  • a comforter is by far easier to care for.

  • Duvet! They are natural, and you can wash the duvet cover frequent;y.

  • Duvet's are a pain in the butt....the covers don't always stay on them correctly.

  • I love my duvet and cover because I can remove the cover to wash, and it washes as easily as sheets instead of taking up tons of room in the dryer and being flipped over and over to get it to dry. I also like that I can put a down comforter or down alternative insert into the cover instead of just the heavy fluffy stuff they fill regular comforters with.

  • The comforter in the duvet cover always slides down on me. But I would probably get the duvet cover because they are easier to wash when needed.

  • I like both but if I had to choose I would go for the comforter bc I also agree with twinsplus2more.

  • I never could keep the duvet cover in place. I also think they cost more, so then I can't change as often.

  • My duvet cover has little ties at the four corners that keeps the insert in place.

  • I prefer comferters

  • I love my duvet. I've got four different sets of covers, so I can swap them out whenever I want a change. I haven't had trouble with the duvet shifting around inside the cover, either.
