

Are Duvet Covers Supposed to Be Loose?

Duvet covers are like a pillowcase for your duvet. And just as pillowcases should fit snugly on the pillow, a duvet cover should be tight against the duvet insert. If your duvet cover is too loose, you will likely find that the insert shifts around inside it while you sleep. As a result, you may find yourself struggling to stay warm on chilly nights. 

Because the best duvet covers are tight-fitting, it can be challenging to put them on a duvet insert. Individuals who live alone may find it especially difficult when working with queen or king-sized bedding. However, once you learn the tricks, placing a duvet insert in a cover is relatively easy. 

Are Duvet Covers Hard to Put on?

Putting a duvet cover on a duvet doesn’t have to be hard. Follow these tips to make the bed-making process less of a hassle:

  1. Start by laying your duvet insert flat atop the fitted sheet on the bed. 
  2. Next, turn your Egyptian cotton duvet cover inside out and put your hands inside to find the top corners. 
  3. Holding a duvet corner in each hand, take hold of the top two corners of the duvet insert.
  4. Without letting go of the corners, flip the duvet cover so it lies over the insert, right side out. Then shake the insert so it falls down into the cover. The goal is for the duvet cover to envelope most of the insert. 
  5. Finally, pull the duvet cover down until you can place the bottom corners of the insert into the bottom corners of the cover. Once the insert is fully covered, you can button or zip the duvet cover.

Note that Pure Parima’s duvet inserts have loops. As a result, they can be easily connected to the ties on duvet covers. This feature helps prevent your duvet from slipping inside the cover while you sleep. See it in action here on our TikTok page!

Should a Duvet Cover Be Bigger Than the Insert?

In general, duvet covers are slightly larger than the inserts that go inside them. You can expect your cover to be about two inches bigger than the insert. However, customers that prefer a snugger bedding fit may opt to buy a duvet insert that’s bigger than the cover by an inch or so.
