I really like the product. I would highly recommend this product to others. I look forward to the end of the day when it is time to rest my aching body on the wounderful feather bed! It is also very insulating and you need less covers.

Lots of feathers! We have been sleeping so well since using this product and waking up without back aches! Awesome! The covering looks nice and is smooth and soft for sleeping. The extra thread count makes a difference in my estimation.All in all the best!

The quality of the Feather bed was excellent, it was comfortable. The reason that I purchased this was because I slep on one at a well known hotel and I wanted to have the same comfort. It was great for the second night, but then it became flat after that, but was still comfortable. The key to having a feather bed is that you really need to fluff after two night sleep. Too much work, but I am glad I purchased this one instead of the one from the known hotel chain. Same quality for 1/3 the price. The hotel's was better, becasue they have house keeping change the sheets and fluff the feather bed box each day. It was still work the cost, but too much work.

Overall the feather bed has increased my sleep comfort considerably. It especially reduces pressure points, which has helped me from waking in the night with arthritic pain. However, it easily gets out of shape, flattens in the middle and bulges at the corners. It requires DAILY fluffing to be at its best, which is a hassle when making the bed. If it had more baffles or compartments, perhaps it would retain its shape better. The cover that came with it is okay, but not a high thread count or silky/satin finish.

My husband and I have been dedicated fans of feather beds for years, and this one has lived up to its promises. Unlike some other feather beds we've purchased in the past, this one is large enough to cover the entire mattress, with some to spare, and has ample loft. We're totally happy with this feather bed!

We wanted to recreate the cloud-like comfort we'd had at a 5 diamond hotel and this down topper is exactly what we were looking for! The baffle box design works very well as we have not had a problem with the feathers migrating to the edges or the middle. There is also a pillow top that protects us from the feather ends sticking out. Great product! My kids want them now!

The goose down top feather bed arrived in a timely manner and in very good condition. However, within one week the topper began to bunch in the middle. I can daily fluff the bunching out to a minimum, but this is not satisfactory to me. My first choice in the future will be a memory foam mattress topper.

The bed is comfortable, soft enough to pillow but firm enough that the down doesn't all shift out from under you. My only complaint would be that the fabric could be dense enough to not allow the feathers to stick through and poke you

I was very pleased with this product. It was fluffy and full. It does , however,mat down when you sleep on it, but I think any feather bed would do this. It adds more warmth on cold nights. This was well worth the cost, which was modest compared to other feather beds.

I love it! It is my first goose down product and I sleep like I did......... before the rooster went blind. It is warm and very comfortable. I'm purchasing the same one for my daughter for her birthday. It is a challenge keeping her out of it now. Fair pricing.

This is my third featherbed, getting better with each one. This will be my last one, until this one wears out. It is really soft and warm, I live in California and don't need anything other than a light summer blanket with this featherbed. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for quality, warmth and a bargin.

This down top feather bed is absolutely amazing. It is very comfortable,( no poking feathers) lofty, supportive and no smell at all. It also included a nice protective cover, which I would have had to purchase seperately at a greater cost. My husband and I love it. I couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience. Shipping was fast, and very reasonable. Thanks overstock.

I absolutely love my new featherbed. Recently had surgery and was worried about having to be bedridden for a week. Not with my featherbed. Had no hip pains from lying on my sides too long. Also, the down featherbed did not have an odor like some do. Would highly recommend.......

I was so suprised when my feather bed arrived!! It is so compressed that I figured it would be substandard because the price of the bed was at such a low price. After my husband & I unwraped it, laid it across our bed, we were shocked at how quickly it expanded! This feather bed is HUGE!!!! We could not be happier with our purchase. I have had friends purchase the same size & weight of this same type feather bed & they paid between $400.00 to over $500.00. I would advise anyone intending to purchase a nice, heavy, down-feather bed to consider this a very safe purchase!! You will fall in love with this down feather bed!!!

Goes flat very quickly. I have a tendency of sleeping in the middle of the bed & now it looks like I sleep in a valley. Need to "fluff" every 2nd day or so. Better get a thicker featherbed. Will use it for my air bed when guests come over.
Two major considerations when purchasing a down comforter are content and construction. The Federal Trade Commission has standards set that specify labeling procedures for products that contain down. If the label of a down comforter reads 100 percent down, the comforter must contain down feathers exclusively. The same is true if the label reads pure down or all down. Most down comforters are made with goose down, but some may include down feathers from other species of fowl. Look below to learn how to buy a down comforter.
Down featherbeds provide an additional layer of comfort between you and your mattress. If your bed produces more aches and pains than dreams, a featherbed is a good solution. Featherbeds should last for many years, depending on the quality of the feathers, properties of the cover and use. This article should help you get a grasp on how to clean down featherbeds.
Warm and incredibly soft, down comforters are the height of luxurious bedding. Like all other bedding, down comforters can range from inexpensive to costly. The proof is in the filling. Inexpensive down comforters are filled with a combination of down and polyester or down and feathers. The best down comforters, which are usually also the most expensive, are full of pure, thick down. Take a look below to learn the best fills for down comforters. Hungarian goose down: Hungarian goose down is considered the most luxurious type of down. These extreme cold-weather birds have very thick, almost odorless tufts of down at the base of their feathers. This heavy, long-lasting down is most often used in comforters with a fill rating of 800, which means they can keep a person warm even in cold conditions. Eiderdown: Eiderdown is harvested by hand from the abandoned nests of Eider ducks, which pluck the down from their own backs and use it to cover their eggs. Eider ducks live in cold climates, so their down is thick and heavy. It is used in high-quality comforters with a fill rating of between 700 and 800. Eider duck down is the only type of duck down used in high-quality comforters. All other duck down is usually considered too smelly (and some duck down has tiny barbs) and is used in much less expensive comforters. Grey and white goose down: Grey goose down is used in dark comforters due it its grey color, but it is the same as white goose down in all other ways. Grey and white goose down, which is usually harvested from European or Chinese geese, is the most popular type of down used in middle-price-range pure down comforters. These comforters usually have a fill rating of 600 and above. Hypodown: Hypodown is a mixture of white goose down and milkweed. This all-natural filling is hypoallergenic and much more durable than pure down comforters. While pure down is still considered to be the preferable fill for comforters by most people, hypodown is gaining popularity with consumers who want a longer lasting product without synthetic fills.

Depending on the fill, a down comforter can function as a cold weather staple or a comfortable lightweight cover. Fill refers to the different grade of goose down feather used in down bedding. The higher the fill number, the larger the down clusters and warmth factor. There are several factors to be considered when choosing a down comforter, so keep reading for some useful tips on how to pick the right fill for down comforters.
Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, down comforters offer the ultimate in comfort and insulation.

Take a look at this article to learn how to set up a featherbed.
Throw pillows covered in delicate fabrics, such as wool or silk, will have to be dry-cleaned, as will throw pillows stuffed with down or feathers. Foam-filled throw pillows with cotton covers or other washable materials, however, can be washed -- some even by machine. Nevertheless, even if a pillow appears washable, always consult the washing instruction label before attempting to wash a throw pillow -- or you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you remove the pillow from the washing machine.
Having the right pillow can help induce sleep and extend a good night's rest. Some people, whether because of allergies or personal preference, avoid traditional feather and down pillows in favor of modern ecologically-friendly and animal-friendly alternative pillows. From professional-grade buckwheat to memory foam, the top 5 alternative pillows welcome tired heads with the best in quality and comfort.

After all, bed linens are the part of the bed that touches your skin. Look below to learn how to choose quality bed linens.
Out of all the bedding made, quilts may be the most diverse. Quilts are produced in all kinds of colors, patterns, sizes, styles and types. If you're looking for a quilt but don't know where to start, take a look at the popular types of quilts below to learn more about this beautiful kind of bedding. Amish quilts: These beautiful quilts reflect the Amish way of living and feature solid colors, deep hues, geometric patterns and very little embellishment. Amish quilts contain the highest quality of construction and stitching, and, sometimes, the wonderful stitch patterns (scrolls, feathers) contrast with the simple backgrounds of their quilts. Applique quilts: These quilts use a French needlework technique where fabric pieces are sewn onto another piece of material to create a design. Applique is used extensively in the quilting process and is not to be confused with patchwork. Patchwork pieces are joined together; applique is sewn on top of the whole piece. Baltimore album quilts: Baltimore album quilts came from Maryland in the early 1800s. Each block in the design of these quilts is appliqued differently, often in ornate floral patterns. Bangladeshi quilts: These quilts are made with layers of Saree cloth. Saree cloth is silk cloth used by women of India to wrap and fold around the body as a garment. The cloth is usually 40 to 60 inches wide by 6 yards long. These quilts are used as bedding or as decorative pieces. Bargello quilts: Bargello quilts are created with offset squares in an up-and-down geometric "V" pattern. The small squares of different fabrics and the colorful designs make these quilts true works of art. Hawaiian quilts: Hawaiian quilts are not pieced, and they usually showcase a large, symmetrical applique in the center of the quilt. Most often the background is white or another solid color. Patchwork quilts: Patchwork quilts are constructed of many small pieces of fabric which are put together in an improvised or irregular pattern. This is a well-known quilt style, and examples of historical patchwork quilts are found in many museums. Ralli quilts: Ralli quilts, sometimes known as rilli quilts, are traditional quilts made in India or Pakistan. There is an abundance of embroidery as well as applique on the patchwork patterns. Star quilts: Star quilts are created with a large star shape, or several star shapes, dominating the pattern. Wedding ring quilts: Wedding ring quilts are crafted in a design of interlocking rings. This pattern goes far back in history: in the fourth century it was used to decorate drinking cups in Rome. Wedding ring quilts are highly popular and make wonderful wedding gifts. If you're looking for a gift to please an engaged couple, you can't go wrong with a wedding quilt. Bedding always makes a significant gift for the bride and groom, and a quilt with coordinating Egyptian cotton sheets can be even better. View All Quilts Back to Guides Directory View All Quilts

There are basically three common types of mattresses used today: spring mattresses, memory foam mattresses, inflatable mattresses and feather beds. Each type has its own benefits. A mattress pad is a less expensive way to add comfort to your bed than purchasing a whole new mattress. With that said, if your mattress is lumpy or saggy, a mattress topper probably won't make much difference. If it is good, though, you have many different choices in material, price, and comfort. Whatever you get, just make sure you purchase the right size for your bed frame. Take a look below to learn more about the best-selling mattresses on the market.
