How To Keep Your Down Comforter From Bunching Inside Its Duvet Cover
Help! My Comforter Keeps Bunching And Sliding To One Corner
This is a problem that used to drive me crazy.
Every morning I would wake up with my comforter bunched up on one side inside the duvet cover. The other side of the duvet cover would just be two thin sheets with nothing in between.
Of course my boyfriend would be the one with the comforter while I ended up with nothing but a duvet cover!
This problem is not caused by a large duvet cover.
Nor is it caused by too much movement.
The bunching just happens naturally unless you take some very simple steps to stop the comforter from moving around.
If you’re sick of having to climb inside your duvet cover to fetch your bunched up comforter, keep reading.
Here are 3 easy ways to keep your comforter smooth and in place inside any type of comforter cover.
- Use large safety pins to pin the corners of the comforter to the cover. The pins end up covered by the comforter anyways and you’ll never feel them. If the thought of getting poked scares you, somebody already thought of the solution! Somebody actually makes comforter clips that solve this very problem. All you need is a 4 pack of clips (1 clip per corner). Surprisingly these do not fall off even after months of use.
- Some covers have ties inside the corners like the ones below. You can then tie the corners of your comforter to the cover.
- If you do not have any ties inside, it’s very easy to add some to your duvet cover. All you need are some long ribbons or twill tape plus a needle and thread. Sew one piece of ribbon to the insides of each corner of your cover. A couple stitches through the middle of the ribbon is all you need to keep the strip in place. Just make sure the two ends of your new comforter ties are long enough to wrap around your comforter.
