Bedding Set / March 30, 2017 / Pierrette Segal
Before you even start looking at bedding you should know what size bed you have and even take the measurements of the mattress as well. Unless you like to keep going back to the store and returning items then you want to be prepared the first time around and know the size of the bed. When you measure the mattress make sure to measure the length depth and width especially if you have a pillow top mattress.
Luxury bedding sets will vary greatly when it comes to pillow covers. Often you will see pillow covers referred to as shams or even pillow cases. They`re all the same thing. Most luxury and normal bedding sets generally have as many normal pillow covers as are appropriate for the size of the bed that the luxury bed linens are supposed to cover. In addition they`ll often have a rather arbitrary number of coverings for other random cushions such as throw pillows and neck pillows. If you can match the contents to your actual cushions then that`s great but don`t count on it.
The people who have them will talk about the duvet a very common luxury bed linen as if everyone has one. Since that`s not the case it should be mentioned that the duvet basically replaces comforter and sheets. Because of this don`t pay too much attention to how many pieces come in a particular set. The contents themselves are far more important than if there`s seven eight or five pieces. Also be aware that sets that come with duvets are often flatter and lighter than the cheaper ones with comforters since the duvet itself replaces both and the down that it`s made of is quite thin but effective. Of course other extras will also affect the total package.
