I've been putting off upgrading my comforter for a while, and it's time (aka payday). It's all bunched up and lame.
Does anyone have recommendations for in-store or online purchases? My last one was a discounted $100 Nautica from Bed, Bath & Beyond. I'm open to spending around that again, though I'd love to spend less...

I'm browsing the internets but I don't know what to trust and want something pretty warm, and so many have shitty reviews.
Any recs for an IKEA comforter?
I'd kinda love something velour-like, but I don't even know where to start on that.

What do you have? Recs?

thanks!

I can't believe the PPK failed me.

Instead, my friend convinced me to buy one of these: http://www.snugglyminkblankets.com/ (which is NOT actual mink, it's faux).

Personally I would go with this one:

I just saw this! I was at Ikea yesterday, and I noted they had a medium-warm synthetic comforter for $50 (you'd have to buy a cover separately, though - I bought one yesterday for $10 that's super cute, however).

oh, thanks guys! I'm glad the ppk wasn't entirely anti-comforter.

papaya - I was SO CLOSE to buying this one: http://www.snugglyminkblankets.com/prod ... anket.html


jordan - yeah, I didn't even know about this comforter cover thing until recently, and apparently I'm supposed to grow up and buy a duvet? it's overwhelming.

Oh, ha! I thought they were the same thing! Perhaps it's the cold climate I'm from, but I grew up with just duvets and quiltcovers. They're more of a pain to launder, but it's nice to be able to change 'em up. I do recommend Ikea. They always have sales on quiltcovers for $10 or less.

yeah! ikea has some super warm synthetic comforters. i like having a duvet because it's easy to wash and it's fun to put it back on because you sort of have to get inside your blanket to get the corners right.

I have this one from The Company Store in medium warmth and I love it:

http://www.thecompanystore.com/La-Cross ... lternative

My old comforter was an ancient company store down comforter my parents bought me when I stopped sleeping in a crib; it lasted me constant sleeps from then through college, and I would still be using it if I hadn't graduated to a full-sized bed. I seriously don't think I'd ever get another brand.

I need a new one too. Mine is all lumpy. And doesn't have gothic fairies on it http://www.snugglyminkblankets.com/prod ... anket.html

I think I'll hit up Ikea for a new one if I ever get a ride over there.
