Choosing Your Down Duvet Size

Picking the right duvet size is the simplest step in choosing your new down duvet. Duvet sizes correspond to bed sizes, so simply select a duvet which matches your bed. If you’re unsure what size bed you have, take a look at the table below.

An undersized down duvet is a recipe for cold feet and exposed arms, but go too big and you might spend your nights feeling smothered. Better to be wrapped up comfortably in a duvet perfectly tailored to you. If you like the size of your current duvet, then just take a look at the tag and you will see which size you need.

Standard Sizes

Here’s a breakdown of down duvet sizes corresponding to standard bed types:

Size Imperial (inches) Metric (cm)
Single 54 x 79 135 x 200
Double 79 x 79 200 x 200
King 91 x 87 230 x 220
Super King 102 x 87 260 x 220
Emperor 114 x 92 290 x 235

For a double bed, we recommend a down duvet that covers the entire width of your mattress, plus a few additional centimetres for good measure. You should take into consideration the width of your bed and also whether or not the duvet will be used by more than one person – just to make sure you are both well covered at night! If you have any doubts about the right duvet size, we recommend you opt for one that’s a little larger than what you think you need.

Single or double duvet Make sure if you are sharing a duvet that you allow enough width.

Measuring Bed Dimensions

Since beds come in many different shapes and sizes, we recommend that you manually measure your bed before selecting your ideal duvet. Simply take a tape measure and note the length and width of the mattress.

Please note that if your mattress measures 200cm by 200cm and you order a duvet of this size, then it will fit the mattress precisely without draping over the sides of the bed. As such, if your dream duvet has extra room on the sides, then you will need to order a duvet which is slightly larger than your mattress.

Made to Measure

All of our duvets can be made to order, so feel free to place an order according to your personal specifications. There are no extra costs associated with a bespoke duvet, though it may take a little bit longer to manufacture. All duvets from the Dickenbergh Manufaktur Collection and the Falkenreck Collection are made to order, so you need not worry about extra delivery time with these brands.
